Market Wizards

This bestselling classic offers interviews with the world’s most successful traders, including Jim Rogers, Paul Tudor Jones and William O'Neil of Investors Business Daily. There are some amazing stories: A trader who turned $30,000 into $80 million; A fund manager who achieved five consecutive years of triple digit percentage returns; A trader from small-town America who started on shoestring and became one of the world's largest bond traders.

One of the first things you notice from this book is that, while each trader is highly successful over long periods, each of their approaches is different. Some of the traders use fundamental analysis exclusively, others employ only technical analysis, others combine the two. Some traders operate on a time horizon of hours or even minutes, while others implement positions for months or years. Market Wizards reveals their individual investment philosophies and approaches and is one of the most fascinating books ever written about the financial markets.

You can listen to the author, Jack Schwager, discussing New Market Wizards on Financial Sense.

New Market Wizards

The next in the "Market Wizards" series from Jack Schwager, including a new collection of master investors like Stanley Druckenmiller and Victor Sperandeo. these wildly successful traders relate the financial strategies that have rocketed them to success.

In the preface the author notes "I became absolutely convinced that winning in the market is a matter of skill and discipline, not luck. The magnitude and consistency of the winning track records complied by many of those I interviewed defy chance." He goes on to conclude that there are traits common to successful investors, including: It is Absolutely Necessary to Have an Edge; Money management & Risk Control; Discipline; and Maximise Gains, Not the Number of Wins.

Stock Market Wizards

The third book in the “Market Wizards” series by Jack Schwager. The '90s witnessed the most dynamic bull market in U.S. Stock history, a collapse in commodity prices, the dramatic failures in some of the world's leading hedge funds. Stock Market Wizards features interviews with traders and investors who managed to significantly outperform a stock market that moved virtually straight up

The book is notable for the highly diverse ways in which each investor makes money and their clear awareness, ahead of time, that the internet bubble was about to burst. What did they know that other traders didn't? How did they figure it all out in advance? The book reminds readers to maintain a whole-picture perspective and to focus on the entire market or sector, not just an individual stock. Be attentive to qualitative factors, not just the available quantitative information. Develop a trading plan that encompasses all the aspects of trading, not just the entry strategy.

How to Make Money in Stocks

William O’Neil’s outstanding stock investment book takes the reader through his 7 step approach for minimizing risk, maximising return, and finding stocks that are poised to perform. The approach, called "CAN SLIM", is explained in a clear, concise manner. From my perspective the most important element of this book is that it gives investors a system and structure to work with, allowing you to grow and develop your investment skills.

Investors.com

Take everything you just learned in the book and implement it through Investors.com. This interactive website is designed to complement the CAN SLIM approach, giving you access to Investors.com’s comprehensive stock rating and research tools described in the book.

Investor's Business Daily

The Investor's Business Daily newspaper provides investors with the key, accurate market analysis and highlights shifts in market trends way ahead of other media. I highly recommend the newspaper, which you can receive digitally each morning, direct to your computer.

How to Make Money Selling Stocks Short

William O’Neil’s approach for profiting in a falling stock market. It is helpful to have read “How to Make Money in Stocks” beforehand, but with a weak outlook for stocks over the medium term, this book is certainly worth a read.

There are two sides to everything, except the stock market. In the stock market there is only one side--the right side. In certain market conditions, selling short can put you on the right side, but it takes real knowledge and market know-how as well as a lot of courage to assume a short position.

The mechanics of short selling are relatively simple, yet virtually no one, including most professionals, knows how to sell short correctly. In How to Make Money Selling Stocks Short, William J. O'Neil offers you the information needed to pursue an effective short selling strategy, and shows you--with detailed, annotated charts--how to make the moves that will ultimately take you in the right direction.

From learning how to set price limits to timing your short sales, the simple and timeless advice found within these pages will keep you focused on the task at hand and let you trade with the utmost confidence.

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator - First published in 1923, this is the fictionalised biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest speculators of all time. It is one of the most widely read, highly recommended investment books ever written.

Jesse Livermore was a remarkable character who first started speculating in New England bucket shops at the turn of the century. Livermore, who was banned from these shady operations because of his winning ways, soon moved to Wall Street where he made and lost his fortune several times over. What makes this book so valuable are the observations that Lefèvre records about investing, speculating, and the nature of the market itself. For example:

"It never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It always was my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight! It is no trick at all to be right on the market. You always find lots of early bulls in bull markets and early bears in bear markets. I've known many men who were right at exactly the right time, and began buying or selling stocks when prices were at the very level which should show the greatest profit. And their experience invariably matched mine - that is, they made no real money out of it. Men who can both be right and sit tight are uncommon."

How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market

This book compliments the approach used by William O'Neil in "How to Make Money in Stocks".

Hungarian by birth, Nicolas Darvas trained as an economist at the University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the Nazis or the Soviets took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged exit visa and fifty pounds sterling to stave off hunger in Istanbul, Turkey. During his off hours as a dancer, he read some 200 books on the market and the great speculators, spending as much as eight hours a day studying.Darvas ploughed his money into a couple of stocks that had been hitting their 52-week high. He was utterly surprised that the stocks continued to rise and subsequently sold them to make a large profit. His main source of stock selection was Barron's Magazine. At the age of 39, after accumulating his fortune, Darvas documented his techniques in the book, How I Made 2,000,000 in the Stock Market. The book describes his unique "Box System", which he used to buy and sell stocks. Darvas' book remains a classic stock market text to this day.

The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing

Among the library of investment books promising no-fail strategies for riches, Benjamin Graham's classic, The Intelligent Investor, offers no guarantees or gimmicks but overflows with the wisdom at the core of all good portfolio management.

The hallmark of Graham's philosophy is not profit maximization but loss minimization. In this respect, The Intelligent Investor is a book for true investors, not speculators or day traders. He provides, "in a form suitable for the laymen, guidance in adoption and execution of an investment policy". This policy is inherently for the longer term and requires a commitment of effort. Where the speculator follows market trends, the investor uses discipline, research, and his analytical ability to make unpopular but sound investments in bargains relative to current asset value. Graham coaches the investor to develop a rational plan for buying stocks and bonds, and he argues that this plan must be a bulwark against emotional behavior that will always be tempting during abrupt bull and bear markets.

Since it was first published in 1949, Graham's investment guide has sold over a million copies and has been praised by such luminaries as Warren E. Buffet as "the best book on investing ever written." These accolades are well deserved. In its new form--with commentary on each chapter and extensive footnotes prepared by senior Money editor, Jason Zweig--the classic is now updated in light of changes in investment vehicles and market activities since 1972. What remains is a better book. Graham's sage advice, analytical guides, and cautionary tales are still valid for the contemporary investor, and Zweig's commentaries demonstrate the relevance of Graham's principles in light of 1990s and early twenty-first century market trends.

One Up on Wall Street

An updated edition of a classic that explains how to research stocks and offers easy-to-follow directions for making the correct choice. It also explains why one should focus on the fundamentals of a company, and not on its stock value fluctuations.

Peter Lynch was one of America's greatest money managers. His mantra: Average investors can become experts in their own field and can pick winning stocks as effectively as Wall Street professionals by doing just a little research.

Investment opportunities abound for the lay person, Lynch says. By simply observing business developments and taking notice of your immediate world - from the mall to the workplace - you can discover potentially successful companies before professional analysts do. This jump on the experts is what produces "tenbaggers," the stocks that appreciate tenfold or more and turn an average stock portfolio into a star performer.

Lynch promises that if you ignore the ups and downs of the market and the endless speculation about interest rates, in the long term your portfolio will reward you.
