Book Description

Applicable to investors in all markets!

Today's sideways stock markets — markets that have hit both a floor and a ceiling — are likely to be with us until the middle of this decade or later. But you don't have to feel disoriented, according to Keith G. Richards. In his new book on investing, he shows you how to think and act like a technical analyst by understanding the basics of market realities — from phases to trends to formations and cycles. Sideways will help you profit from a financial reality that others are unsuccessfully fighting or fleeing.

Sideways makes sense of market gyrations for investors, and is a battle-tested hypothesis to boot. Keith has developed and adhered to this process in concert with a market very unlike what occurred from 1982 to 1999. Readers will do well to learn from the lessons provided in this illuminating book. I certainly have.” —JAIME PURVIS, EVP, National Accounts, Horizons Exchange Traded Funds.

“It's not easy to profit during the sideways periods experienced by North American equity markets during the past 11 years, but Keith Richards points the way, with his firm grasp of technical analysis and his equally firm understanding of the four phases of the stock market cycle.Buy this book and memorize it — you'll be richer for it.”— HILARY DOYLE, Writer/Co-Creator, BNN and CTV's Stock & Awe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sideways by Keith Richards - Book Review Jan. 4 2012
Well I just finished reading Sideways by Keith Richards. I made some notes along the way and would like to share my thoughts with you.

First, in all fairness I will say that I have corresponded with Keith in the past via his blog, which I find very interesting and resourceful, as well as following him on BNN and in Investor's Digest of Canada. In saying so, I was happy to get my hands on his new book.

I am glad to report that Keith has set the tone of this book in the same way he did with his last, SmartBounce. In this book, I have found the principles he covers are nothing new, but it is the way that he goes about explaining these principles that sets this book aside from the rest. I have found that this book will be of great interest to any person who (like me) has asked to him or herself "Why did the stock that I just bought enter into a downward spiral, and worse yet, why did it take off like a rocket after I sold it". Taking the principles that Keith puts forward, cleverly keeping the non-professional investor in mind, will assure that you will have a better understanding on how and why the market moved with or against you.

Taking the mantra "The trend is your friend until the end" into consideration, Sideways go into the working model of the stock market, showing clean descriptive chart example's that will not have you scrambling to find magnifying glass. It is as simple as understanding the four phases of the market cycle, and as complicated as you want it be. Regardless if your trading for the day, week, or year, after reading this book you will have a better understanding of why the market works the way it does. Also putting into perspective what the crowd is doing, and the importance of volume analysis, something that Keith explains very well.

This was a solid boiled down easy to read and understand book that covered the 'major' technical info you need to understand. With just 110 pages it contained no fluff, just the essential but critical facts that you normally would have to read hundreds of pages of in most technical books. Very well done. I've read that the best books are about 100 pages long and over time I've found those books to be the most informative to read on any subject. This book quickly and simply captures important technical info that normally takes a very long time to grasp in an easy to understand common sense manner. To bad all good technical books couldn't reduce them down to "Just the facts Ma'am" type of reading.

Ideal for those of us who are looking to get grounded in Technical Analysis. Richards obviously has a strong base in this concept and explains it clearly and simply in detail. A good read and reread.

Kieth Richards, thank-you for writing this book.
It contained the knowledge that I needed to demystify those stock charts that once boggled my mind.

This book puts together a package of the most essential concepts and tools of technical analysis, and delivers it in no-nonsense and concise language that makes it very easy to learn. It does not intimidate like some books that at times can take the novice too deep into the weeds through every conceivable concept. Instead, it guides the reader through only the most essential topics and explains the analysis that the reader can apply to trading in today's sideways market.
