Praise for Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom:
"While I can't promise you financial freedom, I can promise you a book filled with sound trading advice and lots of ideas you can use to develop your own trading methodology. And, if you don't think that's enough, then you really need this book."Jack Schwager, author of Market Wizards and The New Market Wizards
"Van's book gets directly to the heart of what it takes to be a successful trader. It's the best book I've read on trading successfully; not fluff or hype like so many others."Tom Basso, President, Trendstat Capital Management, Inc.
"I've read hundreds of books about trading and this is one of the three best EVER WRITTEN. It's straightforward and to the point. Van clearly cuts through the appeal to wishful thinking, instead stressing psychological preparedness, expectancy, and money management. Moreover, he shows clear methods, with simple entry techniques, to push your equity to the moon. It's a great book!"Rolf Sigrist, President, Sigrist AG
