I want to thoroughly learn about technical analysis, or more exactly, how technical indicators or overlays are used in quantitative trading strategies.
Being a beginner to the area, I can't understand most of the terminology when I read up about indicators (e.g. on stockcharts.com), and just google the terms that I can't understand. But this way of learning seems too haphazard.
Could anyone please suggest an intro-level book that explains not only the technical indicators/overlays, but also the basic concepts (like whipsaw, short/long stop, retracement, divergence, breakout, etc.) that are essential to understand while learning technical analysis?
