Another shorter chapter, right around 30 minutes. I try and keep these reviews honest and not just “rose colored”. So this was probably my least favorite chapter. Though while it did not have much value for me, I think it would serve very new traders well. Most of chapter was reviewing and “hindsight trading” a couple trades that Sykes made that day. He retroactively completed the SSS sheet on trades after closing them out.
This has some value I think to kind of get in the mind of how to approach a trade setup, but for me it was not that engaging.
Best value was in reinforcing the idea of using the SSS to whittle down the number of stocks you watch. I really think that is one of the most powerful parts of this model, while obvoiusly not perfect it creates a framework to get you down to a manageable list of stocks.
Good thing is it was quick so you can pick up the solid tips without spending a ton of time on this chapter.
