Jacket Description:
The book is organized in such a way that an amateur investor can quickly read a chapter discussing how a trading system works and immediately calculate each value necessary to make the system work. The reader is taken step-by-step through each calculation so that even the most non-mathematical investor can repeat the process to determine the necessary information to make the system operative.

For the beginning student of technical analysis there is an extensive presentation of work sheets for every system which shows precise what data to collect and how to organize it in such a way that it is easy to calculate and meaningful to use. Very few books on the stock and commodities markets today have gone into such detail on how to determine specific buying and selling points for investing in stocks and commodities.

This book is written for the average investor who doesn't have a computer available to crunch huge amounts of data in order to printout stacks of paper with Betas, Alphas, etc. It is a book that gives a detailed description of do-it-yourself trading systems that can be applied with no more than an adding machine and slide rule or a ten-dollar pocket calculator. It's a How-To-Do book.

As you know, Dunn & Hargitt assembled the first complete Computer Database on commodity futures markets, we then tested all the available trading systems published in the literature using the computer at Purdue University. Because I have been researching technical trading systems on stocks and commodities for the past 20 years, and at one time or another I have tested almost all the concepts and systems described in this book (other than the author's original ideas), I can assure you that your book is packed with extremely profitable information.

To carry out our own research on trading systems, we had to dig out the specifics of each trading system from numerous books and now offer it all condensed into one convenient volume. From my many years of research on trading systems I have become familiar with most of the systems and techniques that have been published or have been used by market technicians both in commodities and stocks. Nevertheless, I have never seen a book that has compiled the basic formulae and calculation sheets necessary to do a large variety of technical analyses in a single, condensed publication. Therefore, I believe that every serious stock market investor has a need for your book.

Since 1962 1 have been writing a weekly stock market advisory letter which has used certain of the formulae you describe in your book. Therefore, I can testify to the profitable weekly application of these systems over nearly 20 years of calling market trends. The Moving Average Trend following system we have employed in our advisory newsletter has called every significant market cycle since we started publication in March 1962. Few investment advisors can make and substantiate that claim which comes as a result of following trading systems like the ones you describe in your book.

Technical Trading Systems for Commodities and Stocks answers an important need for the formulae and specific buy/sell rules for various trading systems or methods in one easy-to-read reference volume. I have been reading the literature on the stock market and commodity futures markets for nearby 25 years. My experience tells me your book will be a great time-saver for the average investor who wants to understand technical analysis. Because of the wealth of information contained in the book it could sell for many times what you are asking and still be a bargain.

This book is must reading for every serious investor.
