The general gist of sector rotation....

The general gist of sector rotation is being able to move your money from one industry to the next in an attempt to glean the most out of the market at any given time. As you go through the different industries, it is important to keep in mind that the past performance of any particular stock is not a guarantee of future success. With that thought in mind, there are four different stages of market movement you must understand.

Market Bottom: This is the point where the prices of a particular stock begin to decline, creating an all-time low.

Bull Market: This is when the market begins to rally and come back to life.

Market Top: This is the point when the market reaches its maximum potential and begins to flatten out.

Bear Market: This is when the market starts its long trip to the market bottom.

Choose the right instruments to trade.

One of the most important factors in successful trading is mastering the ability to choose the right instruments to trade. Many do not realize that there is also a certain psychology to making the right choice. It is just as important to identify not just those stocks that will move but also where to look for them. No matter how good you are at trading if you can't identify the right instruments to trade you won't get very far as a trader. You need to be able to identify those stocks that have enough movement to generate a profit for you and those that have the volume to match it. When choosing a good trading stock it is not enough to pick something you just like and can get excited about but you must also be able to put your personal feelings aside and focus solely on the numbers. While a good product is definitely a plus, much more is involved in choosing the right stock. You want to see more than movement, you must also be able to identify the direction its next move will be.

To do this, you should look for those stocks that have a strong risk/reward ratio. You can identify these stocks by the current news items circling around them, their numbers will show them usually moving up or down more than 2% even before the market opens, and they generally have a lot of unusual premarket activity to go along with it.

What do you do?

There is a good reason why trading is not for everyone. Statistics show that the majority of those who attempt a career in trading is not successful. This leaves us with a burning question…what is the cause of so many failures? Is it because they lack experience? Is it because of the intensity of the trade itself? Or is it because they don't have the right knowledge? The answer is probably yes to all of those and the answer could also be no. Every day, thousands of traders enter the market; some win and some lose. We all know exactly what happens when we win and make a pretty good windfall but how we react when we lose is another matter entirely. Ask yourself, what do you do when you lose or make a poor investment choice? Some people may get discouraged, blame their losses on the volatility of the market and declare it as a waste of time. Another may also get discouraged and want to quit but the next day they somehow find a renewed experience and are ready to try again. But the true trader will see the loss as a reason to ask more questions and do more research. Yes, they will be disappointed by their losses but rather than let that loss be a stumbling block, they will use it instead as a stepping-stone. They will view it as an opportunity to revisit their data, reevaluate their position and find out what went wrong. In essence, they will use it as a learning opportunity and see it as becoming a better trader in the future. Yes, the loss may have been a result of a lack of knowledge, limited experience, or even just bad decisions but in a trader’s mind, the reason for losing a trade is not as important as how they react to that loss.

Help you decide which way to go.

There are two different ways you can earn profit through sector rotation. First, you can buy when the sector is trending upward and sell when the trend is beginning to fall backward. This is a basic rule of thumb, buy low and sell high. This concept is pretty easy to understand but it is not always easy to detect. If you're like most people who enter the market, deciding when a price has hit its peak so you know when to get out is not always easy. The same can be said for determining the point at which the price has hit its lowest point possible. If you’re not completely sure how to go about it, there are several free websites you can refer to that will give you their viewpoint on whether the price is maxed out or not. Whatever you do, it is not a good idea to guess at what stock will perform well. Flash crashes are quite common and to be forewarned is to be forearmed. You can also use charts to predict market movements. Beginners usually will start with something simple like the Simple Moving Average (SMA) to help them to make their decisions. Listed below are a few ways you can use to help you decide which way to go.

The 4-hour chart

Using the 4-hour chart is another popular method often used by swing traders. There are quite a few good reasons why working with this chart is so appealing. First, it is a bit longer than the smaller 5-minute or 15- minute charts that do not give a full enough picture of what’s really happening with the money. But it is just long enough for investors to get a pretty good picture of what’s kind of movement is going on in the market. By using this type of chart, it is pretty easy to see just who is in control at any given time, the bears or the bulls. With the 4-hour chart strategy, the idea is to tap into the prevailing trends and make the most out of them by using a combination of several different moving averages, support or resistance, volatility, and other tools. When used together, these can help you to maximize your profits while at the same time keep your losses down to a minimum. With the 4-hour chart as your base, you can screen for potential areas where you might find trading signals. Your main goal here is to identify either an uptrend or a downtrend and then follow its unique behavior.

This is usually done by using two different sets of moving averages; one will be a 34 period and the other will be based on the 55 periods. These are both numbers that can be found in the Fibonacci sequence. You will be able to determine if a trend is good for trading or not by analyzing the relationship between the price action and the moving averages.

Keep your process simple.

Whatever strategy it is that you’re using start by trading a single stock and then sit back and observe what happens. Every stock has its own personality and habits. The more you understand them the easier it will be to anticipate its movements. Look at the charts at different times throughout the day to determine when it moves and how it responds to external stimuli. Think of it as developing a love interest. You want to know all its little quirks and habits. In time, your relationship will solidify and you’ll be able to predict its movements with surprising accuracy. You won’t get it right every time but the number of wrong predictions will eventually begin to diminish. Once you’ve reached a level of consistency, you can move on to get to know other stocks in your particular industry. One important thing you need to remember. Once you’ve started a trading plan, do not change it while you have a stock in play. Once you’ve pulled out and the market is closed, you can then look back and make some adjustments to your plan. This way you will know the exact results of your decision and you’ll get a clearer picture of whether or not your trading strategy is really working or not.

