From the Author
If you have a have full-time job, yet want to participate in the stock market, short-term trading may appeal to you. And, if you're a traditional buy-and-hold investor, the knowledge you find in this book will help you keep your profits, instead of gaining them . . . and then giving them back.
I wrote "A Beginner's Guide to Short-Term Trading" in the same lighthearted, reader-friendly style as my previous book, "A Beginner's Guide to Day Trading Online." Although the material is comprehensive and substantial, I firmly believe that humor, woven into a serious subject like the stock market, promotes the learning process. I also continued the "Center Points," as I've received a lot of positive feedback from people who enjoyed them in my last book.
"A Beginner's Guide to Short-Term Trading," is designed to teach you skills and strategies needed to enter the stock market on a relatively short-term basis, safely and successfully. Please educate yourself thoroughly before you jump into the market, just as you would do with any worthwhile endeavor.
My best wishes are with you, and keep those trades green! Toni Turner --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Essentially what this book amounts to is the swing-trading chapter in her daytrading book expanded with a whole lot of padding. It doesn't really offer any additional insights in my opinion. I can understand the reason for this book from a marketing perspective, but you are much better off reading her day trading book regardless of your trading time-frame.
As a beginner, it doesn't hurt to be reminded of tested approaches over and over. And where the more technical authors like John Murphy barely pay lip service to the psychological underpinnings of technical analysis, Turner makes it front and center. I appreciated this; it helps me to really understand my behavior and the behavior of others as I look at a chart.
Like another reviewer on this page, I too could have done without the cosmic meanderings at the end of each chapter. But basically I've found the book very useful, and I'll keep using it until I'm ready to move on to the next level.
She covers many strategies from start to finish and this is a well written strategy guide, with very well-planned coverage of trading essentials, plus a few advanced tips that are useful as well.
Nice work - buy this book!
If you are looking to trade then you better figure out the psychology part in your head first. If you cannot take small losses then don't try active investing - you will lose all of your money.
Everybody knows how to buy but many people freeze when it comes to selling.
