Dummies?…While I love the series of "dummies" books. (they have helped me on more than one occasion) I can't say that the title or application fits when it comes to the business of swing trading. I point out on my homepage that bookstores have thousands of books available on the topic of stock trading…yet 90% of traders continue to lose money. That can't speak well for the content of those books but in all fairness, you could give most traders a solid trading system on a silver platter and they still couldn't make money with it because of their own internal issues as it pertains to fear and greed. Now, that being said, I don't think it is possible to boil down all of the intricate pieces of stock trading into the typical "dummies" format. Traders tend to be some of the most intellectual and analytical people in the world so at the very least I think the book title is a sleight to them as a group. As a matter of fact, after reviewing the book, I would have titled it, "The basics of stock trading and swing trading theories". If you are a newbie to trading then this book can help you with the basic but "theories" won't get you anywhere.
If you really want to learn the ins and outs of trading I invite you try my swing trading course. You'll be glad you did.
