The After-Hours Trader: How to Make Money 24 Hours a Day Trading Stocks at Night
The After Hours Trader will show you how to trade stocks with the same tools and the same knowledge as the pros have enjoyed for years. Like any profitable enterprise, it does involve risks.
In Section I of our book, we will give you an overview of the after-hours market, including a brief history of why the emergence of after-hours trading became so controversial.
We call it the “war on Wall Street,” and no one knows for sure who will end up as winner. We will show you why so many professional traders have resisted after-hours trading in the past and how it is affecting the way Wall Street will do business in the future.
In Section II, what many will find to be the most useful part of the book, we reveal a number of basic strategies, what we call 1-minute strategies, geared to the retail investor who is just learning about after-hours trading. We have tried to keep the strategies short and simple. The goal is to introduce you to strategies that could increase your income and do wonders for your portfolio.
We also describe in this section the characteristics of winning traders. Although this book is geared toward after-hours trading, you can use this information to improve your performance in the regular market. We have learned from our research that the most profitable short-term traders share many of the same characteristics as profitable long-term investors.
