The title Breakthroughs in Technical Analysis: New Thinking from the World’s Top Minds truly captures what we tried to accomplish in bringing the insights of these experts together. The ten contributors are among the leading technical analysts in the world, and they all demonstrate specific techniques they’ve used with great success over time. Some of our contributors present new; techniques that they’ve developed or refined in the last couple years. Others take methodologies that have been used for decades and show how they can be adapted to today’s global financial markets.
All of the authors in this book have developed certain techniques that have helped them to successfully trade and analyze various global markets. This book is designed to bring their ideas together and help von draw on their experiences and incorporate their concepts into your own trading. In planning the book, I realized that although more and more investors had broadened their approach to allow for international markets, the existing technical analysis literature was still quite localized. In meeting with technical analysts and traders from around the world and from organizations such as the Market Technicians Association, I’ve learned that each region has its own experts who have successfully tailored their technical strategies to the local markets.
The goal for the book was to assemble some of the top minds in the field from all parts of the world and have them share their insights into how price and volume analysis can help investors identify profitable trading opportunities. The end result is a powerful illustration of how interrelated the financial markets really are: it’s also a testament to the global reach of technical analysis as a language of the markets.
Each chapter in $reakthroughs in Technical Analysis is intended to stand independently. You can study a single chapter, and then apply those concepts to your own charts and markets before you move on to another. Keep in mind that although the author may be writing about, say, Australian index futures or U.S. Treasury spreads, the concepts discussed can be readily applied to any market, and often on different time periods than those discussed in the chapter.
