Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

In addition to being a highly successful publisher of trading services, author J. Christoph Amberger is a master swordsman—two occupations that are by no means unrelated. Trading—as distinct from investing—isn't about the long-term accumulation of equity; it's about seizing the moment to maximize gains. In trading, as in swordplay, timing—knowing when to strike and when to withdraw, when to buy and when to sell—is the single most critical element; the difference between victory and defeat, profit and loss.

Those who attain a level of mastery are able to reduce volumes of information to bare essentials and to convey those essentials with artful simplicity. Such a teacher is J. Christoph Amberger, whose gift for translating complexity to clarity has made his daily e-letter, the 247profits e-Dispatch, one of the world's most popular financial dailies. Above all, mastering the market is about results, and his team of independent financial analysts, the Taipan Group, is among the most successful in the world. And now, in Hot Trading Secrets, Amberger introduces some of their exceptionally successful trading systems.

In Hot Trading Secrets, Amberger discloses thirteen secrets of profitable trading that will enable you to prosper in any financial climate. These methods have been tested and proven over time, achieving amazing results under widely varying market conditions. Applying these powerful secrets, you too will be able to master the market for maximum profit.

In Hot Trading Secrets, Amberger reveals:

  • The predictive power of Dynamic Market Theory
  • Why you need to cast a wide net
  • How to own the future
  • "Insider information" is not illegal—and why you must use it
  • How to trade extreme volatility

Traders—from the novice to the veteran—will find Hot Trading Secrets to be both practical and profitable. With refreshing wit and accessibility, the author will acquaint you with some of the most successful ways of profiting in the market. Yes, the market is a hazardous place, but you can still amass a fast fortune if you know the secrets.

From the Back Cover

Master the market for maximum profits with HOT TRADING SECRETS

Playing the trading game takes audacious confidence, but winning takes more. It's about making chances instead of taking chances. As founder of the remarkably successful Taipan Group—a team of independent financial analysts—author J. Christoph Amberger knows: "There is always an opportunity to make exceptional stock market profits . . . as long as you know how to read the signs."

In Hot Trading Secrets, Amberger gives you a blueprint for making big money in any financial climate. He will teach you:

  • How to trade on "insider information" legally and profitably
  • The secret strategies of CBOE floor traders
  • How to profit from the "Red Zones"
  • How to become a stone-cold profit predator

In a simple step-by-step presentation, Amberger will liberate you from restrictive conventional fallacies. Using Hot Trading Secrets as your guide, you will learn to exploit volatile market events to achieve consistent profits—whether the market is up or down.


More About the Author

J. Christoph Amberger, a native of Cold-War West-Berlin, emigrated to the United States in 1988. After 20 years as a top executive in the financial publishing industry, he decided to become a criminal defense attorney in 2011.

His book "Hot Trading Secrets" (Wiley, 2005) predicted not just the 2008 financial crisis, but also the crumbling of the European Union. He says: "Out of all the books I've written, this one's probably my least favorite--as the concept of the imprint was entirely self-serving. Still, whenever I pick it up, I surprise myself at how reasonable most of the stuff is." You probably should read up on his Third Big Prediction... the implosion of the China Bubble. He may've been optimistic in his dating of it... but it's coming no less.

An avid competitive fencer, Amberger is considered one of the foremost authorities on Western swordplay. His 1998 book "The Secret History of the Sword" continues to be one of the perennial bestsellers of Western martial arts historiography.

In 2009, Amberger made his debut as a novelist with his conspiracy thriller "The Lazarus Smile".

As the head of Secret Archives Press, LLC, he has just published SMT Maxx's "Fratricide: No Good Deed", a hard-hitting, hard-boiled "noir" thriller--set among the con-men and thugs of 1924 New York.

Format: Hardcover
In a pithy discussion of different trading systems,exposing a wide range of investor styles - contrarian to momentum-crowd, the book supposedly gives you "secrets". Even a casual reader of investment books know that if it is really a money-making secret the author has found, chances are it will remain secret...Or he will share it with you bit-by-bit through his subscription services. This one is no different. While the methodologies discussed here are well narrated along with good use of examples, a reader will not be able to leverage on almost everything in this book unless the reader decides to subscribe for the paid services. Having said that, the book does provide some interesting ideas. For a broadly titled book as this one, the author does manage to get into specific tactics at times. The narration is easy going, except for the not-too-welcome self promotions on almost every page. The author certainly gets the reader's attention by claims of how his firm "knew" of the impending stock market crashes due to 9/11 attacks. Enough said. An easy read, ok addition to some trading information, not a keeper.

An overpriced book acting as a promo for expensive services. I can't believe I bought this book.

Knowing that it is published by Agora, I won't even bother reading the book even if it comes for free. Agora (including Taipan newsletter), are the guys that use sharp copy writers and fictitious names and are catering to the gullable through mass mail "exclusive" offers. Stay away from it. A good chance that this book is the worst investment you make and you can't even take a put option on it!

If you are wanting to read a sales commercial during each chapter written, then buy this book. By the time I realized what each chapter was doing (about half way through), I merely began to gleem over the remaining chapters just to verify all was indeed a sales pitch of Agora Finacial services prior to throwing the book in the trash. Now I have never thrown a book in the trash, much less ever given an online review, however the book does not explain any "how to's", other than buying into Agora's services to obtain the 'how to' intelligence - I feel it's unethical to have to 'pay' for an infomercial especially without that issue being disclosed.

Format: Hardcover
The book has two interesting chapters covering the topics of demographic trends which will impact economic and geopolitical events. These chapters are similar in nature to Harry Dent's discussion in his book The Next Great Bubble Boom. In this regard, I would recommend reading Dent's book instead.

The chapters describing the "hot trading secrets" are very qualitative in nature. Some of the "hot" secrets are obvious; others are less so. However, the book does not provide sufficient information for the reader to utilize the information in their trading activities.

Overall, this book is, in my opinion, an extended infomercial for the (very expensive) newsletters offered by the author.

In a nutshell, he is just promoting his stock advisory services. Enough information is given to get you excited, But not enough to help most, unless you subscribe to his service.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
C'mon, Chris, quoting Karim Rahemtulla as an "independent" reviewer is misleading and sleazy - Karim operates an option trading service (specializing in covered calls, iirc) that's part of the same Agora "empire" as the Taipan Group - why don't you get "independent" reviews from Porter, or Steve Sjuggerud, or Chris Mayer or Dan Denning (maybe he's the Dan who reviewed the book, or was it Dan Ferris..)? It's a touch suspicious as well that two of the four positive reviews come from Baltomore or the Maryland suburbs, Agora's and Taipan's home base - ask for some favors down at the Yacht Club, did we?

I've been a happy subscriber to Taipan for years, and I've always liked Amberger's work. Four stars for a good book, demeaned by Chris's response in this list of reviews.

I bought it, I read it. It was long on vague examples and advertising, short on content-a ripoff!!! I am really really disappointed in this book. Save your money for elsewhere!
