Can the Free Market Pick Winners?:

Author: Paul Davidson Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/1994

The purpose of this volume is to reopen the discussion of how to develop the economic theory of investment to better model the facts of experience and to provide policy makers with a better understanding of how capital markets work. In this final decade of the twentieth century, almost everyone agrees that human progress will be closely related to the decisions regarding the investments made to promote economic growth of output. Despite the Nobel prize work done in recent decades, economic performance in this area seems to have worsened. Clearly, a reopening of public discussion on what is required is necessary. Until we get our theory right, it is impossible to get our public policy right. This book does not promise to provide the correct theory. Instead, it hopes to stimulate the reader into an understanding of where we may have gone wrong, and how we might rectify our mistakes.

Financial Engineering

Financial Engineering

Author: Charles Errington Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/1994

Financial Engineering is a text with a methodological thread, making it appropriate as a reference text. Risk management and measure and control of volatility is a major theme, but broader financial issues are also covered to provide the reader with a conceptual framework to manipulate and evaluate financial instruments. Errington's text analyses the spectrum of financial engineering including explanations of financial axioms and mathematical techniques with a summary of the instruments and worked examples of how they operate. As well as risk management, arbitrageurs are also catered for, to show how instruments can be valued, deconstructed and repackaged.

Taming the Bear

Taming the Bear

Author: Thomas D Saler Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/1994

If you invest in stocks, either directly or through mutual funds, you know that profits come fairly steadily during a bull market. In a bear market, however, it's a different story. Even over a short period of time, a bear market can wipe out most of the long-term returns you've earned over the years. Thomas D. Saler offers a simple solution to this dilemma - an accessible system that allows you to equal, or sometimes improve, overall market returns when the bull is running and to beat market returns when the bear is on the prowl. Through Saler's step-by-step guidance you will learn why the stock market is usually the best place to invest, why a bear market is always inevitable, popular ways to time the market and why they are not reliable, how to use a quick-and-easy formula to determine whether you should be in the market, the golden rules of investing and the 10 mutual funds that work best in a bear-market avoidance strategy. Also included is an in-depth discussion on the best way to save money on mutual funds. Thomas D. Saler is a nationally-respected authority on investments and personal finance. He is president of Saler Asset Management in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and editor of Historical Perspectives, an advisory market newsletter.

The text from credit risk authority Erik Banks provides a detailed review of the emerging Asian fixed income markets and their primary instruments, along with a discussion of market participants, market mechanics and associated hedging and financing instruments.

Winner Take All

Winner Take All

Author: William R. Gallacher Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/12/1993

The futures industry is unique, entertaining and, for far too many people, ultimately heartbreaking. What other industry possesses such an entertaining cast of soothsayers, self-proclaimed experts and charlatans? Where else do people become fabulously wealthy simply by acting on their own convictions? And where else does the possibility of failure loom so large and so constant? No other book captures the essence of the futures industry better than Winner Take All. With a penetrating intelligence and a sharp wit, Bill Gallacher dissects many of the industry's leading lights, exposing the frauds, deflating the pompous and poking fun at the seers who believe they can predict the future. Along the way, he demonstrates why most traders lose and, most importantly, what it takes to win. Winner Take All is a book for all traders. For those who believe in easy-money trading systems, it is a sobering antidote. For those who think the markets can't be beaten, it is a work of great inspiration. And for those who are trading profitably, it is an affirmation of the trading success principles. Winner Take All is a wise and profound book. But it is also perhaps the wittiest book on trading ever written. Read Mr. Gallacher on Fibonacci numbers: Surely the medieval mathematician would be astounded at his impact on the twentieth-century commodity man. His mathematical series was constructed from observations on the incestuous copulation patterns of rabbits. Let's see, you start with a male and a female, then you take the first female offspring and you...well, better not get into it . Mr. Gallacher, a successful private trader, questions all conventional wisdom. He exposes the false premises that underliemuch of technical analysis, and he demonstrates why mechanical trading approaches - while sometimes producing marginal profits - can never provide truly superior results. Although out-of-favor in today's computer age, Mr. Gallacher shows why fundamental analysis, if con
