Chat Room Terminology

Q: What does it mean when I hear in the chat room the term Tick and what numbers should I pay attention to?

A: When you see the Tick at over -800 or over +800, you should start paying attention.   Depending on the market conditions, 1000 to 1300 either positive or negative would indicate a big move is ahead in the opposite direction.   This is what is sometimes referred to as a Snap-Back.   Pay special attention to this information.   It could make you a lot of money or take away a lot of you profit .   $TICK is the symbol you can enter in your TradeStation, while other quote services use similar symbols.
Q: What I hear someone say I'm going long or short a stock or index what does that mean?

A: The word Long simply means buy. The word short means sell.
Q: What does it mean when someone says they are flat?

A: This simply means they have no active position in the market.
Q: Why the use so many two and three letter abbreviations that have no meaning to me.

A: These are used as a short cut to reduce the amount of typing.   Please refer to the Hamzei Analytics homepage and select About, third button to the right.   Then go to Tutorial's, please study and print out the following Trading Terminology and Glossary. Please refer to these commonly used terms while in the chat room. It is your responsibility to print these out and learn them. Some of us, have to respond via typing so much that we risk hand and arm injury. Please understand abbreviations allow us to be brief and to the point in this busy trading environment. We do not do it to be rude or insensitive to anyone. It is simply a necessity for the chat room.
Q: When I hear the train whistle what does that mean?

A: This means there is a buy or sell program on the NYSE.   We do not indicate what is being bought or sold.   However this gives us some idea of the possible direction of the market, especially when they happen one right after another and are substantial.
Q: I hear the term snap back, what does this mean?

A: This simply means a stock or index has become way over extended in one direction.   When a stock or index is at this extreme level, it usually snaps back to its equilibrium.
Q: When you say spreads are positive or negative what are you referring to?

A: Spreads of the difference between the theoretical value for futures vs. actual value both for NASDAQ and S&P 500.   We commonly refer to these as NQ and ES.   This value is computed in real-time.
Q: What is the purpose of the timer chart and where do I find it?

A: Timer chart is the first link under the SuperPlatinum menu.   It is affectionately called Timer Rules as in King or Ruler.  It provides a macro picture of the market using non-price based indicators like McClellan Oscillator.   This chart has been talked about in many forums in message boards since we put it up.   The blue horizontal lines were suggested by Sherman McClellan, those levels have worked for him since he invented the oscillator.   They are 150, 100, -100 and -150.   Under -150 and over + 150 is what Sherman looks for.   The inputs are advancers minus declining issues for the first McClellan Oscillator and up and down volume for the second McClellan Oscillator.   We purposely use cap-weighted indices on top.   Our bias is a NDX and SPX.   By using cap-weighted vs. whole market you discern institutional vs. retail all in one chart.   See Trendlines that were drawn 6-8 weeks ago during June of 2002. TradeStation has the ability to automatically extend those lines and we see the value on Tuesday when the NDX went up and stopped at the descending trendline and reversed.  See timer chart for July- August 2002 timeframe.
