Millionaire Traders

{mosimage}I picked up a copy of "Millionaire Traders" by Kathy Lien and Boris Schlossberg a couple of weeks ago and just returned it to the bookstore.  I know I've been tough on Lien/Schlossberg in the past with their forex trading service but I just wanted to mention that my thoughts of this book were not influenced by their service.  What a snoozer this book was.  It was impossible to get through.  It's basically a "Market Wizards" style question and answer book but it comes nowhere near to the quality of the Schwager books.   I had never heard of any of the traders profiled in this book and I would have loved to know how Lien and Schlossberg verified that these traders were in fact successful.  Some of them just didn't sound successful and some of the answers to questions were questionable at best.   Sorry, but in this business, you need to show me PROOF and they just don't do it.  This is just my opinion.  Don't take my word for it, check out the book yourself.  If anything, it's a good substitute for a sleeping pill. 

The 10 Essentials of Forex Trading

I was in the same Barnes and Noble today where I first started reading about Forex 18 months ago.  I always peruse the Investing section to see if there are any new and interesting books to explore.  Today, I stumbled upon a book just released by Jared Martinez titled, The 10 Essentials of Forex Trading.  I looked through it for about 30 minutes and I have to say that it is in the same class as James Dicks book, Forex Made Easy.  It contained the same drivel that you can find plastered all over the internet.  There's the self-promotion of the Market Traders Institute of which Jared is the owner of and absolutely nothing insightful.  I couldn't even believe that such as book is allowed to be published.  It sucks that people write books with disregard for others and only for self benefit.  I understand that the point is for the author to make money but come on…. provide some value.

Entries & Exits

Dr. Alexander Elder leads you into 16 trading rooms where you meet traders who open up their diaries and show you their trades. Some of them manage money, others trade for themselves; some trade for a living, others are on the semi-professional level. All are totally serious and honest in sharing their trades with those who would like to learn. You will meet American and international traders who trade stocks, futures, and options using a variety of methods. All are normally very private, but now, thanks to their relationships with Dr. Elder, you can see exactly how these traders decide to enter and exit trades. Each chapter illustrates an entry and an exit for two trades, with comments by Dr. Elder. With this book as your guide, you can get closer to mastering the key themes of trading—psychology, tactics, risk control, record keeping, and the decision-making process.
