Robert Edwards' book seem to fit well for the job, as it's technical analysis targeted at long-term equity investing, which is as close to what I do everyday as the subject can be. Guess what: despite the naive and non-sense criticism of fundamental analysis that the author lays out in the beginning of the book, I actually found some chapters enjoyable.

This is a reprint of the EXCELLENT 1958 edition. The writing style is magnificent. It looks wordy, but it's actually fun to read, easy to understand, and incredibly interesting. I've tried reading later editions from the library, but they had been "modernized" by the editor to the point that they had become directionless and overly wordy. This edition is strictly on chart patterns. No EMA, Stochastic oscillators, etc. If those are what you want to study, then see stockcharts.com. John Murphy's *Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets* is also an excellent book. His chapters on chart patterns are more modern and direct, and he includes some of the more mathematical indicators you can find at stockcharts.com, at least superficially, but Edwards and Magee [unmodified] is still the best and most readable book on chart patterns, in my opinion.

The best purchase I have made so far in the world of technical analysis. The content may be old, but is still relevant if you want to learn the basics of price action trading. Not a lot of fluff, just the kind of details on topics that most of us are already familiar with such as resistance, head-and -shoulder, etc... That will add value to your knowledge and give you an edge when trading these patterns. I will use this book as my main reference in the future. The book that I'm talking about here is the 5th edition.

Book arrived on time and in good condition. This is Fourth edition, published in 1957, not to be confused with the current edition, which sells for about $90.00. This one will do for the price difference. Quality is very good and will do unless one needs the more recent edition.

It’s not life changing since it’s so old but if you wanted to see the roots of many TA ideas, it’s right here. I think it’s less of a trading book and more of a history book at this stage. Would I recommend it? Only if you are trying to fill in some context issues in your technical analysis.

This is a review of the 9th edition. Please note that amazon has included this review for other editions as well. That is okay because I have something to say about them too, but you should be aware. The really old editions are probably out of copyright.

I would not recommend this book unless you are into the "history of technical analysis". The focus of the book is classical patterns of bar charts. The book is absolutely not bad, but it's value is a bit dubious. Why read a book that have charts that are 1/2 century old? You can't be sure that things haven't changed, can you? So the newer editions also have more modern charts. However, this combination of old and new makes for a frustrating reading. Actually I would think most book deteriorate in quality after their 3rd edition.

If you want a classic in your bookself I would really recommend you to buy a second-hand copy of the last edition written by Edwards & Magee alone. This would be the 5th edition. It has a very professional binding and clear white pages. The new edition is a very ugly and cheaply bound hardcover. This comment is only if you are into good looking books. You get the 5th edition for $5 at amazon, so it is a nobrainer!

Addition in 2010: Edwards and Magee wrote a classic that has many editions. I bought one copy around 1984 and it was the first book in technical analysis that I read. I liked it a lot. With time other books have been written, but I still like this old book. Now mainly because it is a very pretty book. Expensive paper and a proper spine that will never break. It feels nice to touch. I value nice books if their content is classic. I bought the 9th edition just out of curiosity and I am displeased by it. There is a running commentary in sections by a new third author - the original authors long dead. The commentary is ridiculous. At one point he decides to call an upside down head-and-shoulder pattern for a kilroy patterns. Hello? We don't need comments on this level. The paper and binding is ugly (but not as bad as books from Wiley Finance - please use better paper in your expensive books!). So on all accounts a ** book. If you love books, go to abebooks and try to find an old beautiful copy instead, but they are no longer $5!

4 stars for the volume of thoroughly well researched examples and exhaustive coverage of basic patterns.
This book is comprehensive but not complete. There is no information on some modern indicators or, for example, candlesticks or point and figure.
I have the 8th edition.
This book is good to have and I did learn valuable things from it but if you are only going to buy a few books, I would not recommend this as one of them.
On the plus side, there are many many actual stock chart examples. That adds to the length in a good way.
Writing style is very much early 20th century; leisurely rather than short and to the point.
This book is geared toward stocks and commodities but not forex. (although the stock patterns also apply to forex)

My main reference used to be John Murphy's and Martin Pring's. This will be added in the lineup.
