I'm in the process of reading Dr. Elder's new book, "Come Into My Trading Room." I'm taking notes so I can compile a sort of "CliffNotes" version of it. Seems like most books are largely filler anyhow. Prices are ridiculous on some books today. Dr. Elder's first book "Trading for a Living" retails at $70.00 bucks! WTF? I like extracting the meat. When I'm done I'll make a PDF and upload it to my YahooGroup. Anyone with similar documentation, software, or files to share please feel free to join the group and do so. Lets pool our resources.

Ditto what TRO management is the key.


As for TA books I've never really read one that was a keeper. Martin Prings TECHNICAL ANALYSIS EXPLAINED would give you a foundation.

Thanks for the interesting link.
They even noted what we talked about a few years ago,how the pullback bounces tend to occur more often on Fib number days,they say:

"Having looked at thousands of charts over the years, I will tell you that the most frequent pullback in uptrends are 3, 5, 8 and 13, which are Fibonacci numbers."

Another real good site that talks about trading pullbacks into the SMA10/EMA30 zone:

If you're just looking to learn the basics, then there's no reason to waste money on a book. All the info you need can be found for free on the net. is a good example of a free TA site. If you're looking for advanced studies, then I'd look for books on statistics and putting together trading systems.

"It's only when the tide goes out that you learn who's been swimming naked." ―Warren Buffett

Just don't expect to get rich overnight after reading one or two of those books or the various mentioned websites for that matter.
