In the late 1980s, John J. Murphy's massive Technical Analysis of the Futures Markets created an uproar when it burst upon the scene. The most comprehensive, yet easy-to-follow guide to the concepts of technical analysis and their applications to the futures markets, it swiftly became a classic-cited in research studies by the Federal Reserve and used as a primary source in the Market Technicians Association testing program. Today, it is widely considered the bible in its field. In response to widespread demand, John Murphy has completely updated and revised this landmark volume, broadened its scope, and expanded it to cover all financial markets. While it retains the clarity, simplicity, and logical structure that made the earlier book so popular, Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets thoroughly covers all the new techniques in charts and charting and the many recent developments in this fast-changing field. Every chapter has been updated. There is new emphasis on the stock market, hundreds of up-to-date illustrations, and three completely new chapters featuring extensive information on: Stock market indicators-advancing versus declining issues, new highs versus new lows, up volume versus down volume, and other tools to gauge market breadth and provide early warning of potential trend changes Candlestick charting-how to best use these fascinating, visually appeal-ing charts that deliver data with such impact it seems to literally jump off the page or computer screen Intermarket analysis-a much-needed clear explanation of the vital interrelationships between the various financial markets In addition, the guide provides extensive new sections covering systems development, advanced technical indicators, and such newer forms of charting as market profiling.

Investing isn't easy. Investing profitably is even harder. As a result, investors are always looking for that `angle', that `edge' that will help them realize more consistent profits. In the past 2 decades, many on Wall Street have come to believe that technical analysis of stock charts is one of those tools. Having worked in the financial services markets since 1987, I do believe that technical analysis can be a helpful tool. And if you are looking for a definitive source of TA, then look no further. Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets by John Murphy covers all the basic aspects of TA: philosophy, chart construction, fundamental vs. technical analysis, trends, major technical pattern recognition, moving averages, oscillators, times cycles, computer trading systems and much more. He also covers different methods of charting, including bar, point and figure and candlestick (be aware that most of the analysis techniques he presents apply to bar charting, not PnF or candlestick). What I like most about the book is that it written clearly, simply and logically. It uses many graphical examples that SHOWS the reader what to look for. It does not rage on about the merits of TA (which many investors feel is complete hooey) but how to apply basic (and sophisticated) TA techniques. I use TA frequently in my business and find that it helps me manage my client's portfolios more effectively, especially when it comes to SELLING a position, whether to lock-in gains or limit losses. If you are a TA convert, or if you have an interest in learning more about it, this book is a useful guide and should be purchased. Today, it remains one of the few investment reference books that I keep in my office.
