Despite the recent financial turmoil, there are a host of opportunities for traders and investors playing the markets online; indeed, due to the clear failings of the traditional buy-and-hold investment approach, it is anticipated that there will be a substantial movement towards traders/investors taking control of their own investments, and incorporating more short-term strategies into their trading. The online trading boom continues even in a difficult financial climate, with many brokers seeing record trading volumes at the height of market volatility in recent months, and growth is expected to continue when the markets return to relative normality.

The Online Trading Cookbook is a unique resource for busy online traders of all levels. Featuring a variety of short- and long-term trading strategies, the book addresses the need amongst the growing number of those trading and investing from home for solid, low-risk trading strategies which they can incorporate into a busy lifestyle, and which will allow them to balance successful trades with a 9-5 job.

Written by a trader and investor of great experience – Alpesh Patel has been described as the ‘UK’s best-known internet trader’ – the book also carries the authority which anxious traders seek in uncertain times.

The core of The Online Trading Cookbook is supplemented by extremely useful advice on the best trading tools, websites and brokers, the different markets available to trade, tips on risk- and money-management and a final chapter featuring a selection of trading success stories. With a simple yet information-packed layout based on the cookbook format – the ‘ingredients/recipe’ detail the trading strategy, what the trader/investor needs to do, and the tools and preparation required. The results of the strategy are then illustrated using a series of annotated charts with an emphasis on visual content and charting for clear and practical explanation.
