What Is The Chaikin Power Gauge?
The Chaikin Power Gauge is a remarkably accurate indicator of where a stock is headed over the next 3-6 months. It uses a proven algorithm that uniquely combines fundamental data with technical indicators. The rating ranges from “Very Bearish” to “Very Bullish,” with the rating based on 4 key components:
- Financials – How is this company’s balance sheet looking?
- Earnings – What movement is there that will impact the income statements?
- Technical – How are chart patterns and market activity impacting the stock price?
- Expert Opinions – When we look at a broad spectrum of “stock gurus”, what is the general consensus?
Using The Power Gauge When Trading
Note: The Chaikin Power Gauge will appear on the Equities trading page right after you get a quote for almost all US stocks.
The Chaikin Power Gauge stock rating gives you a directional edge. Stocks rated “very bullish” are likely to outperform the market, while stocks rated “very bearish” are likely to underperform.
Positive and Negative Potential
The Chaikin Power Gauge has another feature – if it looks like things could potentially be changing in the near future, you might see a “Positive Potential” or “Negative Potential” text appear below the Bullish/Bearish rating.
This can be just as useful as the rating itself – it means that there is some movement in the background that can cause price movement in the short- to mid-term. An otherwise Bearish stock with positive potential has an opportunity for upswings – something very interesting if you trade options, or just an opportunity to “scoop” the market if you’re eyeing this stock.
