The Day Trader’s Course: Low-Risk, High-Profit Strategies for Trading Stocks and Futures
The Day Trader’s Course is packed with basic technical skill, proven winning strategies, and essential background. Lewis Borsellino reveals when to buy and when to sell, and shows readers how to identify when “it’s over” for a particular stock, option, or future. Drawing from his considerable experience, he identifies the rules that every trader should follow.
Trading is a profession unlike any other. It requires a unique set of skills and requires discipline all its own. No matter what your background, personal or professional, when you begin trading you must start at step one.
My goal in writing this book is to give you an introduction into the discipline and techniques of trading. The lessons include the topics I feel are the most important for any trader, in any market: mental preparation, technical analysis, devising a trading plan, trade execution, and, above all, discipline.
The Day Trader’s Course contains lessons, especially of the psychological and emotional variety, as well as the techniques we use to trade in some of the most active and volatile markets in the world—namely the Standard & Poor’s (S&P) 500 and Nasdaq futures.
In Work Book (The Day Trader’s Course Workbook: Step-by-Step Exercises to Help You Master the Day Trader’s Course), we have put together a review of the mental and technical sides of trading. For the beginning trader, I believe this Workbook and The Day Trader’s Course it accompanies will serve as a good, solid introduction to the market and trading with a plan.
For those who already have been trading, this will serve as a refresher in some areas and remediation in others. Remember, no matter how long you’ve been trading—or how long you will trade—you can never stop learning. And always, always pay attention to the lessons that the market is teaching you.
