Ships from and sold by sweethomeliquid2. Gary Smith was bitten by the trading bug at the age of fourteen, and ever since he's thought of little else other than how to make a fortune as a home-based trader. He bought his first stock in 1966, when he was just a college sophomore, and then spent the next two decades unsuccessfully chasing his childhood dream. Finally, in 1985, nearly bankrupt and ready to quit, Gary Smith had an epiphany that changed everything-and since then he hasn't had a losing year and rarely even a losing month.

Gary Smith offers his simple trading strategy, without the complex indicators or heavy charts, that can be used by anyone anywhere to make a killing and earn a living. How I Trade for a Living is divided into 5 main parts.

In this book Gary talks about his evolution as a trader from futures to mutual funds. He now primarily trades mutual funds. I have read this book four times. I think it is tremendous. Unlike so meany writers, Gary approaches the subjext with real world experience and a dose of humility. Of interest is the fact that he does not use a quote feed, and only uses his computer to visit message boards (he even calls in all his trades). It just goes to show that there are a million ways to trade successfully, you just have to find the one that fits your style.

Gary Smith's How 1 Trade for a Living does not attempt to instruct readers

Gary Smith's How 1 Trade for a Living does not attempt to instruct readers. Instead, it offers the author's story of "trading zero turned trading hero," with the intention that readers will learn to instruct themselves. The title of the book hints toward this kind of narrative, but many authors fall short of this "conversational" goal.

Reviews about How I Trade for a Living (7):

This is the best book ever written on trading. Gary tells all without sifting through charts and he tells which books he read and what he learned. Capital preservation, quickness in decision and the ability to change direction if he is wrong. Reviews the indexes for the largest up trend and gets on board. He even discloses how much he made on a monthly basis which is amazing. His section on junk bonds has no equal in any publicaton. This gem will help you generate income and give you the confidence on how to trade. At one point Gary was averaging $14,000 a month and kept his losses under $2,000 per month. What a track record .Thank you Gary, I owe you a lot for writing this book.

There are tons of trading books out there, but this is book to me is very special. The reason? It was written by a guy who tried for many years to succeed, ran up against a wall for 19 years, and finally broke into the profit zone. Even more important, it was written by someone who has a verified trading account, with a performance that shows what compounding can do over the course of years. I don't know who else has such verified results!

This book is the testimony of a real trader who trades for a living, who managed to learn the big secret to success - learning from failed trades, and setting concrete goals (in Smith's case, to be profitable every month), while eliminating the urge to get rich quick. Once those things happened, he emerged from break even land to excellent profitability. Smith managed to intra-day trade the S&P futures contract (full size) on a $2200 account over the telephone, without any computer charts (I wonder how many traders could do that today?). Once he built his account up to a respectable six figure size, he began swing trading mutual funds.

Smith has his own views of the market and method of trading. That may or may not work for you, and Smith makes no attempt, as he said, to create a "Gary Smith clone" out of you. He is just sharing his way of doing things, and you are free to borrow whatever you like.

Smith also attacks trading vendors and all the BS that they peddle. Very few, if any, books make such a bold attempt at exposing the truth about them.

Two reasons why four stars and not five: first, the book is not as well organized as it could be, especially the area where strategies are discussed. There's almost a rambling style to them, which is okay but its not something a beginning trader can comprehend. Second, come on Smith, you're so anti-technical analysis yet you use the McLellan oscillator and the advance decline line for your trading strategies? What is that if not technical analysis? Plus, if you're such an anti-chartist, why do we have price charts in your book? A review of language would be appropriate here.

Bottom line, get this book if you want evidence that you can trade for a living, and see what struggles it took a person to get there (struggles which you can avoid!) As for the strategy part, its a bit advanced talk for a beginning trader, but it might give you some interesting ideas. Overall, a highly recommended read.

I have re-read his chapter on Nitty Gritty of Trading more than 10 times since first encountering this book in my local library in 2002. Learnt immensely from his identification of V-Bottom Reversals, "Sick days", and tight rising channels.. among several others. I still follow him actively on the various trading forums but he is posting less and trekking more nowadays. He's still up every year since writing this book I understand. Thank you Gary - you have made me a much better trader/investor.

I hope Gary Smith reads this review. I was a floor trader at the Chicago Board of Trade and the Mid-Am in the 1990's before I moved over to the Chicago Stock Exchange and finally to trading from my home. Gary Smith was something of a legend among floor traders who weren't scalpers or "locals", but swing and position traders. Anyone who has made their living as a real trader, someone who holds positions for longer than three seconds(unlike most scalpers who are being handed money from floor brokers), knows how difficult it is to survive and prosper in the world of trading. Gary Smith's story is not only dramatic and entertaining, but true. The man put in his time and paid his dues before the light went on, bringing him much trading success and personal satisfaction. People may read this book and think it's arcane or obtuse when Gary explains his trading methods. REMEMBER THIS: there is no magic theory, no one answer, no single system or indicator that can bring you success as a trader. Sadly, no one but YOU can ever figure it out. Perhaps Gary Smith's greatest message to any struggling trader is never give up. If you put in the work you can make it. Thanks Gary for inspiring me many times.
