Great product if you need to remember definitions of certain terms and how things work in different types of markets. The technical analysis section is very insightful about trends and trend lines, but it does discuss any other type of indicators. A definite beginners book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a general reference book on investing, this is probably the best. It covers almost every possible contents: stocks, bonds, mutual funds, futures, options, commodities, foreign currency, hedge funds, value investing, and technical analysis.
.
Easy to read and understand, the volume covers little known subjects such as the "best six months rule." It was a surprise to me to learn that nearly all the gains in the SP500 are made between November 1 and April 30 since 1950. I am also familiar with the famous "January Effect" - when the SP500 is up in January, it will close the hear higher than it opened. It was a surprise to me that this rule has a 92.5% accuracy since 1950.
.
As the reader can see, the book has a "little for everyone." For the novice investor, there is a wealth of information. For the mature investor, it is very convenient to have investment details, entertaining anecdotes on the market, technical analysis summaries, and investment principles in a concise volume.
.
For the above reasons, this reference deserves a place on every desk for any investor - novice or experienced. . . . It is that valuable.

Format: Paperback
The authors do an excellent job of explaining the
various investment alternatives available in the
current market. Samples are provided below:

o silver ETFs called PAAS , SLW
o GC most liquid gold
o GLD ETF for gold
o TK- crude oil transporter
o ULCC- huge vessel company
o RIG-offshore drilling
o solar investments - ESLR and STP
o LNT and AYE for natural gas
o XLE- largest energy ETF
o ACH-Aluminum of China
o JSE and LSE- palladium
o SWC and PAC " "
o MICEX - NORILSK nickel

There is an excellent website for gaining a perspective
on how others view a particular stock. (marketvane.net)

The authors provide guidance on how to execute certain
purchases of stocks, puts, calls etc. For instance,
the strike price + option premium costs + transaction costs=BEP
(Break Even Price)

This book would be an excellent investment for the novice
investor. The acquisition is an absolute must for retirees
in the current environment.
