Update on RTN 6-26-17:

We’ve enjoyed a few days of steady climbing from RTN. Earlier this week, the pendulum started to swing the opposite way. Now, VantagePoint has indicated a crossover to the downside, indicating the trend is now down. However, the Neural index remained in the “one” position signaling strength over the next 48 hours. This gives us some uncertainty as to the direction of this market. Erring on the side of caution, we’ve moved our stops to the break even level. This protects us should the market move lower, but allow us to remain active of the market recovers.

VantagePoint has indicated a new crossover to the downside. This indicates the uptrend is likely over. But, since the neural index doesn’t confirm the position, we pull our stops up to break even instead of exiting right away.

How VantagePoint works

The VantagePoint Trading Software is a forecasting tool that uses a combination of end of day data and artificial intelligence to provide traders a forecast of market movement 1-3 days in advance with the goal of helping them improve their timing on making trades and maximizing their profit potential.

The artificial intelligence software forecasts market movement for stocks, futures, Forex and ETF markets.

The basic concepts operate using two indicators. The traditional simple moving average (SMA) is displayed as a black line on the charts. VantagePoint’s patented predictive moving average (PMA) is displayed as a blue line. This proprietary indicator uses artificial intelligence to analyze both the past price data of a given market and the 25-30 most influential markets and how they affect the price action of the market.

When the blue PMA line crosses the black SMA line to the upside, traders can interpret this as VantagePoint signaling a new uptrend, or bullish trend. Traders can expect the uptrend to continue if the blue line remains above the black line. The trend is over when a new crossover occurs and the blue line crosses the black line to the downside.

Conversely, if the blue PMA crosses the black SMA to the downside, VantagePoint is suggesting the start of a new bearish, or downtrend. Traders looking to short the market may find this instance as the best time to enter the market if they are looking to follow a downtrend.

A second key aspect of the VantagePoint Software is the neural index. Another patented indicator, this measures the anticipated market movement over the next 48 hours. If the software predicts the price to be higher over the next 48 hours, the green indicator line moves to the “one” position. If the prediction is for lower prices, the indicator slides down to the “zero” position.

Using the neural index in conjunction with the crossovers on the chart allows traders to easily see when a new trend is starting and what to expect from a market in the coming days. This has the potential to greatly increase a trader’s profit potential by more clearly identifying trends and entry and exit points.
