The idea behind The Lunchtime Trader is simple: If you are working 8-10 hours a day for someone else, making them money, are you at least spending 20 mins a day during your lunchtime ensuring that you are creating wealth for yourself and your family. You are there anyway, you probably have access to a computer and the internet, so why not use the time while munching on your sandwich?
I have to say I didn’t expect it to take off as much as it did. In one year, the book has been translated into Italian, Polish and German with Spanish on the way, and 20,000 copies downloaded.
The markets in the meantime have done what markets do, which is to change. Interest Rates continue to be at historic lows (generally good for stocks) with talk of them rising again; Gold (a play on the rising dollar), Silver and Oil continue to fall, allowing us opportunities to get in at lower prices using VCA (see Chapters 5-7); QE seems to have slowed down but if things turn bad no doubt will resume again; stocks are starting to move more sideways, allowing us good buying and shorting opportunities; China is the talk of the year, with their economy slowing (but still stronger than everyone else let’s not forget) and their currency becoming one of the world’s reserve currencies.
And as ever the more things change the more they are the same for a Lunchtime Trader, who knows how to take advantage of up, down and sideways markets.
I have updated the charts and ensured that the content is simple and fun to read. This is a subject that just doesn’t need to be boring or difficult.
I hope you not only enjoy it but take action on one of the many demo accounts or virtual traders out there, and I hope we get the chance to meet in person at one of our events around Europe.
