From the Back Cover:

Praise for Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians

“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
 
“This book is an excellent contribution to technical analysis literature. The authors are careful not to overstate the powers of technical analysis, and they include an appendix on statistical procedures and end-of-chapter review questions to empower the new technical analysis student. As either a stand-alone text or as a companion to other technical analysis books, this book should appear on every technician’s bookshelf.”
--Hank Pruden, Professor of Business and Executive Director, Institute for Technical Market Analysis, Ageno School of Business, and Golden Gate University
