The Wyckoff Method is a technical analysis approach to navigating the financial markets based on the study of the relationship between demand and supply forces.
Wyckoff based the approach on his observations of the market activities of a group of better informed, more highly experienced traders/investors.
These were the “super” traders who analyzed the market, knew why and how it moved, and made profits from it. They had the capacity to influence prices trends and directions.
Today, they are embodied by the largest hedge funds, pension plans, investment banks, among others.
Wyckoff integrated their best practices with his original ideas and articulated a chart-based method based on several principles, techniques, and laws to track and trade in harmony with them.
Richard Wyckoff established key principles on tops, bottoms, trends, and tape reading in the early decades of the 20th century.
These timeless concepts continue to educate traders and investors, nearly 90 years later.
