    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Trading Book Ever, April 6, 2013

    This review is from: Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard: How to Achieve Super Performance in Stocks in Any Market (Hardcover) This book if read carefully and followed could shorten the learning curve by years for anyone trying to get into trading. I have been trading as long as the author and I learned a lot from this book. There is so much crap out there now in the "trading" book area; this is the real deal. I love the approach of fundamental and technical analysis instead of the mindless "use this setup and don't worry about what it is you are trading" lazy approach that seems so prevalent now. The risk management section should be read and reread until it is second nature. Destined to become a trading classic, possibly should also be part of a business school curriculum. Crazy low price for the information imparted.

    This review is from: Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard: How to Achieve Super Performance in Stocks in Any Market (Hardcover) This is a great book. It is an absolute steal for $13. I would pay ten times that amount for this book. Minervini's system is very similar to CANSLIM. Minervini spends the first part of his book discussing some misconceptions that many investors believe such as overvaluing the importance of PE and buying stocks because they appear cheap. In the next section he discusses the fundamental traits of big winners, such as the need for EPS and sales growth. Chapters 9 and 10 are an absolute gold mine. In chapter 9, Mark discusses how to find market leaders and in chapter 10 he discusses pivot points and how to enter the stock at the right time. If you've read How to make money in stocks, you will recognize the cup and handle and Flag patterns. However, Mark spends time on discussing how to know if the cup and handle is valid and reliable. In addition, he also discusses the 3C cup cheat which is a way to enter a cup and handle pattern prior to the traditional Oneil pivot point. Moreover, I really liked that Mark spent time discuss what to do if a breakout fails and how to know if a stock is acting healthy (he calls it a tennis ball) or poorly (an egg) after the breakout. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed reading How to make money in stocks. I found it to be the perfect addition to Oneil's book. This is truly a classic, I would put it up with Stan Weinstein's book, Reminisces of a Stock Operator, Darvas' book, the Market Wizards, and of course How to Make Money in Stocks. I actually got this book at 3pm yesterday. A day later, I'm already up to page 257. This is a must read for any stock market junkie.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book I Have Ever Read on Stock Trading, March 29, 2013

    By Andrew J. Kunian "Drewmx" (USA)

    This review is from: Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard: How to Achieve Super Performance in Stocks in Any Market (Hardcover) This is without a doubt the best book I ever read on stock trading. If you enjoyed the O'Neil book, "How to Make Money in Stocks", then this takes it to the next level of the game. Like O'Neil's book, you have to read Minervini's several times because it's incredibly comprehensive and detailed. The difference is Minervini's book has more actionable advice. It's very specific and "step-by-step". He conveys the lessons perfectly clear. I'm very excited to put Minervini's ideas and methods into my daily routine. I've been waiting for this book for a long time now. I knew it was going to be special when I heard that three-time US Investing Champion, David Ryan, wrote the Forward to the book. But it is far better than I even expected. A great book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars This book has so much to offer every trader, April 3, 2013

    This review is from: Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard: How to Achieve Super Performance in Stocks in Any Market (Hardcover) I never did a review before, but I felt compelled to review this book because I liked it so much and I feel it could help any trader that takes the time to read it. I don't know where to start. This book has so much great stuff in it. Every section of the book has valuable advice... specific tactics, strategy, personal stories and psychology this book delivers. I can see why this guy has been so successful; he's incredibly detailed and specific. If you want to learn a disciplined approach to trading, then this book is for you. I love the way it's broken down into bite size chunks. I read the book over the course of two days with ease. This is one of the best books written for stock traders in a long time. There are a few things that Minervini pointed out in the risk management section - like the dangers of adjusting for volatility - that blew me away. Kudos to Minervini for really giving us a great gift of insight well beyond the usual reads that do little to materially help stock investors. I give this book two thumbs up and a solid five star rating.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for everyone!!, April 1, 2013

    This review is from: Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard: How to Achieve Super Performance in Stocks in Any Market (Hardcover) I have been trading stocks full-time for many years and have read many books on the subject. I feel the book delivers practically everything you need to know to become a better trader (without any of the fluff). The writing is very concise and easy to understand even though it's very advanced.

    Additionally, there are certain topics that he writes about in depth that will change one's thinking about several different aspects of trading. He provides factual data & his personal experience to back-up his concepts. Many of these ideas opened my mind to seeing how a profitable trader can become much more successful - and reach superperformance achievements. Most importantly, he shares how to avoid the pitfalls that knocks many people out of the game.

    Finally, he includes great stories and analogies (along with a huge number of charts). It will definitely take a re-reading of them to truly internalize them - as they completely shatter years of common thinking about the markets. Well done!!
