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.
