Trading Book Review of ‘Market Beaters’ by Art Collins:

I have to tell you that I almost didn’t buy this trading book many years ago because of the crappy name and frankly pretty bland cover… but as they say, you can’t judge a book by its cover! I am glad I did and if you can get your hands on a copy then the interviews in this book will absolutely give you new learnings and ideas for your systematic trading! If you have other trading books that you can recommend then please leave me a comment below and I will make a review about it!
