Predict the future more accurately in today's difficult tradingtimes
The Holy Grail of trading is knowing what the markets will do next.Technical analysis is the art of predicting the market based ontested systems. Some systems work well when markets are "trending,"and some work well when they are "cycling," going neither up nordown, but sideways. In Trading with Signal Analysis, notedtechnical analyst John Ehlers applies his engineering expertise todevelop techniques that predict the future more accurately in thesetimes that are otherwise so difficult to trade. Since cycles andtrends exist in every time horizon, these methods are useful evenin the strongest bull--or bear--market.
John F. Ehlers (Goleta, CA) speaks internationally on the subjectof cycles in the market and has expanded the scope of hiscontributions to technical analysis through the application ofscientific digital signal processing techniques.
