Did you get out of the market in time in 2008?  If you did not, you probably lost 30-40% on your investments, in your retirement and pension funds.  We can talk all day about the greed of investment bankers (and mortgage lenders) on both Wall Street and Main Street which tore the heart out of America (and demolished the Global Economy probably for the next generation).  The simple fact is: you need to take care of your own investment decisions because professionals will always put a rose-colored picture on the markets.  They make money from keeping their clients investing (which generally means being in long positions in stocks).  They have a vested interest in keeping you in the market.  Our long-term trading system gave a sell signal on the S&P 500 Index on 12/3/07 and gave a short-sell sign on the same index on 2/11/08.  If you had been subscribing to our service, you would not have suffered such a catastrophic 2008 on your investments. 

 

 

What does CGTS© offer the subscriber?  We offer two levels of participation: 1) a form of ‘Portfolio Insurance’, through which we provide a ‘shadow system’ for your investment decisions. 2) An active trading service whereby we give you buy-sell and shortsell-cover signals for the issues we are following in our own database.  You can read more about these two services below.

 

Clark's Gate Timing System©

Clark's Gate Timing System (CGTS©) is a market timing system designed to trade stocks, indexes, and mutual funds on a relatively short-term basis (3 to 30 weeks). The system is based on technical indicators we have created over a fifteen-year period. These indicators are designed to trigger buy and sell signals based on fixed overbought and oversold levels. The system is also designed to be used in all markets, both long and short. We believe that there is no market from which we cannot profit. Each buy signal has as its inverse a short-sell signal; each sell signal has as its inverse a cover signal. Our intention is to be in the market at all times (or nearly at all times), and to use the natural rhythms of the markets to our own advantage -- and to the advantage of our subscribers. Our view is that one must be courageous enough to short the markets when they are bearish; and that one also must be courageous enough to sell into a rally; otherwise profits will slip away under the guise of self-delusive fantasies of outrageous gains. The key to beating the markets is being willing to sell stocks even against your own (better) judgment.

 

Rule #1: Never go against the trend.  The majority is often wrong; but the minority is often wrong also.

Rule #2: You don’t need a broker who makes his living off of your money.  Most brokerage firms buy a position in a stock quietly and slowly.  When the stock has appreciated significantly they add the stock to their buy recommendations.  Then they begin selling their position while they are encouraging their clients to buy the stock.  Most firms never issue sell recommendations.  If they do, beware: they are probably trying to buy your stock after a huge sell-off.

Rule #3: When fear turns to greed and visions of unlimited wealth, we are probably near a top in a trade and we should get ready to sell.

Rule #4: When hope and denial turns to fear and visions of an unlimited loss, we are probably approaching a bottom in a trade.  (See Rule #1 however.)

Rule #5: Trade with a system however, to complement your gut reactions.  Follow the system no matter what, even if it means taking a loss.  Don’t get lazy with your money and sink into denial.  Use a system.

 

 

PART ONE:  TECHNICAL INDICATORS

We have developed a whole stable of proprietary technical indicators that we use to initiate and monitor positions in the markets.  For the purposes of this web page we are going to try to keep things simple.

 

All of our indicators fall under two main headings: (1) trend indicators; and (2) momentum indicators.  Trend indicators  are generalized indicators used to show us the general direction of an issue or the markets  over different periods of time: (1) short-term; (2) intermediate-term; and (3) long-term.  The trend-indicators, generally speaking, are not good trading indicators as they tend to be self-correcting and, ultimately, perfect at calling tops and bottoms – that is, they are always re-adjusting themselves to give an accurate reading of the markets.  (It is possible to manipulate these trend indicators – as averages, for instance – to make them more useful as trading indicators, as we will explain further.)

 

Momentum indicators are, generally speaking, our actual trading indicators.  The momentum indicators signal overbought and oversold magnitudes; while the trend indicators give market background or ‘environmental’ readings.

 

In a very general sense, we buy an issue when the momentum indicator is oversold but the long-term trends are positive; we short-sell an issue when the momentum indicator is overbought and the long-term trends are negative.

 

A. TREND INDICATORS 

Note that the direction of the trend (up or down) is important; note also that the pattern of the trend matters: bull markets are usually accompanied by higher lows and higher highs in the trend patterns; bear markets are defined by lowers lows and lower highs.  An issue that fails to make a new high in a bull market move may be experiencing exhaustion; a declining issue in a bear market move that establishes a higher low in its pattern may be running out of sellers.

