Years ago when I was studying for the Market Technician Association’s Chartered Market Technician exam, we used to have to read books. Yes, real books with spines, and pages and everything. These pages were filled with charts, graphs and methods of other people who practiced the so called Voo-Doo Science we call Technical Analysis. As I became indoctrinated into their way of life, I knew that there was no other way to approach markets. It’s because of technical analysis that my focus bent towards volatility and trading volatility derivatives. So let’s take a step back in time as I share with you the Best Technical Analysis Books – aka the CMT Level 1 – CMT Level 3 Reading Assignments of 2012.
