Question: What is "Profit From Prices"?

Answer: By "Profit from Prices", we mean that it is possible to trade stocks just by using four daily stock prices- Open price, High, Low and the Close price. In other words, we strongly believe that all that is needed for profit in stock trading are just stock prices.

There are hundreds of theories, strategies and books to help traders in their trading of stocks. Some of them use fancy computer programs and complicated mathematical models while some others use various technical indicators and stock charts. While some traders use economic or company specific data/news/analysis in their trading decisions, many others use Options, Volatility or RSI and ROC type momentum indicators. Such a list is endless. However we at Profit From Prices believe that for trading stocks, all that is required is just four daily prices: Open price, High price, Low price and the Close price. With understanding of Profit From Prices' simple yet powerful signals, one can identify which stocks to buy or sell and when just by paying attention to daily stock prices. Hence the name "Profit from Prices". As you will find in few moments, "Profit From Prices" is probably one of most logical, simple but effective and timely method for identifying which stocks to trade and when.

Question: Have you back-tested your signals? How did they do?

Back testing these signals is too much for my one-man mission!. However on April 15, 2005, I backtested two of my favorite signals for the period from Dec 31, 2003 to 29-JUN-2004. Here is what I found:

For the U TURN (BUY) signal:
Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 22.82% versus the ROI of ^SPX was: 4.81%.
(Click here for an EXCEL file with all details about his back-testing.)

For the U TURN (SELL) signal:
Annualized Return on Investment (ROI): 24.60% versus the ROI of ^SPX was: 4.81%.
(Click here for an EXCEL file with all details about his back-testing)

Question: What makes you believe that your seemingly easy theory is powerful enough to generate profit in stock trading?
Answer: During my investing and trading career, I read lot of books and talked with variety of traders in order to find out something that could help me make consistent profit in stock trading. I had learnt about various technical indicators and different approaches to stock trading but none of them seemed to work consistently and accurately. Then I came across this approach that showed me how to unleash tremendously useful information for trading stocks just by looking at four daily prices, Open, High, Low and Close. This changed my fortune and since then I have been consistently able to trade stocks profitably. In a few minutes, you will see yourself that this approach is not only very simple and logical but is also one of the most effective and timely.

Profit From Prices trading approach
Is very logical: Do you know what causes the price of any stock to goes up or goes down? As we all know there are various factors that affect stock prices. They are press releases, industry and economic news, mergers, earnings announcements, analysts' upgrades, Fed interest rate decisions, new jobs data, currency values, gold and oil price, etc. This list is endless. However if you think for a moment, it is not difficult to see that it is the change in the demand and/or supply that is really causing any stock price to move. Price of a stock will go up when demand (buying) for it is going up and/or when supply (selling pressure) is becoming weak. Similarly the stock price will tend to go down if the demand (buying) becomes weaker and/or when supply (selling) intensifies. No magic here. Instead of getting into individual factors that could affect stock prices, Profit From Prices approach looks directly at this very basic Demand and Supply dynamics in the marketplace and this is what makes it one of the most logical methods for trading stocks..

It is very simple: As mentioned above, there are thousands of individual factors that affect stock prices. However if you are using one or few of those factors in your trading decisions, you are missing out on remaining factors that also impact stock prices. However with ProfitFromPrices method, we look directly at the changes in underlying demand and/or supply which reflects impact of every new development and every decision of every individual market participant. And to identify such changes in demand and supply, all we need is just four daily prices, Open, High, Low and Close prices for the stock, and there isn't any complex math or formulas involved. Just some simple basic comparisons. Nothing could be simpler than that!

It is very effective: Profit From Prices signals give you very nice payoff. For success in trading, we need to have more trades in profit than in loss and also more average profit per trade than average loss. PFP (Profit From Prices) signals have both these components. They usually result into more trades in profit than in losses. Not only that, they usually have a narrow margin for loss and a high margin for profit. We have found them to offer up to three times the profit than the size of risk undertaken. In other words, for a 500$ risk, one can expect to get profit of around 1000 to 1500$. This makes PFP one of the most effective trading approaches.

