Nowadays, many equity analysts and stock investors who are interested in equity research are also interested in following stock trends by using charting tools and applying technical analysis. Technical analysis generally includes using tools such as Moving Averages, Candlesticks with transaction volume, Bollinger Bands, MACD, etc. which are all available at many well-known finance and investing internet websites or companies which supply stock data and analysis.
However, mastering technical analysis using the above tools for each stock requires a considerable amount of time and effort, as well as a high level of education in finance. Even for the very experienced equity technical analysts and stock investors, it is not easy to predict stock prices and trends accurately, not to mention the average stock investors who will find understanding how to use the charting tools difficult.
To solve the problem, I have developed my own equity technical analysis software called myStockPoint®, a computer program that can analyze each stock by using daily market close prices with the most common technical analysis tools. The resulting technical analysis for each stock is then translated into a score using a 100-point scoring system.
myStockPoint® has three strengths that are superior to other available technical analysis software on the market:
- Since each technical analytic tool has its strengths and weaknesses, a specific tool that gives an accurate trend prediction under certain situations can be totally wrong under other conditions, thus mastering just one or two methods is not enough to generate reasonable results. In myStockPoint®, I have combined various methods in technical analysis to evaluate each stock. This way, I can consolidate the strengths of various technical analysis tools but avoid the weaknessess of each method, enhancing the overall accuracy of the resulting analysis.
- Just as children who understand in school what it means by a score of 100 or 50, myStockPoint® technical analysis software is also based on a 100-point scoring system, with scores above 80 indicating high momentum stocks, 60 or above indicating stocks that should be observed longer and scores below 60 warning of weaker stocks. Scores that are too low are excluded in the final report. By using this scoring system, any investor can understand whether the stock being analyzed has a strong or weak momentum and make investment decisions accordingly.
- Since computer programs can process data with extremely high speed, processing data for over thousands of stocks will only take five minutes. Other than specific breaking news that will cause large stock price movements during the day, strong momentum stocks following a normal trend should show up in myStockPoint® software with high scores, thereby helping investors to quickly search for high potential stocks with strong momentum for the day.
現今大多股票分析員，和有興趣研究股票之投資者，都會對股票走勢詳細分析，而分析方法，不外乎平均組合線（ MA ），陰陽燭，成交量，強弱線，以至牛熊差距（ MACD ）等等技術分析。
本人有見及此，利用電腦程式，根據上述大多數人共識技術走勢分析，對每日收市後每隻股票之情況，用 100 分之形式去評分。創立我的股票分析軟件，名為〝股票分數〞，英文稱為〝 StockPoint 〞。
- 以一百分評估每隻股票，像全世界初上學校之小孩，亦明白 100 分， 60 分以至零分是甚麼意思，本軟件亦是以 80 分以上為強勢之股票， 60 分及以上，表示可以繼續持有， 60 分以下，就要小心。太低分就要沽出。所以，任何投資者都可以好明白那隻股票，現時是強勢，或是弱勢，從而可以作出入市決定。
