thanks for the link to that TA book! been meaning to find something like this for a while
Cool, sure thing man!
That book is brilliant in that it is an academic work in a field in which academics typically frown down upon. It is basically one of the best books in the field. I use it as a desktop reference. Also, it's one of the required readings for the Charted Market Technician exam (a recognized certification in the field). A complete list as well as technical analysis topics can be found here:http://www.mta.org/eweb/DynamicPage.aspx?webcode=cmt-recommended-reading
If you are wanting to be a good trader though, a technical analysis book will only go so far. Studying technical analysis is kind of like studying how to carve. It teaches you the methods and the ways of going about it, but without a system/strategy/plan, it's just an academic exercise.
If you want to be a good trader, I suggest reading the following books, each of which is written by a successful trader:High Probability Trading
