Editorial Reviews

Review

"A jargon-busting guide that aims to translate difficult financial terms into simple language...provides practical and accessible advice in a friendly and sometimes irreverent tone." Mortgage Advisor & Home Buyer "Bursting with clearly written need-to-know help on investment terms and financial jargon." What Mortgage "Covers everything from Analysts to Z-score and its truly comprehensive, providing easy-to-read descriptions of topics as diverse as 'parabolic system' and 'ten bagger'". Securities & Investment Review "Offers a crash course, allowing you to track your investments daily and have meaningful discussions with your financial advisors without getting bogged down in theory...Having this reference book close to hand helps cut through the hyperbole until terms like 'Bollinger band' and 'moving strike option' become second nature." Business Edge "A welcome aid to translation... anything that helps us understand what the financial whiz-kids are up to with my cash is a good thing in my book." Birmingham Evening Mail

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book will help you understand the financial information found in the newspaper. I use it to help me understand my weekly financial publications. Most of the information in this book can be found on the internet through your favorite search engine but I prefer to have it all in one place. I appears to be an authoritive source.
