Praise for New Frontiers in Technical Analysis

"This is a groundbreaking book that discloses many trade secrets previously known only to a select few market data managers. By drawing upon vast amounts of historic Bloomberg system data, Paul Ciana shows exactly which technical analysis techniques are most popular globally, who uses them, and when. Having looked back, Paul then goes on to highlight several very new techniques and their application to today's markets. An excellent contribution to the world of technical analysis literature and a must-read for all serious technicians."—Adam Sorab, President, International Federation of Technical Analysts; Head of Technical Research, CQS (UK) LLP

"The optimum word in technical analysis is 'change,' and that is exactly what this book addresses: the important new changes taking place in the subject today and the myriad of ways that technical analysis identifies critical changes in and between markets. Paul introduces us to new ways of visualizing changes in relative activity: changes in seasonal cycles, changing rules and much more. Enjoy New Frontiers, it will enable you to set up your own disciplines and to embrace change."—Ralph Acampora, CMT, Chief Technical Analyst, Alverita LLC

"Paul has opened the door for a new type of book involving technical analysis. In the past, there have been great books written that interviewed technical traders and investors. Paul has introduced a book that allows successful technical analysts to share their personal strategies and innovative techniques. Each section is an in-depth look at their favorite technical work. The section by my friend Julius de Kempenaer is worth the cost of the book alone. Nice work, Paul."—Gregory L. Morris, Chief Technical Analyst and Chairman of the Investment Committee, Stadion Money Management; author of Candlestick Charting Explained and The Complete Guide to Market Breadth Indicators

"After reading New Frontiers in Technical Analysis, the aspiring technician will feel as if they just had golf lessons from six recent winners of the Masters."—Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor's Equity Research

"New Frontiers in Technical Analysis is an enlightening book for experienced technicians, and yet still accessible for those who are new to the art. Mr. Ciana has collected the thoughts of five great minds, who present their indicators in a compelling format. Many of the indicators are derivations of the old familiars, such as the MACD and the stochastics, whereas others are nothing short of ground-breaking. From Julius de Kempenaer's Relative Rotation Graphs to Cynthia Kase's Equal True Range Bar Charts, there is something for everyone. A new regime of technicians has clearly arrived, and this book serves as their showcase. In addition, Mr. Ciana gives us a rare look into the worldwide usage of various indicators through his unique position at Bloomberg LP." —Katie Stockton, CMT, Managing Director and Chief Market Technician, MKM Partners
