This book gives you great, insider investment advice. It does not just repeat the stale old cliches you get in the money sections of the newspapers - it tells you what you should buy, and when, and most importantly when you should sell as well. Although conscious of the perilous state of things, the author gives hope that enterprise and good judgement can and will be rewarded.

I don't know if this advice is good or not but it is different from most and his argument is very compelling. Compelling enough that I will be spending a couple of days backtesting it.

Unfortunately he loses significant credibility with me because his web site he touts for the "latest news, analysis, and chart updates" - [...] - does not exist.

By the way, I knew better but I bought the Kindel version anyway. Never but a Kindel version for any book that is going to have charts.

This is not a book for those who like to play things safe. Carlucci seems to have developed some pretty solid analytics. I disagree with him about stopping all trading when the market is down. Like Warren Buffet, I like to buy when the market is down. But honestly, I'm a buy-and-hold, dollar-cost averaging kind of girl, so Carlucci's market-timing strategies are a little too far outside my comfort zone.

Nevertheless, I admire the chutzpah of anyone with the nerve to follow through on this advice. His description of end-of-day trading is thought-provoking -- and explains that bounce we so often see in the charts after 3:30 p.m. You can tell the traders get active then. I didn't realize just how much thought went into those trades.

I read this book mainly for its perspective on how the economy is likely to perform over the next decade, and Carlucci offers some good insights there. Lots to think about, and some advice on commodities trading that might be worth pursuing if you have a high tolerance for risk.

Ashes to Riches is a punchy, well-argued book which will resonate with readers- and investors - both sides of the Atlantic. The author's optimism is refreshing and qualified. Although it is difficult to make money out there at the moment, it is far from impossible. Book provides over arching arguments for things, but also Ashes to Riches is a resource for simple, bite-size tips and pieces of information to guide would-be investors. Recommended.

This is a very dangerous book. I can say so after I have self-educated myself on all things to do with investment (profitably I might add).

Ironically, if you do not already know many of the terms and things he talks about in this book, reading this book will only give you a very little piece of information which is highly dangerous to your net worth.

If you already know all the things he talks about, then you don't need this book, and you can even figure out what aspects are B.S. and not.

All the technical analysis is bunk. Numerous people may disagree with me, and that's fine. They can risk their money the way they like. I am telling you straight, that all T.A. is bunk.

I just don't want to see anyone lose their money especially in these hard times. You really need to get off your butt and read a LOT of books about investment before you even gamble a dollar. And that is what it is, gambling. Let's not fool ourselves.

The author suggests things like Muni Bonds. Really? When so many cities are going bankrupt?

SLV and GLD are interesting plays, but you need to be aware what they are. You are not actually buying silver or gold, and there is no receipt to redeem in gold or silver. It is just paper money, holding paper assets. Again, you need to educate yourself.

As for stop loss and end of day trading... you are fooling yourself if you think these are magic bullets. Stop loss orders can be "gamed" so that they trigger mass selling when the price hits, and then the stock will then shoot up, with you missing the boat (and taking a net loss).

The author may not like what I wrote here but he should agree that I am just telling it like it is and agree that a little information is a dangerous thing.
