The Advance-Decline Line is a market breadth indicator and should be compared to
the other market indices like the Dow Jones or S&P 500. Daily or weekly NYSE data is
used in the calculation. Because the Advance-Decline Line reflects the action of the general
market, any divergences are watched closely by market technicians. As long as the Dow

the Dow makes a new high which is not confirmed by a high of the Advance-Decline Line,
caution is warranted. Vice versa, if the Dow makes a...

by the theory of random walks
Writing a book is rarely a smooth process in which a solitary author
produces a perfect typescript for automatic conversion into the perfect
book. More often the end product has been improved substantially as a
result of inputs from a number of team players who work behind the
scenes to advise, cajole, and encourage the author to make changes for
the better. It can be a difficult process and I must confess I am not the
easiest author to deal with in this connection. It is easy to give advice
