To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a photocopy and not the original book. I either want an original book as was gifted to someone or else please take the book back as you cannot cheat people when it is about their hard earned money 😡
A textbook such as this ought to aid one's understanding of a subject, so it’s good that there are plenty of practical examples contained within this fantastic book that explain important points.
However, the aid to understanding is hampered when the illustrative example and the text that is referring to it are on different pages. Some of the concepts are complex and all are important – readers could lose a lot of money because of any misunderstanding – and the way the book is laid out doesn’t always help.
If the book ever receives another revision, its usefulness would be improved ten-fold if the explanatory test was much nearer the example it refers to. The explanatory text works really well and I got a lot out of this book – it’s really good and Steve Nison REALLY knows his stuff.
It’s about 70% of the truly awesome book it could be. And it's certainly the best you can buy on the subject.
I have only read the first 1/10th of this book and I immediately felt obliged to write a review. It is absolutely brilliant. I have read other books about trading i.e. one good trade, market wizards, the complete turtle trader etc. And none offer a detailed explanation of how the markets move and dive into the nitty gritty of actual trading techniques. Whilst this book doesn’t tell you how to trade per se (obviously have to develop a strategy yourself), it does provide you with the tools to do so. Definitely worth the buy, and so pleased I made this purchase as initiallly thought it’s expensive if it were to be rubbish! Worth the money and it’s a life-long book you’ll keep on your trading journey.
A must buy for anyone who want to learn to read properly candlestick charts. Really easy to read and full of informations at the same time, candlestick pattern are described such a way you truly understand them with full of real examples, that way one can see that often real chart can deviate from theory if appropriate conditions are met, wich lead to really understand the meaning of each pattern and their implication on the sentiment of the market.
Every trader should read this book. This is the bible of Modern Western Candlestick Charting and will give you an edge in the market if you apply what it teaches especially when used with the teachings of Wyckoff and volume spread analysis.
