From the Author:

Cyber trade like the pros in today's volatile markets.
When I first came to Wall St., I knew nothing. In an attempt to educate myself, I read every market and trading book that I could get my hands on. While many of the reoccurring themes in these books have helped me to form a sound fundamental trading strategy, I was constantly left with the feeling that I was missing something. I realized the importance of strategies such as "cut your losses and hold your winners," but there had to be more to profitable trading than that. I feverishly searched for something, anything, which would enlighten me and show me the tricks that the pros were using to reap fortunes.

The first thing I wanted to know was why the professional trader seemed to always know more than the individual. As I began to trade and eventually gained exposure to both the NYSE and NASDAQ, I started to learn more and more about what was going on behind the scenes. As a professional on the floor of the American Stock Exchange, and later a trader on a block desk, I learned how a specialist would open a stock where he could make the most money, how an institution handled a large order, why stocks would move for no apparent reason and much, much more. Every time I learned something new I thought, "If only I had known that before, I would have made a ton!!!"

The Electronic Day Trader is the answer to Pandora's Box, for the individual investor. It provides the answers to those behind the scenes events which have such a great effect on our markets during the day. In addition, it provides the reader with the basic skills and rules which are the foundation of success for many of today's top traders. If I had this book when I began trading, I would have been light years ahead in my learning curve (and have more money too!!)

Find out how to unlock the potential in the markets like the pros do, using the same cutting edge technology, blazing execution speed and low cost commissions. Now you, the individual investor, can be on a level playing field with the industry's best and profit from one of the greatest times in history to day trade.
