Futures trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing one's financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

If you are looking for strategies for trading the financial markets this book is for you. If you are looking for special tactics for trading the financial markets this book is for you. Alan Northcott is a brilliant financial author with an in-depth knowledge of the financial markets. His latest book "Mastering Technical Analysis" is a superb example of his love and knowledge of everything financial. I first became aware of Alan's expertise of the financial markets by reading his." Newbies Guides To Financial Series", Forex Guide, Option Guide, Stocks Guide and Technical Analysis Guide. In his newest book "Mastering Technical Analysis" the author writes about the many aspects of analyzing the financial markets.

Trading the markets is complex, in this book the author describes various principles of technical analysis, tenets of trading, methods of charting, trend following concepts, reversal and continuation trend patterns, volume and price gaps, moving averages, oscillating and sentiment indicators and so much more. There are chapters on price patterns, risk management, Forex, Stocks, Options and the Futures markets. Overall it is a tremendous book on technical analysis and I am sure I will use it for years to come not only as a guide but as a reference source.

Perhaps you subscribe to a newsletter, or pick up tips from "experts"? And you trade your own account based on what they tell you??

Look, reputable newsletters don't allow their editors to take a position in their recommendations before publication -- so there's no conflict. So do you think that the writer cares as much about your money as you do?

And disreputable newsletters and tip sheets are used by shysters to inflate buying interest in a particular stock and send the price up, allowing the author to get a profit on shares he already owns. It's called pump and dump, and I expect you've experienced that at least once.

Either way, do you want to trust your trading account to what they say?

Or maybe you bought a black box program that shoots out recommendations -- good luck with that!

Wouldn't you like to know about all the other indicators you can use and their settings, so that you can be in control and make your own selections to suit your way of trading?

Mastering Technical Analysis reveals all the methods and techniques that are available to you to ramp up your trading performance. You'll find out


Mastering Technical Analysis is written so that trading novices can understand it, but will remain an important reference for even experienced traders.

Technical Analysis Explained Step by Step

By Steve Burns VINE VOICE on December 14, 2014

Format: Kindle Edition

It is amazing the depth of knowledge contained in the this book and the simplicity of the explanations that accompany complex topics. The book covers all the basics explaining how all markets function from forex, options, and the stock market to futures contracts. The book gives readers a basic explanation of what technical analysis is and how it applies to reading price action. The author explains all the basics of charting and the concept of trend identification on a chart. The book explains chart patterns and how they can be identified by using the history of price action to see them and the potential for future movements. I like the section on moving averages as he explains what they are and how to use multiple moving averages to trade with. The author takes the time to explain money management and the step by step process for building a trading system. I am very impressed with the authors depth and comprehensive coverage of all things that can lead to a traders success. Bravo! I highly recommend this book as a great place to start for the aspiring new trader to get a complete understanding of important market concepts that will lead to their success.
