I don't find volume useful. I just confuse me. I think I will stick to true price.

For Al, I think he should hire someone to write his book. I just finished Trader Vic, and he admitted, he cannot write so he hire a write to put his idea in words that make sense for the rest of us. No wonder when I was reading it, I keep saying myself, that this guy really know how to present his ideas.

Al Brooks has promised the new books (3) have been carefully edited and proof-read by other traders. Even with all the errors and dense prose the first book was worth every penny; the new ones should be even better.

Agreed. Simple but powerful concepts that have already improved my trading. There is very little that is actually new in trading and sometimes it's just how a concept is applied that makes the difference. Al's book made me think about price action in a way that I had not before, and it was immediately beneficial. And I'm a range bar junkie so half the material doesn't even apply, but well worth a look.

This guy also has a great blog I thought, https://cadavertrading.blogspot.com/ on the topic. I don't know his credentials but the BPA content looks good so far.

Al Brooks book has already been mentioned.

What about the J16 room that you can find on ForexFactory? I don't know if it's still around but he had a forum dedicated to price action. However, from what I saw during my brief time there it seems to be different than the PA taught by Al Brooks, based on what I've seen of Al Brooks on this site. Maybe Brook's book has material that is covered by J16 as well.

One note though...it's just my opinion, but I had the feeling that what J16 taught made sense, though he didn't actually trade what he preached. Could be totally off, but that was my take.
