The easiest way to learn from people that have achieved that you want to is by reading their books. A lot of successful traders have written about their strategy. They explain how they’ve been able to turn a few buck into millions.
But their all focused on one specific success. Momentum Masters takes a different approach. It has gathered 4 super traders in performance and asked all of them the same questions. The great thing is that you get a selection of different opinions and views on every subject.
I’ve read Momentum Masters for the first time in just one evening. Since then I’ve already read it a couple of times more, and making a lot of notes while reading.
This book is a great addition to every trader’s books library.
There is so much information inside that you must take the time to not only read it through, but really study the answers of all momentum masters.
The book is made of 130 real questions that Mark Minervini were asked by followers of him.
Instead of answering all questions to each of askers themself, he create this book to answer all the questions.
He even added 3 more super traders to answer the same questions for you. Now you not only have Mark’s answers, but also from David Ryan, Dan Zanger en Mark Ritchie II.
They’re all supertraders that have made an incredible performance in the stock market.
The best about having four super traders answering the same question is that you easily can find the similarities and differences.
By seeing the similarities of all the best things they all four us in their trading you can easily say that if that works for all of them, it will most likely be true for you as well.
Looking at the differences between the four of them you’ll be able to see more angles on a particular thing from all great traders.
So the one answer is not better or worse then the other, for each of the traders it has proven to fit their approach the best.
You’ll learn more about these differences because you’ll start to search for the one answer that fits you own style the best.
So who are those super traders taking place at the round-table to answer the questions?
