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.

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!
