Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

When popular market guru Larry Williams first presented his Long-Term Secrets to Short-Term Trading to the world in 1999, it was primarily to an audience of committed traders. In the years that have passed, things have changed radically and now everyone is in on the act, enjoying the thrill of the promise of a better life through successful, profitable short-term trading.

Now Williams is back with a fully revised and updated edition of his bestselling book, designed to help a whole new generation of hopeful investors understand the trading markets and get the most out of them. While the stakes in short-term trading are high, the benefits to be reaped are unprecedented, and Williams outlines the blueprint necessary for sound and profitable trading, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages so that you, too, can come out on top.

Presenting years of genuinely insightful market wisdom on topics ranging from speculation and volatility breakouts to profit patterns, Williams expertly explains the fundamentals of entering—and succeeding in—the trading world, including how the market moves, the most dominant cycles, when to exit a trade, and how to hold on to winning stocks. Including in-depth analysis of the most effective short-term trading strategies, as well as Williams' own proven technical indicators, the book is your one-stop resource for getting started in the short-term trading market right away.

From the Back Cover

Praise for the First Edition:

"Larry is the only person I know who can mix systems and rules with confessions of his soul. This book should have universal appeal to not only the trading world but to all who apply themselves to the laws of the universe. This is a study of the self, the markets, and the interfacing of the two."
—LINDA RASCHKE, President, LBR Group, Inc., CTA

"Larry Williams' contributions to the study of technical analysis are well documented and indisputable. I have learned more from Larry than all other traders combined. His techniques are original, clever, and fresh. The depth and breadth of his knowledge is mind-boggling. I highly recommend it."
—TOM DeMARK, author of New Market Timing Techniques and The New Science of Technical Analysis

"Having known Larry for 25 years, I can truly say that this is his 'magnum opus'; the culmination of a brilliant career; must reading for anyone who trades futures with success as their goal!"
—JAKE BERNSTEIN, President, MBH Commodity Advisors,Northbrook, Illinois

More About the Author

A welcome to my readers...

First and foremost I hope you are still finding value in my writings and want to thank you for reading. The royalties go to support the Max Wales scholarship at the University of Oregon. Max was the best professor I had...and this is just one way I have chosen to acknowledge him. The scholarship is to the School of Journalism so if any of you have kids going there let me know. Go Ducks!

I have a new book out, "confessions of a tax rebel" about my 12 year battle with the IRS. This certainly was the most arduous chapter in my life so far. The battle as well as how and why I got into it is fully covered in the book. It is kind of Indiana Jones meets the Department of Justice...the culmination was trial last year that ended---favorably---on the third day when all charges were dropped.

Wiley wanted an update to my 1998 book, "Long Term Secrets of Short Term Trading", that project was just completed and the new edition shud be out soon.

Lots of market stuff on my web page Ireallytrade.com and I will check in here from time to time

best wishes to all


Larry

This book helps put front and center concepts, such as the importance of back testing and identifies certain input variables that in themselves lead to different outcomes. Final outcomes to profit, loss, drawdowns, turnover etc. Its not so much that i didn't already know about these variables or personally will be using this kind of complicated analysis to enter, exit and hold positions, but the ideas in themselves gained a sense of importance simply from being included in the book. Mr. Williams' writing about the concepts creates, at least for me, a motivating factor to think about their existence and application. Refer to the table of contents to see which concepts. I am half way done on the book, maybe i write a follow up review when i am done. But for now, so far so good. Its an expensive book but i would buy it again. Make sure to choose the digital edition so you can highlight sections and take notes while you read. I hope this review is helpful.

This is a good book which lays out ways of thinking about markets. I dont expect him to give out systems that work for the price of a book. The section on position sizing is excellent and worth the price of the book in my opinion. Overall an excellent straightforward book that lays out interesting ways of looking at and thinking About markets.

This book is really good, has many interesting ideas. But it is not instant guide how to become a millionaire. You have to use your own brain and ideas how to combine parts to make your own trading plan.

a little bit tough for me this level of English, there is a lot of information about trading commodities, I prefer stocks, good things are market experience gathered over a long period.
