Table of Contents

This book will arm you with one simple, vital tool that will enhance your investment success — the price chart.

Despite its enormous, and growing, popularity, technical market analysis still often gets a bad rap. Purveyors of this art have been called tea-leaf readers and many similar names, but that has nothing to do with what technical analysis attempts to do. If we strip away all the fancy indicators and obtuse jargon, what is left are time-tested methods of finding worthwhile investment opportunities and assessing their risk. There is no fortune telling here; only figuring out what to do in the market, the only part of the markets that we can control.

This book offers you the basics needed to look at a chart and get a feel for what the market or individual stock is doing. It covers only the nuts and bolts of chart analysis, briefly touching upon the next level concepts, while leaving the whiz-bang advanced stuff well alone.

This book will add a new dimension to your current methods of stock selection and investment strategies, and help confirm or refute what you may already know. By the end of the book, you may be drawn to further learning and eventually discover that charts can, indeed, be the primary, if not sole, investment decision-making tools.
