I was particularly pleased with his discussions on top-down analysis, 'putting the market wind at your back,' a subject that traders very often ignore."

"Richard Wyckoff revisited: I have followed Tim Ord since the Fall of 1998—about the time I started Hamzei Analytics. I have read his e-mailed report every day around 2 p.m. PST, and often it has given me an angle that I had missed in my own price, volume, and sentiment analyses. (I was so impressed with Tim's work over the years, that I asked him to contribute a chapter to my own book—Master Traders.) Now Tim has written this fantastic book, and the full picture is complete. I seldom endorse others, but in this case, I must recommend this book to every serious student of our capital markets."
—Fari Hamzei, founder, Hamzei Analytics, LLC, and author of Master Traders: Strategies for Superior Returns from Today's Top Traders

"Tim has outlined a truly useful approach to the market. All investors, not just stock investors, can make use of the specific tools that Tim gives us in his work. It's a very readable book that shows how Tim went from 'one of us' to become the 'Oracle.'"
—Jason Goepfert, President, www.SentimenTrader.com

"Timothy Ord is one of the great stock market technicians of the twenty-first century. He is extremely well read and builds on the work of others to develop his outstanding approaches to trading stocks, the stock market, and gold. No serious trader should be without this book!"
—Christopher Cadbury, General Partner, Cadbury Asset Management, and Publisher of the Cadbury Market Timing Service

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.
