About the Author

ADAM GRIMES is the CIO of Waverly Advisors, an asset management and risk advisory firm headquartered in New York.

Grimes's experience as a trader covers futures, equities, currencies, and derivatives, in time frames ranging from intraday to multi-month swings. Though he is primarily a discretionary swing trader, his methodology rests on a firm foundation of statistical and quantitative research. Grimes holds an MBA with an emphasis in finance and market microstructure, and has worked for a number of private investment firms, as well as having spent several years at the New York Mercantile Exchange.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By M. Standen on 5 Dec 2012
Format: Hardcover
After a 3+ year trading journey l would describe myself as a decent lower intermediate FX daily swing trader, or perhaps better described as a "Competent trader" slowly approaching "Proficient trader" on Adam Grimes' matrix.If l had to choose one book/course/trading website above all others that has brought everything together and helped me the most, this book is absolutely it! l had a good grasp of Price Action/Candle Patterns etc before, but the insights the book provides on Market Structure/Order Flow and the psychology behind it all have completed my understanding and the trading templates are completely rock solid and just the tools l was looking for.This is a brilliant book,the one that l will be re-visiting time and again for guidance in all areas of my trading! The author really has brought together the art and science of technical analysis as well as the theory and practice of trading at the hard right edge!The content is so good l almost want to say nothing and keep it to myself, so even more kudos are due to Adam for sharing his knowledge and experience with us all! Thank you!

A great book. Masses of understandable detail. The suggestions for application in the market place look very practical but I have yet to try any of them. Highly recommended.

Better suited to experienced traders. It answers questions we all have, very comprehensively.
Do not expect to be taught basic things though...

Well written book but not for the beginner. Adam Grimes is great and he is doing and using the models in real life

I was impressed with this book, especially the structure and framework used to view markets and trades.

a few lines from the book/blog helped me:

"Every edge we have is driven by an imbalance of buying and selling pressure. From a technical perspective, every edge we have is generated by a disagreement between buyers and sellers. When they are in balance (equilibrium), market movements are random.

The job of traders is to identify those points of imbalance and to restrict their activities in the markets to those times.

Since we cannot profit consistently (i.e., above the probability of a coin flip) in random markets, it makes sense that we should limit our exposure to times where there is a clearly-defined imbalance of buying and selling pressure. When this occurs, which is often visible in certain patterns in prices, we now have the possibility of creating trading profits. Thus, identifying the imbalance, is the first step in any technical trading.

So, ask yourself some hard questions: Do you understand how to identify points of imbalance in the market, and do your trading patterns respect this reality? Do you believe that markets are usually random? Do you understand that no profits are possible in random markets--that nothing will help? Not money management, exit strategies, or positions sizing. You must wait for an imbalance to emerge on your timeframe, and, only then, take action in the market.

What is your edge in the market? How do you know? If you are going to be successful trading, you absolutely must have an edge in the market. Money management is not an edge. Psychology is not an edge.
