Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading (1118445600) cover image

The Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading is an in-depth, easy-to-use guide to trading the financial markets with the Elliott Wave Principle.

In many ways this book picks up where Frost & Prechter's classic Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior left off, which makes it "required reading" if you want to build a solid foundation in Elliott wave analysis. Co-authored by two of Elliott Wave International's most trusted analysts -- Wayne Gorman and Jeffrey Kennedy -- their trading insights offer a perfect blend of traditional textbook and real-world application.

Join Kennedy and Gorman as they provide step-by-step instruction in how to trade with Elliott. They include scores of real market charts that depict the Elliott wave patterns, which will help you measure the strength of trends, forecast market turning points, plus identify trading opportunities. What's more, this illustrated guide also explains how to use supporting technical indicators that can build confidence in your Elliott wave analysis.

Gorman and Kennedy know that "simple" does not mean "easy." Their combined expertise will help you build confidence in your analysis, create an effective trading plan, and better manage your trades. Whether your trading style is conservative or aggressive, their charts and techniques can help identify high-confidence opportunities.

Each chapter includes key points & smart investor tips, such as how to "Prepare yourself to take advantage of opportunities even when your preferred count does not materialize," and "Let the market commit to you before you commit to the market."

Elliott wave analysis recognizes that in financial markets, mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence. Use this book to recognize those wave patterns, and anticipate market moves that most traders never see coming.

The Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading is the new criterion for any serious technical trader.

Divided into three comprehensive parts, the Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Tradingopens with an informative introduction to the anatomy of Elliott wave trading.

It also presents hypothetical setups that you might encounter in your own market experience and shows how to handle them. Part Three rounds out this detailed discussion by going beyond the basics to address how you can effectively apply other technical indicators to your trading and how you can use Elliott wave analysis and option strategies to form a powerful trading combination.
