Trading Between the Lines: Pattern Recognition and Visualization of Markets

Praise for Trading Between the Lines

“It’s refreshing to see an investment book focused on answering the key questions: What’s going on in the market? And where might prices be going next? In Trading Between the Lines, Elaine Knuthcon siders the very essence of market dynamics ,psychology, and the price patterns associated with a range of conditions and situations. These thoughts are then developed effectively in her book into a colorful lexicon of market environments and potentially powerful trading strategies.” —Adam Sorab, Head of TechnicalResearch, CQS LLP, UK

“Trading Between the Lines offers readers important insights about the manner in which market patterns reflect differences in perception and human emotion across the trading population. Elaine Knuth makes wonderful use of intuition to communicate the core ideas underlying technical analysis.”—Hersh Shefrin, Mario Belotti Professor of Finance, Santa Clara University

“Elaine explains bubbles, reversals, crashes, and how to take advantage of them with subtle common sense. She reminds us that prices and markets are a matter of human relationships, and not farfetched mathematics.”—Valérie Gastaldy, CommercialDirector, DayByDay, Paris, France

“As a market practitioner for more than 30 years, I have evolved from seeking an indicator to forecast the market to understanding that forecasting is best left to the analysts, and that it is better to make money than to be right. My compliments to Elaine; she has put her money on the line and learned from the hardest teacher in the world—the market. She shares many of these lessons in this book. I particularly liked the idea of creating market scenarios.Once a trader creates a scenario and understands what to do under various conditions, then he or she is never taken by surprise.”—James Stewart, Vice President and Director, CapitalMarkets Division , Raiffeisen Bank SA

Elaine Knuth

Book : Trading Between the Lines: Pattern Recognition and Visualization of Markets


Insights into a pattern-based method of trading that can increase the likelihood of profitable outcomes

While most books on chart patterns, or pattern recognition, offer detailed discussion and analysis of one type of pattern, the fact is that a single pattern may not be very helpful for trading, since it often does not give a complete picture of the market.

What sets Trading Between the Lines apart from other books in this area is author Elaine Knuth’s identification of sets of patterns that give a complete analysis of the market. In it, she identifies more complex chart patterns, often several patterns combined over multiple time frames, and skillfully examines these sets of patterns called “constellations” in relation to one another. These constellations turn sets of individual patterns into a more manageable set of patterns, where the relationship between them can lead to tactical trading opportunities.

  • Shows how to apply complex patterns to specific trades and identify opportunities as well entry and exit points
  • Markets covered include commodities, equities, and indexes
  • Presents an effective trading approach based on real market cycles-as opposed to computer simulations-that are found in active markets

Moving beyond the simple identification of basic patterns to identifying pattern constellations, this reliable resource will give you a better view of what is really going on in the market and help you profit from the opportunities you uncover.
