As someone trying to make their own way in the world of stock market investment, this book has proved an excellent choice. It has given me the knowledge I need to invest on my own with confidence; enabling me to participate in the market as an active investor with the help of a wealth of web links that lead me directly to where I need to be in the world of financial investment. Until reading this book, I was not aware of just how vital the internet had become to being an informed and, in turn, successful investor.
This book is aimed at readers that are interested in becoming active investors; no longer reliant on financial advisors who not only take a commission but often rely on passive investment strategies that do not always result in the best returns for their clients.
"Success in the Stock Markets" contains in-depth analysis of the current market place which is, throughout, set against the backdrop of the history of the stock market. The all encompassing nature of this book makes it an essential read for anyone seriously considering investing in the stock market.
I invest in funds rather than speculating on individual shares. That said, I can drive a car, but I also like to know what is happening mechanically, even though I entrust mechanical matters to specialists. I have read a few books on investing and find that Dermod's book is not only informative, but a great ongoing reference tool. As different factors evolve, geographically, politically and economically, amongst many other variables in life, it is almost impossible to predict the effects on daily developments and events on an investor's portfolio or his/her investment profile and objectives. That said, and bearing in mind that 'Time in the Market' is a key investment ingredient for me rather than speculating, being able to regularly reach for a reference book to recap on the mechanics of investing in the stock market, is a useful tool and provides a degree of confidence through the peaks and troughs. Knowing what is going on, whether it is working for you or against you is a very comforting feeling. Success in the Stock Market by Dermod J Sweeney sits in my study, within easy reach, as a complete read, and a constant reference book.
Really pleased with this. Great practical guide to accessing the stock market online, as well as an interesting and entertaining read. Clear definitions, and handy weblinks to turn ideas into action while reading.
The financial market is only for the professional investors. Wrong, read this book and the financial jungle becomes much easier to navigate following Dermod Sweeneys comprehensive explanations and help, to as he says, 'map alternative routes'. Before putting your toe in the water read this book.
This is the best book I have read on how to make money from the stock market. It gives a great understanding of the investment industry coupled with how the internet can be used to allow a small private investor to compete with and beat the overpaid fund managers. I have bought a number of books over the years but this is the first one that really gives me the confidence to get stuck in and start boosting my pension fund. Your first investment decision should be to buy this book and all the subsequent ones get a lot easier.
