Technical analysis and trading have undergone a tremendous transformation over the past decade. Exciting new vehicles like exchange-traded funds have combined with inexpensive high-speed computers, low-cost online trading accounts, and unprecedented access to information to create wealth-building opportunities that were previously unavailable to the majority of investors and traders.

  • Strategies for studying past market and chart patterns to more accurately forecast future market events
  • The four primary types of charts--line, bar, point and figure, and candlestick
  • What gaps can indicate, from breakaway and continuation to exhaustion and island reversal
  • When to use arithmetic scaling, and when a logarithmic chart is more practical
  • Aspects and uses of numerous types of oscillators, from stochastics and rates of change to MACD, ADX, and more
  • Government statistics--which matter most, and why they can reveal profitable opportunities
  • When, why, and how to use dozens of popular indicators, from the VIX index to the 10-30 DMA
  • Psychological tips and traps for ignoring market noise to instead focus on market opportunities
  • Insights for uncovering profit possibilities in China, India, and other emerging global markets

Through up, down, and neutral trends, and in every economic environment, millions of traders and investors have discovered that the tools of technical analysis can provide remarkable insights into pending market movements.
