This groundbreaking technical analysis primer was written in 1970 by Sherman and Marian McClellan. Patterns for Profit introduced the McClellan Oscillator and Summation Index to the world. Still cited by technical analysts many years after it was first published, this booklet covers the calculation and interpretation of the McClellan Oscillator and Summation Index, as well as the meaning of the chart patters which they form. It also comes with over 40 years of chart history showing how these indicators have behaved in different periods.
