Interview: Steve Nison by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
Want to know something about candlestick charting? Steve Nison can
tell you. He was the first to bring Japanese candlestick charting
methods to Western trading nearly 20 years ago. He is a leading
authority on candlesticks, the author of two foundational books on the
subject, Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques and Beyond Candlesticks,
and gives seminars on the subject. Further, Nison was one of the
first to be awarded the designation of Chartered Market Technician
(CMT) from the Market Technicians Association (MTA); in addition, he
is president of CandleCharts.com, an educational and advisory website.
Can candlestick patterns be useful to traders accustomed to Westernstyle
technical analysis? It would seem so, considering they have
become a staple for Western traders in the past two decades. STOCKS &
COMMODITIES Editor Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan called Nison to discuss
that subject on January 24, 2003.
