Over the course of his career, author Al Brooks, a technical analysis contributor to Futures magazine and an independent trader for more than twenty years, has found a way to capture consistent profits regardless of market direction or economic climate. And now, with his new three-book series - which focuses on how to use price action to trade the markets - Brooks takes you step by step through the entire process. In order to put his methodology in perspective, Brooks examines an essential array of price action basics and trends in this initial book. Page by page, he skillfully addresses how understanding price action and effectively reading price charts, bar by bar, can help you follow unfolding trends usually initiated by institutions and allow you to profitably piggyback onto their trades by setting up early entries with tight stops. Throughout the book, Brooks focuses primarily on 5 minute candle charts - all of which are created with TradeStation - to illustrate basic principles, but also discusses daily and weekly charts. And since he trades more than just E-mini S&P 500 futures, Brooks also details how price action can be used as the basis for trading stocks, forex, Treasury Note futures, and options.5899 Руб.
The MCAT is undergoing major changes in early 2015. All sections of the test will be getting longer, and the Verbal Reasoning section on the old MCAT is being replaced by Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills (CARS), a new section which reflects the fact that medical schools want well-rounded applicants from a variety of backgrounds. MCAT Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills Review will help students with key CARS topics like structure and pacing, content, ranking passages, annotating and mapping, active reading, and more.1295.1 Руб.

Written by pioneers in the field, Highlights in Helioclimatology examines the scientific evidence related to the influence of solar activity on climate and the resulting atmospheric process that creates hurricanes. In addition to providing the science behind the phenomenon, this book also provides tools for aiding in hurricane prediction, specifically spectral analysis and signal theory. In addition to aiding readers in understanding tropical storm and hurricane genesis, intensification, and prediction, Highlights in Helioclimatology also provides an excellent introduction to spectral analysis - an essential tool for anyone who is actively performing research in hurricanes and climatology. Tools that aid in hurricane prediction, specifically spectra analysis and signal theory; Various perspectives in hurricane research including matricial theory and principal component analysis; Application of cross-wavelet analysis to terrestrial and cosmophysical phenomena to determine their main common resonant frequencies from ultra-short to long-term periodicities.6327.9 Руб.
This is a new kind of textbook in microeconomic theory. In place of the usual concentration on partial equilibrium analysis and discussion of a standard series of topics, the authors seek to introduce the student from the start to the general equilibrium approach to microeconomics, in the form of the two-sector model. This model is then applied to a variety of subjects in different special fields of economic analysis: welfare economics, international trade, public finance and income distribution. This book represents a very different approach to the teaching of micro-economic theory than normally followed, and one that will be of greater long-run value to the serious student of economics. In place of the usual textbook development of the subject as traditionally conceived through topics of increasing complexity and analytical difficulty, using partial equilibrium techniques of analysis, the book concentrates on the exposition and application of a more logically integrated set of tools that have been found of greater use in the analysis of problems arising not only in traditional micro-economics but also in a number of fields of economics that have customarily been hived off into separate specialized advanced courses. General Equilibrium Analysis starts with the description of the two-sector model and how these two sectors are built based on the individual micro-units in which they made up of and how they fit into the concept of the circular flow of income. Subsequent chapters deal with the evaluation of changes in factor endowment, demand preferences and technical progress by means of the model; and the theory of government, which includes both the theory of government expenditure, or public goods, and the theory of government tax and/or subsidy programmes-changes in budgetary scale, tax substitution and expenditure substitution. The model is then extended to an open economy-the so-called "two by two by two"-to consider both the normative effect of international trade and the possible determinants of international trade, with special attention being given to the relationship between commodity trade and factor mobility. Lastly this model is opened into a dynamic model of growth with its emphasis on requirements for the economy to maximize consumption per head on its long-run equilibrium growth path, and the effect of international trade on the growth path itself. Harry G.Johnson was Professor of Economics at both the London School of Economics and the University of Chicago. He has been editor of The Manchester School and the Journal of Political Economy and has served on the research staff of the Royal Commission on Banking and Finance, as a Consultant to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and as a Member of the Review Committee on Balance of Payments Statistics. Melvyn B. Krauss is William L. Clayton Senior Fellow, at the Hoover Institution. His current research focuses on the topics of foreign trade policy, regional economics and the relationship between free trade and the welfare state Both have published numerous journal articles applying general equilibrium analysis of the type deployed here to international trade, public finance and related fields.3144.6 Руб.
Greatly admired by the world community of policymakers and scholars of international trade, Arthur Dunkel is credited with having saved the Uruguay Round from failure. This volume - whose authors include the most distinguished trade policymakers and eminent academics from international economics and law - is a testimony to Dunkel's enormous standing in the trade community. The volume contains many accounts, by prominent players in the Uruguay Round negotiation, of what happened behind the scenes. These include Rubens Ricupero, now head of UNCTAD, on the developing countries' evolving positions; Indian Ambassador Zutshi on how the agreement on intellectual property protection was reached; and Secretary Clayton Yeutter on the negotiations in agriculture. Also of great interest are the authoritative analyses by major figures of new issues beyond the Uruguay Round. Sir Leon Brittan offers an analysis of the need to include competition policy in the WTO; Paul Volcker writes on the need to strengthen multilateralism in the rush to regionalism; Helmut Mauscher, chairman of the International Chamber of Commerce, on international business issues posed by accelerating globalization. The academic contributors bring scholarly viewpoints to bear on these new issues. Among them are Hon Jackson's analysis of sovereignty questions; Robert Hudec's of the evolution of the dispute settlement system under the GATT and current problems facing the WTO; Jagdish Bhagwati's of the issues raised by the interface between human rights and trade; and the trenchant critique of regionalism by Arvind Panagariya and T. N. Srinivasan. Jagdish Bhagwati is Arthur Lehman Professor of Economics and Professor of Political Science, Columbia University. Mathias Hirsch is Arthur Dunkel's personal assistant.9373.5 Руб.
