Kroll made a name and a fortune by running up an $18,000 stake into a $1 million jackpot during the 1970s. He has worked as a commodity specialist for Merrill Lynch and operated his own commodity clearing firm. His previous books include The Commodity Futures Market Guide and The Professional Commodity Trader.

The war stories make this book enjoyable. Kroll dissects the charts of both his and others successful and disastrous trades. He uses a down-to-earth, common sense approach to answer the eternal questions of the trader: How do you emotionally handle the uncertainty of trading? (Kroll often goes fishing to regain his composure.) Which technical tools are best? How do you turn a good idea into cash?

Kroll's favorite strategy is to participate only in strongly trading markets, as he has made all his large wins by participating in major bull or bear moves. Like most modern traders, he uses both charts and computerized trading systems. Kroll uses a dual market approach, first focusing an opinion as to whether the commodity being studied is in either a trending or trading range market. J. Welles Wilder's Directional Movement Index is recommended as a degree of trend indicator.
