You are in luck, I happened to of come across a book they call the bible amongst traders. The author of the book is a guy called Steve Nison.
He is accredited with bringing Japanese candlesticks to the west. He was the first western person to truly study Japanese Candlestick Techniques and bring these simple trading techniques to the west.
I used to struggle when trading Forex, I used a lot of indicators that did not seem to work for me. Then I came across his book and he explained things in a simple way. I totally got it and with practise I was able to read the market and see what was going on.
Once you understand Japanese Candlestick patterns you will be able to read the market clearly, Now if you combine the candlesticks with a western strategy like Fibonacci Levels, Stochastics or trendlines. Now you are cooking on gas!
The name of his book is “Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques”
Once I read this book and got it, It transformed my trading. You only need to learn and perfect one or two of the patterns he describes to make money in Forex.
