E-Book Review: Consolidation Breakout Signals on the Forex Market by Duane Shepherd

Consolidation Breakout Signals on the Forex Market by Duane Shepherd Duane Shepherd is a currency analyst and trader who is running a website drfxtrading.blogspot.com. He specializes in swing trading, and his main method of entry into the market appears to be consolidation breakouts. He has written several e-books based on his trading method, and he generously shared one of them with our website's visitors.

Consolidation Breakout Signals on the Forex Market is an introductory piece into the technique described as a consolidation breakout by the author. Consolidation breakouts are a more general term for the chart pattern breakouts such as the ones often used by me (e.g., ascending triangles, rectangles, flags, etc.)

One good thing about this e-book is that it really gives some basic ideas for building your own trading strategy. The problem is that it does not explain many of the terms it uses. It also fails to justify the proposed system by using some backtest results or anything similar. Another problem would be a proper exit from the positions generated by such exit signals. The e-book does not provide any detail on stop-loss or take-profit levels.

Overall, if you are interested in trading breakouts and still do not have your own trading system, this e-book may help you to build one.

Forex trading bears intrinsic risks of loss. You must understand that Forex trading, while potentially profitable, can make you lose your money. Never trade with the money that you cannot afford to lose! Trading with leverage can wipe your account even faster.

CFDs are leveraged products and as such loses may be more than the initial invested capital. Trading in CFDs carry a high level of risk thus may not be appropriate for all investors.
