As today’s market environment continues to change dramatically, more and more traders are discovering that traditional forecasting methods-pure technical analysis and fundamental analysis-just do not work. Sending out contradictory messages, these opposing schools of thought leave investors baffled about the future direction of the market, and consequently, at a loss as to how to tailor their trading systems. As a result, many practitioners have now turned to a new forecasting “cocktail” that combines traditional charting methodologies with chaos theory and human psychology. In this groundbreaking book, Bill Williams, a seasoned trader at the forefront of this dynamic new approach, explains exactly what it is, how it works in current stock and commodity markets, and how to use it to your advantage.
Based on human nature rather than the vagaries of the market, the new trading dimension works on the premise that we trade not the market, but our own belief system. By assessing what your personal biases are, you can determine how they influence your ultimate success-or failure-and then adjust your trading strategies accordingly.
Written by an expert in the field who has been featured in Futures, Worth, Success, and other prominent publications, New Trading Dimensions takes the latest in scientific knowledge about human behavior and applies it directly to the fields of stock and commodity investing and trading. With straightforward guidelines, it shows you how to adopt the right attitude toward the behavior of the market and use the right tools (ATTITOOLS) for profitable trading. Packed with practice exercises, specific applications to different types of investments, and a detailed review of important market signals, here’s where you’ll learn how to: * Discover what the market wants and align your own beliefs with the direction of the market * Apply chaos theory to trading and investing * Use Williams’ “Market Alligator” for analyzing and profiting from the markets * Employ a multidimensional trading program that includes such tools and techniques as fractals, oscillators, AC signals, psychological zones, and balance lines * Exit trades in a timely fashion to reap high returns
Drawing on the author’s more than forty years of experience as both a successful trader and seasoned trainer, this invaluable guide offers a breakthrough method that has proven its ability to turn investors into consistent winners.

Traders and sophisticated investors are increasingly finding that traditional market forecasting methods, such as fundamental analysis or technical analysis are not working as effectively in today’s market conditions. Fundamental analysts have research to prove that the market is ready for a downturn, yet technical analysts provide research for the contrary. Which research is correct? As a result of these contradictions, many traders and investors have turned to a new source of approach to the markets which combines scientific theories and investment psychology. The reasoning behind this new market forecast method is that since the markets act differently now, there should be a new way to view them, as well. Bill Williams is one of the trainers who has combined these elements of traditional technical charting methodology with chaos theory and human psychology. In New Trading Dimensions, Williams discusses, in detail, this new methodology.
