For generations, technical market analysts have relied on the Wyckoff method for understanding price/volume interactions–a breakthrough technique created by Richard D. Wyckoff, one of the most influential traders in stock market history. More recently, many technical analysts have also applied the Lowry Analysis, an exceptionally powerful approach to understanding the forces of supply and demand that are the starting point for all macro-analysis.


Now, for the first time, two leaders at Lowry Research discuss how to combine these methods. Drawing on more than 45 years of experience as technical analysts, Richard A. Dickson and Tracy Knudsen introduce a uniquely powerful, objective, and quantifiable approach to applying traditional price/volume analysis. By understanding their techniques, investors can gain insights unavailable through other technical methodologies, and uncover subtle indications of emerging trend shifts before other methods can reveal them.
