Online Trading Academy's Education Chief Says That at Current Stock Market Prices, It's Not a Good Time to Enter the Party

Sam Seiden, Chief Education Officer for Online Trading Academy, Discusses Market Timing During the Stock Market Rally

Irvine, CA, May 3, 2013 - Online Trading Academy’s Chief Education Officer, Sam Seiden, is taking the financial markets by the horns with his step-by-step market timing strategy. For the first time the Dow Jones Industrial Average has crossed the 15,000 mark but Seiden is not jumping on the band wagon of buying stocks. Instead, he is selling to make a profit, much like other professional traders and investors.

A recent article in The Wall Street Journal is calling these traders and investors, who are selling instead of buying, the “party poopers” of the rally. Seiden says otherwise, “Most of the time, the best time to leave a party is before it’s over. Now is not the time to enter the market because prices are nearing retail levels.”

According to Seiden, “A good rule of thumb is to enter the markets at wholesale prices, Dow 13,500 for example. This is a comfortable entry point for longer-term capital. When the Dow Jones Industrial Average is high this often means that companies are making big profits because they’ve cut costs, including labor by having machines do more of the work and/or perhaps made better deals with labor unions. A rallying Dow doesn’t necessarily mean that the economy is thriving, it typically means companies are.”

Seiden continued “Investors shouldn’t only look at the Dow Jones Industrial Average, but also the S&P (Standard and Poor’s) Index. When the (June) S&P Future is between 1580 and 1595, the markets are likely to stop rallying and turn lower as that area represents retail price levels. Professional traders and investors care more about the S&P Index than the Dow because it represents 500 stocks versus 30. Online Trading Academy teaches students to apply its core strategy of timing market turns and moves to the S&P in its live trading rooms, as part of its Extended Learning Track curriculum.”
