|Welcome to DecisionPoint.com! Or perhaps
I should say, welcome to my personal research facility, because
that's the first thing that makes Decision Point different --
I designed and built it for use in my own daily market research.
It wasn't conceptualized by a committee of venture capitalists
and built by developers, neither of whom understood technical
analysis. DecisionPoint.com began as a supplement to my Decision
Point Alert newsletter, but it quickly expanded into a research
tool intended to provide everything needed to perform a thorough
top down market analysis.
Successful trading and investing require three essential
analysis steps: (1) Determine the market trend; (2) evaluate
the market condition; and (3) identify specific opportunities
that are compatible with the trend and condition of the market.
DecisionPoint.com helps you quickly review daily market results
across a broad range of market indexes and sectors. Then you
can check market condition with our incredible collection of
market indicator charts. Finally, you can drill down to find
specific trades in our reports and chart books of pre-selected
groups of stocks and mutual funds.
The first advantage of being a Decision Point subscriber
is that it saves you time. There is a free Learning
Center that contains a good deal of what I have learned
during years of study and experience. If you study that material, it
should shave several years off your learning curve.
Save time on your daily market review. Sure, you can look
at charts of 50 market and sector indexes on other web sites
by entering 50 symbols (if you know the symbols), but on Decision
Point you can review those charts just by clicking links and
charts. You see, almost every one of our charts is a huge "button".
Click on it and it takes you to the next logical location.
The daily index tour lets you see 50 charts just by "clicking
through" -- it is amazingly fast.
Another way we save you time is by calculating and charting
commonly used market indicators like the Arms Index (TRIN),
McClellan Oscillator, Put/Call Ratios. Sure, you can do it
with spreadsheets yourself, but what is your time worth anyway?
You can find some of them on other web sites, but they won't
be as good as ours because we match up the indicator with its
derivative price index. Besides that, we have a load of proprietary
indicators you won't find anywhere else.
Do you specialize in a particular market index? Our Straight
allows you to drill through a series of indicators specific
to any of seven major market indexes -- NYSE, SPX, Nasdaq,
OEX, Dow, NDX, and Total Market. Besides getting the published
breadth and volume numbers for the NYSE and Nasdaq, we track
the individual stocks in the SPX, OEX, NDX, and Dow, so we
are able to calculate indicators specific to those market indexes.
Do you know anywhere else that you can find eight versions
of the McClellan Oscillator updated daily?
Our Trend and Condition chart pages arrange the charts
so that you can quickly assess the trend and condition of a
single market index in all three time frames.
Many of our features are designed to help you specialize
in a specific group of stocks or mutual funds. For example,
our Rydex Tracker is designed to deliver "everything
you could possibly want to know" about Rydex funds on a daily
basis. There is a daily report plus a Rydex chart book.
Oh, and our Chart Books -- we've got about 50 of them
covering the stocks in major market indexes and 31 market sectors.
Actually, we have a 6-month and a 2-year version of each, so
there are really about 100 chart books. But that's not the
best part. Our chart books present the charts in relative strength
order, so you can see the charts in the context of their rotation
within the group. Imagine seeing a group of charts sequenced
in an order designed to facilitate your analysis of the group
and each stock in it. And our chart books cover about 2000
stocks, mutual funds, and market indexes.
But wait, there's more! (Sorry 'bout that, but there really
is.) As you review a chart book and see an interesting chart,
click on it and our charting tool pops up so you can take a
closer look and run some technical studies. On the chart tool
is a link called "Gallery View". Click it and you get four
charts of the same symbol in different time frames -- 1-year
daily bar, 2-year daily bar, weekly bar, and monthly bar.
We have a vast archive of historical charts of our market
indicators, some going back to 1926. This allows you
to compare current activity with prior periods to see if
your conclusions are valid in the context of a wide range
of market conditions.
While there is a ton of stuff on DecisionPoint.com, you don't
have to look at every chart every day, but if you ever think, "Hmmm,
I wonder what that looks like", chances are we have a way for
you to find out. More important, we also probably have a way
for you to specialize in the area of your interest, or at least
enhance the resources available to your area of specialization.
There is no way I can do more than scratch the surface in
describing what is probably the richest and most unique technical
analysis resource available anywhere.