It is very timely: Most other systems have lousy timing. If you are looking at earnings announcements, you would find that quite often stock has already appreciated prior to the fantastic earnings release. If you are using ROC, RSI or other overbought/oversold indicators, I am sure you have seen a stock spend weeks and months in overbought or oversold territory before it changes its course. On the other hand, if you are using Moving Average or MACD type of indicators, you probably have seen stocks already appreciated prior to the Buy signal given by the system or you might see the stock price going down after you act on the Buy signal. I don't mean to criticize any system. They don't do a good job because they are too mechanical and they fail to look at many other factors that are also simultaneously influencing the stock's price. On the other hand, Profit From Prices system gives you a Buy signal on the day (or on the second day) the stock touched a new low price. If the signal is successful, your purchase of the stock could have taken place on the very day it formed its bottom. This is possible because ProfitFromPrices system is always looking for powerful shifts in demand and/or supply of the stock and hence they have a very impressive timing.

Thus PFP trading approach is one of the most logical and simple yet very effective and timely.

Question: Sounds interesting. Can you tell us more about how Profit From Prices system attempts to determine changes in demand and/or supply of any stock?

Answer: Sure, let me try. In a paragraph or two, I can not tell you everything but let me try to tell you two important things I try to unleash from prices: Emotions and Actions. For measuring emotions, I compare any day's Open price to the previous day's Close price. For Actions, I simply compare a day's Close price to that day's Open price. Sounds simple. It is but this is also very powerful with regard to capturing immediate stock price trends.

In order to assess the near-future price movement for any stock, we have to see how the market (all individual and institutions together) is thinking and acting about it. I call thinking part Emotions and the acting part Actions. Changes in Emotions can be classified as Positive, Negative or no change. Similarly we will classify changes in aggregate Actions as Selling, Buying or no change. Now when Emotions and Actions both align in the same direction, we can very well predict in which direction the stock price is heading and we can take appropriate trading position to benefit from it. Now the question is: how can we find changes in Emotions and Actions? Sounds like a tough question but luckily, with prices, this becomes pretty simple. As I keep telling, keep looking at the prices and they will tell you everything we need to know for trading stocks.

Emotions: For this, compare today's Open price to yesterday's Close price. Most of the time, there is no significant change between them and hence no change in overall Emotions. However a stock that has been going down for quite some time due to "negative" Emotions and "selling" Actions if opens today at a price significantly higher than yesterday's Close price, we can take this as a positive change in Emotions. Something must have happened since yesterday's market close causing many market participants to demand it at a higher price today. (If it had opened lower, I would take as continuation of the negative Emotions and hence creating or maintaining a Sell position).

Actions: However a positive change in Emotions is not a complete story to buy any stock! Emotions have to result in positive Actions too for this stock's price to really change its downward course. It has to cause lower supply or higher demand! How do we take account of the aggregate Actions in the marketplace? We can do this by comparing today's Close price to today's Open price. If the stock closed higher than the Open price for the day, it just means that the demand/buying for the stock was more powerful than the supply/selling in the stock. This means Action was also positive.

Just to give you an example, we can use this information as mentioned in the table below.

Emotions Actions What it means? Trading implications
from negative to positive from Selling to Buying The demand is going up and/or supply is going down Buy
from negative to positive no change Emotions are getting better but there is no significant buying happening yet Wait. Chances are reversal is close so wait for new signals.
From negative to positive Selling continues People are still selling despite some positive development Avoid.
None from Selling to Buying The demand seems to be going up and/or supply is going down Watch out for additional confirmations/ buy signals
       

As you will see in Profit From Prices eBook, these two tests (on Open and Close Prices) are combined with some other tests on prices and volume data to create individual PFP signals. Every signal has a specific set of tests and guideline about how to act on it, what stop-loss to use and when to book profit.

Here is an example:

U TURN (BUY) signal

Short Description: U- TURN (BUY) signal takes place when a stock in a downtrend, opens lower than previous day's Low price but manages to close higher than previous day's Open as well as Close prices with noticeable jump in volume.

