Well the idea of writing started when i began this topic actually. But the effectuation will be something for somewhere in a further future.
the priority is my own trading for now. I wont get to the writing part until , everything about my own trading style and techniques is in perfect condition.
Until recently i had not invested in reading US books, although i know the quality of content is better than books in my own language. I made that decision because my method works everywhere but the US. So i'm trying to adjust i few things.
To answer your question, honestly i haven't decided yet because of 2 of 3 things
the intention is to cover all the important stuff that is actually usefull, and cut of all the useless crap stuff. most of the time when you purchase a book , only 10 to 20% is actually of value. wouldn't you prefer to have 1 book that covers everything, instead of having to buy books on several related stuff, without being sure it will be worth the investment.
the idea of combining that with an educational program / face to face training course. where all that is mentioned in the book is put into pratice. Just to make sure what i state in my book someday isn't just talk. I want everyone that actually tries out my book the be able to implement it on his own, and see for yourself with the training course, that when you put the content of the book in pratice it actually will work.
simply because reading books only wont make you a trader.And only doing papertrading by folowing the markets, without any actual knowledge wont get you anywere.
I wont be 'selling' dreams but the idea is i would be offering all the tools neseccary to succeed.
the things that make me doubt of actually charge or not are the following:
1 stocket market, trading, and technical analysis books in my language are mostly just basic stuff. So over here there is potential for selling a book that covers a lot more and goes deeper.
2 most private traders will tell , why should a succesfull trader write about trading, he doesn't need it?
3 and if a writer is an unsuccesful trader, why bother buying a book?
By this logic there shouldn't be any books about stocks, investing, trading on the market.
that doesn't make sense does it?
By all means when a trader is actually writing a book thats because he thinks he has something of value.
the above statements only come from traders who are frustrated and therefor become extremely sceptical, because they dont succeed.
to give an example Jesse Livermore is considered the best there ever was. Why would anybody clame that? livermore went bankrupt and actualy commited suicide. Although the book about the life of jesse livermore is considered the best book there is. Why would anyone state this as the best book , if its about a person that went bankrupt several times??
One other example:
Mark Douglas is considered an authority when it comes to the psychology of a trader. his writing style isn't much tho (to much dragging around), but the message holds a lot of value. many have a problem with him tho, because he wasn't succesfull in trading himself (which he admits in his book). But what did he do? he focused on traders that were succesfull, he followed them, and than compared with other traders, only to see what divides succesfull traders from other traders. His conclusion was that the mindset and psychology made a huge difference. so his books are about his own study of succesfull traders, instead of talking from own experience. I guess not many are actually aware of this.
And you have the morrons too that dare to say i havent learned anything from this book (any psychology book about trading). Yeah sure. A psychology trading book, does not learn you how to trade. But it is an important asset which is often overlooked.
Trading is hard, very hard. ecspecially mentally. who neglects this, wont ever become succesfull. this may sound stupid but it all starts with simple things as respecting your sleeping hours, being in shape fysically, and healthy. how you suppose to perform well on the market, if you dont respect these things. Being sharp and alert is of highest importants.
I appologise for dragging on a bit
