    Good Rulebook, Find a Good Playbook and You're In The Trading Business

    As a relative newcomer to trading, I find that The Electronic Day Trader does an excellent job of filling in a lot of holes in my understanding of who the players are and what the playing field looks like in the trading world, particularly the world of day trading. It was a quick read and also serves me well as a reference book for the stock market. This book emphasizes what I believe to be the most important lesson of successful trading: a strong commitment to money management principles. The best books on trading that I have read make a point of punctuating this point as a key to successful trading. I recommend this book to anyone who needs a RULEBOOK to help learn what you need to know to trade. If anyone needs a good PLAYBOOK of successful trading strategies, take a look at Cooper¿s Hit and Run Trading. It stresses a lot of momentum based strategies that are laid out in a simple, step-by-step approach. These two books have made me a happy trading camper!
