Buy one but only one

what is it?
A basic introduction to candlestick charting techniques.

The Good Bits:
The book starts from very simple one candle formations, and then combines these to two and three candle formations. At each stage in the book, there are exercises for the reader to coplete in order to cement the ideas within the most recent chapter. Many people use candlesticks, but only by completing a course such as this - combined with screen time - will one really understand the market psychology behind the highs and the lows.

The Bad Bits:
Steve Nison has basically written the same book three times. This, japanese Candlestick Charting techniques, and Beyond Candlestick Charting are all basically singing from the same gymn sheet. I have had a conversation with Mr. Nison about his candlestick books... he informed me that he now referrs to candlesticks as "Nison candles", and duly offered me a place on his new course.

Review:
Buy this one or japanese Candlestick charting techniques. They do offer a very good interpretation of the market psychology behind the pricre action that each candle represents. But only buy one, Steve Nison sold out.
