    Don't miss out on one of the most important trading books of recent times. This is a must for any person ready to trade profitably with technical analysis.

    "In this well researched and documented book Sylvain Vervoort presents a concise, but highly readable, methodology. His strength is his ability to examine a large number of technical analysis tools, explain them understandably but briefly, and then select from them the strongest features of each. These he then combines and relates to one another, using his own proprietary calculations, emerging with a complete and concise trading method. Marrying this to strong computer tools, he gives us a comprehensive way of buying and selling, and also managing our money. This is a worthwhile addition to the realm of Technical Analysis."

    "Sylvain Vervoots new book describes a technical trading method he calls "LOCKIT," which is an acronym for the principle components of any good investment or trading system: selection, timing, capital risk control, and money management. The great value I found in the book is the extraordinarily clear descriptions of the technical indicators, charts, and oscillators he uses, both traditional and esoteric. For this reason alone, his book is a valuable technical-analysis guide and reference."
