    Profits in the Stock Market/With Charts

    By H.M Gartley



    http://www.amazon.com/Profits-Stock-.../dp/0939093073

    Description Product

    Harold McKinley Gartley had a stock market advisory service in the mid-1930s that had a large public following. This service was one of the first to apply "scientific" methods and research to resolution of the stock market problems: 1)what to buy; and 2) when to buy. This correspondence course is a summarization of Gartley's findings through 1936. The original course was issued looseleaf, in a green, three-ring binder. Lambert-Gann, Inc. has reissued this course in a more convenient book-format along with a separate package of oversized charts for easy reference against the textual explanations.

    Gartley covers, in great depth, the Dow theory, market movements, bar charting, figure charting, volume of trading, price formations, relative strength, moving averages, oscillators, and breadth measuremants. He presents copious references to indicate from where he got his material and numerous footnotes for text clarification or expansion. There is very little that one finds in the literature of technical analysis today that was not covered in Gartley's work. The book is well-researched and well-written. Unfortunately, Gartley's idea of "scientific" study is somewhat primitive as measured against today's standards. His approach was more rational-intuitive than statistical. (A good example of the methods he employed can be found in Gartley's "Stock Market Probability Tables" published by the author in 1940.)

    While I feel that this is the best and most complete work on technical analysis ever compiled, the lack of apparent progress over the past seventy years in the theoretical underpinnings of the technical analysis field seems to cast a shadow of doubt over its basic methodology. Personally, I have never found much use in the Dow Theory (subjective and late signals); price patterns (one tends to see what one wants to see); etc. The core of technical analysis can be summarized as, "A price trend will continue until it reverses." Problems arise in precisely defining what time period is relevant, what constitutes a valid trend inside the timeframe, and how a valid trend reversal is to be determined - all in such manner that result in an investment return greater than a buy-and-hold strategy. Current statistical evidence for the utility of technical analysis in generating profits in excess of buy-and-hold is not encouraging.

    If you are interested in technical analysis, you really need to become familiar Gartley's work and perspective. I have over 1,000 books in my library covering economics, finance, and investment, and am not aware of any better exposition of technical analysis than "Profits In The Stock Market."

    Harmonic Trading: v. 1: Profiting from the Natural Order of the Financial Markets

    By Scott Carney



    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Harmonic-Tra...7567753&sr=8-3


    Product Description

    Review
    "To be useful, a trading methodology must be understood. Simplicity is a bonus. Harmonic Trading: Profiting from the Natural Order of the Financial Markets, Vol. 1 by Scott M. Carney succeeds on both counts. This first volume of a promising series on harmonic trading will benefit traders seeking to improve their models."
    --George A. Schade Jr., CMT, Stock Futures and Options, January 2011.

    Product Description
    The Definitive Introduction to Harmonic Trading--By the Originator of This Approach, Scott Carney!

    “I have always found it fascinating that, in the field of securities analysis, so few important gains have been made in the body of knowledge since the 1920s and 1930s. There are a small number of modern-day pioneers among us who must be sought out. Scott Carney is one of those pioneers who has devoted himself to the task of uncovering the hidden logic in the movements of the markets. Harmonic Trading: Volume 1 provides a system of critical decision-making based on the natural order of life, which allows investors to replace emotions and guesswork with logic and symmetry so necessary to becoming a successful investor.”
    -- PAUL DESMOND, President of Lowry Research Corporation

    “I am well aware of the author’s dedication and degree of excellence in his work. Scott has not only thoroughly researched and covered the subject well, he has taken that most important step of showing you how to use these tools and apply them to your trading and investing. I currently oversee the management of more than $3 billion in assets using a technical model. I know firsthand that a trading methodology that does not have buy, sell, and trade-up rules will never be successful. Every effort needs to be made to make the process free of subjectivity. Harmonic Trading will help you organize your trading and keep you in sync with the markets. No one has done this better than Scott.”
    --GREG MORRIS, Chief Technical Analyst, Stadion Money Management, and author of Candlestick Charting Explained and The Complete Guide to Market Breadth Indicators

    Harmonic Trading creator Scott Carney unveils the entire methodology to turn patterns into profits. These strategies consistently identify the price levels and market turning points that reveal the natural order within the chaos of the financial markets. Analogous to the predictable behavior of many of life’s natural processes, Harmonic Trading examines similar relationships within the financial markets to define profitable opportunities in an unprecedented manner. Carney introduces new discoveries such as the Bat pattern, Alternate AB=CD structures, the 0.886 retracement, and more. These strategies are entirely new to the trading community, and they represent a profound advancement beyond all other Fibonacci methodologies!

