Trading Classic Chart Patterns by Thomas Bulkowski - The below information (description and table of contents) about this book for traders is not written by and it's recommended you do your own research to determine if this is a book you want to purchase considering there's much more to this book than just statistical research or application of classic chart patterns. In addition, be aware that our WRB Analysis Tutorials do improve the performance of many of the patterns discussed in this book and we have no affiliation with the book author.

Last of all, just be aware that many of the patterns discussed in this book can easily be found amongst free discussions at other websites, forums, blogs, twitter et cetera. Unfortunately, most of the discussions about these patterns are either inaccurate, incomplete, misleading along with falling short of giving an adequate trading plan that's required to apply these patterns profitably. Thus, choose carefully whom you decide to learn or collaborate with about these patterns considering everyone is hiding behind an anonymous user name resulting in no accountability about what they say.

Bulkowski (Keller, TX), an active investor since 1981, is the author of the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns as well as numerous articles for Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities.
