The Chaikin Power Gauge rates a stock's potential over the next 3-6 months and is based on a proprietary, 20-factor model that analyzes complex financial data and distills it into easily understood green/red displays. Green is bullish. Red is bearish. The model has been independently back-tested and proven successful at identifying stocks which will outperform or underperform the market over the next 3-6 months. The rating is updated daily.
The model was created by Marc Chaikin, a recognized expert in developing computerized stock selection models for professional money managers and individual investors, best known for two widely used indicators, the Chaikin Oscillator and Chaikin Persistency of Money Flow.
The recent volatility in the stock market requires unemotional analysis and disciplined decision-making tools. The Chaikin Power Gauge Rating is a valuable asset in deciding which stocks to buy and which stocks to eliminate from your portfolio states Marc Chaikin, founder and CEO of Chaikin Stock Research.
Investors following Chaikin's blog and Twitter posts since January would have avoided substantial losses if they sold stocks when the Power Gauge turned red. In the last seven months, Chaikin accurately advised his followers on 29 out of 31 stocks that had a bearish Power Gauge rating, indicating a negative potential (1). At the same time, the market was in an upward trend, so all 29 stocks were going against the tide. Each of these stocks, had they been sold when the Power Gauge showed red would have eliminated substantial losses and a lot of pain.
