Review:

There are so many myths and misconceptions about day trading that it's no surprise that it has a bad name. In The New Electronic Traders, financial columnist Jonathan R. Aspatore interviews over a dozen very successful traders who cast new light on an industry gaining respectability and a new name: electronic direct access trading. The traders tell how they have mastered the markets, what it takes to get started, and how to avoid common mistakes. They describe how to research trades, control risk, and develop your own trading style. To a man, they say mastering your emotional responses and the development of discipline are essential keys to success. As one trader puts it, "Not having discipline is a recipe for absolute disaster. That is why you hear about so many day traders who lose their shirts." As each of the traders makes clear, in trading it's hard to do the right thing and easy to do the wrong thing, and there are so many more wrong things to do and so many things that can just go wrong.

The book clarifies the significant differences between online investing through a broker and trading with direct access to the markets. It provides insight into the evolution of electronic trading over the last decade, and gives a glimpse into the future of a hypergrowth industry still in its infancy. The traders' experiences and advice, strategies, shortcuts, and tips included here are invaluable to anyone who seeks to profit in today's markets, whatever the time horizon. --Scott Harrison
