MktMetrics Ranking

This list of Signals & Indicators would not be complete without the current MktMetrics Ranking. MktMetrics.com wants to make sure that a stock, sector or exchange traded fund has sponsorship from the Exchange Insiders. This is provided when two, of our three, proprietary indicators of (1) price, (2) volume, and (3) trend are positive is judged a Buy. If all three are positive it becomes a strong Buy.


MktMetrics.com provides a forecast of the next day’s (a) stock Open, High and Low, (b) levels of Block Trading activity, (c) DJIA Probability % of Being Up Tomorrow, and (d) the Stock Market Outlook.

MktMetrics.com results are derived from quantitative analysis and computer generated artificial intelligence predicated upon Specialists and Market Makers activity. While there is no system that can guarantee a fund or stock’s outcome, the MktMetrics.com proprietary process is consistently accurate with its next day’s forecast. Exceptions to the results are:

  • earnings surprises
  • futures and options expiration
  • post FOMC meetings
  • political and catastrophic events

Such event driven unforeseen possibilities could temporarily disrupt the Stock Market and forecast for that day. MktMetrics.com will adjust as the market digests the news.

When using the next day’s stock Open, High and Low forecast, common sense must be used. Our leading indicator is the DJIA Probability % of Being Up Tomorrow. If the probability is high (70% or higher), then common sense would dictate that your stock has a good chance of meeting or exceeding the projected high. If the DJIA Probability % of Being Up Tomorrow is low (30% or lower), then common sense would dictate that your stock has a good chance of meeting or exceeding the projected low. Sometimes a gap-opening is higher or lower than our predicted Open price. This action is unpredictable and is the direct result of opening demand or supply the Exchange Insider must fill. Take the other side of the trade, like he does. On gaps at the opening profits are made by using the MktMetrics.com High or Low as your entry, as the gap-opening should close and return to the predicted Open price, at which time you close your position.

When the predicted Open, High and Low prices correlate close to the predicted levels of Block Trading activity and/or the 8, 21, 50, 65, 150, 200 day moving averages, that alone could be a very strong indication those price objectives could be met. On rally days, we have seen a stock’s high, one point above the next day’s predicted low. On days of declining activity, we have seen a stock’s low, one point below the next day’s predicted high. Compare predicted block-trading activity with the moving averages to gauge where the levels of support and resistance are for the next day.

It is always wise to watch closely the (1) Market trend (2) Sector trend and (3) Stock trend. Attempt to make your money on the “meat of the move” meaning don’t attempt to sell at the high, or buy at the low.
