Mastering the Trade, Second Edition: Proven Techniques for Profiting from Intraday and Swing Trading Setups

Your essential guide to launching a successful career in trading …

The chapters on psychology (1 and 2) of this “Mastering the Trade” book are spot on whether you trade futures or stocks.

Chapter 3 (Tools for Traders) is a little random doesn’t really concentrate on tools more so buy a decent computer which you should know already and get some good quotes with other things thrown in Chapter 4 – futures trading.

Well either you trade futures or you don’t but this showed me that even if you don’t you should still watch the futures market because in many cases this drives the stock market – that was key information for me.

Chapter 5 of this “Mastering the Trade” book – Intro to options will save you money if you listen by steering away from buying out of the money options.

Chapter 6 Eye Opener – talks about market internal indicators that I personally had not seen written about in any other book – very good information

Chapters 7-22 are all about setups. There is enough information to get you hooked and interested but not enough to make you profitable without purchasing indicators and taking more of their training. This is why I couldn’t give it a 5.

The setups are nice but just enough to be dangerous to your account. I guess I cant really blame them because who wants to give away all of their hard won information for the price of a book.

The squeeze and the waves are the main indicators. The propulsion play chapter on stocks needs a lot of work not enough explanation at all on how to enter the trade and exit the trade.

In general not enough information on exits in the setups. Most of these setups concentrate on day traders so be wary if you aren’t a day trader because many of them won’t work.

Chapters 23- 26 This “Mastering the Trade” book returns to form – great information. Sample Trading plan is worth its weight in gold!

Bottom Line: This is one of the better books you can ever read on trading!
