CHARTING... reading the
footprints in the sand using candlestick charts.
You can't fake this, either you know how to
read chart patterns and indicators or you don't. That's
what coaching is all about, helping you gain confidence
so that at least you know you're not guessing.
spend a lot
of frustrating time learning chart reading. What,
, is important to
look for, avoid, and watch? The problem with trying to
learn chart reading just from books, or websites is that
you can't get the feel for the morphing action
that charts produce as time passes and new patterns
You make trading decisions from the right edge of
the chart, not somewhere in the past where you've
identified a pattern.
Reading candlestick charts and proper
interpretation is the life blood of any trader.
You can't fake it and you can't guess at it.
Stock market charts are dynamic, fluid, morphing,
living things that upon observation one can "see" the
human behavior therein.
Books, CDs, videos can't teach you tható a trading
coach will. What good is seeing a pattern
after it has developed? Anyone can see them in past.
A trader needs to see it as it happens and
usually before it happens.
Being able to see a pattern
in the past is as useless as a bike without wheels.
Why? Because you make decisions on the right edge of the
chart while a pattern forms.
You need a coach!
Know How, Why, and When To Blend a Chart? Buy the
pullback? Short the rally? Play the earnings? When is a
bullish chart bearish and a bearish chart bullish? Do
you understand 3-D charting? When are certain indicators
more useful than others?
I know that most men would prefer having a root canal without
Novocain than stop and ask for directions. After all, if there's
gas in the tank, a man is never lost. Women know to stop and ask
for directions. However, in the stock market the man's logic can
be fatal to his trading. Wouldn't it make more sense to use a map,
which traders call charts, to "see" where the sentiment is regarding the
stock price going forward in time?
Traders have memories about price action (I know
I do) and those memories are forever printed in the form of a chart
detailing where traders bought and sold out of
fear and greed. Some of those memories are delightful (past
profit at that price level) and some are painful (losses when bought at
that level). Is it any wonder a major aspect of chart reading has
to do with support and resistance levels? Traders learn to trust their
charts because, in the end, the patterns are more right than wrong thus
putting some of the odds in your favor. The charts are telling us
fear and greed is located. Do
you think that might be helpful? Bet on it!!

Indicators are you life
blood, your oxygen as a short-term trader. You can't
fake it because what you don't see in the charts puts
you at a disadvantage if other traders do see something
setting up. If you fall for what you see, meaning taking
the trade, while ignoring what you can't see due to
lack of knowledge... guess which side of that trade
