Mr. Lewis J. Borsellino wrote a book called The Day Trader: From the Pit to the PC. Mr. Borsellino was one of the biggest, if not the biggest traders of the S&P futures contract at the Chicago Merc.
Mr. Borsellino’s book was interesting only if you are interested in his autobiography. He relates many stories about himself and of his father. The book, however, is a disappointment if you are looking for trading insights. Although he tells you how he made zillions on trades, he never describes ideas, insights, or methods on how he did it.
I am always looking for new ideas to explore and test. Mr. Borsellino’s book, like many other trading books out there, will disappoint you if you are looking for trading ideas.