    After you’ve discovered how to identify harmonic patterns, Carney presents a complete methodology for applying them in trade execution and handling them throughout the entire trade management process. From savage bear to rampaging bull, Harmonic Trading can be employed in all markets--equities, currencies, commodities, and foreign markets--for both short- and long-term timeframes.


    Harmonic Trading: v. 2: Advanced Strategies for Profiting from the Natural Order of the Financial Markets

    By Scott Carney



    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Harmonic-Tra...ref=pd_sim_b_4



    Product Description



    “Perhaps the greatest shortcoming of the field of Technical Analysis is the high degree of subjectivity in price pattern interpretation. In Harmonic Trading: Volume 2, highly respected technical analyst Scott Carney reduces subjectivity to a minimum with his Fibonacci-based price measurement techniques and traditional technical analysis methods. Precise price-pattern examples presented in the book enable the novice as well as the advanced trader to incorporate the Harmonic Trading methodology into a workable and profitable trading system. Harmonic Trading: Volume 2 will undoubtedly prove to be a vital part of any technical trader’s toolkit.” --

    “I have devoted my life to the study and development of Harmonic Technical Analysis. There are only a few names in this field whose contributions I find truly inspiring. Scott’s work is at the top of that ‘short list,’ and Harmonic Trading: Volume 2 is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of his achievements. It redefines the concept of a ‘must read.’” --JIM KANE, Founder of Kane Trading and author of nine trading books, including Median Line and Fibonacci Synergy

    “It is rare that one finds an author who has so carefully compiled his research and even more carefully presented his findings as Scott Carney has in Harmonic Trading: Volume 2. Scott presents price-pattern examples and explanations of patterns in such a way that investors, no matter what their level of experience, will find the work of great value in expanding their understanding of the way markets move and how to trade them. Scott’s work should definitely be a prominent part of every investor’s library.” --PETER B. MAUTHE, President, Rhoads Lucca Capital Management, Inc.

    “This book gave me two new tools to start experimenting with: the 1.13 at market extremes and the RSI BAMM.” --VERONIQUE LASHINSKI, CMT, Board Member of the International Federation of Technical Analysts (IFTA) and former Vice President of the American Association of Professional Technical Analysts (AAPTA)

    Now, in Harmonic Trading: Volume 2, Carney takes a quantum leap forward, introducing new strategies, patterns, and methods that make Harmonic Trading an even more powerful tool for trading the financial markets. For the first time, he reveals how to utilize harmonic impulse waves and introduces measurement techniques that identify market turning points even more accurately. Finally, he demonstrates how to integrate the Relative Strength Indicator (RSI) with advanced Harmonic Trading techniques to separate minor “reactive” moves from major opportunities.

    Trade What You See: How to Profit from Pattern Recognition

    By Larry Pasavento




    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trade-What-Y...ref=pd_sim_b_2

    Product Description
    Review
    "…should prove valuable to those already practicing technical analysis and who want to take their trading to the next level." (Investors Chronicle, Friday 28th March 2008)

    Product Description

    Trading the financial markets is extremely difficult, but with the right approach, traders can achieve success. Nobody knows this better than authors Larry Pesavento and Leslie Jouflas, both traders and educators of traders, who have consistently used pattern recognition to capture profits from the markets. In Trade What You See, Pesavento and Jouflas show traders how to identify patterns as they are developing and exactly where to place entry and exit orders. While some patterns derive from the techniques of Wall Street’s earliest traders and other patterns reflect Pesavento’s emphasis on the geometry of market movements and Fibonacci numbers.. Filled with hard–won knowledge gained through years of market experience, Trade What You Seeoutlines both a practical and sophisticated approach to trading that will be of interest to both novice and seasoned traders alike.



