Summary and Info
This is one of the worst books I have read about trading/financial markets.It might have been an interesting 5-page article in a magazine but almost 200 pages is just very painful for the reader. It's not really about money management except mentioning that stops are important - well, we know that by now. Just a few examples about other things that are very annoying in the book (in pretty random order):[x] The author talks about 7 types of risk (as mentioned in other reviews) but there is not real value in this categorization and the "explanations" are a waste of time, e.g.:"Overnight risk. For day traders, overnight risk presents a concern of what can happen overnight, when the markets are closed, can dramatically impact the value of their position. [...]" Zzzzzzz - tell me something new.[x] In every chart there is advertising for the authors trading system that he tries to sell, e.g.: "THE ART CHARTING SOFTWARE WORKS ON ALL TIME-FRAMES!". By page 5 you know the author has this "fantastic" system but he goes on and on and on about it on every page and every chart.[x] The author never explains on how to do it... he only says that this and that is important, like "Have a plan.", "Find a winning trading system", ... My grandma could have given me more helpful advice.
