I am the author of STOCK SPLIT SECRETS, and earn my living in the stock market. I have a degree in fundamentals, and I learned more from Doug in this book than four years of college! Fundamentals are critical to picking better candidates, and Doug holds your hand in this easy to understand and critical knowledge if you dare trade! I highly recommend you buy this and read it before you place another trade...it is that important! As Doug says, it doesn't matter when you buy if what you buy is no good!

There is a great deal of information that you have to know to be a successful trader and investor in the stock market. Doug Sutton is an extremely successful trader and an excellent teacher and brings all the important basic information together in an easy to understand format about how to research stocks and equity options and make successful trades. This includes detailed explanations of the important fundamentals of a stock and what they mean, a good discussion of the technical indicators, cycles of stocks, a discussion of sectors and trading on news about a stock including what news is important and the timing of the news. Also, he tells you how to find a good broker and the role of the market makers. He thorougly discusses Covered Calls, Spreads and Naked Puts giving step by step reasons and rules for entering these trades. He tells you how to "stop the bleeding" when the trade goes against you. Focusing your trading activities and balancing your portfolio and trades is a major part of his book. There are many other topics discussed in his book, and I have only hit the highlights. I have read many books on trading, and this one is definitely a must for the beginning trader and the not so novice trader who wants to increase his knowledge and perfect his trading style and skills.
