Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians – by Kirkpatrick II Charles D., Dahlquist Julie R. (2015)

Already the field’s most comprehensive, reliable, and objective guidebook, Technical Analysis, Third Edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the field’s latest advances. Selected by the Market Technicians Association as the official companion to its prestigious Chartered Market Technician (CMT) program, this book systematically explains the theory of technical analysis, presenting academic evidence both for and against it.

Using hundreds of fully updated illustrations and examples, the authors explain the analysis of both markets and individual issues, and present complete investment systems and portfolio management plans.

Technical Analysis, Third Edition thoroughly covers recent advances in pattern recognition, market analysis, and systems management; new confidence tests; popular methods such as Kagi, Renko, Kase, Ichimoku, Clouds, and DeMark indicators; innovations in exit stops, portfolio selection, and testing; and the implications of behavioral bias; and the recent performance of old formulas and methods.
