When it comes to trading what makes a winner? Is it inborn, or can it be learned? Is there a psychological secret? 

Don't worry about looking for the answers. It could take you a lifetime. Learn about what it takes to be a consistent winner instead. It could take you far. With contributions from Bernard Oppetit, Bill Lipschutz, Pat Arbor, Jon Najarian, David Kyte, among others. 

This book explores the trading philosophies, behavior, and tactics of the world's top traders, identifying successful strategies and winning ways in the markets.

It answers the question "what makes a great trader?" and "how can I profit from what they know and do?"

Interviewees include: Bill Lipschutz(former managing director and global head of foreign exchange, Salomon Brothers); Bernard Oppetit (global head of equity derivatives, Banque Paribas); Pat Arbor (chairman, Chicago Board of Trade); Jon Najarian ("SuperTrader", director, Chicago Board Options Exchange); Phil Flynn (vice president, Alaron Trading); Paul RT Johnson, Jr. (senior vice president, ING Securities, Futures & Options); Neal T. Weintraub (floor trader and author of Tricks of the Floor Trader), and many more.

The mental processes leading to trading excellence and profit are described within this book from the mouths of those that experience, live, breathe, and love the markets. What do top trading strategies and minds have in common? How can the listener use this information to his or her own advantage and profit?

I do not want a single trading listener to close any chapter and feel, "what relevance does this have to me?" The naive believe there is a secret to trading success, and they search for it, but in the wrong places, such as expensive trading programs. With experience they realize that the only secret to success is hard work and talent, and they stop looking for any other secret. Finally, with wisdom, they stumble across the secret to trading success without even searching or realizing it.
