of Chart Trading.
Part 1: MARKET MAPS shows how charting and technical analysis
fits into trading and investment strategies. It shows how market data is compiled in
charting programs and explores the difference between prediction and probability. This
section explains the various ways that price information is plotted on the computer screen
by charting software.
Part 2: IMPROVING THE CHART is divided into four sections.
explores the way chart patterns expose crowd
behaviour. We include trading rules for each chart pattern or indicator along with crowd
rules explaining the aspect of the crowd being measured or plotted. This covers support
and resistance, trend lines and trading set ups on bar charts.
CROWD MOVEMENT starts with moving averages, showing how these
indicators are used to develop trading and investment solutions. Trading examples show the
impact of different calculation methods as well as trading rules for each indicator. These
include moving average crossovers, MACD, MACD Histogram and Guppy multiple moving
averages. Rules for understanding how these indicators relate to the market crowd are also
included. For ready reference a short summary of each indicator is provided at the end of
CROWD THINKING includes those indicators designed to reveal
these thoughts. This is the oscillator group, including Bollinger Bands, Stochastics,
Relative Strength Index and the ADX group of indicators. Trading and crowd rules are
included for each. As with all previous sections, an actual practical trading example
using each indicator is also included.
CROWD ANALYSIS shows how statistical measures are used to
analyse the market. Trading rules are provided for the application of New High_New Low
Index and Advance_Decline information. This section also includes a detailed examination
of the relationship between price and volume in the Australian market. There are extensive
trading examples showing how the trading, and crowd rules, are applied in reality.
Part 3: THERE IS A RISK OF LOSS introduces new traders to the
concepts of risk, fear and greed. The concept of stop loss to protect capital and later,
profits, is discussed. We explain how risk is easily measured using a chart. The trading
and crowd rules are combined with a trading example to show how the count back line
techniques are used to identify, manage and control risk in a trade. We show what is
involved in selecting good charting software, explaining our software choices and showing
the pitfalls which come with poor choices.

CHART TRADING: AN APPROACH FOR INVESTORS AND TRADERS
"I have just finished this excellent book and would like to thank you for the
info it contains. It is straight to the point and is very understandable to a relative novice like me. I have been reading other trading books but none of
them explain the foundations of the market like you do."
