5.0 out of 5 stars Makes learning a complex concept easy and fun!, February 5, 2012
This review is from: Stikky Stock Charts: Learn the 8 major chart patterns used by professionals and how to interpret them to trade smart--in (Paperback)
I picked this up in the bookstore last night, along with several other books on trading. I've also read many others and have to say I'd recommend this one to anyone and everyone. Technical analysis can be intimidating at first, and this book makes learning the basic chart patterns and trendlines simple.

As others have mentioned, don't be put off by the listed page length. This is similar to a children's picture book, with just a few sentences on each page and lots of charts and it's very clearly laid out so that you learn as you go and each concept builds on the one before it. It will take about an hour to go through the whole book.

What I really liked was how it used real charts and after they'd show a pattern, they'd then give you 4 or 5 examples and ask you to analyze and decide what you'd do, would you invest money in the stock? hold if you owned it? or sell? Then on the next page they'd show what actually happened.

I had a few lightbulb moments reading this, and I thought I knew some of this stuff already!

I think this book would make a great gift for someone new to charting/investing. I'm going to get a copy for my Dad who thinks he knows it already. I bet he's going to be surprised.
