Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Known internationally as ``The Father of Candlesticks,'' Nison reveals more Japanese charting methods which have never been published or used in the Western world. Describes kagi, renko and three-line break charts. Provides a brief review of candlesticks and previously unavailable candlestick patterns that can be used in equities, fixed-income, foreign exchange and overseas markets.

From the Inside Flap

Beyond Candlesticks New and powerful Japanese charting secrets revealed for today’s traders and investors In 1990, Steve Nison introduced traders in the West to a powerful analytical tool that had long given Japanese Investors a competitive edge. Now, with this groundbreaking new book, the "Father of Candlesticks" further revolutionizes technical analysis with an entire collection of stunningly effective Japanese techniques. In Beyond Candlesticks, Steve Nison unveils the mysteries of four more of Japan’s most closely guarded financial secrets—Kagi, Renko, Three-Line Break charts, and the disparity index—incredibly versatile techniques for forecasting and tracking market prices and buying and selling periods. Completely self-contained and requiring no prior experience with Japanese charting techniques, Beyond Candlesticks:
  • Introduces Kagl, Renko, and Three-Line Break charts—powerful non-time series charting techniques never before seen In the West
  • Explores the exotic twists and turns of the disparity index—a Japanese secret more exact and timely than its Western cousin, moving averages
  • Takes you step-by-step through each charting technique with the help of nearly 200 illustrations, dozens of detailed real-world examples, and clear-cut guidelines on how to use them In your day-to-day trading and Investing
  • Demonstrates how these techniques can be used on equities, futures, fixed-in-come, foreign exchange, and overseas markets
  • Explains how they can be merged with candlesticks and traditional Western techniques to create powerful new hybrids
But that’s not all. In addition to Instructing readers in these exciting new charting techniques, Nison also takes us deeper inside the mysteries of candlesticks than ever before. Expanding his coverage beyond the futures markets that were the focus of his 1991 classic, Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques, Nison describes candlestick patterns that can be applied to stocks, bonds, and foreign exchange. He also demonstrates new ways in which candlesticks alone or in conjunction with traditional Western techniques, can be adapted to virtually any trading, investing, or hedging strategy. Affording Western readers an unprecedented opportunity to acquaint themselves with these powerful, centuries-old techniques, Beyond Candlesticks is a resource that no trader, broker, analyst, or Investor can afford to be without.

If you already own "Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques" by the same author, then this is going to be alot of review for you. Most of the book is just much of the same information contained in aforementioned. Unless you are seeking a heavy dose of more of the same, no need to purchase this one, stick to the first book, which should serve you well as a reference.

Steve Nison goes through all of the major Candlestick patterns here. And, he shows you close calls as well. This is great, because the real world does not always have what is in the pretty picture in your book. Nison adds to the value by showing you how to use Candlesticks in conjunction with classic Western Technical analysis. If only he'd added a chapter on Elliott Wave Theory and Candlesticks (lots of reversal Candles at the end of waves). Buy this one instead of his first book if you are only buying one.

The first part of this book covers some main parts his best selling classic book on candlestick back in the early 1990s with some new insights. The second part of the book explains some new charting techniques only then known in Japan. These techinques I found are quite adequate if used with candlesticks but nothing revolutionary as I have expected. Candlestick charting is still the fundamental tool used for trading.

I can't put this one down. It is a great book that goes into great detail to explain candlesticks and how they represent market forces and trends. If you are doing any day trading at all, to ignore candlesticks is to leave money on the table. I highly recommend this book to all day traders. The charts are fantastic and there are a million illustrations that help you understand how the candlesticks work. Just a great book.

Beyond CandleSticks is one of the more helpful books in truly explaining the underlying meaning of multiple days of trading accompanied by volume. This book can significantly help you lock in profits when used correctly by indicating when a stock has topped or bottomed out. Make sure you select a good charting system that assists with the user interface, like Telescan, which actually lists the acronym of the trading pattern above the element displayed. This function helps save time when analyzing many stocks at any time. I highly recommend this for options or short-term traders. Candlestick charting is not just a charting system it's a hobby. I have truly enjoyed buying and selling stocks more since reading and learning more about this Technique. Good luck to all you traders out there.

Nison's "Beyond Candlesticks" one of my top 3 favorite trading books and provides dozens of advanced, practical trading strategies as he reveals the strongest candle patterns.

Probably the most useful part of it, is understanding how much clearer trading signals become, once you see the reasons why specific patterns reveal long/short pressure on stocks as they're moving.

Highly recommend this along with his videos -- I've become a better trader due to learning from Nison's techniques and recommend this as a personal favorite book. I also refer my traders at Daytrading University to it, as a "must read" to help build trading skills.

Nison has been hired by top Wall Street institutions to train Their market makers and specialists, and getting this rare knowledge in his books and videos is priceless. Get this one.

Here's how much I like it: I recently moved out of state, and this is one of the few books that "made the cut", that I'll always be keeping with me. Superb precision trading skills revealed in this one. It's a keeper.

This is a good addition to Nison's first book, and does contain some new candlestick information. There are a few new patterns Nison mentions which are variations of patterns in his first book. He discusses actual trading techniques, ie when to buy, sell, where to put stops, which I found lacking in the first book. I found this information to be worthwhile, which is contained in the first half of the book.

The second half of the book deals mostly in Kagi, Renko, and Three-Line Charts. I'm not sure what to think about these. I don't know if I'll ever use the information I learned to draw charts by hand, but it is definitely a new way to analyze and chart data. These charts essentially track solely the movement of stocks without regard to time. The 3 Line break chart requires a strong trend to be well reversed before a new line will show on the chart, hence a new low will have to break 3 new highs' beginning low in order to appear on the chart. The Renko chart is similar but a new line is drawn after a specified increase/decrease in the price has been met (either nominal or percentage).

There is a section on moving averages that is relatively uninformative. Nison gives the Japanese terms for when a short MA crosses a longer-term MA. He notes the MAs that Japanese traders like to use: 3, 9, 13, 26.

I consider the first half very valuable, and the second half worth the read, but I'm not sure how valuable the information will be to a personal investor like myself. All in all, a good book and good read. Nison delivers again.
