Traders Magazine Review - Helen Quenet, October 2, 2003 ByHelen Quenet (UK) - See all my reviews This review is from: Come Into My Trading Room: A Complete Guide to Trading (Hardcover) Book Review - Come Into My Trading Room by Dr Alexander ElderIt was with a great deal of curiosity that I began to read Come Into My Trading Room. Trading for a Living, Elders first and classic book was the second trading book I ever read and even 40 or so books on from there I still rate it in my top five and frequently recommend it to others who want a considered and honest introduction to trading.I was interested to see how the themes and emphasis had changed and developed in the nine years since the first book was published. I had briefly read a couple of reviews that suggested it didn't add much to the previous book but I was eager to make my own mind up.So the first question I asked myself was what hasn't changed? The style of writing is as clear and engaging as in the first book. The layout is logical and in all key areas he suggests further, more specialised reading to take you deeper into the subjects that may interest you. For the size of the book (only 313...

An Excellent Follow-Up to Elder's Trading For A Living, February 8, 2004 ByPrice Headley (Lexington, KY United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Come Into My Trading Room: A Complete Guide to Trading (Hardcover) Alexander Elder gained well-deserved prominence for his first book, Trading For a Living. It's one of my favorite books on trading. Out of this classic came such new indicators as the Force Index, which is one of the indicators I use regularly in my chart software. I read Elder's follow-up, Come Into My Trading Room, in hopes of learning additional insights of the Force Index. While I found some new information here, I was even more impressed by the following lessons Elder shared:1) "Some of the best trading opportunities occur after false breakouts" - I'm finding this more and more these days, which is why I actively use my Momentum Divergence indicators to separate the fakeouts from the real breakouts. Elder does a great job showing numerous charts throughout his book, laying the groundwork for the divergence examples he explains in great depth when you step into his trading room in the final chapter with many actual trading examples. You need to understand the...

Not crazy about it, April 15, 2006 ByAndrew Kasch "Life is good" (California USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Come Into My Trading Room: A Complete Guide to Trading (Hardcover) Too well written for a 1-star, and you just have to respect the author of Trading for a Living. But I was quite disappointed. Essentially it's a trend following methodology of entering on pullbacks to the 20 MA and exiting when they extend to the outer band (envelope, band, channel, it doesn't matter). Classic indicators are tweaked slightly and pitched as "Elder Indicators" which of course you can buy the disks for. Really this whole book could have been condensed to a 3 or 4 page .pdf file and not left any of the concepts out. He advises against day-trading and questions whether it can actually be done profitably. That is pretty short-sighted of him in light of all the known profitable daytraders out there. His reasoning is that with his method it would be too difficult. That came across as egotistical and closed-minded to me. The thing that really threw me off is that after a book teaching a trend-following system (and warning against other...
