Real trading strategies for making a killing in today's volatile markets Advanced Swing Trading reveals the strategies used by George Soros, Warren Buffett and other high-profile traders to reap whirlwind profits in today's volatile markets. With the demise of day trading, traders are searching for new methods of exploiting the unprecedented volatility of post-9/11 securities markets. The most successful of these methods so far has been swing trading, a powerful technical approach that allows traders to profit from shorter-term price moves, ranging from several days to a couple of months. In Advanced Swing Trading, veteran trader and leading trading coach, John Crane clearly describes his original Action/Reaction swing trading system. With the help of numerous real-world examples, Crane clearly delineates his system and shows readers how to use it to consistently to gain big returns in even the shakiest of markets. John Crane (Loveland, CO) is the founder of Traders Network, a firm providing brokerage service and educational training products for smart investors. His monthly columns have appeared in Futures Options magazine, and articles about his trading strategies have appeared in Barron's, Consensus, and The Wall Street Journal.

In Advanced Swing Trading, John Crane, a veteran trader and cofounder of Traders Network, discusses his work with Action/Reaction trading theory, and illustrates a whole new way of using time, price, and patterns to predict, identify, and trade future market swings. Chapter by informative chapter, you'll be introduced to the concepts that encompass this proven method, including:

  • Market behavior
  • Reaction swings
  • Swing trading reaction swings
  • The Reaction cycle
  • Action and reaction lines
  • Entering and exiting trades
  • Reversal dates
  • Long-term versus short-term trends
  • And much more

Filled with practical advice from a seasoned veteran, real-world examples, and informative charts and graphs, Advanced Swing Trading provides a comprehensive look at the art of swing trading. This valuable book offers clear, step-by-step guidance that will allow you to apply the swing trading methodology to any portfolio and improve your bottom line.
