    Hi,

    Does any one have a small primer (Preferabley with in 20 to 30 pages) which explains the basics of Technical analysis?. I read thru some of the threads in this forum, but not able to make much out of it as I do not know the basics.

    Can some one help?.

    Thanks,
    Balaji.

    This link quotes Edwards & Magee's classic book on TA 'Technical Analysis of stock trends' ... which is widely considered a masterpiece.

    I strongly suggest readers go thru the first chapter on Bull and bear markets , which also explains differenes between primary, secondary and minor trends. Folks seriously interested in TA should master these (big picture) basics before delving into support / resistance and other concepts
