Like the first edition, the new SECOND EDITION simply, clearly and completely explains all the technical market indicators that are used in examining stock trends. At more than 800 pages, this book is double the size of the first edition and is COMPLETELY updated. I bought three copies of the second edition as soon as it came out and I gave two copies to my friends. This book tells what the indicators measure, what their components are, how they are formulated, and what exactly they purport to indicate. It describes their various realms of usefullness and their limitations. The book is packed with charts and examples and is very, very interesting to read. I bought the first edition about six years ago and have found it the only useful reference of its type. The second edition is entirely updated and expanded and is ESSENTIAL for understanding technical market indicators and stock trends. I recommend that EVERYONE in the industry and all serious independant traders and researchers get the new SECOND EDITION of this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Robert Colby's book is a valuable resource for any practitioner of technical analysis, or consumer of technical analysis reports. Every TA method one is likely to encounter is explained clearly, and in detail. This is a noteworthy step forward in bringing the sometimes obscure field of TA into focus. Colby¿s bent is toward the science of TA, which is both a strength and a weakness here. His book places considerable emphasis on the backtesting he has done on the TA methods presented, which is interesting, but would have served as better material for an Appendix. This book might have been more likely destined for greatness had more time been devoted to the human factor, namely, ¿What is going on in terms of market psychology that a particular indicator is trying to identify?¿ Such considerations helped to elevate Edwards and Magee¿s ¿Technical Analysis of Stock Trends¿ to cult status. However, Colby has created here a solid reference volume; and being the clear and meticulous technical analyst and writer that he seems to be, I have no doubt that we will be hearing much more about Mr. Colby in the future.Was this review helpful?

I find the new second edition to be an outstanding benchmark reference and a significant leap forward over the great first edition. It is the only book in the field that clearly and concisely describes the methodology and philosophy behind every indicator and technique I have ever heard of. It is a truly invaluable tool to traders on all levels! furthermore it is the only book that has been able to describe processes such walk forward optimization in a clear and logical way - something that I have been looking for everywhere.Was this review helpful?
