candlestick book

  1. any one can give me a name for a good book to understand candle charts
     
  2. I'll tell you the best two I've seen:

    Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques by Steve Nison

    Candlestick Charting Explained by Gregory Morris

    Nison is the gentleman who brought candles into the west. He also has a volume two which most say is a rehash of volume one. Morris does an excellent job of explaining candles, and his book is cheaper than Nison's.
     
  3. Magna-

    Though being a moderator maybe thankless , I think you do an excellent job. Just the right amount interjection without being overbearing. You're also very good at steering posters in the right direction. Right on man :)

  4. Thanks, man, appreciate it. Ok, ok, where do I mail the check... :)
     

  5. ... to me
     
  6. And Greg Morris' book has a great chapter (i think - 7) on candle pattern recognition and the percentage success rate that each carries. it is this kind of stuff that i thought lacked in Nison's books.
