Books on technical analysis that have simple trading systems in them

Discussion in 'Technical Analysis' started by Chuck Krug, May 2, 2008.

  1. Anyone know any books on technical analysis that have simple trading systems with well defined entry and exit points in them?
    Was thinking about something along the lines of moving averages crossovers.
  2. Am looking for something that I can trade manually to hone my execution skills
  3. wouldn't you rather have something that works?
  4. while not entirely dedicated to trading systems or TA (it has systems examples in the back). Michael Covel's trend following book has a moving average crossover example system in the back you can try to replicate and compare results to.
  5. other suggestions are welcome of course
  6. thanks, will take a look at it.
  7. what should i order?
