    I’m asking why the authors of this kind of book (Trading systems that work, The ultimate trading system, Winning Trading Systems, How to make 1.000.000$ in one year with Futures and so on.)they are not living in some beautiful islands of the Pacific with the broker who sends them checks every day. Why they need to write books? for their “infinite goodness”? , I don’t think.
    The sad truth is they do BIG BIG money selling the books and not following their system trading.


    P.S. If you think that you need to buy 100 T.A. books , just stay out from this business.

    Recommended but wuth some caution. The pluses include author is candid about his thoughts, raises some excllent points about using percent rather than dollar amounts. When testing use either market adaptive stops or percents to normalize. It is however a diifcult read….never managed to finish reading it cover to cover. I have large amounts of it on many occassions and do feel qualified to comment. I really liked his comments on TRADESTATION the so called industry standard…an overpriced and [very] ugly way of inflicting testing your methodology to come by !

    Now system writer that was one that really made a gargantuan difference to actual traders

  3. remember: there is no such thing as a free lunch..you have to build systems yourself and test test test and then optimise a bit.(I said a bit :-)

    Think you will start coding a profitable trading system after this book? Not really worth the time reading if you had any time working on any type of system, even the most simple MA Cross over, you would get the idea.

    If you want a caned system, this is not the book for you. What this book will teach you is how to evaluate a system that you are developing. It is a little hard to read, but the excel formulas are worth it.

    It covers the essetials of a good trading system (entry, exit and money management) and explains why not all good trading systems are profitable. (All profitable trading systems must be good first).
