Read A Trading Book

Have you ever read a book on trading or investing? If you have read more than one of them, you will notice that they usually regurgitate the same old technical analysis. Most books and academics themselves follow the traditional route for technical analysis. The problem is that if that traditional method worked so well, you could be expected to read those books and make a lot of money.

One of the common trading tools that is suggested in most trading books is the moving average. But have you ever read a book that says to buy below an upward sloping moving average? No they say you buy above an upward sloping average and sell below a downward sloping average. Look at the opportunities you would miss by doing that.
