Now, there's a comprehensive, objective, and reliable tutorial and reference for the entire field of technical analysis. For traders, researchers, and serious investors alike, this is the definitive book on technical analysis. Individual investors and professional investment managers are increasingly recognizing the value of technical analysis in identifying trading opportunities. Moreover, the SECs requirement for analysts and brokers to pass Section 86 exams can now be fulfilled with the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) certification.
Author Charles D. Kirkpatrick II has spent decades using technical analysis to advise major investing institutions -- and he currently teaches the subject to MBA candidates, giving him unique insight into the best ways of explaining its complex concepts. Together with university finance instructor and CMT Dr. Julie Dahlquist, Kirkpatrick systematically explains the theory of technical analysis, presenting academic evidence both for and against it. Using 200+ illustrations, the authors explain the analysis of markets and individual issues, and present a complete investment system and portfolio management plan. Readers will learn how to use tested sentiment, momentum indicators, seasonal affects, flow of funds, and many other techniques. The authors reveal which chart patterns and indicators have been reliable; show how to test systems; and demonstrate how technical analysis can be used to mitigate risk.

"I’ve been reading technical analysis works for forty years. This is the first book on the subject worthy of being called both comprehensive and disciplined. It will be a great asset to both practitioners and serious students alike.”
?Phil Roth, CMT, Chief Technical Market Analyst, Miller Tabak + Co.
“The authors deftly straddle the divide between the artistic and the rigorous aspects of technical analysis. The publication of this text is an important financial-market event and the authors are to be congratulated.”
?John Bollinger, CFA, CMT, President, Bollinger Capital Management
“The authors have done a superb job of making the subject so understandable, setting goals for each chapter, and seeing they are met, with a concise summary at each chapter’s end. After four decades of practicing the subject, I am proud to place my colleagues’ book in a prominent spot in my technical analysis library.”
?Alan R. Shaw, CMT, former Managing Director, Smith Barney, second President of Market Technicians Association
“As both a technical analysis teacher and practitioner, I have long looked for a book that covers the subject from a practitioner’s perspective and at the same time meets a student’s need to learn a complete body of knowledge. Kirkpatrick’s and Dahlquist’s book is the first I have seen that hits the mark on both fronts.”
?Bruce M. Kamich, CMT, Adjunct Professor of Finance, Baruch College, and former president, Market Technicians Association
