From the Back Cover:
The Classic, Comprehensive Introduction to Technical Analysis, Updated for Today's Wide-Open Trading Arena
Previous editions of The Technical Analysis Course: A Winning Program for Investors and Traders were big hits with investors, providing precisely what they wanted: an easy to understand overview of technical analysis. In this third edition, author Thomas A. Meyers expands his scope while keeping the focus on technical analysis just as sharp. Included in this edition are completely revised tables and charts plus new lessons on the true value of failed signals, Moving Average Convergence-Divergence (MACD), and Bollinger Bands.
Meyers leads the reader through a personalized course of study on technical analysis techniques that provides the critical tools, materials, and plans necessary to buy, sell, and trade more profitably. Written in a clear, no-nonsense style, The Technical Analysis Course lays the foundation for investors to become expert technical analysts and smarter, more successful traders.
Praise for Previous Editions of THE TECHNICAL ANALYSIS COURSE
"If you are a neophyte in the markets or have a friend who is, this may be the book for you. It won't turn you into an overnight market wizard. You will, however, acquire an excellent grasp of market terminology and be a step ahead toward trading success and fortune."--Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities
"A simple introduction to this . . . widely followed art is given in the book The Technical Analysis Course."--The Wall Street Journal
Technical analysis, long considered by many experts to be the single most reliable method of forecasting market trends and timing significant turns, is an instrumental analytical tool for seizing opportunities in the stock, bond, futures, and options markets. Accurate and unemotional, it is as close as one can get to a scientific approach to investing. Yet in today's turbulent markets, where decisions have become more complex and the overwhelming flood of information more difficult to assimilate, many investors lack a complete working knowledge of this powerful technique.
The Technical Analysis Course, Third Edition, contains everything you need to know to incorporate the power of technical analysis into your own trading program. You will learn how to
- Construct charts using classic tools of technical analysis, updated to take advantage of today's trading realities
- Identify profitable chart patterns, including reversals, consolidation formations, and gaps
- Utilize key analytical tools, including trendlines and channels, support and resistance, moving averages, relative strength analysis, and volume and open interest
Advanced analysis, including a discussion of oscillators, relative strength index, stochastics, Moving Average Convergence-Divergence (MACD), and Bollinger Bands is also presented, along with point and figure and Japanese candlestick charting. Author and market veteran Thomas A. Meyers concludes by presenting a weight-of-evidence approach to technical analysis illustrated with three comprehensive real market examples.
The beauty of technical analysis is that it can be applied effectively to virtually any trading medium and investment time horizon. A technician can analyze stocks, bonds, options, mutual funds, commodities, and many other forms of investments for buy and sell opportunities. And this can be done by examining tic-by-tic, intraday, daily, weekly, monthly, or any other time interval.
Those "in the know" on Wall Street realize that security prices do not move randomly; rather, they move in repetitive and identifiable patterns. Increasingly, knowledgeable investors are turning to technical analysis and using this information to gain a significant advantage over other investors.
It has been proven time and time again that the markets move in trends readily discernible to the technical analyst. The Technical Analysis Course will train you to recognize these trends, act accordingly--and dramatically increase your day-in, day-out profit potential.
