"A book on Technical Analysis written for the Investor
Yes, it is possible to use technical analysis for investing, not just trading! Technical analysis has always been seen as a tool for short-term trading rather than investing. Through this book, the author will share with investors an original approach to technically define the trend for the various time frames - Daily, Weekly, Monthly and so on. The book will reveal the consistent relationship between the time frames. It explains which time frame dictates a market's behavior and shows how to invest better with the knowledge of the larger time frames.
The book's second innovation is to help investors integrate technical trend, timing and price indicators for market entry and exit. This approach "integrates" signals from various technical tools rather than rely on signals from a single indicator, whether it be timing or price for entry and exit. This integrated approach has been effectively used by the author for investing for many years.
• Time tested techniques to define a market's trend
• To integrate trend, timing and time indicators for optimal market entry and exit in trending and non-trending market environments
• About the two-way and three-way relationships between monthly, weekly and daily time frames
• How to invest better with the knowledge of the relationship of multiple time frames of markets
