Praise For Stock Trader's Almanac
"Historical price patterns continue to work because human nature doesn't change, and neither does the law of supply and demand. Study past successful stocks if you want to know what future ones will look like. Stock Trader's Almanac is all about historical facts."—William J. O'Neil, Chairman and founder, Investor's Business Daily
"All my almost four decades in professional investing, I've found this annual tour de force fascinating. There is a lot of provocative here to whet your whistle and adrenaline-rush your curiosity. If you don't find something here that tickles your mind, you probably don't have one."—Ken Fisher, CEO and founder, Fisher Investments, 25-year Forbes columnist, and author of The Only Three Questions That Count and How to Smell a Rat
"The Stock Trader's Almanac is a treasure trove of solid-gold investment nuggets. No serious trader should have it far from his hands."—John Mauldin, author of Bull's Eye Investing and Thoughts from the Frontline
"I've been reading the Almanac since Yale first published it back in 1968. I wouldn't miss a year for anything. It's the perfect reference for every trader's desk."—Larry Williams, Darlings of the Dow fund manager, trader, and author
"Whether I am researching seasonality trends or old Wall Street sayings, or am simply in need of some good old-fashioned investment horse sense, I start with the Stock Trader's Almanac. I have been a student of Yale and Jeffrey Hirsch's Almanac research for years, and look forward to future lessons."—Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor's Equity Research

However, many times these events change, the patterns drift. In that case you need to have deeper understanding on the topic.
While this book may be a good companion, you need to read something by Toby Crabel or Linda Raschke, these are both hedge fund managers that also trade full time. Read them to see how professionals trade and then read this book.
Besides that, the authors have been doing phenomenal job with this book for at least 10 years, and every year the information is updated.
It is rare that a book can be republished every year and yet be an indispensable addition to every investor's library. The Stock Trader's Almanac by Jeffrey and Yale Hirsh is such a book. The wealth of information presented on market patterns and tendencies in the market presents a variety of facts and figures that are important to all investors.
The Stock Trader's Almanac can serve as a calendar for 2010 and is presented in a calendar format. This makes it a perfect Christmas gift for anyone interested in the markets.
The widely followed January Barometer is a must read and a must understand for all. The year 2010 will present us with a Midterm Election and Hirsch's coverage will be followed by many.
The comparison of our recent financial crisis to eleven other financial crises since 1900 is fascinating reading. Every Month starts out with a summary of facts about that month's trading. It is followed by Vital Statistics for the month that prepares you for what may happen again. If you get your copy before Christmas, you will learn and understand what a "Santa Claus Rally" is all about. The stock market makes almost all its gain over a specific 6 month period. This information alone is worth the price of the book or calendar. What about President's Day? You will want to know ahead of time what history has shown. Gerald Appel made the MACD indicator a standard in every trader's technical analysis software toolkit. Wouldn't it be nice to learn a market timing strategy for this indicator? The Hirsch's give you some very interesting strategies for use with the indicator. Are you interested in what month of the quarter has the greatest gains? Once again all the details are presented in the book.
Where do you find not only the best 10 days by percentage and points for the DOW, S&P 500, Nasdaq and Russell indexes? Right here in the Stock Trader's Almanac.
There is even a daily market probability calendar. No gambling, please.
I could go on and on with examples of the wealth of the information contained in this publication. Each day of the year, each month of the year is packed with information and research. Their free newsletter is a great companion to the book/calendar and will update you on additional information throughout the year.
This is one book that is great to own and great to give. The recipient will think of you every day as they use this valuable investor's companion.

Also makes a nice diary. I have the past 3 years and plan trades based upon historical information. But only take action if other current indicators agree.
Amazon sold it at the lowest price I could find online.
Al 2014 has added some updated stats. There is a good discuss of Midterm elections (2014). Also, they have added seasonality patterns for the major indices (S&P, DOW).
Traders and investors ought to add this volume to their library. The guide will pay for itself with one good trade when the Almanac hints their is a high probability of an event (ex. market move at Triple Witching, or windows dressing at beginning of quarter.
