Overview

Powerful Strategies to Slip Between Day Traders and Long-Term Investors—and Grab Hidden Trading Profits!



Located in the gray area between the lightning-fast day trader and the endlessly patient buy-and-hold investor, the modern swing trader executes intermediate positions that offer highly lucrative results with less volatility. The Master Swing Trader contains a wealth of practical insights and information for using this powerful trading method to profit from short-term price moves often missed by other market participants.

After beginning with a detailed background on Pattern Cycle applications and the trend-range axis, The Master Swing Trader presents:


* Dozens of specific trading strategies and setups that include precise reward, risk, and stop-loss considerations


* Concrete tips, tactics, and workflows to make informed choices at each stage of short-term trade evolution


* The 7 Bells – unique tools to uncover high-probability short-term trading prospects



With more than 200 charts and dozens of proprietary setups that illustrate both classic and highly original short-term tactics, The Master Swing Trader doesn’t leave your trading profits to chance. Coldly analytical and backed by real-time trading results, this proven course for short-term traders will help you improve your bottom line, lessen your risks—and increase your confidence in building solid profits in today’s volatile markets!



Biased news stories spun by insiders to manipulate options prices…Questionable stocks pushed by analysts so their trading departments can unload bloated inventories … Quick-trigger day traders chasing the latest chat room buzz …



Today’s top market players understand that our "efficient" markets are actually highly inefficient, driven by insiders with hidden agendas and an irrational pack mentality that has little to do with underlying value. Fortunately, this constant imbalance generates repeated, high-probability trade setups—and Alan Farley’s The Master Swing Trader reveals how you can find and profit from these difficult-to-spot opportunities before they disappear.



Farley’s innovative system is based on Pattern Cycles—shifting market stages that repeat in an orderly, predictable process through all price charts and time frames. These classic Pattern Cycles:


* Describe the machine language within market opportunity


* Reveal the origin of the trade setup


* Explain how to capitalize on inefficiency through every bull and bear phase


* Show exactly where to uncover consistent profit opportunities


* Offer natural methods to shift tactics quickly as conditions change


* Predict the impact of the emotional crowd on trend, range, and price development



The Master Swing Trader will help you apply Pattern Cycles to your advantage, over and over again. By encompassing virtually all market action, and revealing how price moves in a highly predictable manner, its powerful tools will give you the edge you need to take other people’s money before they take yours.



In today’s lightning-fast markets, open information makes profit opportunities decidedly more difficult to spot and capitalize upon—with the investing herd becoming far more skilled at spotting inefficiencies and closing them up quickly. The Master Swing Trader will teach you to recognize these trade setups one step ahead of the crowd, dive in for solid profits, and close out your position before the majority has even caught on.



Pattern Cycles are not easy or automatic; they require concentration, discipline, and skilled execution. But the payoff of these classic strategies is virtually unlimited. Turn to page 1 of The Master Swing Trader now, and open a new world of trading possibilities and profits—the world of the master swing trader!

    The Educator Who Can't Teach

    This book deserves one star because the author sounds like Kung Fu's main character, Kwai Chang Caine. Mr. Farley fails miserably at clearly communicating his ideas/concepts and the writing is verbose. An educator is supposed to make complex concepts simpler to understand 'think Einstein and his theory of relativity'. The prose in Master Swing Trader is pretentious, redundant and roundabout.

    Wordy and not very practical

    I really can't recommend this book. Its long winded and never really seems to get to the point. It also not very practical in terms of what I see when I trade.

    Don't bother.

    Talk about re-inventing the wheel! Apparently the standard terms of technical analysis per Edwards and Magee, Elder, Murphy et alia aren't good enough for Alan Farley: he invents his own. The reader, to follow Farley's exposition, must therefore translate. Farley's way with words would make that task painful even if it were to prove worth the effort - he's a terrible writer, and if there is some logic to the organization (and I use the term loosely) of his thoughts, it eluded this reader. There are better books out there.

    Too wordy, and not enough meat

    There are some good principles in the book, but its way to easy to get lost in all of the repetition and blandness. The section on fibonocci retracements was useful and seems to work well for me in practice; however, I didn't get much else from the book.

    Write a book for a paragraph.

    If you read, from the publisher, no wonder the book is the same. The entire book is expanded. Save the paper. Ever learned to be concise? My writing teachers would scream. I definitely screamed. The book has a lot of good stuff. But you cant get to it if there's too much overwrite before you can get to the things you want. Besides it really gets boring. I dont think anyone actually finished reading the book. The book would do better if written from a beginners or intermediate traders point of view and not an unneeded madeup high and mighty point of view.

    Best New Trading Book!

    This is an outstanding book on the markets. I've been trading for over 17 years, but Farley introduces a ton of stuff that I've never heard of before. His point of view is fascinating and there is absolutely no hype or hard-sell in the text. Quite amazing after all the garbage in other trading books published the last couple of years. Very well-written, comprehensive and satisfying in both general concepts and detailed trading strategies. In going through this book, I got the feeling that I was reading the next trading 'classic'. In many ways, Master Swing Trader belongs up there with those few books that traders 'must' read to complete their market education. Hats off to Alan Farley!
