I've read a lot of the 'how to' trading books aimed at the novice to intermediate level trader, including Elder's books (good but outdated), Toni Turner's books (ok but too pedantic at places), and Alan Farley's 'Master Swing Trader' (the most sophisticated but overly complicated) and this book by Carr is by far the best. 'Trend Trading for a Living' gave me exactly what I was looking for: a simple system to determine general market direction, and 10 complete, easy-to-follow, fully explained and illustrated systems for trading stocks both long and short. Does it work? Well, let's just say that his market direction system would have told me to sell my longs in early December and start shorting the market. Since January 1st I've put on 5 short positions and 3 longs, and all but one have returned over 10% each. I wish this book had come out about 2 months ago! Yes, I highly recommend this book. As he says, nothing in here is 'get rich quick', but with these systems in place and the discipline to stick to them, anyone can 'get real rich real slow'!

((One thing I forgot to mention. If you don't like the concept of Equestria girls (meaning ponies become human, and vice versa) you might as well not read this fanfiction. If you continue to read it, please no hateful comments. Ok, now, for the story you've all been waiting for....)) <p> | Abby's POV | <p> I sat on the couch, texting my friends about the episodes we were all watching. We were all agreeing on how awesome it would be to go to Equestria. I look up from my iPod to the noise of the mail truck. Sure enough, I see it through the window. Excited, I leap up and run outside. Once I reach the mailbox, and finally manage to open it, I run back inside. I look through the letters, looking at the top left hand corner, looking for the familiar logo of my school. I looked through the stack three times, and disappointed, I realized the schedules weren't here yet. However, I found a letter to me, with no return address on it. I opened it up, and curiously read. <br> "Dear Abby of the Human World, my name is Lyra Heartstrings, a pony from Equestria." I almost dropped the letter. But then I realized someone was probably pulling a prank on me. I continued reading, "As you know, I am fascinated with humans, and I learned from Twilight how to be able to switch worlds. I don't know if this will ever get through to you, but if it does, I will be at your place of residence in a couple of days. Yours truly, Lyra Heartstrings" <br>
