CHAPTER 8

Putting It All Together

David G. Hawkins

In this chapter I pull together the techniques I have presented in earlier chapters, and show how they can be used profitably in trading. There are various styles of trading that go by names such as trend following (also known as momentum trading), trading base breakouts (and the complementary opposite, top breakdowns), and picking tops or bottoms. The MIDAS S/R curves and TB-Fs, along with the supportive techniques I have presented already—the works of Elder,1 Arms,2 and Woods3—can be used in combination very beneficially in all of these trading styles. In this chapter, I'll show examples of these.
