What Will You Learn In The Course ?

1 – Introduction to Trading (61:01)

Trading is a difficult business. Learn why most traders fail and what you can do to be successful. An honest look at what it takes for success in trading.

2 – Chart Construction (12:52)

The most important elements on a chart are; Price, Volume and Time. This discussion will focus on how they interact to provide clues for creating a trading plan. Candle stick chart construction, interpretation and their short comings are also studied.

3 – The Four Stages (30:47)

Just like the business cycle, the markets have a cyclical rhythm. We study the four stages of; Accumulation, Markup, Distribution and Decline to gain an understanding of when to; Anticipate, Participate, Exit or Avoid a stock position.

4 – Support and Resistance (22:42)

Support and resistance are the building blocks of how trends are created. It is the constant ebb and flow of supply and demand which creates levels of support and resistance that we can plan our trades around.

5 – Trend Trading (28:56)

To profit in directional trades in the market, we need to recognize the low risk, high probability trend areas where we can enter a trade from the best chance of profits.

6 – Volume Analysis (23:13)

Volume is the cause and price is the effect. Trading volume is the fuel for market activity and we will discover how the price/volume relationship is supposed to work and what it means when it doesn’t!

7 – Moving Averages (58:24)

A moving average can help us quickly identify a trend as well as higher probability areas where we may consider entering a trend. We will discuss the most important moving averages to study on many different timeframes. Understand the psychology of why moving averages cannot be ignored on a price chart.

8 – Trend Alignment (29:59)

Trends are ambiguous without a reference to time. A stock may be in a longer term uptrend but is crashing on a shorter term timeframe. This trend confusion can lead to sloppy trading. Learn to focus on the best trade setups when trends are aligned!

9 – Short Sales & Short Squeezes (39:30)

Bear markets are a fact of life. If you want to do more than sit out a decline, this section covers what short selling is, when to initiate a short position, how to control risk and more. We also discuss the differences between a “structural” and a “knee jerk” short squeeze, how to recognize them and use them to profit!

10 – Risk & Money Management (36:10)

Any successful market approach is rooted in risk management. Risk management is job #1! Learn how to identify entry levels, price objective and stop levels. This section will help you learn the methods that professionals use to hold their winners and cut their losers!

11 – Order Entry and Level 2 (29:16)

Saving a few pennies per share on a trade may be trivial to a casual participant but to a professional who trades often, those savings can add up to a significant amount over the course of a year. Understand how to place your orders for maximum efficiency!

12 – Exit Strategies (42:02)

Anyone can buy a stock, but do you have a strategy to get out? Starting with where to enter stops on your trades so a loser is not allowed to spiral out of control, we discuss 6 other exit strategies to help you maximize your profits!

13 – News in Trading (17:21)

It is said “If you trade on the news, you will one day be delivering it.” News can and does act as a motivator of volume and thus price change. Learn why it is more important to monitor the reaction to the news than what the news might say.

14 – Gap Strategies (30:39)

When prices fail to overlap from the prior days range, it forms a “gap” on the chart. Learn what causes a gap and how to trade them. We will discuss strategies for how to enter a stock which has gapped and perhaps more importantly, how to handle an opening gap and puts your stock in a large losing position.

15 – Fibonacci and Pivot Levels (19:12)

This is as esoteric we get in the technical analysis of this course. Pay particular attention to pivot levels if you are a day trader!

16 – The Business of Trading (44:49)

Trading is not a game or hobby, if you treat it as one, you will have tax losses to show. How to approach your trading like true professionals do.

17 – Trading with the Anchored VWAP (43:39)

The Anchored Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) combines: price, volume and time to shows whether buyer or sellers are in control of price action from any point we choose. This tool can help you to objectively recognize where the beginning and end of a trend on any timeframe!

Brian’s book is an instant classic.

“Most technical analysis books focus on pattern recognition, but this book explains WHY markets move and HOW patterns form as a result, and without this understanding it is impossible to see deeper into the charts where the real value exists—this most excellent aggregation of insights takes you deep, real deep, into the heart of the matter where profitability exists. Brian’s book is an instant classic.”

Brian stresses the two keys to successful trading — discipline and finding a trading style that suits your style and personality. Without those two concepts, most traders fail. With that in mind, this book has several excellent technical analysis systems, but the chapter on Risk Management is really the key. All traders should find this book to be useful and rewarding.

Choosing to learn from Brian Shannon was the very best thing I ever did to jumpstart my career and trading success.

