"Sharing his years of experience as a seasoned and successful trader, Williams offers his market wisdom on a wide range of topics, from chaos and speculation to volatility breakouts and profit patterns. With his expert guidance, you'll learn about such fundamentals as how the market moves, what are the three most dominant cycles, when to exit a trade, and how to hold on to winners until the end of your chosen time frame.
Along with in-depth analysis of the most effective short-term trading strategies and details on the best theory and implementation of money management, Long-Term Secrets to Short-Term Trading features Williams's winning technical indicators, as well as his thoughts on a broad range of topics. Here is a sampling:
* "A short-term trader has one objective; to catch the current trend of the market. That's it. That's all you should try to do!"
* "The shorter your time frame of trading the less money you'll make."
* "You will never make big money until you learn to hold on to your winners, and the longer you hold the more potential you have for profiteering. . . . It takes time to make money regardless of the activity."
* "Wealth is not amassed with just good market calls. It also requires correct money management."
* "I think you need to fear the market and fear yourself. . . . Without fear there is no respect, if you do not respect the markets and fear yourself you will become one more dead body on the long trail of commodity market casualties scattered across the land."
Filled with invaluable insight, precise rules and formulas, and helpful advice from one of today's most respected market players, this comprehensive and practical resource will serve as the basis for, if not indeed become, your short-term trading "gospel.""
Larry is the only person I know who can mix systems and rules with confessions of his soul. This book should have universal appeal to not only the trading world but to all who apply themselves to the laws of the universe. This is a study of the self, the markets, and the interfacing of the two." -Linda Raschke, President, LBR Group, Inc., CTA
"Larry Williams' contributions to the study of technical analysis are well documented and indisputable. I have learned more from Larry than all other traders combined. His techniques are original, clever, and fresh. The depth and breadth of his knowledge is mind-boggling. I highly recommend it." -Tom DeMark, author of New Market Timing Techniques and The New Science of Technical Analysis
"Having known Larry for 25 years, I can truly say that this is his 'magnum opus'; the culmination of a brilliant career; must reading for anyone who trades futures with success as their goal!"-Jake Bernstein, President, MBH Commodity Advisors, Northbrook, Illinois
First and foremost I hope you are still finding value in my writings and want to thank you for reading. The royalties go to support the Max Wales scholarship at the University of Oregon. Max was the best professor I had...and this is just one way I have chosen to acknowledge him. The scholarship is to the School of Journalism so if any of you have kids going there let me know. Go Ducks!
I have a new book out, "confessions of a tax rebel" about my 12 year battle with the IRS. This certainly was the most arduous chapter in my life so far. The battle as well as how and why I got into it is fully covered in the book. It is kind of Indiana Jones meets the Department of Justice...the culmination was trial last year that ended---favorably---on the third day when all charges were dropped.
Wiley wanted an update to my 1998 book, "Long Term Secrets of Short Term Trading", that project was just completed and the new edition shud be out soon.
Lots of market stuff on my web page Ireallytrade.com and I will check in here from time to time best wishes to all ...
