Is there a 'bible' for technical analysis? (July 22, 2000)

  We have not found a book that we view as 'definitive' because none cover all of the aspects we view as important (sounds as if there is the need for a book here). There are a few to look at. On is 'The Visual Investor' by Murphy. It is a good introduction into trendlines and indicators such as MACD and stochastics, but it does not get into signature patterns. Another is 'Trading for a Living' by Alexander Elder. For candlestick patterns, 'Candlestick Charting Explained' by Gregory Morris is the seminal work. For cup with handle patterns, William O'Neal, the publisher of Investor's Business Daily, has a book 'How to Make Money in Stocks' that covers the cup with handle pattern. All are good, but none incorporate everything we look at. Again, sounds as if we need to crank out a book.
