"MY" Active-Investment Bibles

A Listmania! list by MD888 (Irvine, CA United States)
The list author says: ".


Investment Strategy - Long-term holdings of at least several weeks, preferably several months. Mainly focusing on "ACTIVE" investment management including asset allocations, rotations, and diversification of indices, sectors, industries, mutual funds, ETFs, forex, futures and commodities (rarely individual equities).

Like the markets, this is an "evolving" list. Newer and better books (as I discover them) will be added to or replaced those that are considered inferior or outdated. Thus, keeping this list dynamic and current.

I hope that these books are of use to you. Live long (invest well) and prosper!!!

Refer to my other Listmania Lists for more suggestions, or as points of reference if you don't know where to begin.
