"Risk management is important in all aspects of trading, whether speculative or hedge trading, as Geoffrey Poitras so aptly makes clear in this book. Poitras does an excellent job of presenting the concepts and ideas that guide sound risk management decision making and then illustrates them with practical, yet sophisticated, examples. Solid ideas, excellent explanations and some thoughtful questions at the end of each Chapter make this an extremely valuable and useful teaching tool".
--Mark J. Powers, Former Editor,
The Journal of Futures Markets
