Sylvain Vervoort's New Book "Capturing Profit with Technical Analysis" Released by Marketplace Books and Traders' Library

September 30, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Sylvain Vervoort, Belgian trader and expert in the field of technical analysis, has just released a brand-new book through publisher Marketplace Books and Traders' Library. "Capturing Profit with Technical Analysis: Hands-on Rules for Exploiting Candlestick, Indicator, and Money Management Techniques" is a complete reference for active technical traders. Vervoort writes in a no-nonsense, practical style and provides application examples illustrating each and every technique.

With his extensive experience in trading international markets, Vervoort has written a uniquely complete trading guide. Says expert technician Richard Arms, creator of the Arms Index, "His strength is his ability to examine a large number of technical analysis tools, explain them understandably but briefly, and then select from them the strongest features of each. These he then combines and relates to one another, using his proprietary calculations, emerging with a complete and concise trading method."

Complete details of his system "LOCKIT" will introduce traders to a number of special indicators and techniques. These include:

- a practical Elliott Wave count indicator to help estimate the direction of price and to create price targets;
- a Heikin-ashi Bollinger Bands %b indicator to show actionable divergences in price;
- his optimized ATR trailing stop methods used to protect gains;
- and specific money and risk management rules to keep traders profitable.

The most prominent feature of the book, and the piece many traders are looking forward to the most is Vervoort's brand new, proprietary indicator SVAPO ("Short term Volume and Price Oscillator"). Full details of SVAPO are included along with its programming code. In addition, the publisher has included a disk from Metastock containing the programming code for all of Vervoort's indicators and technical trading techniques free of charge in every book copy.

Sylvain Vervoort began his professional career with a degree in electronics and has been studying and using technical analysis since 1978 with the birth of the European Option Exchange (EOE) in Amsterdam. After training to become an investment and credit advisor, he has conducted many courses and presentations about technical analysis. His first book (Dutch-language only) on technical analysis was published in 2000. Since his retirement, he has been publishing articles in Stocks & Commodities magazine, trading short-term on stocks, E-mini futures, and Forex, and maintaining his website ( about trading based on the application of technical analysis.
