"I am a swing trader focusing on timeframes that extend from a few weeks to a few months. I look for corrections within the bigger trend to identify mean-reversion setups."
Arthur takes a quantitative approach to trading using simple strategies and repeatable processes. Many of these strategies have been backtested and he often shares the results, as well as the strategy. Arthur uses a three-step process to find trading candidates. First, a weight-of-the-evidence approach is used to establish the broad market environment (bull market or bear market). Second, trend and momentum filters are utilized to identify strong sectors, industry groups, and stocks. Third, pattern analysis and momentum oscillators are used to identify tradable pullbacks. Further elements of his trading strategy include a short-term catalyst for entry, an exit strategy, and a profit target. Arthur's favorite indicator is RSI.
