See the possibilities

Wall Street is a physical street that is seven blocks long and runs from Broadway to the New York East River. It lies to the south of the Manhattan borough of New York City. The street is incredibly significant because it has played host to a number of the most important financial entities in the United States.

The city originally got its name because of an earthen built wall that Dutch Settlers of the city erected in 1653 to ward off an anticipated invasion of the English. The street’s importance grew so rapidly that before the Civil War in America this was already known as the nation’s sole financial capital. In the district of Wall Street there are many important buildings and headquarters.

The street contains the Federal Reserve Bank, the New York Stock Exchange, the International Commodity, Cocoa, Sugar, Coffee, and Cotton Exchanges, and the NYSE Amex Equities. There are also numerous municipal and government bond dealers, investment banks, trust companies, and insurance and utilities’ headquarters located here. A great number of the major American brokerage firms have their headquarters in this financial district.

Because of Wall Street, New York City is sometimes called the most important financial center in the world as well as the greatest and most powerful city economically. Investors find the two biggest stock exchanges in the world as measured by market capitalization here in the NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange. A few other significant exchanges also make or made their headquarters here. These are the New York Board of Trade, The New York Mercantile Exchange, and the one time American Stock Exchange.

Quickly grasp the context without using jargon.

I particularly appreciated the easy to use-alphabetical table of contents. It was written with an emphasis to quickly grasp the context without using jargon. Every terms is explained in a well detailed manner. This book is equally valuable to the experienced and the novice reader.

Amazing For Trading career

Bitcoin is the name of a new electronic currency. An unknown individual who called himself Satoshi Nakamoto created this currency in 2009. This world’s first widespread virtual currency appeals to many individuals because there are no banks or governments involved in issuing, trading, spending, or processing the transactions. There are also no transaction fees involved. Owners do not have to provide their actual identity to use them.

Bitcoin users like that they are able to purchase goods and services completely anonymously. They also enjoy the inexpensive and simple to use international payment system. This exists because this currency is not heavily regulated nor tied to any single bank or nation. Small businesses tend to like Bitcoin since they do not have to pay any credit card usage fees.

There are several ways to obtain these Bitcoins. Users buy them on open marketplaces known as Bitcoin exchanges. Those who wish to have them can buy and sell it with a variety of different currencies. Mt. Gox was the largest Bitcoin marketplace until it spectacularly collapsed and went bankrupt. Many clients who held their Bitcoins at Mt. Gox lost most of their money there at the time.

It was well explained.

It's almost like a regular book but its a dictionary. It's very expanded and explains a lot for someone new to finances. It taught be about a lot that I need to know in the stock market world and painted a picture that regular dictionaries just leave in the wind after one sentence.

Invaluable resource!

Swing trading refers to a wide range of shorter time frame trading strategies used in the stock market. Once a purview of only wealthy or professional full time traders this form of trading has become far more broad-based and accessible to regular investors. This is thanks to the vast proliferation over the past few years of the Internet revolution, an explosion in information and charting capabilities, and a range of affordable, efficient and fast online trading platforms. Those who practice swing trading try to realize gains in a financial instrument such as stocks by holding them for from only overnight to even several weeks. The majority of swing traders will employ a technical analysis to consider various stocks that might offer shorter term momentum in price. It is possible that such traders will also use intrinsic fundamental analysis of the stocks alongside their analysis of patterns and trends in the price. Because swing trading requires speed and availability to execute these types of trades, the majority of those traders or investors who utilize it are day traders or those who work from home. The institutional traders work with enormous sizes which prohibit them from quietly entering and exiting stock trades. It is the individual lone-wolf trader who can take advantage of these shorter-term movements in the prices of stocks. They have the advantage of not having to go head to head against the large investors of the trading business.

extremely helpful and shed clarity on concepts

This book is a great primer for many financial terms and definitely helps to explain a lot of terms that I have heard of, but didn’t really understand. As someone who is beginning the planning process of starting to do trading, this book was extremely helpful and shed clarity on concepts that previously seemed overwhelming.
