Description

MASTER TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
Technical analysis has become extensive in recent years. We study the psychology of technical analysis and why they work 60 to 70% of the time. There are several categories of technical analysis – Price indicators, Support and Resistance levels, Momentum indicators, Volume indicators, Oscillators and Statistical price movement indicators. This is again an area where the KISS rule applies – Keep It Simple S—–. We cut through all the noise and show you why there are 4 or 5 indicators you should study and that’s all you really need to make informed entry and exit decisions. Technical analysis is a self-fulfilling prophecy and gives deep insight into crowd behavior.

What you will master   
 
•What is Technical Analysis and why is crowd psychology an important factor in markets
•Why does technical analysis work only 60 to 70% of the time
•Why are Price indicators called “lagging” indicators
•What are potential “leading” indicators
•A study of Moving averages and which ones are helpful
•What are the best indicators for short, medium and long term trends
•Why do we need a “confluence” of indicators to make a decision
•Why the Bollinger Bands are a cool indicator
•Adjusting technical indicators to match your trading timeframe
•Why technical analysis “works until it doesn’t”
 
SECTION 1   
Lecture I –  What is Technical Analysis
Technical analysis is primarily a study of Crowd psychology and crowd behavior. If a certain number of people act in unison at a certain time, and other people can observe this group of people taking a certain action, then they are motivated to join in. And it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Technical analysis is a very powerful force in the markets, but it has limitations. This Introductory lecture explains these details.
 
Lecture 2 – Crowd psychology and Crowd behavior
What is crowd psychology and why does it matter ? In this lecture, we study the S&P 500 Index over the last 20 years, and also observe a certain technical pattern that is currently playing out textbook-style. How could this pattern impact the markets this year ? 
 
Lecture 3 –  Limitations of Technical Analysis
What are the limitations of Technical analysis – when does it work, and when does it not work. Knowing when it does not work is as important as knowing when it works.
 
SECTION 2   
Section 2 is a detailed discussion of all the types of Technical analysis indicators. You have various kinds – Price Indicators, Momentum indicators, Statistical and Volatility indicators, Support and Resistance, Volume indicators and Oscillators. Each of these indicator types are broken down in detail as well as insightful tips on their usage and interpretation.
 
SECTION 3   
Section 3 is a complete case study set of 5 stocks – 
1) Apple (AAPL) – 1 Year Chart. And how AAPL gave 3 points of entry for the perfect Bearish trade.
2) Priceline (PCLN) – No clear long-term signals, but a short term bearish trade could be played out.
3) Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) – an absolutely amazing Statistical indicator gives away the perfect “Long” signal
4) The Gold ETF GLD – Hidden inside a very bearish chart is the potential for a reversal trade
5) And on the Google (GOOG) charts, we can study the battle between the Bulls and Bears at a recent breach of Google’s all-time high.
 
Applying correct Technical Analysis techniques can set you with a fantastic trade entry. If you get your trade entry correctly, you have just increased your chances of a profitable trade a whole lot.

Options Mentor, Financial markets educator, Trader, Investor
Knowledge. Strategy. Execution. 

    Hari Swaminathan is the founder of OptionTiger, a cutting-edge Options mentoring company, and a full-circle educator in all areas of Financial Markets, Hari has developed several proprietary Intellectual Property “methods and approaches” around enhancing base case Options strategies (which favor the Market Makers) and turns that deficit into a massive EDGE on the trader’s side.

Hari has a Bachelors degree in Engineering from College of Engineering, Pune, India, and MBA’s from Columbia University in NYC and London Business School in London UK. 

Hari is self-taught in Options and actively trading these instruments for almost 10 years, mostly through trial and error. Trial and error in general, is an excellent method of learning, but applied in this context, trial and error CAN BE EXPENSIVE. My courseware focuses on this aspect mostly, so you can avoid losing money in the 1 to 2 years when you’re learning.




THE OPTIONS GAME

  More than ever, it has become important for normal people to take charge of their financial situation, and truly understand how financial markets, and the various asset classes, trading nuances really work. Investing in the financial markets is no longer a HANDS-OFF ACTIVITY. There’s no point blaming financial advisors after the fact. Now, it’s become crucial for everyone to do “their OWN homework”, so you can decide for yourself whether something is good or risky. This is of course easier said than done.

