RTT Market Timer
Building mechanical market robots are always tricky, because the data inputs change and so does the market. However we feel our RTT Market Timer is very good. The RTT Market Timer data is sourced from NYSE Advance and Decline data, CBOE Volatility index and a few custom RTT indicators. The NYSE data is the best data to source market direction as it takes cold cash to have more advancing than declining stocks, thus it is a pure money flow dataset.

The RTT Market Timer is not designed to be blindly followed, it is designed for educational reasons and to help assist with Wyckoff 2.0 market reading tools (Wyckoff market phase, Gann Angles and Hurst Cycles). Below are shown all the mechanical signals that occurred during the time frame of the chart, but in real time we may not trade each on the day of occurrence, we may delay the entry until the market is clear, or not enter at all if the market is very ugly. The human touch allows for better performance, of course as the member sees all we see the member can do as they wish.

You can get access to RTT Market Timer via the RTT Plus service. The RTT Plus service will hold your hand through each signal providing guidance and leadership on how to use the dataset.

'RTT Plus' members can view our timer performance going back 30 years and it is not bad. Plus within the Members FAQ/Help you can learn more about how to getter performance when using the RTT Timer (see number 37 titled 'Getting the best out of the RTT Market Timer)

Also and a very important point RTT Market Timer is the tip of the sword for the Wyckoff 2.0 approach.

NOTE: RTT Market Timer has been live for 5 years for private use, and only recently (2012) been made live via 'RTT Plus' to members. Members can see results from the present to 30 years back, there is no curve fitting or fudging, the code is the same for current data as it is for the data 30 years back.

There are three major signal types, all buys/longs:
Blue Triangles: Volatility is mild, Advance and decline data are slightly bullish.
Red Triangles: Simply the blue triangles with little more volatility.
Purple Triangles: Simply the blue or red triangles, with extreme volatility readings.

There are also many minor signal types that help read the market smaller swings: Spikes in volatility, Adv/Dec Oscillator bullish or bearish, SP100/OEX percentage above 100 SMA, etc

Very important when using RTT Timer:
- The timer is mainly a long/buy only model, there are special rules for a bear market.
- Apply with Wyckoff 2.0 logic (Gann Angles, Hurst Cycles, Wyckoff phase).
- Apply stops and money management.
- Can be used to trade the underlying index (ie SP500/NYSE).
- Best results come after signals of 'signs of strength' have been applied to strong relative strength (alpha) stocks and ETFs.

NOTE: RTT Market Timer signals are actually Wyckoff signs of strength (SOS). These can be traded on the day of occurrence or our preferred method is to trade the Wyckoff test associated with the SOS (subject to market conditions).

Chart 1 : Review the buy/long signals between Jan 2011 and Feb 2012. Blue, red and purple triangles.

Chart3 : Members can see the RTT Timer going back 30 years. Below is from 2003 to 2011 and as you can see not bad at all.

NOTE: The reader must understand that not all triangles are acted upon, after all they a calculated mechanically and are blind to the market risks of the moment. What the RTT Market Timer triangles do accomplish are critical moments of strength that deserve your immediate attention.

Here is a hypothetical example of how to use the signals:

Investing Quote...

..."When I couldn’t play according to my system, which was based on study and experience, I went in and gambled. I hoped to win, instead of knowing that I ought to win on form."...

Jesse Livermore

..“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”..

Benjamin Franklin

..“Because of the extreme challenge, one must commit full attention to it.” Market speculation is “no different than trying to be a successful doctor or lawyer … you simply must devote yourself full-time to the study of your craft”...

Bernard Baruch

.."It's not whether you're right or wrong that's important, but how much money you make when you're right and how much you lose when you're wrong"..

George Soros

.."To cause high prices, all the Fed will do will be to lower the re discount rate..., producing an expansion of credit and a rising stock market; then when, business men are adjusted to these conditions, it can check, prosperity in mid career by arbitrarily raising the rate of interest. It can cause the pendulum of a rising and falling market to swing gently back and forth by slight changes in the discount rate, or cause violent fluctuations by a greater rate variation and in either case it will possess inside information as to financial conditions and advance knowledge of the coming change, either up or down. This is the most dangerous advantage ever placed in the hands of a special privilege class by any Government that ever existed. The are private, conducted for the purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money. They know in advance when to create panics to their advantage, and when to stop panic."...

We at hold the view that a mix of stock chart technical analysis, Richard Wyckoff, William Gann and Jim Hurst methods plus market fundamentals allows the investor to formulate a very sound market opinion. These attributes are mutually inclusive and must be weighted equally before investing or trading in any Stock, ETF, Currency, Bond, Commodity, CFD or Mutual Fund
