cheers,
I haven't read DT, but several of the other traders in the Puretick.com trading room have said Trading in the Zone is the way to go - I found it very useful and reread parts of it regularly. High Probability Trading by Marcel Link is also good. Hope that helps.

ai've read both DT and Trading in the Zone, i think the latter is much more practical and to the point

mostly 100+ pages of shyte

but a couple of real nuggets hidden inside


as with most trading books, especially those written by egotistical Septics, the real value of this book could have been summed up in 2 or 3 pages ....

Art Simpson (excerpted Phantom of the Pits)

"Herein is the key to being a successful trader. I have learned this over and over again in my trading career. I haven't found one trader to tell me what I am going to tell you. The reason for our agreement to give something back is that all of these big losers are doomed from the start unless they are given the knowledge of what the market can do to them. The blame is within their own responsibility and not anyone else's fault."

tick !

This has been a great book, it is the traders bible.
