Format: Paperback
Out of the dozens of books I've read revolving around technical analysis this is still the one I recommend to people who show an interest in learning TA. I first read this book in 1989 and it's still as valid today as it was then.
Weinstein writes in a very accessible style. And he includes just the topics that are necessary to be successful with TA. No complex techniques that may or may not add anything to your trading results. Just the solid and steady core techniques that will let you pick out profits from the trend. Any techniques I've adopted since 1989 have just been additions to what I learned in this book, not replacements.
This book is more for the position trader than the swing trader. It's all about riding Stage 1 (stock going up) and Stage 4 (shorting or avoiding stock going down). If you've read Nicholas Darvas' How I Made $2,000,000 In The Stock Market you'll notice that Darvas basically stumbled on some of the core principles that Weinstein describes.
This book really doesn't have any secrets. It's just that Weinstein kind of follows the 80/20 rule. 20% of TA techniques give you 80% of the profit. Most other books confuse people by jamming in the other 80% that only gives you 20% extra and losing the core principles in the process. With Weistein the core principles stick out like a sore thumb.

"The Tape Tells All" The Professional Tape Reader published by Stain Weinstein (the author of this book) As the title of Weinstein's suggests he analyzes stocks via technical analysis.
I believe this book and CAN SLIM can work together or you can use them separately. In fact I was surprised at the number of things that were similar in Secrets for Profiting... compared to How to make money in stocks. Things such as "Buy high, sell higher," ignoring P/E ratios, Relative strength, cutting losses etc... it was a very good book to confirm that the CAN SLIM methodology works.
There was one glaring difference between CAN SLIM and Weinstein's methods. Weinstein doesn't care if a stock is making money or not, in fact he just buys and sells based on the technical analysis of stock charts.
This book is full of quizzes charts, practical examples and easy to read definitions. And I believe this is a great addition to our bookshelves. I know it is a book I will refer back to.

While this book is well-written, the fact that the author's much-ballyhooed newlsetter, "The Professional Tape Reader," consistently is graded as one of the worst stock newsletters for bull market investing, is disappointing. A quick search of the Internet will confirm this for you; it is worth noting that the newsletter gets much higher marks for bear markets.

What is kinda unique and special about this trading book is how it makes you feel it addresses the whole ball of wax and yet does not shy away from given very particular recommendations. I mean, you can tell the author is very knowledgeable so you can rely more on him than the average stock apostle, and at the same time, he has boiled it down to clear quantitative trading rules. I like that courage. Many authors are either very narrow and passionate (and wrong!) or so wide and general as to be useless. Come to think of it, if you were allowed only one trading book to read in a lifetime, this one would probably be the right choice. What a service to the reader. Thank you Stan.

my dad gave me this book as a birthday present years ago. it's the best present i could ever get. it has helped my dad make some money and I am following the step in the book to become a successful trader. so far, i have been successful. This book doesn't have too much theory [garbage]. it only has a simple model and handful of rules. and the most important thing is his model makes sense. it's all about people's psychology, which is displayed in stock charts. yeah, so give it a try.

Have about ten books on trading / investing,
If I had to throw nine of them away and keep one, I would keep this one. Well written by a great Author
and still ranks 5 stars almost everytime someone reads
it and takes time to review it.
The book expains the stages of all markets, support
and resistance, importance of volume and much, much more.
Very inexpensive and packed with knowledge.

Everything has its time. This book came along just when I needed a boost in my understanding of charting. Although it was written in 1988 my thinking was elsewhere then and I really didn't have the time to try and understand charting. It would have been most helpful then as I made a number of mistakes that could have been avoided with the use of charts, but that is life. If you are reading this review you are thinking of beginning, or adding to, your knowledge of charting then this book is perfect for you.
The book won't tell you about all the indicators that are out there but it will provide insight into the critical few that you will need. If the review system had a sixth star then I would give it willingly. Buy it new or buy it used but make sure you add it to your library. The charts are from 1988 but don't let that put you off. It is the content that you are learning from not how pretty the package is.
Napoleon Hill wrote a tremendous book entitled Think and Grow Rich. The focus being having a goal, taking that first step and then building on your learnings to become wealthy in different ways. The key is to start thinking. Mr. Weinstein's book will provide that key. Enjoy this book's gift.
