A synopsis page with the important points. Time sometimes really IS of the essence.
A second, more detailed page showing the chart with indicators, important trendlines and a more in-depth analysis. The proprietary Tension Indicator is also included, showing the underlying trend, and current trading strategy with a trailing stop.
Reports are updated weekly – trendlines are refreshed and, when necessary, stops are adjusted.
Additionally, if markets have moved sharply, an inter-week update is posted, highlighting new levels and pointing out any significant changes.
Whether you are looking for pure research, trade ideas, or a mixture of both, our weekly reports provide what you need to either complement your own ideas, or offer a new perspective.
HOW WE DO IT
We use tried and tested indicators to help identify trends and turning points.
Classical analysis techniques highlight ‘decision levels,’ and the proprietary Tension Indicator provides entry/exit levels, alongside a trailing stop.
Used together, they provide direction, levels of interest and a trading strategy.
WHO WE ARE
XATS is an independent research company providing Trend Following analysis and trading ideas.
We adopt a ‘long/short’ approach to the markets. Whilst some institutions are ‘long only’, meaning they only make ‘buy’ recommendations – even in falling markets – XATS makes both ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ recommendations. This means we can catch trending markets, regardless of their direction.
With each recommendation, we provide a stop loss. This is a level where we advise to close the position in the event the market moves against us. However, when the market is moving in favour of the trade, we change the stop accordingly. This dynamic approach helps to lock-in profits, and also reduces risk as the trend matures.
