Description

These 101 questions, including twenty-five case studies, will challenge you to master the essential aspects of successful trading. Be sure to work through this companion volume to Entries & Exits: Visits to Sixteen Trading Rooms before you risk a dollar in the markets.

Each of the seven chapters in this Study Guide for Entries & Exits—Organization, Psychology, Markets, Trading Tactics, Money Management & Record-Keeping, Case Studies, and Traders Speak—covers a major area of trading. Every chapter includes a rating scale, allowing you to measure your competence level. Now, you can discover and fill dangerous gaps in your knowledge without risking any money.

The comments in the back of the book provide detailed explanations of the right and wrong answers to the multiple-choice questions. A large number of those questions and the case histories in this Study Guide were contributed by the traders interviewed in Entries & Exits, combining both books into a single, powerful tool for developing effective trading skills.
