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.

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!

What is unique about New Trading Dimensions is that Bill Williams teaches traders and investors how to maximize their profits by staying with and adding to winning positions. Of equal, if not greater importance, the book provides a series of sell signals so that you have guide lines for taking profits and cutting losses when appropriate.
We liked New Trading Dimensions so much that we started a daily newsletter that uses many of the strategies in New Trading Dimensions. We tell our clients to buy the book and read it carefully.
New Trading Dimensions teaches you how to trade stocks that are emerging from good bases (the "sleeping alligator." But it does not tell you how to find such stocks. We scan over 8000 stocks every day looking for stocks with apprpriate sleeping alligators. We then help our clients to identify fractal buy and fractal short signals and subsequent add and sell signals for the stocks on our list.

This is the second of Bill's books and only further refines his trading methods. I've read both books, taken the home study course, and also done a private tutorial with Bill....the net result is that not only has my trading improved, but also my whole outlook on life. Bill spends alot of time on the psychological aspect of trading, being in focus, etc. and demonstrates that we (ourselves) are the biggest problem in trading for profit. I've seen some of the previous reviews on his books where people trash his "downhome" style prose, but I have to come to the conclusion that they have not truly looked into the real content of his methods. In other words, if you're just looking for the "Magic indicator" or the current "Quick buck" scam, then there are hundreds of other books or courses you can purchase. But, if you want to spend some worthwhile study time.....this is the best system that I've come across in my 20+ years of floor trading! (...and trading has truly become FUN for me because of Bill Williams).

By A Customer on Feb. 7 2000
Format: Hardcover
The 1st 2 chapters are somewhat of ramble where the author describes the "metaphysics" of trading. Still some good ideas are offered. The book references chaos theory, and leaves it up to the reader to believe whether "supercomputers" were used in formulating the various trading methods (the author wants to come across as an applied mathemetician, but he sure looks like a stock trader to me). There isn't any obvious connection with Chaos Theory - but let's be honest: what would we really do with it if it was there?
I give the book 5 stars, and I'd give it 10 if they were available. The reason is that despite the weak link between the title and content, the trading methodologies do work. Both in backtestng and in 2 months real time, I've found the author's systems to be a perfect filter and trigger for a short term trading system. He states a goal of 10%/month, but when these filters & axioms are correctly combined with a good momentum system, much more is a probable result. There's better written & more informative books out there for less money, but this author does have the "Holy Grail" of stock trading. A set of filters, axioms, and methods which are the "missing link" for any trading system which is based upon conventional indicators.

The fact that Wiley would publish this book and allow the auther to abuse the word chaos in the title is an affront to the intelligence of traders and aspiring traders everywhere. The only thing that this book has to do with Chaos is the author's rambling style. As for the content, there is the basice con artist structure: Chapter 1: Pep Rally -- It's so easy to get rich Chapter 2: Let Me Try to Talk Above Your Head So You Think I'm Really Smart Chapter 3: I Realize That You're Too Stupid and Lazy to Understand My Compex Theories, That's OK, Just Order My Software. Chapter 4-->10 A bunch of lagged moving averages, oscillators and simple breakout rules each with a special curve-fitted example to awe you. So What?
What's pitifull is that this guy's attempt at a basic explanation of Chaos Theory serves nothing but to expose his shallow understanding of the subject.
Wiley should be ashamed.
For a good book related to Chaos Theory that is approachable try How Nature Works by Peter Bak. Though not specifically applicable to trading, this book has some great new ideas on the patterns we see across all areas of nature.
