What Is a Market Signal?

When we discuss market signals, we are speaking about an unintentional or passive passage of information or an indication between participants of a market. For example, iIf a firm issues bonds, it indirectly shows that it needs capital and wants to retain control.

Note that a market signal is based on technical indicators and usually is a sign of when to sell or buy a specific product. It also brings to the attention of users the other options that are available, which leads to abnormal growth as well as short-term interests.

Through signaling, market participants are essentially creating a volatile market which can help to point out the opportunities to the investors and signal them if they disappear. Keep in mind that not every company markets a static environment.

We also have what is known as a trade signal, which can be seen as a trigger to buy or sell a security based on predetermined criteria. These signals can also be used to reconstitute a portfolio as well as shift sector allocations or take new positions. Traders have the ability to create trading signals using a variety of criteria, from simple ones,such as earning reports as well as volume surges, to complex signals that are derived using existing signals.
