    I remember back in 2004 when I was just a teenager someone recommended this book to me in an online forum and I bought it and read it so many times and absolutely fell in love with this business and today this is my job so I think this book changed the course of my life. I read so many books in the past decade and tried so many methods and even created so many Trading strategies for myself,in fact it make me feel exhausted even thinking about it but it was all started with this book.

Today when I sit behind the monitor every morning I don't use and need much more than what Mr. John J. Murphy wrote in this book.I read this book so many times but I didn't understand things wrote in it like I should. Now I ask this question every time I saw a book that I read before,"Did I read that book the way it deserved? and was there any things I could understand that I didn't?". Mr. C.S. Lewis once said “Clearly one must read every good book at least once every ten years.”

    This book is complete, but most of the strategies don't work in real life when trading expenses and slipage are taken into account and certainly not in a taxable account.

    This is a very good overview of basic technical analysis. It's 15 years old so some of the computer stuff is out of date but the analysis part is fairly timeless. Murphy is, remarkably for the subject, not too dry and does a good job of explaining things. Where the book falls short (and where most books like this do in my opinion, is that it cherry picks its examples and doesn't show much of the cases where the analysis fails or where it can be misapplied. Even so, worth reading.

    A classic of Technical Analysis. The basic concepts are timeless, so if you want to learn the basics of TA, this book will help you get some general knowdlege of the subject. Some indicator/oscilators proposed,money management and actual trading tips are sometimes outdated, but you can get the general concept here and start working your way up. A great rookie book, with all the basics you need to cover. Mind you, this book should be only used as an introduction to TA and trading, and you should by A classic of Technical Analysis.

    This is a solid introduction to technical analysis. Jack Schwager and Martin Pring have written good basic TA books that I have also read. The grandfather of all is Edwards and Magee, a new edition of which has been edited by WHC Bassetti. Edwards and Magee should be read in addition to one of the three authors above -- OR -- a more recent book (that I haven't read) by the notable duo, Kirkpatrick & Dahlquist.

    After reading it I finally understand why it's called the bible for Technical Analysis. Will definitely be getting a hard copy for future reference. I was smiling to myself while reading chapter 15 - Computers and Trading systems; its a keyhole into the past and also a reminder on how far technology has come.

    I came across this book while searching for some good content on Technical Analysis of Stock Markets and during my hunt Murphy's book was omnipresent. I shall say the book is a good introductory material but that's what it is, at best, an introduction. It isn't much of a guide nor it is very comprehensive in the sense. The book is more of an academic standard than practical purpose. Mr. Murphy at times go on elaborating certain aspects which aren't much of a show and in particular the volume I came across this book while searching for some good content on Technical Analysis of Stock Markets and during my hunt Murphy's book was omnipresent.

The book is more of an academic standard than practical purpose. Mr. Murphy at times go on elaborating certain aspects which aren't much of a show and in particular the volume interpretation of his is a bit irking. After a while the content will sound repetitive, the author has conveniently picked up some of the key indicators and he keeps on explaining them now and then, each page in the second half looks like an old wine in a new bottle. But what really disappointed me such a disrespect being done by Mr. Murphy to the candlesticks patterns. Again owing to his comfort zone he put together a list of pictures of different patterns without even bothering to explain a little about the underlying market dynamics. The book is a good introduction for anyone who is a newbie and has no idea whatsoever Technical Analysis is but for anyone who wants to go a little deeper, this book will be an utter disappointment.

    This book is a gargatuan aggregation of technical analysis concepts covering stock, commodities etc . The market is tanking as I am writing this review but hei, it is never too early or late to learn something. Much to be learned though.

    A great introduction to Technical Analysis (TA). It reads like a text book explaining everything there is to learn about TA. It provides all the nuts and bolts on which we can build upon. Everything that I learnt may not be useful but TA gives me a new angle to view the markets.

    It reads like an academic textbook, but if you're serious about understanding the theory of technical analysis - charts, trends, indexes, oscillators, and even basics of money management - then this is an absolute must read. Technical vs Fundamental analysis is a hotly debated subject, but technicians believe that trend already reflect the underlying factors and usually, no one can figure out all the reasons why something happened, and by the time they do, its impossible to ride the wave.

So reading charts is where the money is at 😂 I don't have very strong feelings on technical vs fundamental approaches to studying the market, and have my own personal middle ground, but I have very strong feelings about not getting mixed up in the stocks without research, education, and a system. I started with stock tips and my instincts at 18, and sure I made profits even during the recession, but it's like playing with fire and I know a lot of people who didn't have my luck and were badly burned. So read this book, it won't teach you everything but it's a great introduction to the tools of technical analysis.

    Lot of technical analysis knowledge for both stock market & futures packed in. Very elaborate explanation about most concepts (well, more than required), but some important ones or at least concepts which I expected I would study about in depth, for ex., Bollinger Bands, RSI, Stochastic, etc. are really pretty brief. Overall, yeah, you'll be more knowledgeable than when you started this book. Decent read and delivers its promise of exposing us to different technical tools - not all or modern Lot of technical analysis knowledge for both stock market & futures packed in.

    Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets is a decent primer on technical analysis. Most can expect to learn the value of support/resistance lines, volume, and indicators. Some of the concepts and strategies are out of date (especially the section on indicators) but his discussion on support/resistance lines continues to be relevant and useful in the real markets.

    I finally had time to make for what is seen by many as the holy book of technical analysis. Although being decades old, the techniques discussed within are timeless. Whether you're trading stocks, futures or cryptocurrency, the human psychology that drives the markets is always the same. The book will arm you with a very wide arsenal of tools and indicators that you can use to buff up your trading instincts.

    Comprehensive but not convincing The book goes very deep in many theories and seems to introduce most concepts. I am however not convinced about the merits. It seems to explain a lot after the fact, but there are arguments for more or less any development in the future, no matter where we stand today. I'm missing more data to back up the validity of the claims. If these patterns are more right than wrong, it should be simple to pull some statistics on this.

    If you don't know anything about Technical Analysis, this is your book. It starts from level 0, like how was TA invented, what are the main philosophies, what is support, what is resistance, etc. it covers pretty much everything I recommend renting/buying the book, because its a textbook once you have the knowledge you probably won't reread it.

    Good concise introduction to technical analysis. Teaches and explains the fundamentals well, however it becomes a bit vague towards the end (as a few of the later topics would require whole books to fully explain). All in all, it does well to introduce the reader to the basics as well as opening up further learning to the reader desires it. An extremely solid introduction book.

    Excellently written. An absolutely must read for anybody having any degree of interest in the financial markets. Seemingly complicated techniques and concepts are presented in a very clear and easy to understand method. The book is a shinning example of how to present concepts to the readers. Highly recommended.

    This is the technical analysts bible. It has absolutely everything a technical trader needs. It is more of an academic book that you would study and refer to when needed rather than read cover to cover. However, I read it through and can say it is the best guide to technical analysis that I have ever read. This is one for your personal library trding library.

    This book is like an encyclopedia of technical analysis. Very thorough description of major theories, chart patterns, price action etc. Could be very useful for the traders. Could be used as a reference book later on for chart patterns.
