The STA also donated some technical analysis books to the City Business Library in London. This reference-only range of books includes Steve Nison’s Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques; Jeremy du Plessis’ Definitive Guide to Point & Figure; Peter Bernstein’s Against the Gods – the Remarkable Story of Risk and several other leading technical analysis books.
THE STA COLLECTION:
The STA has an extensive library of classic technical analysis texts. There are around 1000 books in the collection. All of the books on the STA Diploma Part 1 and 2 reading lists are held in the collection, generally in multiple copies. We have attempted to provide more than one authority on all major topics within technical analysis. For instance we have five authors on Point & Figure and four on Candlestick charts.

Our librarian is always interested in suggestions for books to add to the collection. Please contact him via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Society’s objective is to keep its book collection current and up to date, allowing any member to borrow not only classics but also the most recent books on technical analysis. The entire STA collection has been catalogued and can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
