JAPANESE CANDLESTICK CHARTING TECHNIQUES, SECOND EDITION: A Contemporary Guide to the Ancient Investment Techniques of the Far East
Steve Nison
Completely informative and global in its outlook, Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques, Second Edition provides an in-depth explanation of candlestick plotting and analysis. This exciting book exposes the reader to the practical applications Steve Nison gained from years of study and research in this now popular and dynamic area. Today, almost all charting packages include candle charts.
This book contains hundreds of examples that show how candlestick techniques can be used in all of today’s markets. Through such patterns as the “dark-cloud cover” and “hanging-man lines,” traders will discover how candlestick techniques provide unique market insights. They will discover see how candles will provide early reversal signals, improve timing entering and exiting markets and can be merged with classic Western charting techniques.
This totally updated revision focuses on the needs of today’s traders and investors with:
* All new charts including more intra-day markets
* New candlestick charting techniques
* More focus on active trading for swing, on-line and day traders
* New Western techniques in combination with candles
* A greater spotlight on capital preservation.
Candle charts are older than bar charts, older than point-and-figure charts, but were completely unknown in the West – until Steve Nison introduced them through his articles, seminars, and his books.
