A few months ago, I read a book called "The Technical Analysis Course" by Thomas Meyers and I'm reaching the end of another book called "Technical Analysis" by Charles Kirkpatrick. Before reading those, my first exposure to T/A was a short book called "Stikky Charts." The "Stikky Charts" book taught basic reversal and consolidation patterns, trendlines, channels, support, resistance, etc. Which I've been able to use successfully. I read the other ones however, and I'm seeing Fibonacci, Bollinger bands, Oscillators, and a lot of other complex systems. Which makes me wonder if some T/S methods go overboard. I'm sure some people aren't gonna feel the same way because they might be more gifted than others are in the arena of mathematics. But what about you? What T/A methods do YOU use? Do you stick to the basics or do you use complex mathematical formulas to do your trading?
