If you an information junkie, you could also try this site

Some of the information is premium but a lot is free. You can register for a
series of free daily emails commenting mainly on technical issues with a
bias to looking at option volumes and quantitative measures of market
sentiment. They seem to take the contrarian view that positive market
sentiment means the market is more likely to drop.

Thank you for your reply Morgy. I haven't checked out the NYSE or Nasdaq
but will do so after dark once my chores are done. I've bookmarked the site - thanks. does a pretty nice
free charting (and limited filtering) service for free for the NYSE. Their
java applet for charting lets you draw some really nice stuff compared to
bigcharts java applet which is kind of buggy on my system (sometimes fails
load with my settings). Sure it is no metastock...but it is pretty nice.
interesting to note how much more information is available is for free if
are examining the NYSE. For example, my filtering service
has some extra abilities for filtering compared to their industry index and
comparing the strength versus other indexes like the S&P 500 etc..

Armed with more information, and what looks like a market that follows the
patterns described in the books I have been reading - it should be easier to
win, shouldn't it? I am not saying winning will be easy. I just think that
the risk could be reduced somewhat versus markets that are not as active
as the ASX and the NZSE. Thoughts on this anyone?
