What is the best, preferably Australian, book on technical analysis?

The best Australian book is Ivan Krastins Listen to the Market (McGraw-Hill). The best general text on technical analysis is probably John Murphy Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets (NYIF). The best book on trading as a whole is Dr Alexander Elder Trading for a Living (Wiley).

Better than books, I think would be for you to consider doing the two technical analysis subjects at the Securities Institute of Australia - E114 Technical Analysis and E171 Specialised Techniques in Technical Analysis.
