The book I read to research this post was Technical Analysis For Dummies by Barbara Rockefeller which is a very good book which I bought from kindle.

The topics are broad, spanning everything from reading charts to interpreting a number of different technical indicators to managing trading risk, and they are applicable to any type of securities trading (equities, futures, currencies, and so on). These topics are also covered in introductory trading books, but Technical Analysis for Dummies goes into them in a bit more detail in its 300+ pages.

Do not buy this book for your I pad. I could not read or download the charts. I contacted Kobo customer care and they could not help me. Kobo said they could not fix the problem and gave me a credit. I feel the book is essentially useless without the charts (given it is about technical analysis!).
I generally don't read "Dummies" books, but I found this one to be worthwhile. Sure there were sections that I merely scanned, but the presentation and descriptions seemed adequate. Recommended.
