Excellent introduction to technical analysis, March 15, 2012 ByScrapple8 (Brooklyn, NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: Technical Analysis For Dummies (Paperback) Technical Analysis has no place in fundamentally analyzing the value of a security, yet it is a valuable tool for traders because it captures market behavior in three ways: trends, momentum, and crowd sentiment. "Technical Analysis for Dummies" breaks down these tools into something you can actually use to make money trading securities. Not long ago, I attended a presentation by the Pro Market Advisors, who gave a ninety minute presentation on technical analysis. They tossed around a lot of jargon, such as dojis, hanging men, hammers, and bearish engulfing candlesticks. None of it made any sense to me then, but after reading Chapter Eight, on Japanese Candlesticks, I wondered how I was ever confused. They are just indicators of trends, and you'll learn a few more on your own from reading the book, such as harami, shooting stars, and rising windows. "It's endlessly fascinating, even addictive" once you understand the concepts - and this book helps you do that...

Great for starters, April 4, 2011 ByRicardo Rodriguez (Madrid, Spain) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Technical Analysis For Dummies (Paperback) I bought this book to quickly get me started on technical analysis. Now I use other more sophisticated books (John J. Murphy's Technical Analysis) for further enhancing my technical analysis skills. I still use it for a quick reference, specially the kindle version.

very solid read and introduction, August 22, 2011 Bylewis f talbot - See all my reviews This review is from: Technical Analysis For Dummies (Paperback) Like most for dummies books I think it does a great job in introducing you to the topic and leading you onto more advance resources. I don't think this book is enough to start trading in the worlds financial markets but I do believe its a key stepping stone to being able to do so. I think that unlike some of the other for dummies books I have read I think that all the information in this book has a use.
