More About the Author

Robbie Burns has been a journalist and writer since he graduated in journalism from Harlow College in 1981. After starting life as a reporter and editor for various local newspapers, from 1988-1992 he was editor of ITV and Channel 4's teletext services. He also wrote ITV's daily teletext soap opera, 'Park Avenue', for five years. He then went on to freelance for various newspapers, including the Independent and the Sun, and also helped set up a financial news service for CNN. In 1997, he became editor for BSkyB's teletext services and set up their shares and finance service. While there he also set up various entertainment phone lines in conjunction with BSkyB, including a Buffy the Vampire Slayer phone line that made him nearly £250,000.

He left full-time work in 2001 to trade and run his own businesses, which included a cafe in London that he later sold, doubling his money on the initial purchase. While at BSkyB, Robbie broadcast a diary of his share trades, which became hugely popular. He transferred the diary to his website, www.nakedtrader.co.uk, which became one of the most-read financial websites in the UK. Between 2002 and 2005 he wrote a column for the Sunday Times, 'My DIY Pension', featuring share buys and sells made for his pension fund which he runs himself in a SIPP. He managed to double the money in his pension fund from £40,000 to £80,000 in under three years, as chronicled in these articles. By mid-2011 he had turned it into £250,000. Robbie now writes a weekly column for ADVFN.com. Robbie has made a tax-free gain of well over £1,000,000 from trading shares since 1999, making a profit every year, even during market downturns. His public trades alone - detailed on his website - have made more than £900,000.

He lives in a riverside apartment on the Thames with his wife, Elizabeth, and young son Christopher. His hobbies include chess, running, swimming, horse racing, and trading shares from his bedroom, erm ... naked. After all, he wouldn't be seen dead in a thong ... (you might catch him in Speedos).

Product Description

Review

"This very readable book is chock-full of advice about techniques that work for Burns and how he picks shares."
-Financial Times

"The book covers an impressive amount of ground, from the basics of setting up as a trader, to the meat of strategies and psychology, and plenty of honest examples of where things have gone wrong. As an introduction to the world of shares, The Naked Trader scores highly." - Dominic Picarda, Investors Chronicle

"The tell-it-to-you-straight style will appeal to those who fancy dabbling in the stock market but are put off by the jargon and City gent image ... designed to be easy to dip in and out of ... makes share dealing sound fun and tempting." --Daily Telegraph

As someone brand new to trading, I expected a trading 'guide' to be full of technical jargon that I'd have to wade through before extracting a few decent nuggets of information that I would subsequently do nothing with as I moved on to yet another money making idea.

But no - this book was insightful, funny, inspirational, but also full of caution to never trust those pesky 'get rich quick' schemes. I genuinely whizzed through the pages (retaining most of the information I might add) due to the humour, candor, and enthusiasm of Mr Burns - and I came out of the other side full of ideas and excitement about my first foray into the market.

If you are intersted in trading, and want a light hearted read that is packed full of serious tips and techniques - this book is for you. Im very thankfull that I 'invested' my money on this, and if all of the trading decisions I make from here are just as good as the one I made to buy this book I will soon be writing volume 5!

Now, must dash as I need to get my bank details to a long lost cousin in Zimbabwe who is going to transfer me a million pounds.........

I’m no expert – I’ve dabbled in a few frustrating funds over the last year – but The Naked Trader is exactly for people like me (beginners) so I feel fully qualified to tell you it’s bloody excellent.

If you’re interested in the esoteric (and probably irrelevant) vagueries of value investing at multi-billion pound funds, buy another book.

If, however, you want a concrete process – set out in logical steps – for how to clarify your objectives, how to build a solid strategy that will serve those objectives well and how to implement a sensible tactical plan, this is your book.

Robbie Burns speaks in a strange language that is miles apart from anything I’ve ever heard from a trader, bulletin board wonk or financial hack: Plain English.

He even admits when he’s been wrong. But not just with stock picks – you’d expect that. In The Naked Trader, Burns prints part of a critical review by a ‘chartist guru’ of the previous edition. His response? “Fair comment”!

The overwhelming message from this easy read is “have fun but be careful…and always have a plan”. Oh, and “there’s no finer companion to the stock market investor than a nice piece of toast”. I highly recommend The Naked Trader. You'll enjoy it.

This is an excellent update to Robbie's previous books and well worth buying even if you have the earlier editions. Plain, common sense advice on trading shares and an entertaining read too.

I would describe this book as the lightbulb that illuminates the black art of share trading. Everything you need to know is explained in a jargon free, relaxed and amusing way. Where to find shares worth considering, the research necessary before buying and then how to buy, hold and sell. All you need is this book, a basic computer and some cash, to become a serious investor. - PS. Gamblers put your money on another donkey running at Epsom as this book won`t be for you!!

Robbie makes investing sound achievable while ensuring you understand the risks you will face. I learnt so much from this book, and his winning strategies section is a good read. He has a very approachable and amusing style of writing, which helps embed some of the ideas into your brain quite quickly.

I intended to read a chapter a day, but found it so absorbing I finished reading this book in one sitting (thanks Robbie, got NOTHING done that day!).

Ive read all Robbies books, attended his seminar, am a big fan of his web site, I don't trade like Robbie, but I do limit my losses to small ones, a trick I learned from book one. Theres tons of good advice like that, written in a simple English style. He has saved me a fortune, don't trade a penny, until you have read his book, and this is another good one.

This is a fantastic, effortlessly informative book. It's written in plain English - for humans beings, not finance robots. It's thick like a textbook, but I ripped through it in no time like it was a comic, really engaging stuff.

I didn't know much about stocks and trading before picking this up, but now I feel like I have a really solid foundation on to build on. I definately recommend.

This is a brilliant book. I started trading as a beginner without it's sound advice and made silly uninformed mistakes. After reading I completely changed my strategy and have been making a surprisingly good steady profit. It's fun to read and completely without incomprehensible jargon and 'get rich quick' phoniness.
