Trend Commandments delivers real moneymaking insights developed and cultivated from 15 years of behind-the-scenes research--intellectual access you can’t fake. It’s the most digestible and one-of-a-kind trend trading book ever written.
Reap the spoils when domestic and global markets crash...
...and find big waves to ride even when people aren’t panicking
Don’t waste time trying to predict the future...
...learn how to think and react to what is actually happening
Decipher the ‘noise’ in a sea of competing voices...
...let go of ‘value,’ mutual funds, the Buffett legend, and Goldline (to name a few)
Listen to the market. It always tells the truth...
...and the “price” is the only true trading reality you can trust
