By definition, investors' horizons are long-term (years) and traders' are short-term. This book is aimed at the latter, obviously limiting the scope of its applicability. Noted investment manager Sperandeo explains how he traces stocks and commodities using trends, Dow Theory, Fed-watching, stop-losses, charts, and the panoply of technical analysis combined with his own wrinkles. His chief antagonists are program traders (who move billions likewise in the short-term) and the whims of the market. In the second half, Sperandeo explores the psychology of trading and the use and importance of emotional discipline. He also stresses personal success, not just financial, and presents a solid condensed explanation of real economics, scathingly destroying the wishful-thinking economics of academics and politicians. First half fascinating + second half instructive = a buy for business collections.- Alex Wenner, Indiana Univ. Libs., Bloomington
