Aiki Trading: Trading in Harmony with the Markets


Jeff has done a terrific job combining the principles of the martial art aikido with his trading strategy. He provides a step-by-step building of his trading strategy while infusing the analogies of aikido. I have had the opportunity to practice and teach Japanese martial arts for over 30 years and the martial art concepts that Jeff presents in his book are right on target! He also presents important concepts that are often overlooked by the beginner trader that are essential to successful trading.

Jeffery Tie's work on trading in harmony or aiki is a most welcome and long overdue addition to the rare literature on eastern philosophical approaches and techniques to markets. Using and fusing the long history of Chinese martial arts philosophy and the Japanese shinkendo swordmanship. His practical how–to book is about how to use the art of aikido to manage one’s trading.

It is rare to find new insights on a subject as extensively covered as trading. Jeffery Tie, educating traders at the Singapore Exchange for nearly a decade, has accomplished this with his work Aiki Trading. Weaving in a martial art perspective along with a bit of history, Jeffery superbly covers the foundational areas of trading one must master. His perspectives on being in harmony are beneficial beyond the world of trading. Aspiring traders and seasoned professionals alike should have this book in their library.

Aiki Trading analyzes the finest techniques and philosophies in two very different disciplines and marries them to produce a study that synergizes the best from both worlds. The mastery of body and self that aikido and shinkendo teach provides piercing insight into the skills and discipline necessary to successfully navigate the often turbulent waters of market trading using technical analysis, demonstrating how understanding of ancient arts can lay the foundation
for lasting prosperity.

Aiki Trading is very easy to read and demystifies a complex subject in a language that would-be traders on the street can easily read and understand. Jeffery Tie's writing style, like that of his martial arts, cuts to the heart of the subject matter—he uses his pen as a bushido's katana in the complex world of trading. All in all a great book for the "would-be trader to the neophyte trader," or the layman on the street that wants to get a grasp of what "this trading caper is all about."
