Alan Farley – Pattern Cycles – Mastering Short-Term Trading With Technical Analysis

Price marks territory as it spikes relative highs and lows within all time frames. Skilledtraders observe this signature behavior throughout all markets and all historical charting. Relative direction also characterizes price movement. A series of lower lows and lower highs identify downtrends while uptrends print a sequence of higher highs and higher nlows. As bulls and bears fight for control, Pattern Cycles are born.

Ahn And Cheung-The Intraday Patterns Of The Spread And Depth In A Market Without Market Makers

The microstructure of the Saudi Stock Market (SSM) under the new computerized trading system, ESIS, is described, and order and other generated data sets are used toexamine the patterns in the order book, the dynamics of order ¯ow, and the probability of executing limit orders. Although the SSM has a distinct structure, its intraday patternsare surprisingly similar to those found in other markets with di€erent structures. We ®nd that liquidity, as commonly measured by width and depth, is relatively low onthe SSM. However, liquidity is exceptionally high when measured by immediacy. Limit orders that are priced reasonably, on average, have a short duration before being executed,and have a high probability of subsequent execution. 2000 Elsevier ScienceB.V. All rights reserved

Ahn And Cheung-The Intraday Patterns Of The Spread And Depth In A Market Without Market Makers (2)

We examine the temporal behavior of the spread and depth for common stocks listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong SEHK., which operates as a purely order-driven mechanism. We find U-shaped intraday and intraweek patterns in the spread and reverseU-shaped patterns in the depth. Our finding is consistent with that of the study of Lee et al 1993. wLee, C.M.C., Mucklow, B., and Ready, M.J., 1993, Spreads, depths, and the impact of earnings information: an intraday analysis, Review of Financial Studies 6, 345–374x of New York Stock Exchange NYSE. stocks that wide spreads are associated with small depths and narrow spreads are associated with large depths. The negative association  between spread and depth on the SEHK implies that limit order traders actively manage both price and quantity dimensions of liquidity by adjusting the spread and depth. Further, larger spreads and narrower depths around the market open and close indicate a trading strategy by limit order traders to avoid possible losses from tradin ith informed traders when the adverse selection problem is severe. The paper provides further evidence that U-shaped spread and reverse U-shaped depth patterns should not be solely attributed to specialist market making activities. q1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
