    Quick way to learn stock trading

    The title says it all! The illustrations are easy to follow and I was able to recognize chart patterns within the first hour. Perfect for the new trader interested in identifying buy or sell signals. A must have for anyone tired of seeing their portfolio drop every month. Now a way to quickly research any recommendations made by your broker. I benefited from the section on ¿Maximizing Profits', which showed me how to make money in a down market. Worth every penny I spent!!
