"Great research, great organization, and a wealth of information. Not only does Tom identify the best formations, he shows the practical way to trade each one. And, he puts the best results right in front, rather than playing hide-and-seek with the reader. You don't need to be a chartist to get value from this book. I highly recommend it."
—Perry Kaufman, author of New Trading Systems and Methods, Fourth Edition

"Man cannot live on bread alone, and according to Tom Bulkowski's research, one cannot trade by candlesticks alone. Tom's intensive statistical work seeks out the truth in the frequency and reliability of trading with candlestick charts. His exhaustive and thorough research will give the reader an eye opener to help guide them in their trading decisions. This is a must-read edition of a high-caliber piece of trading literature for every trader who uses candlecharts."
—John Person, author of Candlestick and Pivot Point Trading Triggers and President of

"When I wrote the Third Edition of Candlestick Charting Explained, I believed I had thoroughly covered every aspect of this respectable analysis technique.

The Encyclopedia of Candlestick Charts is a reference that every technical analyst will want to own."
—Gregory L. Morris, Senior Portfolio Manager, PMFM, Inc., and author of Candlestick Charting Explained, Third Edition and The Complete Guide to Market Breadth Indicators
