This book is exactly what I was looking. I was not looking for a book on investing, thats what my $70k worth of Finance and Accounting degrees provided. I wanted a book that helped me understand the market and trading better, and this book did very well for me. In fact, it still does well for me.

I finally hit my minimum balance and started conservatively trading away using all of the techniques I could remember. I had a solid exit and entrance strategy, stuck to the 2% loss rule, and avoided the fear/greed aspect of trading. The markets are definitely not easy to read, but this book gives you just enough confidence to navigate the many, many nuances of the trading world. For a complete beginner, I feel so much more confident and have been able to spot the start of a trend almost immediately.

If you are looking for a book on investments, you need to go elsewhere. This is a book on day trading.

This is a book review of A Beginner’s Guide to Day Trading Online by author Toni Turner. In short, I really enjoyed this book.

I am not a professional trader or investor. Just a person with a regular full-time job who was looking to see if some extra income could be made through shorter-term investments. The only experience I have is with directing my own longer-term investments for my retirement account, primarily through Mutual Funds.

I just finished reading through this book once. It is great for novice/newbies to learn about general principles of Day Trading and sound research strategies. All of this is to develop the best trading plan for you, based on your risk tolerance and goals.

The book is written in a way that is easy to understand. Having said that, there is so much information passed along, techniques and strategies, that I plan to go through the book a second time with a focus on things I want to zone in on, more position and swing trades. There is a significant amount of analysis presented.

In the end, just a great book to learn from. It does not promise an instant, get rich scheme, or a magic trick. Any respectable lesson would not promote those things. Instead, very sound information you can choose from.

There is some basic, useful info in here, but if youre looking to actually make money in 2019, find another book or get courses on Udemy.
- The info is often presented in an illogical order.
- She gives very meh strategies basically based on setups, but gives ABSOLUTELY no info on scanners or scanner setting. Doesnt mention TradingView Screener, Finviz, Trade Ideas, or any of them, nor does she show you scanner settings (or give you info to help you figure out scanner settings), so I guess youre just supposed to browse 8k stocks manually to find these setups. She gives absolutely ridiculous advice when she says find some stocks you know the pulse of and keep trading those. Instead of using a screener?!? Are you kidding me???
Again, not useless, some good info in here, but you wont come out of it knowing how to find stocks to trade and the strategies to trade them. Youll have basic candle info, top-down info,etc.
Not impressed. Surprised this book has such a high rating.

Good book. Good overview and realistic strategies to learn as a beginner. Love the fact that shes blunt about her early lack of success and the repetitive references to the difficult psychology of trading. To be honest, Im struggling as well and dont know if Ill continue trading, but her book is spot on and provides very realistic info, warnings, and suggestions to not repeat common mistakes. Did I follow her advice in every way? Nope, and I can show you my losses as a result. Im reading her book for the second time now and debating if I should continue doing this. To those considering Day Trading or Swing Trading, buy the book. Much less expensive then the courses being offered by national organizations...those can head north of $10k for just the basic info she overviews in her book.

I read this book, initially, all the way through. It was very informative and gave me a good understanding of short term investing. Ive since gone back to it, because there are nuggets in there that are very practical and specific. I used one in the swing trade section, about the numbers 2, 3 and 5. I made money. You dont have to learn to read annual reports until you drop, you can just understand the charts and why things happen. When the shorts will jump in. The resistance line and the breakouts. Setting a stop loss. These are all very specific tools, and the reaction can be predicted and the author does offer predictions.

I am impressed with how much useful information the author provides. At this time it is a reference book, for me. I thought it was good upon first read, now I find it even more so as I dig deeper into trading. I have a few battle scars, and my emotions are more settled. Now I can trade more bravely.

Ive never traded a day in my life, however, on my first trade I made $1,008 in less than 10 mins. Was it a flook? Only God knows. This book speaks of the psychology of human behavior and the predictability of the fear that most novice traderd launch themselves without the proper knowledge. This book is awesome!!! Well worth the price. Read it 2,3 or 4 times and prepare yourself well before you begin loosing your hard earned income. Best of luck.

I learned a lot from the first edition of this book and am learning just as much from the second edition. Toni Turner writes in a simple style that does not leave her readers unsure of what they just read. Her tips, based on painful personal experience, can help any trader -- new or otherwise -- to avoid many common mistakes and turn their trading to the profitable side. Dont skip a word of this book.

Considering the subject is quite technical I have found this book easy to understand. Once read it should be used as a reference book because you wont remember it all! Although written for the US stock market the subject transfers well to the UK market, just some of the indices are different. I had already borrowed the book from the local library so know what I was buying.
