Product Description
From Content:

"A couple of weeks ago I went to Washington to contradict under the solemn obligation of my oath a gross and wanton calumny which, based upon nothing but anonymous and irresponsible gossip, had been uttered regarding my name.

On my way between New York and Washington, thinking that, once on the stand, I might possibly be asked a number of questions more or less within the general scope of the Committee's enquiry, I indulged in a little mental exercise by putting myself through an imaginary examination.

With your permission, I will read a few of these phantom questions and answers:

Should the Exchange Be "Regulated"?


There is a fairly widespread impression that the functions of the Stock Exchange should be circumscribed and controlled by some governmental authority; that it needs reforming from without. What have you to say on that subject?


I need not point out to your Committee the necessity of differentiating between the Stock Exchange as such and those who use the Stock Exchange.

Most of the complaints against the Stock Exchange arise from the action of those outside of its organization and over whose conduct it has no control. No doubt there have at times been shortcomings and laxity of methods in the administration of the Stock Exchange just as there have been in every other institution administered by human hands and brains.

Some things were, if not approved, at least tolerated in the past which are not in accord with the ethical conception of to-day.

The same thing can be said of almost every other institution, even of Congress. Until a few years ago, the acceptance of campaign Should the Exchange be regulated? contributions from corporations, the acceptance of railroad passes by Congressmen and Senators were regular practices which did not shock the conscience either of the recipients or of the public. Now they have rightly been made and are looked upon as crimes.

Ethical conceptions change; the limits of what is morally permissible are drawn tighter. That is the normal process by which civilization moves forward.

The Stock Exchange has never sought to resist the coming of that higher standard. On the contrary, in its own sphere it has ever endeavored to maintain an exemplary standard, and it has ever shown itself ready and willing to introduce better methods whenever experience showed them to be wise or suggestion showed them to be called for."

4-0 out of 5 stars Understandable primer on ETFs
While I have been following the growth of ETFs for a some time in the financial media, I've been confused about how to select them and why they're sound investment alternatives. This book provided sound discussions about the various funds and why this is a good investment strategy. The charts were helpful and overall this is a very well written investment book

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive
The book discusses in great detail all the important stock market ratios and indicators and many of the lesser ones. It expounds on many styles and strategies to buying and selling stocks, including active trading strategies, value investing, technical analysis and fundamental analysis. The problem I have with exposing the beginner to strategies such as active trading is that research has shown that it is futile and will result in a loss for nearly all traders after trading expenses (You are up against thousands of MBA graduates who will stay up later then you and get up earlier then you ). I believe the downside of each strategy should be explained and who has been successful using it, so that the beginner has an idea of what he is up against. That being said, there is tremendous value in the book because of its detailed explanation of how to analyze company reports, what the valuation indicators mean (ie, p/e) and how to use them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Are you OVERWHELMED with INFOMERCIALS on How to Get Rich Quick by TRADING STOCKS?
Are you among the large percent of OVERWHELMED people wondering...
What the HECK are STOCKS?

Well, this is the book for you!

The authors George A. Fontanills and Tom Gentile did an excellent job in presenting the BASICS of the stock market. This is the real deal. They thoroughly cover all aspects of the stock market and the factors that affect it. We call this book Stock Market courses 101, 102 and 103 because after finishing this book, we feel you will possess enough knowledge to be able to trade the markets effectively, or at least understandthe process. The great part is that there is a workbook for this material you can purchase to test your newly found wisdom and to reinforce the major concepts in the book.

Starting out totally clueless about the stock market, we feel we have been enlightened!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive Infrastructurefor the Comprehensive/Competent Investor
I picked up this book again after having read it about a year ago.I highly recommend that any beginning investor read this book--more than once and at different times as his/her own investing experience and confidence increases.

There are many things to recommend about the book, but I'll focus on the the most key.First, the book is written in a conversational style that engages the reader.Second, the book discusses all of the major areas in which all investors need to develop skill--it provides the bones of competent and comprehensive investor education.Third, the book layers those bones with enough meat to give the beginning investor a foundational understanding from how the market physically works through technical analysis.Fourth, all of the material is reinforced through the summary "Roadmap of Success".I highly recommend this book.I also recommend George Dagnino's Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets for investors who want to ensure that their investment decisions are in tune with the natural economic cycle.

