Intermarket Analysis

While some traders lean toward fundamentals, others are technically bent.  Samantha takes an in-depth look at similarities and divergences between asset classes and then looks across a modality of studies.  

Sector Rotation  

Samantha talks about institutional money flow – BIG money!  She uses hourly, daily, and weekly time-frames on her charts, along with particular indicators, to help her identify when a trend has changed, signaling a time to get out or stay in.  Price action is key when following a stock or asset class.

Lawyer a Trade

One of Samantha’s greatest assets is her adaptability.  She starts with the big picture (macro) in mind, but is flexible enough to change her opinion as she drills down to the finer, more technical points (micro).  She strives to look at each trade without an agenda or bias.


Samantha trades Bitcoin like a commodity.  It has responded beautifully to technical analysis.  But for her, the jury is still out on whether or not it will ever replace the dollar.  So, for now, Samantha will continue to trade it…but not worship it.
