you ever wonder when to buy a stock and, even more important, when
to sell it? This common question among traders and investors has
no easy answer. However, applying chart analysis makes it easier
for you to make critical buy-sell decisions in a timely manner.
a beginning trader, I constantly referred to books in an effort
to understand chart patterns. To help me as I analyzed charts, I
drew up a one-page “cheat sheet” for quick reference,
but still found myself going back to certain books to get specific
I became an educator, I saw that my workshop students also needed
a reference guide to satisfy their analysis needs. So I turned my
personal “cheat sheet” into a one-page (front and back)
quick-reference guide, which the students prized.
solve the “it doesn’t contain enough information”
problem, I expanded the quick-reference guide into a book and made
it more useful by including key models, example charts, and a comprehensive
glossary of terms. Investing your hard-earned money in the stock
market is serious business and can be drudgery when trades don’t
go well. Personally, I enjoy any endeavor when it’s fun. So
to make this guide fun as well as useful, I have included “bull
and bear” cartoons to make market trends easy to spot.
“optimistic” bull describes a person who believes the
stock market will go up and the economy is flourishing. The “pessimistic”
bear, on the other hand, believes the stock market will go down
and the economy is weak.
New York City’s formative years, there was a wall on Wall
Street to separate the financial district from the farmland. Think
about the farm animals on the other side of the wall as they relate
to the stock market. The sheep are shy and will follow anyone while
the pigs get fat and the hogs get slaughtered. In other words, don’t
follow just any one’s advice; do your own analysis and make
your own decisions. It’s all right to get fat —making
money is what it’s all about. But hogs get greedy, which can
cause severe loses. Worse yet, it messes up your good judgment.
may remember that George Washington took his oath of office in 1789
while standing on the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street. A
statute stands there today in his honor. But did he coin the “bull”
and “bear” expressions? Not likely. But I heard a story
about the bulls and bears that seems realistic so I include it here.
the California gold rush starting in 1848, the gold miners entertained
themselves with gambling. They put a bull and a bear in a ring and
in no time the fight was on. The miners placed bets on the outcome
of the fight.
imagine how a bull would fight. As it charges the bear, its head
is down yet at the moment of impact, it raises its head high. The
bear stands up on its hind legs to attack and smashes down on the
bull with its front paws. The bull raises its head high and the
bear goes down. It’s quite a “dance” and makes
sense to me.

was really nice to get your book because it’s easy to use,
easy to understand, and easy to look up information. I really appreciate
this gem of a book that is also so easy to carry with me.”

love your book! It’s put together in such an organized fashion
and so easy to read. Many times, stock people write books and pamphlets
for other stock people instead of using simple language that’s
easily interpreted for more folks. I can't wait to try out your
an office worker who loves learning about trading in stocks. When
I heard about your book, I read it since I get your newsletters
from time to time. I found your book to be very informative. Now
I use it as a reference guide.”
I've been looking to make some investments and desperately want
to appear intelligent when speaking with investment counselors.
Your book helped me do that. It gave me an investment "language"
so that I could convey more about what I really want my investing
to do. The best part was that it didn't make me feel stupid because
I didn't already know this stuff. P.S. I like the illustrations
because I'm a visual learner.”
