  • Market Timing and Candlesticks by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Market Timing and Candlesticks by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny When to buy and what? Those are the questions that have plagued market participants the world over. Here's a proposal on how to use candlesticks to time the market. To be successful, you have to be in the right place at the right time. There are two parts to that adage, both equally important; the first refers to location, while the second relates to timing. For stock traders, this saying is especially apropos if you consider the location in question to be the selection of which stocks to buy, and the timing in question...

  • Using Candlesticks And Oscillators by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Using Candlesticks And Oscillators by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny Blending East with West, candlesticks with Western trading techniques and using the computer to boot: Combine candlesticks with oscillators. Candlestick charting has come a long way since Steve Nison introduced the Japanese technique to the Western hemisphere in the early 1990s. While its early popularity in the US had all the earmarks of a fad, it is no longer considered simply to be a fashionable way in which to view data; it has instead become a viable and important tool for the trader who previously only used tr...

  • Variable Cycle Lengths And Intraday Candlestick Analysis by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Variable Cycle Lengths And Intraday Candlestick Analysis by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny Trading methods often use different length filters for generating trades, both entries and exits. The most common filters are moving averages with different lookback periods. Here, you'll apply different filter lengths to candlestick charts by using different period lengths of candlestick charts for confirmation of bullish and bearish patterns. In ""Candlesticks and intraday market analysis,"" we looked at the signals generated using a 22-minute candlestick chart of the March 1993 Standard & Po...

  • Candlesticks And Intraday Market Analysis by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Candlesticks And Intraday Market Analysis by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny Can the much-ballyhooed candlestick method be helpful in intraday trading? To find out, Gary Wagner and Brad Matheny went through one day's trading via candlesticks for one contract and came up with some intriguing results. Traders who understand the candlestick technique are now placing greater emphasis on these patterns when making trading decisions. Many of these traders have discovered the useful factor present in candlesticks not generally found in other oscillators or indicators: candlesticks actually de...

  • Candlesticks As A Leading Indicator by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Candlesticks As A Leading Indicator by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny Most technical indicators are coincident with the market - that is, the indicators do not forecast market turns but only turn if the market turns. Certain candlestick formations, on the other hand, can forecast market reversals. Consequently, combining candlestick formations with traditional technical indicators such as oscillators should lead to better trading performance. Western technical analysis encompasses many different types of mathematical calculations, but many can best be described as lagging indicators....

  • Candlesticks And The Method Of 3 by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Candlesticks And The Method Of 3 by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny Various uses of the number three, a number of importance in Japanese culture as well as Western culture, can be seen prominently throughout candlestick technique and particularly in the form of ""Sakata's five methods."" The five methods, though more than 200 years old, can be used in current-day trading with little modification, as Wagner and Matheny show. In previous articles, we wrote about using artificial intelligence and pattern recognition to analyze candlestick charts and the importance of properly identifying ...

  • Pattern Recognition And Candlesticks by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Pattern Recognition And Candlesticks by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny Here's a look at the new order of artificial intelligence linked with the old order of candlestick charting By now, who hasn't heard of the Japanese form of charting called candlesticks? Until Steve Nison introduced candlestick charting to the West a few years ago, charting services or software programs that offered graphically displayed data in candlestick format were few and far between. Finding a guidebook or manual on interpretations of candlesticks and their patterns was almost unattainable unless one could re...

  • Candlesticks And Preserving Capital by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Candlesticks And Preserving Capital by Gary S. Wagner and Bradley L. Matheny Candlestick analysis, the Japanese charting method introduced by Steve Nison to Western technicians only a few years ago, has been slowly gaining acceptance to help the technician make profitable trading decisions. As candlesticks become more common among Western technicians, an amalgam of candlesticks and traditional Western analytical rules will emerge. An important but often overlooked trading rule that may benefit is the use of protective stop-loss techniques to preserve capital and encourage sound money manageme...
