A powerful new way to navigate today's unprecedented market conditions

"Bill Williams' pioneering application of chaos theory to the financial markets is leading technical analysis into the twenty-first century and beyond. New Trading Dimensions presents a complete, highly original, and intriguing trading method with clear, detailed illustrations, and challenging practice pages. Bill's wisdom, technical expertise, and skillful teaching style make this a revolutionary must-have new book for stock and commodity traders." -Tom Bierovic, Product Manager for User Education, Omega Research, Inc.

"Bill hits the nail on the head. The essence of successful trading is a combination of knowing who you are and allowing the market to reveal its secrets. Bill Williams has the gift of explaining these concepts better than anyone I know. This is a compelling work that belongs in every trader's library." -George Angell, author, Profitable Day-Trading with Precision

"Bill Williams is one of the great educators of our time. He freely shares his knowledge and experience in this inexpensive book. This book is required reading for all market technicians. The principles are sound as we have tested them with our software." -John Hill, President, Futures Truth, Co.

"Bill Williams has always been an excellent teacher, taking complex terms and concepts and translating them into a clear, commonsense approach to trading. This book provides a complete trading program that reflects Bill's years of wisdom and experience in the marketplace." -Darrell Jobman, Editorial Consultant and former Editor-in-Chief of Futures magazine

As today's market environment continues to change dramatically, more and more traders are discovering that traditional forecasting methods-pure technical analysis and fundamental analysis-just do not work. Sending out contradictory messages, these opposing schools of thought leave investors baffled about the future direction of the market, and consequently, at a loss as to how to tailor their trading systems. As a result, many practitioners have now turned to a new forecasting "cocktail" that combines traditional charting methodologies with chaos theory and human psychology. In this groundbreaking book, Bill Williams, a seasoned trader at the forefront of this dynamic new approach, explains exactly what it is, how it works in current stock and commodity markets, and how to use it to your advantage.

Based on human nature rather than the vagaries of the market, the new trading dimension works on the premise that we trade not the market, but our own belief system. By assessing what your personal biases are, you can determine how they influence your ultimate success-or failure-and then adjust your trading strategies accordingly.

Written by an expert in the field who has been featured in Futures, Worth, Success, and other prominent publications, New Trading Dimensions takes the latest in scientific knowledge about human behavior and applies it directly to the fields of stock and commodity investing and trading. With straightforward guidelines, it shows you how to adopt the right attitude toward the behavior of the market and use the right tools (ATTITOOLS) for profitable trading. Packed with practice exercises, specific applications to different types of investments, and a detailed review of important market signals, here's where you'll learn how to:
* Discover what the market wants and align your own beliefs with the direction of the market
* Apply chaos theory to trading and investing
* Use Williams' "Market Alligator" for analyzing and profiting from the markets
* Employ a multidimensional trading program that includes such tools and techniques as fractals, oscillators, AC signals, psychological zones, and balance lines
* Exit trades in a timely fashion to reap high returns

Drawing on the author's more than forty years of experience as both a successful trader and seasoned trainer, this invaluable guide offers a breakthrough method that has proven its ability to turn investors into consistent winners.

From the Publisher

Traders and sophisticated investors are increasingly finding that traditional market forecasting methods, such as fundamental analysis or technical analysis are not working as effectively in today's market conditions. Fundamental analysts have research to prove that the market is ready for a downturn, yet technical analysts provide research for the contrary. Which research is correct? As a result of these contradictions, many traders and investors have turned to a new source of approach to the markets which combines scientific theories and investment psychology. The reasoning behind this new market forecast method is that since the markets act differently now, there should be a new way to view them, as well. Bill Williams is one of the trainers who has combined these elements of traditional technical charting methodology with chaos theory and human psychology. In New Trading Dimensions, Williams discusses, in detail, this new methodology.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can Not Recommend Jan. 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Nothing more than an infomercial for his business - selling software to support the methods. The "fractal" method that he presents appears to be backwards i.e. sell an up market, buy a down market. Also he discusses his trend lines by color and all of the plates are in grey scale. You can figure it out but it does take away from the desired effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars most useful book on trading I have read in my life March 26 2003
By valdi25
Format:Hardcover
I have seen there are few people criticizing the use of chaos theory in this book. I have read other books on chaos, probably they are more complex, closer to the theory, but apply them to the market if you can.
This book emphasizes on knowing yourself and then the market. My experience is it took me from being not consistent winner to a profitable trader. I can also look to the market as a friendly place for the rest of my life. No more struggle, just flow.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this book! March 10 2003
Format:Hardcover
Williams uses big words (fractals, chaos, quantum mechanics) to impress the reader, but says nothing meaningful.I found this book a waste of time and money

1.0 out of 5 stars Think before you buy this book..... Nov. 30 2002
Format:Hardcover
When I first read this book (it was my second book on trading) I thought it was the Holy Grail and that trading would be the easiest thing in the world. It is now 1 year since I read it and I must admit that I have read over 15 more books on trading since then....today I can only say that the techniques outlined in the book are far too simple and too far away from the real world. When you code the systems you will find out that none of them are working and personally I don't think that Bill Williams has ever made a single dime trading...at least not with the systems outlined on the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Methodology March 30 2002
Format:Hardcover
The book walks you step by step on how and what to look for when using Dr. Williams methodology. He reveals all his indicators in the book, so if you can't afford his software/course, you can simply add it to your favorite charting software!
After reading some reviews here, I have found two extremes in regards to both his books. Not enough theory of chaos or "just a simple little trend following system". If you're looking for the scientfic version of trading chaos, don't get this book. If you felt you've read your share of "trend methodology", skip it. But if you are interested in implementing a robust trading system, and one that works, get this book now!
Few of the reviewers seem tied up in semantics on whether it is or it isn't a "trend trading system" or "not really chaos theory". None however mention anything remotely about making money trading futures!
Do yourself a favor and forget those reviews(unless you happen to fall into the two categories mentioned)and buy the book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Trading Resource Feb. 11 2002
Format:Hardcover
I just finished programming the entire system into Tradestation 2000i, I double checked it by checking it against his own proprietory software to make sure it works and I can tell you that if you choose the right securities to trade based on the sleeping alligator that this is an excellent system or at least an excellent start of a system. This book uses a proven methodology however you won't be able to tell that if you just trade it straight, you have to use all the resources mentioned in the book to fully appreciate it, please don't just mechanically program it into a computer and go by those results but use the tools or Atti-tools fully.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fractals in review Sept. 25 2001
Format:Hardcover
As an avid student of Chaos Theory and Fractals, I found this book to be similar to his other one. Williams eludes to using fractals in his analysis but makes no reference to fractal dimensions, Koch curves, monsters or any of the original theories as proposed by Mandelbrot. He does present some scaling principles and their application to Elliot Waves, but this is under the assumption that the Elliot Wave is correct or that you believe in it. I do agree with some of the money flow theories Williams proposes, which is probably the most clearly explained and substantiated part of his trading theory. For a more scientific approach to fractal analysis, I recommend "Fractals and Scaling in Finance" by Mandelbrot and for software, "Fractal Finance" by Tetrahex. Both of these follow a similar system, although Fractal Finance does use a MACD which appears similar to Williams.
