Groups and sectors are analyzed across three time frames, short, intermediate and long, because that is how we feel most investors/traders organize their work.
Short Term: This is the time frame in which you conduct your actual market operations, place buy and sell orders, execute trades and manage stops. In GroupPower, the short term represents the finest movements in the group structure, those that are just discernable above the noise.
Intermediate Term: This is the time frame in which you make your tactical investment decisions. In GroupPower, the intermediate term represents the major tradeable swings of the groups and sectors.
Long Term: This is the environment in which we are operating, long-term bull, consolidation and so on. In GroupPower, the long term depicts the most important macro trends in the structure.
The actual time frame for the terms are:
Short Term = 1 Month
Intermediate Term = 1 Quarter
Long Term = 2 Quarters (semi-annual)
