Praise for The Big Trade
"It has never been more important for investorsindividual and institutional aliketo have a firm handle on the nexus between East and West. Fortunately, we have Peter Pham, whose experience allows him to transcend borders and focus on what matters most."
Joshua Morgan Brown, author of The Reformed Broker, (www.thereformedbroker.com)
"A refreshingly honest and direct account of the difficulties of trading and how to succeed. Peter Pham's genuine passion and engaging style makes it not only an easy read but a must-read 'truth' book for all traders. His insightful explanation of the challenges facing traditional technical analysis is one of the best I've read. This is a book that both new and experienced traders will come to value."
Brent Penfold, trader and advisor (www.indextrader.com.au) and author of The Universal Principles of Successful Trading
"Traders have had to battle the markets, themselves, and each other since the dawn of commerce. They now have to battle a new element: machines devoid of emotion and limited in their adaptability but capable of overwhelming people by virtue of speed and often their weight of volume. Peter Pham's refreshingly honest approach to market analysis and trading as a business is a great start for everyone in our strange new market battleground, where all of the old rules still apply and no one yet has figured out what the new hybrid of man vs. man vs. machine will look like."
Howard L. Simons, President of Simons Research
