Many blog readers have purchased and read my newly published book - Trading the Markets. The book is published by Vision Books. This post answers a few points raised by readers, and, some points which I think may be worth explaining.
1. Cost. The publishers determine the cost of the book. As author, I have no voice in this decision.
2. Reason for writing this book. Believe me, earning money is NOT the reason for writing this book. The effort required to create any book is far more than the monetary rewards from it. I found this out when I started writing. The ONLY reason to write such books is to share my thoughts and ideas with readers. This applies to most trading books written.
3. What will the book give to you, dear reader? The purpose of this book was to share real life trading experiences. It is great fun to analyze and write after the event. But, I write a newsletter every evening, talking about tomorrow. That is much more difficult.
4. How should you read the book? I suggest that you read the book from start to finish just as you would read a novel - lightly, without stress. Then you open any chapter / page and read a few pages. You will slowly understand the basic concepts of trading which I use, and, which should help you in understanding the markets.
