Summary

Not knowing statistics can lead to a loss of money, time, and accurate information.
 
What am I looking at? What do these numbers mean? Why? These are frequent thoughts of those who don’t know much about statistics.
 
“I’m not a number’s person” is not a good excuse to avoid learning the basics of this essential skill. Are you a person who earns money? Do you shop at the supermarket? Do you vote? Do you read the news? I’m sure you do.
 
Learn to make decisions like world leaders do.
 
Do you like to make uninformed, often poor decisions? Are you okay with being manipulated by skewed charts and diagrams? How about being lied to about the effectiveness of a product? I’m sure you don’t.
 
Statistics can help you make exponentially better calls on what to buy, who to listen to, and what to believe.
 
This book offers a detailed, illustrated breakdown of the fundamentals of statistics. Develop and use formal logical thinking abilities to understand the message behind numbers and charts in science, politics, and economy.
 
Sharpen your critical and analytic thinking skills.
 
Know what to look for when analyzing data. Information gets skewed – often unintentionally – because of the mainstream ways of doing statistics that didn’t catch up to big data. Stop staying in the dark. This book shines the light on the most common statistical methods - and their most frequent misuse. This step-by-step guide not only helps you detect what goes wrong in statistics but also educates you on how to utilize invaluable information statistics gets right to your benefit.
 
Avoid making decisions on misleading information.
 
- How to Use Descriptive and Inferential Statistics to Understand the World.
 
- Be Wary of Misleading Charts.
 
- Make Better Decisions Using Probability.
 
- Understand P-Values in Research.
 
- Understand Potential Bias in Studies.
 
Albert Rutherford is the internationally bestselling author of several books on systems thinking, game theory, and mathematical thinking. Jae H. Kim is a freelance writer in econometrics, statistics, and data analysis. Since obtaining his PhD in econometrics in 1997, he has been a professor in major Australian universities until 2022.

Learn basic statistics and spend your money wisely.
 
Statistics, as a learning tool, can be used or misused. Some will actively lie and mislead with statistics. More often, however, well-meaning people – even professionals - unintentionally report incorrect statistical conclusions. Knowing what errors and mistakes to look for will help you to be in a better position to evaluate the information you have been given.

    Part 1: Fast Trading with the Heikin Ashi chart
     
    Scalping is the fastest way to make money in the stock market. There are no other methods that can increase the capital of a trader more effectively. To explain how this is so, the Germany based Heikin Ashi Trader tells all in this e-book, the first of a four-part series on scalping.
     
    His method is very easy to understand and can be applied immediately because it is universal and works in all markets. To scalp, the Heikin Ashi Trader uses heikin ashi charts, which are a type of ancient Japanese chart that vividly depict the course of stock market prices. Heikin Ashi charts have the ability to visualize trends more clearly than the usual candlestick charts. In addition, they also show consolidation and reversal patterns earlier than any other chart representation.
     
    This highly effective scalping strategy can be applied in very short time frame, as in the 1-minute chart as well as on higher time frames. You can trade with this universal method in equity indices and in the currency markets, but the most common instruments are futures or forex pairs.

    Part 1: Introduction to Swing Trading
     
    Swing trading is too fast for investors and too slow for day traders. It takes place on a timeframe in which you will find very few professionals traders.
     
    Swing traders usually use 4-hour charts. This period falls exactly between that of the investor and the day trader. As a swing trader, you are prone to sit on the fence, and that's good, because here you are almost alone.
     
    This eBook describes the swing trading method of the HeikinAshi Trader. It is ideal for individual investors who do not want to sit all day in front of the computer screen.

    Two round number strategies
     
    Currency markets are known to be dominated by news. But since news is rare, most currency pairs move sideways 80% of the time. In other words, it is very difficult to trade forex profitably with trend strategies. This series about forex trading therefore deals with strategies designed specifically for sideways markets.
     
    The "round number" in forex is an interesting phenomenon because mostly a lot of orders are waiting here to be executed. Those who study the charts of currency pairs will find that the market often turns at this so-called "round number" and at least temporarily begins to run in the other direction.
     
    In this first short ebook, Heikin Ashi Trader introduces two simple round number forex strategies. They are easy to understand and easy to implement (even with small accounts). These two strategies are excellent for traders who are looking for forex strategies that can be successfully traded with little analysis.
