The Wallaby Trade: Counter-Trend Trading for Stocks, Futures, and Forex
In this step-by-step (and always entertaining) guide, a proven counter-trend trader shows real-world examples of how to identify and profit from the warning signs that short-term and long-term trends are reaching a conclusion. The trading style is called "The Wallaby Trade," and it's the most complete book available on the subject of using divergence to trade against the crowd.
If you are a trend-follower, then this book contains essential strategies and techniques for entering a trend on critical "pullbacks," and if you're a straight-up contrarian, Rob demonstrates powerful examples of divergence that serve as low-risk entries before the biggest moves in the financial world.
When the crowd realizes that the party is over, where will you be? This book isn't about the general concept of trading against the masses, but rather a practical guide suitable for new and experienced traders alike. The chapters move fast and the book doesn't waste any time: Lots of examples, clear rules, and brutal honesty on every page.
