Introduction to Trading with Candlesticks

Seminar Fee: $35*/ *Early bird price valid 18 February 2019 (U.P. $40)


Candlestick charts are recorded as the oldest type of charts used for price prediction. They date back to the 1700’s, when they were used for predicting rice prices. This method of technical analysis developed by the Japanese to analyze the price of rice contracts is called candlestick charting.

Japanese Candlestick Charting is one of the most popular trading tools, it is great for traders who want an extra edge in trading, simply because candlestick charting represents the study of pure price action. It takes into account the price range, the relative positions of its open, high, low, and close (OHLC) prices.

Over the last few decades, traders have begun to use candlestick charts far more frequently than any other technical analysis tool. Candlestick charts have a simple, easy-to-analyze appearance and provide more detailed information about the market that makes them easy to read and interpret.

Learning Objectives

Beginner traders often take excessive, expensive and unnecessary risks hoping to have higher returns, simply because they enter the market without the necessary knowledge and trading edge.

This workshop offers an overview on both the driving forces (supply and demand) of the market as well as the effects of market psychology. Understanding market psychology allows traders to have a better idea of the human emotions involved in making buying and selling decisions. This helps traders to trade in the market effectively.

Target Audience

Beginner traders and investors. Novices without any trading experience and knowledge of technical analysis. Anyone interested in markets, trading and investing are also welcome to register for the workshop.

*Participants who have completed this workshop, they will be entitled to enjoy the special discounted rate of S$288 (usual rate is S$328) to attend the intermediate course on “Candlestick and Technical Analysis Charting Techniques” which will be conducted by the same trainer, Mr Clement Wong.
