My name is Frans. I' m in my mid-forties and I live in Belgium. Next to my daily work , I run StockMarketMoodToday.com.
The focus is on stock market mood and short term stock trading.
Benjamin Graham uses the allegory of ‘Mr Market’ to explain the market mood.
I always asked myself : Would it be possible to somehow 'measure' Mr Market's mood on a day to day basis ?
As an Agricultural Engineer I started to build a model. The result is the © Market Mood Model.
The outcome of the model - 'good mood' versus 'not so good mood' - is nothing more than a hint (= a small piece of information that even could be wrong).
But, although it is only a hint , I use the outcome of the © Market Mood Model in my decision making process.
The principle behind Mr. Market is simple, but applying this to a trading (investing) strategy is where the rubber meets the road as they say.
Go to My Trades - Blog to see some of my short term trades.
I think, the best thing to do, is to follow up on mood changes for at least 3 months.
This way you will get to know Mister Market a whole lot better !
I am really passionate about the stock market. But I always keep in mind that stock investing and stock trading is a serious business with tremendous opportunities but significant risks too.
