I've always been a fan of Steve Nison. Unfortunately it's not cheap but definitely worth the bucks. The information is detailed and clear. Recommended if you have the bucks to spend, but there are other ways to get the products for free. The Reignited DVD's are great. The candle scanning software is another story.
You have to hook up with Ninja Trader to use it and if you need help from the Nison group you must use email only. There is not a lot of help and in my opinion, it takes much longer than other service to get up an running. There are phone numbers on the website but if you are looking for personal help, forget it. I have not had this problem with other services.
I'm really disappointed in their lack of desire to help out after they have your money. The audio quality on Steve Nison's "Profiting with Japanese Candlestick Charts" four DVD set is miserable to the point it is nearly impossible to figure out what he is saying. The video isn't much better!
The company is not interested in resolving this and simply states they have re-recorded it because the audio was bad. They refuse to replace the defective merchandise with something better.
I have studied his candlestick signal materials since he is THE guru that brought it to the western world. But I only needed to buy half the program because much of it is a repeat of stuff I knew and even his staff was honest enough to recommend AGAINST paying all that money for content already presented in Profiting in Forex. His newest materials and candle signal tweaks are exactly what I needed!
Instead of using a knife, I know work with a scalpel and am more precise. In October he is presenting a Forex seminar and I do not doubt he will have some excellent, relevant and more advanced material on Forex so look for a new DVD series around Winter or early Nison does not teach systems!!! Even I threw away all my old candlestick materials and I stopped bleeding money! I have bought 4 of his workshops from his website. NOTE - It is very difficult to find that product on his website for some reason!
Plus, he also takes the time to answer emails from you. Profiting In Forex taught me proper use of candlesticks with Forex. So many other candlestick products out there focus solely on stocks, futures, equities, etc.
He also teaches you how NOT to use candles, when not to take trades He does not teach a 'system'. He teaches candlestick techniques. Now my account is flush with cash from 1k up to over 10k in 4 months and I have only been trading in Forex for less than a year. Steve makes a wild boast that other candle gurus get candles and the trading techniques wrong. I have checked out material by Bigalow and others. They really do get it wrong! Of course, I can only speak from the perspective of a Forex trader.
Spend your money on Mr. His books are nice but they do not cover Forex Also, the DVD workshop includes materials not found in any of his books. I have read his books! I watched all 4 of them over 6 hours of material at least 5 or 6 times, took notes, used a DEMO account and did not trade real money until I had his teachings and disciplines down solid.
I highly recommend you do the same too! I have been a Nison Devotee for quite some time and have purchased a number of his courses. If you can get past the fact that he looks like an 80's porno star his DVD workshops are fantastic. I have recently purchased a copy of his latest DVD set Candlestick re-ignited, which is basically an encyclopedia of candlesticks. If you are thinking your are using candlesticks correctly and haven't seen any of Steve Nison's material chances are you aren't using them correctly.
His material can be applied to any market and any timeframe, a key test to make sure any material is valid so if you are thinking about it, do it you won't be dissappointed with Steve Nison's material. Steve Nison's material is excellent, I have personally read his Candlestick course book, and purchased 3 of his dvd workshops. One of the best trading educational investments that I've made. You won't be disappointed. Nison, the very first to reveal the startling power of candlestick charts to the Western Hemisphere, is acknowledged as the leading authority on the subject.
Now almost every electronic charting package has them. He is the author of the "bible" of candle charting analysis, Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques.
