sharpened my trading tools and exposed my blind spots, October 29, 1998 By A Customer This review is from: Study Guide for Trading for a Living: Psychology, Trading Tactics, Money Management (Paperback) Sometimes I read a book and think I understand its author's ideas... but 2 weeks later only vaguely recall what i read. Dr Elder's STUDY GUIDE did a fantastic job of exposing my blind spots. Each of its questions is referenced to a specific chapter in the book. He shows you charts and puts you into trading situations, then asks, what will you do? He tells you not only what answers are correct but why they are correct and why others are wrong! The self-rating scales at the end of each chapter showed me exactly where I stood and what I needed to do next. A great follow-up to TRADING FOR A LIVING!

Time is $$$. Study this book to make $$$ out of your time., April 6, 1999 ByScott Gardner "Software developer and consult... (Central IL) - See all my reviews This review is from: Study Guide for Trading for a Living: Psychology, Trading Tactics, Money Management (Paperback) If you've read Magee & Edwards, congratulate yourself (not too much), then READ THIS BOOK! The focus of Trading for a Living is 3-part (as the title suggests): 1. Psychology - individual vs. group; loser vs. winner. 2. Money Management - he who loses less gains more. 3. Indicators and Systems - you may shed tears of joy at Dr. Elder's efficient explanations and abundant analogies to drive each point home. Trading for a Living is a practical, let's get down to it, who, what, when, where, why, and how book. -- One topical group not discussed is Level 2 NASDAQ and Time & Sales analysis. Any suggested readings on this would be greatly appreciated!