CONDITIONS:

  1. The stock has to be in a continued downtrend.
  2. Today's Low price (TDL) has to be the LOWEST price for the stock over the last few days.
    (If it is the lowest for the last few weeks, we are likely to have a strong major trend reversal signal- a strong form of U-TURN. However if Previous Day's Low price is the lowest for only the last three to ten days, we have a signal that is more likely to mark the beginning of a Correction or the end of a Reaction - a weak form of U-TURN).
  3. Today's Open price (TDO) has to be LOWER than Previous Day's Low price (PDL).
    TDO < PDL (The more the difference between TDO and PDL, the more powerful the signal is going to be)
  4. Today's Close price (TDC) has to be HIGHER than Previous Day's Close price (PDC).
    TDC > PDC
  5. Today's Close price (TDC) has to be HIGHER than Previous Day's Open price
    (PDO). TDC > PDO
  6. Today's Volume has to be decisively HIGHER than the normal volume over the last few days or Previous Day's volume. If the above conditions were fulfilled, you would most likely see a decisive jump in stock volume today. If you don't see a jump in the volume today, the signal loses some of its strength.

ACTION:
There are two primary variations of this signal as regards to Condition 2. The signal can take place at the end of a major trend Here you can expect the stock price or index to go up to the tune of 20%! So as soon as you have a U-TURN (BUY) in a major trend, you should close short positions and you can also initiate fresh long positions to take advantage of this new emerging up-trend.

In the second variation, U-TURN takes place somewhere in the middle but not after a sustained trend. So Today's Low price may be the lowest price for only the last three to ten days, but not for the last few weeks! So the signal here may just mean the beginning or end of a Reaction/Correction. So you can make new trades to take advantage of the price movement over the next three to ten days.

STOP-LOSS
Keep a Stop-loss at Signal Day's Low prices (minus 1%).

TARGET:
The strong form of this signal indicates around 20 percent appreciation in the stock price from the low price on the Signal day.

Question: What types of signals are discussed in PFP eBook?

Answer: I have grouped various signals into following categories:

  • Trend Reversal signals: there around around 8 to 10 of these different signals that help you capture most of the trend reversals for primary as well as secondary trend reversals. Some signals are very powerful and they tell on the very day a months old downtrend is ending with a very close stoploss. If the signal is right, you might have bought the stock on the day it touched its low price. If the signal turns out to be wrong, you will be out with a small loss.
    These signals also help you find start and end of smaller trends which I call reactions and corrections.
  • Short Term trading signals: These signals are useful for trading positions that can be carried out from one day to up to 10/15 trading days.
  • Event based signals: This signals are applied on significant days for the stock like when Earnings numbers are released or when split occurs or when its Options expire or even on the beginning of the week (Mondays). These signals are very useful for positions over next 1 to 3/5 days.
  • Chart based signals: There are some signals for which you need to look at the charts to identify them.

Question:How ProfitFromPrices differ from regular technical analysis of stocks? Both seem to be using price and volume data.

Answer: That is true. However most technical analysts use charts, patterns or some type of statistical indicator to determine what to buy and when. However most PFP signals do not require you to use chart or even a calculator. Here is an example of how one PFP signal can be identified in any stock.

U TURN (BUY) signal

Conditions:

  1. The stock has to be in a continued downtrend.
  2. Today's Low price (TDL) has to be the LOWEST price for the stock over the last few days.
    (If it is the lowest for the last few weeks, we are likely to have a strong major trend reversal signal- a strong form of U-TURN. However if Previous Day's Low price is the lowest for only the last three to ten days, we have a signal that is more likely to mark the beginning of a Correction or the end of a Reaction - a weak form of U-TURN).
  3. Today's Open price (TDO) has to be LOWER than Previous Day's Low price (PDL).
    TDO < PDL (The more the difference between TDO and PDL, the more powerful the signal is going to be)
  4. Today's Close price (TDC) has to be HIGHER than Previous Day's Close price (PDC).
    TDC > PDC
  5. Today's Close price (TDC) has to be HIGHER than Previous Day's Open price
    (PDO). TDC > PDO
  6. Today's Volume has to be decisively HIGHER than the normal volume over the last few days or Previous Day's volume. If the above conditions were fulfilled, you would most likely see a decisive jump in stock volume today. If you don't see a jump in the volume today, the signal loses some of its strength.
