Since it first exploded onto the markets in 1974, THE FUTURES GAME has helped thousands of traders gain an intelligent understanding of futures markets. Over the years, Richard Teweles and Frank Jones have kept their fingers on the pulse of the dynamic futures trading industry, first updating their classic text in 1987. Now, this third edition of THE FUTURES GAME has been completely updated and revised to keep all participants--whether speculators or hedgers, new or veteran--one step ahead of this fast moving, high-stakes game. Combining two decades of strength and wisdom with todayÕs most innovative research and strategic recommendations, this guide to the futures markets continues its reign as the number one tool for futures trading mastery.

No kidding, February 6, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: The Futures Game: Who Wins, Who Loses, & Why (Hardcover) If you are going to trades futures, read this book, make a few trades, then read this book again. It is a cold, hard look at the reality of trading. While just about every other book on futures trading assumes you are a gullible idiot, this one exposes the difficulty of the pursuit. Its depth and breadth are incomparable.

A great futures primer., October 15, 1998 By A Customer This review is from: The Futures Game: Who Wins? Who Loses? Why? (Paperback) This book provides an excellent overview of futures trading. It also deals with options and spreads. Anyone who can completely digest the contents of this entire book may be able to gain a slight edge over other novice, unsophisticated traders. This book is also reccomended by the great Victor Niederhoffer, in his book "Education of a Speculator".
