Nicolas Darvas Not Mentioned Once
Chapter 8 is titled "Whoever Made Money From Charting?" and lists six chartists with varied levels of success and failure. The "Further Reading" section of the book lists books important to chartists and charting, and some technical analysis classics. But the author fails to mention Nicolas Darvas anywhere in his book. He is probably the most famous person to use technical combined with fundamental analysis to go from a bankroll of $3,000 to over $2 million in 18 months. His subsequent book detailing his trades and life story titled "How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market" became a trading classic. His "Darvas Box Theory" for trading is still in use today, and I feel this should have at least been examined and given fair testing as was the case with other technical indicators. I don't like to think that this omission was due to Alistair Blair's cynicism for chartists, but perhaps subsequent editions of the book will examine it.
