Book Description

A stop order is an essential tool used for money management and risk limitation, but for many investors and traders it is not terribly well understood.Do you know how to apply stop orders effectively at entry, and maintain them properly until exit, so as to buy low and sell high, or buy high and sell higher?
Do you know how to limit your downside risk by combining stop orders with effective position sizing?What will you do if the market gaps and you get stopped out? This book provides the answers.
The author begins by presenting a thorough survey of the various stops available, including buy and sell stop orders and trailing stop orders. This provides a vital introduction for beginners, and a handy reference guide for those more experienced.
Having described these tools, Stop Ordersthen moves on to examine their practical applications by explaining how to use the different stop order techniques when making your trades in the markets. The book is illustrated throughout with charts for stock indices, individual stocks, commodities and foreign exchange currency pairs to provide a range of real-life examples.
This book covers everything you need to know about stop orders and how to make them work for you. Whether you are a trader, an investor, or a spread bettor, you should regard the stop order as essential in helping you lock in your profits and succeed in the markets.

4.0 out of 5 stars well defined scope and perfectly clear March 24, 2010
By R. Ball
The author takes pains to ensure that a small number of very clearly defined concepts are correctly understood. And these concepts are well chosen - if a trader takes the trouble to read this book carefully, their trading will be safer, more responsive and more consistent for it. A modest ambition for a book, maybe, but none the worse for that. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A complementary tool for the serious traders February 6, 2012
By Yoram
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have bought this book after trying to dig out information on refining my stop placement. The book covers the different stop choices when placing a trade and has some interesting strategies on using stops as a method for entering a trade as well as exiting it. It does it in simple language that can be understood easily. If you are a serious trader I recommend having this book in your arsenal.
