Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Most people who want to make a killing in stocks and bonds think all they need is an account and some cash, but really what they should start with are formal business plans and basic trading know-how. Traders mistakenly believe they'll score big if they can predict the markets, but smart trading has nothing to do with guessing the future. Would-be investors should first take the time to understand themselves and their motivations, so they can avoid emotionally sabotaging their investments. Considering all this, buying lottery tickets might sound like an easier road to riches. But don't fret; help is at hand. "Super trader" Van K. Tharp explains what you need to know about yourself and about trading to make money. He invites you to use his proven techniques, savvy suggestions and expert advice to cruise successfully in both bull and bear markets. While you may need some analytical trading expertise and more than a little patience to follow Tharp's sometimes meandering, stream-of-consciousness views, getAbstract appreciates his idea that investors should know how they think, how they feel and what they're doing before putting their skin in the game.

Tharp goes more in depth into psychological and some other strategic aspects of good trading like trader's mission and objectives. The lecture is rather short but still constitutes a valuable follow-up to his most important "Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom".

Ive read Van Tharps other work Trade your way to Financial Freedom and found it an excellent book on trading. I was looking forward to this book to add to it but alas it seems to gloss over all the important things and not go into much detail. This is still an excellent standalone book and points out the often ignored vital areas that traders should be moving towards. There was a more expanded part on psychology which was good. Still a good book compared to most of the rubbish out there and I can easily recommend it.

I suppose I expected a holy grail type answer to becoming a super trader. What you get is a workbook type book of things you have to do to become a great / super trader. Yes, its a comprehensive list but......

Before you trade, you need to read as many of Van Tharp's books as possible, you cannot be successful until you read and understand the content. This book is not a trade setup book, but about money management, and protecting your capital through position sizing. I cannot be without his books, also consider taking the 'Tharp trader test' to see what kind of trader you have the potential to become. If you want to succeed, then you need this book. All the professional traders use this technique to manage their trades. This book is an excellent way to start, know yourself, let the market give you the opportunities for success.