    Profitable Patterns for Stock Trading

    By Larry Pasavento




    https://www.traderspress.com/detail.php?PKey=97

    Description:

    Over the past 20 years the use and misuse of the Fibonacci Summation series has proliferated to the point that commentators on the nation's TV business channels are now resident experts. I lay no claim to being an expert. I have, however, studied the subject of Fibonacci numbers extensively, especially how it relates to trading. I have always taken the pragmatic position that if I could not use what I was studying to help in trading, then I was not interested in pursuing it any further. If this material can stimulate your interest in the subject, then introducing you to the subject will have been worthwhile...
    The pattern recognition methodology illustrated in the text will be of interest to anyone that has ever traded using technical charts. I can say with confidence that there are very few who have researched patterns to the extent I have. Some of the references date back to the early 1900s. Each of these patterns is based on ratio and proportion. A technical chart is nothing more than a road map with a price and time axis. These patterns repeat with a great deal of regularity. Some of my best students have been airline pilots. They seem to approach trading like they approach flying, following a flight plan. The similarities to trading are numerous.
    Finally, one of my goals in writing this book is to expose you to the subject of ancient geometry. Fibonacci numbers are an integral part of the numbers that make up the subject of their origin in the cosmos. I will not spend a significant amount of time relating my experiences in astro-harmonics research. The subject is too vast for me to consider here. More importantly, it is not necessary for profitable trading.

    Fibonacci Ratios with Pattern Recognition

    By Larry Pasavento



    http://www.amazon.com/Fibonacci-Rati...adeforexhar-20

    Product description
    Quoted from Robert Miner's Dynamic Trading Analysis Report, Pesavento has been trading for 30 years. Today, he is primarily a day trader. His new book is well focused and organized. The bulk of the book describes a limited number of high probability patterns which coincide with clusters of Fib price projections that provide the short-term trader with high probability and low capital exposure trade set-ups. These trade set-ups are equally valuable for intermediate term traders as well. The short-term set-ups can also be used to enter for an intermediate term position.

    Quote from 1997 Supertrader's Almanac, Larry Pesavento presents a very persuasive argument that such patterns not only exist, but that the patterns can be profitably employed when they exhibit both the correct form and the form is in the correct proportions.

    Applying Elliott Wave Theory Profitably


    By Tony Plummer




    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Applying-Ell...ef=pd_sim_b_12

    Product Description

    Learn how to forecast the market with Elliott Wave Theory
    In Applying Elliott Wave Theory Profitably author Steven Poser shows readers how to trade using Elliott Wave Theory–a powerful technical analysis tool used to forecast the stock market–through easy–to–follow trading strategies, while offering clear explanations on how to interpret this method′s numerous patterns. Step–by–step guidance breaks down the Elliott Wave Theory and provides strategies that a trader can put into action along with a complete explanation of how and why the Elliott Wave Theory works. Applying Elliott Wave Theory Profitably shows readers where to look for external clues, and how to use these to improve their trading performance.
    Steven W. Poser (Upper Saddle River, NJ) is President and founder of Poser Global Market Strategies Inc., an international stock, bond, and currency markets trading advisory firm. Mr. Poser publishes a daily newsletter that covers these markets from a technical and fundamental perspective. He holds a post–MBA degree in finance, as well as an MBA in economics and a BA in mathematics and computer science.
    From the Inside Flap
    During the late 1920s, Ralph Nelson Elliott theorized that stock markets do not behave in a random, chaotic manner, but rather that they move in repetitive cycles, which reflect the actions and emotions of humans caused by exterior influences or mass psychology. Elliott believed that the ebb and flow of mass psychology reveals itself in the same repetitive patterns––illustrated by recognizable "waves." It was at this point that Elliott Wave theory was born.
    Since its discovery, numerous books have tried to capture the essence of this revolutionary forecasting method, but they either made Elliott more complicated than it needed to be, or, in an effort to overcome the perceived complexity of analysis using Elliott, oversimplified the process.
    In Applying Elliott Wave Theory Profitably, author and Elliott Wave expert Steven Poser makes sense of this proven trading strategy and gives you the most well–rounded and straightforward lesson on how to make money using Elliott Wave theory. Drawing from his many years of Elliott Wave experience, Poser:
    • Reviews how and why technical analysis works, and shows you where the Elliott Wave theory fits into that picture
    • Reveals each of the basic and advanced patterns that the market might trace out and discusses the market conditions that typically produce these patterns
    • Outlines how to build an efficient trading plan
    • Illustrates how to continuously update your plan in real time as the market provides you with further information by way of a constant stream of prices, volume, and news
    • Examines how to review the market from multiple time frames, so you know what degree of price retracements to expect, as well as what your risks and rewards may be
    Filled with in–depth insights, expert advice, and a set of sample trading plans, this book will take you step by step through the process of understanding how and why Elliott Wave theory works––as well as show you when and where you are most likely to profitably apply Elliott Wave to improve your trading. You don’t need to trade every day to gain substantial profits, but when it is time to trade, using Elliott Wave theory can make all the difference.

