Support this blog - buy my book!!

My new book, "The Art of Contrarian Trading", has just been published by John Wiley and Sons.

In it I explain what it takes to get a trader's edge in the market. And I take you through the last 20 years of market ups and downs, explaining in detail how I used my media diary to track information cascades and identify contrarian trading opportunities.

My book is NOT about short term trading - the kind I do on this blog. But it does describe an approach to markets that even short term traders need to use to set up their trading context.

As it happens, I am in the planning stage for a second book, tentatively titled "Tape Reading - Theory and Practice". But I need my current book to sell well so that I can find a publisher interested in my tape reading book.

So, buy my book from your favorite bookseller - and tell all of your friends to do the same! Let's see how high we can drive it on Amazon's best seller list!

Carl, congrats on your new book! I will certainly order it. I have been following your blog and I must say you are on top of the market majority of time. I hope to learn short term trading from you. If your second book covers your analysis on short term trading as found on this blog it will be great!

Carl
I apreciate your work and candor.
Keep me in mind for the 2nd book should the 1st book stumble (which I doubt).
I helped a friend years ago(Spinoffs by Joe Cornell)at John Wiley, if a thousand copies are required per printing; let me know.
