Unlike most books of this genre, How to Get Started in Electronic Day Trading really is a primer. Nassar, who runs his own trading firm, does not presume you have much knowledge about how markets work. Instead, the author provides an excellent overview of the dynamics that drive stock prices and the various kinds of electronic access, as well as the broad strategies employed by successful day traders. In addition to providing information about how to open an E-DAT account, Nassar stresses the importance of developing a focused trading strategy and recommends working with a simulator before risking your hard- earned cash.