5-0 out of 5 stars The stock market course
Excellent course material. The course advises when to get into market, when to exit. I am very satisfied.

1-0 out of 5 stars Written by committee?
Great idea for a book, but poor execution. The idea is to introduce novices to the stock market and teach them all the fundamentals. But this book is so poorly organized and biased that novices will be only confused, and more knowledgeable investors disappointed. The authors are the sponsors of a web service for options traders, and they never fail to recommend their service. The book is biased toward options trading, technical analysis, momentum trading, and chart analysis: not strategies for beginners.

The organization is extremely confusing, seemingly random, and with lots of repetition. For example, the chapter on option trading comes before the chapters on market analysis. At the end of each chapter there is a summary of the main points of the chapter; great idea, but the only problem is that the chapter summaries do not accurately reflect the chapter contents. For example, the chapter summary for "fundamental analysis" lists the PEG ratio as a key point of the chapter, but the chapter doesn't even mention the PEG ratio! PEG ratio isn't mentioned until a later chapter on "analyzing company reports." In that chapter(p. 237-8), the authors suggest that a P/E ratio of 143(!) is quite acceptable for a growth stock (EMC corp) and that a stock with such a P/E would make a good investment!! EMC Corp. fell from $101 in 2000 to $4 in 2002. It's trading now around $10, with a P/E of 21 (July 2006). On a similar note, Enron is described as a "green" or environmentally friendly stock.

Even worse, the book presents no coherent program for investing in stocks, just a bunch of random, often contradictory advice. It turns out that all the indicators for avoiding a stock are also good indicators for buying the stock if you are a "contrarian" investor. Hardly a coherent trading program for novices. ...

You will learn all of the basics of ETFs and E-Mini stock futures from this book. The author explains the history of both products and different strategies to trade each one. His experience working for CME helps as well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Foundational Information
I won't complain about this book at all. It has very good basic information on trading the futures market. Experience traders may not need this but this is a very good starting point and think that is essential for all beginners to own this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars E-BOOK HAS PROBLEMS
I recently purchased the e-book since I'm located overseas (in Saudi Arabia) and postage is sometimes more than the cost of the books.It also takes in excess of 3 weeks to get mail here from the States.I purchased and downloaded the e-book and was all set to print.I could only print the first 14 pages and then was notified by the Abode print driver that I could not print any more pages that day.After doing some checking I found that permissions were set by the publisher that only allowed printing 35 pages every 7 days - what a rip off!!!By the time I can finally print the last pages we'll be celebrating July 4th 2004 (well maybe not that long).But the idea that printing is being restricted after purchase is outrageous. I have written Amazon to inform them.At the very least the publisher should advise of this practice BEFORE YOUR PURCHASE.I will not purchase any e-books until this practice by Wiley is discontinued.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding for biginners in ETFs and Emini futures
This is a well written book and easy to read about the history of ETFs and Emini futures. The author describes the creation of the likes of SPY, QQQ, SMH. Why is it important to know about these instruments, how they get created, who manages them, their cost effective investing over regular mutual funds. He goes in great detail by listing all EFTs available today with their tickers as well, till the point I don't need to keep going to the internet. I started trading the EFTs for profit and for hedging in particular after reading this book. The introduction about the Emini futures is useful and gave me a good start in this subject.

"Barbara Rockefeller brings the authority and perspective of a knowing insider to this well-written account of the risks and opportunities in trading highly leveraged markets like interbank currencies and futures."
–Nelson Freeburg, Editor, Formula Research, Inc.

Face it, the U.S. stock market has been analyzed to death. Long- and short-term investors are looking outside domestic markets to enhance portfolio performance and diversify the way they trade. This is why the concept of a global trader has become so prevalent. Whether you are looking to balance your portfolio, generate profits, or hedge risk, The Global Trader can help you make informed decisions about your global investments. Let Barbara Rockefeller unlock the opportunities and help you find the tools, guidance, and resources to make the most of trading in the less efficient yet potentially more profitable global markets of Europe, Asia, and beyond. ...

Barbara has done very well with this book. It is a bit dated but it has the basics and some very good information.

