Praise for KASE ON TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
"Cynthia Kase is ′the real deal.′ Her quantitative engineering skills and her many years of hands–on trading in the energy markets and derivatives clearly shine through. Cynthia′s video lectures are well designed. She speaks with clarity, conviction, and motivation; the listener is treated to concrete cases, careful explanations, and opportunities to apply the Kase principles. Traders, analysts, and forecasters will be well rewarded from a study of Kase on Technical Analysis. They will learn the essence of Kase on True Range construction, Kase on Candlesticks, Kase on Swing Trades, Kase on Moving Average Systems, Kase on Risk Management, and Kase on many other concepts, indicators, and prudent applications. The workbook wraps up the Kase."
Prof. Henry Pruden, PHD, Golden Gate University
"Cynthia′s work is widely respected among market professionals who rely on her accurate forecasting techniques. Now she explains the thinking behind her powerful technical indicators and shows how to apply them in real life situations to make money. This is a guide on how pros can improve their trading, and how those not working at hedge funds can compete with them!"
Michael Carr, CMT, Editor, Technically Speaking (Market Technicians Association newsletter)
"Since the early 1990S Cynthia Kase has been a widely–accepted and praised speaker at many national and international Dow Jones and Company (TAG) Technical Analysis Seminars. Her video and workbook cover the most important technical analysis studies, all with keen insights into their relevance and use. Most importantly, each section of her presentation is further enhanced by a select group of provided questions and answers that enlighten and help reinforce those key elements that are the core of proper analysis and success in trading."
Timothy C. Slater, Managing Director, TAG "Technical Analysis Group," Dow Jones and Company Inc./Telerate
"I have had the pleasure of working with Cynthia to implement her indicators on multiple platforms since the early 1990S. The Kase indicators reflect Cynthia′s analytical background and thorough understanding of the application of technical analysis in financial markets. In this video series with accompanying workbook, Cynthia provides solid mathematical reasoning for market behavior analysis enhanced with advanced tips and techniques to increase the probability of trading success."
Ernie Popke, Business Manager, Bloomberg LP
"Kase on Technical Analysis is a superb resource for anyone serious about improving their ability to forecast markets and manage risk. Kase′s work brings an uncommon depth of understanding about what actually works in the markets. This instructional material will help analysts improve their value in the marketplace and open their eyes to a modern application of technical analysis for recognizing opportunities and managing risk."
