A stock market timer attempts to profit by predicting the ups and downs of the market. A stock market timer attempts to buy at or near a market low and sell at or near a market high. By repeatedly buying at or near lows and selling at or near highs the stock market timer hopes to increase profits. (A stock market timer may also sell short at or near predicted highs and buy back stock at or near predicted lows). A stock market timer tends to use an array of indicators in an attempt to time the market. A stock market timer may use moving averages, stochastics, breadth, cycles, etc. in order to predict the market's trend. A stock market timer may attempt to predict exact highs and lows or merely directional trends in the market.
