    Steve Nison has a simple way of explaing his subject material, which leads to a lot of 'Ah Ha' moments. I own both his previous books and have been studying them intensely. This course, while it naturally covers much of the same ground, is a valuable addendum to those books.I have studied various forms of Technical Analysis (TA) intensely, despite being a Value investor of the Benjamin Graham school. Most forms of TA seem to me to be overly complicated and based on assumptions about the behaviour of charts and mathematical data. Computers have been a wonderful tool for the TA devotee as they have allowed development of ever more complicated forms of analysis, all of them with short histories. Candlestick analysis on the other hand has a successful history of use going back 400 years. It is based on the psychology of people and the various patterns have enormous empirical support.As with any new set of techniques, there is information and jargon to learn which is always a little daunting. In this case the effort is worth it. I have found that by learning Candlestick techniques I am starting to be able to 'read' a chart in much the same way as I would a page of writing.There are other teachers of Candlestick techniques out there but I know of none who do the job as well as Steve Nison. By the way, he was also the first to bring the techniques to the attention of the Western World.My recommendation? By this course first, then his other two books. Follow the course and you will quickly develop a far better understanding of the probable behaviour of markets. The books and materials have more than recovered their cost for me with my investments.

    I didn't know what a Japanese Candlestick was before I picked up this book at the age of 52. Written in an easy to understand language with just enough information in each section to take in at one sitting and also with humour. It is written in a relaxed, easy and friendly style that is excellent for retaining information and I'm enjoying every page. Highly recommended.

    Steve Nison's books were highly recommended in some of the beginner's guide to trading books I've read. Following the advice of another reviewer, I decided to start with this course and I was not disappointed.Each section describes two or three candles at a time in a very simple and concise way. At first, when reading the first chapter, I thought it was way too basic but when I reached the questionnary of that section I understood the purpose of this book: It makes you think.The author asks some tricky questions and gives you a chance to make your own interpretation of the candles/graphs. Afterward he gives you all the necessary explanations and you can check if you were right or wrong and why. I think this method is very effective.I particularly liked the chapter about windows/gaps and the progressive charting chapter, where Nison broke a chart worth 5 months of data in 44 parts and explained it part by part (using the same methodology, where you get a chance to interpret it by yourself first and then get the answers later). I actually think this chapter alone is worth the price of the book.I started reading this book with a know-it-all attitude and this book proved me wrong. I'm glad it did. I highly recommend it for the new trader/investor.

    Technical analysis has been an interest of mine for some time, and this title was recommended by fellow trading enthusiasts. On reading this book one naturally begins to wonder how can quite simple candlestick patterns (and most are quite simple) make you money consistently. Well the patterns do work, you only have to look at historic charts (many examples are provided in this book) and pick out the same candle combinations Steve illustrates so well, and see their predictive capability. Of course, that isn't the full story, if it really WAS that simple, no one would do any real work and we would all be retired living an idyllic life sustained by a trading income. The reality is that chart patterns are one element of the key to trading success; you have to be able to use them in combination with other tools such as risk management strategies (something Steve only touches on in this book) and Western type analysis methods. Combined together they will give you an edge. Even if you rely on the candlestick formations themselves, these can take on less than classic guise in the real world, so it isn't an exact science.What this book does nicely, is provide a strong interactive foundation on the meaning of candlestick patterns. It will leave you wanting more (and fortunately there is more, he has written 2 other titles in this area that broaden out the topics he covers here). If you don't know all the basic candlestick patterns, pick this book up first and study it. Its interactive format and numerous example charts will get you very comfortable with analysing candlesticks.A Croft
