These technical indicators are never used alone but applied in various combinations. Developed and tested over many years by the authors, the highly reliable strategies described in this book combine a variety of charting techniques, which, when used in conjunction, have been shown to yield extremely accurate predictions about a stock's movements through the four cyclical phases of Birth, Momentum, Exhaustion and Death.
