"Toni Hansen's excellent new book provides a wide range of insights, tools and techniques that will help serious-minded traders at all experience levels. Combining her unique market view with traditional technical analysis, Hansen's well-written narrative addresses all phases of short-term trading development."
"I love the book--the conversational tone, the organization of ideas, and the deep pool of knowledge Toni brings to the subject. Toni builds a house every trader should live in--or at least tour. More than any one aspect of a traderís engagement with the market, her holistic approach leaves a trader better prepared for a lifetime of learning and profiting from any market condition. If I could pair a methodology most aligned with Trade Ideasí decision support and risk management capabilities, it would be Toniís."
