Very professional author delivering great value for the price. Very well written and comprehensive. There was plenty to learn in this book and overall it offers much reasonable advice.
However, it also packs a large portion of bizarre and obviously silly content, such as the phase-of-the-moon and the "Jupiter-Saturn cycle" trading systems mentioned in other reviews.
Still, I find even this bit useful as a reminder of the danger of being lured in by a trading system based on numerology instead of relevant data. It's nice to remember that the reason analysts compute the day and day moving averages are because these are half and a full moon's cycle, respectively. Of course, these became popular even though they refer to trading days instead of Earth days what?
My other complaint is the use of proprietary "Easy Language" code samples; this would be fine if it included an appendix on Easy Language syntax, but this is conspicuously missing Suprisingly, I did find the discussion of solar eclipses informative from an astronomy viewpoint. Overall, even with the negatives, I enjoyed the other reference material Was this review helpful to you?
This book is a complete and comprehensive guide to methods of technical analysis. These methods are covered in a concise and sinthetic way perhaps very sinthetic , so you can't loose any word in the method of your interest. But I love this way. This contrasts with Kaufman's "Smarter Trading", a very wordy book that dissapoints me. This is the other side of the coin. Besides this, is the most comprehensive book you can find; if you are looking for a particular method possibly you will found in this book many sound variants of the original you've looking for.
The best technical reference I've found, but don't spect too much than a reference.More...