My mission is to educate everyday people on the deep, strategic underpinnings of the stock markets, and exploit that knowledge with the use of OPTIONS.  THERE IS NOTHING RANDOM about the markets. There are surprises all the time, but there’s always a method behind every madness. And my goal is to get you to this point of understanding and awareness. That’s when it starts to fit in. 

Knowledge, Education, Crafting Breakthrough strategy, Technical analysis, Following Smart Money, Risk management, Disciplined Money management, and near flawless Execution approaches are just a few of the crucial points emphasized in all the Courses. Video-based education courseware, Practical workshops, several elite proprietary Advanced systems, Proprietary Algorithms and Customized Technical indicators, Live Trading programs are just a few things we offer. The goal is to provide a “full circle” education in the Markets, which is necessary before it starts “fitting in”. 

Let’s break down the Options game in a realistic manner. 

The Pluses

1. Options were invented out of thin air. And the people who invented them won Nobel Prizes for their invention. It is purely a “Mathematical” concept. 

2. This gives rise to very complex but interesting  analytical scenarios. It also gives us the ability to model Options with a set of tools like a car dashboard. This data is embedded in the mathematical formulas that underpin Options structure itself.

3. Because everything in Options is defined in mathematical terms, it’s also important to realize that OPTIONS will always be the same. Forever. Unless they discover serious flaws in the formulas and models used by these Nobel winners. 

4. Options and Chess have LARGE overlaps. You may agree that Chess is a game of “skill”. It’s a game of Strategy and depends upon how well you can plan (ahead) to attack, defend or take a neutral position. We also believe that Chess is strategy-focused and depends upon certain mathematical principles. Why or how do we know this – The reason we know it’s a game of skill is : Try to play 100 chess games with Kasparov or Anand. Normal people are almost guaranteed a loss in all 100 games. So it has to be a game of skill. And why do we know its underlying features are mathematics based. The fact that a computer like Deep Blue beat the GrandMaster Garry Kasparov in 1997.

5. Lastly, You MUST believe this completely –  Options, just like Chess, are a “skill set”, and requires acquiring a deep set of analytical skills much more so than most skill sets in the world, and they can only be MASTERED over a period of time. But, there is a very powerful light at the end of this tunnel. You build a skill set for life.  Age, Geographical location, Lifestyle, or Weather are no longer a barrier to creating consistent income streams, regardless of who you are, where you are, or how old you are. 

This is very POWERFUL stuff. 

Now let’s look at the negatives. This is what most people will NOT tell you. Anyone that tells you Options are SIMPLE, and you can make extra ordinary income easily, is JUST NOT TRUE. I will tell you Options can be brutal if you simply apply speculative methodologies. And once you can develop a SYSTEMATIC approach to every situation (which is the Real Game), you’ll be well on your way to consistent performance.




MINUSES




Options are easily the most fascinating financial instrument with several upside benefits, but also has an equally powerful set of negatives. 

1. Options have a steep learning curve. Don’t expect to become Kasparov in a couple of months. Market Makers who are 99% of the time, the counter party to all Options trades, are Options professionals, with 10 to 20 years of experience, in performing their “legal duty” of providing liquidity. 

2. If you’re interested in Options, try to NOT approach it with a mindset or requirement of making money. This is not only NOT going to happen, but it’s a recipe for disaster. It’s like a student of Medicine wanting to practice their skills after 2 months of study. 

3) As someone that has self-learnt Options and through making mistakes from Trial and Error, I can tell you Options trading is not something you should take lightly. You will hear people talking of fantastic triple and quadruple digit returns. I’m here to be brutally honest with you – 

– Be very very careful in the first 12 months of Options trading. 

– This is when everyone is the most vulnerable to losing money. 

– Your main objective during this time is to focus on learning this craft 

Having said that, if you can get past the first 12 months and acquire the expertise in a systematic manner with systematic approaches to every situation, true financial independence awaits. But you have some serious but exciting work to do before you get there, and I’m here to help you in this journey.
