The Lifecycle Trade

The Lifecycle Trade is the first book I have read that could help an equities trader gain that skill in a methodical and systematic way. Kudos to the authors for putting a bookend to the earlier works by Peter Lynch.

The Lifecycle Trade

The Lifecycle Trade provides unique insight into the behavior of Super Growth Stocks starting with their initial public offerings (IPOs). Using extensive proprietary research, this practical guide contains never-before-published findings that provide revelatory statistics that can help you learn how to find big, winning stocks early. Full color charts and graphics for easy reference. "Which of the following statements are true? 1. 20% of IPOs gain 100% or more within their first year. 2. Over 90% of IPOs eventually trade below their first day low. They are both true! IPOs provide great opportunities, but they are also replete with severe drawdowns that can leave traders with net losses, even for those stocks that are eventual big winners. This succinct volume dispels some of the misconceptions about IPOs and should serve as a useful aid in navigating the treacherous waters of IPO trading and in formulating your own trading plan for these unique stocks." -Jack Schwager, Market Wizards, The New Market Wizards, Stock Market Wizards, Hedge Fund Market Wizards, The Little Book of Market Wizards, Market Sense and Nonsense, Schwager on Futures, Getting Started in Technical Analysis, Complete Guide to Mastering the Markets "As a career futures and forex trader, I have always been intrigued by growth stocks, but never developed the skill to identify the 10X or 20X winners. The Lifecycle Trade is the first book I have read that could help an equities trader gain that skill in a methodical and systematic way. Kudos to the authors for putting a bookend to the earlier works by Peter Lynch." -Peter Brandt, Diary of a Professional Commodity Trader, Trading Commodity Futures with Classical Chart Patterns "A fabulous read for anyone wanting to get an understanding of how to jump on a large, winning IPO and avoid getting ruined by Wall Street's pump-and-dump scheme, which can ruin the average investor." -Dan Zanger, Chartpattern.com, Momentum Masters "An important idea conveyed by Boboch, Donnelly, Krull, and Daill is that stocks follow a Lifecycle Pattern from IPO-infancy to maturation. Understanding where a stock is in its lifecycle provides important clues as to how to trade and invest." -Brett H. Steenbarger, Ph.D. Trading Psychology 2.0, The Daily Trading Coach, The Psychology of Trading, Enhancing Trader Performance, A Trader's Guide to Self-Discipline "After thirty years of managing money, this book has opened my eyes to new ideas and made me realize that there is always more to learn." -James Roppel, Founder and Managing Member, Roppel Capital Management "As a long-time growth stock advisor, I value research that is based in fact and proven through history to give you an edge. That's just what The Lifecycle Trade does. The team has performed exhaustive studies on how IPOs act after they come public, and they identify easy-to-understand patterns and guidelines to take advantage of that action. It's an eye-opener and sure to help any investor who wants in on new, exciting growth situations." -Mike Cintolo, Chief Analyst, Cabot Growth Investor and Cabot Top Ten Trader "The Lifecycle Trade is a great research tool for stock traders to add to their knowledge toolkit. One can always learn more about trading and the markets, and this book offers valuable guidelines. The selling points and rules are especially insightful since selling is usually the greatest challenge to the trader. I would suggest everyone read The Lifecycle Trade and expand their market research knowledge." -John Boik, Lessons From the Greatest Stock Traders of All Time, How Legendary Traders Made Millions, Monster Stocks

The Little Book of Investing Like the Pros

As you have probably noticed, there are quite a few investing books out there. Many of them were written by some of the world's greatest investors. So, why should you read our book? Stock investing is more prevalent than ever, whether directly or indirectly through brokerage accounts, exchange-traded funds, mutual funds, or retirement plans. Despite this, the vast majority of individual investors have no training on how to pick stocks. And, until now, there hasn't been a truly accessible, easy-to-understand resource available to help them. The Little Book of Investing Like the Pros was written to fill this void. We believe the simplicity and accessibility of our stock picking framework is truly unique. Using real-world examples and actual Wall Street models used by the pros, we teach you how to pick stocks in a highly accessible, step-by-step manner. Our goal is straightforward—to impart the skills necessary for finding high-quality stocks while protecting your portfolio with risk management best practices. Our practical approach is designed to help demystify the investing process, which can be intimidating. This training will help set you apart from others who are largely flying blind. Pilots require extensive training before receiving a license. Doctors must graduate medical school, followed by a multi-year residency. Even those providing professional investment advice require certification. But, anyone can buy a stock without any training whatsoever. While buying stocks on a hunch and a prayer may not endanger your life, it can certainly put your finances at risk.

In his usual straightforward style, bestselling author Ed Ponsi guides you through the twists and turns to show you what really matters when it comes to making money.

Technical analysis translates to any form of trading, and this book delivers clear, jargon-free guidance toward interpreting the various charts you'll see in the field. Technical analysis can be confusing. Volatility, cycles, Elliot waves, Fibonacci, trends—it's easy to get lost, and most of the available literature is incomprehensible to all but the experts. This book is different—it's technical analysis for the rest of us. You'll see through the language to understand the underlying concepts, and how to apply them correctly. Learn what true technical analysis entails Discover the tools that simplify accurate analysis Master the tactics and strategies used by the pros Develop a valuable trading skill that transcends markets Simply recognizing the vocabulary isn't nearly enough, and a passing acquaintance with the topic is guaranteed to do more harm than good. When technical analysis methods are used incorrectly, they are ineffective at best, and actively destructive to your bottom line at worst. Technical Analysis and Chart Interpretations cuts through the confusion to give you a firm understanding and the skills to apply it correctly.

Market Wizards  Interviews with Top Traders

THE INVESTMENT CLASSIC "I've read Market Wizards at several stages of my careeras it shows the staying power of good down-to-earth wisdoms of truepractitioners with skin in the game. This is the central documentshowing the heuristics that real-life traders use to manage theiraffairs, how people who do rather than talk have done things.Twenty years from now, it will still be fresh. There is no otherlike it." —NASSIM N. TALEB, former derivatives trader, author ofThe Black Swan, and professor, NYU-Poly "Market Wizards is one of the most fascinating books everwritten about Wall Street. A few of the 'Wizards' are myfriends—and Jack Schwager has nailed their modus operandi onthe head." —MARTIN W.

Butthe toughest task of all is turning analysis into money. If youdon't believe it, try it.

They are heroes of WallStreet, and Jack Schwager's book brings their characters vividly tolife." —ROBERT R. PRECHTER, JR., Editor, The Elliott WaveTheorist
