Product Description

Review

"This book will let you see the little-known but effective trading tactics and methods of today's top market makers."--Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities

From the Back Cover

A Market Maker Reveals How He:

  • Times Entry and Exit Points for Minimum Risk, Maximum Profit
  • Combines Fundamental and Technical Analysis
  • Controls His Environment Every Day, with Every Trade!

Hundreds of books, written from the buy-side viewpoint of the successful trader, promise day trading success. The Market Maker's Edge is the first book to turn the tables, working from the sell side to explain how the market maker routinely maintains the upper hand, seizing profits while controlling risk in today's volatile marketplace. Written by a Josh Lukeman--a Morgan Stanley Dean Witter market maker who has honed his skills for years--The Market Maker's Edge reveals:

  • 4 signals for spotting--and profiting from--a developing trend
  • Important risk control concepts every trader must know to protect against losses
  • Advanced trading strategies based on recurring technical patterns

Today's top market makers operate in intensely competitive atmosphere, with millions of dollars at stake. The Market Maker's Edge is today's only trading book written from inside the market maker's domain. Use it to open the door, and shed light on the trading tactics used by Wall Street's most powerful market making institutions.

Format: Hardcover
A must for the daytrader, the week trader, the month trader etc. The book tells you how to find your point of entry and when the redd light is flashing and it is time to get out. It explains several fallacies which will help you to cut your losses. A very, very usefulbook indeed and worth every dollar.
The one disadvantage is that it doesn't look very appetizing and it uses an ugly print. Also the graphics are of pretty bad quality.
All in all: good value for money even if you know nothing about stocks.

I bought this book more by chance than anything else and can honestly say it is probably the best trading book I have come across yet. So many books promise a lot and are full of meaningless waffle. This book is short on flowery waffle and chock full of essential but easy to read information. The title is a bit misleading though. Although it is written for day traders, the information it gives is equally essential to short or long term traders and investers. An outstanding effort by an author I had never heard of before buying this book.

Some nice rules to have in your trading locker, decent bit of perspective from a big institutional background, one of the best books on trading I've read (& re-read).

Some useful insights into trading in a Wall Street bank. The long and the short (ahem) of it is that underneath the surface the message is clear. Banks hold all the advantages and 'great' traders at banks could not do the same without those advantages ie on their own with their own money.

It is pretty sincerely written and there are good practical tips that would stop the average trader from making dumb decisions. The thing is the more info leaks out about dark pools and various other shenanigans the more I don't want to trade. It certainly explains inexplicable market movements that gobble up all my money!! Of course previously I blamed myself for not being well informed or naive (and I still don't rule this out) however I suspect the truth is the market is rigged. I was never a conspiracy theorist but without doubt the banks club together. Upon further inspection the controlling shareholders (of banks) appear to be a small group of inheritor banking clans. They also hold big stakes in a range of other international corporations. A web of immense power and money. Never reported in the press. Deeply disappointing.

Anyway I bring this up because I believe it's the duty of those on the inside of these monoliths (banks,corporations) to enlighten us a little more so we stop being muggles. And I can't help feeling that this author is holding back. In my opinion if you're gonna write a book then dissolve the boundary line and just go for it. Create a historic work that serves humanity. This book.....well this book is merely a bit useful.

Format: Paperback
I am an amateurs trader with a full-time job. When I review the market information every trading day after getting off my work, I always get lost to analyze the market information and am hard to gain any profit. After applying the simple techniques in this book including how/when to short/long, the profit of my portfolio has increased by 10% in 8 trading days. This is really an profit-making book. Although I have read a number of books on trading, all of them are too theortical and hard to apply. This book will teach you how to listen to market based on the useful information and to eliminate the over-analysis of market information. This book covers what you need to know without jargons.

Format: Paperback
I found this book exceptionally clear and informative
The first chapter is crucial in the overall fram of the book
Perhaps a few chapters can be consideres a bit too elementary but
it is a one of the best books I have read on trading so far

Format: Paperback
If you are an experienced day trader, then you already know something of what goes on behind the scenes, and of course to avoid Forex, Spread Betting, CFD's in favour of an established reputable Futures/Stock/Options broker account (CBOE). However, this is the first book I have read of it's kind that takes the lid of the trash cans of Wall Street, and gives some insider insight into what really makes the markets move. You will never have an overnight open position in the markets again. Good common sense real life trading sections. Get in - Grab the points - Get out! Stay flat and sleep tight.....Essential Reading.

I am reading this book now and enjoying it, written in plain English and giving rather practical/valuable information on how to get on with daily trading or on relatively longer holding of stocks.
