The Logical Trader: Testimonials
The Gartman Letter, L.C.
I have been actively involved in the markets (foreign exchange, equities, derivatives) since the early 1970s -- as a trader on the CBOT floor in the bond and note "pits," as a foreign exchange dealer at a large multi-national bank, as the head of a bank's futures broking operation, as a reasonably widely known analyst of the world capital markets writing a daily commentary on these markets, and as a trader on my own. I've read a myriad number of "how to" books on trading, most of which have proven to be of little merit, if any.
However, from the outset, reading and understanding Mark's insights into his ACD system in The Logical Trader, I've learned methods of trading that I probably understood intuitively but now understand logically and with almost numerical rationality. The reading may be difficult for the beginning trader, but the lessons learned will be immediately beneficial; of that I am certain. I strongly endorse this book for the beginning and for the professional trader alike.
