As a frequent contributor to Futures Magazine, MoneyMorning.com, Traders.com Advantage and other top financial publications, I know from experience that stock trading offers enormous profit potential for traders if you have the right tools for success. But, each year, millions of aspiring stock traders still come to the stock market but still fail to achieve any meaningful success despite being armed with the latest indicators or some expensive stock trading system. There are two main reasons: One, they lack a proper foundation in the study of price action and, two, they lack a method to show them where to find trading opportunities and when to pull the trigger. Price action is the language of the market that is spoken to you each day through price charts and, if you understand what its trying to tell you, then you'll never lack for low-risk trades again. But, you also have to have a stock trading method that provides a set of rules to show you when a trade is setting up with the least amount of risk combined with the highest probability of success. Without understanding either of these concepts, you're chances are slim that you'll succeed. But, if you have the patience, drive, and discipline to apply a few simple rules along with sound fundamental and technical analysis, then the odds are on your side that you'll succeed. In Simple Stock Trading Formulas, you'll read about the role of both the stock exchanges and stocks themselves so that you understand how the game is played. Next, you'll learn how to "look under the hood" to find fundamentally sound stocks that have the highest chance of becoming a high-performer, avoiding the stagnant, lifeless stocks that are going nowhere. Then, you'll get to the meat of the book and get a in-depth breakdown on technical tools, price patterns, how to spot compelling technical criteria, mindset, and a set of rules-based stock trading strategies that work in any market condition. You'll also learn: * The nature of the market and how to use it to profit. * What stocks are and what is their purpose? * Why volatility frightens the majority of traders but how you can profit from it. * The dual relationship of price and volume. * What roles do stock exchanges play? * What key indicators to use to get into the market (and when to stay out). * The best price patterns to trade for consistent winners. * How to spot market reversals and how to profit from them. * What warning signs to watch for so that you don't get wiped out financially. * What 3 indicators form an unbeatable winning formula for trading. * How to use "Big Daddy" to always be on the right side of the trend. * What the only two types of price action are and how to profit with them. * How to spot turns in the market and how to use them to time your entries. * 7 step-by-step trading formulas to find winning trades in any market type. * Fundamental and technical formulas to rack up above-average returns. * And much, much more.

In today's world of instant trade execution, sophisticated analysis, global markets, and 24/7 news, traders and investors still routinely fail to beat the market. The brutal fact is that a free market is about price discovery. A market works like an organism - "consuming" new fundamental and technical information and rendering it ineffective.A 30-day moving average may make money for a while - until the market "digests" this parameter. Today's report on CNBC is already reflected in the price of the stock. Only 1% of traders are superstars who can consistently re-adjust, find, and exploit new information. The average trader or investor needs a simple system that is flexible and robust - that does not depend on the market moving in trends, or creating chart patterns.Praveen Puri developed his system after becoming fascinated with the idea of a pure zen trading system that would use no news reports, indicators, charts, or parameters to distract from Now. He developed a simple and powerful trading system that applies an easy calculation to each stock, fund, or ETF in your portfolio - to buy low and sell high.Praveen Puri has been a full-time trader, financial software developer, and a vice president at a major bank. He has appeared on MSNBC.com, NBC.com, The Wall Street Journal, FINS, MarketWatch.com, and Wise Magazine.

If you could design the perfect market to trade, what would it look like? One that has international exposure? High liquidity? Low-margin requirements? Smaller contracts suitable for smaller accounts? Low-cost transaction fees? Stable market prices? Predictable price movement? No directional bias? Offer the ability to go long or short with uptick requirements? No limit up or limit down rules like in the futures market? The ability to trade around the clock to match your schedule? Offer a wide variety of instruments to trade? The Forex offers all of those things and more. Each day, more than $3 trillion US dollars worth of currencies are traded daily on the Forex across the globe, round the clock. The Forex never sleeps and offers dozens of currency pairs to trade round the clock. Never before has a market been so open and transparent to Forex trading beginners or to veteran traders than in the 21st century Forex market. But, even while offering so much, forex trading for beginners can be a frustrating experience if you don't understand what makes the Forex tick. Especially if you lack reliable Forex trading strategies which can put yourself at unnecessary risk. For example, while Forex price action is considered more stable than the equity markets, you have to understand the impact of international economic reports in Forex trading. Then, you also have to know how to navigate around the games that are played with these reports. Insiders "leak" news concerning these reports to stir up Forex price action since there is no insider trading rules in the Forex. If you understand these nuances up front before you try your hand at Forex trading then you're less likely to fall for these head-fakes and feints by the insiders and suffer unnecessary losses. Better yet, if you have an arsenal of Forex trading tools then you'll be able to look at the price action taking place and easily determine the trend and where you're entry and exit points are before you ever take a position. Whether you prefer Forex scalping to swing trading or taking longer-term positions, the ability to read price action, combine effective technical indicators, and have a plan in place to control risk and maximize your profits is critical to the path of profitability in Forex trading. In the following chapters and pages, you'll learn: - What the key economic indicators are (and how to use them). - Why it's important to diversify your trading strategies. - A 5-step plan to maintain discipline in your trades. - What Ichinioku Clouds are and how to spot trading opportunities with them. - Comprehensive risk strategies to help insulate yourself from loss. - How to protect yourself from fraud. - How to use pivot points to spot "invisible" support and resistance levels. - The four types of price gaps to watch for and how to profit with them. - How to "ride" momentum to higher profits. - Where the financial epicenter of Forex volume is located (and it's not in the U.S.). - How to combine the 20-day EMA and MACD into a formidable trading strategy. - Don't have alot of money? Welcome to the world of Forex Mini-Accounts. - How to read price action with candlestick patterns. - Keep your emotions in check (not knowing this can lead to sleepless nights). - Technical price patterns and what to watch for, and what to ignore. - How to combine price action, indicators, and technical patterns to form bullet-proof trading strategies.

