'...teaches in a practical step-by-step manner...skilfully outlines every aspect of a practical trading plan .' (Traders, November 2010).

From the Inside Flap

Trading today's markets—including stocks, futures, or Forex—can be a challenging and difficult endeavor. But it is possible to achieve consistent success in this field, if you're prepared to learn a complete trading plan from entry to exit.

In High Probability Trading Strategies, author and well-known trading educator Robert Miner skillfully outlines every aspect of a practical trading plan—from entry to exit—that he has developed over the course of his distinguished twenty-plus-year career. The result is a complete approach to trading that will allow you to trade confidently in a variety of markets and time frames.

With this book as your guide, you'll quickly learn how to recognize high-probability trading opportunities, pinpoint exact entry and stop prices, and manage a trade until it's completely closed out. You'll discover how the four key factors of dual-time-frame-momentum, pattern, price, and time can guide you down the path to trading profits. As you become familiar with the proven strategies and techniques taught in High Probability Trading Strategies, you'll also come to understand the type of market information you can use to make specific trade decisions and how to execute those decisions from start to finish.

Miner teaches in a practical, step-by-step manner until a complete trading plan is developed. While the ideas found here are essential to trading success, the best way to learn is by example. That's why Miner has devoted an entire chapter—called "Real Traders, Real Time"—to trade examples submitted by his past students. In it, you'll see how they apply the strategies taught throughout the book to markets around the world.

A companion website completes this comprehensive learning package. It's not a word-for-word review of the material in the book, but rather an additional tool to illustrate more examples. With it, you'll learn how to put high-probability trading strategies into practice, day by day and bar by bar, for many different markets and time frames.

Written with the serious trader in mind, High Probability Trading Strategies details a practical approach to analyzing market behavior, identify-ing profitable trade setups, and executing and managing trades—from entry to exit—that will allow you to both preserve and grow your capital. If you're looking to make the most of your time in today's markets, look no further than High Probability Trading Strategies.

CONTENT
Before we get started, if you are looking for a mechanical trading system, give this book a pass.

The author presents four very useful tools for trading stocks, commodities, or currencies. These are: two time-frame momentum indicators, Elliott waves, Fibonacci with price, and Fibonacci with time. You can use these four tools as a discretionary trading system, but the Fibonacci discussion is especially valuable in and of itself. The author has been around 20 years providing trading advice - an indication of some quality.

I appreciate that the author isn't trying to hard sell his software and newsletter. You can apply the ideas in the book without buying anything more from the author! That is an honest touch that is appreciated. Still the author sells a software package that make things slightly easier, I would imagine. UPDATE: Many people comment negatively that the book is just a sales pitch for the software. Since the book discloses all the four tools, I think such a statement is untrue. However, some of the tool will require you to print out the charts and do manual calculations if you don't have his software.

STYLE
The style of the text can be annoying at times; it is repetitive and has too many comments about not-so-good advisors. (No need to mention unless the author is brave enough to name them.) It would have been good if the author told the reader how this book compares to his earlier book Dynamic Trading: Dynamic Concepts in Time, Price & Pattern Analysis With Practical Strategies for Traders & Investors.

do not think that this book will make you a more successful trader by simply following a set of hard-and-fast rules. It will give you some interesting ideas to kick around in your head and try out on your own trades. If you want to save yourself the trouble of reading the book, here are its key points, in a nutshell: 1.) Graph momentum below your stock charts and know what the Oversold/Overbought lines mean and where they are. 2.) Learn about Fibonacci Retracements and learn how to set them on your main stock chart, superimposed over your graph lines. 3.) Know how to set stops that will only drain your account up to 3% if the market heads the wrong way after your entrance point. If you master those points and tangential topics that go with them pertaining to money management and trading mindset, you will have the book pretty much down pat and be able to do your own prognosticating. Remember, though, anyone, and I mean ANYONE, can do after-the-fact "prognosticating" with historical charts in hand, and then fiddle around until a "system" is found that can fit that data. Once Miner starts getting into the charts and logic of his system, anyone who has a taken probability and statistics in school will see that a little fun is afoot. It simply is "mathematical justification voodoo" at its best. To give Miner his due, he freely admits that you will never win all of the time. He even says you will most likely lose a great deal, and gives the stats on what percentage of traders go bust after just their first six months (variously 70-95%!). I was struck, though, about half-way through the book, that all of Miner's complicated systems analysis charts, and such, exist to help sell his software and trading services, although he comes off, in so many words, like that is not the case.Read more ›

Miner is one of the few trading authors that seem to have some practical, successful trading experience. His book offers a complete trading plan from identifying the high probability trade setups for any market and any time frame right through the exit strategy. High Probability Trading Strategies is not the typical compendium of the old tried and true indicators and Fib retracements but a logical and practical approach to high probability trades with small capital exposure.

His Multiple Time Frame Momentum strategy is brilliant in its simplicity and execution. The Beyond Fib Retracements chapter shows a couple of unique strategies that help you to identify in advance which retracement level should be support or resistance. He also explains in a logical and practical way how to use simple pattern and timing strategies to identify the targets for trend reversal. Miner focuses on exit strategies as much as entry setups for a complete trading plan from entry to exit, just as the title describes.

Especially valuable is the video CD that is included with the book. I've had several trading books that included a CD but most of the CD material did not complement the book, let alone appear to be professionally produced. The 2 hour video CD with High Probability Trading Strategies is a valuable complement to the book material as Miner goes through several trade examples bar-by-bar. I think any trader will be very pleased with what they learn from High Probability Trading Strategies.

This book covers the complete trading strategies, from start to finish. It explains every aspect of a trading system in thorough detail. But if you don't know anything about charts or technical analysis, this book won't get you started. Robert runs at full pace to explain his manner of approaching trading, so don't expect to have your hand held through it. And it seems that the reader should already have or use his Dynamic Trader software with special indicators. He does not tell you how to set or create these indicators in other trading software packages. I admit, as a beginning stock trader, that his process of looking at the markets makes a lot of sense. The accompanying CD shows several live examples which really brings his trading style into focus, compared to charts in the book. This book is for the serious trader only.
