True market wisdom requires experience, patience and intelligence. Andan expert market mind is only acquired through careful analysis of successes and failures.

Trading Rules is filled with proven principles that can lead to long-term trading profits. For example, the author explains

  • why averaging your losses isn’t always the best alternative,
  • how the managementpart of the trade is where all the money is made,
  • why you should sell short as often as you go long,
  • how to keep a profit from turning into a loss, and
  • why you should trade at the market and not use .price limit orders.

Each of the 50 rules is clearly explained and illustrated with examples of what works, what doesn’t and why.
