Chat With Traders
The science of technical analysis, verse the art of trading with Brian Shannon of AlphaTrendsOctober 25, 2018
This weeks guest is Brian Shannon, who first and foremost is a professional trader, whose involvement with the market dates back well over 20 years.
He’s also the author of the highly regarded book, Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes. And thirdly, Brian is the founder of AlphaTrends, an educational company focused on teaching traders how to navigate the market successfully.
For the most part Brian is a swing trader, with the occasional day trade in the mix. During the interview Brian discusses both approaches, and gives a few pointers that may help you to discover the right timeframe for your own trading.
We also talk about understanding the psychology of market participants within well-known patterns, the two indicators that Brian uses most often (one of them being VWAP – Volume Weighted Average Price), and Brian also walks us through the 4 stages of a market cycle: accumulation, markup, distribution & decline.
So all in all, Brian hit on plenty of great topics, and I feel like you’re really going to enjoy the insight he shares with us!
