what would be a good/comprehensive/solid TA book?

Discussion in 'Technical Analysis' started by econometrics, Nov 2, 2010.

  1. i am not a fan of TA, i think most of it = BS, but i believe some of the tools/concepts are useful in understanding market actions.

    I know the basics of TA and have read Murphy, TA Explained, Robert, etc. I am more interested in a book that covers most of the important techniques of TA in a compact manner + some insights. please suggest a solid book.
  2. I assume you meant "trading systems and methods," but I was thinking the same thing, particularly since his handle is econometrics...
    Plenty of modern econometrics based knowledge the layman can follow in the book as well. It's a pretty large book, but very comprehensive-- only complaint, is it doesn't go beyond some of the basic themes covered (markov modeling for example) with many practical examples.
  3. Oops. Thanks for the heads-up. Poor proofreading on my part.
