Proven Profitable Grain Futures Day Trading Method, September 29, 2009 ByCreek (Minden, NV USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Day Trading Grain Futures: A Practical Guide to Trading for a Living (Paperback) This is the only futures day trading book I know of that deals exclusively with the grain futures markets - specifically corn, soybeans, and wheat. The first few chapters of the book cover the basics of trading grain commodity futures. In the balance of the book the author explains and profusely illustrates his trading method, which is reasonably simple and straightforward. What I especially like about this book: (1) you trade with the trend ("The trend is your friend" is such a bromide in futures trading that almost nobody follows it anymore. They should. It works.). (2) You execute a maximum of one trade a day. (3) You calculate your profit objectives on every trade, how many contracts you can trade, and how much risk you should take on each trade - all before you ever enter a trade. (4) You track your trades to make sure the average profits on your winning trades are larger than the average losses on your losing trades. (5) You constantly monitor your trading...

This Became My Trading Bible, April 6, 2011 ByR. Jacobs (Chicago, IL) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Day Trading Grain Futures: A Practical Guide to Trading for a Living (Paperback) I was a bit hesitant after seeing the size of this book. Thinking that I actually needed a big thick book in order to be successful at trading the futures market. This book focuses only in grains (Wheat, Corn and Beans). I have read many books before but the simplicity of this book absolutely revolutionized the way I trade now. Following this strategy I leave all emotions aside and focus on following simple rules. The risk management that David Bennett teaches is the KEY to being a successful trader. Your wins become 2 to 3 times more than your losses, which means that even if you have a 50-50 win/loss ratio you still make money! I have found that there are more wins that losses which makes for a nice hefty profit! You can trade using this book with little or large capital...and be successful at it!

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, January 30, 2011 ByThe Duke - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Day Trading Grain Futures: A Practical Guide to Trading for a Living (Paperback) I am an advent believer that simple trading methods work best. The key is a hands on approach to trading not an academic one. Books that are written by professional traders not professional writers who make money by writing books on trading. This book is written in a very clear language. The author uses excellent illustrations and examples. The author comes across as candid and interested in helping other fellow traders. This guy clearly trades for a living. The book is about 150 pages and colored. Very quick read because most of the pages are examples. Again simple yet powerful.
