This review is from: Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns (Hardcover)
If I were to be deprived of all the trading books in my collection but one, that would be The Encyclopedia. Unlike other literature on the patterns, in this book you will not find clauses like "most of the time", "usually", "seldom". All the information as it's related to the pattern trading is thoroughly backtested.
Few words about the author are due here. I do not believe you will find more ethical individual in the trading community than Mr. Bulkowski is. Unlike others who use their books as an advertising medium to lure you into subscription to their services and seminars, the author simply does not do that. His web site is FREE and he sells nothing but his book.
I can't even say that this book is highly recommended or you should buy this book... Nothing like that. I believe you owe yourself having this book on your desk 24/7 if you are to trade chart patterns. If you do not trade chart patterns then... you should not trade at all as all the "indicators" are nothing but derivatives of the price and volume behavior. Turn of all that noise and focus on patterns and volume and that's what this book is teaching you to do.
