This book is about arming investors with one simple tool that will enhance the investment decision-making process - the chart. It is not the Holy Grail and even if applied exactly as offered there is no guarantee that the reader will be successful. But owning a high quality hammer is no guarantee that the user will build a beautiful house. The hammer is a tool and in most cases the user will still need other tools - and knowledge - to build that house. Despite its enormous and still growing popularity, technical market analysis still gets a bad rap.Purveyors of this art have been called tealeaf readers and many similar names but that has nothing to do with what technical analysis is attempting to do. If we strip away all the fancy indicators and obtuse jargon what is left is time-tested method of finding investment opportunities and assessing their risk. There is no fortune telling here; only figuring out what we can do about the market. And what we do is the only part of the markets that we can control. It should be stressed that this book will not replace the reader's current methods of stock selection and investment strategies. What it can do, however, is add a new dimension to the analysis to confirm or refute what is already known. Basically, there is no need to give up other methods for selecting stocks although by the end of the book the reader may be drawn to further learning and eventually discover that charts can, indeed, be the primary, if not sole, investment decision-making tools.

Review:

Michael Kahn's new book is a nice, clear attempt to explain the art of technical analysis to novices. [It] fulfils its stated purpose very nicely, and will help newcomers decide whether technical analysis is really for them. --Dominic Picarda, Investors Chronicle
