Top technical analyst and Barron’s Online columnist Kahn demystifies technical analysis.
While many investors view technical analysis as a mystical “tea-leaf reading” process, “this could not be further from the truth,” says the author, in the second edition of this handy guide to technical analysis. Indeed, Kahn teaches investors how to bring clarity and objectivity to their market decisions by augmenting their fundamental research with the use of technical analysis. Beginning with a general overview of the subject, the author then moves on to the core concepts of chart analysis and the various facets of the investment process. Finally, he covers more advanced topics like candlesticks, cycles and Elliot waves, and also explains common technical terms and jargon and how to identify patterns, listen to the market and “reality check” broker recommendations.
Investors will appreciate this straightforward and clear guide to technical analysis.

This book is a "must read" if you've wanted to learn more about this sometimes intimidating subject.
Mr. Kahn has done a great job of taking a subject that could be made to appear difficult and he demystifies and truly makes it Plain and Simple to read and understand.
The author touches on many aspects of technical analysis but doesn't go as deeply as Pring or Murphy.
It is a very fundamental and good book for beginner and intermediate traders. I like the simple explanation the author writes.Published 14 days ago by Tan Aik How
