There is very little information out there on Intermarket analysis and this was my main motivation for writing this book. In fact the Market Technician Association (MTA), realizing the importance of Intermarket analysis, have recently added 9 Chapters from my book in the 2016 level 2 and level 3 CMT curriculum and associated textbooks required for the CMT exams
Unlike other books which describe what happened in the past, Intermarket Trading Strategies can help you predict what is going to happen in the future.
But how do markets interact and influence each other and how can we use intermarket relationships to construct a viable technical system?
The book is divided in two parts. The first part includes the most important historic correlations between equity Indices, commodities and forex. It also explains the basic principles involved in Intermarket analysis. In the second part you can find custom trading systems to trade the S&P, DAX ,and FTSE futures, Gold and other commodities and Forex.

WHICH TREND INDICATOR WINS?

DETECTING FLAGS IN INTRADAY CHARTS

Do flags work in intraday charts? What is the optimal price target? In this article I will present a system (and the Tradestation code) to identify and trade intraday flags. Published in the December 2014 issue of Technical Analysis of stocks and Commodities.

TRADING THE LOONIE

Crude oil is the largest single contributor to the total amount of foreign exchange earned by Canada, and the importance of crude oil to the foreign exchange earnings of Canada has been increasing over time. A correlation analysis presented in the first part of this article revealed an amazing 81% correlation between the Canadian dollar and WTI crude oil.
This high correlation is exploited in the second part of the article to derive a trading system to trade Canadian dollar futures. On backtesting the system produced an annualized 129% return, producing 123 trades which were roughly 70% accurate and a profit factor of 4.7. This article was published in the December 2015 issue of Technical Analysis of stocks and Commodities.

While the trends are obvious in retrospect, it's another matter altogether to identify the trend in real time. In this article, published in the October 2016 issue of Technical Analysis of stocks and Commodities I test four popular trend indicators to determine their efficiency in detecting trends on time.

TRADING THE NIKKEI

Historically, the performance of the JPY has provided a reliable proxy for global equity markets and risk assets as a whole.
Beyond the general risk relationship, the correlation between USD/JPY and Japan’s Nikkei 225 index is further strengthened by the index’s heavy weighting in export-oriented companies. In this article I exploit the strong correlation between the Nikkei and the JPY to design a short term system to trade the Nikkei. This article was published in the July 2017 issue of Technical Analysis of stocks and Commodities.
