From the Inside Flap
Every day, millions of ordinary people around the world wake up, turn on their computers, and try to make a living by trading the financial markets. Some are successful, some fail, but the possibility of hitting it big attracts many to the business.
As currency strategists and traders, authors Kathy Lien and Boris Schlossberg have been active in the markets for more than a decade, meeting many successful individual traders along the way.
In Millionaire Traders, Lien and Schlossberg interview twelve ordinary individuals who have transformed themselves into extraordinary traders. These people aren't hedge fund managers or employees of large money center banks with billions at their disposal, but regular folks who started with as little as $1,000 and turned those modest initial investments into six- to seven-figure fortunes.
The traders you'll encounter come from all walks of life, live around the world, and trade a variety of electronic markets. Some focus on equities and options, while others deal in futures or foreign exchange. Each has a very different style of tradingmany that are even in direct conflict with each otherbut all share the common traits of discipline, persistence, and the willingness to always cut losses.
Some of the individuals who share their experiences in the art of trading include:
Dana "Dan" Allen: the man who buys crashes and thrives on making bids when most other market participants are running for the exits
Chuck Hayes: who breaks many of the sacrosanct rules of trading yet thrives in the chaotic world of e-mini stock index futures, where the difference between fortune and failure can be measured in seconds
Indi Jones (this is an alias): who trades options for volatility as well as directionality, using sentiment and psychology to select his winning contrarian ideas
Roland Campbell: who likes to trade news flow, but only the news that catches the market off guard
While none of the traders highlighted throughout this book were successful from the start, all learned from their early failures and used those experiences to improve performance. Now, with Millionaire Traders, they'll show you how to make serious money in today's financial marketswhether it be through stocks, futures, or forex.

The authors do a great job of capturing the "essence of a winning traders' approach" in this important book, and the variety of traders (and their stories) makes for a fascinating read, complete with behind the scenes details of what makes for a winning trader.
Having trained thousands of traders myself, I can safely say that this book can make a *huge* impact in the trading approach of both new and seasoned traders, because it shares the important insights of trading attitudes, trading technicals, and perceptions for how to manage both winning trades and stops, in a comprehensive "must read" book for all types of traders.
The authors themselves are noted experts and capably lead the reader through the different, often fascinating, looks into a wide variety of trading scenarios that are essential perspectives for all traders to gain.
Superb job, Kathy and Boris - highly recommended book.
Ken Calhoun, Pres
a tremendous amount of indepth ideas and concepts. So if one just started trading, one's must keep a computer besides one, just to search for unclear points and ideas.
However, I read these types of books primarily for motivation -- if these guys did it, I can do it, too! Read all three "Market Wizard" books first, but you should definitely add this one to your list.
Top international reviews
It is tolerable because the price of this book is not exorbitant. but do not expect you get to learn something new or better.
It has insights on their trading style, and some of the trials
and tribulations they went through before finding success.
Very worthwhile reading.
