About This Book

This book isn’t intended to be an end-all-be-all guide to profitable trading. It’s meant to provide readers with some insight into how candlesticks are created and how they can be used to analyze the psychology behind what happens over the course of trading days. (When I say “psychology,” I’m not trying to conjure up images of Freud and Rorschach tests; I’m talking about the motivating factors that help to determine how the market behaves.)

I hope that the candlestick methods described in this book help readers to make trading and investment decisions that lead to solid profits, but unfortunately, there’s no guaranteeing that. What I can guarantee is that after reading this book (or even parts of this book), you can gain a useful understanding of what candlesticks are, what they represent, and how they can be used in trading.
