Technical Analysis from A to Z

Submitted by Book Library on 28 March, 2010 - 22:51

Technical Analysis from A to Z is updated and revised - with over 35 brand new indicators! It is a comprehensive catalog of today's major technical analysis indicators - indispensable for trading in stocks, bonds, futures, and options! 'There is an urgent need for a concise reference on such a vast array of technical tools. Achelis' new edition fulfills that need and should provide an invaluable guide to newcomers and veterans alike' - John J. Murphy President,, Author, "Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets and Inter market Technical Analysis". 'Steve Achelis has done it again. The first edition was a wonderfully comprehensive encyclopedia of market indicators.

The second edition is even better' Martin Pring President, International Institute of Economic Research Author, "Technical Analysis Explained" and "Martin Pring's Introduction to Technical Analysis". 'Often technical analysis, because of its depth and complexity, can seem like magic. Steve Achelis' Technical Analysis from A to Z, 2nd Edition helps the reader transition from the realm of magic to the land of understanding.

This revision of his classic reference on technical techniques and indicators is a must for any technical analysis library' John Bollinger, CFA, MFT Bollinger Capital Management.

Positive Review of Technical Analysis from A to Z

This book was a great reference of the numerous technical indicators in use today. It gives brief examples of how use these various indicators. This book was not meant to give a comprehensive explanation of the "why's" of technical analysis. It already assumes that the reader already has an understanding of technical analysis. Readers who are just starting out in technical analysis should read books like "Technical Analysis Explained" by Martin Pring, or "Technical Analysis of the financial markets" by John Murphy. Both of these are textbook-style so give yourself at least a month to absorb all the material. Overall, Tech from AtoZ is a great reference tool.

Negative Review of Book

Although Technical Analysis from A to Z is complete in its listing and description of MANY market indicators, it has only done what anyone can do, regardless of their technical expertise. What it does NOT do is explain how to use technical indicators in conjuction with each other to reach real decision-making success. Frankly, I have yet to find a book that does this. I think the writers are really missing the boat, or they just don't have the Know-how to pull this valuable feat off.