In this groundbreaking book, professional trader, Tony Oz, shows the world how he trades stocks for a living. All his trading activities are documented in a detailed trading diary. The idea is simple, and the formula classic. Tony invites everyone to take an intimate look into his activities as he explains the strategies and processes behind his actions. It is a recipe that has worked for centuries, as Master entrusts to Apprentice a lifetime of knowledge and experience. After accepting an exciting challenge, Tony Oz holds nothing back, providing all the decisive details of each trade, including the thoughts, strategies, surprises, and problems, and how he dealt with the moment-by-moment challenges the Market presented him. Such a book had never been attempted before. No trader has ever put their reputation on the line with this kind of honesty. It is easy to search through past trades and present the best ones. But no trader has come forth in advance with the candor to say, "For the next four weeks, I will reveal my every move, for better or worse, entries and exits, winners and losers, with all my profits and losses." Presented in these pages, 116 Round Trips are documented, including the charts, illustrations, and formulas. Tony explains the research and preparation; the joys and frustrations; the exhilarating victories and disappointing defeats. And of course, the blow-by-blow descriptions of each battle between Emotions, Decisions, Market Makers, and Technology. In this fascinating account, readers will quickly find themselves immersed in the action as Tony weaves his narrative. The chess game never lets up, as The Stock Trader matches his wits with the best the Market can throw at him. And by an astonishing coincidence of timing, trading for this book was in full swing during the Great Stock Market Crash. When the devastation was complete and the carnage had exhausted itself, The Stock Trader rose from beneath the rubble triumphantly wielding his profits, unbowed and unscathed, from a Market where Trillions of dollars had been obliterated within a mere fourteen days.Most traders would agree that studying the actions, strategies, and emotions of a great trader is an opportunity anyone, regardless of experience or viewpoint, can benefit from. This book is a treasure in that regard, and is sure to become a classic, as Tony demonstrates with his simple methods, that you too, can make a living trading stocks. While some of the technology stocks Tony Oz trades today have changed from JDSU and RMBS to TSLA, FB, NFLX, AMZN and GOOGL, he still trades the same way illustrated in this book. If you ever wanted to look over the shoulder of a master trader this is your chance. NEW EDITION JULY 2020

Exploiting Earnings Volatility introduces an innovative new framework for evaluating, optimizing, and trading option strategies to profit from earnings-related pricing anomalies. Leveraging his extensive background in option-pricing and decades of experience in investment management and trading, Brian Johnson developed this inventive approach specifically to design and manage option earnings strategies. In an Active Trader article titled "Modeling Implied Volatility," Mr. Johnson introduced a formula for aggregating discrete volatility measures into a single metric that can be used with conventional option pricing formulas to accurately model implied volatility before and after earnings announcements. The practical application of this formula has profound implications for option trading and strategy development. Exploiting Earnings Volatility is written in a clear, understandable fashion and explains how to use this novel approach to 1) solve for the expected level of earnings volatility implicitly priced in an option matrix, 2) calculate historical levels of realized and implied earnings volatility, 3) develop strategies to exploit divergences between the two, and 4) calculate expected future levels of implied volatility before and after earnings announcements. Furthermore, Exploiting Earnings Volatility also includes two Excel spreadsheets. The Basic spreadsheet employs minimal input data to estimate current and historical earnings volatility and utilizes those estimates to forecast future levels of implied volatility around earnings announcements. The Integrated spreadsheet includes a comprehensive volatility model that simultaneously integrates and quantifies every component of real-world implied volatility, including earnings volatility. This powerful tool allows the user to identify the precise level of over or undervaluation of every option in the matrix and to accurately forecast future option prices and option strategy profits and losses before and after earnings announcements. The Integrated spreadsheet even includes an optimization tool designed to identify the option strategy with the highest level of return per unit of risk. Written specifically for investors who have familiarity with options, this practical guide begins with a detailed review of volatility and an explanation of the aggregate implied volatility formula. A separate chapter provides a conceptual and mathematical explanation of "True Greeks," accurate measures of risk and return sensitivity that reflect the real-world behavior of options. New option Greeks that are specific to earnings announcements are also introduced. Four chapters explain how to use the Basic and Integrated spreadsheets and two chapters document trade examples that use actual market data and analytical results from both spreadsheets to design a unique option strategy to exploit earnings-related pricing and volatility anomalies. The final chapter examines practical considerations and prospective applications of these innovative new tools. This book introduces a new analytical framework that may sound complicated at first, but is really quite intuitive. The formulas presented in the book are limited to basic high-school algebra. Mathematical relationships are also explained intuitively and depicted graphically. Most important, you will not need to perform any of these calculations manually. Exploiting Earnings Volatility includes a link to Excel spreadsheets that perform all of the calculations described in the book. The unique price and volatility behavior of options before and after discrete earnings announcements is an enigma to most option traders, even to many professionals. The aggregate volatility formula is relatively simple, but it has profound implications. When integrated with a real-world volatility model, it offers unique insights into earnings volatility, price behavior, option strategy construction, and prospective value-added opportunities.

Explores two neglected mathematical tools essential for competing successfully in today's frenzied commodities markets: quantity, which shows the proper amounts a trader should trade for a given market and system, and intercorrelation of returns (diversification), which shows not only which markets and systems to trade, but how to diversify with respect to trading the right quantities for each market. By using these lesser known tools in conjunction with the more popular trade/system selection tools, readers will see mathematically how success in the markets can be achieved, and how ``success'' without using all three is most likely incidental. In addition, non-stationary distribution of profits and losses and drawdowns are incorporated into the discussions to expose traders to the highs and lows of commodities markets and how best to leverage their assets.
