A brand new collection of knowledge about today’s radically new market dynamics… 2 indispensable traders’ guides, now in a convenient e-format, at a great price!
2 indispensable books deliver profound insights into today’s markets — and translate deep knowledge into outsized profits!
Today’s markets are radically different — and you can’t profit unless you understand how they’ve changed. Now, two breakthrough books give you powerful market insights you won’t find anywhere else — insights honed to reflect new realities, and deliver massive new profits. First, in The Playbook, Mike Bellafiore offers a complete course in becoming a truly great trader, whether you want to trade on your own or for someone else’s firm. Using the same high-intensity “boot camp” approach he uses to teach his own firm’s new traders, Bellafiore walks through actual trades, explains what the traders were trying to do, and offering brutally tough expert critiques. Trade by trade, he reveals how professional traders must think in order to succeed “under fire,” how they assess their own performance, and how they work relentlessly to improve. Using concrete, actionable setups drawn from his extensive experience, he illuminates support plays, bull-and-bear flags, opening drives, important intraday levels, bounce and fade trades, pullbacks, scalps, technical opportunities, consolidation, relative strength, market trades, and more. He also presents indispensable insights on psychology and trader development, based on his work with hundreds of traders on a major commodity exchange and an elite prop firm’s trading desk. Then, in Shock Markets, Robert I. Webb and Alexander Webb show you exactly how to transform crises into profits. They offer meticulous breakdowns of recent crises, revealing how these events impacted both individual stocks and overall markets, and helping you create detailed game plans for profiting from future shocks. They answer crucial questions like: What moves stock prices? What moves the overall market? How can you profit from catalysts that precipitate sudden sharp stock price movements? From regulatory decisions to macroeconomic reports, seemingly remote factors can have a huge, sudden impact on stocks. Shock Markets illuminates these catalysts, and demonstrates their shifting behavior during fads, fashions, bubbles, crashes, and market crises. The focus is completely practical: helping savvy traders uncover profit where others find only peril.
