From farmer to high school teacher to successful investor and financial advisor, Tom Scollon's career path has been diverse. Yet this interesting mix has resulted in far-reaching experience in a range of industries and enabled him to enjoy unmitigated success trading the markets. He has invested successfully on the Australian stockmarket for more than 20 years trading equities, options and other financial instruments using technical analysis techniques to determine trends and chart market movements. Tom believes that studying simple trends such as price and volume can reveal much about a stock’s prospects. He uses technical indicators such as “On Balance Volume”, “Bollinger Bands” and “Elliott Wave” to predict where the market might head next. He is a great teacher and in his articles he translates his views into easy-to-understand concepts for all levels of traders, and has thus developed a strong following over the years.

Bonds And The Caviar Index

20 Oct, 2003
So you might ask what is the Caviar Index – it is simply a measure of the good times. When times are good – or we perceive them to be - then we start to live like lords again. We dine out more – at better restaurants – luxury car showrooms become busier and so and so on. Based on Australian economic data we supposedly have been living off a green paddock with rich pickings over the last few years – better than most in the western world at least. But yet few people would proclaim that these have been years of milk and honey and in fact on the contrary it has sort of been hard going some would say.

Editor: The Markets Still Have Momentum

There is little doubt that the markets have confirmed sustainability and this appears likely to continue barring any major surprises. Technically the markets still want to keep rising.

Again, Is It Too Late?

13 Oct, 2003
I am revisiting the question “is it too late to enter the market?”, as there are so many investors constantly asking this question. They look at the juicy profits achieved over the last few months and ask is there room for more. I believe the short answer is yes but that does not mean you go out and splurge tomorrow.

Betide The Change Of Tide

29 Sep, 2003
You might ask why are we inflicted with such uncertainty all of a sudden. Life was going along swimmingly then all of a sudden we are questioning the road we have been travelling as road blocks such as currency turmoil, oil production cuts, new concerns about world growth etc. etc. are put in our way.

Editor Still Can't Get Excited

This has just been too easy and with the name Tom – Thomas as my mother still calls me – I am the disbeliever (Didimus) about this on-going rally.
