Editorial Review - Book Description:

Rules for successful trading, direct from the traders who practice them every day

Even with today`s high-speed computers, online accounts, and information access, traders still live or die based on their abilities to control fear, greed, and emotion. The Market Is Always Right gives traders battle-proven advice for avoiding common trading setbacks by understanding human nature­­both their own and others`­­and directing it toward profitable outcomes.

Distilling the wisdom of hundreds of traders, this proactive book starts with 10 overriding rules­­for example, "Evaluate your performance"­­and then lists the subrules within each, such as "Qualify and quantify your trading pattern." Other examples include:

  • Never chase trades
  • Watch the open­­don`t trade it
  • When in doubt, get out

Exceptional advice from a seasoned veteran, August 11, 2003 ByJohn Williams (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Market Is Always Right (Hardcover) I have read other books by Mr. McCafferty and have found this one to be the most valuable, not to mention entertaining. It seems as though most of the newer books out there are just a rehashing of commonly known techniques and offer little valuable insight into how the market actually operates, that is not the case with this fine book.

Supply and demand rule the markets 5. Commit your thoughts to paper 6. Developing and perfecting your trading shtick 7. Enhancing your shtick 8. Discipline 9. Staying the course 10. On becoming the ideal traderThough the above can be commonly found in most trading books, the author had done it relatively well by drawing many uncommon analogies, stories, idiomatic phrases that put life into the book. In particular I like his description of successful traders as captains in the oceans, mice in the laboratories and actuaries in insurance companies. In short, if you wanna read a good trading psychology book, this is it. If you want TA or FA knowledge, look somewhere else. p.s. The seven cardinal sins of...
