Trade to Win: Proven Strategies to Make Money


Praise for Trade to Win

Tom's book Trade to Win brings discipline to the art of trading and teaches us how to block out the static and concentrate on what's important to be a successful trader. Anyone wanting to learn how to be a successful trader needs Tom's insight into futures strategies and market psychology to maneuver through today's markets.
—Norman Blake, Sr. Vice President, Stanford Financial Group

A good read for any investor. What I found most valuable was Tom's discussion of trade management. Post-trade decision making is critical for successful trading.
—Alex Jacobson, Education Officer at the International Securities Exchange (ISE)

In Tom Busby's newest book Trade to Win, Pearl of Wisdom #6 advises the trader 'Do not worry about the direction the market goes. Go with the market.' As a marginally successful stock trader for several years, I have painfully learned the frustration and difficulty of adhering to this seemingly simple, yet elusive rule. Tom's methods, classes, and books have helped me tame emotional trading and achieve much needed hope and success. This newest book in the DTI arsenal is another valuable chapter in my trading education and anyone seeking success in trading will profit from Mr. Busby's wisdom, experience, and trading discipline.
—Charlie Prince, President, Prince Marketing Inc.

This is a real hands-on for all new traders to gain knowledge of the life and psychology of veteran traders. It provides the skills needed to survive in today's volatile markets. I highly recommend this book.
—Fausto Pugliese, President, CyberTrading University

THOMAS L. BUSBY has been a professional trader and broker since the early '80s, working with Merrill Lynch and Smith Barney. Since its founding in 1996, the Diversified Trading Institute (DTI) has grown into one of the most successful trading schools in the world. After enormous success early in his career, Busby lost almost everything in the 1987 stock market crash. Following that experience, he developed a low-risk, short-term trading method that consistently generates profits and is the basis of the DTI curriculum. Busby is also the author (with Patsy Busby Dow) of The Markets Never Sleep and Winning the Day Trading Game, both from Wiley.

PATSY BUSBY DOW is an attorney, trader, and former educator. She is currently employed by the Diversified Trading Institute as a staff writer.
