9780975551318: How Markets Really Work: A Quantitative Guide to Stock Market Behavior

Published for the very first time ever. Over 850 practical, easy-to-use historical probabilities on the most commonly traded market scenarios!

For years, traders and investors have been using unproven assumptions about popular patterns such as breakouts, momentum, new highs, new lows, market breadth, put/call ratios and more without knowing if there is a statistical edge.

Have you ever wondered the following...

Do these patterns actually make you money? Read on and you'll be surprised by what 15 years of new, previously unpublished research reveals.

Is there a radically different, better way to trade these patterns and indicators that somehow has escaped the awareness of traders and investors? You'll find the answers below...

The answers to both of these questions and much more is contained in Larry Connors' new book, How Markets Really Work. Through new research, much of which has never before been published, you will be able to clearly see which of nearly 850 meticulously researched patterns and indicators have an edge -- and which do not. Best of all, you will be able to apply this information whenever you trade.

Here's how you can use How Markets Really Work in your trading every day. Learn how to focus on trades that have the best edge and stop trading setups that have zero edge. Every time you trade, just look up the current market action in the book so that you can potentially maximize your winning trades while weeding out the losing ones.

Gain an edge that many traders and professional traders do not have. Most traders will continue to operate according to incorrect conventional wisdom because much of it "seems to make sense." But by using How Markets Really Work as your daily reference guide, you will be able to take advantage of market behaviors that consistently repeated themselves over and over again in the past.

Use it to better time your entries and exits into stocks and ETFs. Many times the trading system or methodology you are using will tell you to enter or exit a trade into price action that matches one of the patterns listed in How Markets Really Work. When this occurs, it's a great opportunity for you to fine tune your actions so that statistical probabilities are working in your favor and not against you.

The knowledge contained in How Markets Really Work can be used in developing your very own systems and strategies. Whether you are a system developer or you just want to improve your existing trading strategy, you can use the core knowledge in this book to stimulate your own research and create new systems.

Impact your trading with never-before-seen research on put/call ratios, price movement, breadth indicators, large one-day moves, volume and much, much more. Whether you use these indicators or not, you will finally be able to make informed decisions about their true value to your trading. Each Chapter Of How Markets Really Work Is Backed By Up To 15 Years Of Historical Results!

From the Inside Flap:

Presenting a unique but simple philosophy for looking at the financial markets, How Markets Really Work, Second Edition: A Quantitative Guide to Stock Market Behavior is the one-stop resource for individual and professional traders, investors, money managers, and anyone else interested in better understanding the markets and how they function. Although predominantly focusing on short-term market actions, the trading strategies introduced and explained here can be applied equally well to longer-term investment opportunities.

Designed to help readers identify where market averages have given investors an edge and how to exploit those edges over and over again, the book is based on one central theme: buying short-term weakness has outperformed buying short-term strength over the past fifteen years. Revised and updated, this Second Edition includes three new chapters to further its comprehensive scope. These include coverage of an oscillator for identifying overbought and oversold market conditions, coverage of long-term market behavior that definitively illustrates that low-volatility stocks outperform high-volatility stocks, and an all-new short-term strategy for trading in S&P 500 stocks.

Packed with decades of market wisdom from financial experts Larry Connors and Cesar Alvarez, the book tackles common beliefs about investing head on, finding that much of what the trading world takes for granted is simply not true. Utilizing an illustration-rich format that clearly demonstrates market action, How Markets Really Work refutes the value of volume, shows that the rule of thumb for determining market strength—a market that rallies for a few days in a row is strong while one that drops over the same period is weak—is a faulty indicator, and much more.

Predicated on the belief that, contrary to common wisdom, markets don't change, How Markets Really Work, Second Edition takes a clearheaded look at the facts of the last twenty-plus years to help you understand the real history of the financial markets and how you can profit from them.

From the Back Cover:

A data-driven look at how thefinancial markets really work

Common wisdom holds that the stock markets are ever changing. But, as it turns out, common wisdom can be wrong. Offering a comprehensive look back at the way the markets have acted over the last two decades, How Markets Really Work, Second Edition: A Quantitative Guide to Stock Market Behavior shows that nothing has changed, that the markets behave the same way today as they have in years past, and that understanding this puts you in a prime position to profit. Written by two top financial experts and filled with charts and graphs that illustrate the market concepts they develop, the book takes a sometimes contrarian view of everything from market edges to historical volatility, and from volume to put/call ratio, giving you all that you need to truly understand how the markets function. Fully revised and updated, How Markets Really Work, Second Edition takes a level-headed, data-driven look at the markets and how you can apply that information intelligently when making investment decisions.
