Tom Dorsey's Trading Tips: A Playbook for Stock Market Success 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Honestly, there are not too many books in the personal investing genre that we¿d recommend for serious investment advice. But if you¿re a serious investor considering a venture into short-term trading (formerly known as day-trading), you¿ll benefit from the wisdom, mind-boggling detail and dizzying array of charts presented here. Tom Dorsey likens good investment advice to a sports playbook that a coach can follow through the twists and turns of the game. The plays and strategies that they outline will be valuable for novices, but we at getAbstract.com figure that they will challenge trading veterans as well. You need to do some homework (like following the indices and making charts) to work with this book. Dorsey and crew urge you to learn stock-market basics, govern your emotions, understand the psychology that drives investors and avoid common mistakes, like investing based on trends and hot tips. And, don¿t mind their sports jargon; it¿s just a framework to make the uninitiated feel comfortable.
