Book Description




You don’t have to be a professional trader to win big in the stock market. That’s what Anne-Marie Baiynd learned when she changed her career from neuroscience researcher to full-time momentum trader. Now, with her popular website and this brilliant new book, she teaches other traders how to master the market using her proven combination of analytics and psychology. The Trading Book shows you how to:

  • Master the power of technical trading
  • Increase profits using probabilities and pattern recognition
  • Focus on precision trading for consistent results
  • Discover the benefits of waves and fibs
  • Embrace the habits of highly effective traders

This one-of-a-kind guide goes beyond the numbers and statistics to show you the complex psychology behind the trades—from the greatest gains to the hardest losses. You’ll discover how other traders deal with making counterintuitive decisions; how to use technical indicators to identify the momentum and direction of the markets; and how to achieve your long-term financial goals through discipline, dedication, and endurance.

Filled with insightful case studies, interviews, exercises, and guidelines for keeping a personal trading journal, this is more than a crash course for beginners or an industry guide for experts. This is the book on trading.

Praise for The Trading Book:

“Anne-Marie is an amazing trader who loves to share ideas. She knows it makes her smarter and so sharing is not really giving away anything. Anne Marie can explain complex trading ideas in a digestible manner, and any level of trader or investor will benefit from this book.”
—Howard Lindzon, cofounder and CEO of StockTwits and author of The StockTwits Edge

The Trading Book does an outstanding job of offering step-by step explanations of trading strategies and methods. Anyone looking for a clear path to profits in the markets will find the pre-trade checklist especially helpful for staying disciplined during the trading day. The lessons on reading stock charts are some of the best I’ve seen and worth reading multiple times.”
—Tim Bourquin,

“This excellent book balances trading wisdom, psychology, common sense, and valuable strategies that you can put to work immediately. I think that the ‘woman’s perspective’ really adds something that most trading books are missing. Read this book; trust me!”
—Brian Shannon, author of Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes and President of

1.0 out of 5 stars A Complete Trading Book? October 5, 2011
By Richard
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A complete trading book? You must be kidding. In a nutshell, she advises to use an ema and simple moving average crossover system (with some fibonnaci analysis).That's it folks. Do not waste your time or money. I just regret I cannot get a refund because I purchased it on Kindle. It is outright dishonest for her friends/colleagues to write such raving reviews. Out of the hundreds of trading books I have read (and I mean hundreds)this rates as a top 10 stinker.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book is a winner August 11, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I wish this book was written and I read it when I started trading in 2007. It would of saved me money. In the book Ann MArie shows you her day trading system and gives you psychological insights that are needed to become a successful Day Trader. If you read this book and study her system which is based upon a momentum style trading system using technical indicators and Fibonocci retracement numbers you have a chance of becoming a successful day trader. I say this because understanding the system and training your mind to day trade is two different things. However it can be done with practice and persistence . This is a book which I will read multiple times because it's information needs to be committed to memory and practiced so that responses to trading are second nature.. Anyone who has day traded knows that Trading stocks is very complex. In the book Ann MArie breaks down the complexities and shows her system in simple useable form. Diagrams are also included for visual aids. Now, I have been using this system with great success and I am constantly improving as time goes by. Michael Jordan once said that there are those that want things, there are those that wish for things and then there are those that make things happen. To be successful in day trading you have to make it happen. Read this book, study it. Then practice it using a simulated trading account. Then trade the system using only small share sizes in the beginning. Your success will depend upon you making it happen. Good Luck

5.0 out of 5 stars Personal and Compelling - Can it make me better? November 27, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I came to know Anne-Marie (AM) from an educational webinar. I knew right away she was not the typical voice that I've come to expect in stock market education. She was unique, in a good way. That eventually led to me participating daily in her trading room ... Easily the best monthly investment that I've made.

I was reluctant to buy the book since I figured I had already heard it via the room. Incorrect! The book explores personal aspects of AM's journey that made it much more interesting and engaging than your standard flavor. I could relate to it on many levels. You never have to read AM's mind - I respect that.

But ultimately, besides being an enjoyable read, I judge a book like this the same way I judge everything in this field: Does it make me a better trader? Without question, the honest answer is YES! For instance, learning to stay in a trade that's not broken did some nice things to my account balance last week.

If you're serious about trading, and want to hear what you need to hear instead of only what you'd like to hear, you can't go wrong learning from AM's experience and exploring her system and methods. I've had many things to be thankful for in 2011, and discovering Anne-Marie is one of them. Thanks AM - You rock!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice little trading book August 13, 2011
By bob-o
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What I liked about this trading book was the honesty to the author. Trading is not a way to get rich quick. It was hard work and can be psychologically demanding - especially when your trades go against you. I found the book engaging and easy to read and it was not trying to sell me on any particular system or strategy, rather, give me the tools to develop and critically analyze any strategy..

I am happy with this purchase..

5.0 out of 5 stars Has what you want - and need - in a book on stock trading November 12, 2011
Equities trading is a complex subject. There are as many approaches to the game of making money on investments as there are people trying to do it. The Trading Book looks at the overall picture and delivers a lot of useful information on different strategies in a clear, concise, useful manner. If you are a trader, or think you want to become one, this book covers everything from basic chart reading to highly advanced trend analysis. If you always wondered how a Fibonacci sequence applies to stock trading, or wanted to know how candlestick charts are used, or what a Bollinger band signifies, Ms. Baiynd has you covered. And after you've mastered the "hard" trading aspects, you can tackle the "soft" aspects, like overcoming psychological shortcomings, keeping a trade journal to analyze your performance, and when to trade (or not) based on nothing more than your base emotions. The technical depth of this book can be daunting at times, even when dealing with the "soft" aspects, but Ms. Baiynd helps to soften the blow with plenty of detailed explanatory charts and a down to earth sense of humor. For myself, I think this book gets a little too detailed at times, especially when she starts talking about interval trades and short trades, but it is easy enough to skim those sections, glean a few pertinent points, then move on to the sections of more use and interest. If you are an incredibly experienced trader or some kind of mathematician, this book will be a breeze, but I expect the majority of readers will have to take the tougher sections much slower in order to get maximum benefit and use from the information. (Even at that, I think most readers will need multiple readings and frequent referencing to insure complete understanding of all the material.) This book is highly useful, filled with great lessons and insight, served with a healthy dose of buoyant enthusiasm and positive encouragement. The Trading Book is a clear winner for beginners and experts alike.
