By Michael Swanson
With a vast Wall Street experience behind him, Michael Swanson has turned to writing a book to inspire others to learn to trade like him. Offering up interesting and often unique experiences from a high-pressured trading perspective, this book is aimed at being a quick yet accessible introduction into how to master trading strategies like the pros.
Given his Wall Street pedigree, Michael Swanson may find it easier than others to be able to talk about how much experience he has and why others should pay attention to him. His eye for the market is considered to be esteemed, having managed to make a 50% increase on his investments during one of the most difficult years imaginable, during the Global Financial Crisis in 2008.
His approach to writing, therefore, could well elevate him among some of his peers, and he has also written the Wallstreetwindow.com website for many years, detailing how to master different trade strategies to get ahead with investments.
Delivered over a short number of pages, the author says his intent is to be able to provide a way to learn the key aspects and develop as a trader from there.
On that basis, he starts with learning to spot the right patterns so as to know when to enter the market and when not to, as well as figuring out what the emerging markets are and how to get there before everyone else does. In a way, this does offer something quite different, simply because most books look to show the reader how to start off with the easy things, and do not go into how to spot trends no one else will.
With insights into how to profit through bearish crowds, understand the psychology of the mass market, and develop the right metrics to understand it all, this could be a good read for anyone looking to branch out with their investment aims.
