Trying to learn what I can about candlestick charts as they apply to reading price action. Was reading a commentary and he was throwing out acronyms like A1 and W1P and many others. Figured before I can start reading price action I probably need to start from the beginning. I did some searches on these acronyms and it looks like they originated or are at least explained in depth by Al Brooks. Couldn't find any in depth info yet online so thought about getting a book from someone that gets into it. I have read many comments about a book called "Bar by bar" by Al Brooks but mostly not favorable. Having said that, would one still recommend this book or are there any other sources where I can get this info broken down? The one that really threw me off was here: http://ninetrans.blogspot.com/2011/09/price-action-basics-i-bar-selection.html where he gets into well-formed bars and I just don't understand it. I'm not really asking anyone to explain this specifically but want to find a source where I can learn about all of it. Thanks.
