Reviews about the ebook Mastering the Trade 3rd Edition
- Joe Scarboro:
With lots of experience, one learns that sometimes only a sentence or two of a new ebook Mastering the Trade 3rd Edition can render invaluable assistance to one’s understanding. As someone who has made more than $500 mil in investment profits for other people, I do know good work when I see it. Just as John F. Carter says himself, one becomes an expert at using the “squeeze” and trade profitably for a lifetime. Being humble enough to give his employees a share of the limelight speaks well of him.
John Carter has written a third edition for today’s market conditions. I’d been trading for years when someone
recommended the first edition, which turned my trading around. Mastering the Trade 3rd Edition ebook is jam-packed with information that is necessary to know but not mentioned by so many market gurus selling courses.
Strongly advise investing in this book as a way to shortcut the learning curve and prepare the trader for the game.
Immensely readable. I recommend this as a must-have for any trader’s library and THE place to start for newbies,
along with Candlestick Charting Explained. After digestion, my next recommendation would be Jim Dalton’s Markets in Profile – prepare to take notes.
The psychology part was a gem. And it proved a turnaround in my trading career.
I enjoyed the 2nd edition so much that I decided to buy the third edition. It did not disappoint. New sections on psychology, updated charts, new trade setups, and some removed, and Henry Gamble and Danielle Shay Gum write sections for Mr. Carter. These are traders who literally learned to trade from scratch using the techniques taught in Mastering the Trade 3rd Edition ebook. They were able to become profitable in short order as well. There is a lot of fluff out there in the financial bookstore world – this book is the real deal. John Carter has probably taught more people to successfully trade than anyone else through his simplertrading.com website.

Must-read ebook for any person serious about making money in the financial markets Mastering the Trade 3rd Edition.
- Weston Stander:
Good mix of the trader’s psychology, with some moderately entertaining biographical elements, and real trading strategies. There are lots of actual examples of each strategy (not fake ones) that were useful for me to get the exact idea right. Very helpful. Psychology is very accurately described as well. I feel like some people in this field publish books only as marketing material to get you to buy their service, but this is not at all one of those ebooks. That said, I traded with his group for a while and they are a great group and run a no-nonsense business. They share their full thoughts, exact trades in and out, and are unusually nice people! There is more promotion of every new seminar, etc for sale than I prefer, but I also understand that is their business. Anyway, the book is a pleasant read and very useful.Good online supplementary videos as well.
However, I disagree with his suggestion that it’s ok to trade options without knowing much about them. They are complex, highly leveraged trading instruments that can move fast due to factors you should understand.

Very interesting ebook Mastering the Trade 3rd Edition,
A bit expensive the price for someone who works for £8 an hour, but I don’t regret it.😃
- Paul DeBusschere:
This book is amazing !!! Out of the dozens of market books I have read, this ebook has been the only one that has trading strategies I can put to use to make money consistently. I’ve bought several other copies to give to family members, that’s how much it impacted me.
- Jeff Serbin:
I see a lot of negativity in the reviews. I think this is an excellent ebook Mastering the Trade 3rd Edition. One thing to remember is this ebook was written in 2005, since then the markets have changed a lot and not all of the strategies can be used the same.
In this ebook, he talks about many strategies that he has used over the years and shows how they set up in charts.
Does that mean you can just copy it? No, it isn’t that easy. As far as his website and the availability of his paid indicators.
If you don’t want them, then don’t use them. He has a free daily newsletter that has a lot of great information. But you have to remember it is all theoretical, the markets change all the time. Not everything they go over is correct and not all of their predictions come true.
However, the book and his videos are great learning tools. Even if you don’t follow some of his strategies it is cool to see how other traders look at charts and indicators. In his free videos he sometimes gets a little salty on his indicators and training sessions but, once again, just ignore it if you don’t want it.
I found his ebook to be a great learning tool and I will continue to pay attention to the strategies that he uses.

I’ve been following John Carter for years and have been a monthly subscriber to his trading room for quite some time. Mastering the Trade 3rd Edition ebook sums up much of his journey and trading methodology. A must-have for any serious options/equities/futures trader.
