Editorial Reviews

Review

“Having observed his market calls real time over the years, I can say that Jason Perl’s application of the DeMark indicators distinguishes his work from industry peers when it comes to market timing. This book demonstrates how traders can benefit from his insight, using the studies to identify the exhaustion of established trends or the onset of new ones. Whether you’re fundamentally or technically inclined, Perl’s DeMark Indicators is an invaluable trading resource.”--Leon G. Cooperman, chairman, Omega Advisors



“Tom DeMark, the man whose work inspired this book, is a unique, interesting, and ofttimes iconoclastic technical analyst. Simply put, he thinks about the markets differently from the way you or I do. So why should you read this book? Because, having read it, you will almost certainly think about the markets and technical analysis differently.”--John Bollinger, CFA, CMT, www.BollingerBands.com



“Jason Perl has taken the playbook from the market’s John Wooden, Tom DeMark, and translated it engagingly in a format that traders of all levels will appreciate. As one who has used these indicators for more than twenty years, I too am appreciative of Jason’s clarity.”--Peter Borish, Chairman and CEO, Computer Trading Corporation

Customer Reviews

What an awful lot of rubbish this book is!
R. Hannay
To be sure, some of the indicators and the corresponding formulas are explained clearly but too often clarity is lost.
Bill
This book is for the technician, because you can easily create a trading strategy using TD Demark Indicators!!

This is a handbook on the DeMark indicators. The book is useful if you subscribe to the indicators on Bloomberg, etc. You won't find these indicators on Esignal, Tradestation or on free websites.

So does this book contain anything useful for the rest of us? Yes, if you want to program the indicators yourself in whatever system you are using. Just don't expect total clarity because the author is not going to give away the straight formulas for proprietary indicators. However, with some creativity and the information in the book, I'm sure they can be reconstructed. Anyway, the book is much clearer than DeMark's own books.

And for the rest of us that are not programmers? No. This book is not for us.

However, I would assume these indicators will be available for all systems in a couple of years. Until the I give the book only two stars.

I have written several short reviews on trading books. The best way is to compare the score on the books I've read. Many reviews on amazon.com are just glorious 5 star reviews. I use all five categories; sorry but everything isn't "great". Books rated 5 are very good. Books rated 4 are good solid books well worth reading. Books rated 3 can be bought by some people who read a lot or have very specific needs. Books rated 1 or 2 I would not recommend buying or reading. Naturally all in my humble opinion.

I've been struggling for weeks now to recreate many of Demark's indicators for the Ninjatrader platform in C# - relying soley on the original explainations in Tom Demark's book. There are a lot of very detailed logic rules for these indicators that , if you blink, you'll miss a step in the procedure. Jason Perl's book is exactly what I have been looking for.
He breaks down each indicator in a top down pseudo code step by step format that makes understanding and code translation a breeze. There are also numerous Q & A's that I found extremely insighful.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I purchased the book based on reviews that indicated it provided a clear description of the formulas used by DeMark in his indicators. This is exactly what I was looking for in order to code my trading software. To be sure, some of the indicators and the corresponding formulas are explained clearly but too often clarity is lost. When this happens it is impossible to code the indicator without going to other resources.

If you want to use the book for programming purposes be prepared to do a great deal of digging in other books and articles in order to extract the formulas for some of the indicators. The bottom line unfortunately is that "DeMark Indicators" is not a one-stop source for DeMark's indicator formulas.

Like old French philosophy that simply made sweeping statements about the world without any proof, the DeMark indicators are based on some mystic numerical system of 9 and 13. Yes, there are also on some seemingly sound supply/demand principles, but these, too, have no proof of efficacy.

Sure, there are testimonies on the web (and by the author) that this stuff works. However, I am from Missouri (metaphorically speaking), and my credulity level is low. So I back-tested the stuff that could be tested: not the 9's and the 13's, which come with so many qualifiers and caveats, that you'd need Deep Blue to test them. Rather, I tested the short term indicators (differentials), the Waldo patterns, and whatever oscillators could be tested on an Excel spreadsheet. (More about these soon).

What can I say? Some worked sometimes, others not at all, some worked on the long side, not on the short, others on the short but not on the long. I tried testing the patterns on several stocks, ETF's, even a few indices. The only thing I can say is, you'd need a book full of exceptions and qualifiers to use these Waldos and Differentials and what not, to know which works when.

Now, If I were mercenary, I'd urge you to use them (like Buffett says about suckers using Modern Portfolio Theory), so I could take your money by using whatever does work for me (i.e.: fundamentals, plus technical stuff that has been tested and that I have been able to make money on.) In that regard, the contents of the book are like homeopathic medicine. There are enthusiastic, nearly religious claims that it works, but there are no double blind tests. When you do do tests on homeopathic medicine, they show either no effect, or effect so weak, that aspirin would be better. Same here.

This book is excellent if you want to know how to construct the DeMark indicators. It tells you all the parameters and goes into all the subtleties. However, if you are buying this book to write a black box it doesn't give you a full trading strategy. The reason for this is it allocates very little time on exit strategy - 95% of the book is on entry. Additionally there is no description as to how the default parameters have been decided. (The 9 and 13 particularly - they are just assumed from page one.) However, as I have said, if you are looking for a book that clearly explains the entry techniques that DeMark uses this is for you.
