    Chart Patterns by Bruce M Kamich

    This book clearly shows Professor Kamich's mastery of the subject. I must say I am privileged to have him as a professor of finance at Baruch College at the City University of New York. Prof. Kamich's pragmatism is apparent in choosing the size of the book. The book is what the French call "Tout cuit". A very small size and thin book which could be carried easily anywhere but yet has everything one needs to learn about chart patterns.
    The work produced by Prof. Kamich in this book testifies to the experience accumulated from different scholar accomplishments (book written) and multiple responsible positions held (Vice President at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney's Technical analysis Group and coauthors their flagship publication the Daily Technical Market Leader etc..). The book consists of thirteen chapters which begins by Why Study Patterns and ends with The Future of Chart Patterns which is a complete package of charts patterns. Throughout the book I can see again and again how sharp, precise coherent the author is and reminds me the man I have known in class. Remember one thing the author has been working on chart patterns since the late sixties

    A Quality Must Buy

    A well structured book with objective information on patterns and methods for gaining from them. Covers all major patterns and even delves into other complex topics like gaps and inside day bars. A quality resource for the novice or professional - buy it!
