PART FOUR
Tactical Planning
How to Engage the Market, Pull the Trigger, and Hit your Targets
 
 
 
 
 
In the following chapters, you will learn how to read the subtle clues your chart may be giving you. Is the market maintaining its confidence or are some of the traders jumping ship? This is important, because it may be a bull market, but are there as many bulls as there used to be? Candlesticks and oscillators can be good sources of market intelligence.
Then there are the times when trend, speed, or momentum are meaningless. The market is moving on emotion more than intellect. This only occurs after important news events, which happen virtually every day. This type of trade needs its own short-term methodology if you are going to survive. I’ll take you through it step by step.

• How to read individual candlesticks.
