    Big trends in trading has several profitable quantitative strategies for position/ swing trading. They provide the results, charts, and input for Trade station so you can put the trading strategy on you computer and trade with it. Not a bad book for $20. you can get creative and mix a few things and turn the proven strategies into even better ones with a little time and effort.

    The Hedge Fund Edge by Mark Boucher has several very good quantitative strategies.
  6. Thank you guys! I will check them out and decide which one to read first.
  7. Hi Vic,

    With "quantitative" you probably mean little cute recipies that truly work. This in contrast to "qualitative", i.e. vaporous mumbojumbo to make simpletons dream of getting rich the easy way.

    My friend, you're not going to find your "quantitative" stuff for a few bucks. I don't mean to be discouraging, simply giving you my honest advice.

    Be good,
