Technicians only?

I'm looking for more books on technical analysis. So far I've read the "Way of the turtles", "The winning edge", "Stock investing for dummies", "The new science of technical analysis", "Fire your stock analyst", "The new Market Wizards", "How to make money in stocks, William Oneal", "Technical analysis, Kirkpatrick 2nd edition", "Trade like an Oneal Disciple", "The great super cycle", "The disciplined trader, developing winning attitudes". "The definitive guide to point and figure charting"

Ive read a good amount but not enough and now Im purely interested in technical analysis. Are there any books you would consider for advanced technicians? Also right now Im half way through the point and figure book and can already tell I want to further study this charting method. Do you have any recommendations for any books on P+F charting?

Also please write a brief description of the book you post.


SumDude, I was actually thinking about buying a book on counting cards since one dude in the markets wizards book did count cards before he became a trader and he mentions the correlation between the two. But you are already on the investing part of yahoo answers, you dont have any books you would mention on investing, technical analysis preferred?

    You've probably already studied Dow Theory, but that's the basics.

    Elliot Wave Theory is helpful in defining waves of patterns, as long as you don't try to "predict" anything. Especially helpful when you try to program your newly found trading system.

    But Technical Analysis is just a tool, like the computer. It doesn't "predict" anything either. Much of T/A is random noise. Deciphering the significant from the chaff is difficult.

    What most traders are trying to do is become consistent. Even if you're wrong half of the time, keeping your losers small with good money management techniques and letting your winners run can be profitable. Risk is the focus first, but good trading strategy is the aim and application, not some indicator. Incorporated into the indicator and rules are good strategies. Developing a rule-based system for trading

    The number one reason traders fail? No trade plan. Read this book if you want to get serious about trading helps you become consistent.

    Binary options let users trade in currency pairs and stocks for various predetermined time-periods, minimal of which is 30 seconds. Executing trades is straightforward. The system uses user-friendly interfaces, which even an 8 years old kid, can operate without having to read any instructions. But winning trades is Not easy.

    Binary trading is advertised as the only genuine system that lets users earn preposterous amounts of money in ridiculously short period of time. Advertisers try to implicate as if you can make $350 every 60 seconds; if it was true then binary trading would truly be an astonishing business.

    However, does it make any sense? Can every trader make tons of money in binary trading? Who is actually paying all the money or the profit to traders?

    The first challenge is finding a trustworthy binary broker; secondly, you need to find a binary trading strategy, which you can use to make profits consistently. Without an effective trading strategy, there is no way you can make money in this business.

    A lot of interested traders are asking themselves the question if you can really make money with binary options? The answer is that you can indeed make money in binary options trading. Learn here

    Obviously this is a perfectly legitimate question considering that most people have not traded binary options in the past and generally believe that investing is a very difficult activity.

    However, you will have to put an effort into it. You will have to learn money management, reading of charts as well as the usage of indicators.

    If you buy low and sell high, that means someone else has to buy high, and hope someone will buy at an even higher price from him. Sounds like a con to me.
