If you take only one of the many techniques explained in this book, you will profit. For example "Net Change Oscillators":

Simple averages are the sum of a number of values divided by the number. As we move along the time line, the oldest value is dropped off and the latest value is added on. The change in the average is the difference between the latest and the oldest (i.e. the net change) divided by the number. The change in the average is called the velocity of price change; therefore, the net change is a measure of that velocity.

When the net change is plotted along a time line, it oscillates across a zero line. This is called the net-change oscillator (NCO). Now let me describe a phenomenon that has given correct signals nine times out of ten in the course of many years of trading commodities, bank bills, indexes, and currencies.

The method is dead-simple: in an uptrend, you draw a guideline across the bottom tips of NCO, in a downtrend the guideline is drawn across the top tips. When the NCO penetrates the guideline, a trend change is imminent[...]
This book is highly recommended.

180 pages of more techniques than you could possibly use. The formulas are well explained, the strategies (series of 7, magic number of three, moving averages, exponential moving averages, stochastics, csi, rsi, regression analysis, etc) are also well explained. As somone who has searched for the ultimate formula, oscillator, technique or what ever for trading commodities, after reading this book, I've concluded that you can find a chart or group of charts to justify ANY idea. Given any market, depending on which combination of indicators one chooses, one could justify any decision. Now what good is that?

Techniques of a Professional Commodity Chart Analyst is the bible for chart traders. This book is filled with charting techniques that most traders have either forgotten about, never knew, or are unwilling to divulge. It is said that a technique is only good if it is proven over time in the markets, these techniques work. Arthur Sklarew has done an excellent job of describing these techniques. If you use even half of the techniques described in this book you will be a better that average trader!
