Product Description

About the Author

John Piper has been involved with markets since his early twenties. In the late 1980s he started to trade options full time and did so right through the Crash of 1987 - an experience that stands him in good stead for markets today. For over a decade he has been the editor of The Technical Trader, the leading newsletter in the UK for those who trade futures and options markets worldwide. His articles bring a fine edge of analysis to markets and how they work. He trades full time, making consistent profits, and now manages money for selected clients at Berkeley Futures Ltd, a firm regulated by the SFA. He lives in Cobham, Surrey and in Massa, Italy. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
John Piper's stimulates your trader's mind. He takes you through the trading business mentally and prepares you well, in logical stages, for a difficult and disciplined business. This book is especially good if you have done some trading before (even with very little experience), whether you have been a loser, winner or have come away at breakeven. It makes you feel good about yourself and that is one big important step towards successful trading. You will start to discover your own trading personality as you read, because Piper unveils all the psychological obstacles associated with trading. Once you recognise all these, then you will be able to deal with them effectively and positively whilst you are actually trading. It's good to read about another trader's actions and also experience those "trader's" emotion at the same time. At some point you will feel that you have a trading coach and you know you are not alone in this business (because that's exactly how you feel when you are trading).
He is an active trader and his experience shows in his writing. He teaches you what the market is telling you. He shares his common knowledge of how traders think (because he is one) when the market tells where it is going (or not going). He makes you aware of market behaviour and patterns, so you can them to your advantage. There is an excellent chapter near the end, which takes you through a two-week trading campaign, which Piper actually traded. The good thing about that reality is that his market position went wrong right from the beginning. Well it's good because it's what going to happen to you when you trade (at some point).

A sound all-round trading manual carrying the battle scars of a successful trader! Valuable guidance on risk & money management - why take anything other than low risk trades? Being futures orientated it stopped short of my requirements as an options trader - indeed the author initially demotivated me by repeatedly saying how unprofitable options trading is. It isn't! Try Elder's 'Trading for a Living'.

Genuinely useful. Some technical jargon in there but an easy read on the whole mindset of trading rather than technical or chart analysis. Since reading it I've done away with some bad habits. I'm much more risk averse, and I've reduced losses. It helped for me in the same way that Allen Carr's stop smoking book works - a slow drip, drip, drip, common sense approach which eventually starts to change your behaviours over time.

Straight, practical and easy to understand to even the novice trader. I noticed all the traits in this book within my own personality when trading, this book helped me overcome my emotions before I reacted and made 40% within the first three months.
