Book Description

2 breakthrough guides to harmonic trading: how to uncover natural patterns that consistently identify critical price levels and market shifts!

Looking for a powerful new approach to technical analysis that can prove its effectiveness? You’re looking for Scott Carney’s Harmonic Trading. Now, for the first time, you can get the world’s two best guides to Harmonic Trading for one low price, in convenient eBook format. In Harmonic Trading, Volume One: Profiting from the Natural Order of the Financial Markets, Carney offers the definitive introduction to this breakthrough approach. Carney, President and Founder of HarmonicTrader.com, demonstrates how harmonic trading combines Fibonacci measurement strategies with advanced pattern recognition analysis, unlocking valid market signals as if they were the combination to a safe. Carney presents natural harmonic patterns that consistently identify critical price levels and market turning points: patterns analogous to the predictable behavior of natural systems. Next, he presents a comprehensive plan for applying Harmonic Trading in real trades. Then, in Harmonic Trading, Volume Two: Advanced Strategies for Profiting from the Natural Order of the Financial Markets, Carney introduces advanced Harmonic Trading concepts presented in no other book, including the important 5-0 and Alternate Bat patterns. Carney also introduces the RSI BAMM Advanced Execution Model, a breakthrough approach to identifying the right trade at the right time. Both books are packed with examples from equities, currencies, commodities, and foreign markets; for both short- and long-term timeframes; and in all types of markets. Together, these books don’t just introduce valuable new technical analysis techniques: they show traders exactly how to profit from them.
