Capturing Profit with Technical Analysis

Are you looking for a better, more consistent trading system to boost profits? How about a new indicator to bolster your current technical trading? Are you in need of a no-nonsense, practical, and profitable technical trading guide? Let me hand you the breakthrough methods in this new book designed especially for active traders.

My trading book is a complete reference on how to apply technical analysis for profits. It explains my own trading style in the language of active traders: You will actually find specific answers to the all-important “where to open” and “when to close” questions. And, to help you start profiting immediately, text is limited to what you really need to know and all techniques are illustrated with an application example. Read the introduction here.


Book capturing Profit with technical Analysis

Capturing Profit with Technical Analysis pulls an unprecedented approach into a ready-to-use plan that tells you where to begin, gives clear rules to trade, and how to pull your fortune out of the markets. Hard to believe? Absolutely. To make sure that this guide does what it has to, it was put to the test before it had a chance of being printed. Real traders, not friendly famous names, were invited to review the raw manuscript to guarantee it was the real deal.

"I have been in the investment business since 1992 and have continually worked to improve my investment performance. I have spent countless hours developing quantitative mechanical investment systems and backtesting them. I have taken nearly every formula Sylvain includes in this book and rewrote it to test with my system. I couldn't be more pleased with the results."


Did John say this was the Holy Grail? If he did you wouldnt be reading any further. Since he is a real trader he knows that traders want real world trading solutions that work. One such trading solution includes getting some practice before jumping into a market blindly.


This new handbook, Capturing Profit with Technical Analysis, gives you a complete approach that meets the demands of traders who want to make money:


  • Crystal clear rules for every step making it easy and realistic to follow,
  • LOCKIT--an easy way to remember the most important rules that produce winning trades,
  • All of the Metastock code for every indicator pre-programmed in a disc in the back of the book,


  • A practical Elliott Wave count assisting indicator to confirm the direction of price and to create price targets,
  • The Heikin-ashi Bollinger Bands %b indicator to show divergences in price for actionable signals to generate profit,
  • My proprietary indicator SVAPO ("Short term Volume and Price Oscillator") designed to amplify the wins from this approach,


  • Optimized ATR trailing stop methods to "LOCK" and protect gains,
  • Specific money and risk management rules to keep you in the market and achieving your goals,
  • Access to updated information from my blog that ensures you dont miss new applications for this system,

Not enough?

Two of the greatest analysts are believers. Dick Arms, known for the ARMS Index and Charlie Kirkpatrick, the analysts professor, have put this book on their shelf.

Arms"In this well researched and documented book Sylvain Vervoort presents a concise, but highly readable, methodology. His strength is his ability to examine a large number of technical analysis tools, explain them understandably but briefly, and then select from them the strongest features of each. These he then combines and relates to one another, using his own proprietary calculations, emerging with a complete and concise trading method. Marrying this to strong computer tools, he gives us a comprehensive way of buying and selling, and also managing our money. This is a worthwhile addition to the realm of Technical Analysis."

Richard W. Arms, Jr.
Publisher of Arms Advisory;
Inventor of the Arms Index and Equivolume Charting

Kirkpatrick"Sylvain Vervoort's new book describes a technical trading method he calls "LOCKIT," which is an acronym for the principle components of any good investment or trading system: selection, timing, capital risk control, and money management. The great value I found in the book is the extraordinarily clear descriptions of the technical indicators, charts, and oscillators he uses, both traditional and esoteric. For this reason alone, his book is a valuable technical-analysis guide and reference."

Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical Performance Disclosure: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