4-0 out of 5 stars A must read for any Trader
This book is one of those books which is a must read for a Trader to be successful. It is more useful for those who want and operate in global markets and not just plain equity. It also analyses the major events and discloses the facts which most media missed but was crucial to the risk taken by the particular trader.

5-0 out of 5 stars At least READ the book before panning it!
I cannot believe the two reviews that currently (November 2005) appear regarding this book: one critic admits to never even having read it, while the other goes off on jesuitical semantics!

The book is a good one, as are Ms. Rockefeller's other books. She also runs a very good trading advisory service, that has made me a LOT of money!

That being said, this edition is now over four years old, in a market that changes very rapidly. I hope that she will soon be coming out with an updated edition of the book, addressing all the many changes that have occurred in the FX market since this edition.

1-0 out of 5 stars BOOK NOT RECOMMENDED
This book is full of misinformation. For example, the author claims that value investors rely on the efficiency of the markets, when, in fact, what they do is exploit market inefficiencies. I have yet to meet a value investor who believes the Efficient Market Theory. She also compares trading to investing by saying that the goal of trading is to make money, while the goal of equity investing is to preserve capital! Of course preserving capital is certainly important, but have you ever met an equity investor whose goal it wasn't to make money? If capital preservation were the goal, investors wouldn't buy equities, they'd buy bonds or other instruments that guarantee the capital. She also claims that there's no risk management in equity investing, adding that traders do manage risk. The truth is that trading is a losing proposition for most people, and it wouldn't be that way if managing risk was as straightforward as she implies. Trading can be profitable, but don't put much of your money into it (it's too risky), and find a better book than this one!

1-0 out of 5 stars If you're a FOREX trader:
Let me say right up front I did not read this book. However, I heard a talk the author gave in 2000, in which she made the following "predictions".

1. The euro would fail as a currency.
2. Great Britain would not enter the EU.

Additionally, to paraphrase, she said that no one in their right mind would trade FOREX; you should trade futures instead. Finally, she showed overhead projections of various technical indicators, some of which she couldn't explain. Huh???

I was all set to buy this book until I heard her talk. For all I know, the book may be excellent, but based on her presentation, I'm not as enthusiastic about spending the 40 bucks.

Just my opinion, and you know what they say about those... ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
DON'T BUY THIS BOOK if you want handy hints on which shares to buy, because David Cohen is not an investment expert.

DO BUY THIS BOOK if you want to know how brokers behave or if you've ever wondered why investing in the stock market seems to be more of a gamble than a coolly calculated, economic exercise. David Cohen examines the psychology of the real stock market, not the share prices, buildings or machines, but the people who work there and the people who invest their money in it.

Fear, Greed and Panic shows that economic facts are less important than feelings, for both professional investors and lay people. Try the risk questionnaire to see how you fare. Lots of people are shy about admitting that they want to make money. If you can understand the people involved in the money markets you will know a lot more about share prices than any clever software package can reveal.

Comments on the hardback edition:

"David Cohen's book has hit upon a rich seam, which is far more edifying than any beginner's guide to investing . . . his objective eye from one profession looking at another gives the reader a far better insight of the markets than many an expert I have read." - Justin Urquhart Stewart, The Independent

"Cohen attempts to address what makes the markets tick in his thoroughly engaging work . . . fascinating book." - Conn O Midheach, Irish Times

4-0 out of 5 stars Fear, Greed and Panic
This book is dedicated to the bursting technology bubble in 2001 but proves to be valid for the events of 2008. David Cohen's style is fluent and entertaining - he manages to convey the psychology of decision making under stress with ease. The questionaires give the reader the feeling of being an active participant. The book combines theory with good research of the author. The interviews and case studies are well selected and clearly illuminate the subject matter. A well balanced, educational and enjoyable read.

3-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the individual investor, a bit too basic for a seasoned professional
I can't give it lower than 3 stars, because the book is generally titled "Understanding exchange traded funds".I should have known it would be somewhat basic.It provides good, accurate information in layman's terms.

That said, it doesn't really go beyond that. If you are an academic or practitioner, this would only be used as an entry level quick read.It's very short.If you're an individual investor, this is probably a great digestible way to learn about ETFs.

