ART AND SCIENCE OF TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: First of all the science part is heavily overdone.  Anybody who thinks that an algorithm guarantees his success in investing and trading will soon be disabused of the notion.  Algorithms can help you cheat if you’re Lehman and their ilk and can give you an edge if you have […]
