Product description


I couldn't put this book down! Brent has done an amazing job capturing the challenges that traders face on a daily basis and how best to navigate today's markets.

It is an essential read for anyone who is interested in managing money and the behavioral psychology behind those who "make the market!" Brent shows himself to be as skillful an author as he has been one of the leading players in global foreign exchange! Well done!

- Ben Melkman, founder and CIO of Light Sky Macro

Brent has been on my must-read list for years. This book is no exception. ALPHA TRADER is an instant trading classic.

- John Mauldin, president of Mauldin Economics

Alpha Trader is one of the most intuitive books about applied trading psychology and rational behavior. It is a masterpiece that puts you in control of your trading.

- Saed Abukarsh, partner at Ark Capital Management (Dubai)

Brent is a smart, balanced and hyper-pragmatic trader. I have known and worked with him for years, and his constant search for new paradigms is what sets him apart. ALPHA TRADER is a very, very valuable book which may save young (and old) traders from significant emotional (and monetary) pain.

- Jens Nordvig, world-renowned currency strategist and founder of Exante Data

Brent's book is an honest assessment of what is required to be successful in the markets. Successful traders have a process that is not canned or rigid... Because markets are not.

If you are serious about making it as a full-time trader, ALPHA TRADER is the book you need to read. It's an honest take on what you will need to do and expect to make it like a pro.

- Dave Floyd, founder of the Aspen Trading Group
