To my father, Dr. Aly Bassal. And my sisters, Suzie and Sarah. To my loving wife, Salma, and my brother-in-law, Hisham. And to my beloved nephew, Mostafa. They have always supported me in easy and difficult times. Author’s Acknowledgments I don’t believe any experience could possibly have prepared me for the rigor- ous schedule required to write a book. I can’t tell you how many weekends, evenings, and holidays were required to write Swing Trading For Dummies. The effort was, of course, worth it. But I did miss several episodes of Lost, The Office, and other shows. Alas, the cost of writing books isn’t measured in time alone. Before I turn this section into an autobiography (which I should pitch to Wiley as my second book, come to think of it: Omar Bassal For Dummies!), let me thank those who deserve thanks (give credit where credit is due, I’m told, is the way the kids are putting it these days). I first learned of this opportu- nity through Susan Weiner, CFA — a skilled and professional investment writer. Susan told me about a search Wiley was conducting to find an author for this book. Marilyn Allen, my agent, pitched me to Wiley. I’m honored Wiley offered me the opportunity to write this book. Thank you, Stacy Kennedy, for your confidence in me and your buy-in. Writing the book, as you may have gleaned from my previous comments, was a grueling, tough process, and Kristin DeMint was an invaluable resource. She was my project editor and made sure the book progressed. She often joked that she knew nothing about swing trading. But her “weakness” was in reality a strength. Not being an expert in the subject meant Kristin could offer help- ful comments on what might confuse a novice when I made assumptions or didn’t properly explain ideas. Kristin also kept a watchful eye when deadlines approached. Oh how I didn’t want to draw her ire. (I’m half joking. She’s actually a very sweet person . . . as long as I didn’t miss my deadline!) As my trading mentor, Ian Woodward, once said: Many hands make light work. In addition to Kristin, many Wiley staff members worked behind the scenes. Russell Rhoads, the technical editor, ensured I wasn’t making things up, and other editors — Todd Lothery, Jennifer Tucci, and Elizabeth Rea — made sure my grammar made cents. (They must’ve missed this part!) Though not involved directly in my project, per se, my family supported me throughout. That meant a lot. It’s not something I can put into words — even as a writer. 0011__229933668833--ffffiirrss..iinndddd vviiii 77//2288//0088 66::3388::2299 PPMM
