Book Description

1 Nov 2001
A form of technical analysis, Japanese candlestick charts are a versatile tool that can be fused with any other technical tool, and will help improve any technician's market analysis.  They can be used for speculation and hedging, for futures, equities or anywhere technical analysis is applied. Seasoned technicians will discover how joining Japanese candlesticks with other technical tools can create a powerful synergy of techniques; amateurs will find out how effective candlestick charts are as a stand-alone charting method. In easy-to-understand language, this title delivers to the reader the author's years of study, research and practical experience in this increasingly popular and dynamic approach to market analysis.  The comprehensive coverage includes everything from the basics, with hundreds of examples showing how candlestick charting techniques can be used in almost any market.

By Russ
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been dabbling with Forex for about two years now.
I have paid out over 1000 in courses and bought fair too many 'quick fix' robots and systems that didn't work.
So, a while ago I took another course in Price Action. This was from a well known Forex personality ... but I just couldn't get to grips with it ..

Initially I was sceptical as I watched a few videos sent to me of Nison's teachings and they where from the 1990's ... so looked old and dated. He mainly talked about stocks, not FX which is what I am interested in. But the other reviews on Amazon convinced me to buy it.

The difference with Nison's book is the explanations. I do not know if it is just me, but I like a little knowledge behind them.
Whilst he doesn't tell you what to do, the explanation of why the candle forms the shape it does, provides you with the clues of when and how to trade.
It explains a bit about how the market behaves and why ... and you gain an insight into the psychology of the market. It is almost bread crumbs to lead you to the answer yourself, which develops a greater understanding and knowledge of what the 'answer' is.
This helped me to understand what other traders could be thinking when they take their trades and why that causes the markets to move.
Because I can now see the patterns, understand why they formed and what other traders may be thinking (and why)... I can use this to be better informed about the market direction.

Some other courses or explanations just tell you what to do after the pattern has formed ... this doesn't really help the intelligent trader! Monkey See Monkey do doesn't cut it in Forex for me.

I have taken this knowledge and applied it to Binary Options trading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book! 22 May 2010
Format:Hardcover
In my view as a professional Forex trader, this book is essential for anybody who is already trading but not using candlestick formations & a must for anybody thinking about starting to trade the markets.

By learning the candlestick formations alone described in this book, you will be able to identify set ups that put you on the right side of the market. These candlestick formations are very powerful when at a support or resistance level & studying this book will enable you to make a very profitable career in trading.
Highly recommended 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 30 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover
I found this book really helpful and well worth the money. Mr Nison writes very clarly. He anticipats the questions and problems that can arise. I always have lots of questions with trading books and often find it hard to pin down exactly what is meant. I did not have that problem here. The author writes as a trader and the explanations are aimed to improve the readers trading ability. As a new trader I am looking for clues to what is going on in the Forex market. This book gives a way of reading price charts so that I can see sentiment, direction and trading opportunities. It also discusses what other signs might help to confirm or question this understanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars candlestick application 2 Sep 2007
By Matthew
Format:Hardcover
Applying candlestick charting techniques is a MUST for any short term trader. This book provides a substantial amount of information about candlesticks (psychology), and has proven very helpful to me in making trade decisions and spotting imminent trend reversals. It really helps one understand the psychology behind the price action.
The contents are easy to read and understand ; you don't have to be a braniac. This candlestick book by Steve Nison, in comparison to other candlestick charting books, is a bit pricier. But, it's definitely worth it.
