How to Understand the Financial Pages is an informative and accessible reference guide to the terms and jargon that fill the pages of the financial press - from bonds and shares, to hedge funds and alternative investments, and to depositary receipts and bonds.
The only basic guide to the financial media that anyone will ever need. This new edition of How to Understand the Financial Pages provides comprehensive coverage of newspapers and magazines, and also financial websites, stockbrokers' research and company reports.
The handy A-Z format enables the reader to look up entries quickly and easily. Essential terms and concepts are explained in non-technical English, and it is extensively cross-referenced. A valuable reference tool for any private investor, it is international in scope and includes references to the use of technical analysis in internet trading, the development of hedge funds and other alternative investments, and the growth of financial services regulation and compliance - something other guides often omit.
Journalistic, snappy and stylish, it will help anyone to read the financial pages and gain a full understanding of the concepts involved.
