`Jack Schwager`s Technical Analysis is exactly what one should expect from this expert on futures. The book is comprehensive, thoroughly insightful, and highly educational. I recommend it to the beginner as well as the expert.` - Leo Melamed Chairman, Sakura Dellsher, Inc.

`Jack Schwager possesses a remarkable ability to extract the important elements of complex, market-timing approaches, and distill that into something intelligible and useful. Not only is he able to present these ideas cleverly in an easily understood format, but he also demonstrates their application to the markets with clarity and precision.` - Thomas R. DeMark Author, The New Science of Technical Analysis

`Jack Schwager`s book, A Complete Guide to the Futures Markets, was one of the best books I have read on futures trading. We give a copy of it to all our new analysts. Jack`s latest work, Technical Analysis, looks like a gold mine of information, adding significantly to the existing investment literature.` - Monroe Trout President, Trout Trading Management Co.

Excellent 1st book for learning techical analysis, July 26, 1996 By A Customer This review is from: Schwager on Futures: Technical Analysis (Hardcover) This book covers all the basic topics for techical analysis for futures including oscillators, basic terminology, trend analysis, Japanese candlesticks, etc. The best part of the book is a large section that has real world trading examples: a graph showing a market, Schwager's trendlines on the graph, and reasons to enter the trade. You decide if you agree and then turn the page to see if you made or lost money. This is very useful way to see if you paid attention to the explanatory parts of the book. Overall it is easy to read and well worth it if you are interested in trading futures

There is a Cheaper Version of This Book, May 30, 2002 By A Customer Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Schwager on Futures: Technical Analysis (Hardcover) I first read his book in paperback "Getting Started in Tech Analysis." Both books cover the same info, except the above reviewed book has more details on trading systems and has a lot more graphs and examples, which I felt I did not need. I would recommend the less costly paperback version - it is EXCELLENT!
