Alexander Elder所写的书让我在投资方面获益非浅。所以，他出的每一本新书都让我如获至宝。但最近的两本书《Entries & Exits》和此书似乎找不到让自己感觉新鲜的有益的内容了。只是在有些细微处有些小小的收获。
他给人启发最大的就是：1、交易记录 2、交易日记 3、2%和6%的资金风险控制方法。进和出，买和卖似乎并不是他的长项。至少他的方法不太适合自己，也可能是国内现有的技术比其先进了不知多少倍。用它的进出方法在国内使用，有可能就相当于拿把钝刀参加枪战。这也是读原版书需要注意的。也许看似新出版的英文原版书，其中的技术却不值一试。

In Sell and Sell Short, Dr. Alexander Elder examines one of the most overlooked aspects of trading and reveals how you can protect and profit from your trades by exiting them the right way. Throughout the book, he explains how to set profit targets and stop-loss orders prior to entering any trade. He also shares real-world examples that show how to manage your position by adjusting your exit points as a trade unfolds. Along the way, Elder also addresses short selling.
The latest book from best-selling author Alexander Elder, Sell and Sell Short, provides important insights into the often-neglected topic of exiting a long position and shorting a weak market. Most traders spend the bulk of their time figuring out what to buy and spend hardly any time at all on when to sell. The truth is mismanaging the back end of trades can be the difference between winning and losing. Based on his long experience as a trader and trading educator, Dr. Elder provides a variety of selling techniques to preserve capital and take reasonable profits in both trending and non-trending markets and for both short-term and long-term positions. Moreover, Dr. Elder explains why traders and investors who limit themselves to long positions are conceding a big advantage to market professionals who are just as likely to go short as go long. Stocks tend to fall much faster than they rise, which means that big profits can be made quickly – if the right strategies are employed. Dr. Elder shows traders how to identify a market top, how to jump on a downtrend, and how to monitor short selling activity in order to better manage a short position. Ultimately, Dr. Elder says active traders should run their trading account much like a hedge fund, holding a changing mix of long and short positions as their view of the market changes. By embracing the advice in this important book, traders will be empowered to capitalize on the markets ups and downs and to move decisively in and out of positions so as to preserve capital and generate superior returns.
