From the Inside Flap:

"If traders plan on making serious money in [the] markets, it will boil down to one thing: how they manage their money. Outside of sheer luck, no one will make a tremendous amount of money.without a proper money management strategy. This is the basis of this book." -from the Preface Not a week goes by that investment experts don't offer us more "winning" trading methods and systems. Some work better than others, but they all seem to stop working sooner or later. To obtain-and maintain-an edge on a regular basis, savvy traders need an effective money/risk management plan. Based on sound trading principles, The Trading Game gives investors proven risk management techniques that are not only easy to understand and apply, but can lead to consistent and regular profits. Written by Ryan Jones, whose seminars on risk management are eagerly attended by traders nationally, this groundbreaking book shows you step-by-step how to increase your trading profits without necessarily increasing the performance of your trading system or method. By using the management techniques described, you can reap greater profits whether the method wins 25 percent of the time, 40 percent of the time, or 90 percent of the time. Unlike other books on risk management that tend to be loaded down with complicated formulas and technical jargon, The Trading Game presents the topic in a way that is clear, concise, and practical. Covering the why's, what's, when's, and how's, it walks you through the entire risk management process with complete details on everything from margin requirements and fixed fractional trading to market weighting and protecting profits. Along with a complete, workable method for making $1 million in five years or less, you'll find straightforward guidelines on determining how many trades to place, analyzing what their maximum drawdowns should be, and combining different markets and different systems for diversification. You'll also learn to assess whether you're a conservative or aggressive trader, what your goals are, and the degree to which you're able to tolerate risk. An invaluable guide for every trader and sophisticated investor, The Trading Game offers a powerful array of solutions to one of the most puzzling problems in trading: how to keep losses small so that profits accrue.
