Critical Acclaim for Previous Editions:
"One of the best books on technical analysis to come out since Edwards and Magee's classic text in 1948.... Belongs on the shelf of every serious trader and technical analyst."
"...Technical Analysis Explained [is] widely regarded as the standard work for this generation of chartists."
Traders and investors are creatures of habit who reactand often overreactin predictable ways to rising or falling stock prices, breaking business news, and cyclical financial reports. Technical analysis is the art of observing how investors have regularly responded to events in the past and using that knowledge to accurately forecast how they will respond in the future. Traders can then take advantage of that knowledge to buy when prices are near their bottoms and sell when prices are close to their highs.
Since its original publication in 1980, and through two updated editions, Martin Pring's Technical Analysis Explained has showed tens of thousands of investors, including many professionals, how to increase their trading and investing profits by understanding, interpreting, and forecasting movements in markets and individual stocks. Incorporating up-to-the-minute trading tools and technologies with the book's long-successful techniques and strategies, this comprehensively revised fourth edition provides new chapters on:
- Candlesticks and one- and two-bar price reversals, especially valuable for intraday and swing traders
- Expanded material on momentumincluding brand new interpretive techniques from the Directional Movement System and Chaunde Momentum Oscillator to the Relative Momentum Index and the Parabolic
- Expanded material on volume, with greater emphasis on volume momentum along with new indicators such as the Demand Index and Chaikin Money Flow
- Relative strength, an increasingly important and until now underappreciated arm of technical analysis
- Application of technical analysis to contrary opinion theory, expanding the book's coverage of the psychological aspects of trading and investing
Technical analysis is a tool, nothing more, yet few tools carry its potential for dramatically increasing a user's trading success and long-term wealth. Let Martin Pring's landmark Technical Analysis Explained provide you with a step-by-step program for incorporating technical analysis into your overall trading strategy and increasing your predictive accuracy and potential profit with every trade you make.

If you can get past the editorial issues, the book is a good collection of almost any interesting technical indicator that is available. While this book cannot be a substitute for the classic book by Murphy on technical investing, it is still a good resource for any investor. Of specific interest to the reader who is already aware of the technical investing (and a Murphy fan), the sections on "psychological strategies" is an interesting read. Other than that the book presents information from a huge variety of sources that has anything to do with indicators and oscillators. If you want to invest in only 1 book on technical investing, the book by Murphy is a better bet, with its better organization, editing and use of examples. This book, however, is a welcome addition, and not necessarily a must-have.
If you want to be able to namedrop every single method of technical analysis when around your investing friends then this book is for you.
If you want somewhere to look with a quick description of everything then this might be for you.
BUT if you want a book with useful insights, specific ideas for your Trading and with a good chance of making you rich then this is NOT for you.
The book has been on my shelf for some years now and once in a while I start to read in it but I give up Again. This book "has it all" but really doesn't have anything after all. Martin Pring brings in so many aspects of Trading than I guess any new trader would run away screaming.
I've given the book three stars due to the amount of methods described in the book. But when new traders approach me and ask me where to start this book would never be on the list.
Any way most of the knowledge in this book is easily found on the internet today. So with a simple Google search you would get much more relevant and specific knowledge and you save your Money.
I used to be ardent follower or Technical Analysis. But after 3 years of experience, though in a smaller market, I now strongly believe that Technicals don't have any foot-hold of their own. These only move with the Fundamentals.
I have read this book. On the whole I found this a great book. The reason that I have given 3 stars is not about the book that remain below my expectations, but it's about the Technical Analysis that actually remained below my expectations!!!
