Have you ever wondered to what extent investor confidence and expectations impact stock market prices? In Behavioral Trading, stock market contrarian, Woody Dorsey, gives readers for the first time insight into his highly profitable proprietary market diagnosis techniques. These are often described as market expectations theory, behavioral finance and most commonly contrary opinion analysis. Dorsey's work is followed by major investors and the financial media seeks his macroeconomic perspective that is more than six months ahead of the crowd. For the first time, Woody Dorsey shows how his technique makes behavioral economics practical, accessible and understandable. He has developed his unique insights from his research of financial market probabilities during the past twenty years. Market Semiotics, both the name of Dorsey's company and his technique, is a research philosophy based on the logic of behavioral finance. In an illuminating and amusing fashion, this book offers an original and disciplined perspective that delivers precise forecasts of the market.

Review quote

"There aren't many analysts in the world worth following. Woody Dorsey is an exception. His way of analyzing markets kept you on the right side of the markets at major and at intermediate turning points over the years. I would not like to be on the other side of a trade with Woody Dorsey."
