Martin Pring on Market Momentum
By Martin J. Pring. Retail Price: US$29.95. Our Price: US$23.96 (Save 20%). Pages: 368. Binding: Paperback. Publication Date: 03/97. Publisher: Irwin Professional Publishing: ISBN: 0786311762.

The author, 06/19/98: All you ever wanted to know about momentum in one source. I wrote Market Momentum because momentum is a very widely used tool by traders and investors but there has never been a book that explores the concept in depth. Typically, momentum is relegated to a single chapter in general introductory works. It's also a misunderstood term. Some charting packages feature "momentum" as an actual indicator, but "momentum" is a generic term that embraces all oscillators. The first two chapters of this 368-page book discuss the principles of momentum interpretation as it applies to all momentum indicators on one way or another. Subsequent chapters deal with individual indicators including, rate of change, RSI, Stochastics, Directional Movement, MACD, the Commodity Selection Index, Parabolic System, Trix, Herrick Payoff, Accumulation Swing, and the Commodity Channel Index. A complete chapter is also devoted to my own KST system, volume oscillators and oscillators used to analyze stock markets. Market Momentum should appeal to you if you already have a grounding in technical analysis and want to use oscillators in a practical way. It's not geared to the mathematically oriented because I've tried to keep the formulae to a minimum.You'll find it useful though, if you have a special appeal for charting software and have often wondered how to use some of the more exotic indicators packaged with their program.
