Product description

From the Back Cover

The Comprehensive, Objective Guide to the Discipline of Technical Analysis: Fully Updated with New Research, Techniques, Theory, Data, Charts, and Resources

  • Suitable for courses leading to the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) designation and Series 86 exam exemption
  • Follows a clear, logical sequence from beginner to advanced--with hundreds of up-to-date examples
  • Covers indicators, cycles, strength, charts, trend confirmation, testing, trading systems, and much more
  • Includes extensive new coverage of sentiment testing, flow-of-funds analysis, and many other topics

Now extensively updated, this is the most complete, objective, and up-to-date tutorial and reference for the entire discipline of technical analysis.

Charles D. Kirkpatrick II and Julie R. Dahlquist thoroughly introduce the field’s principles and history and assess the controversies surrounding its effectiveness. Drawing on the latest research, they systematically discuss markets and market indicators, trend and chart pattern analysis techniques, trend confirmations, selection of potential investments, system testing, and more.

Already the field’s most comprehensive and reliable guidebook, Technical Analysis, Third Edition, has been fully updated to reflect the latest theory, techniques, data, chart examples, and research resources. Selected by the Market Technicians Association as the official companion to its prestigious Chartered Market Technician (CMT) program, this text objectively introduces the entire discipline.

Using updated illustrations, the authors show how to analyze both markets and individual issues and present complete investment systems and portfolio plans. Readers learn how to use momentum indicators, seasonal effects, and many other key techniques. The authors reveal which chart patterns and indicators remain most reliable, show how to test systems, and help you use technical analysis to mitigate risk.

With nearly 30% new coverage, this edition offers significant new coverage of black swans, confirmation patterns, trading system design, market and issue selection, and many new or relatively new indicators, including Kagi, Renko, Kase, Ichimoku, Clouds, and DeMark. Expanded coverage of sentiment testing now reflects VIX and CDS indexes, unconventional indicators, and more. The authors also present extensive new coverage of flow-of-funds analysis, including money velocity, bank liquidity, yield curves/spreads, and Fed funds.
