This is the best book on technical analysis available!
If you are a day or swing trader, this book is a must read. Brian Shannon (Not 'brain' Shannon as incorrectly listed under the picture of the book's cover...Although he is very sharp!) explains very clearly how to use trendlines for entries with the smallest downside. If you are new to trading, this book will be hard to digest, but will be a reference that you will go back to time and again. Shannon covers matters that you will find nowhere else, such as VWAP and 'price by volume', both of which allude to price support. I am now on my 3rd reading of this book. Excellent and highly recommended.

Great For Learning Technical Analysis
See my review I posted on my blog a few months back:

http://www.timothysykes.com/2008/06/book-review-either-read-technical-analysis-using-multiple-timeframes-by-brian-shannon-or-lose-money-trading/

The vast majority of finance books written in the last decade are complete and utter shit. (I know this, you know this, hell, even our joke of an industry itself knows this, but nothing’s changin’ anytime soon cuz shitty books still make money due to the financial miseducation of the general public aka Watch TV and you won’t get rich, you’re just gonna get fat…or fatter!) Because they are written by marketers, fee-earners aka scum suckers, frauds, talking heads and sugarcoated / generalized to the point where we find our once great profession near-dead last in understandability/openness/excitement and widespread profitability.

Given these dark times, there are only a few wise choices—my book An American Hedge Fund (total openness/understandability) a few others, none of which come to mind right away, and these lists (HERE and HERE) of my 20 favorite finance/business books.

So you can imagine my surprise/delight when I discovered Brian Shannon’s (Alphatrends.net) debut book Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes to be the single most accurate/honest/understandable book on charting since Steve Nison’s classic: Japanese Candlestick Charts.

That’s right, I want you to pick up a copy right the hell now and read in awe as Shannon explains how it’s not just about memorizing chart patterns—anybody who tells you that is a typically useless finance freak—it’s infintely more important to understand how variables, players and emotions align to create shockingly similar, repetitive, and, more importantly, predictable chart patterns.



Students of my Pennystocking DVD know this concept to be the main point around which I base my trading and what I go to great lengths to explain—at times better than others—Shannon pulls it off rather succinctly and effortlessly...and then picking them apart, one variable at a time so the reader gets a total education in the differences between all the patterns.

More importantly, Shannon delves into the steps necessary to make sure you stay disciplined—whether that means cutting losses quickly, using stop losses, waiting for pattern confirmation etc.—and that’s the kind of stuff at which most traders—me included—suck aka it’s crucial to learn this stuff if you hope to be a successful trader.

God friggin love Shannon for putting together this 184 page MUST READ, being an infinitely better trader than me as his focus is not these little 5-20% gains (yeah TIMalert subscribers today on CNEH, detailed post coming tomorrow, whaaaaaat!), wanting and teaching others to want larger, longer-term gains on larger/more liquid names than PennyStocking. If he made a DVD of his strategies, it’d probly be called StockCharting because at that he is a master teacher.

So, you poor people, continue learning PennyStocking and expand your horizons with Shannon’s awesome charting book. Hell, it might even teach you a thing or two about PennyStocking itself as there are a great any overlaps. You middle-class people: learn it all, you’ve got the money and opportunity to really get ahead and make your non-trading friends look like dumbasses. And you rich people—understand technical analysis is not some crazy science, it’s life…cuz it’s based in human psychology and more importantly, and, more importantly, stop being so goddamn stuck up–money doesn’t make you any better, in most cases, it makes you far worse!

In short, you need to read this book (click HERE to see the entire website dedicated to it) , if you don’t, you’re just ignoring a greatly useful resource and that’s not cool.

Great TA book
Brian Shannon's book is great with many illustrations that highlights his strategies and form of TA well. It was kind of pricy but I would argue it is worth it to learn the essence of trend. I wish it was a little more in depth but the bonus stuff on his old blog also augmented it well.

Expensive and pretty basic
This is a decent book for beginners, but didn't really go into as much detail as I'd like about his strategy. Spent too much time on the basics. Very expensive and not near the quality of other TA books that were $25 or less.

Great TA book
I bought this book about 4 months ago, it is very good, though not cheap thus the lower scores for value. However, despite all this I still give it 5 stars because it is an amazing book.

Shannon does the best job I have seen of translating technical principles into the psychology of the market participants that cause it to be of value in the first place. The book mainly teaches you how to identify trends, identify entry and exit areas by using multiple timeframes, and use risk management principles to manage the trade.

Another thing I liked is that the illustrations in this book are in color. Thus, you can more easily get the information contained in the candlestick charts, and get a better sense of the moving averages shown as they were always colored the same way throughout the book. This is a minor point to most perhaps but for me it made me buy the book since I knew that color pagers were costing them more to print than just black and white. The wide margins and quality paper also got filled up in the copy I bought with copious notes and realizations I had while reading the book.

Most thorough TA book out there period
If I could only read one book on technical analysis this would be it. Brian Shannon goes in depth on using technical analysis as well as the psychology of the markets. It is simple and easy to understand with very clear charts.

Worth the Premium Paid
If you want to be a successful trader, you must know technical analysis and understand what makes chart patterns evolve. This book gives you an understanding of the price movement of a chart that can be used to anticipate future moves. It also covers trends, volume, support and resistance using multiple time frames. One of the better part of this book is about risk management. It tells you how to evaluate risk vs. reward, ideal entry and exit points, when to take profits or cut loses, and position sizing. The book contains valuable information that every trader should know. It might be expensive for a book but the information in it demands a premium.

Easy to understand
This is a nice book on technical analysis. It teaches you how to look at multiple time frames, get all views macro to micro and make your decision. Nice chart examples in the book. The book is an odd size. Somewhat difficult to carry with you while traveling.
