Knowledge increases in proportion to its use - that is, the more we teach, the more we learn. ~ Helena Petrovna Blavatsky 1876

I'll never forget the first time I read that quote.

It started me down a path over 20 years ago that I'm still on.

Candlestick charts draw a picture for us once you know how to use them. I think that Candlesticks are probably best known for spotting reversals in the current trend. While that is true it's only part of what they can tell us.

Japanese merchants (traders at the time) were using Candlesticks centuries ago. Some people today still acknowledge them as the best traders in history.

While price action tells us what the markets actually did that day, Candlesticks help tell us what the underlying emotions of the market were. For traders, this is invaluable information.

I've been an avid user of Candlesticks since the early 2000s and they have literally become one of the most important tools I have. They have saved me from disastrous trades as well as pointed out some incredibly profitable trades. Over time, they have become a trusted friend.

I think we all want to become better traders. I know I do and Candlesticks have done just that; they have made me a better trader.

Common Sense Candlesticks was written with two types of traders in mind: those that don't know a Candlestick from a fence post and those who feel like they know something about them but really want to get a much more extensive understanding of how and why they work so well. Both types of traders will benefit from this course.

Certain Candlestick patterns are much more important than others. I will focus on them, in-depth, with 100's of examples along the way on charts and the videos. I won't just show you what they look like, that's easy, but I'm going to explain to you what they mean and the psychology behind them. I think this will be enlightening for everyone.

Now you might be wondering how I learned to use Japanese Candlesticks and that's a fair question. I'm glancing over to my bookshelf now and I count eight different books and several courses (dating back to VHS days). I've been to several seminars on how to use candles and co-hosted a seminar with Steve Nison in Atlanta. Steve is the man who brought Candlesticks to the West and is responsible for having Candlestick charts on every charting software program on the market.

It took me years of study, not to mention a lot of money to learn what I know about Candlesticks. Do I know everything there is to know? Of course not, no one does. As I continue writing this course I will learn even more and so will some of you. More on that in a minute.

As I mentioned in the email you received with the link to this page, I'm currently writing this course. I've completed the first section and just doing some final edits on it. It's going to take me about six to eight weeks to complete the course. My good friend Lan Turner would call this a S.W.A.G. which means it's a scientific wild-ass guess. Hopefully, I will be able to complete the course during that time frame.

What's in the course:

  • Candlestick Construction: How and why Candles are constructed the way they are and how they will visually tell you what the traders are thinking. (two lessons & two videos)

  • The Mighty Doji: This is the most powerful single Candlestick and it's an incredibly helpful way to anticipate possible trend reversals. There are several kinds of Doji and each one tells a different story. They are my favorite Candle. (Five Lessons and five videos)

  • The Primary Reversal Patterns: 16 different Candlestick reversal patterns. There are many more Candlestick patterns that give you advance notification when the market might reverse. These patterns can advise you when you might want to lock in profits or to take a position when the trend reverses. (16 lessons, 14 videos, and a slide show presentation)

  • Secondary Reversal Patterns: 11 more trend reversal patterns explained in detail. Patterns are known around the world for giving you advance notice of when tren might change. This chapter plus the last chapter will give you 27 Candlestick reversal patterns including videos on each one. (11 lessons with 11 videos)

  • Continuation Patterns: Candles are known for their uncanny ability to give you advance notice of potential reversal signals, but In this chapter, I'm going to show you five Candlestick Continuation Patterns. This can keep you in a profitable trade or tell you when to get out and take profits. (5 lessons and 5 videos)

  • The Best Candles To Trade: Not all Candlesticks and Candlestick Patterns are created equal. I'm going to show you the very best ones to trade and exactly how you should trade them. From now on out you will look for these patterns on every chart you look at. (6 lessons and 6 videos)

  • Using Technical Patterns With Candles: Here is one of the best Chapters in the course. You have probably been using technical analysis like support and resistance, etc. for as long as you have been trading. This chapter is going to show you how to use all your technical analysis skills like chart patterns such as Wedges and Pennants, etc. but add Candlesticks to them. This is the best of both worlds. You won't believe how much this chapter will help you. (6 lessons and 6 videos)

  • Setting Targets: Candles on their own don't do a good job of telling you where the market is going to go. They do a great job of telling you when markets should reverse though. I'm going to show you how to tie my Technical Analysis of setting targets with Candlesticks. It's a very powerful combination. 4 lessons and 4 videos)

  • Using Indicators and Oscillators With Candles. We should all know the importance of using Volume and Open Interest. Most traders are also using two or more oscillators, like RSI, Momentum, Stochastics, or MACD but I'm going to show you how to use Candles right alongside the major indicators. I'm also going to show you how to use Moving Averages and Fibonacci with Candles. Also included is my course on Volume and Open Interest! (6+ lessons and 6+ videos + additional course_

Here's The Offer - But It's Limited To Just 1 More Person

Remember the quote? 

Knowledge increases in proportion to its use - that is, the more we teach, the more we learn. ~

Well, I'm going to work with 10 people during the time I'm writing the course. I already have 9 of the 10 right now, so I only want to add 1 more. These 10 people will act as my eyes and ears. What I mean is they will read the course content as I write it, and watch the videos as I post them. I've done over half of the text portions and graphics, next come the videos.


I promise that if you are one of the 10 people that work with me and give me feedback you will learn much more than you would if you were to purchase the course when it's completed.

The course will be online, right along with the other courses right here at my Website. No one else can see the course until I make it "Public". The 10 people will of course have access to it as I am writing it along with the videos.

There is also a discussion area within the course. This is where all the comments, suggestions, etc. will go. Everyone will be able to see what the others are saying. This is going to make the course much better for everyone.

As I get through each "major" section of the course I will do a private Webinar with these 10 people.

When The Course Is Released It Will Be $395.00

If someone can't do their part, that's okay but I reserve the right to replace them with someone who has more time to work with the team. They will still have access to the completed course when it's done though.

So, if you are interested in doing this you are only going to pay $195.00 for the course now and nothing else later. This is a $200.00 discount on what the final course will sell for. You will also get credit in the course for being part of the initial Team of 10. There is only 1 position left!
