Overview

Price and volume analysis is a proven way to trade the markets. Pioneered by Richard Wyckoff during the early decades of the twentiethcentury, this technique continues to produce consistent profits for many practitioners.

Over the course of his successful career, leading market timer Tim Ord has developed a distinct understanding of this discipline and built a winning trading strategy around it. Now, with The Secret Science of Price and Volume, he looks to share his invaluable insights with you.

Written in a straightforward and accessible style, The Secret Science of Price and Volume outlines a top-down approach to trading that will allow you to make the most of your time in a variety of markets—from stocks to commodities. With this book as your guide, you'll quickly become familiar with Ord's time-tested method and discover how it can be used to make more profitable trading decisions.

Step by step, you'll learn how to:

  • Gauge the sentiment of a market to determine if the trend is bullish or bearish, and whether a possible high or low is nearby

  • Evaluate breadth, volume, and momentum in order to identify triggers to enter the market

  • Find the best performing sectors that are aligned with the market

  • Select the strongest stocks within those sectors

Ord also illustrates various techniques for identifying trade setups, concentrating on the volume within a specific index or issue. Using these tools, he shows you how to "listen" to what the market is saying and move in concert with it, rather than making random trades based on one signal, a hunch, or rumors. Rounding out this detailed discussion, Ord replicates the sequence of steps you should take to create a successful game plan for winning in the market.

By tackling the markets from the top down—identifying the trend, picking the strongest sectors, and focusing on the best stocks within those sectors—you can capture high returns with low risk. The Secret Science of Price and Volume will help you to do this and much more, as it details a practical way to make better trades.

Meet the Author

Timothy Ord is President, Editor, and Publisher of The Ord Oracle, which is an electronic advisorynewsletter that recommends S&P, NASDAQ, and gold stock trades. He is frequently listed as one of the top-ten market timers in the country. Timer Digest ranked him the number-one gold timer for the one-year period ending January 13, 2006, and the number-two gold timer—and number-five S&P timer—in 2004. Ord introduced the tick index method in 1991, and the method is now widely used by short-term stock traders. He has also developed a new trading method (packaged in a software program) called Ord Volume, which measures strength in a rally or decline for a stock or index. His Web site is www.ord-oracle.com.
