NEW YORK, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Technical Analyst, a publication that brings technical trading ideas to the institutional financial markets, just named Investing with Volume Analysis (FT Press, $49.99, 352 pps, ISBN – 9780137085507, published March 2011) as its Book of the Year at an award ceremony in London on April 18, 2013. Author Buff Dormeier accepted the award saying, "I am very honored to accept this award and do so with deep humility. As I look upon the short list of finalists, I see exceptionally written books by very accomplished technicians all of whom I deeply respect and we all admire…Our craft is indeed a unique fraternity. We work in a field where knowledge and skill are equivalent to power. Although none of us know the future, as accomplished practitioners of TA we have each developed an edge, an edge to be treasured but not necessarily hidden." FT Press was represented well at the event, as Technical Analysis (FT Press, $71.99, 704 pps., ISBN – 9780137059447, published November 2010) from Charles Kirkpatrick and Julie Dalhquist was the runner-up for the award.

Investing with Volume Analysis stretches the field of market analysis and offers an enlightened look at the role of volume within modern markets. Dormeier explains his proprietary methodologies to uncover asymmetrical relationships between price and volume never before revealed. He instructs the reader not only how to pragmatically use this information to spot disparities and sniff out upcoming trend reversals, but perhaps more importantly, how and why these methods can be effective. This book is the authoritative resource on all things volume.
