As a long-time reader and recent subscriber, I wish to compliment you on your magazine. I look forward to receiving it each month in my quest to improve my current methods and learn new ones.

Perhaps you might consider answering this question: With the advent of after-hours and overseas trading, I am concerned that current technical analysis techniques that depend on opening and closing prices will become obsolete or ineffective. I am having success with volatility breakouts (based on average true range) and candlestick patterns, both of which require opening and closing prices, combined with traditional technical analysis. A stock may be up one point today based on yesterday’s close but down three from overseas trading. Which will become the true measure of today’s change?

Thanks again. You don’t have to change STOCKS & COMMODITIES magazine at all to keep me happy.

Most traders will use the open and close of the highest-volume market as the best indicator. For a US investor, that might be overseas! —Editor