I found this book to be far too basic. The first part of the book spends far too long on the general stock market and the actual study of ETF's I found to be shallow and incomplete. I didn't bother to finish reading it. I went and bought "The ETF Book" by Ferri instead. A far more comprehensive study of the industry.

5-0 out of 5 stars An exceptionally good book for the ETF investor.
I've been an investor for some thirty years. I now invest almost solely in ETFs. I found this book extremely valuable.

To begin with, it is well written and organized well. In addition, it offers the reader lots of current information on almost all of the EFTs currently offered.

It starts out with the basics. So I skipped a lot of that but if you're new to investing, you should read every word. This fantastic book tells you more about EFTs than you'd ever find elsewhere. I was amazed at all the material covered and the information given.

I didn't agree with the author when he advised the reader to use FolioFN. I find Buyandhold better in that the fees for one year at $14.99 per month is less than a year with FolioFN. (This is for unlimited window trades.) But that's the only area in which I had disagreement.

Well, perhaps one other area. He seemed keen on a 60/40 allocation for everyone at all times. I'm not so sure I can buy that. At my age and in a recession, I sleep better with closer to 50/50. But, having said that, I found his idea of nine EFTs wonderful. He showed how to actually lower your risk using more equities and asset classes.

While he doesn't give but one suggested portfolio (which is also on his Web site), it is a good portfolio. It's a bit different from mine but I don't follow any particular advice.

I keep this book together with my other favorite EFT books --- right beside me. If you're interested, the other books are:

The EFT Book
All About Asset Allocation

To me, these are valuable books that I wouldn't part with.

But Richards gives the reader the key elements of ETF costs, redemptions, the three basic categories, tax consequences, and much more. I found the part about taxes especially useful. Oh, and he doesn't believe in IRAs! This is perhaps the first time I've read this in a financial book. But his reasons make a good deal of sense. This book is revolutionary.

Highly recommended. ... Read more

Techniques to use trading volume as an indicator of market direction

Trading on Volume is the first serious analysis of how to employ this accurate tool in today's fast-action trading environment. Specifically, it details how traders can pinpoint the rise, climax, and fall of the activity of market participants, and dramatically increase their opportunities to buy near stock or market bottoms and sell near tops.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money
I wish I could give it 0 stars.I read a few chapters and put it down.Its just blah blah blah with nothing helpful.Perhaps someone who knows nothing about the market may benefit but otherwise look elsewhere.

4-0 out of 5 stars Many interesting observations
One of the best is that Cassidy points out that the difference between the individual stock vs. the overal market and the sector are important.This may seem simplistic but I know many who do not buy best in their group and ignore this message that is droned in thru IBD and others.Here Cassidy shows how the volume should be corresponding, ie. porportional as most of the indices are made of the individuals on a percentage basis but when it's not, it hints that true buyers and sellers, not the ETFs and such are buying and selling...the invdividual stock not the index but I think more and more the ETF is getting the nod as more and more people are scared of inidivudla stock action...Cassidy helps there.Good luck, Remy.

1-0 out of 5 stars truly nothing
The whole book talks again and again about the same thing - the importance of trading volume - a concept that is appealing in itself - but all the way to the last page, the book is all fluff - there just ain't no substance!

1-0 out of 5 stars Nothing
The information in this book is very basic.It is not even worth reading.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not even rateble !
I wuold warmly suggest to spend 50 dollars in something else , the book is aimless , useless from the first page to last one .
No basic concept has explained about the volume , dynamic of volume and price . Clearly Mr. Cassidy is concerned about the volume of the sales of his book ! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Mechanical Must
Whether a long term investor, or not, one needs to know the mechanics of markets. This is where the speculators and short term investors lurk. Use this book as a text book for study and not necessarily to be enjoyed for the ease of reading. You have to have it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Missing important concepts
Here is an example of topics not covered: Employee Stock Options, Secondary Offerings and Stock Dilution.This text operates as if IPOs and treasury stocks are the only way to issue new shares.See the Motley Fool website for more details.

Excellent resource for the beginning investor. This book answers the questions the layman is too embarrassed to ask. Great start for building a foundation in a challenging arena.

