I have read both of Tony's books. I would suggest you need to read his first book 'Stock Trading Wizard' before reading 'The Stock Trader'. The first covers the theory the second the practice. Tony trades large cap NASDAQ stocks in the 15 minute to 6 hour time frame, a cross between day trade scalping and swing trading. Some of his methods can be gleaned from his website at http://www.stockjunkie.com and the campanion page to the book at http://www.stockjunkie.com/companion.htm
The 'The Stock trader' covers Tony's trades (all long) in detail for four weeks (starting March 20 2000). A total 116 trades with a win ratio of 64.6% and a return of 33% on inital capital of $50k. Over this period the NASDAQ was down over 30%.
