This is an excellent book for learning the stock market. It goes throught many facets of the stock market in an organize manner. It reminds me of the text books that I read for Calculus, Physic, etc. ORGANIZED. However, I was told that this book is more for the professionals of the trade. But don't let that intimidate you if you really want to learn the market. You will see that after reading this book, you will have the knowledge to go on to reading more technical books with greater understanding than if you didn't have the knowlegde from reading this book.

This book is one of my greatest possessions. It allows you to forego the boring fundamental analysis and look at the markets through different eyes, Geometrical Eyes. Easy to use on any market that is trending (in reality that's every market) Murphy's ideas transcend the stock market and allow you to navigate the Forex Market with ease
