Clear and Concrete

First off, I'd like to say that for someone who loves technical indicators like the MACD and Parabolic Sar, I really enjoyed this book. Having read many books where technical indicators are simply described on their individual merits, it was wonderful to find a book where the author actually presented some systems in a concrete and clear manner.I'm sure you'll find this book very clearly written, with the 3 systems clearly illustrated with examples on the entry method along with a few exit methods.Before explaining his systems, the author presented some quite introductory materials on the technical indicators used - this is good and systematic, and certainly helps the beginner, but if you are an advanced trader with clear ideas of your own trading system, you may not find this book so useful.


Not without flaws, but a damn good trading book. The author presents 3 methods, which are probably fairly well known, but to have it clarified and presented with examples certainly would help a trader add another tool to their box. I did notice plenty of varied entries and often vague exits, which may have been a result of curve fitting to the examples. However, it is of a minor concern.



Strategies That Work

I anxiously awaited the publication of this book since I am always on the lookout for new trading ideas from Tom Bierovic. I first discovered Tom's work at one of the Futures Magazine Trading Seminars where he was a speaker. What caught my eye was the down to earth, solid, and workable trading principles he presented. I was also impressed that he had, for years, been a full time trader for his own account and was willing to share the ideas and systems that he actually used. "Playing for Keeps" is no exception. Tom lays out in detail three trading strategies that can be used in all markets and timeframes. The strategies are presented with numerous examples. I believe that with all of Tom's background in system research and development (he was head of system development for Omega Research and is currently writing a series of articles for Active Trader magazine), the fact that Tom chose these three strategies to present in his book gives me confidence that these strategies will make money if properly applied. (I would have given the book five stars if it had included Easy Language code)

Simple but Good

An excellent book. Most books on trading will focus on setups, focusing on entry strategies, whilst skimming over aspects of stop placements, and exits. Worst still, some books will give you setups that are completely untestable with well selected examples. This book is a very thin volume. However despite that, it is one step ahead compared to most books. It actually explains the concepts and mechanics behind three trading plans in precise details. All three ideas are testable. No, they dont always work. Only trading plans with 20/20 hindight do. What it offers is more. It emphasizes the minimal elements that are necessary for anyone in constructing a good trading plan.This is of course obvious. But not obvious enough as otherwise, there wont always be a fixed population of 90% of traders who lose money every year. A good enjoyable read.
