From the Author:

A thorough, honest and objective research evaluation.
"Thomas A. Meyers, CPA, and I did our best to provide a thorough, honest and objective research evaluation of 110 diverse market timing indicators. We are grateful for the kind words of our fellow professional analysts, reprinted below." -- Robert W. Colby, CMT.

"This useful book should be on the desk of every technical analyst." -- Arthur Merrill.

"This is the most thoroughly documented research into a broad array of technical indicators and tools that I have ever seen. I know of no other book that has been as thorough in presenting hard evidence to its readers… Highly recommended for both experienced and inexperienced investors." -- Gerald Appel.

"An excellent overview of 110 of the best known technical market indicators with a superb introductory section that explains how technical analysis is evolving with the aid of statistical verification and computer applications. This book is an indispensable single volume for both novice and professional market analysts." -- Ted C. Earle.

"The Encyclopedia of Technical Market Indicators will become the standard reference guide for stock market technicians and analysts. It pulls no punches — by providing an honest, extensively researched, appraisal of virtually every known indicator." -- Louis B. Mendelsohn.

"Credible…systematic analysis…commendable for its willingness to identify indicators whose forecasting value has been exaggerated or is non-existent, as well as those that really do have predictive ability… If you are a serious student of the market… this book is for you… Must reading." -- Norman G. Fosback.

"Compiles a vast amount of detailed research… puts forth the rational behind and the methods used to research… gives detailed information on each of the selected indicators with definitions, examples, charts, and tables… hundreds of hours of research presented in a technical but lucid style, replete with excellent examples…The book deserves a place on the shelves of seri! ous stock market investors…" -- Robert D. Adamshick.

"Will provide many happy hours of study. Technical studies have been number-crunched through years of data…to provide tabulated summaries of profit and loss, maximum drawdown length of winning and losing trades, number of stop loses hit… in fact most of the testing that you and I have been intending to carry out for years." -- Henry Southworth.

"A terrific addition to any investor’s reference bookshelf." -- Robert Prechter.
