John R. Hill – Scientific Interpretation of Bar Charts


Learning the science of commodity trading is a constant search for knowledge. Never a day passes in which some new market principle is gleaned from the mass activity in the futures market. It has been my practice to examine each trade in detail after it has been completed to evaluate the “why” of technical market action.

These notes have been assembled in this latest work. Some of these ideas are repetitious and, at points, I’m sure the market student will consider it a bit disorganized and simply too many facets to consider in arriving at a market decision. However, rather than delete, most of these notes have been included.

We are attempting to impart ideas to the market student. As someone has said, “One good idea is worth millions”. It is assumed that one has familiarity with commodity markets and has read our previous book Stock & Commodity Market Trend Trading by Advanced Technical Analysis.

It is our sincere hope that each of you reading Scientific Interpretation of Bar Charts will glean at least one good idea that will enhance your trading ability and profits.
