"DiPietro gives an insight int to what it takes to become a day trader. And he should know..." (City A.M. July 27th 2009)
Reseña del editor
A realistic guide to day trading today's stock market The Truth About Day Trading Stocks is an uncompromisingly realistic look at the challenges involved in becoming a successful day trader. Based on author Josh DiPietro's ten years of experience as a day trader, this book dissects the psychological and strategic pitfalls that cause most aspiring day traders to fail. Written in an engaging and sometimes humorous tone, The Truth About Day Trading Stocks relates his own experiences, and in so doing, provides the reader with valuable lessons. This book is an antidote to trading industry hype that encourages traders to believe that trading is easily learned and is a fast path to wealth. It explains that the conventional route of attending seminars, buying software, and opening an account with a major brokerage house is a path to failure. Instead, a trader must learn hard lessons of self-discipline, consistency, and staying in the game for the long haul to have a real chance of success. The goal of this guide is to slow down the over-eager, over-optimistic amateur day trader by imparting a realistic view of the challenges of day trading and providing tools, techniques, and insights to become a successful trader without losing a huge amount of money in the process. Josh DiPietro (West Dennis, MA and New York, NY) has been day trading stocks for ten years. He operates a Web site, www.daytraderjosh.com, and provides training programs for aspiring day traders.Ver Descripción del producto

1. Redundant beyond belief. Trade 100 shares, use a pay-per-share broker...I got it...loud and clear...the first 10 times you said it.
2. When trading, percentages are what is really relevant, not absolute values. Trading 100 shares, capturing $0.25 - $0.50 in price action, etc...should all be standardized and I believe it is bad practice for even beginners to think in terms of absolute values rather than percentages.
3. Overly simplistic on virtually all of the subjects that are you need to master to become a successful trader.
1. Very easy read
2. The main points that the author is preaching are valid and important to achieving success as a day trader (just not elaborated on or quantified nearly as much as they need to be)
3. Entertaining to read about his emotional swings when he first began trading (I was glad to find out that I was not the only day trader who was seriously verbally threatening to throw his monitor out the window if the price action didn't suddenly change in my favor)
Conclusion: I would say that you could squeeze some value out of this book as long as you are just starting to learn about day trading. Other reviews say "for beginners", but let me try and attempt to further define what kind of "beginner" would actually benefit from this book to save people some time and money. Generally speaking, if you are a financial professional that has worked on a trading desk, have any progress towards well-recognized financial charters/certifications, or have been trading your own capital with any degree of success for over 6 months, I would say that you have probably already logically figured out everything that this book has to offer. On the other hand, if you are just out of college, opening your first online broker account, or have very little educational training in the field of finance, then you will learn some valuable lessons from this book.
It's not a "get-rich-quick" book. Rather it's a "Hey listen here, if you just jump in you have a good shot at bankruptcy" book.
The author is not an academic or armchair quarterback but rather he is a guy from the trenches who openly confesses to some of the stupid things he did that cost him money and he reflects upon why and how that may have happened and what he is doing now to trade better. He sets realistic expectations which is important in this day and age where people leverage 1:100 and go in with zero experience expecting to make a 5 figure profit every week from home.
I consider that to be quite honest. He doesn't portray himself as a know-it-all and he doesn't use the book as an advertising platform to push his own courses / seminars every second page. He does mention them of course and he is open about it but at the same time he makes no claims like "my way will make you rich" and "if you are serious about business, you ought to join my seminar and mine only".
This book contains none of that and I applaud the author for resisting the urge to turn his story into a vehicle for self-promotion without showing the reader any other options.
Being involved in day trading and swing trading myself I could identify with a lot of the stuff the author is writing about and I found a lot to take away from it. I will read it again in a year or so when my own trading style has matured some more.
One gripe I have with this (and many other Kindle titles) is that there are quite a number of spelling mistakes. Maybe I am old fashioned but when you publish a book you have a bit of a responsibility to make sure it's grammatically correct and there are no spelling mistakes.
I love Josh's approach, into which he gives some further insight in this book. Mind you, he doesn't entirely reveal his trading method - For that you'll need to partake of his mentorship program. However, he does reveal enough to let you decide whether his approach matches your trading style.
Josh has a trading philosophy and approach that has always been something I've been seeking, but could never quite find until now. He likes to severely limit risk such that you really shouldn't blow out your trading account. In fact, I'd go so far to say that if you follow the method you shouldn't really have a losing day. But to all those who find that alluring, be aware that the trade-off is a limit to the upside. For example you'll probably not ever make $4000 in a day either.
His approach matches my ideal trading style perfectly.
