Trading for a Living Successful trading is based on three M's: Mind, Method, and Money. Trading for a Living helps you master all of those three areas:
* How to become a cool, calm, and collected trader
* How to profit from reading the behavior of the market crowd
* How to use a computer to find good trades
* How to develop a powerful trading system
* How to find the trades with the best odds of success
* How to find entry and exit points, set stops, and take profits
Trading for a Living helps you discipline your Mind, shows you the Methods for trading the markets, and shows you how to manage Money in your trading accounts so that no string of losses can kick you out of the game. To help you profit even more from the ideas in Trading for a Living, look for the companion volume--Study Guide for Trading for a Living. It asks over 200 multiple-choice questions, with answers and 11 rating scales for sharpening your trading skills. For example: Question Markets rise when
* there are more buyers than sellers
* buyers are more aggressive than sellers
* sellers are afraid and demand a premium
* more shares or contracts are bought than sold

* I and II
* II and III
* II and IV
* III and IV
Answer B. II and III. Every change in price reflects what happens in the battle between bulls and bears. Markets rise when bulls feel more strongly than bears. They rally when buyers are confident and sellers demand a premium for participating in the game that is going against them. There is a buyer and a seller behind every transaction. The number of stocks or futures bought and sold is equal by definition.

If you've read Magee & Edwards, congratulate yourself (not too much), then READ THIS BOOK! The focus of Trading for a Living is 3-part (as the title suggests): 1. Psychology - individual vs. group; loser vs. winner. 2. Money Management - he who loses less gains more. 3. Indicators and Systems - you may shed tears of joy at Dr. Elder's efficient explanations and abundant analogies to drive each point home. Trading for a Living is a practical, let's get down to it, who, what, when, where, why, and how book. -- One topical group not discussed is Level 2 NASDAQ and Time & Sales analysis. Any suggested readings on this would be greatly appreciated!

Sometimes I read a book and think I understand its author's ideas... but 2 weeks later only vaguely recall what i read. Dr Elder's STUDY GUIDE did a fantastic job of exposing my blind spots. Each of its questions is referenced to a specific chapter in the book. He shows you charts and puts you into trading situations, then asks, what will you do? He tells you not only what answers are correct but why they are correct and why others are wrong! The self-rating scales at the end of each chapter showed me exactly where I stood and what I needed to do next. A great follow-up to TRADING FOR A LIVING!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up! April 24 2003
In order for this book to work you need to have the initial Trading for a Living. With both books together you will begin to have all of the necessary tools to conquer the most persistent troublemaker of the market...yourself.
In 200 questions you will learn a lot about yourself, your motives, and most of all your personality. This is where Dr.Elder's background shine. In order to conquer the markets you must conquer yourself.
After being involved with futures trading for 11 years and writing several books on the subject I still find books like Dr.Elder's inspirational and mentally clarifying.

After you done with reading of the Dr. Elder's book "Trading for a Living", please, go through the exercises you'll found in his Study Guide. Without it your work will be incomplete. You'll get a better understanding of the base trading principals that make you investment and trading successful.
