PEARSON

“This book is an excellent primer. As a proponent of the art-versus-science school of technical analysis, his primary focus is on the practical aspects of chart reading and how to translate the intelligence derived from charts into investment decisions. If you have ever wondered what technical analysis is, or how you could get started doing it, this is a good place to start.”

J ohn B ollinger, CFA, CMT, President, Bollinger Capital Management

 

“Here is the place to discover why the RSI goes up while the price is going down, how to measure potential moves from a breakout, how not to look at a chart with preconceived notions of what the market will do--‘Let the market talk....’ The advice is above all practical. [This is] a book to own, particularly in the earlier stages of your investment career.”

M ichael S myrk, STA Journal

 

“Finally, an easy-to-understand explanation of how technical analysis works! This primer shows investors how to spot trends and patterns in the markets that can help them choose winning stocks. Full of practical advice, this is a must have for both individual and professional investors.”

  • Fully updated with new coverage of bubbles, sector rotation, and rare “black swan” market events

Technical analysis offers powerful, objective tools for picking stocks and making money--and in today’s market environment, that makes it more indispensable than ever. Unfortunately, most technical analysis books confuse investors instead of enlightening them. In this clear, practical, fully updated book, Barron’s Online technical analysis columnist Michael N. Kahn introduces proven technical analysis techniques in simple language that any investor can understand and use.

 

Kahn explains how technical analysis works and then teaches you how to read charts and translate them into investment decisions. You’ll learn how to use technical analysis to complement your current approach to stock selection, discover what makes a stock look promising, and objectively assess both risk and reward.

 

This completely revised third edition contains many new examples reflecting today’s transformed market environment. You’ll find detailed new coverage of recognizing bubbles, including real estate (2006), oil (2008), and bonds (2009). Kahn presents powerful new insights into the relationship between technical analysis and market psychology and crucial, up-to-date guidance on sector rotation in rapidly changing markets. He also presents a full chapter on navigating through chaotic, once-in-a-millennium, “black-swan” market events.

 

  • Why technical analysis works
    Bringing real objectivity to investment decision-making
  • Chart patterns: See the forest and the trees
    Recognizing markets that are changing, need a rest, or are about to take off
  • Understand the central importance of price...
    And what you must know about volume, time, and investor sentiment
  • Down the road: a taste of advanced technical analysis
    Candlesticks, cycles, Elliott waves, and how to debunk those guys on TV

Great book for beginners trying to profit from stocks or commodities by using charts and patterns. In the book Khan explains the patterns and movements in the market that can result in profitable outcomes if followed correctly. His ability to simplify a complicated subject so that anyone can become a money making machine. Khan discusses with heavy significance on emotion and factors affecting successful stock operators, he mentions risk management and indicators made to smooth out the market. This book gets 4/5 from me since it is a treasure trove of information but at the same time you have to filter out what is useful to you and what is insignificant, there are no mention of any time tested strategy only the knowledge of what may drive prices in the stock market, the rest is up for you to decide on what works and what doesn’t. This book is recommended for those who want to learn about the charts of the market and why they move like they do so the reader may profit from this. @selfhelpguru of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
