This week we published another new course to Marwood Research called Amibroker CBT Intensive which teaches you how to use the Amibroker custom backtester (CBT). The Amibroker CBT can be difficult to grasp at first but it offers the ability to take complete control of the backtesting process, creating your very own backtesting environment. This […]
In February of last year I started a project called Zero To One Million. The goal was to show that anyone can go from zero to one million dollars by investing a regular amount into one or two quality stocks each month. It was also to prove that stock picking is possible and you don’t […]
This post is a round up of trades and thoughts taken for the week ending on 2nd November 2018. Monday. Have got a position in NTWK that went up nicely today and on solid volume. I have had this trade on for a few days now and will continue to hold it on this kind […]
The month of August was characterized by a lack of direction across many of the major stock market indices. Despite any notable trend, several of our premium trading strategies were able to profit and put in a solid month of results.
Global stock markets started the month of July on the back foot following a Federal Reserve rate increase in June and some mixed economic signals. However, by the end of the month equity markets were back to their all-time highs and the bull market in US equities continued. This came as US growth figures showed […]
Longer term readers and members will know that I try to keep Marwood Research updated with new trading strategies and information on a monthly basis. This month we have added a brand new trading strategy to the program called Trading For Yield.

Unfortunately for the headline writer, this […]

Tuesday morning I sent out a tweet to say that we may have seen a top in the stock market. Today, the S&P 500 has just closed down by 1.20%, it’s biggest fall in over 100 days.
Update 6/6/2018 Norgate Data latest version has now been officially released. This includes the NDU software and historical constituents databases. This is a great service that I use for all my backtesting in Amibroker. More details are available at the Norgate Data website. —-
Yesterday’s US election result came as a shock to many people and I’m sure you will have strong feelings about it too. Many observers took to social media to report their surprise and despair at the result.
In a few hours time we will see the United Kingdom head to the polls to decide whether or not to stay in the European Union. This long-awaited event has dominated the financial news for the last several weeks and drawn opinion from all over the world.
The Federal Reserve kept interest rates at near-zero on Wednesday once again. Rates have remained at record zero levels for the last seven years. This was the official line from the Federal Reserve press office:
As I predicted on Monday, the Federal Reserve kept interest rates on hold yesterday and this saw the US dollar drop against most of its major trading partners.
