Wealthmakers Online Predictive Research (WOPR) is a distributed computing system that has hundreds of data feeds (economic, weather, geopolitical, interest rates, energy, equities, currencies, commodities, etc.) feeding into a relational database that searches for patterns and determines how a trading instrument has behaved both before and after specific events have taken place in the past. Only about 25% of stocks display patterns at any given time and only about 1% of stocks exhibit all the necessary conditions on any given day to make a trade. That means that out of 14,000 stocks, only about 140 trades are high probability trades that our system would generate a research report on and disseminate the information to clients. This process eliminates the noise and only tells you which stocks have multiple strategies lining up at the same time, in the same direction, with no conflicting predictions and the fundamental valuation is in-line with the prediction!
EARNINGS - Most stock price histories show random or unpredictable movements around earnings reports. But some repeat the same pattern quarter after quarter, year after year. Earnings predict probability, price move and length of move before and after all US stock earnings reports.
FRICTION FACTOR - Friction Factor is based on the relationship between the price of a stock and the volume at which it's bought and sold. Normal and abnormal Friction factor patterns can help you time your buying and selling decisions for maximum earnings potential.
GATS - The Global Automated Trading System (GATS) combines neural networks and genetic algorithms to reduce investment risks. GATS selects the highest probability trades in stocks, bonds, options, commodities, currencies and private equities, delivering precise, predictive and profitable data.
GROUP SECTOR - Certain institutions can exert buying or selling pressure over an entire industry group, pushing prices higher. Group Sector identifies stocks that most closely match their group's movement and generate powerful group consensus trading signals to help you profit from the herd mentality.
PATTERN SCANNER - describes the current technical situation in your stock. It displays the technicals, trend conditions and seasonal factors and automatically discovers how that stock has performed in the trading days following the occurrences of the event or combination of events. This technology automatically scans using complex historical queries based on what event is taking place right now in the stock. It then displays the probability, expected return and number of trading days for the expected move.
EVENTS - This technology automatically tracks "Trigger Events" that positively or negatively affect the value of a stock or its perceived value among analysts ranging from price fluctuations to natural disasters and political shifts. The results reveal patterns that can predict market movements.
RegSHO NAKED SHORTS - SEC Regulation SHO mandates that if a clearing agent holds a fail-to-deliver position for 13 consecutive settlement days, it must purchase securities to close out its position, a.k.a. a forced cover. WealthMakers aggregates data from NYSE, AMEX, NASDAQ, OTCBB and PINKSHEETS to track stocks that are about to have forced covers.
SEASONALITY - Seasonality analyzes more than 20 years of data to determine if stocks have a long or short seasonal bias, how many trading days the move is expected to last, the probability of that move and the percentage move the stock is expected to make based on the seasonal bias.
SQUEEZETRIGGER - Our proprietary database of more than 3,500,000,000 short sale transactions allows us to calculate the exact price at which the total short interest is short in each stock. Squeeze Trigger Alerts let you know exactly when a short squeeze will start and how to trade profitably.
VALUATION - A stock's value is a function of its forecasted earnings per share and forecasted earnings growth, as well as profitability, interest and inflation rates. Valuation use these metrics to determine at what price a stock is undervalued or overvalued, so that you can make investment decisions accordingly.
INSIDER - Significant stock sales or purchases by company "insiders" (officers or directors) can be a predictor of future price movements, up or down. The Insider strategy tracks these actions and correlates them with historical data to give you an investment edge.
