    Trading with Success Requires Both Clarity and Discipline

    Alexander Elder focuses most of his attention on selling and shorting equity instruments, not on buying them. The author does not provide an in-depth examination of trading in futures, options, and forex. Elder explains to his audience mostly the ins and outs of short-term trade. However, readers do not have to be short-term traders to benefit from the book under review. Elder firmly believes that successful trading results from the combination of what he calls the 3 Ms: Mind (i.e., trading psychology), Methods (i.e., indicators and tools), and Money (i.e., risk control). Elder emphasizes repeatedly the importance of keeping good records for each trade to become a successful trader. Clarity and discipline are the pillars on which successful trading rests. The author provides a template to be used for documentation purposes. In his trading examples, Elder helps his audience interpret charts and leverage mostly his favorite indicators: moving averages, envelopes, also called channels, MACD, and the Force Index. Readers who have no prior familiarity with these indicators are advised to gather first information on this subject before going through Elder's guide to trading. Elder gives his audience the opportunity to put theory into practice through a 100+ questions about 1) psychology, risk management, and record-keeping, 2) how to sell, and 3) how to sell short. Answering first the questions before turning to the answers section is key to testing one's knowledge about these topics. Finally, Elders completes his examination of the new sell and sell short by reviewing the lessons to be drawn from the current bear market. In summary, Elder gives his audience a great opportunity about how to learn to combine the 3 Ms mentioned above with success. The author reminds his audience repeatedly that only a minority of traders systematically make money in financial markets over time.
