Book came beautiful. I originally ordered technical analysis of stock trends by Edwards and magee because it was on the cheaper side (and some books I have read mentioned this book. Even murphy''s book mentions it.) However, for beginners I think murphy''s book is way better because the edition i recieved in Edwards book has very hard to see charts. The writting style is very old too and hard to follow. I didn''t think that it would be a problem, but it ended up making me not want to read it to the end, which I didn''t at first. Murphy''s book is well written and explains things in an easy to understand manner. There will be no flipping pages being fustrated trying to interpret the words. I can see why this is considered the "Bible" of technical analysis. It is definitely the best book on the subject. I have also ordered technical analysis by Kirkpatrick. I still have yet to read it, but after skimming through it i think it''s over rated for beginners. There were some reviews that mentioned this book, and the reason I looked Into it. It''s looks like a very interesting book, and I like the writing style, however I don''t think it should be the first book for traders. Murphy''s book is the go to book. Every other book should be secondary in my opinion.

I purchased this because I felt my insights into technical analysis were still limited after reading a host of other finance and trading books. Now that I''ve finished reading this, I feel confident that I understand the subject and can, for the most part, explain it to others.

Have no misconceptions - this is a thick book that deals with a lot of arguably dry subjects like retracement percentages, oscillation ranges, and specific price movements; you will find parts of it hard to get through, but I urge you to persevere! (I found it very manageable to read two full chapters a night after work (around 50 pages total), and I finished the book in about ten days.)

I found almost all of the information useful, and ended up taking almost twenty pages of notes. (Compared to the typical 3-5 pages that I usually do on other trading books.) The section on Japanese candlesticks in particular was quite useful.

I absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking to develop an understanding of technical analysis, or to someone who has one but wants to improve it.

Excellent. One of the best Technical Analysis books I''ve ever read. I started my career as a financial advisor by following the work of Alan Shaw and Louise Yamada. This book is almost like having Shaw and Yamada''s notes on your bookshelf. This should be required reading for all Wirehouse trainees. Great as refresher course for the seasoned professional. Might be a little too egg headish for DYI investors.

This book covers a significant amount of vital areas of stock market technical analysis. The author has presented a wide range of topics such as dow theory, chart patterns, candle patterns, moving averages and various indicators, Elliot wave and cycle theory, relative strength, market breadth, and inter-market linkage. The author even managed to present the basic ideas of the trading system.

Reading his book is similar to taking a university course in that the professor sketches an outline and briefly highlights the main points. Afterward, it is the students who will read the rest of the references. This book is just like that! If you only read this book and feel like you can identify the chart patterns or recognize Elliot waves, please think again! Many people nowadays use this book as the bible for technical analysis rather than studying the excellent references recommended by the author. Once they fail to identify the chart patterns or notice the noisy indicator signals, they claim that technical analysis is bullshit as some of the books here on the Amazon.

IMHO, this book mainly provides a breadth rather than depth. John''s book is a top-level highlight of the coming attractions. However, the author offers a comprehensive list of the reference materials from specific domain masters. Without studying the details from the domain masters, you are unlikely to succeed in the technical analysis.

In addition to this book, I have also bought John''s - The Visual Investor, as the book uses many new charting tools that seem to be a compliment and upgrade from this original 1999 version. In summary, both books are excellent that cover the enormous landscape of technical analysis. I highly recommend them.

The book goes very deep in many theories and seems to introduce most concepts. I am however not convinced about the merits. It seems to explain a lot after the fact, but there are arguments for more or less any development in the future, no matter where we stand today.... See more
The book goes very deep in many theories and seems to introduce most concepts. I am however not convinced about the merits. It seems to explain a lot after the fact, but there are arguments for more or less any development in the future, no matter where we stand today.
I''m missing more data to back up the validity of the claims. If these patterns are more right than wrong, it should be simple to pull some statistics on this.

Purchased this book recommended by my lecturer. The content is fine, but the book quality is so bad, smudge ink, graphics demonstrate are not even straight lines (all candlesticks look like thry have been chewed by a mouse). I suspect this is not an genuine copy. Avoid!

John Murphy is so good at explaining the fundamentals of Technical Analysis and this book is a continuation of his mastery. This book should be one of the foundations to any trader''s arsenal and I can''t recommend it enough. It does peak your interest in reading the extensive referenced books and those will be on my list as well. Get this book, read it a few times, and then revisit it every few years; you won''t go wrong.

I am working my way through the three levels of the CMT qualification, and after finishing level 2 study, pick up this text to go through in detail before the exam. It is the number 1 recommended book by some of the technicians which I have begun to follow. The book covers all the main aspects of technical analysis and is recommended as a "must-read" for good reason. Sections of this book are directly related to the CMT curriculum. I read the whole book cover-to-cover, twice. I need to know a little about many things for the exam, but know that I will be referring to some sections (like Trading Systems) many times in the future, and hopefully never going back to look at the section on others (point and figure, cycles). I don''t know any individual investors who trade Futures markets, but for those of us who need to understand those markets, they are covered. The book is very well written and easy to follow. The best way to read it, is to take a chapter, then look at recent stock charts and try to apply the thoughts of the chapter to real-world current price action of assets.

Se eu disser que não creio em nada que AT diz você deve chegar a uma dessas conclusões :porque levar a sério a crítica de um livro justamente se ela partiu de uma pessoa que não crê no assunto?Se ele não acredita em AT porque comprou este livro. Respondo , apesar de militar no mercado por mais de 30 anos , em várias instituições e em diversos mercados , continuo aprendendo.Não deixo que nenhum livro me escape , principalmente sobre psicologia do trader , visto que desde o ano passado tenho vivido ( ao menos tentado) só de day trade com minha própria conta.Li muito sobre Análise Técnica , lia os boletins que Didi Aguiar e Márcio Noronha mandavam pras mesas de bancos e corretoras , livros em português ,três sobre candlesticks , " Japanese" , "Chart Patterns" , Explained" do Pring ( depois descobri que tem em português no site do Márcio Noronha) e jamais consegui entender como alguém enxerga padrão no gráfico , mas sei que pouquíssimas pessoas conseguem , admiro , mas ainda não consegui. Devido ao que está escrito acima é que considero o livro do Murphy o melhor deles , o autor foi o primeiro a admitir a dificuldade e a limitação da AT para os mercados futuros.Uma vez que os Futuros convergem com o ativo objeto ao passar do tempo não cabe admitir que 98200 pontos do índice Futuro Abril tenha o mesmo valor após um dia , após uma semana então... Murphy também me pareceu ( falo como pequeno conhecedor) o mais didático dos autores que li , ainda percebi que a escrita leve e , sobretudo , despretensiosa me deixou mais confortável do que autores que falam sobre " probabilidades com " certeza".O livro ainda conta com uma parte sobre manejo de risco bem interessante e a respeito dos diversos indicadores , Murphy , ao meu ver , foi bem mais didático que seus " concorrentes" , e isso me permitiu ver a que devo dar mais a tenção . Ótimo livro mesmo pra quem levanta dúvidas sobre a eficiência da AT. Recomendo mesmo sendo partidário da Tendência , minha técnica consiste em seguir quem "manda" e não discutir.
