  • Identify the right market to trade
  • Determine which way the market is moving

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Eric C. Sedensky VINE VOICE on June 19, 2011
Format: Hardcover
When I started reading this book, it wasn't long before I started to formulate an opinion, and I was thinking this couldn't possible more than a three star book. It was highly technical even when addressing very general subject, and the tone seemed a bit condescending. It didn't help that the authors kept flogging their earlier book, Mastering the Currency Market: Forex Strategies for High and Low Volatility Markets. As I neared the halfway point, I began thinking that I would have to give the authors four stars, because everything they were saying was making sense. Sure, it was still very technical, and it was definitely becoming more and more geared for a specialized, limited type of short-term trader, but the charts (candlesticks) made sense and accurately illustrated the authors' points, and the strategies continued to be sensible and feasible. As I neared the end of the book, despite reading for the umpteenth time that such-and-such was a topic covered in their other book, I found myself thinking that the information conveyed in this book is valuable, useful, practical, and reasonable, and anyone who is serious about making money in some kind of financial market would probably be able to use some of what this book contains. The fact that they close out the book with concrete trading plans (not strategies or analysis) tailored to different markets and traders and built on their earlier chapters of analysis, trend spotting, and trade timing, finally convinced me that this is a five star book.Read more ›

Haven't read the whole book yet, about half of it. But it seems to be a good book for momentum and price action. A lot of it pertains to the MACD , Fibs and Key level areas. Also emphasizes fundamentals. I like the book because it is detailed and explains price action and turning points pretty well. If your into price action, which can cover many aspects of trading, from Wyckoff to Nison and even Tom Williams VSA. Also has some explanation of supply and demand. If your a diverse trader then this would be a good book to get some ideas.
