Publisher's Summary

Revealing the tricks leading to success that today's market wizards keep up their sleeves, The Little Book of Trading is the resource you need to get all markets working for you again.
Recent events have left the average individual investor extremely dubious about playing the markets. But just because some unprepared individuals have paid for their mistakes is no reason to stay away from taking advantage of trending opportunities that, with a little careful planning, can yield exceptional results.
Market fluctuation is nothing new, but there is a set of rules and philosophies you can rely on to get the market back on your side, regardless of whether times are good or bad. Drawing on author Michael Covel's own extensive experience in the trading world, as well as tips and insights gathered from some of the world's most successful traders, this book identifies the tools, concepts, psychologies, and philosophies that will keep your money growing—and safe—even when the next bubble bursts or the next crisis hits.
With each chapter featuring easy-to-understand advice from a top trader or trading firm that has won by beating mutual-fund performance, this Little Book prepares the cautious, would-be investor to make money like an old hand and presents a revolutionary new argument: that mutual funds, long the investment vehicle of choice for people looking for security in retirement, are no longer to be relied on.
With everything you need to grab all markets by the horns, this book provides a comprehensive overview of active investing strategies and risk-management techniques that you can easily use to your best advantage.

Where does The Little Book of Trading rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've listened to this book many times and have the hardcover version as well. It's packed with lots of trend trader's history and stories.

What other book might you compare The Little Book of Trading to and why?

It's closest to The Speculators but goes specifically into trend trading.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

There are lots of successful trend traders out there still making money to this day. All using mechanical or mostly mechanical systems.

Any additional comments?

It's interesting Covel never talks about details of actually trend trading. He's very general. But the methods for getting in and out of trades are so simple they're almost not worth getting into anyways. The idea of jumping on the big wave and riding it is a huge concept and will take a trader far. I had to read the turtle trader books to see the specific trend trading method details.
