Book : Fibonacci Analysis (Bloomberg Market Essentials: Technical Analysis) by Constance Brown
Only someone who is both a successful trader and a successful writer could pull off what Constance Brown has accomplished in this book: distilling Fibonacci analysis to two hundred or so comprehensive, clearly written, eminently practical pages. Brown knows exactly what a professional trying to come up to speed on a new trading tool needs and she provides it, covering what Fibonacci analysis is, how it works, where it comes from, pitfalls and dangers, and, of course, how to use it. Basic trading strategies are touched upon in virtually every chapter. Fibonacci analysis is one of the most popular technical analysis tools, yet it is often used incorrectly. Brown quickly clears up common misconceptions and moves on to show, step by step, the correct way to apply the technique in any market. Those with Fibonacci analysis software will learn how to use it with maximum effectiveness; those without will chart the market the old-fashioned way. All will find answers to the trader’s most important questions: Where is the market going? At what level should my stop be entered? Based on the size of my trading account, how much should I leverage into a trading position? Can I tell if I am in trouble before my stop is hit? How much should I buy or sell if given a second or third opportunity? Occasional references to other tools–including Elliott Wave, W.D. Gann, and candlestick charts–and an extensive bibliography make this book richer for accomplished technical analysts without confounding the less experienced. Plentiful real-life examples and dozens of carefully annotated charts insure every reader will get maximum value from every minute spent with this book. Gold Medal Winner (tie), Investing Category, Axiom Business Book Awards (2009) Winner: Book Series Cover Design, The Bookbinders Guild of New York/2009 New York Book Show AwardsThe Bloomberg Market Essentials: Technical Analysis Series covers the key elements of the most widely-used technical analysis tools. While there is considerable market information on technical analysis (which is used by virtually every trader and individual investor), there is a clear niche for books that can help market traders to get up to speed on individual analysis tools, and Fibonacci Analysis is the first title in this new series. Fibonacci Analysis analyses trend and counter-trend movements within markets to identify the future market price. This new book, eminently practical rather than theoretical or academic, shows how to use the technique correctly for a higher probability of trading success. Author Constance Brown delivers this essential knowledge in her trademark style, providing readers with an essential and invaluable reference work.
