I have recently bought book "stock patern for daytrading" by Barry Rudd. Question 1: He discusses one of the criteria for entering the trade in price spike up is, that price must have spiked up at least 3/4 of a point (means little less than one dollor )within 5minutes. Now what confusses me here is that how it is possible that price increase that much in 5 minute only, since i have never seen that before? And in level II screen he always shows spread of 1/4 to 1/8 spread for each tier, but i never see that kind of spread on any stock with level II screen? Question 2: What do you think about "stock patterns for daytrading" by Barry Rudd. I have bought this book recently and read first half of this book which covers TA. I bought this book because of book title "for daytrading". But seems 75% of setup good for swing trading, and looking at QQQ intraday charts, none of his patterns happen and can be used for sclap trading. May be i am wrong or may be i bought wrong book as a sclaper. what is your opinion on this book?
