Praise for Trend Qualification & Trading

"An excellent swing trading guidebook that combines original trend theory with practical day-to-day applications. It successfully bridges the gap between classic technical analysis, the modern electronic market, and the working trader. My hats off to L.A. Little."
—Alan Farley, author, The Master Swing Trader and editor/publisher, Hard Right Edge

"In this insightful work, L.A. Little has taken a close look at basic concepts of technical analysis and analyzed them in detail. After reading Trend Qualification and Trading you are bound to approach the markets very systematically."
—Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan, Editor, Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities

"L.A. Little goes beyond the trend in technical analysis—that is, he breaks down the key aspect of stock market trading trends. In clear, conversational language, he shows how all trends are not created equal. How trends are qualified is crucial to predicting future outcomes, and L.A. Little explains how you can do so in his engaging style."
—William Hennelly, Managing Editor, TheStreet

"In his new book Trend Qualification and Trading, L.A. Little captures the true essence of trading a trend, identifying when it is occurring and establishing the safest and most profitable ways to exploit the trend. It's not about tops or bottoms, rather the recognition of patterns within that give one the highest probability of winning. With the vast number of tools available to the technician, defining the trend and riding it out is one that is critical for trading success. This book is a must-read and should be part of a technician's toolbox."
—Bob Lang, President, Aztec Capital, LLC

"L.A. reminds us that sometimes the first 'advancement' on a ground-breaking technical concept is actually a step in the wrong direction. His adaptation is the step forward many trend traders and technicians could use everyday to improve their trading results. Little's concepts are a must-read for any serious technician."
—Timothy Collins, Management Partner,TangleTrade Management

    Highly Recommended

    You may have to read this book more than once and come back to it often but chances are, if you're serious about trading, it will take pride of place on your bookshelf.

    No empty promises here but instead a systematic way of aligning price action and volume at key points in time to help you recognize the price trend as well as assign a measure of confidence to it indicative of how likely it is to continue. It then combines this with the use of anchored support and resistance zones to identify when you should look for changes to the trend.

    It is extremely thorough with a detailed and exhaustive list of examples and also does an excellent job on timeframe analysis. In particular, it introduces the trading cube that provides you with a one-stop view of the prevailing trend across multiple timeframes for the stock, its sector and the overall market.

    All in all a great resource. Read it, re-read it and refer to it often.