“When I first began trading several years ago, I knew very little about trading. Choosing to learn from Brian Shannon was the very best thing I ever did to jumpstart my career and trading success. Almost every time I speak publicly about my trading journey, I credit Brian with providing a solid structured approach to the discipline of trading. He taught me a lot about making money consistently in the markets – but even more importantly to me, how to keep it.“

DO NOT invest one cent before you read this book.

With the release of Technical Analysis using Multiple Time Frames, disciplined investors now have a new tool to help decipher the often complex art/science of charting the markets. The cherry on top of this wonderful book is his use of full color charting and tables. DO NOT invest one cent before you read this book.

Andrew Horowitz
Money Manager & Author of The Disciplined Investor

Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes is a book that should be on every trader’s shelf, especially when just starting out.

“The highlight chapter for me personally was 8 where Brian breaks down trends which is my all-time favorite investment strategy. The chapter alone had 14 different fully colored stock charts all highlighting different aspects of trend trading. The flow is very easy to follow and even being a trader for over six years I still learned something new. Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes is a book that should be on every trader’s shelf, especially when just starting out.”

“That’s right, I want you to pick up a copy right the hell now and read in awe as Shannon explains how it’s not just about memorizing chart patterns— anybody who tells you that is a typically useless finance freak. It’s infintely more important to understand how variables, players and emotions align to create shockingly similar, repetitive, and, more importantly, predictable chart patterns. More importantly, Shannon delves into the steps necessary to make sure you stay disciplined—whether that means cutting losses quickly, using stop losses, waiting for pattern confirmation etc.In short, you need to read this book, if you don’t, you’re just ignoring a greatly useful resource and that’s not cool.”

Alphatrends is a no-brainer in terms of value for traders of all skill levels who are teachable and seeking improved results…

“Overall, this is an excellent book, one that I recommend to any trader that is interested in technical analysis. I endorse the book enough so that I have joined the affiliate program and have placed image ads on my blog. I don’t promote too many items on this blog other than books from Amazon but this is surely a product I feel comfortable recommending. Most importantly, the book is not filled with fluff or any unnecessary fat which I believe is its best feature”

“I always believed Brian Shannon had the “Right Stuff.” Whether it was his stock picks, his eclectic blog posts or when he would shower us with his market intelligence in our chatroom. Now comes his outstanding book, “Technical Analysis using Multiple Timeframes.” This is a subject that is very dear to me and I practice it every day in our own firm proprietary trading. You might say, and in a way, Brian and I are kindred spirits. But, I must call this masterpiece a true Grand Slam.”

“Brian is a gem. His simple (who’d have thought!) approach to day and swing trading is how it should be taught. He teaches a few basic mantras that, combined with a disciplined risk management approach are all that one needs. The only hard part is managing your own emotions, and he even helps with that with a bit of tough love when it is deserved. The chat room is the best I have come across. No nonsense advice, identification of low risk opportunities and constant guidance and instruction will have you “making the trade your own” in no time. His whole approach from the daily videos, to the midday update and chat room instruction is the only thing you need to become a more disciplined and profitable trader. Brian truly is unique in my view and well worth the dollars for his service!”

“Over the years I have become more of an investor than trader, but that has not reduced the importance of risk, psychology and money management, all of which I get from Brian’s book and website as I peruse the charts and his technical analysis skills. The book is a great read and combined with his daily website updates you have all the technical analysis ideas and coaching you need to make money consistently.”

Brian’s chapters addressing of how markets react at various stages from Accumulation to Decline was brilliant.

“Time is one of the most mostly ignored topic for many technical analysts as the Price is more evident and interested piece of information to act on. Brian’s ability to convey how to weave and focus multiple time-frames into trading is an excellent presentation. This book also addresses some of the key topics for traders like ‘How and When to Buy’ and ‘How and When to Sell’. I thought Brian’s chapters addressing of how markets react at various stages from Accumulation to Decline was brilliant.”

“In my opinion, Brian’s book is an excellent resource because he is great instructor. Unlike many books on trading written by traders who frankly have a difficult time explaining their methods, Brian shows his skills by breaking down relatively complex ideas in a straightforward manner. Ultimately this makes his book particularly good for traders who are just starting out on the learning curve and those who’ve found other trading books too complex or difficult to implement in the real world.”

“Reading Brian Shannon’s TECHNICAL ANALYSIS USING MULTIPLE TIMEFRAMES will have a profound impact on your trading experience. He clearly explains the market structure so you can discern clarity from what otherwise might appear random. The result is an outline of a trading approach that can be successfully applied regardless of your particular timeframe preference. I found it particularly rewarding to see his emphasis on risk management. The chapter on trading tips reflect Brian’s deep understanding of the market. His book is on the top shelf of my library.”
