Swing Trader Guide Review

When I first saw the sales pages, I thought Swing Trader Guide may be worth a further look as there were many big claims such as being “The definitive guide to swing trading”. Quite a big claim, isn’t it?

I initially downloaded the free sample ebook. This is basically the first four chapters of the paid ebook with a sales pitch at the end.

The content in the sample wasn’t bad, the author talks about the elementary topics such as the basic rules of trading and a look at exactly what swing trading is. Not bad, but not really anything you can’t find for free on this website and many others out there.

After I bought the ebook, I was given a link to download a 124meg file. The file contained:

The full Stock Trader Guide 96 Page ebook.

9 additional bonus ebooks on titled:

  • A Basic Trading Course & Advanced Concepts & Tools
  • 7 Habits of a Highly Successful Trader
  • Trading the 10 O’clock Bulls
  • The 1-2-3 Trading Signal
  • The Penny Stock Trading System
  • Ultimate Trading Systems 2.0
  • Day Trading Mind
  • The Pocket Book of Economic Indicators
  • The E-Book of Technical Market Indicators

A trading calculator and a spreadsheet to help track your trades. There are also some videos that explain how to get the most from these tools.

Now let’s get back to the ebook. I spent a few hours reading it and have to admit it has taught me a few things.

It starts off slow talking about many of the topics on this site such as moving averages, risk management, technical analysis, fundamental analysis and a few things that are not mentioned on this site yet like technical indicators and pivot points. Though as much as I don’t really want to admit it, he has gone into a lot more detail than I have on this site.

As the book continues the author discusses these important topics:

  • How to build a watch list of stocks that meet basic trading requirements
  • How to identify which stocks are in a trending state
  • How to identify good entry points
  • How to enter a position at the appropriate price, with the best entry order
  • Where to place stops

The author does a very good job of explaining these topics, showing you how to place orders that have a good chance of being successful.Now i’ll talk a little about the 9 free ebooks included in the price. As these were just “bonus” ebooks, I wasn’t expecting too much. I have to admit though, I was pleasantly surprised, some of them are high quality. The sale pitch claims they are were $230 combined.

This is a fair valuation for them in my opinion. I could give you an overview of each one, but the sales page does a better job than I could.

And now onto the free tools. The ultimate trading calculator is a useful little tool that lets you input data about your entry prices, stops and profit targets. It will then give you a variety of information about your planned trade such as risk/reward ratio, potential profit and equity at risk.

The second tool is an excel spreadsheet that lets you enter your trades to help you keep track of your winners and losers. This tool can be useful for analysing your trading results. Don’t worry if you don’t have Microsoft Excel, it runs fine on openoffice that can be downloaded free here.

Money Back Guarantee

This is always a good sign in my book. Swing Trader Guide comes with a “No questions asked 60 day money back guarantee”. If the ebook does not improve your trading results or you are not happy for any reason, you get your money back.


I started the review of by talking about the claim of being the “definitive guide”. Do I feel it is definitive, in a word no. However, that said, I like Swing Trader Guide and do feel it is worth the money. I also like the ironclad money back guarantee.

If you are a beginner to intermediate trader, the ebook will probably teach you a lot and should improve your trading results. There is also a lot of bonus content and there’s the trading tools. So for these reasons I have to conclude it is worth the $97.

Overal rating 4/5
