This is one of the best technical analysis books to date. This covers when to buy, when to sell, and how to sell stocks short. This book also has an in depth chapter on market stages which is worth the entire cost of the book alone. I still use the 30-week MA which I learned about in Chapter One!

This wins the award for the worst title of all technical analysis books! This is mostly a swing trading book. It has very little to do with day trading. It still is one of the best no-nonsense books on technical analysis ever written. You will find so many secrets and stock market wisdom in this book that are not found in any other book on technical analysis. A must read!
