Amazon link to his latest book:

Amazon.com: Trading Price Action Trends: Technical Analysis of Price Charts Bar by Bar for the Serious Trader (Wiley Trading) (9781118066515): Al Brooks: Books

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Perhaps a new thread should be started to discuss the new book and what is inside.

Mike


I ordered the book last week through Amazon and it just came in. It appears that he is releasing 2 other books after this one, so it will be a 3 volume set where he addresses his strategies.

As Big Mike said, I would love to start a thread about the new book and go through it with others if anyone is interested...

His other 2 books are scheduled to come out on January 3rd and January 24th...according to Amazon.

The 3 Titles are:

-Trading Price Action Trends
-Trading Price Action Ranges
-Trading Price Action Reversals


Any Takers?

It is on my list. But as his first book was the worst written book I ever read, I am waiting for some more comments about his writing progress...

Can you explain dots


Jeff Castille View Post
Hey Cunparis,

I thought you might like to see what your previous chart looked like with the dots on it. Scalper paradise.

I have been reading through this thread and came upon your post and chart. I was intrigued by the dots indicator. I am new to the site and have searched, but can't seem to find anything that explains. Can you shed some light on the indicator you were using here please. Thanks!

Leon

H1, H2 indicator

Hello, I am curious to know if anyone has H1, H2 indicator that would count H1, H2, L1, L2.. Is it possible to program such an indicator to make life easier? it will only work if there is a trend so you will have to introduce another indicator like ADX.. just wondering. If anyone has any ideas, please share.

I found one in the "indicators" section, it is called "Brooks bars" and it finds all highs and lows but doesn't count the bars.

I am 38% into the trend book and compared to al's previous book, it is definitely a relief to read.

You may want to get a look at the PriceActionSwing indicator here in the forum at the Downloads section

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
