Thanks Kay
If you really want to learn about Price Action then google Wyckoff. There is a lot of free information available on the net. Also, check out the VSA threads on here.

In addition, learn about Money Management, Risk and Position Sizing. Even if you develop a potentially profitable strategy, applying the wrong level of risk will result in you ending up in the poor house. These skills will be as valuable for you as learning about price action!!!!

As a side note, please don't take the easy route and spend too much time learning about indicators with the intention of solely using them in your trading. By all means, familiarise yourself with them (if they interest you) but understand that Price Action drives everything so understanding that will keep you ahead of most other new comers to trading.

All IMO,

A Fine is a Tax for doing something wrong. A Tax is a Fine for doing something right !!

If you want to learn price action, you need to get youself on a LIVE SIMULATOR.
Some firms will let you demo them for free. Speak to John head of Futex Investment and Trading Academy for help. He set up my buddy on their trading floor for a couple of days at no charge. Its worth a look

Try "Reading Price Charts Bar By Bar" by Al Brooks

It's a pretty good book IMO.

I would avoid the book by Bill Eykin.

It is highly overpriced and a much better name would have been, "Pivot level trading".

I would recommend you to buy the two books by Jim Dalton. If you have to choose one, pick the oldest, "Mind over markets".

This provides a great framework of how to really understand how the markets work (a two-way continuous market process).

Other than that, I guess you need screen time, but you also need theory. If you don`t know what to start looking for you might waste time just looking at the screen.

Good luck!

way to go, get rid of everything and start with just the basic concepts of trading, the absolute essentials, such as support and resistance, fibs, and classical chart patterns.

read books :

reminiscence of a stock operater
anything on jesse livermore
anything on Wyckoff
anything on tom williams re: VSA, his book is master the markets
anything on tape reading, re: tape reading and market tactics by humphrey b neill.

you will never go back to mathematical indicators after learning about price, volume and time analysis, you may find a whole new advantage trading this way.
Forex is risky and many investors cant trade for sh*t

forget fibs and any other indicators just read the chart - learn to see whats gonna happen we all know what has happened.

most newbies use ma, stochs etc (i done it) but clear your screen of all these lines and you will see a clearer picture of what is happening, not what has happened. Use different time frames to identify trend and entry/exit points etc, Price price price !!!
