Futures: Fundamental Analysis

Editorial Reviews
From AMAZON.COM

Schwager is best known for his two highly popular "market wizard" books, which consist of interviews with successful futures traders and detail their investment philosophies and strategies. His Complete Guide to the Futures Markets has been a standard reference on the subject since 1984. Now he provides this comprehensive look at fundamental analysis, the investment technique that takes into account a product's or a company's financial performance and basic condition and looks at the state of related industry segments. Schwager contrasts fundamental with technical analysis, the examination of market indicators, and then explains various analytical approaches to investment. He devotes more than 100 pages to demonstrating regression analysis, a mathematical tool used in fundamental analysis. Finally, he looks at specific markets, such as sugar and soybeans, and shows how to apply the analytical techniques he has described. This is the first of an eventual three-volume set, but it does stand sufficiently on its own. Highly recommended for serious investment collections. David Rouse

Getting Started in Options, 3rd Edition

Editorial Reviews
From AMAZON.COM

Anyone mystified by stock options or who simply dismisses them as too speculative will find Getting Started in Options an excellent first read on the subject. Beginning with the premise that it's not the complexity of the investment but that of its language that makes options difficult for new investors to understand, author Michael C. Thomsett has created a guided tour through the lexicon. The result is a non technical introduction to these specialized markets.

The book carefully and completely defines the terminology, explains options investing step by step, and presents strategies so that it is easy to understand at each level of risk involved. Choosing the right stock, buying and selling options, and combining techniques are all covered in increasing complexity, but this is a book for beginners, and those with basic knowledge of the subject will want to seek out more advanced reading.

The biggest drawback of this book is that, for some reason, the text is printed in green ink, making it somewhat more difficult to read and probably impossible for those who are green-colorblind. Publisher, take note! --Scott Harrison
