Editorial Review - Book Description:

In this entertaining and thoughtful book, Gerald Ashley sets out to explain what trading is, and lays out a modus operandi for being a trader and investor. He draws upon market anecdotes and examples from the past, seeking to debunk many myths surrounding financial markets, and to try and make the reader understand the real processes, risks and rewards that drive investment.

In particular he examines ideas in market and individual investor behaviour, and questions the usefulness of many of todays standard investment techniques including benchmarks, charts, analysts and `gurus`. He also lays out simple precepts for understanding investment risk and suggests ideas for managing your investments in today`s markets.

trenchant analysis of the market, September 17, 2003 By A Customer This review is from: Uncertainty and Expectation: Strategies for the Trading of Risk (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) Gerald Ashley's book is a trenchant analysis of many issues associated with the stock market. Calling on his own extensive experience and utilizing a variety of keen arguments, he clearly explains the failure of technical analysis, the appeal of behavioral finance, and a host of other matters. A very satisfying read.
