Short Term Trading Analysis

A detailed description of various stock selection systems and trading strategies

About the Book

All our trading strategies are contrarian strategies. This is the only way to win the stock market game. In the book we will show that the classic stock market axioms are not valid for short-term trading. Let's us show these axioms.

       1. Avoid a too frequent switching.
       2. The stock market has no past.
       3. No one ever went broke taking profit.
       4. Never buy a stock after a long decline.
       5. Trend is your friend.
       6. Never guess the bottom.
       7. Never average down.
       8. Cut your losses - use stop loss orders.

Every trader knows these axioms, however the majority of traders are losing money in the stock market. Why? Because these axioms are wrong for short term-trading. In the book we use two simple rules:

     - All market axioms should be statistically proven.
     - Do not trust opinions. Trust the theory of probability.

How did we use the theory of probability to develop new trading strategies? You will know this after reading the book. We tried to simplify description of our methods to make the book as simple as possible.

In the book we describe all our secrets. You can also develop your own trading strategy based on our ideas.
