Overview

"In these historically difficult markets where quantitative easing and forced selling are the norm, Gil Morales and Chris Kacher show how to apply, with incredible success, their unique investment tools and methods in an increasingly volatile trading environment. However, beyond their 'pocket pivot point' investment method, their short-sale setups and their groundbreaking 'Dr. K market timing tool,' what is truly amazing is to learn how professional traders analyze their mistakes and correct them. It is not great tools that make great traders, it is humility and flexibility combined with decisive action that determines one's 'success or failure.'"
Pascal Willain, independent trader and inventor of volume-based indicators, author of Value in Time

"If you only read one book this year, read this one. It turns everything you know inside out and changes the way you see the things that matter. In a world full of fake promises and hype, here is something real. Morales' and Kacher's vision, passion, and dynamism is [proven]by their results. Lots of people talk, they have delivered. If you really want to succeed in a very uncertain world, read this book. It will change your success."
Dr. Michael Meegan, author of All Will Be Well

From the successes and failures of two William O'Neil insiders, Trade Like an O'Neil Disciple: How We Made 18,000% in the Stock Market is a detailed look at how to trade using William O'Neil's proven strategies, as well as what it was like working side-by-side with the Wall Street legend.

Detailing both the technical information and the trading psychology that has worked so well for them, and including a market direction timing model, Trade Like an O'Neil Disciple breaks down what every savvy money manager, trader, or investor needs to know to profit enormously in today's stock market.
