From the Author
Hi Everyone! "A Beginner's Guide to Short-term Trading" is written to those of you who want to profit by grabbing the "sweet spots" out of a stock's uptrend or downtrend. The book explains two styles of trading: swing trading and position trading. When you place a swing trade, you buy a stock with the intent of taking gains in 2 - 5 days. When you enter a position trade, you typically buy a stock breaking out of a base into an uptrend. You hold that position as long as the stock rises in that uptrend, approximately 3 - 6 weeks.
If you have a have full-time job, yet want to participate in the stock market, short-term trading may appeal to you. And, if you're a traditional buy-and-hold investor, the knowledge you find in this book will help you keep your profits, instead of gaining them . . . and then giving them back.
I wrote "A Beginner's Guide to Short-Term Trading" in the same lighthearted, reader-friendly style as my previous book, "A Beginner's Guide to Day Trading Online." Although the material is comprehensive and substantial, I firmly believe that humor, woven into a serious subject like the stock market, promotes the learning process. I also continued the "Center Points," as I've received a lot of positive feedback from people who enjoyed them in my last book.
"A Beginner's Guide to Short-Term Trading," is designed to teach you skills and strategies needed to enter the stock market on a relatively short-term basis, safely and successfully. Please educate yourself thoroughly before you jump into the market, just as you would do with any worthwhile endeavor.
My best wishes are with you, and keep those trades green! Toni Turner --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

If you are a beginner trader who wants a good foundation, this is the book to get. Ms. Turner's discussions are methodical and inclusive. Plus it is easy to read and has humor. Obviously she is an good teacher. The amount of topics covered for the price is a bargain.
If you already read her first book, it's up to you. Most of the concepts are the same. But there are few extra pointers, and it doesn't hurt to go over all concepts (for a beginner like myself) since there is a lot covered in the book.
My only gripe is that the new money management chapter was a bit under emphasized. I feel this topic is very important to the longevity of traders. But at least she covers the topic.
I have carefully watched our retirement fund investments for years. I have been a self directed investor since early 2008. I have an investment blog site open to a circle of friends who are concerned about their investments. I watch and am well informed about the market. My investment strategies improved significantly as a direct result of reading this book
I'm anxious to see what lies ahead in the rest of the chapters to see what Toni has to teach me. She's helped me to pay more attention to 1,2 and 3 candlestick patterns: something that I use to take for granted and really didn't bother with.
I recommend this book to any new traders out there, or those that want to learn as well as those that want a refresher. Toni makes a great teacher, and I hope that I have the privilege to attent one of Toni's lectures sometime in 2002.
By the way, Toni, thank you for all the private messages that I had sent you in your chat room when I had questions and for all the emails that you had returned when I had even more questions. I'm sending you chocolate this year as a Christmas present, and oh, I still own PFE.
What I have read so far has helped me look back at my own trading, where I went wrong, such as going against the over all market and not paying attention to 1,2, and 3 candlestick patterns that could have foretold of possible reversals.
Toni has a great sense of humor that makes anyone who is interested in short term trading ( swing trading ) want to learn and breaks it down so that even a novice can understand whats going on.
Thanks Toni for all the private messages that I sent to you in the chat room when I had questions about trading when I felt to embarrassed to ask them in the open room, and thanks for all the emails that you replied to when I had even more questions about trading. And, by the way, I still own PFE.
She does mix in humor when she speaks, which I find refreshing in the stoic financial environment.
In her books, which are based on trading fundamentals, she writes like she speaks. I thought I knew the basics, but now I realize I didn't. The text is well-organized and the reader's knowledge is built step-by-step. Her ability to take complicated material and make it easy to understand is fantastic. I've learned a ton about reading charts, and how to find good setups.
For the price, this book is a gem. It's definitely a book every trader should have in his or her library.
