Stock Indicators in Python
I have been fooling around with Python as a possible tool for technical analysis. I coded a few of my favorite indicators. The GitHub link is here. Bollinger Bands Keltner Channels RSI MACD ATR ADX Stochastics I don’t think I … Continue reading
Homebrew Correlation Indicator
The CBOE index of implied correlation made the news recently, with a high of 72. This index, JCJ, is not as wellknown as the one for implied volatility, but the two are linked. Low correlation suppresses volatility, due to the … Continue reading
190 Weeks without a Correction
It seems like pullbacks have been really small lately, so I whipped up a new indicator called Percent off Peak, and took a look at the history of corrections. The indicator simply ratchets itself up as new peaks form, and … Continue reading

Levy Ratio Dispersion
I have been experimenting with Levy ratio dispersion as a measure of market breadth. Saturday, I posted this chart on Stock Twits, showing lower lows, lower highs, and declining RSI for $OEXA200R. The chart shows that 87 of the S&P … Continue reading
The Dot Com Bubble of 2000
Many bloggers are seeing a bubble right now, so I dusted off my analysis of the dot com bubble. Bubbles are different from normal tops. They rise sharply, and then pop. From roughly 5000 down to 3000, the NASDAQ composite … Continue reading