    Geometry of Markets

    By Bryce Gilmore

    Books on the Gartley pattern-41rz2rgrv8l._sl500_aa300_.jpg

    Amazon.com: Geometry of Markets (9780934380553): Bryce Gilmore: Books


    Some review:

    "This was my first book about Geometry of Markets. And a good first one indeed it is!

    You'll find here some of the basic stuff that you should learn about arithmetic, geometric and harmonic ratios. Although the book is centered on Gilmore's own dated DOS software, you can still get away with something useful that you can apply to your first studies of the markets using this kind of principles. Won't make you a better trader, but will probably sparkle some new insights about the way the markets move - hence the 4 stars.

    One of the best examples on mirroring techniques i have ever seen on a book.

    Not pure Gann stuff applied, but the principles are valid for some further studying... recommended! "

    "Presents a load of information on Gann angles, fans, cycles, Elliott Wave, Fib retracements and projections. While most of this material would have merit to those knowledgable in these methods, I found the explanations too vague to be useful. If you are interested in these types of trading methods, there are definitely better books. "

    Books on the Gartley pattern-bk1.jpg Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts

    Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts is designed to help satisfy Critical Element number one of the 'Plan for a Trade', the Potential Trade Area (PTA). This book focuses on the use of Fibonacci numbers for determining potential areas of support and resistance, where trades may be considered, using unique concepts developed at Kane Trading. Multiple new Fibonacci numbers are derived (including the now world-famous .886, from the person who quantified the number for the first time), and their use is detailed. The book goes on to develop the concept and technique of Fibonacci groupings, tight areas where multiple Fibonacci numbers come together to form a potential trade area. The concepts with regard to groupings are totally different than the 'standard' use of the basic Fibonacci numbers coming together in a 'wide' area, as presented by other authors. The techniques described in this book are based on totally new and unique ideas with regard to 'harmonicity' and the use and development of 'layered support or resistance'. The latter term is not related in any way to the technique some authors present about trading a second, 'wide' grouping if the first one fails. The layered support or resistance foundation, as well as the 'harmonicity' concepts, as defined in the Kane Trading methodology, are totally unique and were developed here at Kane Trading. In fact, the processes in this book can't even be done without the multiple new Fibonacci-derived numbers that were developed for the first time anywhere here at Kane Trading. The entire process is laid out in step-by-step detail, with multiple examples. There is also a brief chapter on a possible relationship between some Gann numbers and Fibonacci numbers, as well as a very intriguing introductory chapter on Fibonacci time relationships.

    Books on the Gartley pattern-bk2.jpg Entry Techniques


    Entry Techniques is designed to help satisfy Critical Element number two of the 'Plan for a Trade', the entry technique. Once a potential trade area is determined, the next step is to determine an entry technique. A key aspect of the Kane Trading methodology is the use of various timeframes, based on the 'three timeframe' philosophy (entry timeframe, traded timeframe, and 'context' timeframe), and all this is done without 'indicators'. This use of various timeframes is one of the many ways that the material in this book differs from the 'standard' approach to entry techniques that is available from most sources. The methods for choosing the appropriate timeframe for applying the technique(s) are a critical aspect of the entire process. It's not just the use of an entry technique that is emphasized; it's the knowledge of what timeframe to apply the technique on that is so important to the understanding of this part of the Kane Trading methodology. There is a strong emphasis on timeframes throughout this book, with detailed discussion on how to choose the entry timeframe. Entry Techniques provides a vast assortment of potential entry triggers, and discussion on ways to vary them. Another large part of the Kane Trading philosophy is to encourage traders to test and experiment with techniques, and find what works for them and their particular 'Trading Plan'. This book outlines eight distinct techniques, with multiple variations, in order to provide a multiplicity of choices for the trader. The last chapter is based on a unique combination of entry triggers and timeframes developed at here at Kane Trading, and is entitled 'A Cool Trick'.

