Learn about the reclusive, eccentric genius who mastered market timing—and profit from his secrets!
Eight months in advance, one eccentric genius predicted the start of history's greatest bull market–accurate to within 17 days and 7 Dow Jones points. Then, days before his death, he called its end–precisely. Louis Rukeyser called him "uncannily accurate." The Stock Traders Almanac called his work "the finest long-term forecast we have ever seen."
Honored by his peers, admired for his profound knowledge of history and markets, George Lindsay is now nearly forgotten. Much of his most significant research has been relegated to yellowing, typed newsletters. Until now.
In George Lindsay and the Art of Technical Analysis, Ed Carlson demonstrates the immense power of Lindsay's methods in today's markets. Using visual models, Carlson explains Lindsay's models clearly, simply, and intuitively. Using this book, investors and traders can apply these techniques without strong mathematical expertise, and without deciphering Lindsay's dense writing style. Carlson walks through using Lindsay's "Three Peaks and a Domed House" model to uncover surprising patterns in "haphazard" short-lived movements… using Lindsay's "Timing Method for Traders" to identify tradeable market tops and get out of bull markets in time… predicting "decisive, often violent" market movements, and more. This book is an indispensable addition to any technical analysis library–and every technician's trading arsenal.
