Dal risvolto interno:
Traders in today's fast-moving financial futures markets must contend with market noise that is ambiguous, contradictory, and (here's the worst part) almost entirely random. More than ninety percent of traders will eventually go broke trying to make sense of, and systemize, that noise.
But for those that learn the tricks of survival, the rewards can be phenomenal. How can you become one of the five to ten percent of traders that survive the learning curve, design a profitable system, and turn financial futures trading into a profitable sideline or even a full-time career?
Beating the Financial Futures Market provides you with a straightforward, historically proven program to cut through the noise, determine what bits of information are valuable, and integrate those bits into an overall trading program designed to jump on lucrative trading opportunities as they occur. Written by veteran commodities trader, systems designer, lecturer, author, and Chicago Board of Trade member Art Collins, this comprehensive trading handbook details:
The backroads of financial futures trading are littered with failed geniuses, traders who spent their days trying to outthink the markets. Beating the Financial Futures Markets will show you how to simplify your trading program by strictly adhering, 100 percent of the time, to a focused roster of mechanical trading techniques. It will help you remove much of the difficulty from your trading day by developing a disciplined, turnkey system and letting the system do the work—leaving you to simply make trades as specified by your system, institute the necessary safeguards, and dramatically improve both your percentage of winning trades and the bottomline profitability of those winning trades.
