Volatility-Based Technical Analysis bridges the advantage gap between resource rich institutions and individual traders. It is a no-calculus, plain English text that reveals original, highly technical, mathematical-based volatility indicators; complete with MetaStock® and TradeStation® code. With this in hand, any trader can “trade the invisible” by seeing a hidden mathematical structure on the price chart. Author Kirk Northington reveals his proprietary volatility indicators which serve as a market early warning system. Northington extensively teaches you how to build your own indicators, test them, and incorporate your original components into your specific trading methods.

This book:

• Walks traders through the mathematical techniques needed to create indicators that fit their own style

• Illustrates volatility-based entries and exits with over 170 descriptive chart examples

• Introduces two new concepts in technical analysis: Volatility Shift and PIV

Written with the serious trader in mind, Volatility-Based Technical Analysis has what you need to successfully trade today’s institutionally dominated markets.

Volatility-Based Technical Analysis is available in bookstores, and at most online book stores.

technical analysis trading system.
