Toni Turner's books are not written for the content for the weight & volume. People's time are precious, specially when it comes to education for adults & trading know- how. Get to the point, never- mind the psychology. This book can be written in 30 to 50 pages. And if it was would had been good.

Great primer for novices and beginners May 29 2007
By John Blaze - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although there are plenty of reviews on Amazon to help you decide whether or not to buy the book, I wanted to offer my two cents.

As for the positive points of the book, the title is dead on: "A BEGINNERS Guide to Day Trading Online". The book is a great primer that introduces you to the world of day trading, trading jargon and terminology and, although briefly, charting and technical analysis. The book is well written and Toni Turner does a great job of explaining things in layman's terms. I personally thought the book excelled in two areas. First, the book does a good job of introducing the readers to the styles of day trading. Toni explains the time frame and investment goals of classic day trading, swing trading, and scalping. Whenever she introduces a new theory or strategy, she takes the time to show the reader how the newly introduced topic relates to the day trader, the swing trader, and the scalper. Secondly, I appreciate the fact that Toni puts together a point-by-point checklist to help the beginning trader choose a stock. The checklist is by no means perfect and you will definitely want to include/exclude certain criteria when you begin to trade, but instead of aimlessly looking through thousands as stocks after you finish the book, she gives you a good starting point.

Another positive point of the book is the fact that the author includes short quizzes at the end of each chapter to help you absorb the information just presented and a "Center Point" that features a motivational quote and couple of paragraphs of reflection. The "Center Point" motivational speech compliments the authors "Rah-Rah" Cheerleading-type tone and constant overuse of the exclamation point that other reviewers complained about. I really didn't mind the authors cheerleading and enthusiasm, but I can understand how some people were annoyed by it. I would definitely prefer a lively author who is excited about the world of trading than a dry, cold author with no personality.

As for negative factors, I think Toni Turner tends to oversimplify things a bit. You come away feeling as though you're ready to place your first trade after reading the book when you are really only beginning to scratch the surface. The book offers VERY LITTLE technical analysis. Toni never mentions key indicators such as MACD, RSI, ROC, or PSAR. I understand the book is just a primer for beginners and that the aforementioned technical indicators are not necessary for someone who is trying to decide whether or not he/she wants to trade for a living. However, if Ms. Turner is going to suggest you can begin trading after finishing the book, she should at least suggest to the reader that there are other technical indicators to be considered before entering a stock position.

Here is how you should decide if this book is for you or not:

If you are novice who is considering trading part-time or would like a solid introduction to day trading as a full-time profession, this book is for you. WORD OF CAUTION: Do not open up a brokerage account armed solely with the knowledge in this book. You will go broke quickly. I suggest you follow up this book with other books on the subject of trading (Toni gives you a listing at the end) and paper trade for a couple months before you even begin to think about trading with real money.

If you are an advanced-beginner or intermediate trader, this book is not for you. You probably already have a working knowledge of every concept Ms. Turner presents.

A Beginner's Guide to Day Trading Online March 6 2000
By M.C. - Published on
Format: Paperback
Thinking I could transfer my 20+ years of quite successful investing experience to a more active trading style, I started online trading about 8 months ago. Reading this book was like reading my own journal of the past 8 months's painful experience! Reading this book before I started may not have prevented me from making those mistakes, but it most likely would have helped me recognize them once made and stopped me from repeating them over and over, piling up ever more losses! Just as she describes, the good news is you do turn a corner to profitable trades once you learn some very basic but important lessons. This book can shorten that time for beginners.
Her section on Boot Camp is very good. Her system has rank beginners learning and up and running in 2 weeks what took me about 3-4 months to discover from everyone who would teach me.
There's also more than enough technical strategies presented which traders from beginners to more experienced ones can apply and use daily.
Her light humorous style makes this easier to read than most trading books without detracting from the serious message. If my sister or a good friend wanted to start trading, this would be the book I'd give them to read first.

How to lose money fast May 22 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's been over a year and several trading books since I first read this book. Having reflected on it and compared it to much better books, I can honestly say this book gives a poor introduction into the trading world. It does a good job at introducing trading terms and tools, but these are the least important factors beginning traders should know before they start trading. It fails to convey the overwhelming importance of a trader's psychology and strong discipline. Turner's 'you can do it, it's easy' attitude are sure to lose readers money if followed without other guidance. The patterns explained in this book are generalized, but explained in a way as though it's automatic to make money from them.
If you look to learn about trading so that you can lose money quickly, buy this book and follow its methods. If you want to take the time to learn the art of trading which includes strict discipline and an unemotional mindset, start learning with Dr. Elder's "Come into My Trading Room" or Mark Douglas' "Trading in the Zone". These books will teach you how to be successful before you lose a lot of money. I've also read Alan Farley's "The Master Swing Trader". This is an excellent book for more advanced traders who are willing to take a good amount of time to digest its content. Good Luck.

Teaches about daytrading but not how to daytrade Dec 14 2009
By Christian Farman - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been a successful position trader for few years and decided to venture into daytrading to cash in on trendless market periods. What I found out is that being a successful position trader does not necessarily mean you will be a successful daytrader. As a daytrader you have to make quick decisions and pull the trigger with little delay. This book focuses on too many technical indicators that may be useful in position trading but not of paramount importance in daytrading.In essence all they do is delay yor ability to take action thus missing your opportunity. I have finally been able to become slightly profitable using the help of a daytrader friend of mine who opened my eyes to the importance of having a thorough and deep understanding of level II. Although this book does discuss Level II, it is done in a superficial manner with little depth. It is critical to know the games that market makers and large position holders play to fool you. One common ploy used by large institutions to sell large amounts of stock is to use ECNs. The ECN will only show a small amount of shares while hiding the rest. The unsespecting daytrader wil see high volume at the bid and low ask volume and think the stock is moving higher.The exact opposite usually occurs since the ECN at the ask is only showing a small amount of shares they have to sell. While they show all the shares they are willing to buy at the bid. There are many more games played by the AXE etc and my point is unless you understand these issues being a successful daytrader will remain a difficult goal to achieve.THis book will certainly not provide this critical information

A Beginneer's Guide to Day Trading Online March 5 2000
By Lynda Herndon - Published on
Format: Paperback
I received Toni Turner's book last week and have just finished my first reading. Toni has accomplished a great reader friendly introducation to day trading stocks online. I have traded commodity futures for twenty years and am just getting my feet wet with ONLINE stock trading.
I earned my M.B.A. and have been a successful investor in stocks for over 20 years. Toni Turner's book gave me a wealth of hard earned information in a format easy to read and understand. The subtle nuances that make a big difference in money earned or lost was handled with good examples, charts and analogies for everyone to understand.
One of the outstanding characteristics of Miss Turner's book is the manner in which she makes the difficult task of technical analysis understandable to those who have little or no experience investing. It does not bore you like so many technical books, and therefore, keeps you reading instead of laying it aside.
As noted in her book, the differences between time frames in the risk and reward equation of day trading are explained compared to longer term investment instruments.
Seems to me the action of imparting understanding is accomplished quite well. I applaud this new book as a welcome addition to any library.
