Success in stock trading starts by applying wiser and REALISTIC tactics for choosing stocks.

Profitable traders tend to think more realistically towards the market. They know they can benefit when stocks go up and also when they FALL down.

It doesn't matter if the stock market is UP or down. There are always going to be certain stocks with positive or negative momentum that you can buy or short sell, either in pre-market hours, regular market hours or in the after hours session.

Lucrative trades can take anywhere between 2 and 15 minutes. And in some occasions You will be able to ride a very good stock for a full day or more.

I have been an active trader since 2002. I am a financial junkie, and have read many books, read the journal, IBD, and other Business magazines. This is the best book to learn 'Day Trading', and 'Short Term Trading'. I consider this a 'Financial Bible'. This is all you need. Thanks Toni. I have referred this book to many of my friends.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I've been studying stock market full time from Morning to Night for 1 year and papertrading. If I haven't read this book I'd still be scratching my head trying to figure out why things happen in the market. Market makers have a major role in what happens and she explains their game to you. They do have more experience and control over the market than traders do. So either you learn or they burn you. Your choice

A very good book to learn day-trading. If you are new to trading, you should consider reading this book

I'm learning trading. This book is easy to understand, includes quizzes at the end of each chapter, and provides lots of "hot tips". I especially liked the day-by-day, two week boot camp.

Did not read gifted.
tedsbooks8 More than 1 year ago
I have very little patience when it comes to reading badly written books. This one is very well written with solid unique points, but i feel it should cover more on how to pick hot stocks for short term profits. For those who think hot stocks is the way to go in this volatile market I recommend MomentumStockPick com
