I've been following the Potential Breakout and Outstanding Breakout threads for a while now. Great reading and I use it as a reference towards learning to read chart patterns. I haven't bought any positions from it because I don't want to fall into the habit of using other's work. I want to learn to do it myself. Though there has been a few of crackers that would have been very nice buying.
I was in Dymocks today looking to get a book on charting. Anyone read 'Charting for Dummies'? If so, any good as an intro book? There are soooo many to choose from... I ended up not getting one because I didn't know which to get!
Besides searching through charts one at a time. Are there charting softwares that have a 'scanner' that bring up these potential patterns (breakouts and bullish flags)? If you are practised at these patterns and you don't mind sharing your wisedom. How do you search for them?
I'm unexperienced at this and everything kind of looks like a pattern to me!
