One Good Trade: Inside the Highly Competitive World of Proprietary Trading by Mike Bellafiore

Description

One Good Trade: Inside the Highly Competitive World of Proprietary Trading is a weapon that a trader should arm himself with before going to the battlefield – the financial market and win the ultimate battle – trading. 

Mike Bellafiore lays down his armor in trading in this book. He gives away the principles and strategies that get him through the harsh and highly volatile market throughout his trading career. He tells all this by narrating how he shared those techniques to a group of individuals that he shared his company with. After reading this book, traders will arrive at the following realizations:

  • Develop the skills that are crucial to successful trading which include the qualities that constitute a “One Good Trade”;
  • Identify key characteristics that separate a profitable trader from an underperforming trader; and,
  • Learn from the stories of traders who became successful and those who lost the game of trading and the reasons behind their success and failure.
