The fact that this text is still being reprinted 53 years after its initial publication should tell you all you need to know. It is as relevant to today's markets as ever. The companies may have changed, but the patterns haven't. This edition contains the basics of trading stock indexes, discussions on options, risk, the significance of technology on technical analysis and trading and numerous other additions
it remains an essential volume for students and practitioners of chart analysis.

--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
Technical Analysis of Stock Trends, 8th Edition, is a critical reference for investors--especially in today's tumultuous markets. This seminal book--the first to produce a methodology for interpreting and profiting from the predictable behavior of investors and markets--revolutionized technical investment approaches and continues to show traders and investors how to make money regardless of what the market is doing.
Now, with the addition of noted technical analysis authority W. H. Charles Bassetti (editor)--as well as charts and graphs that pertain to today's market environment and major stocks--this completely updated and revised edition confirms the wisdom of the original work for today's markets. Technical traders and chartists will turn to it for:
* Information on utilizing electronic markets, the Internet, wireless communications, and new exchanges, plus current ideas on portfolio management and risk management
* Chapters on futures and derivatives charting and trading
* Expanded treatment of ""runaway"" markets--to help put the recent Internet stock craze in perspective
""Chart formations,"" states Charles Bassetti in the preface, ""are the language of the market."" Technical Analysis of Stock Trends, 8th Edition, translates that language for a new generation of technical traders and investors."
