The True Value of a TurnerTrends subscription

Most of the investment world is fixated on the future.  Investors of all types (institutional as well as individuals) rely on economic forecasts, industry analysts, quarterly reports, newsletter writers, fund managers and a myriad of other experts and sources of information about a company, an industry or the entire market.  Just about everyone has come to believe that the ONLY way to make serious money in the stock market is to do enough “homework” to have an intelligent investment strategy.  Otherwise, they believe, you would just be guessing about when to buy and when to sell.

The problem is, even when you seek information to help you make a more informed and more intelligent decision about when to buy, what to buy and when to sell… in truth, all of those prognosticating sources of knowledge are just guessing, themselves.

No one… not you, not us, not any publicly available source of information and certainly not any economist or strategist or hedge fund manager knows for certain what the market is going to do in the future.  No one has a crystal ball that foretells the future.  Anyone who tells you what is likely going to happen in the future… is simply and absolutely just guessing.

We do not guess.

The beauty of the TurnerTrends analysis is that 100% of the indicators we use to detect well-defined market trends are ALL predicated on HISTORICAL data.  We do NOT forecast.  We do NOT tell you what is going to happen in the future.  Rather, we wait until a trend HAS already begun before we execute a trade notification.  The beauty of this approach is you do not need to know what will happen in the future; instead, you simply wait for the trend to develop and THEN get into the trade.

Here is what you get with a subscription to TurnerTrends

  1. When our proprietary algorithms detect a new market trend is likely developing, we will alert you with an email immediately.

  2. We will also let you know how we are putting our capital to work by including the percent we are investing based on the buy alert.

  3. We will let you know when a trend is, according to our trend analysis algorithms, is likely ending.

  4. You will also get a weekly report from us where we provide you with information about the current condition of the market and our trend analysis.  This will include our TMI chart that shows you, graphically, where the market is.

Armed with the above information, you can know when our algorithms have signaled when to get into a trade, how to get into a trade and when to get out of a trade.  And, NONE of these signals are predicated on what we ‘think’ or ‘hope’ or ‘expect’ will happen in the future.

Our signals are predicated on our TMI chart above which is made up of a composite of the four major US indexes: the S&P 500, the Nasdaq, the Russell 2000 and the DJIA.  We call this chart the “Collective Wisdom of the Entire Market.”  This is because it represents the total of all the trading of equities in those four indexes.  The trends associated with that trading activity along with the Histogram, have proven quite reliable in detecting when a new trend is beginning and when an existing trend is waning.

This chart and statistics are updated throughout the trading day and only available to TurnerTrends subscribers online.

The key to trend analysis is NOT trying to pick market tops and bottoms.  That is trade-timing and is really nothing more than guessing.  The TurnerTrends trend analysis waits until a trend HAS developed and then relies on the fact that the current trend in the market will continue exactly until it doesn’t.  Detecting when a trend is ending is another key component to determining when to exit a trade.

In all cases, past performance is never a good indicator of future returns.  The key is knowing the trend of the market and the fact that every market trend will continue until that trend ends.  Getting into a well-defined trend as early as possible and getting out of that trend when it is likely ending is how you make net positive returns in the stock market.
