Now that high-speed traders dominate the market, yesterday’s slower-paced analysis strategies are virtually worthless. To outperform, individual traders must discover fleeting market trends and inefficiencies and act on them before they disappear.

Five years ago, this required multimillion-dollar data mining and analytical infrastructures. Today, you can do it with Microsoft Excel, a powerful PC, and this book.

Step by step, world-class trader Jeff Augen shows how to use Excel 2007 or 2010 to uncover hidden correlations and reliable trade triggers based on subtle anomalies and price distortions…create and test new hypotheses others haven’t considered…visualize data to reveal insights others can’t see!
