Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques, Second Edition by Steve Nison

Recommended Posts

This book is the follow up to the review I posted here:

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f8/candlestick-course-steve-nison-1560.html

 

I would suggest this book (Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques, Second Edition) if you are interested in expanding your candlestick knowledge and want to learn more about the theories and explanations behind what the candles may be telling you. This book feels much more like a textbook; whereas the review listed above is more of a workbook feel.

 

In this book, Nison talks about daytrading (which is nice if you are a daytrader) and his view of convergence. Again, this book takes the workbook to the next level and he really dives into specifics. This is ideal for the trader that wants more and wants to understand why certain patterns are respected as often as they are.

 

If serious about trading candlesticks, I would highly recommend this book!

I thought I knew all I needed to know about candlesticks but then I read this book and realised there's a lot more to candlesticks than hammers and dojis. Well worth the read, especially for swing and position traders.

I couldn't have said it better notouch. Candles are very powerful when you understand fully how to use them and use them properly. Simply looking for shapes that you found on a free website won't cut it. ;)

 

Good luck and welcome to the world of candles!

Worst book about trading that I have seen so far, but that's only because I believe that candlesticks are completely arbitrary. If you do like them, the book at least "looks nice" with it's big letters and charts.

Thanks for the useless commentary.

 

It's true people - if you think candlestick analysis is 'arbitrary' - then guess what? A BOOK DEDICATED TO TRADING CANDLESTICKS MAY NOT BE YOUR CUP OF TEA...

 

Unbelievable...

 

:bang head:

 

Why bother spending money if you don't believe the methodology can work? That makes absolutely no sense ... you think candlestick analysis is no good, yet you spend the money to purchase a book on how to trade with candlesticks? Anyone else see the irony here?

 

:roll eyes:

 

As you can tell from my screen name, I am a Cleveland Browns fan. I bleed orange and brown through and through. Guess what? I don't think I would be impressed with a book, DVD, etc. about the NY Giants. Or the Dallas Cowboys. Would I ever spend a penny on these other teams? NO. Would it be a surprise if I did a review on the book or dvd was not impressed? NOPE. Why? I don't know... maybe b/c I have a slight bias?

 

:hmmmm:

How would one compare Nison's book with Bigalow's "High Profit Candlestick Patterns"? I like the latter very much, but I haven't read the former.

 

Hi Jessechan,

I have Nison's book as well as greg morris's book. What made u feel that bigelow's book was good? What did u garner from it? Thank you.

I just got the first edition of Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques. Do you think they changed the second edition a good amount or would you say the first edition is still relevant and worth the read?

 

Has it had a significant positive effect on your trading?

Hi,

 

Although the books do not teach you how to trade Japanese Candlestick patterns nor should they be used as such, they are an excellent reference (dictionary) of Japanese Candlestick patterns to help you with proper identification of candlestick patterns.

 

Thus, they had a positive effect on my trading because I was able to properly identify candlestick patterns regardless if the pattern was reliable or not. Simply, I no longer get the names of the candlestick patterns mixed up. Therefore, they are worth the read for those new to Japanese Candlestick patterns that do not want to make mistakes like calling a pattern an engulfing when in reality it is not engulfing.

    • WHAT ARE PENDING ORDERS AND THEIR TYPES? We just feel like explaining some basics terms of our trading signals to you, for the sake of those who may not understand. Instant Executions: These are market orders to be executed immediately at the current market price. They are simply “buy” or “sell” orders. Pending orders: A pending order is an order that is not yet a live trade. It is an order that you place because you do not want to buy or sell before the price of a financial instrument reaches a certain point. The order will be pending until the market reaches your preferred entry level. A pending order will be in place for as long as the price does not reach your entry level. You can set your pending order to expire on a certain date and time (i.e. if it does not reach your entry price before then), or you can close it manually. While a pending order remains in place, you can also adjust its stop and/or take profit level(s). Once price reaches your preferred entry level, the order will be triggered even if you’re completely offline, as your order is already in your broker’s server. There are several types of pending orders but we use 4 most popular for our signals here. They are: Buy Stop Sell Stop Buy Limit And Sell Limit Buy Stop: It is an order that enables you to buy at a higher price. For example, assuming Silver (XAGUSD) is currently at 18.685, you can set a Buy Stop order that will trigger a trade once the price reaches 19.000. Sell Stop: It is an order that enables you to sell at a lower price. Let’s use the same example of Silver, if at 18.685. You can set a Sell Stop order that will trigger a trade once the price reaches 18.215. Buy Limit: This is an order which makes you to buy at a lower price. If S&P 500 is trading at 3185.75, you may want to enable a Buy Limit order that will trigger a trade for you once that trading instrument plummets towards 3175.05. Sell Limit: This is an order that allows you to sell at a higher price. Let us say S&P 500 is trading at 3185.75, you can elect to enable a Sell Limit order that will trigger a trade for you once that S&P 500 rallies towards 3200.75. We hope this short article has thrown some light on your queries. You can message us if there are more questions. May your trades be green.   Source: https://learn2.trade
