First of all why saladenator?

When you open a global site about stock trading, you must be different. You need to use a nickname people will quickly learn and remember. Also, I saw the importance of search engines and rankings. Both my nickname and phrase ‘Follow smarts, make money’ are number one on google – just check it out! Woaah! They are No1!

Try to find a name and phrase this so unique you will see it’s almost impossible!

You’ll get the same ‘woaahhh’ – if you learn and understand volume-based trading!

Okay but why is this weird name?

I know that you expect something more serious.I fight a lot for my weight and by the time I started my public trading career I was on a Mediterranean diet: eating salads. I was the salad terminator… bingo! :saladenator. Anyway, if you prefer, call me on my real name: Bert.

Some words about me: I lived in 12 countries and in 14 cities across Europe. English is not my mother language. I speak 5 languages on different levels.

I have PhD abs. Summa cum Laude in Economics, I’m also a chartered accountant. My specialization is IT.

I invented my own method to find out the direction of institutional money. My primary focus is on institutional traders -smart money- and to detect their moves as they dictate the direction for the market.

Our analyzed instruments are US equity market (SPX) and global commodities (oil, gold, silver, palladium), dollar and US bonds.

About volumes

I started to deal with stock trading in 2007. After a few years, it was clear to me that all visible and price-related signals can be seen by other billions of traders. What can be seen by large public is almost useless. My target was to find an invisible layer of stock-trading, a less public layer and finally I found that volumes talk much more than prices.

The first step is to give up all of your desire to be more clever than smart, institutional traders. They spend billions of dollars to hire the best brains, use state of the art computing power and massive number of programmers in order to make the most of stock-trading. Also, they use astute methods in order to trick other institutional traders and retail traders. No, I don’t want to compete. I would like to sniff their footsteps and know their moves as early as possible.

The footstep they leave is pretty easy on volume-based indicators. Same indicators can be created as the price-based, regular ones. The brewery of volume based indicators starts with tickers: you need to recognize institutional money and skim their moves. This is possible with a US patented technology (more details please find at marketvolume.com).

You can measure the dynamics of volumes (general trend, like MACD on old-fashioned Technical Analysis), surges guarantee a manifested rally in price, accumulation (accumulation of bearish/bullish bets), hidden flow of volume (while price goes down, you can see that institutional money is streaming in to sector(s).

Yes, volume-based analysis  is a complex system and hard to learn. If you subscribe, I will do the majority of the work, will analyze my traded sectors and share my views. Also, if you want to step on the long path of  working on your own volume-based method, you will get access to my knowledge basis and use my knowledge as a foundation.

About my methodology:

I use several methods, and demonstrate my results on Marketvolume (R) charts showing special, state of the art, non-classic TA indicators. The secret of volume based analysis is the instrument, its volatility and related parameters show indicator changes BEFORE the price-manifestation. The list of MV indicators, their parameters and setups are indentical by timeframe and instrument. I have my own method to determine the most efficient setup. As a subscriber, you will get all the setups you need for SPX and USD 1D and 2D timeframe.

I have two other, non-public techniques: SSTIS and harmonics system.

SSTIS is a purely volume-based, unified system, represents the latest result of my researches that tells direction (buy, sell, sideways move) of a given instrument on 1D timeframe. Not a kind of panacea but close to that… As a subscriber you will get all of its trading signals. The exact setup remains my own secret.

Harmonics is a multi-time frame system (4h, 1D and 1 week) uses a combination of two non-patented and three non-public indicators. As a subscriber, you will get all of its trading signals. The exact setup remains my own secret.

I use classic TA as well in our analysis in order to determine how other traders see the market and help to find out their highest probability move. Also I show the way how algos work and determine supports/resistances, also techniques in order to collect money from others based on the mistakes of commonly used trading practices.

The three system I use dramatically rises the probability of taking winner positions with proper timing. I don’t know the future, but with my system, it’s possible to find the highest probability outcome.

It is important to stress that I have no financial interest to promote Marketvolume or Stockharts, nor any platform or charting method I show in my newsletters.

    Salad, I’ve learned a lot from your blog. After starting to analyze the indicators myself, I have understood how much time it takes to get to the level of understanding you are at. Thanks for the big effort you’ve put into sharing your knowledge!

    Count me in for your paid site as well.
