Later he edited and published his Technical Forces, a monthly commodity letter that dealt with price/volume behavior. He is the co-author ofCharting the Stock Market: The Wyckoff Method and in 2013 wrote Trades About To Happen: A Modern Adaptation of the Wyckoff Method.

During this webinar David will demonstrate how to read and work with Renko charts. Renko charts, developed in Japan, filter out the market noise by focusing exclusively on minimum price changes, as time is excluded from the analysis. Renko "bricks" are not added unless price changes by a specific amount. As with Point & Figure charts, it is easy to spot important highs and lows, and identify key support and resistance levels. Armed with this information, chartists can identify uptrends with higher highs and higher lows or downtrends with lower lows and lower highs.

We have been in a heightened state of volatility and have experienced substantial increases in trading volume in Equity  and Commodity based ETFs and Options as traders have tried to minimize risk while maximizing profits. Many argue that this volatility has been created by the fact that Global Central banks have been infusing liquidity to ward off a financial Armageddon.  The truth is since the collapse in 2008 we have undergone a major transformation in how, what and why we trade thanks in part to this technologically advanced millennium. There is no doubt the changes in our trading is a direct result of this new trading environment which is run by computer driven algorithms and “robo-trading” systems. Look at the binary events earnings seasons bring or the massive sector rotation we experience what seems to be about almost every single Quarter. Investors do have an edge, they just need to learn to tweak their analysis to conform to this “new Millennium” trading style. Join us as John Person will explain what he’s discovered as some of the best indicators and tools used to identify high probability trades. This session that will walk you through the process and the best technical indicators used to select stocks for swing and position traders  between five days to ten weeks. Scalpers and Option Traders will absolutely will want to attend as the information is critical in helping to select the best option expiration to manage the trade as the trend matures.
