Publisher's Summary

If you've ever watched the stock market spinning madly, stocks like GameStop going up 100 percent and then down 50 percent, and wondered whether you could take a slice of the action - the answer is yes!

Learn how to trade based on what the charts tell you, and you can make great returns while limiting your risks. Marty Schwartz used technical trading to boost $40,000 to $20 million in a few years, and Ray Dalio (Bridgewater Associates) built a $10bn fortune setting up computer algorithms to look for good trades.

And plenty of individuals are now using zero-commission brokers like EToro and Robinhood to make their own fortunes. For instance, EToro's details on some of their top traders show:

  • Jay Edward Smith made returns of over 50 percent in 2019 trading stocks and cryptocurrencies.
  • Olivier Danvel, a low risk trader, has a target 1 percent monthly return and hasn't had a single negative month in three years
  • Heloise Greeff has averaged a 20 percent a year return trading stocks and ETFs.

And you could join them! But 90 percent of beginning traders lose money, because they commit these six classic mistakes:

  • They don't check chart patterns against other indicators.
  • They bet the bank on a single trade.
  • They don't get out of a trade when it goes against them.
  • They let their emotions run their trades.
  • They don't create a proper set of trading rules.
  • They don't know how to estimate the risk/return on every trade.

So even if you’ve never listened to a single trading audiobook in your life, you will immediately understand how to become a successful technical trader.

So if you want to make sure you understand when to enter into a trade, then you should listen to this audiobook!

Great for beginners

This audiobook is an excellent introduction into trading stocks for beginners. I was hoping for more of the advanced stuff but I guess the author felt the need to start with the basics and a beginners guide can go only so far before it would not be even appropriate for this level of traders.
The book showed wonderful research and organization of the material. Topics like trending, technical analysis, indicators, breakouts, the various patterns, traps to avoid and even recognition of some of the psychological aspects of trading are covered in dept, explained with easy to understand language.
I found this audio very helpful and informative.
I also enjoyed the narrator, who did a great job presenting the information.

A fantastic and insightful book!

I really enjoyed this book on the inner workings behind stocks and charting that is explained in detail. Just looking at charts may show, on the surface, that a stock may be profitable. Penn dives deeper in more detail to look for trends and other indicators to recognize profitable stocks instead of just candlestick upticks. Trading has so many moving parts, and this book explains each aspect from the stop loss and when to use it to uptrends. Stock buying/selling is intimidating and using this book as a tool. I have a better understanding than I had before and am more confident in my abilities to trade.

Penn explains in detail trend lines and how to recognize them. He also stresses the use of a second indicator instead of only relying on candlestick charts before entering the market. Having a full understanding of what the patterns are showing is important, and Penn explains each aspect beautifully.

I appreciated that he Included a pop quiz in each chapter which is an excellent idea to make sure you understand the plethora of information. When I missed a question, I went back and listened to that chapter again, taking notes. Overall, it is an excellent book to learn how charting works and using multiple tools before entering the market when trading.

Perfect

I started really getting into investing in 2020 and have heard some of the things discussed in this book but never really knew what they meant. After listing to this and applying that missing knowledge that I was lacking I've been able to invest and make even more efficiently!

Straight Forward and Encouraging

The advice is plain, practical and thorough. I am not a financial wiz by any means, but was able to gain insight with this. I appreciate the definitions and breakdown of concepts that would have had my head spinning if not for a thorough explanation. Listen, listen again and take notes. This is good stuff!!

Very Easy To Understand

I was pleasantly surprised with this book, and feel like I am walking away with a much greater understanding of the stock market. The narrator was easy to listen to and did a great job!
I started listening to this just to get a grasp of what my clients in PT and Hospice care are talking about. I really didn't expect to walk away understanding much, but I can honestly say that I can carry an intelligent conversation with them about their stocks now! Haha! It's the small things that make their day better.
Overall, it's a well done book that has made me feel like I could confidently start investing in stock if I wanted to, and it has made my conversations with my stock market loving people more meaningful.

Great honest book in technical analysis

The most helpful part of this book was the chapter about indicators. Some things mentioned were debatable based on my own experience in the stock market, but I was able to learn how to watch stocks better and I like that it encourages you to think for yourself.

As someone who has been in crypto for a couple of years now, I've been slowly learning the ropes as I've gone. This book has really helped to consolidate my prior knowledge and push it on a step or two.

Everything you need to get started!

A great audiobook for anyone looking into learning about technical analysis. Breaks down the basics, then takes you through common patterns etc to look out for. Even has a chapter for trading psychology which some people may argue is the most important aspect. Very well rounded and informative book!

A great book!

Very well structured and easy to digest despite the vast volume of information. It felt like I already knew most of the things in the book but the few details that I didn't have made all the difference. This book changed the way I now trade. I have more structure, discipline and a whole lot more confidence in my ability to assess and make decisions.
Thank you for sharing all your knowledge and experience.

Lots of information!

The title of this book is intimidating but and I was reluctant to pick it up, but when I started reading it, it turned out to be something that I cherish. I have listened to one stock trading book that I like, but I think it took a different approach altogether, and I love it. The book is filled with a lot of information for anyone that wants to start a stock investment. This book had opened my eyes, and it is now leading me in the right direction. I now have informed decision on this topic of investing. The author explained terminologies and concepts clearly, and he also used related examples to make his point. I like this book because the language is friendly and can be related to easily by beginners like myself and even those who have no idea of what stock trading is. I don’t have to crack my brain to figure out what he is trying to say, which is good for all beginners. Overall, this book is a pack of information that will help anyone decide about investing. I would recommend it.

Thorough guide to Technical Analysis!

A really great audiobook for those wanting to master technical analysis. I have been trading for quite a while but never thought to listen to an audiobook to help engrain some of the fundamentals. It's been really great listening to this during my daily commute to work. The free complementary PDF is a great addition. Well worth a listen for anyone serious about learning how to trade.

Big promise, big delivery

'Take $1k to $10k Using Charting and Stock Trends of the Financial Markets with Zero Trading Experience Required' That's what this book promises. I thought to myself ' impossible!' when I first saw the title. I parked the book in my playlist for some time, unwilling to be disappointed. And then, I finally got to it and I wish I had listened to this book sooner. There may be no magic formula to getting rich, but this here comes close. Highly recommended.

Practical and improves trading skills

I was considering investing some of my income into stock, but was not sure where to begin and how. This audiobook came at the right moment and solved many of my questions about the trading trend. There is a pdf attached with the audiobook, which is amazingly helpful for its images and tables. I love there's a quiz at the end of every chapter making sure we know it very well and right on track. Super informative. I'd recommend it to those new to this field.
