Description

A comprehensive book filled with technical analysis tools and strategies for the advanced ETF trader

Advanced Technical Analysis of ETFs is an important resource for sophisticated ETF traders that contains a wealth of expanded strategies for technical trade setups and includes the author's best real trade examples (both winning and losing), as well as additional user-friendly technical indicators. Step by step this book offers you a how-to guide for profiting from ETFs through a unique strategy of technical analysis that was outlined in Wagner's previous book and summarized in the introduction. The strategy is designed to compare relative strength using a top-down approach.

In this book, Wagner focuses on new indicators not previously covered including candlesticks (Doji, Hammers, Hanging Man), Fibonacci, and others. He also explores essential new developments on moving average divergence/convergence (MACD), and institutional trading impact and how these elements now exert influence on the market.

  • A vital resource written for ETF traders who are ready for the next level of sophistication
  • Contains the author's signature ""my best and worst trades"" with real examples from his daily trading at a hedge fund
  • Includes case studies that focus on the technical indicators outlined in the book
  • Explores the role of market psychology for technical analysis traders and his trademark slogan, ""Trade what you see, not what you think""

Written in a straightforward and accessible style, this book will help sophisticated traders make the most of today's ETFs.
