QUESTION: I do not want to follow every market swing. I want
to build some profitable portfolio for a longer time frame. Is
StockMarketMirror software useful for determining entry and exit points
for buying and selling a portfolio and for suggesting some suitable
ANSWER: That's what StockMarketMirror software is all
about. There is no need to follow every market swing for a profitable
trading. You can also watch "Simple price swings" as visualized by the
appropriate command of StockMarketMirror software. The command is
doing the decomposition of stock price into linear price trend and
relative deviation of price from the linear price trend (using method
of linear regression). The point is, to buy stocks when the price is
lower than the linear price trend and to sell stocks, when the price
is greater than the linear price trend. This method can be regarded as
mild form of market timing, triggering trading signals less frequently
than other methods of market timing.
QUESTION: Is it possible to run market timing calculations
one hour before the market close, in order to buy stocks immediately if
the BUY signal is triggered?
ANSWER: The answer is no, because updated stock history
files are not available for downloading, one hour before market close.
But in spite of that, in some relevant cases, the upcoming market
timing signal can be estimated, one hour before market close. Let us
suppose, that yesterday, market timing calculation was close to
triggering BUY signal, showing clear up-trend of market timing signal.
Let us also suppose that today, one hour before market close, intraday
chart is indicating, that market will be closed in positive numbers.
Natural conclusion is that BUY signal is going to be triggered and
immediate buy orders can be issued.

stock symbols recommended in the report or you can use your own

additional benefit of minimizing your risk of loss.

signal(s), you have to give sell orders at your broker or portfolio
testing web site, selling all stocks of your portfolio.
