Everything a trader needs to know to develop a successful system Technical analysis--the reading of price and volume charts to identify trading opportunities--has long been a staple in the trader's toolkit. Well before computers took much of the labor out of technical analysis, traders have examined trends, filters, patterns, and especially indicators to help them identify when to get in and out of trades for maximum profit. Now, a highly experienced analyst divulges his proven techniques for identifying the major trend, determining the "trend within the trend," finding the optimal entry, and then choosing the right time to get out. He shows traders how to most effectively use multiple indicators and know what they are really telling about the markets. While his techniques can be used without the aid of computers, he explains how readers can automate their systems using commercially available software. John F.
