Get It On
Main Line Investors, Inc. is dedicated to the preservation of capital in turbulent economic times, while offering conservative and aggressive investment educational impersonal strategies in prosperous times.
We offer both technical and fundamental market research and analysis, pulling together the key artifacts affecting equity, precious metals, currency, bond, and interest-rate impacted markets.
Our approach is to sift out the ratings-driven, self-serving “spin” the media and many Wall Street firms place upon market news and developments. We come clean with the truth each week in a concise, fun, and easy-to-digest executive summary for wise, fully-informed decision-making.
This newsletter service is not offering users specific investment advice, as that would require our knowledge of one's risk appetite, experience, and financial position, but rather focuses on general short-term trading opportunities via our key trend-finder indicator signals, as well the big picture, forecasting probable forthcoming market paths. Our signals can be incorporated in one's investment or trading strategies, but we suggest you consult your financial advisor before relying upon them. Our signals are not trading advice. We also offer a conservative balanced investment portfolio dynamic model with regular transactions that can be followed daily for the purpose of idea generation. The thinking here is, investors who can obtain market probabilities greater than 50% have a huge advantage, and it is our aim to assist in that process. We have developed buy and sell signal indicators for the blue chip S&P 500 and Dow Industrials, as well as for the Russell 2000, the NASDAQ 100, and the HUI Amex Gold Bugs index. These are breadth momentum, and supply and demand measures. We also generate daily Demand Power and Supply Pressure measurements for the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ 100 which provide subscribers with information regarding the quality of each day's move, and whether buyers or sellers were more responsible for that day's move. For example, major declines cannot occur without rising supply pressure. We monitor that every day.
Here's how to understand how we view the various technical analysis bodies of study that we cover and present regularly:
We trade off our key trend-finder indicators, the Purchasing Power Indicators and the Stochastic signals. We do not trade off of Elliott Wave, or Cycle analysis, or Analogs, or Patterns, or Divergences, or Seasonals or other interesting technical analysis we present. If our rhetoric points out risks over the horizon from these supportive technical tools, that is perfectly appropriate background information so that we can be ready for turns. However, we trade the PPI and Stochastics, the 10 day average Advance/Decline Line Indicators, but not the other stuff. Hope this is clear. Our PPI and Stochastic indicators are objective, market data generated indicators, with no judgment, opinion, or bias skewing them. Our Purchasing Power Indicators have performed brilliantly in the S&P 500, Dow Industrials, and NASDAQ 100, and HUI against the odds of Elliott Wave analysis, cycles, seasonals, percent above indicators, analogs, divergences, and patterns. The 10 day average Advance/Decline Line Indicators have performed quite well. This doesn’t mean EW, patterns, divergences, analogs, seasonals, or cycles are not worth studying. Quite the opposite. They prep us, map for us, identify risks, confirm the PPI and Stochastic signals, and give an overall flavor of intermediate-term potential in trends. If rallies occur against the grain of this vast body of technical analysis, it alerts us to possible interventions. We present these market analysis approaches as supportive to the guts of this newsletter, which is our key trend-finder indicators, and 10 day average Advance/Decline Line Indicators as summarized on pages one and two of every issue.
Q. How do we combine the risks noted in the supportive technical analyses studied versus what our key trend-finder indicator signals suggest? A. We increase or decrease the amount invested, tighten or loosen stops, raise or lower price targets, etc… Our key trend-finder indicators measure breadth momentum (14 day and 30 day Stochastics, and A/D Line Indicators), and measure Supply and Demand momentum (Purchasing Power Indicators).
If one is not a risk taker, or not a trader, but want a solid, sleep-well-at-night, investment strategy, we offer the conservative balanced investment portfolio which is shown in the Guest Articles section as a model for ideas. Some segments of that portfolio will make use of our key trend-finder indicators as well. We update this regularly and present a month-end inventory snapshot of where we stand after that month's transactions, also in the Guest Articles section.Transactions are reported in the daily and weekend newsletters as they occur.
