A unique new approach to trading based on financial analysis and financial astrology

Timing Solutions for Swing Traders: Successful Trading Using Technical Analysis and Financial Astrology is a remarkable new book that introduces a revolutionary approach to non-day trading that combines the four basic dimensions of trend analysis—price patterns, volume, price momentum, and price moving averages—with a little financial astrology. Focusing on the essentials of technical analysis, the book is filled with examples of reliable indicators and formulas that traders can use to help develop their own styles of trading, specially tailored to their individual needs and interests.

Filled with real-life market examples to help you understand how to use the matrix of moving averages, how to apply different sets of time frame moving averages to form a trading decision, and how to determine the intermediate state of the market using the Queuing Theory (QMAC)—which dissects the interplay of long-term moving averages and helps anticipate major support and resistance levels—this book is packed with the information you need to maximize your trading potential.

  • A dedicated trading guide for non-day traders
  • Incorporates examples and formulas to bring ideas to life
  • Presents an innovative new approach to trading that draws on the four core dimensions—price patterns, volume, price momentum, and price moving averages—for analyzing trends

Innovative and practical, Timing Solutions for Swing Traders is a hands-on guide to applying a remarkable new approach to trading.
