Advance Praise For Beat The Machines
“What a delight to survey the financial markets with a financial market veteran who’s seen it all, done it all, and met everyone. David crams a lifetime of experience into a fast paced, easy to read book. Grab it!”
-Steve Wisdom, Portfolio Manager, Crabel Capital Management
“If you want to beat the machines, you need many diverse disciplines of thought to accomplish that goal. David does a great job exploring these areas and also helps readers to understand the many pitfalls that await them on their journeys to profitability. Highly Recommended!”
–Baron Robertson, Founder Elite Trader.com
Great book, David! Beat The Machines is truly an invaluable book for investors of all experience levels. I deeply value the importance that you as well as several of your interview subjects place on back-testing. This alone is worth the price of admission. I have always believed that a strategy that has not been properly back-tested is nothing more than an opinion! If I could stress one thing, it would be to back-test. Your book helps make that abundantly clear.
-Thomas Trott, Founder Light Bridge Capital Management, LLC
It’s been a VERY long time since I’ve read such a comprehensive yet truly readable and enjoyable book about the financial markets and more specifically all the various tactics traders must consider when risking their hard-earned money. David has done a great job rounding everything up, along with some very telling stories and interviews with some of the world’s most successful hedge fund managers too, this is a MUST READ for any new and even experienced trader in any market!
-Timothy Sykes, Trader & author of An American Hedge Fund
I hesitated writing this endorsement because if every reader followed these tactics in a disciplined manner, my job would be so much more difficult.
