Successful traders use CandleSticks as a tool to enhance investment results and reduce portfolio risk.   These 99 CandleSticks cover virtually 90% of all signals. This book is complete.  It does not contain advertising and requires no additional purchases. 

Candlestick Charting, known in Japanese as “Sakata,” has been in use for over 300 years. Sakata Candlestick Charting provides a statistically reliable system for evaluating and forecasting the future movements of stocks, bonds, commodities and forex currencies. 

This guide works with the 99 most reliable Sakata (Candlestick) patterns. Each pattern has its own page and is pictured and described concisely and accurately. Because this guide is completely interactive, the user can look in the front, find the pattern that most closely resembles his current chart and link to the page in seconds. 

Many candle combinations often find their way into the charts before major moves. The harami, for example, is an “inside candle.” In Japanese harami means, “pregnant.”  The experienced Sakata trader recognizes this as a failure in the trend and will sell. Many aggressive traders will go short. Harami is one of the most common and dependable candles in the Sakata arsenal. As the S&P plummeted 20% in early 2016,  Sakata helped long term traders hedge risk and short term traders place short positions in key markets. 

Around the year 500 BC,  SunTzu, the greatest military strategist the world has ever know wrote, “The Art of War.” The quintessential treatise on war, SunTzu was widely studied throughout Asia. His writings spread to Japan around the year 790 AD. His teachings were honored among the samurai and later exhorted and exemplified by influential shoguns. Like Sokyu Homma, the father of Sakata, Sun Tzu emphasized the importance of deception, emotion and momentum. There is no doubt that Sokyu, as a member of well educated merchant class in Japan, studied Sun Tzu. Quotes from Sun Tzu are included in this guide to help illustrate the similarities between war and investing. Deception, emotion and momentum. As a successful portfolio manager I particularly enjoyed Sun Tzu's discussion of the “sovereign,” or leader of the country. He believed the Sovereign could be a general's greatest enemy. Any portfolio manager who has had to listen to investment advice during a volatile market from a wealthy client will understand Sun Tzu's frustration. 

Most experienced traders know all of the charts depicted in this edition.  It always helps, however, to be reminded by this reference when deciding whether to stay the course, take profits or cut losses.
