The Art of Trend Trading bucks the trend of technicality to show readers how instinct and strategy can unite to bring about consistent investment success. Rather than diving ever-deeper into the overdone world of complicated modeling and forecasting techniques, trader, CEO, and bestselling author Michael Parness explains how making intuition a part of your investment strategy tends to result in more long-term profit. Using animal spirits as a metaphor and tool, Parness helps readers understand how their natural tendencies may run counter to their strategy, and how this dichotomy may be the shackle holding them back from true market success. Readers will learn how this perspective lifted Parness from homelessness to making millions in both Bull and Bear markets, and will start developing their own market instinct as they refine and tune into their own natural intuition.

Everyone’s looking for the “ultimate” system, a way to “game the market” and uncover the “secret” to successful investing. Over the years, Parness has observed that the best traders – those who consistently make money – are the ones that use instinct and intuition, as well as strategy. This book shows you how to identify the natural trader within, and use your gut to inform an ever-evolving investment plan.
