Jeffrey A. Hirsch, Editor–in–Chief, Stock Trader s Almanac


In Profitable Day and Swing Trading and its companion video, acclaimed trader Harry Boxer breaks down successful strategies in his easy–to–understand style. He explains how to recognize chart patterns, identify trades, and execute entries and exits that will maximize profits and limit losses. Boxer also reveals his concept of price–volume surges as the key to recognizing the most lucrative trades. Throughout the book, he describes his routine for preparing for each trading day, selecting stocks to monitor, and how he keeps track of prices and executes trades.

This indispensable resource also includes the strategies for opening range gaps, the breakouts, and the techniques that have sustained Boxer during his storied Wall Street career. Most notably, the book reveals how to trade rising channels following an opening gap or high–volume breakout. This comprehensive resource provides real–world insights and strategies from a Wall Street legend that can be profitably applied by investors of all levels.
