The Master Swing Trader by Alan S. Farley

This product was recommended by Bret A. Hathaway from BretHathaway

This book is great for traders who have some experience with technical analysis. Whereas most books in the category describe how to use technical analysis, this describes the application of technical analysis to trading and how to profit from it. Alan Farley is well known in the trading world, having written in dozens of financial publications and authoring one of the longest running trading courses on the internet. If you are an intermediate trader looking to hone your short term trading skills, this book is for you.


Technical Analysis from A to Z by Steven B Achelis

This product was recommended by Kenny Trinh from Netbooknews

Is one of the good books for understanding technical analysis. This book deals with many indicators, with an explanation. A to Z combines a detailed explanation of what technical analysis is and how it works with overviews, interpretations, calculations, and examples of over 135 technical indicators―and how they perform under actual market conditions. Enhanced with more details to make it easier to use and understand, this book reflects the latest research findings and advances. Becoming a trader using technical analysis understanding is not enough. It requires more experience, otherwise, hard-earned money will be at risk.
