Praise for Trend Qualification & Trading

Little."—Alan Farley, author, The Master Swing Trader and editor/publisher, Hard Right Edge

Little explains how you can do so in his engaging style."—William Hennelly, Managing Editor, TheStreet

Little captures the true essence of trading a trend, identifying when it is occurring and establishing the safest and most profitable ways to exploit the trend.

With the vast number of tools available to the technician, defining the trend and riding it out is one that is critical for trading success. This book is a must-read and should be part of a technician's toolbox."—Bob Lang, President, Aztec Capital, LLC

Little's concepts are a must-read for any serious technician."—Timothy Collins, Management Partner,TangleTrade Management
