How to Get Started in Electronic Day Trading
By David S. Nassar

It's open season on Wall Street, with advances in technology making it possible for anyone with a computer to point, click and buy or sell a stock in seconds. Traders can also use this technology to help find new profit opportunities through the use of technical analysis and implementation of on line trading systems. Day trading, too, has become increasingly fashionable due to all the affordable new technology, although it can be a risky business.

The potential for reaping profits on as little as 1/8 of a point by implementing many of the new Electronic direct access trading (E-dat) systems continues to be a tremendous lure to the growing ranks of new on-line traders. Coupled with the ability to bypass the middle people, route your orders to the exchange using several different order entry systems, and trade directly with the market makers - more and more people are plunging into this fast-paced trading arena.

But where do you get started? How do you sort through all the new hardware, software and internet systems and develop the skills to stay in this volatile game for the long haul? David Nassar's new book is a great starting point. This step-by-step manual shows how to use your PC and the internet to buy and sell at the very best prices the market has to offer - just like the pros have done for years.

Divided into 3 main parts, the first 5 chapters cover all the basics of electronic trading:

- The major markets and their trading systems
- Ironclad trading rules the E-dat traders
- Navigational tools for the virtual stock market
- Getting an edge using technical analysis
- And, most importantly, how to trade like the NASDAQ market makers so you can run with their profits, rather than being overcome by them.

Chapters 6 through 10 are more strategy oriented. You'll learn to define your trading style and time horizon, so you can perfect trading strategies uniquely suited to your own goals and risk tolerance. Plus, you'll learn to utilize trading systems and identify trends that allow you to benefit from fast-breaking opportunities as well as more predictable trends.

The book concludes with all the how-to's of setting up an electronic stock trading account - from the terminology to finding an E-dat firm - it will help narrow down all the choices you'll be faced with. And Nassar also provides a question and answer section that offers practical advice on a host of situations E-dat traders typically encounter. You'll be able to avoid common mistakes others have experienced and learn how NOT to lose your money.

There has been an explosion of books and articles on electronic day trading in the last few months, as more and more investors are going on line to become masters of the their own trades. This book stands out from the crowd because it's one of the most simple, straightforward, clearly understandable manuals for traders of all levels to be sure they get up and running quickly and for maximum profit. And it's different than most of the others because it details strategies and systems essential to this new frontier, showing traders how to get in - and stay in - for the long term.

E-dat trading will soon be the only way to invest. So, be way ahead of the pack whether the market is bull, bear or sideways - by learning what you need to exploit the market and benefit every single trading day.
