Editor's note: The following letters are reproduced from Technical Analysis of STOCKS & COMMODITIES, The Traders' Magazine.



I'm an account executive with the Orion Futures Group in Tampa, FL, and we have a handful of clients who enjoy trading. I was wondering if you already have an article or would publish an article about candlestick trading. It's difficult to find learning materials on the symbols. If you offer something that defines candlesticks, I would appreciate it. I recommend that traders subscribe to your periodical because of the depth with which you study and analyze markets. Great job!

Eric Crenshaw, via E-mail

See page 41 of this issue for an article on charting basics. It includes an explanation of the candlestick method for charting stocks.

Books on candlestick charting we'd recommend include Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques (New York Institute of Finance, 1991) and Beyond Candlesticks (John Wiley, 1994), both by Steve Nison.-- Editor



I am interested in learning more about what traders do, how they make money, and becoming a home trader at some point. Do you have any suggestions for beginner reading material that would explain the basics? How about something that would enable me take part in some active trading?

Jason W. Jones, via E-mail
