    Good basic introduction!

    I found this very informative coming from someone completely financially illiterate! It will not help you read the financial tables so much as give you an overview on investment options from a very high level view. The title and appearance of the book might turn off some readers as to its credibility but it is a good basic reference.

    Better than many others. However...

    Day trading is a very competitive field and in order to succeed you need to FOCUS on a set of simple strategies that you can implement without hesitation. This game is all about buying and selling according to your set ups. So the clearer your set ups are, the faster you can make a profitable decision. Hopefully some sites on the web do offer more relevant and updated day trading information. One of those sites that can show you how to trade using a practical strategy is Practical Day Trading ( PracticalDayTrading.com ) They focus mainly on short term momentum stock trading strategies, that in my opinion are easier to implement than many other technical systems outhere. Day trading doesn't have to be complicated as many people perceive. But you do need to follow a well organized set of rules and tactics, that once you master them, you can aspire to replicate profitable trades with consistency.

    Focus on Picking Good Stocks to Buy

    Profitable day traders recognize that trading stocks with momentum is among the fastest & most effective ways to harvest BIG piles of gold in the stock market. <BR/><BR/>Why? Because certain stocks with momentum bring the possibility of gaining as much as 100% on the same trading day. Some may only rise 10% on a few minutes, which means that you could make a cool $1,000 on a $10,000 investment on the same day. <BR/><BR/>The problem is that if you don't know what stocks to look for and how to approach them while limiting your risk, you won't even get close to making some profits. <BR/><BR/>Fortunately some sites on the web can provide effective and priceless day trading strategies. One of those sites that can show you how to trade using simple to understand and apply trading strategies at StressFreeTraders.com
