Tracking The Stock Market


Tracking the stock market is one of the most important parts of your investing process.

Why? Because market conditions can make or break your trade, overwhelming even the best investment.

I'm sure you've heard the following sayings: "even turkeys can fly in a windstorm", "a rising tide lifts all boats", or even "never try to catch a falling knife".

Basically, all those phrases mean that the general market can move stocks up or down regardless of their underlying fundamental strength or weakness. This is what makes the markets seem irrational, and why tracking the stock market is so important.

As a rule of thumb, 3/4 of all stocks will rise and fall with the general market. Reviewing price and volume changes can help you track the stock market and figure out the current trend (uptrend, flat, downtrend).

When markets are in an uptrend, you'll want to add to your positions or look for new opportunities. When market are in a downtrend, you'll want to lock in your gains by watching your existing positions for signs of institutional selling, and avoid buying new positions until the next uptrend takes hold.

Below are my weekly attempts at track the US stock market, which you can use as a starting point to craft your own process.
