Connors Research Trading Strategy Series: S&P 500 Trading with ConnorsRSI
Here's How You Can Swing-Trade for Short-term Gains AND
Stay In Your Comfort Zone -- with S&P 500 Stocks
Professional money managers have long bought quality stocks on pullbacks ...
Now you can follow the same strategy -- using quantified research & ConnorsRSI
Trade in Your Comfort-Zone
Active traders are often advised to stay in their "comfort zone".
Especially if they want to sleep at night.
In the U.S. Markets, that 'comfort zone' is most often found in S&P 500 Stocks. Here's why:
- The majority of U.S. money is traded by institutions & the majority of this money is pension and retirement money.
- The money managers of these funds often work under mandate to trade only "quality stocks"
- The companies in the S&P 500, with long histories of success, are generally considered to be the highest quality stocks available.
Now -- Here's What's New:
In the past, institutions used a 'Buy-and-Hold' strategy for their S&P 500 allocations.
More recently, professionals have looked for short-term weakness on individual S&P 500 stocks -- in order to buy short-term lows and sell when the price on that stock rises back to it's true value.
Now you can use this same approach -- with a new level of quantified accuracy -- using ConnorsRSI as your guide to finding short-term oversold S&P stocks.
Introducing: S&P 500 Trading with ConnorsRSIThis latest GuideBook, from our popular Connors Research Trading Strategy Series, will teach you the how to swing-trade S&P 500 stocks to capture short-term gains from mis-priced opportunities identified by ConnorsRSI.
The only quantified momentum oscillator, ConnorsRSI combines price, momentum, duration of the trend, and relative magnitude of the price change -- all in a single indicator.
ConnorsRSI gives you a quantified way to identify stocks most likely to reverse. And as you will see from the test results, especially on a percentage correct basis, trading S&P 500 stocks with ConnorsRSI can be an effective way to achieve growth within the comfort zone of the S&P 500.

Here is a Sample S&P 500 Trade
Shown below is a chart for US Surgical (ISRG) from March 2013.
As you can see in the chart, a declining ConnorsRSI (lower blue line) signals a setup on March 14, 2013. On the very next day, the conditions are met for a buy at $460.50 (green arrow).
One trading day later, on March 18th, an exit signal triggers at the close, based on a rising ConnorsRSI.
Our exit occurs on March 19 at $481.24 (red arrow), locking in a pre-commission gain of 4.5% for hold of just over 1 day!
Note: Setups for Entries & Exits for this strategy occur at the market close each day -- giving you plenty of time to set up your trades at your convenience the night before.
The ConnorsRSI Difference!What sets the S&P 500 Trading Strategy with ConnorsRSI Guidebook apart from other S&P 500 trading formulas is that we use ConnorsRSI to help identify BOTH the entry and exit points. ConnorsRSI is the first Quantified Momentum Oscillator -- and it has been adopted by thousands of traders since its release in November 2012.
We feel that it is specifically the use of ConnorsRSI that drives simulated test results with so many variations showing high levels of both Winning Trade Rates and Average P/L per Trade -- in the table above and in the GuideBook.
