When the smart money trades the securities markets, they leave behind financial footprints. Combine enough footprints together and you have a trail to follow.

Within the pages of this book, you’ll learn how to identify chart patterns, supported by easy-to-understand performance statistics describing how well a pattern works, what the failure rate is, and what special quirks suggest better future performance. You’ll discover how often a stop loss order will trigger at various locations within a chart pattern, how the chart pattern’s performance has evolved over the past three decades, and how to profit from failure by trading busted patterns.

This broadened and revised Third Edition offers investors the most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to this popular method of market analysis.
