New Market Timing Techniques : Innovative Studies in Market Rhythm & Price Exhaustion
Thomas R. DeMark / published: July 1997 / Hardcover / 288 pgs.
 
A Reader's Comments: "The dichotomy of reviews -- either love or hate -- this book's contents appears to be a byproduct of the readers' level of market involvement. If one has studied the markets or if one is determined to have a solid foundation in market dynamics, this book is required reading. If one requires spoon feeding and desires to make no attempt to understand market behavior, this book is useless. Making money is difficult for even experienced traders and to acquire even small increments of knowledge is valuable. I learned a lot about markets and trading from this book and with the proper outlook most determined should as well."
