There is an endless literature on technical analysis and I do not even intend to write a complete list. I start with two of my favourite trading books, John Bollinger’s book where he explains his Bollinger Bands in detail, and then Price Headley’s book. Both have a related website, and Brian Shannen has also written som interesting books and have a related website,

William J O’Neil is one of the most influential traders of the 20th century.  His book “How to Make Money in Stocks” that was first published in 1988 is often cited. He invented the CANSLIM Investing Methodology. Unfourtunately I have not read his books. His risk management system is well known and he writes about it in his books. What is CANSLIM? According to Investopedia “it is a system for selecting growth stocks by using a combination of fundamental and technical analysis techniques”.

Here are the books with some others explaining not so well known indicators.
