From the Inside Flap

If you're the kind of savvy trader or investor who aggressively seeks profits in bull and bear markets, Big Trends in Trading: Strategies to Master Major Market Moves is for you. Price Headley, a trading expert and founder of BigTrends.com, draws on his extensive trading experience to show you how to find the best trends in the market and use proven strategies to capture profits from them. You'll learn the secret to success in any market by utilizing a trading plan that accurately identifies prevailing market conditions and then seeks out situations with the highest reward-to-risk ratios.

Big Trends in Trading explores indicators that will help you gauge investor sentiment so you can make significant gains before most other investors have even caught on to trends. You'll learn how to use:

  • The CBOE Equity Put/Call Ratio to determine upcoming turning points in the market
  • RYDEX Mutual Fund Flows to gauge the speculative sentiment among active fund switchers
  • The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) after an uptrend or decline
  • Volume indicators that include vehicles such as the Nasdaq 100 Trust (QQQ) and S&P 500 Depository Receipts (SPY)

. . . as well as services that track investor sentiment, including the Investors Intelligence (II) survey.

Big Trends in Trading also guides you through specific stock selection strategies that Headley has used successfully over his career. You'll learn how to use numerous standard technical indicators and measures such as Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD), Support and Resistance, Wilder's Average Directional Movement Index (ADX), as well as Headley's favorite proprietary indicators: Acceleration Bands and Momentum Divergence.

After a complete examination of indicators such as relative strength and growth-oriented fundamental factors, Big Trends in Trading moves from stocks to options and discusses the power of trend-based strategies for options buyers, as well as various other options strategies that will allow you to profit in all market environments. Strategies such as buying protective puts and selling covered calls can help you capture the best bang for your buck, while you manage the risks associated with your options trades.

Big Trends in Trading doesn't just teach you about the mechanics behind successful stock and options selection. This comprehensive guide goes beyond your average trading guide and addresses the key success factors often overlooked by traders. Headley guides you through the process of building a trading plan that will fit your personality, helps you identify and overcome hurdles to developing a winning mindset, and provides effective money management rules to minimize risk while maximizing your ability to profit from big trends.

Filled with powerhouse strategies, vivid case studies, and helpful charts, Big Trends in Trading will put you on the path to trading profits and investment success.

Praise for Big Trends In Trading

"Price combines the sciences of contrarian investing, technical analysis, and option valuation in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner. He has always been well known for his thorough and accurate research, and he shows why in Big Trends in Trading. Serious traders will benefit from reading this book."
Lawrence G. McMillan, President of McMillan Analysis Corp.

"Price Headley takes a dynamic view of such popular indicators as sentiment and volatility because he knows that the markets are not static but are always changing, and he shows you how to change with them. In addition, he tests the majority of his work and shows the success rates. A rare combination, and a must read for new and experienced traders alike."
–Thom Hartle, President of Market Analytics, Inc.

"This book should prove to be valuable reading for all technically oriented traders and investors. By emphasizing the ‘big trends,’ Headley stresses the importance of concentrating only in the most profitable situations–and tells you how to find them. I personally like his choice of technical indicators–and his unique way of using them. I also like his coverage of money management and the mental aspect of trading–which are just as important as the trading system employed–but too often neglected. All in all, an outstanding piece of work."
–John Murphy, author of Intermarket Technical Analysis,
The Visual Investor, and Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets,
and President of MurphyMorris, Inc.