4-0 out of 5 stars Review of 'The Stock Market', various editions.
The title of the book suggests no bias or agenda for the work. It simply adopts the title of a very broad and complex area of commerce as it's own name; The Stock Market. The book offers a basic understanding of many aspects of the 'Market'in a way that the un-initiated can understand. Anyone looking for help in selecting a sure path to riches will be dissapointed.Anyone seeking an understanding of the basics, and how various aspects of the 'Market' relate to each other will be rewarded.

This book deliveres knowledge and understanding without bias. It can serve as general reading material or as a reference. It prepares the reader to select and understand other material.

New editions appear when the 'market' changes enough to warrant new material.The content is up to date without being padded by trendy but useless material.

Although this book is an introduction as well as a reference, some knowledge of stock market is assumed. The author often uses technical terms without defining them in the chapter(although there is a small dictionaryin the back). If you have traded once or twice before, you should know atleast some of those terms. ... Read more

Product Description
The growth of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in recent years alongside an unprecedented access to investment resources by any individual with a computer has led to a major boost in the market for many of these funds. According to recently released numbers for the 2007 fiscal year, as reported in the Chicago Tribune, there are currently more than $608 billion in assets within ETFs, with almost $400 billion of that in domestically traded assets an increase of almost 40 percent in one year. This book will provide for you a complete guide to both understanding how to invest in Exchange Traded Funds and to earn the highest possible rates of return without risking your financial future.

In addition to standard forms of ETFs, you will learn the various forms of Bond ETFs, Real Estate Investment Trading ETFs, and Commodity ETFs for gold, silver, and other precious metals. Also, you will discover why you should include a mixture of non-ETF investments in your portfolio to remain diversified at all times. A special section detailing a sample ETF portfolio and how yours should be organized will help you understand the format and building structure for ETF investments. The keys to buying and holding successfully, a stark change from normal investment strategies, will help you learn what ETFs do differently, while the listing of rule exceptions make it easy to recognize when you will have even more options than you originally expected. Through countless hours of interviews with financial professionals and newly independent traders like yourself, you will learn exactly how ETFs are being used today to revolutionize the world of personal finance, including retirement funding, education savings, and portfolio diversification. A list of commonly asked questions will ensure that every possible question you currently have is taken care of and the top ten mistakes that every new investor makes when starting with ETFs will help keep you from increasing your risk.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Complete Guide to Investing in Exchange Traded Funds
Exchange Traded Funds or ETFs can be an extremely complicated subject to just dive into. Similar to splashing within an unmarked pool, you never know when you'll hit the bottom. The Complete Guide to Investing in Exchange Traded Funds will act as your water wings until you're ready to become that Olympic diver, remember this is the same pool that Donald Trump swims in(ugh).

Your ultimate goal within the stock market is to invest the lowest while getting this highest return, but with the unpredictability and diversity of the global market, this is becoming increasingly harder. There are literally thousands of guides in this universe that are geared towards this enormous branch that hangs off the tree of investment, but I find this particular guide to be the most efficient. 338 pages of pure information in its most complete form that covers everything from how managing ETFs to the creation of ETFs. Martha Maeda is a well spoken economist that can be your ticket to a wealthier you. 5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Your First Resource in Understanding ETFs
Exchange traded funds ("ETFs") now enjoy increasing popularity in investment circles.If you are not a sophisticated investor, however, you may be intimidated by the notion of investing in an ETF.If so, Martha Maeda's "The Complete Guide to Investing in Exchange Traded Funds: How to Enjoy High Rates of Return - Safely" is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to fully understand how and why ETFs should fit into a personal investment strategy.

"Investing in Exchange Traded Funds" considers the history of ETFs, from their origin in Amsterdam in the late 18th century to the present, and offers a comprehensive examination of the recent laws and events that have thrust ETFs into public consciousness in the past decade.Ms. Maeda does an excellent job of abstracting the very complex history of the ETF and the even more complex economic theories underlying ETFs to present a cohesive and relatively understandable guide for investors who want to pursue the security and growth that ETFs offer.

Although Ms. Maeda's book makes ETFs much more accessible to casual investors, "Investing in Exchange Traded Funds" is not ideal for novice market participants who do not have a basic understanding of fundamental investment concepts.Accordingly, Investors who are taking their first steps into the stock market should consider a more basic examination of investment markets, such as "The Complete Guide to Online Investing: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply" by Michelle Hooper before they jump into "Investing Exchange Traded Funds."

