Editorial Review - Book Description:
In this revised and expanded second edition of the bestselling Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns, Thomas Bulkowski updates the classic with new performance statistics for both bull and bear markets and 23 new patterns, including a second section devoted to ten event patterns. Bulkowski tells you how to trade the significant events -- such as quarterly earnings announcements, retail sales, stock upgrades and downgrades -- that shape today?s trading and uses statistics to back up his approach. This comprehensive new edition is a must-have reference if you're a technical investor or trader. Place your order today.

"The most complete reference to chart patterns available. It goes where no one has gone before. Bulkowski gives hard data on how good and bad the patterns are. A must-read for anyone that's ever looked at a chart and wondered what was happening."
-- Larry Williams, trader and author of Long-Term Secrets to Short-Term Trading

Most informative review on chart patterns, June 21, 2005 ByVincent F. Simione (Glen Cove, NY USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) I have always wondered - how reliable are chart patterns? Now I know. Tom gives you every statistic necessary to give you the confidence needed to trade these patterns. If you want to know what each pattern should look like, what the average rise or decline is, what the success rate is of each pattern, how to deal with failed patterns and strategies for maximizing profit and minimizing risk - then this 2nd edition is a must. I have been trading for 25 years and this is the first book I have read that gives me the confidence to take action. Bravo Tom. Vince

A New Perspective on Chart Patterns, July 15, 2005 ByGuang Lu (Gaithersburg, MD USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) Many years ago, when I was a college student in China, one of my most enjoyable moments was to sit in library reading Encyclopedia Britannica, which always gave me new perspectives for the world. It was natural that the title of this book attracted my attention and I bought it immediately. What a wonderful reference book to add to my trading library! I only wish I had it before the market crashed in 2000, when I lost all my trading accounts. This reader-friendly book consists of Part One Chart Patterns (53 chapters) and Part Two Event Patterns (10 chapters). Each chapter focuses on a specific chart pattern with informative details. The RESULTS SNAPSHOP and TOUR are very useful to give readers a general idea of each chart pattern. The IDENTIFICATION GUIDELINES and TRADING TACTICS give readers a practical trading guide. The STATISTICS shows the author's new approach to analyze each chart pattern scientifically. The SAMPLE TRADE is a fictitious story to illustrate a trading...

A MUST, August 29, 2006 ByMark Dankowski - See all my reviews This review is from: Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) If I were to be deprived of all the trading books in my collection but one, that would be The Encyclopedia. Unlike other literature on the patterns, in this book you will not find clauses like "most of the time", "usually", "seldom". All the information as it's related to the pattern trading is thoroughly backtested. Few words about the author are due here. I do not believe you will find more ethical individual in the trading community than Mr. Bulkowski is. Unlike others who use their books as an advertising medium to lure you into subscription to their services and seminars, the author simply does not do that. His web site is FREE and he sells nothing but his book. I can't even say that this book is highly recommended or you should buy this book... Nothing like that. I believe you owe yourself having this book on your desk 24/7 if you are to trade chart patterns. If you do not trade chart patterns then... you should not trade at all as all the...
