Description of Technical Analysis of the Financial MarketsIn the late 1980s John J. Murphy's massive Technical Analysis of the Futures Markets created an uproar when it burst upon the scene. The most comprehensive, yet easy-to-follow guide to the concepts of technical analysis and their applications to the futures markets, it swiftly became a classic - cited in research studies by the Federal Reserve and used as a primary source in the Market Technicians Association testing program. Today, it is widely considered the bible in its field.
In response to its widespread demand, Murphy has completely updated and revised this landmark volume, broadened its scope, and expanded it to cover all financial markets.
While it retains the clarity, simplicity, and logical structure that made the earlier book so popular, Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets thoroughly covers all the new techniques in charts and charting and the many recent developments in this fast-changing field. Every chapter has been updated. There is new emphasis on the stock market, hundreds of up-to-date illustrations, and three completely new chapters featuring extensive information on stock market indicators, Candlestick charting and Intermarket analysis.
An invaluable tool for traders of all levels of experience, Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets guides you from the first application of the Dow Theory and the basics of charting through the latest computer technology and most advanced analysis systems.
