The CrystalBull Matador™ Chart vs. QQQThe above chart shows intraday values of the QQQ ETF, while the gauge shows the corresponding intraday readings of our CrystalBull Matador™. The CrystalBull Matador™ uses a proprietary model to try to determine strength and weakness in the market, and to identify possible entry and exit points. It reacts more quickly to changing market conditions than our Trading Indicator, and will trade more frequently. This is a more active, nimble trading model.

HOW TO USE: The yellow line in the center chart represents the CrystalBull Matador™. It is displayed in a standard technical analysis format, where a reading above +50 (red line) represents a possible negative trend reversal (market appears overbought, and may trend downward going forward), and a reading below -50 (green line) represents a possible favorable trend reversal (market appears oversold, and may trend higher going forward). The official readings are calculated after all the closing data are in for each day. Trades are either executed in the after-hours market, or at the market open the following day. The model assumes that the market open prices match the previous days' closing prices. The Indicator chart draws a line from data point to data point. Where that line crosses the green or red line is not relevant; Monitor only the data points along the line.
