The Technical Analysis of Stocks, Options and Futures
by William F. Eng
Average Customer Rating: (6 customer reviews)
One person's view of how various technical analysis tools can be organized into a mechanical structure that enables a person to trade better no matter what the market condition is. Why should we listen? Because the author is a seasoned professional trader of his time.
Each chapter of the book focuses on one technical indicator or technical discipline. Many examples are provided to illustrate the concepts and how they are used in interpreting charts and making trade decisions. The rules explained in the book are pretty explicit so they are easy to understand. One of the most important feature of the book is not inside the chapters though, which are the 2 big tables printed inside the front cover and the back cover. They are the ground rules and the core framework Eng is trying to convey to the readers.

How Technical Analysis Works (New York Institute of Finance)
by Bruce M. Kamich
Average Customer Rating: (8 customer reviews)
Unlike most introductory books, it neither over simplifies, nor does it make it seem as if you need a PhD to learn how to use technical analysis. The book explains how and why technical patterns and indicators work in an entertaining way. On top of that, the examples of patterns in the book are not "text book". You actually get to see what these things might look like in the real world instead of the perfect picture you see in most books.
This is an excellent book for beginners and intermediate traders. It explains TA in a deep but simple way. The real value of this book (for me) is that it explains what is happening, who is buying and who is selling during chart patterns. It also explains how to trade each pattern.
Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior
by A.J. Frost, Robert R. Jr. Prechter, Charles J. Collins
Average Customer Rating: (29 customer reviews)
Obviouosly people either love this book (and this concept) or they hate it.
The book follows the basics of identifying waves and cycles with some historical and matehmatical background information. This is where Pretcher ties the material in with nature. He believes that waves move in a natural way, which can be described by the Fibonacci sequence and Fibonacci ratios. He advocates using Fibonnaci ratios to forecast the distance (e.g. percent change) and timing of stock price movements.
Prechter's Elliott Wave International has a web site at The site provides additional information which may make a stronger case for the validity and importance of this information.

High Probability trading
by Marcel Link
Average Customer Rating: (66 customer reviews)
A common denominator among most new traders is that, within six months of launching their new pursuit, they are out of money and out of trading. High-Probability Trading softens the impact of this "trader's tuition," detailing a comprehensive program for weathering those perilous first months and becoming a profitable trader.
While successful trading requires tremendous skill and knowledge, it begins and ends with mindset. What do exceptional traders think when they purchase a quality stock and the price immediately plummets? How do they keep one bad trade from destroying their confidence--and bankroll? What do they know that the rest of us don't?
