Publisher Comments:

"If traders plan on making serious money in [the] markets, it will boil down to one thing: how they manage their money. Outside of sheer luck, no one will make a tremendous amount of money.without a proper money management strategy. This is the basis of this book." -from the Preface Not a week goes by that investment experts don't offer us more "winning" trading methods and systems. Some work better than others, but they all seem to stop working sooner or later. To obtain-and maintain-an edge on a regular basis, savvy traders need an effective money/risk management plan. Based on sound trading principles, The Trading Game gives investors proven risk management techniques that are not only easy to understand and apply, but can lead to consistent and regular profits. Written by Ryan Jones, whose seminars on risk management are eagerly attended by traders nationally, this groundbreaking book shows you step-by-step how to increase your trading profits without necessarily increasing the performance of your trading system or method. By using the management techniques described, you can reap greater profits whether the method wins 25 percent of the time, 40 percent of the time, or 90 percent of the time. Unlike other books on risk management that tend to be loaded down with complicated formulas and technical jargon, The Trading Game presents the topic in a way that is clear, concise, and practical. Covering the why's, what's, when's, and how's, it walks you through the entire risk management process with complete details on everything from margin requirements and fixed fractional trading to market weighting and protecting profits. Along with a complete, workable method for making $1 million in five years or less, you'll find straightforward guidelines on determining how many trades to place, analyzing what their maximum drawdowns should be, and combining different markets and different systems for diversification. You'll also learn to assess whether you're a conservative or aggressive trader, what your goals are, and the degree to which you're able to tolerate risk. An invaluable guide for every trader and sophisticated investor, The Trading Game offers a powerful array of solutions to one of the most puzzling problems in trading: how to keep losses small so that profits accrue.

Synopsis:

Nahezu jede Woche veröffentlichen Experten neue Ratschläge, wie man am Aktienmarkt garantiert gewinnt - wann man welche Aktien, Wertpapiere und Optionen kaufen, halten oder verkaufen sollte. Mancher Tip funktioniert in der Praxis, die meisten versagen, und alle gelten nur für einen kurzen Zeitraum. Um langfristig Gewinne zu erzielen, gibt es nur einen Weg: Kapital- und Risikomanagement. Alles, was fortgeschrittene Investoren und Makler darüber wissen sollten, finden sie in diesem Buch. (04/99)

Synopsis:

Clear, concise, and practical, The Trading Game shows you how to harness the power of money management for any trading method "The goal of most futures traders is to make a million dollars as fast and as painlessly as possible. Unfortunately, few traders achieve this goal. In The Trading Game, Ryan Jones demonstrates how the proper application of his new money management strategy, Fixed Ratio Trading, can enable an average trading system to earn spectacular profits. My advice? Don't trade until you've spent as much time and effort on money management as you've spent on developing your entry and exit rules." -Tom Bierovic, Manager System Trading & Development Education, Omega Research, Inc. "Ryan Jones is on the cutting edge of the most important element in the art of speculation-be it stocks or commodities-money management." -Larry Williams, trader and author Long-Term Secrets to Shot-Term Trading "Money management is the most overlooked part of trading but is the key to building enormous wealth. Ryan Jones first overviews classical methods and then discusses a new paradigm which, combined with a reliable trading method, can lead to financial security." -Murray Ruggiero, President Ruggiero & Associates; contributing editor, Futures magazine "At last-a money management book that is not intimidating or boring. Ryan Jones has made a complex subject easier to understand and follow. I am especially excited for all independent traders." -Glen Ring, President, Glen Ring Enterprises editor of the widely respected View on Futures newsletter "Ryan Jones has always been one of the most innovative traders and creative minds in the industry. With the writing of The Trading Game: Playing by the Numbers to Make Millions, he has taken the science of money management and risk control to another level. I wholeheartedly endorse his efforts and recommend this new work required reading to anyone either just entering the trading arena, or already participating in it." -Ted Tesser, CPA and author, The Trader's Tax Survival Guide
