Only thing I know about Al Brooks is that it is price action at a very granular level (a bar-by-bar method of following price action). The book is very hard to read and follow and some people on ET really like the content and think there is real value in the content. Before I embark on any kind of research on this topic, I thought I will ask for opinion of traders who like to test ideas rigorously. Has anyone successfully coded the ideas in Al Brooks and done some rigorous backtesting on them? Is it even possible to codify the ideas or an element of discretion is involved? Thanks in advance.
