    Good Education at low price!!

    I have been an active trader since 2002. I am a financial junkie, and have read many books, read the journal, IBD, and other Business magazines. This is the best book to learn 'Day Trading', and 'Short Term Trading'. I consider this a 'Financial Bible'. This is all you need. Thanks Toni. I have referred this book to many of my friends.

    Tells you things not well known in Day trading

    I've been studying stock market full time from Morning to Night for 1 year and papertrading. If I haven't read this book I'd still be scratching my head trying to figure out why things happen in the market. Market makers have a major role in what happens and she explains their game to you. They do have more experience and control over the market than traders do. So either you learn or they burn you. Your choice

    How to pick hot stocks

    I have very little patience when it comes to reading badly written books. This one is very well written with solid unique points, but i feel it should cover more on how to pick hot stocks for short term profits. For those who think hot stocks is the way to go in this volatile market I recommend MomentumStockPick com

    Simple and Motivational

    This book is written by a woman who is not only a wonderful writer, but also a really upbeat person. It's fun and easy to read, and not only teaches you what you need to know, but inspires you at the same time. You could actually read this book as a 'Personal Improvement' book. So many of the points she makes also work to help you improve your life in general. I was impressed.

    Excellent read !!

    if you're a novice trader like i am this is probably the best book you can start off with. Clear explanations of all the indicators, and some common sense money management rules with a sprinkle of spiritual guidance.

    Great book for beginners

    This is THE beginner book. It's not boring and gets straight to what you need to know about the market to trade so that the reader is not bogged down with insignificant details. This book includes basic, easy to understand tactics and Turner warns readers of the biggest mistakes traders make. Readers are taught the basics of candlestick chart reading. There are also quizzes at the end of each chapter. My favorite part of the book is the center points. The center points remind us to focus in what is really important in life, not just money. A word of warning though, great as this book is, it is not a quick way to get rich. The tactics in the book are not foolproof, they are only guidelines. Even Turner herself recommends in her book to read more books, attend some lectures, do more research, and get some experience before jumping into the trading career. But still this is a great first stepping stone on your path to day-trading.

    A fantastic book!!!

    Toni Turner tells us a simplified version of (probably) everything that she knows about the art of trading on line. The book is basicaly a text book that explains all the do's, dont's, how to's and how not to's that a begining investor must know. Everything she says makes perfect scence and is so clear and easy to understand... as well as darned interesting. My favorite quote from the book is ' When Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!'. ( Mama refering to Mother Market ) In all, a damed good book and I highly recomend it!!!

    Don't forget to read this one

    This book is a definate read for beginning daytraders or investors. The book is so well written that it inspired me to read other books about investing and trading. I was totally enlightened after the read. If you are looking for an excellent book on the stock market and don't want something boring and overly technical then this is your book. This book has everything from how to read charts to what time of the day is best to trade....A real page turner. No wonder the authors name is Toni Turner.

    Absolutly wonderful Book !

    The Beginner's Guide to day trading online by Toni Turner was a great book written by an author who can write as well as trade and has suffered the pit falls of trading online. Smart,witty and informative this book takes you step by step through the trading process. Lessons in the beginner's guide range From mental discipline to Technical analysis and survival techniques. Toni prepares you for the world of trading like a field commander preparing his troops for battle. The stakes in this war of course being the dollars in your capital account and you must defend it. Your only weapon. The knowlege, experience and wisdom Toni brings to you in her book. As the CNBC motto goes Profit From It !......... I certainly will.
