Our Market Trend Advisory is a simple yet powerful rules-based market timing system that tracks the market’s trend, market internals, and market sentiment each day.  

The Market Trend Advisory acts like an X-ray that let's you see beneath the surface so you can track the health and structure of the market's trend.  And you get powerful signals as to when the market trend is about to change, so you can take action at the appropriate time.

During 2020, you would have taken part in the rally in January and February, completely avoided the coronavirus bear market crash from the end of February through early April, and caught the historic rally that began on April 6, 2020.

And during 2021, you would have been fully invested during the uptrends and minimizing your exposure when the market turned choppy.

And during far 

How It Works

We use the rules developed by Investor's Business Daily's Market School to track the market each day and generate buy, sell, or hold actions based on the Nasdaq and S&P 500 stock market indexes.  We added our own customizations plus sentiment and market internal indicators to provide a comprehensive view of the markets each day.

Market School began 10 years ago as an advanced seminar through IBD and eventually was offered as a home study course.  Over the years it has a proven track record of catching ALL the major market moves.

Here is the performance of Market School versus the Nasdaq index over a 42-year period:

Market School performance 1973-2015

As a trend following system, it achieves outstanding performance because it's designed to get you into every major market uptrend and keep you out of every market downtrend.  

This is extremely important because 75% of all stocks follow the overall market trend!

In addition, your portfolio's overall volatility and drawdown would have been greatly reduced compared to the Nasdaq's performance.

By following the signals, you’ll take the right actions when the market is in a profitable uptrend, when the trend may be changing, or when it’s in a money-losing downtrend or market correction.

Get An Objective View Of The Market

Whether you’re a shorter-term stock trader or long-term investor, you’ll get the objective market trend signals you need each day to become a successful and consistently profitable investor. 

And when the markets get tough, it will helps you avoid making investing decisions based on emotions, guesses, opinions, or ego which are almost always wrong and costly.

Following a system that makes you invest unemotionally will also greatly reduce worries and frustrations when your stock positions are under pressure.

Get Objective Answers

As our signals are based on what the market is actually doing, you'll find it extremely helpful in answering tough questions such as:

  • How much exposure should I have in the market?
  • When should I add to positions or buy more stocks?
  • How can I know when a market uptrend may be topping out?
  • When should I sell to take profits?
  • How can I avoid a correction or bear market that will wipe out any gains I have?
  • When should I get back in the markets after a correction?

Works With Both Individual Stocks and ETF Trading

No matter if you're investing in individual stocks or exchange traded funds (ETFs), it works during all market cycles to deliver outstanding results.

"As a new subscriber to the Market Trend Advisory, all I can say is "WOW"!   I have been searching for a system like this to help with my investing and market timing for years.  I no longer have to rely on guesswork, opinions or predictions, but rather, on facts and current market data."

Our Market Trend Advisory Lets You:

Use Market Timing To Trade With The Trend

Our Buy, Hold, or Sell signals allow you to profit from changing market trends. To be successful, you must trade with the trend or direction of the stock market.  

The trend is your friend. Trading with the trend automatically has you invested with increasing exposure when the markets are going up.  You make money on the ride up and take profits before the markets top and heads back down.

Remember, 75% of stocks will follow the general market direction.

Follow The "Big Money"

50% of the market’s moves are driven by big institutional investors like mutual funds, ETFs, banks, pension funds, and hedge funds.

It’s their immense buying and selling power that drives the market’s trend up and down.

So, you MUST know what the big players are doing so you can trade in the same direction as they do, no matter if you’re buying individual stocks, mutual funds, or ETFs.

Moving in and out of the market based on institutional buying and selling has proven to be one of the most effective ways to get better results in the stock market.

This means buying and holding only when the large institutions are buying, and selling or staying out when they are selling.

The way to do this is to keep track of the stock market indexes movements each day.  This is the ONLY way to know when the markets are in a buying mood or when they are in a selling mood.

Reduce Or Eliminate Emotions

Using a system is the only way to keep emotions out of investing.

Reacting emotionally to the markets puts investors on an emotional roller coaster: 

  • You worry about losing hard-earned profits…
  • You worry about selling too soon…
  • You worry about selling too late, after most of your profits have disappeared…
  • You sell at the bottom and buy at the top…
  • You even worry about being in the markets at all so you stay on the sidelines…

Investing emotionally almost always leads to poor decisions.  Your emotions will make you do the wrong thing at the wrong time.

FEB - MARCH 2020

We Avoided The Bear Market!

From January 2nd through February 21st, our system showed a strong uptrend with 100% market exposure. 

But on February 25th, our market count fell to 0.

This meant you would have moved from 100% invested to being completely out of the market, avoiding the 35% bear market correction that followed in March 2020.

Here's Our Actual Sell Signals:

April 2020 Through Sept 2020 Results:
Caught The Whole Powerful Uptrend

The system marked a powerful new uptrend on April 6th. You would have been 100% invested again by April 22nd on both indexes until September 23rd.  Many leading stocks and the QQQ ETF made huge gains during this period.

Here's Our Actual Buy Signals:

April 2021: Caught A New Uptrend

Here's What You Get:

To accommodate both beginners and more advanced traders, we present the data both in a Daily Summary and in the detailed trend data spreadsheet.  

Daily Market Trend Summary

This is the Daily Market Report Summary.  It gives you a quick overview of the most important signals that occur each day.

Market Trend Advisory Trend Summaries

Detailed Trend Data Spreadsheet

For traders who like to get into the data, we also have our detailed data spreadsheet.  It has lots of data that is color-coded for ease of use and in spotting trends.

