Typical beginner trading book,
This review is from: Day Trading Grain Futures: A practical guide to trading for a living (Paperback)
This book doesn't have much actual substance. Most of the things are pretty beginner stuff that can be found in almost every "how to be a day trader" book.
The section on "Why Trade Grains" is 2 pages.
The rest is fluffy stuff like "Let winners run and cut losses quickly"
To give a general sense of the book there is a chapter on charts. It's 4 pages and explains what candlesticks are. There are also general chapters on things like support and resistance and entry points (i.e. don't buy a downtrend).
What little commodity specific information (tick size, volume, margin) there is could easily be found at the CME's website for free.

thanks for a good review. it seems like most of reviewers here are pretty new to futures trading and/or day trading. I am pretty comfortable with day trading and futures (es and gc) but wanted to know about nuts and bolts of grains futures. It seems like this is not the book.
