Meet the Author

THOMAS L. BUSBY, a twenty-five-year veteran of the market, began his trading career with Merrill Lynch while earning a law degree. After training in New York, he earned his brokerage license and a license to trade futures, and enjoyed remarkable success. But on October 19, 1987, the market crashed, and with it his career and—worst of all—his self-confidence. After several years of struggle, he reappraised all that he had learned, ultimately devising an innovative short-term trading strategy focused on risk management. Applying this new method, he achieved phenomenal results. In 1996 he founded the Day Trading Institute, now one of the world's most successful trading schools. Mr. Busby is a member of both the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade.

PATSY BUSBY DOW is a former educator, an attorney, and a trader. As Tom Busby's first cousin, she heard him talk about the markets and his trading experiences. Her fascination with his stories and market savvy led her to study his trading methods. She is currently employed by the Day Trading Institute as a staff writer.

    Dont Fantasize with Your Trades

    Beginner traders often fantasize or wonder about how some people are able to achieve tremendous profits by trading stocks just a few hours on a daily or weekly basis.<BR/><BR/>So going beyond the hype & the bells and whistles that a lot of the so called "trading gurus" like to invoke, the real "secrets" of the stock market game are enclosed within the trading set ups and market signals you rely on to decide how to CHOOSE stocks, as well as WHEN to BUY & when to SELL them, or even when to SHORT SELL those that are poised for a profitable fall.<BR/><BR/>So the clearer your set ups are, the faster you can spot a potentially profitable trading scenario and ACT ON IT reducing your risk.<BR/><BR/>Fortunately some sites on the web do offer more effective and updated day trading methodologies. One of those sites that can show you how to take advantage of certain stocks on positive and negative momentum as well is StressFreeTraders.com <BR/><BR/>They focus on momentum stock trading strategies, that are practical and easier to apply than many other technical systems out there.

    A must read for all traders.

    There is only one word that describes this book....Awesome! Tom's global approach to the markets is one that everyone should employ in their trading. Whether you are just beginning your trading career or you are a long time trader, this book should be required reading. It is extremely well written and easy to understand. This book is one of the best trading books ever written. Destined to be a classic!
