The authors mail newsletters, built a website, and claim to 'teach' you the secrets of day trading and swing trading in their seminars, while charging thousands of dollars for these services. I'm sorry to say that the authors are some of the most conniving business men. From what I've 'heard,' the authors don't even know how to day trade, while teaching these seminars, until they were criticized by real, professional day traders with the premise, ' don't trade and you're teaching people how to trade?' Only when criticized the authors began to refine their image stating that they trade, now. The professional day traders are currently saying, 'Sure they trade...buying/selling 100 shares of WMT once a month. LOL' They are the laughing stock of the day trading industry. These authors, from what I 'heard,' are complete phonies and only out to lie, cheat, and take away your money.

I was very excited when I first saw the book. I was expecting a wealth of knowledge. Unfortunately, I was disappointed when I realized that this book was 'written by the pound'. If you enjoy spending hours reading LOTS of redundant ideas, none of which is terribly new, then go ahead and spend your money...otherwise, borrow it from someone else and skim it for the few (very) good points. Oh yes, if you are a a real wet-behind-the-ears beginner, then go ahead and buy it - if all else fails it will at least look impressive.

These guys bring an understanding of trading that is down to earth, realistic, and honest. They first train you how to think, and then how to win. Anyone who truly wants to learn how to trade this book is for you. If you want to get rich quick, and be lied too this book isn¿t for you. Serious traders only

As a full-time day trader for over 5 yrs, I am always looking to expand my knowledge base; always looking for 'continuing education'. The ideas and priciples taught by the authors in this book are invaluable. There are a lot 'day trading' books out there. Some good, many not so good. This book serves as a one stop shop for the most relevant bits of info necessary to succeed in a field, that contrary to what many authors would have you think, is very challenging. Kudos to Oliver Velez and Greg Capra for taking the time to put together such a detailed manual for the serious day trader.

Your new book, 'Tools and Tactics For The Master Trader' is one of the best things I have ever purchased in my trading career. It is the most incredible text of all times. The things that you cover in this book touch on so many problems facing traders today. I am guilty of each item that you outlined. I have spent the last two days looking around my office for the microphone that you must have hidden in here in order to be able to describe me in such detail in your book. The time and detail that you have included is a direct reflection of the dedication that you have in helping others succeed. In my case, I will never be able to properly 'Thank You' for the guidence and education that you have provided to me. I have implemented many of the stragedies that you have outlined and now I will be working on the hesitation to pull the trigger problems that I face each day. You have helped me understand where those problems are and how to work on them. My hat is off to you guys, and I wish you well in everything that you and your company does. With all my graditude, Joe
