A Cornucopia for the Serious Trader
If longevity is a key to greatness, Gerald Appel has achieved it. When I got into the business in the mid-seventies, he was an admired technical analyst. His publication, Systems and Forecast, was required reading. The inventor of MACD, he has lived to see his technique used by virtually every serious investor and trader; it is included in most trading programs.

With Technical Analysis, this accomplished technician and money manager, offers a complete course in forecasting future market behaving using cyclical, trend, momentum and volume signals.

His techniques are suitable for investors of all suits – be they short-, intermediate- or long-term. Even mutual fund investors will benefit.

It is rare that a successful money manager of Appel’s stature shares his secrets with the public. If you are a serious investor or trader, you can only benefit from time spent with this master and his ideas. ( )
