Buy this book

Authored by CEO and Founder of Trading Markets Larry Connors, Short Term Trading Strategies That Work is a must-have book for anyone seeking to improve their trading results in any market condition.

You'll see strategies and methods which you've likely never seen before, all of which are statistically backed by more than a decade's worth of research. Here’s a sample of some of the topics covered:

  • The Best Oscillators for Traders - Do you know which is the best oscillator to use for your trading? In Chapter 9 you'll learn the one oscillator Connors believes is the closest to being ideal. And you'll see the test results when applied to over 77,000 trades since 1995!

  • How to Make Your Trading Edges Even Bigger - Connors explores one simple technique to help make your daily trading edges even greater.

  • Trading with the VIX - Do you use the CBOE’s Volatility Index (or VIX) to time your trades? This books explores numerous ways you can learn to use the market’s so-called “fear index” to improve your trading.

  • The Mind - Trading is as mentally tough as any profession in the world. Connors interviews world-class trading professionals on their own psychological training, how to control your emotions and stay resilient as you trade.
