My book, Trading Basics, pictured on the left, is the first in a series of three books that guide you through the four trading styles: buy and hold, position trading, swing, and day trading. In your trading career, you'll probably try all of those. The books are a good way to learn the ropes.

If you click on this link and then buy the book (or anything) at, the referral will help support this site. Thanks. -- Tom Bulkowski
