Investors Intelligence: Our research methodology

Investors Intelligence is a source of independent analysis on the financial markets. Our primary focus is that of technical analysis, this being the study of price action. Utilising our in-house systems, charts and tools, our analysts review the markets on a regular basis, seeking to identify trading and investment opportunities at the level of index, sector, pair and individual instruments.

A variety of disciplines are utilised including, but not limited to:

  • Identification of trends through automated and/or visual review of price charts
  • Identification of relative performance through automated and/or visual review of relative ratio charts
  • Automated scanners, identifying various technical signals including P&F breakouts, Key Day Reversals, MA crossovers and Buy/Sell Climaxes
  • Volume and momentum indicators
  • Breadth analysis of indices, groups of stocks and other financial instruments
  • Our proprietary Advisors Sentiment survey

Please note that techniques may vary across the range of financial markets, depending on the suitability or viability of each technique to the relevant market.

Buy & Sell Recommendations

Investors Intelligence analysts will make both “Buy” and “Sell” recommendations in their reports. These are based on our technical analysis methodology and identify areas where we believe that there is a good probability of a successful trade or investment. Please note that “Sell” recommendations can refer to both disposals and short-side trades and each report should be examined to determine the nature of the recommendation.

The time period of recommendations is variable and can be dictated by the markets. Where possible, our analysts will provide technically derived stop levels and targets. Recommendations are provided as a guide and should not viewed as personal investment advice. If you have any doubts as to the suitability of II’s research for you, you should contact a suitably qualified investment advisor.
