Throughout the book, Brooks focuses primarily on 5 minutecandle charts—all of which are created withTradeStation—to illustrate basic principles, but alsodiscusses daily and weekly charts. And since he trades more thanjust E-mini S&P 500 futures, Brooks also details how priceaction can be used as the basis for trading stocks, forex, TreasuryNote futures, and options.

A breakthrough trading book that provides powerful insights on profitable technical patterns and strategies The Art and Science of Technical Analysis is a groundbreaking work that bridges the gaps between the academic view of markets, technical analysis, and profitable trading. The book explores why randomness prevails in markets most, but not all, of the time and how technical analysis can be used to capture statistically validated patterns in certain types of market conditions. The belief of the book is that buying and selling pressure causes patterns in prices, but that these technical patterns are only effective in the presence of true buying/selling imbalance. The Art and Science of Technical Analysis is supported by extensive statistical analysis of the markets, which will debunk some tools and patterns such as Fibonacci analysis, and endorse other tools and trade setups. In addition, this reliable resource discusses trader psychology and trader learning curves based on the author's extensive experience as a trader and trainer of traders. Offers serious traders a way to think about market problems, understand their own performance, and help find a more productive path forward Includes extensive research to validate specific money-making patterns and strategies Written by an experienced market practitioner who has trained and worked with many top traders Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, The Art and Science of Technical Analysis will give you a realistic sense of how markets behave, when and how technical analysis works, and what it really takes to trade successfully.

Extract from the Preface: '1. What the book coversThis book is about day trading. Using the price action itself, rather than any of the usual array of indicators based on it. The US 30-year Treasury Bond Futures is the favoured instrument - the T-Bonds, as they are commonly called. There are good reasons for choosing this instrument to learn to trade - one being that they do not require a detailed knowledge of bonds themselves. The other attractions, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran, are to do with liquidity, range, behaviour, patterns and the price action displayed at the key support and resistance points it encounters.Most days the T-bonds offer trading opportunities which can be taken within a money management environment that can give you an edge for profit - and this book has been designed to show you how to do just that. Fully illustrated with charts taken from a live trading screen and displayed in exactly the way you would have seen them for yourself, on your computer monitor. What you see is not just what happened, in detail, but also clear evidence of just how you could have profited yourself from each trading situation.2. Who the book is forThis book has been written for anyone wishing to day trade, using a discretionary method, rather than a mechanical system. It is a learning tool which should commend itself to the experienced trader, as much as to someone new to this business. Certainly I hope that any raw recruit would find it an easy read, even if it took a while longer to digest the subject matter as a whole.3. How the book is structuredThe seasoned trader will probably start by skip reading, to see if he can cut to the chase quickly. The lessexperienced will immediately see - from the detail of the charts alone - that there is a great deal of info

While currency markets often exhibit long-term trends that most traders love, they sometimes lapse into trading ranges for extended periods of time. In those environments, traders need to adjust their approaches in order to capture profits from shorter and more frequent market swings. In this video, Greg Michalowski reveals tactics and strategies that work in markets where the fundamentals are unable to create a sustainable trend. He asserts that traders should trade less; wait for good trade location; take partial profits when possible; follow popular technical indicators; be alert for technical failures; and be quick to abandon fundamental views that are not borne out by price action. Michalowski notes that in trending markets, fundamentals overpower technicals. In trading range markets, technicals trump fundamentals. That being the case, he advocates that traders pay close attention to widely followed indicators, including 100-day and 200-day moving averages; Fibonacci retracements; and simple trend lines, and wait for multiple confirmations before entering a trade. Citing several examples from the U.S. dollar market, Michalowski demonstrates how an intersection of trend lines and the 100- and 200-day moving averages was a springboard to one of the biggest moves of 2012. For multiple time-frame confirmation, Michalowski suggests traders use daily, hourly, and five-minute charts. Once a move has started, it should continue as long as the 100-day moving average, trend line, and Fibonacci retracements are not violated. If these key technical levels are violated, it's a signal to get out of the trade. Filled with real-world examples, this video will teach you: How to construct a long-term technical map of the market How to profit in tight trading range markets How to "risk a little" capital to make "more than a little" in profits How to determine when a trading range is ending and new trend is emerging How to use key technical tools to time entries and exits Practical and easy to understand, the insights and strategies in this video will give you the perspective to assess market movements and pinpoint low-risk trading opportunities.

Traders who use charts to time their moves rely on strong and clear signals. Unfortunately, price levels and traditional technical indicators alone aren't always reliable. There is a solution: candlestick signs, moves, and patterns. When these visual signs of reversal or continuation are integrated with other signals, they provide the strongest possible entry and exit timing: both the signal and the means for confirming it. In this easy-to-use book, renowned trader Michael C. Thomsett demystifies candlesticks and shows active traders exactly how to use them. In Trading with Candlesticks, Thomsett explains how each leading candlestick works, how they appear, and how to interpret them to discover emerging price moves and trend reversals, as well as confirmations of existing trends. Trading with Candlesticks shows dozens of examples of candlestick signs, moves and patterns in action, explaining them not in isolation, but as part of broader, developing price trends on real stock charts. Thomsett also discusses failed signals, and offers guidelines for identifying the likely impending failure or success of each pattern. While no investing approach is 100% foolproof, Thomsett's system for recognizing candlestick signals and confirming them with other technical signs makes technical analysis more accurate than it's ever been before.
