TR&NDS TRAILING STOP TECHNIQUE
I have read Sylvain Vervoort’s article on Tr&nds (“Trailing Resistance &nd Support Stops”) in the July 2009 Stocks & Commodities and found it very helpful.
KEEPING IT STREAMLINED
Thank you to Sylvain Vervoort for sharing his work in your magazine. I am interested in buying his book when it is available.
I started with technical analysis as a broker in 2001. Over the years I started my own investment firm and have been using AmiBroker. (Amibroker provides programming in your Traders’ Tips section.) I’ve gotten very adept at technical analysis but sometimes feel a lack of efficiency. I think this comes from having so much information and knowledge that it becomes difficult to know what information to use. I like Vervoort’s approach because he boils it down to things that work and doesn’t pay attention to the rest.
I’ve studied cycle analysis in depth. I ordered a copy of the seminar that J.M. Hurst put together in the early 1970s and studied it thoroughly. Also love the work that John Ehlers has done in that vein.
Very much looking forward to knowing more about Vervoort’s systems.
