Название: Float Analysis: Powerful Technical Indicators Using Price and Volume
Автор: Woods S.
The author claims that he has discovered the missing element that complements price and volume and it is the float (or, the status of it). When the cumulative daily volume in a given time period adds up to the float (the number of publicly available and traded shares), you get a Float Turnover; good or bad things may happen at this point. Three cumulative technical markers are introduced here: Volume-Float Indicator, Volume Percentage Indicator and Volume Channel Indicator (this last looks like Bollinger Bands). These concepts and markers are all well explaned and demonstrated. The book has plenty of figures, even "A Compendium of Float Analysis Formations".
The book is clearly written, enthusiastic, even modest considering the confidence the author has in his findings. He wastes no time detailing the core discovery and the ten "sub-discoveries" that stem from it. He does not state that the method is fool-proof, but emphasizes its place in technical analysis. Fair enough. One may argue that the backward calculation that marks a period of Float Turnover is, well, backward. That is, how do you know where to start adding together the daily volume - backward? It is also hard to see the success of the method in today's quite volatile market environment. May work well for nice, smooth, trending periods, but boy, haven't you "gapped down" lately? I disagree with the criticism below that the introduction of Multiple Float Turnovers would be an oxymoron. These formations are emphasized only in the context of base building, nothing is wrong with that.
My only problem is that the book seems too pricey, considering that it is an expansion of a published article. I respect the author that he avoided unnecessary repetitions to bloat the number of pages, but one star is still down for the price, sorry...
