Very detailed - good for both new & experienced traders!, February 4, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: Intelligent Futures Trading (Hardcover) No much fluff here... Chick lays it all out on the line, explaining how to make, lose, and not lose your fortunes in futures. He will try to scare the timid/weak at heart beginners off in the beginning chapter, but after that it's all good. Personally, in following his learned from experience stretegies, I have been profitable. When I forget the "rules" taught in the book and play from the cuff eventually I find myself getting burned for half of what I've made, which is very frustrating, but part of the learning curve. I find myself re-reading sections of the book over-and-over trying to absorb into my cells the wisdom he professes - particularly pages 55-58 (Money Management) & pages 77-80 (Trading). Good value in this book, a lot more practical than many of the other older books out there or some of those from the "market gurus." Chick is a real trader like me, and that helps me relate/respect his experience and advice. Give it a go! Good...

Vague, poorly done, August 17, 2003 By A Customer Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Intelligent Futures Trading (Hardcover) I cannot believe the other reviews. Have any of you ever traded before? This has to be one of the worst trading books I've ever read. I've read hundreds and have an extensive library, as well as over 15 years trading experience. He gives many ideas and suggestions of how to enter and exit trades based on SMR Charts, but nothing concrete because there are so many variations you could "try". Basically trade with the trend and "try" to buy a pullback. Any other book on swing trading would be better and more useful. This is just swing trading using SMR Charts and their indicators, though you can use your own similar indicators. This book is very expensive for something you can get out of any swing trading book, which would give you a lot more value and insight for your money. On money management, same thing, vague - not much more value than telling someone "don't trade too heavy" and to "go with your best guess". You might notice...

Exceptional Book!, January 28, 2000 By A Customer This review is from: Intelligent Futures Trading (Hardcover) I trade stocks and options at a hedge fund and feel that this is one of the best books that I have ever read on shorter-term trading--and I have read them all. If you want to look over the shoulder a trader who knows what he is doing, look no further.
