Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a valuable addition to the limited literature available...essential reading for any trader who uses candles on a regular basis."The Technical Analyst June 2008 "Richard Arms' 'equivolume' charts provide the clearest depiction of how price and volume interact." (Investors Chronicle, March 27th 2009)

From the Inside Flap

Richard Arms is one of the world's most respected stock market technicians. His expertise in this field is unparalleled, and his groundbreaking theories in volume analysis and market forecasting have forever changed the way traders perceive markets. Now, in Stop and Make Money, Arms presents a short-term approach to trading using the technical methods he has pioneered—as well as other established technical tools—over the course of his successful forty-year career.

In a straightforward and accessible style, Arms reveals how to profit from short-term price movements in the stock market—whether you're buying or selling short—by accurately interpreting price/volume information and effectively employing stop orders to enter and exit positions.

Before getting down to details, Arms briefly explores some essential trading examples and explains the advantages of technical analysis. He also prepares you for the journey ahead by offering insights and advice on what you might need to achieve your goals, including charting services, quotations services, a brokerage account, and more. Then, in the chapters that follow, Arms skillfully illustrates the self-developed techniques that have allowed him to manage trades for maximum profits during his many years in the market. Topics discussed include everything from the Equivolume charting system and the Arms Index—also known as TRIN—to Volume Adjusted Moving Averages and Ease of Movement. Along the way, you'll also become familiar with conventional technical tools, such as support and resistance, trendlines, and channels, which fit into Arms's strategy.

To enhance your understanding of this proven trading method, a companion CD-ROM offers a free thirty-day subscription to MetaStock End-of-Day data and software. Taking advantage of the free MetaStock charting systems provided—at least during your learning phase—is highly recommended, since they closely conform to the examples used throughout the book.

While many of the drawbacks to successful trading have been largely eliminated, it still takes knowledge, discipline, and hard work to capture considerable profits. Nobody knows this better than Richard Arms. And with Stop and Make Money, Arms will show you how to observe and anticipate short-term stock market moves in order to improve your overall trading activities.

Unless you are going to learn the author's proprietary Equivolume Charting System and to subsribe particular websites (MetaStock recommended in this book with a one month free trial), please give this a pass. For those who want to learn TA, there are plenty of better alternatives, say, "High Probability Trading by Marcel Link".

Being relatively new to trading, I wondered if the information in the book would be over my head. Instead I found it very interesting, easy to understand and even entertaining. It's full of charts and examples and has a disk for a free month's subscription to MetaStock so the reader can experience the charting first-hand.

Since reading Richard Arms' book, I've been able to avoid losses and take more profits by carefully evaluating the direction of the market and using stop orders to both enter and exit trades. I never considered entering a trade with a Stop Limit order before. The concept is brilliant and it works like a charm.

Don't be put off by the price of this book. It is literally "worth its weight in gold." It's one you'll keep on your desk and refer to often.

I really hate when an author gabbles on about stuff that was in his prior published work...particularly when all I need is the formula. So, I've gotta run out and buy all the prior stuff just to understand the current stuff.

Lot's of sizzle...but where's the beef? The hot dog is the hybrid axis that is time...now it is a stretched non-linear axis that has volume concomitant with big power boxes.

Although it is really no surprise, there is zero statistical or even pseudo-analytic support for the methodology Arm's pushing here. eSignal gave a big plug to this volume. It really isn't worth much.

This could be a good "beginner's" guide to trading but if you rely on this for trading - I guarantee that eventually you WILL lose. There is no such thing as a "good" - let alone "excellent" or "realistic" guides to trading. Remember, you are trading against multi-million dollar computers and continually back tested algorithms used by multi-billion (even trillion) dollar corporations that will eat your tiny investment for a snack. This is like a 12 year old boxing against a world champion. You don't have a chance - unless you are very, very, very lucky. How's YOUR luck been?

I was excited about this book . I don't paper trade so I gave the method outlined in this book a go and I hit my stop in the first few hours of markets open for a loss today( ouch ) . It was painful because the book is so well written and I am sure the method works , possibly just not for myself . I followed all the rules outlined in the book and I am thankful for my stop , but It was painful to loose so fast . This is a very solid book and Mr. Arms is a very knowledgeable writer/ trader but this book could liquidate your money fast . Please be-careful . I gave this book 3 stars because I learned much from this book despite my market loss . I am sure the Mr. Arms has the best intentions and this system will work for some people .
