Stock Market Trading Rules: Collected Wisdom From 80 International Stock Market Experts

Book Description

Back in 2001, The Harriman House Book of Investing Rules was compiled and published. The project was a huge success, the rules provided by the contributors were fascinating, insightful and entertaining, and for the first time the book pooled together collected wisdom of 150 of the world's greatest traders in one place. One of the many strengths of the rules that were written for and included in the original publication was their timeless quality - these gems of investing and trading wisdom apply to a range of markets across a spread of time periods and are not confined to one market or one set of circumstances. And so it is that the decision was made to republish the original rules in a more condensed form and in a new format. In this eBook you will find just that; 80 sets of trading rules from expert international traders. As with the original publication, these rules provide condensed knowledge from experts about what they consider to the key determinants of trading success. You will notice that the experts do not agree, this is intentional as trading is a diverse and conflicting pursuit, and you will notice that the rules are not comprehensive, this is also intentional, as this is a reference guide to be dipped into and to encourage you to take up further reading elsewhere on subjects that appeal to you. Traders of all experience levels will find these rules useful in clarifying aspects of their trading approach. The original publication of 150 rules is also available as an eBook, from all good online retailers. www.harriman-house.com/investingrules
