My intent is to simplify the decision making process. I am an Occam's Razor fan
. This theory suggests to “shave away” all unnecessary information
when making decisions.
WHEN MARKETS ARE ON SUPPORT SIMILAR TO THE EXAMPLE BELOW, I LOOK TO BUY.
WHEN MARKETS ARE AT EXTREME POINTS OF RESISTANCE LIKE THE EXAMPLE BELOW, I LOOK TO HARVEST AND PROTECT THE GAINS.
AND WHEN THE PATTERN PRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY, I WILL SHORT.
WHAT WE DO
Having been in financial services for over 30 years, I've spoken with many individuals and financial professionals. The common desire that we all have, including me, is to enlarge our portfolios with the least amount of risk!
If you were caught by surprise in 2008 and suffered because losses went well beyond tolerable, you are not alone. Many still continue to find it difficult to make confident investment decisions. Why? I believe the noise from media sources, and in our own heads, plays a significant factor in making good investment decisions.
My research is intended to simplify investment decisions and increase confidence with charts that are clear as to the pattern at hand and action to take.
If you are new to Kimble Charting Solutions, you will often see the term "Power of the Pattern". This describes the type of research I do on a daily basis. I don't attempt to predict what will happen or respond to news or opinions of the world. Rather, I look for chart patterns at extreme exhaustion points that have a high probability of reversing. These extremes reflect excess fear and greed of global investors and what I seek to help people capitalize upon.
By providing research showing markets at extremes of long term resistance or support, and including bullish / bearish sentiment readings when available, I attempt to help people simplify their decision-making, reduce risk, increase confidence and improve results.
WHO WE HELP
I'm looking for people who are a good fit in that they use this research to drawn their own conclusions and make their own investment decisions. This is not an investment advisory or trading service. That said, I do share positions I am personally taking given the pattern and opportunity at hand.
My research is suitable for people managing their own individual portfolio or professionals responsible for managing client or institutional assets. Members will best capitalize on my research by combining it with the trading tools / methods they currently employ toward making even better decisions.
I encourage you to watch a 30 minute introduction video also available on our site.
Finally, patience is key to allow opportunities to materialize. Those that are will benefit most from my research.
SERVICES WE PROVIDE
I believe research that is free but doesn't provide value is expensive, while quality research can pay for itself many times over.
With this in mind I created various types of services from Premium Membership which provides members with daily research to services that target specific markets such as our weekly Global Dashboard, Sector/Commodity Sentiment Extremes and Metals Research reports. A description for each service is available on our website and sample reports are available upon request.
I began my career in as a financial advisor back in 1980. For the majority of these years I was fortunate to have the wind of a bull market behind me. It made me look rather smart to my clients during those years. I was also fortunate to have met Sir John Templeton, founder of Templeton Mutual Funds in the late 1990s.
Sir John quickly became my hero as well as a mentor. He informed me the greatest bull market of all time was likely ending at the end of the decade! How did he know? John Templeton was born in the early 1900s and had personally experienced several long term bull and bear markets. Through great observations of market history and its tendency to repeat certain patterns, he was able to capitalize in the worst and best of times. It made me look at investing very differently going forward. First, that a major bull market pattern could be in for a long nap, a sideways market perhaps for a decade or two! (think of the nap you take after a thanksgiving feast)
Market history & the reality of repeating patterns
I could not simply hold and hope at this point. Sir John said – “if you do what everybody else does, you’ll get what everybody else gets”. We have to expect some pain with investing but I didn’t want my clients to suffer. In addition, should Sir John’s observations come true again and we found ourselves in a sideways market that included some very significant declines, I needed a system or approach that could help manage the downside risk if not capitalize on it. My goal was to boil decisions down to a simple yes or no, in or out and eliminate the what-ifs and noise. I realize investing is not always that precise and simple.
Taking things back to the mid 1990s for a moment, I was familiarizing myself with a software program called MetaStock. Having studied technical analysis during this time, I began applying various moving averages to help find entry and exits points in the mutual funds I had assets in at the time. Over time I realized moving averages were useful only when definitive trends are in place but can eat you alive when things trend sideways for a period of time. This ultimately led me to the approach I’ve adopted since. I call it TBNM or Tops, Bottoms and No Middles. I look for patterns at extreme points of "exhaustion" with a high probability of reversing. Perhaps you are familiar with some of the terminology such as rising and falling wedges, “cup and handle” patterns etc. Finding these patterns is my skill and passion. What matters most is knowing that these patterns increase our odds of success. I’ve also found these patterns provide another very important benefit – simplicity and clarity to help eliminate all the noise from an unlimited number of opinions and news the world provides.
Beyond the pattern, we still need to choose position size, a stop loss method and targets. What I can share about those who have employed my research is that it’s helped people make decisions with greater ease and confidence. What I can also promise you won’t see from me is any focus on the problems of the world. My sole focus is on finding solutions, patterns that provide opportunities to increase account values regardless of market direction; what I often refer to as the “Power of the Pattern”.
By now you should also be able to conclude that I’m neither a bull nor a bear. I am of the belief that being "bullish or bearish" is nothing more than a psychological state of mind....... It’s not a strategy. I attempt to find repeating patterns that have a two-thirds chance of predictable results. No matter how hard I work I know I will be wrong a third of the time and I am OK with that....yet I am NOT ok with “Being wrong for long”!
