Overview

Praise for Sentiment Indicators - Renko, Price Break, Kagi, Point & Figure: What They Are and How to Use Them to Trade

"By marrying technical analysis and market sentiment, Abe Cofnas takes the art of interpreting the markets' topological patterns to a new level. Sentiment Indicators shows us why shapes count."
Steve H. Hanke, Professor of Applied Economics, Johns Hopkins University

"The process of extracting alpha in today's markets grows increasingly challenging as strategies become more automated, technology becomes more robust, and the market as a whole becomes more dynamic. Abe Cofnas's ability to quantify market sentiment gives traders an effective means to compete in this new paradigm. Sentiment Indicators provides one-of-a-kind insight into the world of proprietary trading strategies and serves as a solid framework for those professionals looking to further enhance their current trading protocols, as well as those seeking viable inputs in the programming of black box and algorithmic trading models."
John Netto, President, M3 Capital, and author of Spread Trading EurexEquity Index Futures: A Guide for Traders

"Abe Cofnas does a great job in delivering how traders can profit from the proper use of Sentiment Indicators. This book is a must for all traders. I highly recommend it!"
John Person, founder, NationalFutures.com

"Maybe you're already using technical and fundamental analysis to guide your portfolios. But if you're not also looking at sentiment indicators, then you're missing out. Sentiment indicators provide you with improved skills in filtering the noise of the market. And Abe Cofnas's book is a must-have manual for anyone working to grow their market knowledge and individual wealth."
Addison Wiggin, three-time New York Times bestselling author; Executive Producer, I.O.U.S.A.; and Executive Publisher, Agora Financial