 

(1)       Short-Term Trend:

 

 

 

 (2)       Intermediate-Term Trend:

 

 -

(3)       Long-Term Trend:

 

-

As I have indicated, these trends, generally speaking, are background indicators.  They ‘proclaim’ the current direction of the market and ‘suggest’ a future direction.  These trend indicators are not infallible, obviously; they can turn on a dime, and give a ‘late’ reading when they do turn – that is, they can give you a positive reading today, and correct that reading the next day back to an actual top that occurred the week before. So they cannot be used, by themselves, as a trading trigger. Also, as I have written, the directions of the trends tell us one thing; but the pattern of the trends also tell us alot, especially the pattern of the shorter-term trends. Combined reading of shorter- and longer-term trends can tell us alot about the turning point of trends, and the health, generally, of a market move in eiteher direction.

Anyone who has invested for long knows that no one who invests has a perfect record.  We consider a 70-80% success rate a target for our system.  We discard trading systems that do not fall into this range.  Even more than an 80% success rate, however, we look for a profit vs loss success rate closer to 90%.  That is, trading the Scudder Gold and Silver Stock mutual fund with one of our trading tools, we had 32 total trades, 22 winner and 10 losers, for a success rate of 68.75%.  However those 22 winning trades netted gains of more than 41 points, while losing trades cost us a negative 3.10 points total – giving us a profit over loss percentage of 92.97%. This type of return is our goal.

 

B. MOMENTUM INDICATORS:

 

As I wrote earlier, we have generated many, many momentum indicators.  We will introduced only a few to try to keep this slightly arcane subject focused.  Also we will look only at our ‘best’ indicators.  Remember, we don’t view these momentum indicators in a vacuum, but in the context of the trend indicators we have already discussed.

 

A.  M4 Momentum Indicator: This momentum indicator is a bit strange in that it works in the inverse of what one might expect.  M4 shows an ‘overbought’ reading when the indicator is low (less than 5); and M4 shows an ‘oversold’ reading when the indicator is high (more than 95).  This is a very short-term momentum indicator and a short-term trading indicator.  It is really not very good at calling bottoms or tops, because it tends to call both too early. But that doesn't mean it is not a good trading indicator however.

 

 

B.   M2F MOMENTUM: This indicator is an intermediate-term momentum indicator that registers an overbought condition above 70 and an oversold condition below 30.  It is not very exact as a trading instrument since it can become overbought (or oversold) early and remain so for an extended move.  It is useful, however, when used with other momentum indicators, as ‘double’ trading triggers.  It can also be used as a short-term trading indicator giving a buy reading when all the trends are positive and M2F is oversold and getting out as soon as M2F becomes oversold.  We will look at this more below.

 

 

C.  M2F/M4 COMBINATION.  If M4 and M2F are good momentum indicators working alone, then how do they work combined and averaged?  The chart below shows how this indicator does give fairly good readings of tops and bottoms – but see below to see how we use this indicator as a trading trigger.

 

 

D.  M4 TB (Top and Bottom) Indicator.  This indicator gives us pretty reliable readings for tops and bottoms of an issues life cycle.

 

 

E.  M4 Sum Plus.  This is a modification of the M4 Momentum indicator (above), which disregards all but extreme movements in the indicator.  This has proven to be our most successful trading indicator.  When the indicator moves above zero, this is positive; when it moves below zero, this is a negative.

 

 

 

You will note that we use these trend and momentum indicators together (sometimes mixing and matching them into strange combinations) to create our trading systems.

 

F.  M5 Momentum.  This indicator began as a very long-term momentum indicator that we shortened more and more until it also became a very good short-term trading indicator.  We show several M5’s with different durations in the chart below.  These shorter duration modifications have helped our M5 become our best short-term trading instruments.  Generally speaking with M5, +100 is overbought and -100 is oversold.

 

 

PART TWO:  TRADING SYSTEMS

 

Keeping it simple.

 

We have developed many trading systems over the years.  We have learned that keeping it simple is the best way to focus our energy and time.  We work with one short term trading system, one intermediate-term trading system; and one long-term trading system – three systems in all.  The first two trading systems work with variations of the M5 indicator, shown above (F); and the third works with the M4 Sum Plus indicator shown above (E).

 

 

1.  Short-Term Trading System #1 – M5 (10) Short-Term

 

This trading system is design for active short-term trading, with trading times generally between 2-7 trading periods (days or weeks).

 

This trading system gives a buy signal when today’s M5 (10) is less than zero but rising and when the two longer term trends are positive.  We sell when M5 (10) is greater than 100 and declining.  We short when M5 (10) is greater than zero and declining; and the two longer trends are negative; and we cover when M5 (10) is less than -100 and advancing.

2.  Intermediate-Term Trading: M5 (20).

 

This trading system is design for active intermediate-term trading, with trading times generally between 15-25 trading periods (days or weeks).

 

This trading system gives a buy signal when today’s M5 (20) is less than zero but rising and when the two longer term trends are positive.  We sell when M5 (20) is greater than 100 and declining.  We short when M5 (20) is greater than zero and declining; and the two longer trends are negative; and we cover when M5 (20) is less than -100 and advancing.
