It covers it all, June 16, 2001 By"goof_" - See all my reviews This review is from: The Compleat Guide to Day Trading Stocks (Hardcover) A great book! Easy to understand, fast paced introduction to trading. I have read some other books that seem to repeat the same thing over and over through half the book, before getting to the nuts and bolts. But this one is constantly smooth to read from start to finish. I couldn't put it down till I was done.

For those willing to work at day trading., March 14, 2001 By A Customer This review is from: The Compleat Guide to Day Trading Stocks (Hardcover) This is an excellent book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is willing to work at day trading. This isn't a book that promises riches in a few easy steps. At the start of the book, the author writes: "If you seek success as a day trader, you'll have to make your money the good old-fashioned way: you'll have to do some work." In addition to doing a good job of providing an overview of several technical indicators (including lists of the PROS and CONS of each one), the author devotes several chapters to detailed explanations of various approaches. He also provides information on (the indispensable idea of) system development, practical considerations of day trading, and the psychology of day trading. Again, to anyone who is serious about day trading, I would HIGHLY recommend this book.

Its highly regarded author, Jake Bernstein takes the reader from the very basics such as realistic risk/reward considerations, the essential mechanics of trend-following systems, fundamental vs. technical analysis, timing indicators, stochastics and charts, all the way to clear and precise systems and methods as well as the Psychology of Day Trading. He goes out of his way to make sure that the reader is absolutely aware of all aspects of day trading before making a commitment - including the long and painful learning curve that is inevitable - and clearly states who should not undertake day trading. Having said that, if the reader understands this, and is still firmly committed to making day trading a success, Mr. Bernstein gives his utmost support by going deeply into the nuts and bolts of the art by providing a solid foundation with...
