Format: Paperback
I know for a fact that many people have actually bought this book and are using the methods contained therein because of the questions that they are asking about certain technical indicators etc on bulletin boards. You know who you are!
Having read this book, I'm not surprised because it is truly inspirational so I'm somewhat chuffed at being able to write the first review (while all you other chaps are busy trading no doubt).
If you are looking for a structured, systematic approach to your trading then this is the book for you. I read it from cover to cover in 2 days and I've been re-reading it as a reference work ever since. The author makes no grand claims (like others I could mention), it is a modest, unpatronising fund of an immense amount of accumulated wisdom. The central image of the book - the idea of climbing a mountain and what you need at each stage- works very well and I was slightly ashamed to realise on reading this book that I hadn't even adequately covered base camp! Needless to say that I quickly remedied this.
Any cons? Not many that I can see ...perhaps a little too FTSE and Sharescope-centric but again the author is describing what works for him and it's good to walk before you can run.I think there's a slight mathematical typo on p.259 and it should read £4 for every £10 invested or £40 for every £100 but this is nit-picking (and my sums may be wrong).
Other than that, I can't really fault this book and I wouldn't wish to...I've learned a lot reading it. Warmly recommended.

After reading this book my spreadbetting improved drastically. Anyone who follows the principles in this book will have the edge over others who do not.

The book is an honest attemmpt to teach people how to become profitable at spreadbetting from someone who already is. It is laid out in a logical format and is very readable.

If you spreadbet you really need to read this book!

If ever there was a book that was sorely needed in this area of investing this is it "The Spread Betting Handbook" by Malcolm Pryor. I have read and re-read this book. It is superb and really does get to grips with the art and science of Spread Betting.

The book uses the analogy of climbing a mountain and starts from Base Camp ie. knowing nothing to reaching the Peak of the montain and knowing alot, in fact knowing enough to become a competent trader.

The book is full of helpful tips and each chapter has a concise summary of the points made. The chapter entitled "Common and Really Expnsive Spread Betting Errors" is a real gem and worth the price of the book itself. I have personally gained much from reading this book and I am sure that others whether novice or experienced traders will also be impressed with its clarity and comprehensive coverage of the subject of Spread Betting.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book a few months ago when I started spreadbetting. It has been an invaluable resource and I am always referring to it. Every page has valuable information and I keep on re-reading certain parts. It teaches the fact that spread betting is not a game and you have to have a systematic approach otherwise you'll lose money. You may still gain from studying technical analysis in more detail though this is also covered somewhat in the book.Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This book is a thoughtful guide to making money through spread betting. This is particularly useful at present when many people are burning through having geared long positions in a difficult market. Malcolm suggests ways of controlling risk while not being tied to a particular market direction. If the advice is followed, more people will be able to sleep easy!

Format: Paperback
I liked this book and it followed on nicely from The Beginner's Guide to Financial Spread Betting by Michelle Baltazar.

It covers the important areas of Psychology, Methodology and probably most importantly Risk Management. I was expecting more on the Technical Analysis side but this clearly seems to be a big topic in itself which is evident by Malcolms reference to recommended books for further reading.

If you are serious about trading you should read this book.

Excellent foundation in Spreadbetting. Read this before contemplating joining the Trader's University or other expensive course - you may decide you don't need anything else before starting.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Mr. C. B. Riley on 14 Sept. 2007
Format: Paperback
A good book if your new to spreadbetting, the nuts and bolts of different types of bets, how to open, close and pyramid bets is covered well. The choice of spreadbetting co's is also well done (I.E. how to choose, not what to choose).

The volatility idea's were very good also.

My only gripe is the author's over-reliance on the ADX indicator. One example of BP. was downright dangerous, entering into a long, when most other indicators were showing bearish divergences!

Technically weak, but then it's not what this book is about...