We divide the daily report into three section: Market TrendMarket Internals, and Market Sentiment.

Section 1:
Market Trend

Each day you’ll see the current Market Trend for the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq.  

Our rules-based system provides the status of the market overall trend.

  • Market In Uptrend signal will help you enter the markets at the best time and keep you in the markets when it’s in an uptrend so you can make the most profits from your stock positions.
  • The Trend Uncertain signal helps you to cut back on new positions, or decide to hold or take some profits on existing positions..
  • The Market In Downtrend signal helps you lock in hard-earned profits.  Plus, it will help keep you out of the markets when the chances of making money are low.

The result is that you can time your trades so you get in at the best time, take profits at the most opportune time, and maximize your investment dollars.

Market Trend Recommended Actions

Each day our system generates recommended buy, hold, or sell actions based on the market data for each index.  The data is based on facts, not opinions or guesses.

These impartial recommendations will help you make informed decisions for your own trading.

Market Count & Stock Position Size Recommendations

By using various rules around the 21-day moving average, the 50-day moving average, and institutional selling days, the market count gives you the recommended position size based on the trend.

We provide recommended position sizes for growth stock investors as well as other types of investors (value, dividend, etc.)

Following the count will automatically have you more fully invested when there’s a strong trend to the market, and backing off when the trend becomes uncertain.

The market count is updated each day based on actual market technical action, not guesses or predictions. 

Market Commentary

Each day we include brief commentary on the day's market action.

Market Commentary

Section 2:
Market Internals

Market internals are like an EKG for the stock market – it gives you detailed insight underneath the surface to see what's really happening with the stock indexes. 

You'll get detailed info on the following market stats each day:

  • The number and amount of institutional selling days (very important to track!)
  • What market style (Growth or Value) is in favor
  • If the market indexes are bullishly aligned or not (above their 200 or 50 moving averages) 
  • Indexes making new highs
  • 52-week Highs vs. Lows
  • Percentage of Stocks Above the 200 MA
  • Number of leading growth stock breakouts

Instructions on how to interpret and use each indicator are of course included!

Section 3:
Market Sentiment

Market sentiment is a secondary but important factor.  It provides additional color that is invaluable when the markets are at turning points. 

For example, when the markets get too bullish, a correction is usually around the corner.  And when the markets are frozen in fear, the next market rally or bull market is usually coming soon.

We track:

  • CNN Fear/Greed 
  • Put/Call ratio 
  • Investors Intelligence Bulls vs. Bears

Data Available From July 10, 2013

As all data is available in a simple spreadsheet format, so you can go back to any date (since July 10, 2013) and see that’s day’s info. This lets you see trends over time.

A Note From The Creator:

Michael Benghiat

“Created for stock investors by a stock investor!”

"I learned about IBD's Market School in 2016 and found it a key tool to become a better trader.  I used it to track the markets each day and after a few months I started adding other data to create an even more comprehensive market view each day.  

In 2017 I started this Market Trend Advisory that was originally only for my own use.  I found it invaluable when I did a "post analysis" of all my trades from 2014 to 2019 as I had accurate past market index data.   I wanted to see objectively what I was doing right and wrong with my trading and how I could improve my results.

I discovered 3 things that I was doing that I needed to fix right away:

The biggest problem was that I was getting scared out of the market during corrections and not getting back in when an uptrend resumed, or I would only buy small positions when I got back in.

I also found that I was getting out of some nice winners too late - I was ignoring the overall market when it moved into a correction, and so I was losing a big chunk of my profits.

I was also selling too soon, based mostly on fear and what I thought was going to happen. I would sell and watch the stocks blast off over the coming months.

The big takeaway was that I was taking action in the stock market based on how I felt, and this led to me leaving a lot of money on the table.  It was time to change how I invested.

By using the Market School rules and creating the Market Trend Advisory, I was now able to just follow the signals and keep my guesses, feelings, and emotions out of trading.

It works incredibly well to keep me on top of the market each day and provides highly accurate action-based signals based on facts and data. Having a system to follow based on facts and not emotions drastically improved my trading results.

I hope you get as much out of it as I do each day!"

Atlanta, GA

"I believe that majority of the stocks follow the general market direction and one can increase the odds of success in investing by trading with the trend. The Market Trend Advisory is the one stop place to obtain those trend signals on a daily basis. It provides indicators and a quick summary that allow you to enter with confidence during uptrends and take caution during market uncertainty or downtrends.  It even publishes signals to be able to hit the gas pedal and increase market exposure during power trends.

I highly recommend this service, it should help maximize profits for all investing styles whether its investing using Index ETFs or individual stocks.

Frisco, TX

"A long time ago, I spent a lot of money on Investools and they had a great tool called Big Charts (breaking down the trends of sectors). Eventually Investools was sold to TD Ameritrade and they stopped supporting Big Charts. There was a hole in the market for something like this.  Well, the Market Trend Advisory is a great replacement and tool to help confirm my own technical research."

Andrew K.
Woodland Hills, CA

"The Market Trend Advisory provides a fast view of stock market conditions.  In August, the daily update consistently showed the market as increasingly overbought. That foresight allowed me to exit my positions the moment the market broke in early September.

One of my favorite parts of the spreadsheet are the contrarian indicators. The history goes back far enough to cover several market corrections. Finally, I have subscribed to other services such as IBD and VectorVest in the past. I find the Market Trend Advisory to have easy access to detail and clear messaging on the current market trend. I highly recommend this service. Keep up the good work!"
