Carley Garner’s book Higher Probability Commodity Trading offers a functional and realistic starting point for trading commodity futures and options. Her introductions to different types of technical analysis helps to remove some of "mystery" of chart interpretation and in pattern identification. Often we need to be reminded that trading futures has big advantages but not without some significant risks. Carley’s book underscores the axiom that being forewarned is being forearmed. In other words, gather as much practical information before you press the button and then keep educating yourself throughout your trading life. Many of the books I read regarding trading strategy make fantastic promises or deal in highbrow theory. It’s refreshing to read a book that stresses practicality and fundamental product knowledge. Good luck and trade smart and safe.
