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.

    • There is no point asking this question as we know women have now entered most of the fields of business. You might remember this ball busting study which found that women make better investors than men, because they are more risk-averse. 
    • The stock market going up is not a reflection of a healthy economy as created by rationally minded entrepreneurs and investors; it’s going up because the people who have the ability to make it go up also happen to be the ones who’ll benefit from it the most.
    • Landora This thread illustrates a couple of things that humblepieasant hopefully/probably learned 1 day/short term trading is for the few, not the many.  Finding systems that optimize win rate with risks is formidable.  Finding such systems that are also self compatible is exceedingly rare. 2 posting is expensive.  ie It really doesn’t pay short term or long term to give if you don’t got... 3 the need for the kind of “accountability”hp mentioned above is - in a word - transitional.  ie Accountability needs to be turned and referenced inward instead of spread outward... 4 hp would have been much better off trading “a small "live" account through the end of January, then a small "practice account" account beginning February, ... then back live. ... 1 Don’t just look for an edge.  Look for an edge that is also true to your nature.  If an edge is not true to your nature, you will still never be able to make it work consistently. 2 Post what you are learning and see. 3 Post what you are trading and see. 4 See.  ... maybe decades later...

    • Date : 22nd May 2020.EURUSD – Rejection, Retrace, Sell-Off.EURUSD, H1EURUSD has drifted down to a fresh four-day low at 1.0886, driven lower by a broad haven-bid for Dollars as Hong Kong re-emerges as a flash point in US-China, and West-China, relations. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) rose to a three-day high at 99.62, extending the rebound from the 18-day low seen on Wednesday at 99.01. EURUSD continues to trade in a broad consolidation range near the halfway mark of the volatile range that was seen during the height of the global market panic in March, which was marked by 1.0637 on the downside and 1.1494 on the upside. Expectations are for the pair to lack sustained directional bias for now, though political tensions among Eurozone members, coupled with the dollar’s role as a haven, suggest the risks are to the downside, as demonstrated in the H1 chart. Below we can see that there was a rejection of 1.1000 yesterday (1) and a retrace of the initial fall to the 50-hour moving average (2), followed by the sell-off during the Asian and European sessions today (3).There is little divergence in central bank policy currently, with both the ECB and the Fed pursuing aggressively accommodative policy, with both Europe and the US facing significant economic headwinds from virus-containing lockdown measures. Both are amid the early stages of reopening from lockdowns.Always trade with strict risk management.
