FAQ

  • How was this list of best technical analysis books created?

    We searched for "best Technical Analysis books", found the top 5 articles, took every book mentioned in 2+ articles (to ensure it's at least good), and averaged their rankings (which is a better/ more objective way than picking a book because of an Amazon review).

  • What's the best/ top technical analysis book?

    According to our research (which we summarized above) the #1 technical analysis book is "Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets" by John J. Murphy.

  • What books should I read for technical analysis?

    We recommend "Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets" by John J. Murphy, "Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques" by Steve Nison, and "Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns" by Thomas N. Bulkowski. These are the 3 highest books on our list therefore we blieve the best choices to learn and read technical analysis (and of course, hopefully you buy via clicking on our Amazon link!)

  • Does Warren Buffett use technical analysis?

    Nope, not his style of investing. In fact he said it himself "I realized that technical analysis didn't work when I turned the chart upside down and didn't get a different answer."

  • Why isn't there a shopping cart where I can buy these?

    Our number one rule is "don't try to out-Amazon Amazon." Which is why we don't have features anyone can get there like price, whether a book's available or in stock, customer support for returns, any review, buy options, published date, and other concepts of course etc... But we do link to Amazon where you can find all that and buy the book :) While we stick to what we're good at and only work on that (i.e. building software where we can showcase these lists). So working WITH Amazon is a technique that supports our work in a huge way! And we believe you get a much better, cleaner experience.
