Description: *

His conclusions were first documented in this groundbreaking classic. This book has become a classic and it is held in exceptionally high esteem by serious technical analysts and market students.

The work of Hurst inspired cycles analysts who came later, and his work represents the most important factor behind the analysis later done by such cycles luminaries as Peter Eliades, Walter Bressert, Jim Tillman, and Brian Millard. Indeed, Peter Eliades says that "sometimes a single moment changes all the ones that follow. For me it was the discovery of Hursts' book, 'The Profit Magic of Stock Transaction Timing'. It was responsible for changing my life." Millard says "Imagine my delight and pleasure when I came across this priceless book!"
