Ed Yardeni, who was the Chief Investment Strategist for Oak Associates as well as a professor and an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank, developed the FED model. This model compares bond rates to equity premiums. For example, if the 10-year Treasury note has a higher earnings yield than the stock market (as calculated based on the trailing 12 months), you should buy bonds. If, on the other hand, the earnings yield of the market is above that of bonds, you should buy equities.
"In our perspective, this move will align with commodities market timings. However, we will have to wait for Exchanges to implement the same with prior approval of SEBI. Whether the extended timings will be for all securities or securities in equity derivatives market will trade only till the time underlying equities trade and only indexes will be allowed to trade for extended hours," he further said.
Placing a sell/stop in the correct place works great for the 1 X leveraged etf, but when you are in a 3 X leveraged etf setting the sell/stop is a totally different game. Very rarely do I let the original sell/stop be hit before I will exit the trade as you have to give the stock some wiggle room when you first take a position. As more information becomes available you can start to make adjustments to your sell/stop mentally. A 3 X etf can get away from you in a heartbeat so one has to pay very close attention at all times.
A few of these holidays also lead to early closes on additional days. For example, on the Friday after Thanksgiving Day, the stock market closes after 1:00 p.m. ET. If Christmas Eve or the day before Independence Day fall on a weekday, those days are also subject to early closes, with the market again closing at 1:00 p.m. If Independence Day is a Saturday, then Friday, July 3, is still recognized as a holiday and the exchanges are closed.
“In case, stock exchanges are desirous of extending the trade timings beyond the extant trading hours, prior approval from SEBI shall be sought along with a detailed proposal including the framework for risk management, settlement process, monitoring of positions, availability of manpower, system capability, surveillance systems, etc,” SEBI said further.
Stock Market Timing,Volume 2 analyzes and gives weighted values (scores) to each long-term planetary cycle, its phases (aspects), and their correlation to 50-week or greater cycles in the U.S. stock market -- going all the way back to the beginning in 1789! Which planetary cycles correlate with the 18-year and greater stock market cycles (and hence trends)? Which correlate more with the four-year cycles? Which correlate with long-term cycle crests, and which to long-term cycle troughs? And what is the correlation to the three long-term Saturn Planetary pair cycles that just started June 25, 1998 and last through May, 2000?

Fundamentals: Stock and bond markets have fundamental data points that drive price action. Price/earnings ratios, interest rates, credit ratings and debt/equity ratios are some of the financial metrics traders use to price stocks and bonds. Commodities, on the other hand, have few if any such reliable metrics. Price action is usually driven by short-, intermediate- or long-term market sentiment. As a result, analyzing commodities markets is much more difficult.
Given the sheer variety of cryptocurrencies you can’t define all of them as securities or all of them as currencies. Instead a much better analogue for cryptocurrencies are real-world commodities, indeed Bitcoin is often referred to as “digital gold” and many cryptocurrencies are “mined” by computers. A commodity is normally free from outside control, barring regulations, and their value is determined by market factors.

However, on average according to the work of Wharton professor Jeremy Siegel, the stock market has, on average over long time periods, returned 6.5% to 7% a year. Thus on average, there is a potential cost to being out of the market. This is a hurdle for any timing rule or process to overcome because on average if you’re out of the market and wrong then you’re potentially losing out of a material gain, and over a period of years those losses can add up. On the other hand, if you’re in the market you’ll see ups and downs, but historically returns to longer term investors willing to hold stocks for decades and wait out bad markets has been attractive.

Most historians agree, though, that the adoption of gold coins as a medium of exchange in medieval Europe played a key role in the development of commodity markets. Regions throughout Europe began making their own specialized gold coins and trading with merchants returning from the East Indies and Asia. These developments led to the need for centralized exchanges.
Gasoline: The main use of this refined crude oil product is as a source of fuel for cars, light-duty trucks and motorcycles. Gasoline prices can have an enormous effect on the overall economy since demand for the commodity is generally inelastic. That is, consumers need to put gasoline in their vehicles to go to work, school and other essential activities. Many traders trade crack spreads, which are the differences between crude oil prices and the price of refined crude products such as gasoline.
The 21st century ushered in the era of online trading. Soon electronic marketplaces replaced physical trading floors. These developments may have had the biggest impact on commodities futures markets since commodities trading became available to millions of people around the globe.

For starters, you'll definitely need to know the standard trading hours on U.S. stock exchanges like the Nasdaq or the New York Stock Exchange. But what if you're investing in something available elsewhere, based in another country? When are the markets from that country open? And what if you're looking to do some additional trading before or after? Can you do it, and should you?

This measure has since become known as the “Buffett Ratio” (most charts use GDP instead of GNP, hence the different percentages from Buffett’s quote). One obvious issue with this ratio is that it compares companies with increasing international exposure to domestic economic activity. Another potential issue revolves around higher corporate profit margins. While profit margins fluctuate with the economic cycle, changes in industry composition and industry concentration could be elevating margins long-term.

The above three sessions represent the stock market timing of stock exchanges in India. However, one special trading session happens not during the trading hours. It takes place during the festival of Diwali. The trading session is termed as “Mahurat Trading”. The date and time are declared few days before Diwali. In fact, the trading session begins in the evening and lasts for one hour. The timing of the session, in general, is 6.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. The pre-open session is from 6.15 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.
