His charm and wit in explaining the keys to successful investing will make his book, Deemer on Technical Analysis, a must-read, and an all-time classic for first time investors and professionals alike." -- Paul Desmond "Lowry Research"

Format: Hardcover
Unlike so many books produced on "technical analysis" of the markets, which are written from a "trader's" perspective, it's great to now have guidance from an "investor's investor". While Mr. Deemer is well known and respected from having held key guidance positions with major fund companies, as well as from feature articles in BARRON'S,other professional publications and lectures, this book has given him space in which to detail concepts which he has found to be beneficial for the investor/long-term trader. I have been an admirer of his work since learning about him when he was selected by Gerald Tsai to head his research when Mr. Tsai left Fidelity Funds to form his own mutual fund company. I'm glad to have this book, not only for my own review, but for my children's gaining knowledge from a solid source. /s/ Sam Hale, Chartered Market Technician

Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the best books I have ever read about investment strategy. It is not a list of various technical indicators (go to John Murphy or Martin Pring for that) but rather an old pro speaking from the heart about the importance of technical and fundamental factors. He gives his expert opinion on how to use the information we have. A difficult subject made easy spiced with anecdotes and humor.

A few gems from the book:
Watch CNBC and CNN like the pros - turn off the sound!
Remember: Fear is a stronger emotion than greed.
Remember: When the time comes to buy you won't want to.
Never ignore the second subpoena.
Flying computers - When investors are hurling their computers out the window in disgust, it is a good sign we are close to a bottom.
Nothing is as bullish as a Failed Head-and Shoulders Top

12 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Robert J. Farrell on February 3, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This book on a complex subject is easy to read and contains much wisdom. The references to all the people who contributed to learning how markets work and how to exploit them makes this compendium a great history lesson. This, however, is more than a how to book...it is full of the authors experiences where practical application of technical analysis was utilized. I have not written a book about technical analysis because I thought just about everything about the subject had been adequately covered by others. This book has proved me wrong. I particularly like the way Mr. Deemer personalized the narrative and revealed his sense of humor. I am happy to recommend the book to beginners and professionals alike. An excellent legacy. Bob Farrell

If you want to feel like your sitting around a fire chatting with a retired guy about the good ole days, then read this book. If you want serious education on technical analysis, then you might want to get a different book. There are only a small number of actual charts in this book and a lot of talk. If you're going to describe chart, then isn't essential that there's a real chart with every discussion? You could boil this book down to about 25 good pages and recycle the rest. Several times, the author even goes into a fair amount of detail about a trend only to say that it only worked years ago and doesn't matter today. Sorry, but I don't get it.

Format: Hardcover
Deemer's hot and on target. More often you hear "you can't make money by trying to time the market" That's true, unless you know how. This author has over 40 year experience in doing just that and now that he has entered retirement he wanted to share that experience so you too can make money in the market. Adding a large touch of wit and lessons he learned from some of the tops in the technical field this book has to be the one you buy. It's a technical guide, a reference manual, and history book all rolled up in one. Ask anyone and they will tell you the way to make money in the market is" Buy low and sell high" when you have finished reading, Deemer on Technical Analysis, you will know what the experts have known, and that is when to buy and when to sell. I need to admit that I have been following Deemer's market strategies for many years, and doing fine, but now as an individual investor I have learned to put together my own plans on buying or selling and more importantly how to chart, and what to chart so I can see clearly and easily. I have read a lot about the technical analysis of markets and admittedly was not sure sometimes what I read when I was finished, but not this book. Deemer on Technical Analysis is written in plain English--not geek, it flows more like a good novel. Buy it-use it-learn from it and most important-have fun as you become the person that makes money no matter what the market is doing.

Format: Hardcover
If you've been interested in learning about technical analysis but were afraid to tackle it, "Deemer on Technical Analysis" is for you. And it's not just for beginners, either. The language and tone is conversational, explanatory when needed, and generous with illustrative and humorous anecdotes--what a relief! Walter Deemer appears to be able to take a complex topic, such as a technical view of the irrationality of markets, and distill it into a story (see Fable of the Fishing Boat, p. 58). He was also involved in the nitty-gritty of markets over a span of time of enormous technical change--beginning in 1963 when there were no quote machines at individual desks (much less on one's phone) through the present--so he relates his market wisdom with years of trend analysis and investing lessons. (Another anecdote of interest is when he happened to be leaning over the Teletype newswire machine when the first announcement of the Kennedy Assassination came though. p.39.) This book is completely accessible to investors of all levels of knowledge and interest, containing many helpful tips, as well as cautions--get up to speed on the markets with this book!
