From the Inside Flap

Many people perceive trading as nothing more than a gamble—and to many traders it is. But there are still traders who, year after year and month after month, consistently make money trading. How do they do it? They have learned how to separate gambling from trading. And the way they do this, says Marcel Link, is by developing and trading with a proper, well-thought-out plan. In Trading Without Gambling, Link shows how to create and use a sound game plan to improve every aspect of trading—including finding trades, timing, knowing how much to trade, where to exit, and how to adjust risk—while leaving very little to gambling.

Building on the strategies first revealed in his highly successful previous book, High Probability Trading, Link reveals that the key to winning in the markets is planning for it and knowing in advance how to react to certain situations—and this is exactly what a game plan will do for you. Trading is not simply about buying and selling, he explains, but about knowing when and why to do so. Link details the benefits of a game plan in easy-to-understand, straightforward terms, showing how a plan will help you pick the best trades, monitor and exit trades, keep you from overtrading, keep you focused and financially in line, prepare you for what the market has to offer, and ultimately take the gamble out of your buying and selling. Drawing from his twenty years of trading experience, Link offers numerous examples of both his good trades and his mistakes, enabling you to learn from those mistakes and become a better trader in the process.

This book, the author stresses, is not for the lazy trader. You won't find any get-rich-quick strategies here, but you will learn how to work smart and work hard to improve your bottom line. After reading Trading Without Gambling, you'll be in a better position to excel at this difficult endeavor.
