Overview

Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guide to Chart Patterns

The Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guide to Chart Patterns provides step-by-step instructions on using technical chart patterns to spot potential price movement and improve trading returns.

Internationally known author Thomas Bulkowski is a leading expert on chart patterns and a successful investor with thirty years of experience trading stocks. In this easy-to-use guide he shows you how to recognize chart patterns, understand why they behave as they do, and learn what it means when you see one. Most importantly, he tells you how to identify basic buy and sell signals that the different types of patterns reveal.

Light in tone, the book is aimed specifically at the investor or trader already experienced in the stock market, but not necessarily familiar with chart patterns. Trading chart patterns is easy, but making money using them is not. With the knowledge in this book, you'll learn to see not just squiggles on price charts, but footprints of the smart money.

The Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guides cover today's most relevant finance and trading topics in a comprehensive, yet easy-to-follow style. The content is presented in the most visual manner thus bringing to life key concepts for finance professionals and truly lives up to the series name by examining concepts in a highly visual way—all charts are in color and presented in a large format for ease of use. Other strong visual attributes include consistent elements that function as additional learning aids for the reader, such as: Key Points, Definitions, Step-by-Step, Do It Yourself, and Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guide functionality.

And for e-reader users, the Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guides are available as enhanced e-books offering special features, like a Test Yourself section where you can test your newly honed knowledge and skills. The enhanced e-book version of this edition includes video tutorials and special pop-up features. They can be purchased wherever e-books are sold.
