Although selected chapters are useful for beginners, the bulk of this book is best suited for intermediate level traders.
Amazon Customer
This is the only book I read where I found some setups that can be used to successfully trade low priced stocks often below one dollar.
Irwin Sandlin
This makes it straightforward to recognize a profitable trade by comparing a trade candidate stock charts to those in the book.

Not for the beginner. The effort you put in to master the techniques described in the book will surely pay off. One of the aims of the book is to present techniques for every trading style, which aim I think is acheived.

I am a subscriber to Samir Elias's "Generate Thousands" service, and it was because of the success I have had that I bought the third edition of his first book "Generate Thousands ...". As a result of being a member I was invited to buy "Explosive Stock Trading Strategies" early and at a discount, which I did. And not because of the discount!

I completed my first reading this morning and I was hoping to be the first to submit a review but I was beaten to it.

If you have read "Generate Thousands ..." you'll recognise the writing style and the book's layout. The object of the book is to be a standalone piece, so there are two Appendices from "Generate Thousands ...", and also sections are quoted from this book when appropriate. Other than that, there is little overlap. For one thing, options are not mentioned at all.

Hopefully some of the sections that I found quite dense the first time through will reveal themselves to me the next time through. On the other hand, maybe the sections I found opaque or slow might have been due to my personality rather than the content. i.e. not suited to my trading style.

For me, the most memorable sections were Chapter 11's "How to catch a falling knife" and the fundamental analysis-based RESHE system in Chapter 12. I hope that this is not because they were the last ones I read!

I've read Dr Elias' first book, which is fantastic : there's a first part on managing long term stock positions with short options, and a second part on short-term trading. The quality of the information in this first book has encouraged me to buy this second book "Explosive Stock Trading Strategies", which is quite different from the first : no options, just stocks.

The author, who runs local trade groups, has observed that trading success comes when a person trades a system which is matched with his(her) personality.
I'll take my own example : I've tried hard to follow the "long-term" stock+option strategies described in his first book, but I just can't ! If I loose $2 on the stock, but make $0.50 on an short option, I still loose $1.50 on the global position : I can of course sell more options the following months, keep the stock, until break even and profit, BUT, it makes me feel very frustrated, and psychologically, I'm not "in the zone" anymore and make bad decisions (I think "this stock is due for a bounce and will rebound", so I stay with it... but it continues to plunge ; or I think "it will never move up" and I sell right at the bottom of the correction, etc ...). Ironically, when I "trend-trade", I'm much more relaxed and I do not take bad, hasty decisions.
So : even if a system is robust and works, if you psychologically can't trade it, you'll loose money (at least : I've lost money).

The best stock trading book there is. It changed my trading. I had purchased his book on options-also the best. I had a 20 year collection of books and workbooks on stocks and options, what I didn't sell in an auction, I gave away with the exception of John Murphy's Tecnical Analysis. Been to expensive seminars, purchased all kinds of software,subscribed to newsletters, been a member of live trading rooms, etc., etc. wasted a bunch of money. Dr. Samir Elias is not just the author of another book on the stock market; HE IS A GENIUS! Don't know Dr. Elias, never been to his website, never spoke to him, never e-mailed him or communicated with him. Just a little quy trying to make a little money. Must admit after reading 2 or 3 chapters, however, I thought I had wasted my money but after reading several more chapters, I could not put the book down and I was on vacation at a beautiful beach. I wish I had found his trading methods 20 years ago. A BIG THANKS to him---Randy

This book is packed with lots of different strategies that suits if you are a swing trader.
I have found very interesting the ascending rectangle and the pricebars section using an envelope. In each strategy there is a brief description on the mass-psychology related to the setup,an entry and exit description.
I wish the author would have backtested some of these strategies, sadly none of them had been backtested.
The problem in my opinion lies in the layout the book has been made, it is terrible, even the charts appear not in a professional way.
In short a book where you could spend lots of time trying out new and interesting strategies made with a terrible layout.
