This book gives a beginners overview of IBD's investing system, but William O'Neil's How to Make Money in Stocks is the bible if you really want to get serious about this stuff. Amy Smith works for IBD and at times the book reads like a plug for her company. I liked the personal success stories and annotated charts - but she makes it all seem so easy. It would have been instructional to have heard more about the mistakes I'm sure all of the portrayed investors had made.

I have to criticize Amy Smith; on page 6 she shows a 2008 - 2012 chart of market prices that is labeled with arrows showing IBD's Market Direction Change calls (i.e. Market in Confirmed Uptrend and Market in Correction). The chart shows only seven such calls during this four-year period. In fact, there were no less than 61 Confirmed Uptrend and Correction calls made by IBD during the October 2008 through September 2012 period she shows. She conveniently selected her seven market direction change indications to show at the start of major long-term swings in the market - giving the impression that IBD's market direction calls are infrequent and always right. The truth is that their market direction calls can be very frequent and not always right, sometimes reversing a few days later. It can keep you busy hopping in and out of the market. This is just one aspect of IBD's system that make it much more complicated than what is portrayed in this book. Amy's deception, along with typos in this book, make me give it three stars.

I really enjoyed this book because it shows real life examples of investors and traders who made huge gains following the principles and strategies of William O'Neil's book "How to make money in stocks" and Investor's Business Daily. Somewhat like the "Market Wizards" series from Jack Schwager, author Amy Smith distills the principles from successful Can Slim practitioners. The book also has charts showing exact buy and sell points that the successful traders made and the specific patterns that caused them to buy whether it was a stock breaking out of a cup with handle pattern or on a breakaway gap up after earnings. Also you will see the stock charts where these investors held a stock for long periods of time and where they added to their position and how they sold to finally lock in profits on either climax top out runs or if the stock broke under the 50 day on volume.

This is a gem of a book, showing how real everyday people changed their lives through the teachings of William J. O'Neil and Investor's Business Daily. Many held stocks for 25% to 100% returns and more. Many made six figure returns and even became millionaires trading the right stocks in a real bull market.

The key to the system is buying the stocks in the companies that are changing the world at the right time out of of the right base in a bull market in an up trend.

Most have studied the rules, principles, and concepts in IBD and "How to make money in stocks" this book shows the art of putting it all together for great investment returns out of the mouths of the people who already did.

This is a great read for anyone who reads IBD. Amy Smith lays out the basics of the CANSLIM system. She also includes information about traders who have been successful using this system. She gives a little background on each trader and includes some of their tips. Some of these traders (David Ryan, Kevin Marder, Charles Harris, Mike Webster) have been extremely successful. I found this book to be a nice refresher and I did pick up a few tips. For only $10, I think it is definitely worth the time and money.

IBD keeps talking of a super cycle . Is it a super cycle or super bubble. Feds are pumping 85 billions every month to buy back mortgage and bonds. they are flooding the emerging market with low interest dollar. I can see a super bubble being formed now similar to 1999 the smart guys will make money thats what the game is all about . below i present a case of buy low sell high take profit every 3 pc and compound it up, please dont keep it in a buy and forget syndrome we never know when the bubble will burst but it will for sure if the money keeps getting printed
The only thing which works in the market is buy low and sell high. IBD leaderboard does a great job in identifying those great stocks. I missed out Nu Skin when it broke out after its quarterly results. I waited for the next opportunity which gcame when the NUS broke out at 90.17 i bought and sold it at 94.52 and then bought again at 92.50 and sold it at 94.75 after the fed announcement and bought some more at 94.44. One thing ibd or cbd or lbd doesnt teach u is buy low and sell high and rebuy again. Over a period of time this adds to ur confidence your profit margin and most importantly ur knowledge base. Here are some dangerous points about IBD
1. IBD says stocks once fallen never goes up. What happened to netflix it went from 300 dollars to 60 to go back to 300 dollars.
2. Late stage bases dont work. Oh really priceline , visa and stratasys are all in late stage bases they are all working fine.
3. Composite rating and rs line matter and so does new high . Oh really cree was at 73 dollars and one of the leadership board member when it crashed 20 percent after the earning.
4. Always buy on the gap up. really what did trip advisor do it gapped up only to go up t0 80 dollars and come back.
