Brown knows exactly what a professional trying to come up to speed on a new trading tool needs and she provides it, covering what Fibonacci analysis is, how it works, where it comes from, pitfalls and dangers, and, of course, how to use it. Basic trading strategies are touched upon in virtually every chapter.
Fibonacci analysis is one of the most popular technical analysis tools, yet it is often used incorrectly. Brown quickly clears up common misconceptions and moves on to show, step by step, the correct way to apply the technique in any market.
Those with Fibonacci analysis software will learn how to use it with maximum effectiveness; those without will chart the market the old-fashioned way. All will find answers to the trader's most important questions: Where is the market going? At what level should my stop be entered? Based on the size of my trading account, how much should I leverage into a trading position? Can I tell if I am in trouble before my stop is hit? How much should I buy or sell if given a second or third opportunity?
Occasional references to other tools--including Elliott Wave, W.D. Gann, and candlestick charts--and an extensive bibliography make this book richer for accomplished technical analysts without confounding the less experienced. Plentiful real-life examples and dozens of carefully annotated charts insure every reader will get maximum value from every minute spent with this book.

This isn't te easiest book to work through but it's worth it if you do.
Constance Brown obviously is very familiar with Fibonacci analysis, but I didn't relate very easily to her way of explaining the topics and found myself having to refer back to a lot of stuff as I was working through it. It also doesn't help that half of the charts are printed in landscape orientation and I was constantly rotating the book back and forth between sentences.
Excellent. Very surprising that we share a lot of the same views. Of course there are a couple chapters I disagree with. Worth reading to learn the sole fact that the average distance between the first 5 planets in our solar system is Phi.
