high-resolution spectral estimates to consistently pinpoint and exploit
market cycles and trends.

chapters which provide information that makes MESA a much more powerful
tool. Topics within these chapters include:

How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Marketby
Hungarian by birth, Nicolas Darvas trained as an economist at the
University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the
Nazis or the Soviets took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged
exit visa and fifty pounds sterling to stave off hunger in Istanbul,
Turkey. During his off hours as a dancer, he read some 200 books on the
market and the great speculators, spending as much as eight hours a day
studying.Darvas invested his money into a couple of stocks that had been
hitting their 52-week high. He was utterly surprised that the stocks
continued to rise and subsequently sold them to make a large profit. His
main source of stock selection was Barron's Magazine. At the age of 39,
after accumulating his fortune, Darvas documented his techniques in the
book, How I Made 2,000,000 in the Stock Market. The book describes his
unique "Box System", which he used to buy and sell stocks. Darvas' book
remains a classic stock market text to this day.

Point and Figure charts are one of the great secrets of the Technical
Analysis world. Highly sophisticated and with a thoroughbred pedigree,
they can, however, be overlooked by traders today.
Jeremy du Plessis -
one of the foremost Point and Figure experts in the world - returns with
a fully updated second edition of this definitive guide in an effort to
redress this imbalance. This second edition, with an extensive revision
to the text and introduction of brand new techniques, demystifies the
world of Point and Figure charting. It includes a detailed explanation
of the history and development of the technique from its invention to
the modern day, and covers the makeup of the chart patterns, why they
are created, and how to interpret them. Throughout, readers are
encouraged to understand Point and Figure charts from first principles,
rather than just remember the names of a series of patterns. It is the
first major work for 50 years to discuss in depth the original 1-box
reversal method of Point and Figure charting and contrast it with the
more popular 3-box reversal method.
Further, the explanation of how to
use Point and Figure charts to project targets and calculate risk-reward
ratios is the most comprehensive ever seen. Also featured in the second
All this is illustrated with numerous colour
charts and observations from years of trading experience. According to
du Plessis, Point and Figure charts are the 'voice of the market'. This
book helps you listen to, and understand, that voice. Part of the Market
