Time your trades more accurately and reliably! The secret is to combine western technical analysis with eastern candlestick methods. In Profiting from Technical Analysis and Candlestick Indicators, top trader and best-selling author Michael C. Thomsett shows you how. Using more than 100 easy-to-understand visuals, Thomsett explains why candlesticks complement traditional resistance/support-based analyses rather than contradicting or competing with them. One step at a time, you'll learn how to use them together to identify crucial reversal and confirmation signals more rapidly and reliably. You'll learn how to use each system to gain cross-confirmation and strengthen the reliability of your predictions; uncover reversal signals in both systems; forecast pricing; recognize signal failures and false leads; profit from swing trading; and reduce risk. Profiting from Technical Analysis and Candlestick Indicators will be valuable to wide audiences of professional and institutional investors, experienced individuals or institutional portfolio managers, and all experienced traders who use technical analysis for guidance.
