Ways to Utilize the TrendSpider Platform

You’ve heard it a thousand times, but here it is again: there is no surefire way to win every time when trading in the markets. That said, if there is just one thing that really separates successful traders from the less successful ones, it’s having a concrete strategy. Here are five interesting and unique trading and analysis strategies that are enabled by TrendSpider’s technology.

Strategy #1: Multi-Timeframe Trading: Single Chart, Multiple Timeframes of Data

Use a single chart to view trendlines from multiple timeframes in order to expose long-term trends that short-term traders generally miss. Use a multiple chart layout to view up to 8 timeframes of trendline data at once. Create alerts on any trendline from any timeframe to nudge you right when your trades are setting up. This game-changing feature allows you to see the forest and the trees at the same time, and react to relevant price movements in a timely way without the eyestrain. Click Here to Read More

Strategy #5: Long-Term Swing Confirmation Setups

On balance, a longer-term swing trader approach can decrease the chances of over-trading and allow price cycles to fully materialize naturally, cutting out some of the noise. However, because these trades take longer, and generally involve volatile assets purchased at opportune times, they can be risky.  Finding confirmation when swing trading is key. TrendSpider makes this easier by automating a wide range of analysis techniques so that you can evaluate opportunities faster without doing as much of the grunt work yourself. This blog post takes a look at some examples of confirmations to watch for that can be revealed by automated analysis. Click Here to Read More
