    Humour along with great insight into stock market functionalities during 1980s time period The process for trading has changed drastically since then but nevertheless the flaws on which investing decisions are made by both common investors as well as the sophisticated ones remains the only constant

    The notion of logging a Wall Street novice's yearlong uest for investment profits during what turns out to have been the height of a roaring bull market in stocks has a certain appeal Unfortunately Rothchild did not execute the order nearly as well as he might have The author a Miami based free lancer ventured into the financial services marketplace at the start of 1986 with high hopes and about 14000 in cash At the end of his tour which took him through Chicago's commodity pits the NYSE a cram course for aspiring brokers and other outposts Rothchild was deeply in the red after allowances for travel expenses as well as losses of principal and transaction costs At its best the author's anecdotal recap of how he and his money were parted in stages offers humorous insights In like vein he cautions that past performances improves with age As a practical matter the freuently shrewd nature of Rothchild's observations undercuts his credibility as a naif who throws money away on unpromising option straddles and obscure over the counter issues Nor is it easy to accept that a reporter able to secure productive interviews with some of the financial community's leading people would put much stock in an astrologer; or call the SEC to inuire about the legality of holding a garage sale of his less rewarding securities The bottom line a very amusing account of capital punishment that's almost too absurd to be believed

    Too much fictional content

  9. Ray Kyo Ray Kyo says:

    Funny but sad which most of the investors would end up the same wayLife is a journey of learning I believe as long as we spending time on investment it will finally return

  10. MADHUKAR DAYAL MADHUKAR DAYAL says:

    Hilarious and educational both at the same time Written in relatively simple words for the common person to understand easily Expect no tips Describes only pitfalls and what fools do with their money in the 'markets' due to which they claimed 80 or % looseRead to find out what you should not do in the markets
