Beyond Technical Analysis: How to Develop and Implement a Winning Trading System, 2nd Edition



A technical analysis classic, newly updated to help traders develop and forward-test a high-performance trading system for today's markets.

A stimulating mix of cutting-edge techniques, timeless principles, and practical guidelines, this updated edition of a technical analysis classic offers traders a comprehensive methodology to develop and implement your own trading system, bridging the gap between analysis and execution.
