Sub-title a bit misleading, March 26, 2001 ByJohn Matott (Fernandina Beach, Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Stock Index Futures & Options: The Ins and Outs of Trading Any Index, Anywhere (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) While the book contains much detailed information about the history, regulatory environment and composition of the world's index futures, it does not provide much practical information about the "ins & outs of trading" these contracts.

Everything need to know about stock indexes worldwide!, July 19, 2000 By"djmos" - See all my reviews This review is from: Stock Index Futures & Options: The Ins and Outs of Trading Any Index, Anywhere (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) Whether you think a CAC is the sound your cat makes when coughing up a hairball or a stock index in France, if you're a new investor or an experienced trader this book is an excellent reference to stock indexes worldwide. Susan Abbott Gidel starts with a brief history of the index and futures markets. Followed by an explanation of what makes the market move, definition of the market "players", and strategies for investing in stock indexes and index futures. The worldwide market indexes are summarized by region. Each index is individually defined in very readable layman's terms. Gidel explains what equities make up each index, how each one is calculated and how the index and index futures are traded. The book has a glossary and index that easily guide the reader through it's wealth of information making it easy to find an index comprised of stocks that suit your investment need.I enjoyed the book and plan on making it a permanent part of my financial library...