Popular trading mechanisms

Many people view swing trading as more of a fundamental approach to investing in the stock market. Unlike with day trading where positions are never held for more than a single day, swing traders can conceivably hold their positions for up to several days or even a week or more; some may even hold them for a month. Still, this is not a clear picture of what swing trading actually is. It is a form of trading that sits right in the center of two other popular trading mechanisms, day trading, and trend trading. The day trader needs to make superfast decisions and may only hold his assets for a few seconds before selling. Trend traders, on the other hand, are usually in the market for the long haul. They could conceivably hold their trades for months at a time. Swing trading is a blend of these two very different trading styles.

Swing trading is sector rotation.

One of the most effective strategies in swing trading is sector rotation. It has been proven to be an excellent means of generating profits with the least amount of risk. There are a few things you must keep in mind when you’re practicing sector rotation:

When the market is going down avoid buying any stock Market timing is much needed thing. This includes purchasing any type of ETFs or sector funds.

You will divide the market up into specific sectors. Some of these sectors will perform better at different times than at other times.

Evaluation of each sector using both technical and fundamental analysis.

Rotate the sectors every month to capitalize on your profit potential.

To hone your physical body

Just as you would work to hone your physical body, the best traders also put a lot of energy in developing their skills and sense of discipline. The more you practice in this area, the easier it will be. The ability to identify a good stock, learning how to time the market, and predicting price movements are just the public demonstration of the psychology behind the art of trading. You also must be willing to be a lifelong learner. When it comes to navigating the many instruments you can trade in, you will always find that there is something else you need to learn. This means you must have humility and be willing to openly admit when you don’t know something. The moment you become over-confident and think you’ve mastered a certain skill you can pretty much bet that something will come along to knock you back down a peg or two. You’ll either lose your shirt or you’ll be beating yourself up for a missed opportunity. There is a very specific art to swing trading and learning everything you can about the market is tricky. Being able to do a proper analysis and make right decisions is only a reflection of what’s going on in your own personal mindset. To be a good trader, one that is successful most of the time, depends on how well your mind works and how well you know and understand people. Every trade you make will be a reflection of that mental acuity that you have developed.

If you for any reason feel that you are weak in this regard, don’t despair. It just means that now is the time to start sharpening your tools so you’re ready to get the best that you can possibly get out of your trades.

Keep in mind

There are also four stages of the economic cycle that are important to always keep in mind. Remember that these cycles usually trail behind the market cycles by at least a few months.

Full Recession When there is a full recession, it can be a difficult time for many businesses. The country's GDP will have been retracting for several quarters, interest rates will have dropped, and consumer expectations will have seriously declined. There are few industries that fare well during this period of time, however, those that are cyclical tend to do better. The technological industry and industrial markets also seem to do well in this type of economic climate.

Early Recovery In this phase, things are beginning to improve economically. Consumers will begin to expect more from the market and industrial production is starting to see a gradual increase. By this time, interest rates have already bottomed out and aren't expected to fall any further, and the yield curve (the line that plots the interest rates used as a benchmark for measuring the economic climate) is starting to rise. Industries that tend to do better in this type of economic cycle are usually the industrial sector, those that supply basic materials, and towards the end of this cycle, you might even see potential in the energy sector.

Late Recovery During this economic phase, you will see a rapid increase in interest rates and the yield curve will begin to flatten out. Consumer expectations will begin to drop and the industrial industry will level off. Industries that fare better during this phase include energy, staples, and services.

Early Recession During the early recession, things will begin to decline for everyone. This is a period when consumer expectations will fall to an all-time low, the production industry will start to fall, and interest rates will be at their highest. The yield curve will neither be rising or falling but instead will remain flat or maybe inverted. The industries most likely to perform well in this economic climate will be services, utilities, cyclical, and transports.

Support your mental acuity

A good trader must learn how to keep their personal feelings completely out of the trading process. When you are emotional, it can taint your perspective of trading and affect your judgment. Traders must have an almost mechanical approach to every decision they make. While all traders are in it for the money, the best ones are in it for the thrill of the game. They are not just following the charts to see whether they are going up or down but are equally interested in perfecting their skills of analysis with every decision they make. They view everything as a real learning process. When you trade you must make decisions quickly and be willing to stick to them and follow through with everyone. Each time you look at the charts, graphs, stocks, and other data, you may have only seconds to decide to get in or out of the market, there is absolutely no time for emotional involvement. This means you need to be mentally stable, but many would be surprised to learn that you also need to be in good physical condition as well. They do not understand that good physical conditioning can actually support your mental acuity. Eating well, getting good physical exercise, and maintaining healthy habits actually supports your mental faculties, which could easily impact your choices when it comes to making good trading decisions. People who have poor health may not realize how their physical condition could have an adverse effect on their decision-making process.

To visualize these movements.

As a swing trader, you need to be able to visualize these movements and compare them to the current market situation. This strategy works best when there is an up or down trend but will work even when there is a sideways trend.
