About this title


Today's market participants have a myriad of tools at their disposal. Yet the success rate is that of old - 80% to 90% of traders fail to achieve their financial goals. This book shows traders how to get their investment act together. It covers in detail the three requirements needed for success: Winning psychology, effective money management and a written trading plan with an edge.

  • The Nature of Trends also provides unique tools (for example the MIDAS tool) that provide low risk trade entry by telling the trader the level at which an entry may be safely effected
  • Finally, the book provides the "Rule of 3" to manage a trade. These rules allow the trader to take profits and hold on for long-term profits without increasing risk.

From the Back Cover:

"The Nature of Trends by Ray Barros is one of the finest introductions to trading I've yet encountered. Clearly and concisely, Ray lays out principles for assessing and trading markets, emphasizing congestion ranges, trends, and the interplay of these across time frames. Examples and charts bring the ideas to life, emphasizing practical application of ideas ranging from market profile to wave patterns. This is a book not only to be studied, but savored."

Author, The Psychology of Trading and Enhancing Trader Performance

"After spending over a decade in the financial services industry, particularly focused on technical analysis, I have seen many traders over-complicate what should be a straight forward pursuit. The Nature of Trends by Ray Barros will bring you back to the most fundamental (and often forgotten) rules of trading, which is to identify the trend and then trade within it. I would recommend that every serious trader read this book at least once a year as adopting the simple strategies in this book can help you to flow with the market instead of fighting against it."

"The Nature of Trends by Ray Barros is a book for serious traders. A trader always searches for information, but the serious ones search for in-depth knowledge which can only be found in Ray's book.
—Rickey Cheung
Author, The Trading Edge, How to Trade Like a Winner

"In The Nature of Trends, the author reveals valuable concepts for profiting from a clearer understanding of market structure and the probable duration of tradable trends. There's no fluff, filler, or old rehashed ideas in this refreshing volume on market dynamics. Novice and advanced trader alike will benefit from this comprehensive and enlightening study."

"Identifying and monitoring trends in the market is a key skill in any successful trading campaign. Ray's in-depth analysis and insights make The Nature of Trends a must read for those who are taking trading seriously."
