I have previously had a go at forecasting, and come up with a multitude of techniques or ways of doing things to enrich yourself. of course, the best time to trade is when the major markets are buying or awake, so, for us here in south africa, your best time to trade is when wall street is 'awake.'
Basically, they will buy your goods, or be trying to unload as the day is half way done and everyone was trading in Japan and China. if you were to observe that they are behind on information, and in a hurry to satisfy their customers or bank branches - bosses? - you will know they will buy nearly any deal to sell later that looks good. so, brand power is the first thing that registers on the board, then they look right to the price. so, you need to take into account what is going on with the eastern and European markets, then choose what sounded like a good deal yesterday to sell to them today.
Now, you need to buy something that is recognized and going south or north, so as to predict your selling price.
