Already the field's most comprehensive, reliable, and objective guidebook, Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians, Second Edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the field's latest advances. Selected by the Market Technicians Association as the official companion to its prestigious Chartered Market Technician (CMT) program, this book systematically explains the theory of technical analysis, presenting academic evidence both for and against it. Using hundreds of fully updated illustrations, the authors explain the analysis of both markets and individual issues, and present complete investment systems and portfolio management plans. They present authoritative, up-to-date coverage of tested sentiment, momentum indicators, seasonal affects, flow of funds, testing systems, risk mitigation strategies, and many other topics. This edition thoroughly covers the latest advances in pattern recognition, market analysis, and systems management. The authors introduce new confidence tests; cover increasingly popular methods such as Kagi, Renko, Kase, Ichimoku, Clouds, and DeMark indicators; present innovations in exit stops, portfolio selection, and testing; and discuss the implications of behavioral bias for technical analysis. They also reassess old formulas and methods, such as intermarket relationships, identifying pitfalls that emerged during the recent market decline. For traders, researchers, and serious investors alike, this is the definitive book on technical analysis.

Kirkpatrick: Technical Analysis,
This review is from: Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians (2nd Edition) (Hardcover)The second edition of Charles Kirkpatrick's (2011) Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource For Financial Market Technicians is as good as (or even better) than the Fidelity Technical Analyst stated. I went to another Fidelity training session and this book was presented as the best single technical analysis book currently available. The writing style was clear and was accessible to the "intelligent layman." If you happen to have a long-term background in trading as well as a strong fundamental understanding of statistics (especially regression analysis), you will appreciate the depth of coverage and the references to other sources. This is a fine text for a technical analysis course and is also an excellent source of information about many aspects of technical analysis. The text is 671 pages long. The index is 34 pages long. The reference section is 25 pages long. There is a section on basic statistics in an appendix as well as a glossary of technical terms. On a scale of ten I give... Read more

Important reading even for mid-term and long-term investor,
This review is from: Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians (2nd Edition) (Hardcover)I begin my investment by using the value investing approach. "Securities Analysis" and "The Intelligent Investor" by Benjamin Graham are excellent books on value investing. They taught me how to pick stock based on fundamental analysis and give me great advice on investment - be patient, look for great business with great management, insist on margin of safety, future value is a function of present price, sell to optimists and buy from pessimists. I did make good profits by following Benjamin's advice. However, very often I buy too early when the stock price is falling and I sell too early when the stock price is rising. I can do much better if I had read this book. This book tells me how to measure market strength, why trend analysis is important, when to buy and when to sell by using various indicators, oscillators and patterns, how to confirm signal with volume. Now I can enter and exit a position with more confidence and most importantly, I make more money than before and loss... Read more

KINDLE version is GARBAGE!,
This review is from: Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians (2nd Edition) (Kindle Edition)I bought the e-book version of this text and all of the figures and charts are completely illegible on the Kindle app for the iPad. The importance of understanding the figures presented on this complex topic can not be understated. I was completely frustrated by the low resolution (aka "fuzziness") of the figures. The resolution of most figures is so poor that most of the book's figures are worthless. The text itself is wonderfully written, so I can not begin to express my frustration with the figures and charts. How can they sell this text as an e-book? Its completely unacceptable! Save yourself the frustration and skip the Kindle version of this text.
