Praise for TREND TRADING
“Trend Trading provides a bedrock foundation for anyone who would seek to build wealth in the stock market. The author carefully explains his disciplined and methodical approach in terms that even a complete novice can understand. But the book is not just for beginners, and I would have no qualms about handing over my savings to a money manager who practices the techniques that it so meticulously describes. For that reason, I recommend it not just for fledgling investors but to any money manager or financial advisor who is looking to improve his or her performance.”
