By learning how to better integrate elements of market analysis such as time and price, you’ll be ready to trade with confidence and achieve success. The proven methodologies that are discussed from the technical side include:

Pivot points--a leading price indicator that is based on price points using different time frames Cycle analysis--which deals with predicting market turning points based on time Candle chart patterns--which are based on price relationships between the open, high, low, and close including past chart points such as old highs or lows Fibonacci ratio corrections and extension studies--which are based on past price points Mental thought processes--the last and maybe the most important aspect of trading, which will help you evaluate your psychological makeup and overcome rough spots to stay focused when trading.

If you are to trade successfully, you need to understand that it requires hard work, discipline, and, above all, that you remain focused with the use of methodologies that pinpoint opportunities and help you take control of your emotions. A Complete Guide to Technical Trading Tactics will go a long way toward accomplishing these goals.
