Book Description

The most authoritative reference in the field! Considered the best book ever written about chart patterns, Technical Analysis of Stock Trends, Seventh Edition is the definitive text on technical market analysis.Now available in Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, and English, this easy-to-read text incorporates the pioneering technical work of Dow, Hamilton, and Schabacker, with analysis tools used by investors today.
Since the first edition was published 50 years ago, nearly one million investors have benefited from these time-tested approaches to understanding the market action of stocks and futures. Robert Edwards' practical clarification of the Dow Theory and his explanations of reversal and consolidation patterns, trendlines, and support or resistance levels are among the most useful analysis tools available to investors. John Magee's proven methods, developed over a lifetime of analysis, remain the most effective measures ever developed for determining reliable buy or sell signals.
This updated and revised 7th Edition adds new charts, data, references, and other material, while preserving the classic proven techniques developed by Edwards and Magee. From corn to copper, T-bonds to yen, you'll learn how to read the signals that alert you to trading opportunities. You'll see how many of today's "hot" technology issues validate classic charting principles.
