This post discusses some of the key lessons that can be learnt from Trading in the Zone by Martin Douglas.The book, and this post, is focused more at shorter term traders / speculators, as opposed to longer term investors.  Although, lessons about better understanding our own psychology and beliefs systems, are applicable to people of all investing time frames.The main focus of this book is…

I know you specifically said UK stocks. However, if you, or anyone else, wants my view on the best charting software for US stocks I'd go for TC2000. You can easily screen through sector indexes and sub-sectors too. Doesn't give you the fundamentals as well as Stocko. JC

The table is from Mark's book.  I'll save you working the figures out... It's a total return for the year, exc divi's, of +189%.  This is with a 46.32% winning percentage and a largest single gain of 30.04%.  I don't get how anyone can argue the other side of this.
