It has a LOT LOT LOT more depth than the others. There is more to candlesticks (or any price movement analysis) than just a bunch of patterns, names, formations ... the other books are far far too brief. I cannot emphasise this enough.
Look at all the other reviews for this book, many many good words said.
It is very readable, very clear, the examples are excellent, but most valuable are the insights for all the patterns ... that other books simply do not have.
Sure, it costs a bit more than the other candlestick books, but hey, how much money are you trading? Does an extra 30 or 50 bucks make that much difference for the extra insight you will gain?
This is not just the best ~Candlestick~ book, but it is a very very good TA book as well. Candlesticks are, after all, just a way of plotting price movements.
Note that, in searching the web for info. on TA and investing, this book came up time and time again as ~highly~ recommended. Now I pass that recommendation on.
Note also Nison has another book, "Beyond Candlesticks", and while I think that this is also a good book, get this one first and learn it all, the second book concentrates more on a few "Advanced" techniques, I don't know if they are so much advanced as they are just a few more techniques + brushing over what is in the first book.Read more ›
I can say that candlesticks have kept me away from losses. But you can hardly make good money following candlesticks alone.
THe continuation patternss are more important than the reversal patterns. Reversals can be treacherous. Reversals MUST be confirmed by a break in trend. Indeed candlestics alone can be dangerous. See it for yourself, only 35 percent of hammers are harbingers of a reversal.YOu have to combine candles with western moving averages.
All in all I have purchased hundreds of trading books and threw them in the garbage. This is the one I keep and regularly refer to.
Candlestics are superb in calculating stops.
