Trading Chaos

by Bill Williams

in Books / Market Psychology, Trading

Chaos theory now stands at the cutting edge of financial decision making methods. The product of years of scientific investigation into predictable phenomena, it has the potential to offer traders entirely new perspectives on the movements of markets - and less risky routes to greater, more consistent profitability. Unlike other books on the subject, Trading Chaos takes chaos analysis out of the realm of the abstract and makes complex concepts easy to understand and use. It offers you the most practical, comprehensive guide available to applying chaos theory to the real world of trading and investing.

In the breakthrough work, author Bill Williams gives you the benefit of his unique qualifications: 35 years of successful trading and a PhD in psychology.The instructional techniques used in Trading Chaos have been tested and refined in the workshops, seminars, and private tutoring sessions Dr. Williams has conducted in 12 different countries.

Designed for all traders - from beginner to experienced professional - Trading Chaos introduces you to the financial applications of chaos in five graduated stages, starting with a clear, nontechnical introduction (Level One: The Novice Trader) all the way to charge analysis, fractals, Elliott Wave and advanced nonlinear dynamics (Level Five: The Expert Trader).

Trading Chaos probes depths of human and economic behavior that other books do not even mention.

Overall, the book is thought-stimlulating.

Overall, the book is thought-stimlulating. I benefited from knowing the "scientific reasons" why the popular technical indicators do not work, although I never thought they will work in the past. I also benefited from learning to use MACD to clarify the confusion of Elliot wave counting. Yet the book could be better if the author rewrite it in more concise way. My last word, this book is a good-buy if you don't take it too serious about "Chaos".

A good book on Chaos Theory in trading

This book is part of Bill's Profitunity Trading (ie the Gator for those who know). First half of the book goes into the theory of chaos and how this is happening around you in everyday life. Then it gets interesting when he applies this theory to his trading and how you would use it. Can be complex; I had to condense it down myself onto pdf to help me understand it better. Non-the-less a very good read. He has also written a second verson of his trading technique.
