This audio lecture along with the downloadable PDF workbook covers and discusses practical trading approaches, including stop placement and trailing levels, risk parameters, money management and the psychology of trading any market with Japanese Candlesticks. The information derived by using this approach can directly influence the day-to-day decision process, which can enhance your awareness of the markets. You will learn the basics of Japanese Candlestick charting, as well as how to combine them with Western technical tools such as trend lines, DeMark Sequential, moving averages, stochastics, and may other standard technical tools.
Developed over three hundred years ago, this method of technical analysis is still relevant and an exceptional addition to Western technical analysis. By combining both approaches to market forecasting, one is able to take the best from both schools. Gary Wagner believes that the outcome from this combination is capable of extending the benefits of any methodology.
Today's guest is Gary Wagner of The Forex Gold Forecast who shared shared part one of his unique triple-play of forex gold analysis in a blog post titled, "A New Technical Triad and Gold". In part 2 of his strategy, Gary explores what is now happening in the gold market and what we might expect before fall.
We hope you enjoys today's post and leave your comments for Gary below.
Trading the gold market might look easy when you consider that it has gone up $282 dollars in one year. However anyone involved in gold trading whether it be through Comex, Forex or Eft’s will tell you different. This is part 2 of a blog which began on May 13, 2010 (you can find that post here).

Since that time we have completed that wave, seeing gold trade to a new historical high of first 1248, then after a correction (wave 4) to a new all time high in wave 5 of 1265.
Consistent, successful trading requires a systematic approach that you are 100% confident in.

I thought it would make a good article for the Trader's Blog so I had him write down a few thoughts on trading and how he has utilized his own system.
