We recently read Brian Shannon's new book, Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes: Understand Market Structure and Profit from Trend Alignment. As the title of the book suggests, Brian is a believer in trend trading. For those unfamiliar with Brian's work, he does some unique analysis on his Alpha Trends blog site where he has done a great job of combining YouTube and technical analysis in order to analyze and explain his thoughts regarding specific stocks. We definitely suggest taking a look at his site.
In the book, Brian does a good job of clearly explaining his methods and approaches to technical analysis without the incoherent jargon typically associated with some books. He also highlights numerous examples using clear and coherent charts, making this book is an excellent resource for anyone looking to add to their investment 'toolkit'. Brian closes the book with a chapter titled, "Trading Tips and Truisms To Think About". Our favorite on the list? "Smart Money" doesn't always do smart things with their money.
