What Will YOU Learn from The Stock Trading Handbook?

This is a handbook in the true sense of the word - a guide-book. It is the result of feedback from the participants in Jim Berg’s many workshops and seminars. Combining elements of fundamental and technical analysis can help share traders to enhance both their skills and their returns.

The Stock Trading Handbook helps the inexperienced investor take the first steps to trading successfully plus helps existing traders and investors to increase their performance and profitability. The specific tools for online trading and investing are explained and grouped together in an example of a trading system.

The section on investor psychology will help readers understand how an individual’s personality and beliefs can sabotage their success.

Jim gives step-by-step examples of how to build and refine a personalised trading strategy, using some of the tools from his Trading Strategies with Metastock Home Study Course.

This guide-book combines fundamental and technical analysis for complete novices to experienced traders.

It includes:

  • How The Market Works
  • The Importance of market psychology
  • Money & Risk management
  • Fundamental Analysis explained
  • The role of Technical Analysis - indicators & patterns
  • Profitable trading strategies that really work
  • Self Managed Superannuation Funds
  • Putting it All Together

Louise Bedford, author of 'Trading Secrets' & 'Secrets of Candlestick Charting', Melbourne (review of original book 2002)
"Jim, congratulations on your ebook 'The Stock Trading Handbook'. This 190 page production is the most succinct and all-encompassing treatise on trading that I have ever read.

Your book is written in logical/progressive sequence, and in terms that are easy to understand. This information will enable traders (novice to experienced) to arm themselves with a 'complete' Trading Strategy - vitally essential for trading with confidence and financial success. Exceptional value for money!"

Raymond Spree, private trader, East Malvern, (1st Edition review) 2006
"I am now a full time trader and live by my trading alone, thanks to Jim."

In 2002 I began my trading life with Jim Berg. I bought his book,'The Share Trader's Handbook' (signed and now a collector's item!) and enrolled in his course with Metastock.

The following year I did another course with him. Over subsequent years I have followed him to the Traders Expos and confirmed my beliefs in him and his trading teachings. His presentations at the ATAA here in Melbourne have given me added assurance that I am on the right track.

His teaching ability is outstanding, clear, concise, and consistent. These characteristics were confirmed at the weekend.

Over the years, two of my children have done basic courses with Jim and now my daughter in law Stephanie has joined our family "Jim Berg Fan Club". She too learned much from the weekend and I look forward to comparing notes with her.

I am now a full time trader and live by my trading alone thanks to Jim. He has taught me several cardinal rules:

  • Stop loss discipline
  • Let your profits run
  • Develop a Trading Plan (write it down) and back test it with paper trades to a point where you have confidence in you plan so you are able to implement your trade when under stress of falling prices.

Now 75 years old, my most grateful thanks go to Jim and his team for all you have given me and my family over the years. Best wishes to all traders. Stick to the Rules.
