5.0 out of 5 stars A great guide book for swing traders. Belongs to the "Classics" category in time to come.
Reviewed in the United States on 13 May 2018
This is a truly good book. If you are an experienced trader, you will be able to understand the many great wisdoms in this book. I read this like a textbook and have many of the pages highlighted.

If I have to list any misgivings for this book, I will point to chapter 3 where Adam talks about Elliott waves but the figures following (Figure 3.1 and 3.1) incorrectly drew the impulses as 3 waves when the correct structure should be 5 waves. This should be corrected in future editions of this book.

The second misgiving will be more of picking bones out of eggs: the last chapter on MACD has a few charts that can be a few pages away. This is just an organizational issue and poses mild inconvenience when trying to refer the chart to the text. The chapter itself is great though and helps me correct a grave misunderstanding of MACD: regarding the fast line being a 2nd derivative of momentum.

Like I said, if you have been in the markets for at least a few years, you will see the many nuggets of wisdom scattered throughout the pages. For an amateur, this book will probably seems to lack "value" as it doesn't seem to contain as many topics on technical analysis compared to other TA books. Thus, this book is really more of a guide that specialised in guiding you through a few very focused methodology of trading (really more for swing trading) as opposed to a reference book on TA where you can find formulas for different indicators.

In conclusion, I would say these:
1) This book is more geared towards swing trading and it does so brilliantly.
2) While it is a simple book with many great trading wisdoms, it is not really for beginners if only because a new trader will not be able to harvest them as an experienced trader would (sorry about this). I will only recommend this book for anyone who have at least 5 years of trading experience in order to really appreciate it.
3) Take note that there is a mistake regarding Elliott waves as mentioned above.

I have never writtened such a long review for a book but this book is worth every moment writing a comprehensive review for. This is certainly a book that belongs in the "Classics" category in time to come.
