His main tools for finding trades include channels, tick volume, and spreads between futures and cash. Gerald Appel, a brilliant market analyst, a successful money manager, and the inventor of MACD recorded this video for us in the 1990s, but its lessons are absolutely relevant today. Appel shows his trading method for the S&P futures but stresses that it works for other markets as well.

When an investor believes a stock is overvalued and will soon drop in price, he might decide to "short" it. First, he borrows an amount of the stock, and then sells it. He waits for the stock to tank before buying back the same amount of shares at a deflated price. After returning the shares to his lender, he pockets the difference-unless any one of several hard-to-predict variables interferes, and the stock fails to drop. Since these variables are so hard to predict, short selling is difficult for even seasoned investors. It takes great talent and experience to isolate the best short ideas for falling stocks-skills Amit Kumar developed and honed over decades of market analysis and trading. This book shares his short-selling framework, built on themes common to falling stocks and the market's endemic strengths and cycles. Featuring key case studies and exclusive interviews with successful fund managers Bill Ackman (Pershing Square Capital Management) and Mark Roberts (Off Wall Street Consulting Group), Kumar shows investors how to avoid traps and profit from well-researched short ideas. Investors may not always act on short ideas, but they can avoid losses by using Kumar's framework to identify overvalued stocks. Professionals and amateur investors alike will benefit from this fundamental research approach, which transforms short selling into a long-term strategy. Amit Kumar is a senior analyst at Columbia Threadneedle Investments. He has spent nine years in equity investments and, before that, another nine years in senior roles in the technology industry. He is also an adjunct professor of finance at Rutgers Business School.

Get the word from the Master! ... the indicator discussion is heaven for tech junkies. --  John Sweeney, editor, Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities John explains the Bands in detail, from the Squeeze to the Walk to the relationship between Bands and other indicators. --  Steve Achelis, Author of Technical Analysis from A to Z This book is a wonderful, easy-to-understand explanation of his famous baby. --  Bill Griffeth, CNBC TV Anchor From the Back Cover   "All in all, Bollinger on Bollinger Bands is a gem. ...within 10 minutes of opening it, it went on my list of the five best technical analysis books ever." - Active Trader The First Comprehensive Traders' Guide to Using Bollinger Bands­­from the Man Who Created Them Includes handy Bollinger Bands reference card Over the past two decades, thousands of veteran traders have come to view Bollinger Bands as the most representative­­and reliable­­tool for assessing expected price action. Now, in the long-anticipated  Bollinger on Bollinger Bands , John Bollinger himself explains how to use this extraordinary technique to effectively compare price and indicator movements. Traders can look to this techniques-oriented book for hundreds of valuable insights, including: Analysis of the primary indicators derived from Bollinger Bands­­%b and BandWidth How traders can use Bollinger Bands to work with­­instead of against­­commonly encountered trading patterns Strategic use of Bollinger Bands in short-, mid-, and long-term trading programs Three trading systems based on Bollinger Bands The essence of successful investing is to determine when a stock's price is too high or too low and then act accordingly. While John Bollinger would be the first to argue that no techniques exist for definitively determining these levels,  Bollinger on Bollinger Bands  presents an insider's examination of the one tool that­­if its widespread popularity is an accurate judge of its effectiveness­­comes closer than anything else. Concise yet comprehensive, it is one of today's truly indispensable investment guidebooks. "The purpose of this book is to help you avoid many of the common traps investors get caught in, including the buy_low, sell-high trap, where the investor buys only to watch the stock continue downward or sells only to watch the stock continue upward. Here, the traditional, emotional approach to the markets is replaced with a relative framework within which prices can be evaluated in a rigorous manner leading to a series of rational investment decisions without reference to absolute truths. " ­­From the Introduction In the 1970s, market newcomer John Bollinger couldn't find a system of investment analysis to fit his belief that all market events exist only in relation to one another and that there are no absolutes. So he created his own. That approach­­Rational Analysis­­led to the establishment of Bollinger Bands and ensured Bollinger's spot in investment analysis history. Now, in  Bollinger on Bollinger Bands , John Bollinger explains the market conditions that led to his initial discovery, and gives readers the inside story of the development and refinement of Bollinger Bands. He then goes on to present a relative decision framework built around Rational Analysis and Bollinger Bands­­an extraordinarily powerful combination of technical and fundamental analysis that answers the question of whether prices are too high or too low for virtually any security or market environment. By understanding how to incorporate Bollinger's techniques into their own investment strategy, investors will greatly increase their ability to ignore often-costly emotions and arrive at rational decisions supported by both the facts and the underlying market environment.  Bollinger on Bollinger Bands  provides: The first  authoritative  examination of this revolutionary technical analysis tool Three simple systems for implementing Bollinger Bands Innovative methods for clarifying patterns­­and analyzing time frames and moving averages The key to effective investment analysis is to­­as much as possible­­eliminate emotion and approach each trade on its technical and fundamental merits alone. Since their introduction, few analytical techniques have helped investors do this better or more consistently than Bollinger Bands.  Bollinger on Bollinger Bands  provides tips, guidelines, and rules for incorporating the bands into virtually any investment strategy. It is a watershed book, written by the only man truly qualified to claim a comprehensive knowledge of the topic­­John Bollinger himself.
