Overview

Most investors know that highly profitable trading methods employ a number of technical analysis tools. Unfortunately, choosing the right ones is easier said than done.

In Technical Analysis Tools, professional trader Mark Tinghino cuts through the clutter. First, he demystifies the essential technical approaches such as chart patterns, indicators, Market Profile, and Elliott Wave. He also introduces a new instrument of his own: the cyclical model, which helps identify trend reversals. Next, he provides techniques that turn the tools into trading programs. Those techniques include how to time buying and selling, how to account for the effect of fundamental analysis on technical analysis, and how to use spreads to effectively manage risk.

Real-world examples, objective analyses of how successful investors implement their own trading systems, and dozens of charts and graphs make Technical Analysis Tools exceptionally clear and practical.

    Standard Technical Analysis with Cycles - 1-2 punch

    I have read so many titles on technical analysis over the years, and this one stands out because it is not only a general survey, but it also is a great reference, and Tinghino's work on market cycles is like no other I have seen. Definitely a winning combination there. I highly recommend this book for all types of traders from novice to seasoned professional.

    A Must Read for Traders of All Levels of Experience

    This by far one of the best titles I have read on Technical Analysis. It is a very concise presentation and packed with a wealth of information. The author's research on cycles and market timing is extremely fascinating. He really has broken new ground and come up with a truly unique approach to trading. Buyer beware - you may be up late at night unable to put this one down, as happened to me!
