Clive Lambert is well known in the UK technical analysis community as an expert on candlestick charting, a member of the board of the Society of Technical Analysts (STA), and as the founder of FuturesTechs, a trading consultancy. After a general introduction to candlesticks including their construction and how they convey the psychology of the market, Lambert goes on to give detailed and in-depth descriptions of numerous candlestick patterns and formations. These include single reversal patterns (hammer, shooting star, hanging man etc) and multiple reversal patterns (engulfing patterns, dark cloud cover, piercing pattern etc) along with various continuation patterns. With clear and detailed descriptions of how to interpret each pattern and how they generate trading signals, this book also includes many examples across all markets in the form of colour CQG charts. A well written, and above all, practical guide to candlestick charting.
