I met Anna at a forex expo a few years back and we talked about relative strength .....she’s pretty switched on and her husband is a smart cookie as well .....at the time they were pushing an indicator called the Hawkeye that integrates volume into the mix ....have you used it ?Greetings fellow traders.
I have been a long term investor in the UK markets for over 12 years with moderate success.
Over that period I have read dozens of books, each one giving me a little bit more knowledge and accuracy with my investing, however my time has turned to a more shorter timeframe with trading as well.
Since lockdown I read 2 of the most important books so far. 'Reminiscence of a Stock operator' by Edwin Lefèvre, and 'The complete guide to volume price analysis' by Anna Coulling. They have had profound effect on my results and the way I now read the markets. The essence is simple, its how to read market volume effectively.
I first just want to make it clear that I recognize we have been in a roaring bull market since the April 2020, so I am acutely aware of how my viewpoint my be skewed based on the underlying strength and recovery of the UK markets.
The results that I am seeing after 6 months of solid research has been really eye opening and it has pushed me to publicly publish my trading journal with a new spread betting account. I have always treated the markets as a business and taking it very seriously, so recording and logging notes is part and parcel of my trading, so I thought why not create a trading journal and encourage discussion and education based on that.
This is a part time commitment for me but I will endeavor to update the blog at least once a week. If your interested please drop by at www.burning-both-ends.com
