Forex Trading: 2 Manuscripts
Book 1: Practical examples
Scalping is the fastest way to make money in the stock market. There is hardly another method that can be found that increases a trader’s capital more effectively. The Heikin Ashi Trader explains why this is so in this four-part series on scalping.
In this first book, he explains his setup with many practical examples. You will learn how to interpret Heikin-Ashi charts correctly, when to get into a market and when to get out. Also, you will learn how to combine the setup with important principles of technical analysis.
This highly effective scalping strategy can be applied in a short time frame; for instance, a 1-minute chart in addition to other higher time frames. You can trade using this universal method in equity indices and in the currency markets. Typical instruments, however, are futures and currencies.
Book 2: How do I rate my Trading Results?
In this second book, the Heikin Ashi trader answers the question of how the trading results of a scalper are analyzed and correctly evaluated. Based on the weekly results of a single trader, he examines what factors matter to having long-term success in the stock market. The analysis of the trading journal for 12 weeks allows an inside look at the learning curve of a budding professional.
