Trader or investor? Short-term or long-term? Perhaps you will address these issues prior to making your first stock market investment although that is unlikely. I imagine most people will jump into the market without any great thought given to any aspect of trading. Usually the first investment that someone makes is based on word of mouth from a well- meaning friend. No plan, no exit strategy, no idea of anything.
This book is a book of trading (or investing – the words are interchangeable) tips. It is not a book with in depth detail on developing a trading plan or how to use stop loss orders effectively or what sort of buy signals work best. That sort of detail is written in my book “Exploding the Myths – What your broker doesn’t know or won’t tell you”.