Anyone who is dissatisfied with their investment portfolio, or who wants to experience better returns on their current investments, should be aware of ETFs and how they might contribute to the growth of their portfolio.Martha Maeda's "The Complete Guide to Investing in Exchange Traded Funds: How to Enjoy High Rates of Return - Safely" offers an excellent guide for those investors who are ready to consider ETFs.After reading Investing in Exchange Traded Funds, even investors who are new to the concept of ETFs will be well prepared to discuss ETFs with their investment advisors, and to make better informed decisions about their investments.

4-0 out of 5 stars Overcome Investment Anxiety
Have you ever wished you were brave enough to start investing your money in something that could earn you real returns? If you're looking for a safer alternative to playing risky stock market games with your life savings, pick up a copy of "The Complete Guide to Investing in Exchange Traded Funds." Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are investment vehicles that make it possible for one person to own a share of a range of stocks, instead of investing in just a few individual companies. Since these modifications of the mutual fund are cheap to buy and own, have instant liquidity, and delay taxes, ETFs can be good vehicles for investing for retirement, investing for education, fleshing out a portfolio, or tax loss harvesting. According to the author, ETFs have grown more than 20 percent per year for over 15 years.

In simple and easy-to-understand language, "The Complete Guide to Investing in Exchange Traded Funds" explains what you need to know to begin investing with confidence. Some of the historical analysis at the beginning is a bit dry, but the vast majority of the information in this book will be helpful for those who are new to the world of investing. Pay close attention in particular to Chapter 20, with its list of frequently asked questions, common beginner investment mistakes, and sample portfolios.

In case you're thinking the book this book is nothing but an advertisement for ETFs, the author does spend a fair amount of time describing situations in which this investment vehicle is not the best choice. And, while it includes a list of ETF providers, the book does not appear to endorse one particular fund over the other. So, while this shouldn't be your sole source of financial information, it appears to be a fairly objective analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of investing in ETFs.

5-0 out of 5 stars How to earn the highest rates without risking too much
Learn how to earn high rates of return safely in a fine guide to ETFs - Exchange Traded Funds. There are huge assets in these funds, offering an increase of nearly 40 percent in a year on investment. This book offers a basic understanding of these types of funds and how to earn the highest rates without risking too much. Any library strong in stock market investing will find this a fine niche acquisition.

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Book
Maeda's guide to exchange traded funds presents a compelling argument for ETFs as an alternative to other corporate investment strategies like mutual funds.The work reads like a chapter to chapter reference manual detailing the history of ETFs, their advantages, composition, and how individual funds line up with the market indexes they track.Though the author is a strong proponent of exchange traded funds, she maintains a level of thoroughness and impartiality that makes her work a valuable resource for evaluating ETFs as an investment strategy.
The book contains a wealth of information relevant to investors already familiar with corporate investment strategies.The opening chapters detail exactly what an ETF is and how they can often provide a more attractive investment than mutual funds due to lower costs and less room for human error.In fact, much of the first few chapters is dedicated to how ETFs provide a a more satisfying investment because they follow market norms more accurately than other types of mutual funds.Maeda goes to great lengths to point out the major advantages that would attract the interest of seasoned investors, namely lower tax liabilities, lower costs for trading shares, and much higher transparency than more traditional mutual funds can offer.Her analysis is both thorough and compelling enough to assuage the reservations of many discerning readers who will likely find ETFs a beneficial addition to their portfolios.
With the level of detail provided by Maeda's work, it would be understandable to assume that it would be too inaccessible for beginning investors simply looking to explore their options.Thankfully, this is not the case.Each chapter is laid out simply and easily so that a reader can review what information is relevant to them and move on.The author also provides comprehensive charts of the most critical information for easy reference.In fact it was often these charts that helped solidify the more extensive explanations contained earlier in the chapters, and would likely provide an excellent quick reference for novices and advanced investors alike.These provisions make The Complete Guide to Exchange Traded Funds a wonderful book to pick up and grow with as your investment strategy becomes more complex. ...
