The DeMark Indicators are now used by more than 35,000 traders. This book provides an easy-to-follow system for using the indicators to identify market turns as they happen. Author Jason Perl gives a concise introduction to thirty-nine of the DeMark Indicators, and then shows how to combine the indicators and time frames to achieve a higher probability of trading success.
I will walk you through the signature DeMark countertrend studies like TD SequentialTM and TD ComboTM, but I’ll also discuss many of Tom’s other indicators that offer an objective spin on more conventional techniques, such as moving averages, momentum oscillators, trendlines, retracements, and Elliott wave. (An index of all the indicators, listing the pages where they are described, can be found at the back of the book.)
Some have questioned whether the widespread acceptance of the DeMark indicators might diminish their effectiveness. For those people, I return to the food metaphor. Look at world-renowned chef Gordon Ramsay: He might have sold a lot of cookbooks, but his book sales have proved no threat to his restaurants.
Still, the real-time application of Tom’s indicators is by no means easy. There are no get-rich-quick shortcuts. You must work hard and be disciplined, objective, and dispassionate about the signals they generate. You must adhere rigidly to strict money-management rules. I am merely supplying you with some good tried-and-tested recipes; it’s up to you to do the cooking.
