Beyond Candlesticks provides step-by-step instructions, detailed charts and graphs, and clear-cut guidance on tracking and analyzing results--everything you need to pick up these sharp new tools and take your place at the cutting edge of technical analysis.

The organization is impeccable . reading it was a pleasure." --Commodity Traders Consumer Report

Product Description

From the Publisher

Known internationally as ``The Father of Candlesticks,'' Nison reveals more Japanese charting methods which have never been published or used in the Western world. Describes kagi, renko and three-line break charts. Provides a brief review of candlesticks and previously unavailable candlestick patterns that can be used in equities, fixed-income, foreign exchange and overseas markets.

From the Inside Flap

Beyond Candlesticks New and powerful Japanese charting secrets revealed for today’s traders and investors In 1990, Steve Nison introduced traders in the West to a powerful analytical tool that had long given Japanese Investors a competitive edge. Now, with this groundbreaking new book, the "Father of Candlesticks" further revolutionizes technical analysis with an entire collection of stunningly effective Japanese techniques. In Beyond Candlesticks, Steve Nison unveils the mysteries of four more of Japan’s most closely guarded financial secrets—Kagi, Renko, Three-Line Break charts, and the disparity index—incredibly versatile techniques for forecasting and tracking market prices and buying and selling periods. Completely self-contained and requiring no prior experience with Japanese charting techniques, Beyond Candlesticks:
  • Introduces Kagl, Renko, and Three-Line Break charts—powerful non-time series charting techniques never before seen In the West
  • Explores the exotic twists and turns of the disparity index—a Japanese secret more exact and timely than its Western cousin, moving averages
  • Takes you step-by-step through each charting technique with the help of nearly 200 illustrations, dozens of detailed real-world examples, and clear-cut guidelines on how to use them In your day-to-day trading and Investing
  • Demonstrates how these techniques can be used on equities, futures, fixed-in-come, foreign exchange, and overseas markets
  • Explains how they can be merged with candlesticks and traditional Western techniques to create powerful new hybrids
But that’s not all. In addition to Instructing readers in these exciting new charting techniques, Nison also takes us deeper inside the mysteries of candlesticks than ever before. Expanding his coverage beyond the futures markets that were the focus of his 1991 classic, Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques, Nison describes candlestick patterns that can be applied to stocks, bonds, and foreign exchange. He also demonstrates new ways in which candlesticks alone or in conjunction with traditional Western techniques, can be adapted to virtually any trading, investing, or hedging strategy. Affording Western readers an unprecedented opportunity to acquaint themselves with these powerful, centuries-old techniques, Beyond Candlesticks is a resource that no trader, broker, analyst, or Investor can afford to be without.

1.0 out of 5 stars Review session June 7 2000
By A Customer
If you already own "Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques" by the same author, then this is going to be alot of review for you. Most of the book is just much of the same information contained in aforementioned. Unless you are seeking a heavy dose of more of the same, no need to purchase this one, stick to the first book, which should serve you well as a reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really tells you how to use candlesticks July 16 2003
Steve Nison goes through all of the major Candlestick patterns here. And, he shows you close calls as well. This is great, because the real world does not always have what is in the pretty picture in your book. Nison adds to the value by showing you how to use Candlesticks in conjunction with classic Western Technical analysis. If only he'd added a chapter on Elliott Wave Theory and Candlesticks (lots of reversal Candles at the end of waves). Buy this one instead of his first book if you are only buying one.

5.0 out of 5 stars CandleSticks Work May 23 2000
Beyond CandleSticks is one of the more helpful books in truly explaining the underlying meaning of multiple days of trading accompanied by volume. This book can significantly help you lock in profits when used correctly by indicating when a stock has topped or bottomed out. Make sure you select a good charting system that assists with the user interface, like Telescan, which actually lists the acronym of the trading pattern above the element displayed. This function helps save time when analyzing many stocks at any time. I highly recommend this for options or short-term traders. Candlestick charting is not just a charting system it's a hobby. I have truly enjoyed buying and selling stocks more since reading and learning more about this Technique. Good luck to all you traders out there.

By GaryS
I can't put this one down. It is a great book that goes into great detail to explain candlesticks and how they represent market forces and trends. If you are doing any day trading at all, to ignore candlesticks is to leave money on the table. I highly recommend this book to all day traders. The charts are fantastic and there are a million illustrations that help you understand how the candlesticks work. Just a great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to his earlier book April 10 1999
By A Customer
The first part of this book covers some main parts his best selling classic book on candlestick back in the early 1990s with some new insights. The second part of the book explains some new charting techniques only then known in Japan. These techinques I found are quite adequate if used with candlesticks but nothing revolutionary as I have expected. Candlestick charting is still the fundamental tool used for trading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Happy Candlestick May 17 2014
Please disregard everything written about line break charts when it comes to trading. There is no correct information on the subject in that section. It was the start of bad information on the charting method. Don't call it three line breaks. You will never make money using that number.
