The Master Swing Trader: Tools and Techniques to Profit from Outstanding
Short-term Trading Opportunities by Alan S. Farley
Excellent news for traders! Finally – there is a comprehensive new guide to Swing Trading methods for seizing short-term trading opportunities, and it’s sure to help all traders eager to find a happy medium between the two extremes of buy-and-holders and the frenzied pace of the day trader.
Noted trader Alan Farley’s excellent new book, "The Master Swing Trader" provides a wide range of powerful techniques for traders of all persuasions who want to pinpoint tremendous opportunities presented by shorter-term price moves, which are generally missed by the majority of other market participants.
Swing trading offers traders the unique ability to isolate high-probability trade set-ups and difficult-to-spot opportunities before they disappear. By applying Farley’s innovative and proven system of Pattern Cycles, traders will gain a significant edge in the markets by spotlighting and closing out superior trade set ups one step ahead of the trading pack.
Combining his own unique and original trading methods with traditional technical analysis tools, Farley’s strategy addresses reward, risk and
stop-loss considerations. He also provides tips for making informed choices during all phases of short term trading development, which will furnish traders with much-needed support on the road to building consistent trading performance.
Broken down into 3 clear sections, Farley’s thick new work covers such
critical points for traders as...
- Tips, tactics and "workflows" to make informed choices at each stage of short term trade evolution
- The "7 bells" – a definitive approach to uncovering high-probability short term trading prospects
- "30 Rules for the Master Swing Trader"
- Skillful ways to shift tactics quickly as conditions change
- Indicators to predict the impact of crowd behavior on trend, range and price development – and much, much more.
And, while "Swing Trading" has steadily gained popularity over the past few years, little has been available to help educate traders use this valuable technique. A handful of books devote a chapter or so to the topic – but the popular "Swing Trading with Oliver Velez" video has been about the only in-depth product around. Now – Alan Farley’s thorough, understandable new work provides a detailed approach that will help you move into - and master - the tremendous potential to be found in shorter-term markets.
And don’t be put off by the "Swing Trading" moniker. This classic concept has applications that are universal to anyone investing today. As Farley notes, "In reality, swing trading characterizes a time-frame independent strategy that executes single, direct price movement." This means his methods can help traders find excellent opportunities in both 5 minute or 3 week charts, or just about any timeframe. With its detailed treatment of technical analysis methods applied to today’s
volatile markets, plus his own, proven "Pattern Cycles" methodology, this unique book will provide something for everyone. Even experienced traders will find fresh new concepts to ponder.
As Farley himself says, "The swing trader should read this book. But so
should the day trader. And let’s not leave out the position trader or
technically-oriented investors! Day traders will discover short-term tactics that don’t rely on scalping ...Mutual fund investors can improve their timing with these classic principles ...Is it unusual for one trading concept to have such broad applications? Not when that one view includes all the price patterns that markets can draw."
By encompassing virtually all market action and revealing how price moves in a highly predictable manner, the amazing tools Farley presents will give any investor a significant and consistent edge in the market. But learning to "master" these techniques takes discipline, research and education. As noted trader and "Stock Trading Wizard" author Tony Oz notes, if you get Alan Farley’s new book ... "You are seeking your trading education from one of the best instructors in the industry today."
So, get in on this red-hot trend before anyone else does - and learn to be a master swing trader - directly from a master.