    Books on the Gartley pattern-bk3.jpg Trading ABCD Patterns


    Trading ABCD Patterns is designed to help satisfy Critical Element number one of the 'Plan for a Trade', the Potential Trade Area (PTA). This book takes a unique look at the ABCD pattern, adding many new twists and variations. This is a key pattern used at Kane Trading, and it is perhaps the most overlooked Fibonacci-related pattern out there. Many people are familiar with the 5-point pattern, but they don't realize the pattern is first and foremost built around an ABCD pattern. Understanding this relationship is key to advancing the trader's skill with respect to 5-point patterns. The approach taken in this book is unlike anything presented in other sources, and takes the use of the pattern up to a new level. The use of 'context' for filtering ABCD pattern trades was developed here at Kane Trading, as outlined in Multiple Timeframes and 'Context', and is clearly laid out in this book, as well as similar 'context' discussion with respect to 5-point patterns. The book uses many of the techniques developed in Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts, as well as integrating the new Fibonacci numbers from that book into the ABCD pattern. There is a well-detailed, step-by-step outline on how to combine the groupings techniques with various pattern criteria, to qualify potential trades. The ABCD patterns are broken down into four categories, with discussion on trading aspects of each type. The final chapter is a stimulating look at Fibonacci time relationships in the patterns, designed to provide some serious food for thought for the reader.

    Book Level: Intermediate to advanced
    160 pages (including front matter), 124 charts, 2 diagrams, 8.5" by 11", coil bound

    Prerequisite: Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts, or equivalent. Not mandatory, but strongly suggested. Trading ABCD Patterns makes use of internal and external retracements, projections and expansions, as well as time projections, and internal and external time retracements. Trading ABCD Patterns is presented in a very detailed, step-by-step fashion, so advanced readers may be able to follow along without the prerequisite, but to gain the most out of the book, readers should be familiar with the material in Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts.



    Books on the Gartley pattern-bk4.jpg Trailing Stops


    Trailing Stops is designed to help satisfy part of Critical Element number four of the 'Plan for a Trade', trade management. Trailing Stops is an intensive look at techniques for attempting to maximize profits on trend trades that are moving in the trader's favor. By trailing a stop on all or part of a trade, the trader can allow the market to run, hence letting the market action, itself, decide when the move is over. This technique is very dynamic, adjusting to the price action in the trading vehicle, as opposed to many of the 'static' techniques so commonly used. There are nine distinct techniques with multiple variations presented, again with the emphasis on encouraging traders to experiment and decide on what may be of use to them, and their particular 'Trading Plan'. The last chapter combines various techniques and discusses scaled exit strategies.

    Books on the Gartley pattern-bk5.jpg Multiple Timeframes and 'Context'



    Multiple Timeframes and 'Context' is the first book written at Kane Trading entirely at the request of the readers. This book covers the unique Kane Trading perspective on use of multiple timeframes in trading, as well as the use of 'context' on all trades. The center-point of the methodology is what is termed the 'traded timeframe'. This is the central timeframe from which all subsequent analysis radiates. The additional timeframes are a lower entry timeframe, and one or more higher 'context' timeframe(s). It is in the 'context' area that the book really begins to present vastly new, unique and iconoclastic ideas. This material was derived from years of research at Kane Trading, taking a realistic look at the weak areas in the accepted methods of pattern trading, and seeking to improved the techniques. This book presents new, revolutionary concepts with respect to pattern trading and the use of 'context' as part of the potential trade screening process. Even the multiple timeframe concepts are completely unique, and unlike anything that is currently available. For example, the multiple timeframe techniques used at Kane Trading are not based on any indicators. They are price driven, with pattern and Fibonacci techniques incorporated into the process. This book takes pattern trading, whether they are 5-point patterns or simply ABCD patterns, to the next level. At Kane Trading this is critical material that is used to form the basis of every potential trade setup that is considered. It should be noted that the techniques presented are applicable to any trading methodology, though, even if it is not pattern or Fibonacci based. Be forewarned: this material will go against many of your pre-conceived notions, and many of the ideas that you have been taught about pattern trading.

    Book Level: Advanced
    222 pages (including front matter), 133 charts, 8.5" by 11", coil bound

    Prerequisites: Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts, Entry Techniques, Trading ABCD Patterns, and Trailing Stops.To fully understand the concepts outlined in this book the reader should be fully versed in 5-point pattern structure and labeling, as well as in the application and trading of these patterns. The listed books are highly recommended before reading Multiple Timeframes and 'Context', although an experienced pattern trader would likely be able to grasp a fair amount of the material without the prerequisites. This book is very specific to the Kane Trading techniques developed in the prerequisites.

