(From The Jacket) – Ultra-fast, inexpensive computers and other technological breakthroughs have made technical analysis and the study of price behavior far more accurate and accessible than in the past. But while traders and investors looking for an edge are increasingly turning to chart analysis to increase their market understanding and overall confidence, they must still have a firm underpinning of knowledge if they are to prevent themselves from stumbling into mistakes that have cost dearly in the past.
“Technical Analysis Applications” is the one book that every trader should read to understand what technical analysis can do for investing programs, what it cannot do, and how to use technical analysis and charting to understand and act on market tendencies in a wide variety of situations. Written to help anyone take the guesswork out of the trading day and replace it with the confidence that comes from understanding what has happened and why, this results-oriented book examines:
- Trends–What they are, why they occur, and how traders can use charts to help identify continuation patterns or reversals
- Chart patterns–What some of the most popular and potentially profitable patterns look like, and what they’re trying to tell you about the market
- Quantitative methods–Examination of moving averages, Gann Analysis, Elliott Wave, and other market-proven methods
- Bullish and bearish signals–How to recognize, distinquish, and act on them in a variety of charting situations
- Helpful hints and trading tips–Guidelines for determining the best mix of tools and techniques for a particular market or trading style
In today’s up-and-down financial markets, profit opportunities appear and disappear continuously throughout each trading day. The key to taking advantage of these opportunities is to know they are coming in advance, and the key to this knowledge is to obtain a solid understanding of modern technical analyis.
“Technical Analysis Applications” takes this wide-ranging subject, too often shrouded in double-speak and complex mathematics, and makes it both coherent and practical. Filled with sample charts, examples of actual trades, and in-depth yet understandable descriptions, it will help you develop a more complete understanding of the proven and profitable world of technical analysis.
