A Practical Guide to Indicators
Paperback 144 pages, ISBN 978-90-77553-09-1
‘A Practical Guide to Indicators’ leads you through the selection and application of technical analysis indicators and trading systems, with a bias towards practical and useful information rather than theoretical depth. It describes the most commonly used trend-following indicators, trend indicators, oscillators and volume indicators. It also covers the backtesting and optimization of indicators, and discusses DIY trading systems.
A crucial element of successful trading is the correct buy/sell timing based on technical analysis. However, this book also deals with other key subjects that are equally important, like psychological factors and money management. In addition, the pros and cons of various financial instruments – futures, options and CFDs – are discussed.
