Just OK for me but I've been reading about and dabbling with this for a few years now. I would however, recommend it for beginners. Day trading is a full-time job and I have one of those. Therefore, my horizon is out a little longer making me more of a swing trader.

I found the red dot on the book cover humorous. It says, "Anyone can day trade!" I agree but anyone can but the key is to do it profitably.

So so... would only recommend to someone who hasn’t been exposed to trading and thinks it’s an easy pick up and go job; the author correctly states that it’s much more than that and does require time, experience, and education/knowledge. Just was a little pessimistic for someone that’s already been trading and looking to advance/progress techniques and knowledge.

I feel like this book is very informative but the technical jargon is difficult to follow if you’re newer to trading. I felt like the stories and advice that was explained was pretty beneficial as far as actual mindset and what to look for.

If you’re newer to trading and looking for technical advice I would find something with a little more detailed information but again, it could be that I’m just newer and not gonna pick

Basic primer for day trading.

Very basic. Needs to be more detailed for the rookie day trader. Did not learn anything new that I already read from a few other booksellers on the same topic.

A waste of time. Doesn't explain anything in depth and doesn't provide details. ...more

The book is great guidance to be successful in day trading...

- Focus like a laser beam on the screen. NO distractions
- Don't enter the market with too much money and too little of knowledge.
- Don't set daily financial goals trading.
- Create a trading plan and follow RULES.
Good book to learn about chart basics and indicators.
