Such an approach made it highly appealing to novice and intermediate level traders.

Concerns about trading psychology, risk management, and keys to exponential profits are all thoroughly discussed using the author’s self-made formula and personal insights. It also develops a sense of understanding about how one succeeds in a tight pursuit that only a few people aces.
