"Master Traders provides invaluable market education and wisdom from those who have distinguished themselves, not only by their track records in the market, but also for their risk and money management expertise. Strikingly, readers will find that these Masters use the basic understanding of human nature to achieve trading success and know how to achieve simplicity by focusing on the essence of opportunity."
—Mario Alberico, Partner, Financial Services Industry, Accenture, LLP and former senior vice president of electronic trading and market data, Chicago Mercantile Exchange

—John Bollinger, CFA, CMT, BollingerBands.com

"A straightforward, down-to-earth guide to using technical analysis, tips from the master traders, and excellent options information for successful trading. In my opinion, a manual every investor can profit from."
