I'd love to have been able to acknowledge the help I received from dozens of people on the completion of this work, but in truth there were only seven. So it is with particular gratitude that I acknowledge the assistance of the following:
Research assistants: Jeremy Chew, BS, UC Berkeley; Laura Graziano, BS, Indiana University, MBA, Santa Clara University; and David Carroll, BA, UC Berkeley
Statistical analysis: James Wang, Economics and Statistics major, UC Berkeley
Special research: Kristen Lehman, BA, University of Texas
Finance advisor: Wayne Price, Finance Instructor, UC Berkeley Extension
Editing: Melissa Honig, BA, UC Irvine, MA, Cal State Northridge, who knows as much about finance as I do about communicative disorders but who proved to be one heck of an editor and a great sport about my obsession with writing this book.
Special thanks to Lawrence McMillan for his Foreword and for the inspiration I have received from his work over many years in both options and technical analysis. Special thanks also to Chip Anderson, President of StockCharts.com, and his staff for the great work they do on their Website.
