Product Description

About the Author

Michael J. Parsons started trading in 1987 and following a series of losses embarked on a journey of research that has led to the development of several trading techniques based on a unique approach. By utilizing aspects of wave science he first developed what would later be called Reversal Magic, a time based method for predicting reversals. The accuracy and success of this method was astounding, but even astounding methods need some form of money management, resulting in the birth of Channel Surfing. He has continued to develop an emerging science of technical analysis with a price targeting method called Balance Magic. Today he continues to write about and research new methods of trading and maintains a web site at www.tradingcafe.com. Additional information on the various publications he has written can be seen at www.reversalmagic.com.

Format: Paperback
Having already traded for many years I came across this book because it was included in an advanced course I had purchased from the author on a completely different topic.

Eventually I picked up the book and was impressed by the simple but extremly effective method used to evaluated and trade trends profitably.

If you are a trader who has some experience but a methodical approach has eluded you then this book will without doubt assist you to put a systematic approach in place.

For people just starting out in Technical Analysis this book is a must read, had I read this book many years ago it would have cut an incredible amount of time from my learning curve.

This book will teach you how to construct trend channels and more importantly when to enter the market with low risk and exit the market profitably.

Refreshingly for me anyway this book does not cover the use of other techical indicators or moving averages, if the methods taught in the book are employed then you do not really need them.

In general it's not bad book, for beginners it will probably have some eye openers. However it's not a pratical book, most of the book's "line drawing" is done in the middle of the chart (in hindsight). Which is nice but doesn't help you on the right side of the chart where you are really trading.

Format: Paperback
I found this book had lots of interesting ideas but the problem is that these ideas were not back tested and not presented in the light of what works. The author describes 5 entries and states that the most conservative (safe and sensible) entries are presented last. I think that anyone with a basic grasp of effective presentation would not do this.

I think that the riskier entries should have test figures to show how risky they might be so that the reader can steer clear, or the author can add some screening refinements so that the risk figures are less embarrassing to him. One of the riskier entries is one that he has coined the title "conservative" for. He tells us that other entries are more conservative than his "conservative" entry.

There are other confusing descriptions such as the naming of "inner" and "outer" channel lines which makes no sense to me. I can see upper and lower but what is inner and outer? The author points out that there is no inner or outer channel line with sideways price action- though there are upper and lower lines.

Instead of quantified descriptions of how, why and when to take many suggested actions we are told that experience will teach us. If I had that experience why would I be reading a "how to trade" book?

There is useful material- but this preliminary draft needs to be ripped apart, quantified and rewritten.
