excellent & original contribution to trading literature... assuredly not for beginner, October 1, 2005 ByRobert Angerer (Houston) - See all my reviews This review is from: Trading With The Odds: Using the Power of Probability to Profit in the Futures Market (Hardcover) Summary -- Cynthia Kase's "Trading With The Odds" is an excellent and original contribution to the trading literature, and merits at least 4.5 stars... but this book is assuredly not for the beginning or superficial technician. I've read enough book reviews on Amazon now to be able to somewhat ferret out the useful bits from the whining and complaining. I don't write reviews often, but feel compelled to in this case (no pun intended), given the lopsided ratio of whining-to-substantive reviews here resulting in a mean (pun intended) 3 star rating. Out of 320-someodd trading books on my shelves, this one is a standout. It is one of the 10% in my possession that I have repeatedly referred to, and actually utilized, over the years. I first eagerly read Kase's book upon its release in 1996 (I first heard Kase speak on tape from an early 1990's Computrac TAG Conference). This material stands the test of time in 2005... why? Because Cynthia offers original...

TIME TRAVEL FOR TECHNICAL ANALYSTS, January 5, 2000 ByJohn B Piper Jr (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Trading With The Odds: Using the Power of Probability to Profit in the Futures Market (Hardcover) Trading With the Odds exemplifies one of Larry Williams' observations about text books on technical analysis and trading in general: thinner is better. Cynthia Kase delivers a spare 150 pages crammed full of fresh ideas about technical analysis and profitable trading, written in the rigorous voice of a professional engineer and corporate trader. The narrative style compares to other technical books the way espresso compares to coffee: highly concentrated and correspondingly brief, but rich in explanatory sidebars, chart illustrations and appended tutorials.Definitely not a quick read or a quick solution, and certainly not a How To book in the sense of giving you TradeStation or UltiManager printouts to try to replicate at home. Instead, Trading With the Odds is an idea book, almost terse in its highly focused thesis. It is a make-you-think book, not for whiners or week-end warriors but for serious players who will do any amount of work to develop an edge in...

I was deceived. It's just an advertising folder., May 1, 2002 ByM. Mendonca "Manelăo" (Niterói, RJ, Brazil) - See all my reviews This review is from: Trading With The Odds: Using the Power of Probability to Profit in the Futures Market (Hardcover) This book by Cynthia Kase is intended to provide you with "the power of statistics to profit in the futures market". To acomplish this, she proposes the "kase permission stochastic" in chapter 4, the "kase peakoscillator", "peakout line" and "kaseCD" in chapter 5, and the "dev-stops" in chapter 6. But the unbelievable is that she hides all the mathematics required to calculate those indicators. Very disappointing. I was deceived.
