Summary

A history of the Ohio railroad car and equipment company and its 16-year run. 
 
Entering an already crowded and established industry, the Niles Car & Manufacturing Company in Ohio began business with surprising success, producing well over 1,000 electric and steam railway cars—cars so durable they rarely needed to be replaced. That durability essentially put the company out of business, and it vanished from the scene as quickly as it had appeared, leaving little behind except its sturdy railway cars. The story of this highly regarded company spans just 16 years, from Niles’s incorporation in 1901 to the abandonment of railway car production and sale of the property to a firm that would briefly build engine parts during World War I. Including unpublished photographs and rosters of railway cars produced by the company and still in existence in railroad museums, The Electric Pullman will appeal to railroad enthusiasts everywhere. 
 
Praise for The Electric Pullman 
 
“Required reading for anyone interested in interurban history. It holds additional appeal for those interested in Ohio history or the junction point between business, society, and technology.” —Lexington Quarterly 
 
“Although not one of the major manufacturers in its field, the Niles company produced some notable and well-remembered equipment during the height of the electric interurban railway era. Indeed, among some interurban railway historians, Niles cars are sacred objects. As such, its story deserves to be told and theoretically would be a logical complement to IUP’s books on the Brill and Jewett companies. Brough himself is a serious historian who knows his subject and has clearly mined all the sources that seem to exist.” —Herbert H. Harwood, Jr., author of The Railroad that Never Was and The New York, Westchester & Boston Railway

    Part 1: Introduction to Swing Trading
     
    Swing trading is too fast for investors and too slow for day traders. It takes place on a timeframe in which you will find very few professionals traders.
     
    Swing traders usually use 4-hour charts. This period falls exactly between that of the investor and the day trader. As a swing trader, you are prone to sit on the fence, and that's good, because here you are almost alone.
     
    This eBook describes the swing trading method of the HeikinAshi Trader. It is ideal for individual investors who do not want to sit all day in front of the computer screen.

    In this first book, he explains his setup with many practical examples. You will learn how to interpret Heikin-Ashi charts correctly, when to get into a market and when to get out. Also, you will learn how to combine the setup with important principles of technical analysis.
     
    This highly effective scalping strategy can be applied in a short time frame; for instance, a 1-minute chart in addition to other higher time frames. You can trade using this universal method in equity indices and in the currency markets. Typical instruments, however, are futures and currencies.

    How to Develop a Profitable Trading Strategy
     
    Why You Should Do the Opposite of What the Majority of Traders are Trying to Do
     
    Traders become active in the stock market for no other reason than to collect points, ticks and pips. As much as possible and as fast as possible. Everything else is pastime and useless analysis. Traders therefore need a method, a system that does exactly that: accumulating small profits permanently, which eventually adds up to a considerable plus in the account.
     
    For this to happen, the author takes the classic recommendation "cut your losses and let your profits run" under the magnifying glass. In this book, he does the opposite of this well-meaning advice: keep profits as small as possible and choose losses as great as possible.
     
    In the second part of the book, he is investigating a strategy that works with this premise. And the historical backtesting gives him right. When traders do the opposite of what the crowd is trying to do, they finally have success!

    How to start a Trading Business with $500
     
    Many new traders have little capital available in the beginning, but this is not an obstacle to starting a trading career anyway. However, this book is not about how to grow a $500 account into a $500,000 account. It is precisely these exaggerated return expectations that bring most beginners to failure.
     
    Instead, the author shows, in a realistic way, how you can become a full-time trader in spite of limited start-up capital. This applies both for traders who want to remain private, as well as for those who want to eventually trade customer funds.
     
    This book shows step by step how to do it. In addition, there is a concrete action plan for each step. Anyone can be a trader in principle, if he or she is willing to learn how this business works.
