Finance Faculty Member Publishes Book on Technical Analysis
July 9, 2012
Julie Dahlquist, senior lecturer in finance, has published her third book on technical analysis, Technical Analysis of Gaps. The book is co-authored with her husband Richard Bauer, a faculty member at St. Mary’s University.
Gaps represent price jumps that could signal profitable technical trading opportunities.
Using 17 years of comprehensive data, the book shows how to identify strategic gaps with high-profit potential in order to trade more successfully.
The book addresses such issues as gap size, volume, and previous price movement; and integrates their insights into practical, actionable gap-related trading strategies for stocks, futures and options.
Technical analysis is a method used to make investment decisions based on the study of past market data, primarily price and volume data. Rooted in economic theory, technical analysts study the actions of the market in order to forecast the direction that the market will continue.
Dahlquist, a renowned technical analyst researcher, is a certified Chartered Market Technician. A frequent presenter at national and international conferences, Dahlquist and Bauer were honored last year by the Market Technicians Association for their paper on this issue.
