watch a good trader at work, June 14, 2004 ByR. B. Geller (Fairfax, VA USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mastering Futures Trading : An Advanced Course for Sophisticated Strategies that Work (Hardcover) This book is the best of trading books: First, it has excellent theory about set-ups, trading psychology and identifying good and bad streaks in the market for your individual style. Second, it follows the author and lets you watch over his shoulder as he executes trades over the course of some days in 2003.The emphasis is on S&P and treasury futures but the principles apply to any futures trading.The prose is very readable. The author explains where to place stops, and focuses on his style which is largely swing trading -- selling from support into resistance or from resistance to support.It has helped me trade better and it will help a lot of people who are getting started in futures trading.

*** LOOK ELSEWHERE ***, July 16, 2004 ByIZZRAINERZZ (OHIO) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Futures Trading : An Advanced Course for Sophisticated Strategies that Work (Hardcover) I wasted my money on this book, but I didn't waste my time -- at about page 40, I started to skim thru the rest of it.The book contains the usual caveats and recommendations concerning money management, except for a "Rule of 10," which really did not fit in. Basic explananations included are chart patterns, support and resistance, and candlestick reversals.Then, fully 94 pages are devoted to a self-indulgent log of 6 weeks of trading by the author, listing subjective interpretations of events in making trading decisions. How we are to become "masters of futures trading" by reliving this undisciplined hodgepodge, I do not know.If you have not already done so, investigate the books of Perry Kaufman, Alexander Elder and Jacob Bernstein, and get your time and your money's worth.

Better than average, February 13, 2006 ByProTrader (USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mastering Futures Trading : An Advanced Course for Sophisticated Strategies that Work (Hardcover) The most interesting concept in this book is the discussion of Payout and Payback periods. Every trader will be able to relate. There seem to be times when nothing goes right, and other periods where one can do no wrong. The author stresses recognition of the phase that you, and the market are in, and alter trade size and agressiveness accordingly. Traders at all levels may be aided by taking this approach, or at least giving some thought to whether one is in sinc with the market or not. The balance seems to be geared toward the novice trader, and is not a bad addition to a newcomer's trading library. Certainly, many, many worse books are read each day.
