Steve Ruffley has been involved in the finance industry for 15 years and is currently chief market strategist and head of education at InterTrader. In his Ruff Guide to Trading, he shows you the markets through his eyes. He reveals how he sees trading as a whole, how he assesses and exploits trading opportunities, and how he thinks about risk. He also describes three of his winning strategies.
The focus of the Ruff Guide is intraday trading; everything covered relates to finding and making money from short-term trading opportunities that arise as part of everyday market moves.
At the heart of Steve Ruffley's approach is a very simple 80-20 rule for understanding market movement. This is that market moves are 80% technical and 20% fundamental. He explains the fundamental and technical aspects you need to use to get the right balance in your market analysis and shows how to put these into practice with examples from real-life market action.
Steve also explains why success at trading first requires you to understand yourself and your fellow traders, and provides guidance to help you gain this understanding.
The Ruff Guide is the result of Steve Ruffley's thousands of hours of trading, charting and teaching experience. Pick it up to follow the simple and accessible guidance of someone who has seen and done it all before.
