book from IB wanted

  1. Does someone who recently received the book "Trading & Exchanges" by Larry Harris from IB wants to sell it to me?

    If you are from Europe and do not need the book pm me.


  2. What's so special about this specific book? Couldn't you just purchase it from some store/website? I received the book yesterday but haven't had time to look at it.

    -FastTrader :)
  3. Not much. I received it from IB and have read (skimming some parts) the thing. I'd be hard pressed to recommend the book to anyone who is not taking Harris' "Introduction to Markets" (or whatever it's called) course; in which case the book is probably required anyway.

    In short, not much useful information for traders, at least not for traders who have been trading for more than a year or two (in which case they will already know 95% of the material contained in the book).
  4. Ok, so who wants to sell it to me!? :)
  5. Make me an offer I can't refuse and the book is yours :D

    -FastTrader :p
  6. no one?
  7. The book is usesless.
  8. I'm still accepting offers. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Post your offer now before it's too late (and I end up throwing it away :D)

  9. "Will ship to United States, Canada"

    Slight problem, I am in Europe!
  10. I think its the best book on markets and how they actually function to be published in some time. It was certianly better than the text book I had in college in my introduction to financial markets course. That one was mostly math, this book is stuff you can actually use. Not specificially in the sense of patterns or trading setups, but it lets you understand the players involved in trading, how they operate and things like crossing sessions, how the specialist interacts with others on the floor as well as superdot, and ofcourse a lot of more esoteric stuff as well.

    I guess everyone here is way smarter than me because I learned quite a few things from it that I didn't know and I've been trading for several years.

  11. Don't get desperate my friend :)
  12. seems like a very informative book, excellent title

    take a look at all those endorsements
  13. They are still being sent out, I received mine in London today.
  14. get and read the koran
    its much better than any fuckin book that ib offers
  15. ... and hows that suppose to improve my trading?
  16. Well put. I would agree. I'm about half way through the text. Most everything so far has been foundation and basics, but it is very thorough and the some of the sidebar stories are pretty amusing, especially the one about the guy who was frontrunning himself. This is designed as a college text, and reads as such - but it is written very well.

    It seems that some here are looking for that "Holy Grail of Trading" book. The one book that will lead to their unlimited fortunes. For the rest of us, IB is pleasing "some of the people all the time."
  17. With a pitch like that, you must be an MM?
  18. Yep, it's a buyer's market. I will wait untill it starts bottoming out (and somebody is willing to ship to europe).
  19. what about ebay? good place for sale?i did find any sellers of this book there

    Thank you!
  20. Sold it on half.com for 40 bucks.


    It teaches how the markets and exchanges operates from my browsing. It teachs little if anything on how to make trading profits.

    I've read many trading books. I just sold this one.

    But I'm a guy who has been trading for almost 10 years, and I pretty much have no clue as to how, for example, Level II works. I just know it does and how to scalp it and read it from experience.
  21. if he trade 1-5 day swings or some daily\weekly frames -it not necessary IMHO to now how it works.
    i don't want to spend my time,reading what exactly happens,when Martha pick up the phone and place order.:D :D :D
  22. get and read the Torah,

    it teaches better business principles than any other .....
  23. Never recieved mine!
  24. Mine arrived (in UK) yesterday...I guess its still being sent out...
  25. Croatia get's there's next month.
  26. I heard from IB that 8000 books were sent out.
  27. actually over 8K. i believe the last of them were sent out this week which means some are on the proverbial slow boat to China.
  28. Well, I for one was glad to get the book. Tell IB thanks for me, def.
  29. LOL! Flattery won't keep your TWS from acting up. Just kidding. Thank you IB.
