Review

Stock market rules have changed-and with them, so should your strategy, advises Terranova. After many years working at MBF, one of the biggest natural gas and oil trading firms in the world, and witnessing the astonishing market events of recent years, Terranova realized that the average investor needed a new plan to survive and profit in this market and that anyone prepared to do the homework and tackle the unexpected could become a better investor. While investors have been trained to look for bargains, that's not a great strategy. Blending case studies and instruction, Terranova teaches readers the basics of the new investing: keeping an investing calendar; choosing professionals for your team; avoiding the temptations of day trading; and investing in assets you believe are important. As Terranova effectively argues, the key to long-term success in any market depends on the investor's ability to recognize when the story has changed.
Publishers Weekly

One of Joe Terranova's greatest strengths is his ability to take vast amounts of complex financial data, break the data down to its moving parts, and then explain what it means in an easy-to-understand way."
Mark B. Fisher, founder/CEO MBF Clearing Corp, and author of The Logical Trader: Applying a Method to the Madness

Run, don't walk, to read "Chaminade" Joe Terranova's book, Buy High, Sell Higher: Why Buy-And-Hold Is Dead And Other Investing Lessons from CNBC's "The Liquidator".
About 10 days ago, Joe was nice enough to send me a copy, and I immersed myself in it last weekend.
In his book, Joe delivers a thoughtful approach in deciphering the reams of data and information an investor and/or trader needs to dissect and analyze in order to maximize one's decision making process.
What is great about Joe's book is that he is quite specific about rounding up and filtering out the noise. I particularly like his recommendations on how investors and traders can become more organized. As well, his timing ideas and methodology -- check out the chapter entitled "Know When to Enter and Exit the Market" -- are very valuable and pragmatic.
Joe's methodology is backed up by 18 years of hard-hitting and strong experience in managing risk and managing investment professionals at MBF Clearing and now as chief market analyst for Virtus Investment Partners.
On the back cover of Joe's book, "Fast Money's" The Divine Ms. F. (Karen Finerman) writes in her endorsement, "Confidence and perseverance -- tempered by humility and strength of character -- is Joe Terranova's winning combination." And throughout Buy High, Sell Higher, Joe's sensitivity to Mr. Market and to his associates comes through loud and clear.
When I finished Joe's book, I couldn't help but anticipate his next book on trading.
Read Buy High, Sell Higher and consider buying it as a holiday present for your friends who want to become more skilled in the markets.
Doug Kass, "The New Real Money Pro"

Joe Terranova knows what it takes to win. His research and knowledge go into every trade he makes. I can't wait for him to share his passion in his new book and to learn the secrets that Wall Street professionals don't want you to know.
Mike Bossy, National Hockey League Hall of Famer, New York Islanders

Format: Hardcover
Terranova is familiar to many as one of the financial gurus on "Fast Money," a daily post-market show that's capable of holding the viewer's attention longer than the rather loud and repetitious one that follows it. He comes off as a thoughtful, cogent contributor and is equally communicative and lucid as a writer--important, since despite appearances, most books that offer advice about money share in common the following: 1. the author's key points can be summarized in a paragraph or two; 2. after reading the first several, they begin to sound suspiciously alike. So besides pointers that might help the reader make a buck, it's important that the writer have a personal voice as well as a knack for conveying familiar ideas in fresh language. Terranova's book succeeds on both counts, as the author offers the reader the opportunity to shadow him during some of his "big money" moves and offers potentially useful concepts like having an "investment calendar" and a "winning team" to lessen the pain and increase the gain of the non-professional investor.

From listening to some of the fast talk about fast money on the show, the reader might expect the book to be focused primarily on trading with excessive attention to exotic trading approaches unlikely to be of much interest to the time-challenged, over-burdened "little money" investor. But there's useful, solid advice here even for readers who do not fancy themselves "traders" much less students of derivatives and complex leveraging plays. I've never paid much attention to a stock's "moving average," but the author explains its importance and tells you which one of many such averages is most followed by the pros.

Having written a book myself on trading, I know that most people are still looking for the book with "the big secret to trading". When they don't find it, they usually give the book a bad review. What this book is: A well written book on how Joe Invests (this book is more geared to the investor than trader). That's not to say that a trader can't get anything out of it. The book covers things like seasonality and how fund managers re-balance. Certain days of the month and year to pay attention to, etc. The way I look at it, if you can read a book and take just one thing away from it that will help you in the market, then the author did his job and it was worth the read. Joe did that and then some.

This book is a pretty good read. Nothing ground shaking but interesting concepts. Off the top of my head I recall - keep investing in stocks that are doing well, have a team as a sounding board, and keep close watch on your porfolio allocations. He does not tell enough personal stories about success or failure - i prefer Jim Cramer books. This book does not dig in very deep - high level stuff.

Format: Hardcover
I had high hopes for the book and it disappointed big time. He makes so may contradictory statements and makes trading so complicated it is impossible to do anything he says in the book. Some examples. He says not to day trade then says to put 3% stop losses on trades. This is so minute, u would be trading and losing all the time. He says only worry about 1 news event at a time and proceeds to outline dozens of news events that should effect trading. He also says not to trade on Mondays, Tuesdays or Fridays and not to trade first thing in the morning or mid day. He says the average trader does not need to spend too many hours on research and then states all the things about news events and stock performance to research before buying. There are too many too list. he also says to get a team of experts too assist in finding stocks. No one has the time or money to do all he suggests. He never develops any plan for what type of trade to make as if one would eliminate all the trading stops news etc, it would eliminate all stocks. He also suggests buying stocks crossing the 200 day moving averages. This is no sure way to pick a winner as any back testing shows. He does pick a stock he likes which is copper based. This stock has had a roller coaster ride and tanked big time since his book came out. The book is not worth a penny. Glad I got in the library.

This is an excellent book for any trader, beginner or experienced. Joe Terranova is kind enough to share his insights and market knowledge so we can all improve our investment strategies. It drives home the disciplines required to be a successful trader. Also appreciated the personal information as we all must realize key times to step back from the market. Even with years of trading experience this book taught me many improtant points that I have implemented in my trading today!

This book is much less . . . preachy than a lot of other books about trading philosophies. It is a good intermediate step between the full time day trading and the old school buy and hold style.

Also, they indicators are much clearer about what to look for in new opportunities, so hopefully it will be easier to actually follow what is suggested.

It's a pretty good read, should be worth the money.