    Attachment 469 Trade Management


    Trade Management is designed to help satisfy Critical Elements number three and four of the 'Plan for a Trade', trade size and trade management. This book is very comprehensive, extending to aspects outside of the 'Plan for a Trade' (also called 'The Critical Elements of a Trade'), and includes many aspects that fit into the master 'Trading Plan'. Topics include discussion on percentage of capital risked per trade, maximum percentage of total capital per trade, reward/risk, winning percentages, expected value, correlation risk in trades, calculating trade size, management aspects of different trading vehicles, protective stop losses and variations on setting them, initial movement of stop losses, moving of stop losses as a trade progresses, the 'other side' to commonly taught management plans, and management of advanced winning trades (including detailed discussion on scaled exits). This book covers a large group of management topics, covering areas from before the trade starts until after the trade is closed. By comparison, Trailing Stops specifically covers one aspect of trade management, using one broad concept (although it has many unrelated variations within that one concept), and that is trailing a stop on a winning trend trade. That book is not designed to be a comprehensive guide to trade management; it is designed to be a comprehensive guide to Trailing Stops. Trade Management will not cover the trailing stops concept in the detail that the book Trailing Stops does. These two books are designed to complement each other. Of all the topics in Trade Management, I felt that trailing stops required its own book, so the level of detail needed on that topic could be put forth. Trade Management does, however, introduce the latest, most favored trailing stop/scaled exits technique developed and used at Kane Trading. The presentation of this new technique in Trade Management is the first time that this method has been presented anywhere.

    Book Level: Intermediate to advanced. This book is also advised for beginners, too, so they can be exposed to these concepts right from the start. If your level is beginner, though, understand that many of the concepts may be difficult to fully grasp until you gain a higher degree of expertise and experience.
    244 pages (including front matter), 130 charts, 2 graphs, 8.5" by 11", coil bound

    Prerequisites: Although none are specifically required, to get the most out of Trade Management it is strongly suggested that the reader be familiar with the material in the following books: Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts, Entry Techniques, Trading ABCD Patterns, Trailing Stops, and Multiple Timeframes and 'Context'. The reader should also be versed in 5-point and ABCD pattern structure and labeling, as well as in the application and trading of these patterns, but again, this is not a necessity. The book was written so that the material could be adapted to any style and any 'Trading Plan'.



    Attachment 470 A Totally New 5-Point Pattern

    A Totally New 5-Point Pattern is designed to help satisfy Critical Element number one of the 'Plan for a Trade', the potential trade area (PTA). This book is far more than just a book with a new 5-point pattern, though. The book introduces two brand new, never before released or discussed Fibonacci-derived numbers. These are the numbers, mentioned in the free article Some discussion about Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts and the Kane Trading methodology, that Jim worked on for four years. They are the basis for the new pattern, but also have a far-ranging use beyond the pattern. The book integrates the numbers into the Kane Trading methodology, as laid out in the other books, and shows how critical they are to the process. The book makes a case for why the two non-Fibonacci-derived numbers that so many use are not valid harmonic numbers at all, and that these new numbers are the true harmonic numbers for that area. The book also delves very deeply into the formerly proprietary concepts at Kane Trading of 'harmonicity' and 'layered support and resistance'. These are concepts that are the fundamental basis for the material in Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts, but, as the free article mentioned above explains, perhaps weren't explained all that well in that book. The issue is rectified in this book, in great detail. There is also some additional work on the numbers laid out in Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts, plus derivations of three numbers that were left out of that book. This is not just mathematics here for the sake of 'fun with numbers'; this is material that has been requested, time and again, since Advanced Fibonacci Trading Concepts was released. It is material that has practical significance to any Fibonacci-based 'Trading Plan', and the reasoning behind that is explained in very clear detail. The book then goes on to cover many new pattern concepts that have never been discussed before, from any source. There is a new idea called the 'Pattern Stretch' concept, which greatly aids in the visualization and understanding of how the patterns relate to each other. The book explores many new mathematical and geometric aspects of the 5-point pattern structure, and relates these aspects to actual trading. Discoveries and conclusions of this work are summarized in tables, designed for ease of use in applying the material to actual pattern setup construction. The book also includes a chapter that continues on with the work laid out in Multiple Timeframes and 'Context', in the chapter entitled 'Pattern Structure'. All the latest information developed at Kane Trading with regard to 5-point patterns, and trading them, has been put into this chapter. And like the entire book, it puts the emphasis on the patterns in the 'context' of using them for real trading. All the latest ideas about the patterns, their structure, their tendencies in real trading situations, and so on, are included. In the opinion of the author, this book is the most advanced, cutting edge, innovative, and yet still practical book out there right now on the topic of advancing a Fibonacci-based 'Trading Plan'.
