One of the most common questions I receive from clients and traders is, What is the best indicator to use for signalling trend changes and avoiding false signals? My answer is that there isn’t a bulletproof go-to indicator or system, and don’t believe anyone who claims there is. In my analysis work, I have a basket of indicators that I look at, and the more indicators that align to indicate a trend or a change, the greater the confidence I have in the potential move.

Emerging markets are now the market du jour. It makes sense: The MSCI Emerging Markets Index is up 25 percent year to date, vs. a 10 percent gain for the S&P 500.

They said it was over and that the bubble had popped. But Bitcoin had different plans.

After the Sunday brunch-time massacre on July 19, when prices briefly plummeted to $1,850, the bellwether digital currency rebounded over 50% to $2,900 in less than a week as miners signaled support for a measure that would avoid the chaos of splitting its blockchain in two. That vote on splitting the cryptocurrency is due Tuesday at 12:20 pm GMT, and should add some short-term volatility no matter the outcome.

When you find yourself touting your market prowess, like so many others as of late, it’s a good idea to step back and ask yourself: “When do you think most mistakes are made—when you are acting rationally or emotionally?”
