The first practical trading guide to the revolutionary new science of decision-making

According to the Wall Street Journal, "Game theory is hot." On Wall Street, many of today's most successful high-rollers now use it to help them make crucial buying and selling decisions. In the first trader's guide to game theory, economist Ron Shelton uses real-world case studies to demonstrate how game theory works in trading. He provides a model that can be used to predict the profitability of trades and shows traders how to use it to make market buy and sell decisions.
