Of all the books on TA that I've bought, and there's been loads, this is by far the most comprehensive and informative. If you're a newbie to TA and don't really know where to start, then this book is a must purchase. It takes you through all the leading technical analysis techniques you'll ever want to learn from Dow theory, to momentum indicators, oscillators, moving averages, candlesticks, very little is left out. It is an extremely extensive guide to TA and the sort of book you can read cover to cover, as well as use as a general reference. If you're a trader, make sure this book is in your trading library.
