About the Author

Philip Reschke has traded the stock market for more than 15 years. He firmly believes that smart short-term trading decisions must be based on quantitative research, not discretionary belief.

Philip has spent a lot of time identifying exploitable stock market edges, some of which he shares with his readers in his first book, Stock Market Edges - A quantitative guide to developing winning trading strategies, published on May 16, 2013.

The book teaches the active trader how to improve the precision, accuracy and profitability of their stock market trading strategies by leveraging some of the many market edges that successful traders exploit every day.

Every market edge presented in Stock Market Edges is based on comprehensive statistical analyses and has been tested across seven different markets (S&P 500 ETF, NASDAQ 100 ETF, FTSE 100 Index, German Stock Index (DAX), Hang Seng Index, Nikkei 225, and the S&P 500 Index) over a period of more than 14 years.

Stock Market Edges was initially released in May 2013 as a Multi Touch book designed exclusively for the iPad and only available in Apple's iBookstore. After big demanded Stock Market Edges was released for Amazon's Kindle as a traditional eBook in Apple's iBookstore. Since its release Stock Market Edges has received an average rating of 4.8 on 80+ reviews across several countries, including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and Denmark.

The book discusses quantified edges available in the stock market. Tests are conducted on the major stock market indices, (NASDAQ, S&P500, FTSE, DAX) which makes the tests fairly diversified. A real and sustainable edge is provided by the methods in the book. A discussion on setups and entry alone is worth many times the modest price of this book.

I am surprised at a one star review given by someone. The person has not read the book, or may not be a trader.

Buy it, read it and profit from it.

Every market edge presented in Stock Market Edges is supported by comprehensive statistical analyses across seven different markets (S&P 500 ETF, NASDAQ 100 ETF, FTSE 100 Index, German Stock Index (DAX), Hang Seng Index, Nikkei 225, and the S&P 500 Index) and over a period of more than 14 years.

My experience is that only when taking a comprehensive approach to analyzing whether something has a statistical edge or not, is it relevant to consider adding it to your arsenal of trading components.

If you cannot follow the rules of your own trading strategy, but let your emotions get the better of you, most traders will end up in the bucket of 90-95% of traders who consistently lose money trading the markets. The primary reason why trading psychology is such an important aspect of successful trading is that one has to learn to trade against our human instinct. In Stock Market Edges the author shows that one must be a buyer when everyone else is selling and be a seller when everyone else is buying.

I especially like the section about using a set-up and an entry signal to time my trades. As the author says: "Developing a trading strategy that relies on a set-up and an entry signal will, with all likelihood, increase the precision, accuracy and profitability of your strategy. Whether it does so or not will largely depend on whether you use a set-up and an entry signal with a statistically proven edge."

Enjoy the book as I am sure it will teach even experienced traders, such as me, something new.

I have always thought a quantitative approach to trading was the only way to go but I have been struggling to build strategies that had a consistent edge. This changed after I read Stock Market Edges.

Stock Market Edges test 10 different patterns/indicators across 6 different markets. The findings are incredible - several of them gives one an edge on many of the markets, even after estimated trading costs.

I am using MultiCharts/Interactive Brokers as my primary trading platform so developing strategies based on some of the edges was easy. My findings were impressing. I have finally been able to build a strategy with a consistent edge across both the QQQ and the SPY.

Thanks to writing this one of a kind book. I learned a lot and now believe that I can make it as a trader.

Highly recommended.

It is a very solid book for traders learning quantitative trading strategies and, of course, their edges. The author went through many of the most important technical indicators and explained his observation and rationale in good details.

There is no certainty that you can beat the market by reading a book. But it can be a good start.

However, with this book you might increase your chances just a bit.

This book is all about teaching you how to exploit statistically proven edges that you can leverage to your advantage. The author describes each edge in great detail and clearly lays out the results behind his tests.

For the novice trader just starting out this is a fantastic read.

Stock Market Edges was the first book I read about trading. I didn't know much prior to reading it but I was taught a lot about why it is important to only trade with the odds in your favor.

Since reading the book I have bought and read a couple of other ones. Some on technical analysis and some on discretionary trading. After having explore the various approaches to trading there's no doubt in my mind that a quantitative approach is the way to go.

If you want to learn how to get started with quantitative trading this is the book for you. Give it a chance :-)

I first bought the book when it was only released in iBookstore. Very happy that I bought it again in a promotion week because i prefer a kindle version.

During my trading career, I have found that the highest rate of return for any stock market trading strategy, while reducing risk and minimizing drawdown, is achieved when trading frequently and holding the position for short periods of time. This book tests a range of different indicators for mean reversal edges which can be successfully exploited in short-term trading. Beginner or quantitative trader, buy this book, you will like it.

In my mind there is no way to consistently make money trading int the stock market unless you apply some kind of statistical analysis to ensure that what you doing in fact has an edge. 

If you want to learn techniques to analyze how the market works and how the market might behave after sharp up-and-down moves you should definitely buy this book. It is the first one that has taught me some actionable patterns that can help me make money in the long term.

The book is well written, to the point and and can easily be used as both a 'learning book' and subsequently as a reference book.

I highly recommend it.
