As a graduate student of beginning, intermediate, and advanced statistics in the 1960s, I became quite familiar with rotary calculators. While reading this superb technical trading systems manual by Wilder, I could imagine myself back in the calculator lab sitting in front of a mechanical wonder (a Monroe IQ-213) with a pad of columned paper near at hand. When I learned computer programming in the 1970s, I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly my old paper, pencil, and mechanical tabulations could be converted into software algorithms. Modern programmers of charting software for technical analysis have surely benefited by Wilder's statistical handwork from a bygone but not forgotten era. If I were still active in programming technical analysis systems for today's stock market, Wilder's book would be my mentor. His book will take the reader who loves statistics, as I do, from awareness, to understanding, to mastery as quickly as keyboard skills will permit. Do you want to comprehend what Average True Range, the Relative Strength Index, Directional Movement, Parabolic Stop & Reverse, Pivot Points, and Volatility are really all about? Then read this book. It is foundational. ( )

The book “New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems” will be very helpful for traders who want to create their trading system. Here you can find a lot of information about indicators and indexes: ADX, ADXR, Volatility and Directional Movement System etc. I got good understanding on how to use indicators and what indicator to choose for different situations in the market.

The Author of the book, J.Welles Wilder, even innovates some important indicators, like Average True Range and The Parabolic SAR and he is really a master of technical analysis. In the book I found just specific and particular information without unnecessary details.
