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

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 is also the author of The Naked Trader's Guide to Spread Betting. 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).

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.

The book is very funny and has been written in simple way without too much buzzwords.
His advises on picking up shares are interesting, specially fundamentals and researches on companies before jumping on technical analysis...
Robbie use two ways to pickup stock which are ration of market cap/net profit should be around 8 and net debt/profit must not exceeds 3.

A very informative book that explains things simply in plain English and without the use of jargon.

I am striving for the day that I can mooch around naked in my living room, drinking tea and eating toast while trading with the outside world.

I've read several trading books and this is by far the best. Robbie successfully captures all the important stuff and puts it across in an understandable way. His writing is very engaging and full of humour, and he demystifies many aspects of trading. He cuts through much of the nonsense that's out there and gives the reader some very clear guidance on what to watch out for. The book contains practical steps and systems with links to useful online resources. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in trading.

This book is an incredibly accessible introduction to share trading. The author takes a complex topic and breaks it down into simple steps which disguise the wisdom hidden in his humourous observations about the human condition. I brought this book a week ago and couldn't put it down.
I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone new to share trading; as a guide that will educate, scare and excite you in equal measure. It inspired me!

I've read quite a few trading/investing books and this book is by far my favourite. In fact I've now read it twice! I found most books on this subject tend to be a bit heavy going, but this is an enjoyable read, down to earth and includes some very practical examples and ideas. It's probably more of a short term investing book rather than day trading, which is more suited to my style. So it avoids any complex charting information more associated with the day trading style. So I would recommend this book if you want some common sense information and written in a lighthearted style.
