Dow Theory

  Dow Theory

The principles of Dow Theory was formulated by Charles Dow in the early 20th century. It was codified later in its present form and is probably the most widely followed and understood field within Technical Analysis; probably because of its ease of understanding and application. Work by Edwards & Magee and many others have made the original Dow Theory more accessible to today's analysts.

BIC's Course on Dow Theory comprehensively covers all the aspects of Dow Theory, its application to the stock (and other) markets and goes on to describe how to use Dow Theory to make trading and investing decisions. The theory is amply complemented with live up-to-date stock charts from the Indian markets.
