About the Author

Alpesh Patel is co-founder of asset manager, Praefinium Partners and www.alpeshpatel.com and has had over 200 columns on trading published by the Financial Times in his 'The Diary of an Internet Trader' column. Alpesh is a former Visiting Fellow in Business at Corpus Christi College, Oxford University and a qualified barrister. He won the competition in the Financial Times to predict the value of the FTSE 100 over a 12 month period, coming within 0.5% of the final value. For Bloomberg TV he presented trading shows for three years. Alpesh has lectured on trading in Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore, Guatemala, Spain, Dubai and San Francisco. Alpesh's trading blog is available at www.alpeshpatel.com/blog. Past clients of Alpesh’s company for customer acquisition include Barclays, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Merrill Lynch, HSBC and all the major spread betting companies. Paresh Kiri has vast experience as a floor trader on the world's second largest derivatives exchange, LIFFE, and as a portfolio manager for 18 years. He is an FSA regulated Investment Manager. Starting his career on the LIFFE floor in 1993, Paresh was one of the first traders to embrace screen trading, through the LIFFE online trading platform APT - Automated Pit Trading. Making progress under the guidance of the legendary LIFFE trader David Kyte, he was one of the most consistent traders on the largest product on the floor - the Japanese Government Bond. After successfully completing the Investment Management Certificate in 1996 he was one of the founders of Kyte Securities. From trading financial futures and option products, Paresh had his first taste of trading shares. During the next three years he was instrumental in discovering bespoke strategies for trading equities globally. In 2000, Kyte Securities became Eden Financial - which is now one of the most respected wealth management companies in the City of London, and the strategies developed were then incorporated as the backbone to the Tomahawk hedge fund, run by Marble Bar Asset Management. Since leaving Eden Financial in 1999, Paresh has been managing private client and institutional money. He has also been developing an Index Options Desk, and seeking ways of bringing the strategies he developed to the wider public audience by structuring managed accounts services using online trading platforms. Paresh regularly coaches and holds private seminars on trading the markets.

Format: Paperback
There is some useful material here both for the novice and the old hand. Much of it has been seen before but not with the backing of hard data and all in one place.

Won't, as the title suggests, make you a winner. But may help you stop losing. With good solid information of the difference in style between losers and winners, you would need very good reasons to ignore the advice.

I have kindle version. Text looks badly formatted and the whole thing feels like it has been rushed together from a few notes that the author had lying around. There is some useful information in this book and the authors clearly know the subject. It is a shame that the quality of presentation and editing is lacking. Difficult to recommend. I would like a refund but don't think that is possible. There are better books

I have read lots of books on technical analysis and lots of trading systems. To any one who's done the same I recommend they start again and read Robbie Burns books "The Naked Trader" and "The Naked Trader's Guide to Spread Betting", and then read this book. Then maybe it will help steer them away from becoming a trading systems addict who's on a quest for the holy grail of systems and guide them towards looking inward, taking responsibility and then building their own trading strategies.

I give this book five stars because it is easy to read and it dissects trading and spread betting with a surgeon's knife.

In another life, when I first looked at share investing and when I heard people talk. They would say things such as:- "Now is not a good time to buy shares, there's nothing going up." I'm sure everybody's heard it. But I knew deep down that someone was playing a different game. They made money any time and in any market conditions and they didn't just trade shares and I thought that a select group of private investors were quietly doing the same.

Guess what? I was right! There are people out there trading futures, going long and short, trading commodities and currencies and they do it in good times and bad. Spread Betting is a great entry level into the world of financial derivatives. But it has to be treated with extreme respect. Which is why I recommended Robbie Burns's book "Naked Trader's Guide to Spread Betting" because it tells you what you need to do to remain financially solvent if you decide to take up this noble art. "How to Win at Spread Betting" then breaks everything down for you so that you can see what wins and what doesn't.

I like Patel's books - I bought the first one after an impressive appearance on TV ( his not mine !) - and I liked this one.

He keeps it simple and emphasises a disciplined, low-risk approach. He's experienced,articulate and opinionated. Where he , unusually , expresses complex ideas then they are fully explained and underpinned.

I wouldn't however have bothered to submit a review if I hadn't disagreed with the 'poor proof reading' comments previously expressed.

I bought the Kindle version on 9/11/2013 and it reads fine - I haven't carried out a forensic investigation but I found no problems at all and I used all the charts as I followed the text - perhaps its been revised.

The Kindle is no place for complex charts but I wanted the immediate gratification - in any event there are only one or two which caused me to squint.

As regards the content of the book - use the 'look inside' feature, its entirely representative.
