Each question challenges you to focus on some essential aspect of successful trading. Answers to the questions provide detailed explanations of why some replies are right and others are wrong.

Each part includes its own rating scale, encouraging you to measure your level of competence. Now you can discover and fill in any gaps in your knowledge before risking money. Use Dr. Elder's Study Guide together with Sell and Sell Short to make the most of your time as you learn to take advantage of market opportunities.

Dr. Elder asserts that all traders should learn to short. He shows what to look for at market tops and how to jump onto a downtrend. He explains how to use important indicators of short selling activity, such as the short-interest ratio. A special chapter is dedicated to shorting non-equity instruments, such as futures, options, and forex.

    Sell & Sell Short review

    S&SS was a distinct pleasure for me to read. I have read all of Elder's works, and in many ways started my career as a trader in his footsteps with Trading for a Living in the early 90's. However, having finished S&SS, I feel, as do no doubt many people who have a similar relationship with him, that he has opened himself up to us as he never has previously. S&SS is Elder's best work to date. He is more direct, more focused in his approach and in the advice he gives. Firmer, less equivocal in his method and the tools it employs, and in his attitude to discipline and follow through. The book was a rich learning experience and pleasure to read and mark up. For beginners this is the best of Alex Elder's works with which to become initiated to his methodology. While the title focuses on selling, and the subject is indeed covered thoroughly, all of his approach is contained in S&SS. For the seasoned trader, whether a practitioner of Elder's methods or not, the refinements to his approach (inclusive of all of his work) that are presented in S&SS are well worth the time to read them. S&SS adds new and improved nuance and substance to the corpus of the Elder school.
