9780028638492: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Money on Wall Street, Third Edition (3rd Edition)

More people than ever before are saving for and trading in the stock market. Baby boomers have socked away nearly half a trillion dollars for investing over the last four years. Everyone wants to increase their investment, but how do you really learn the ins and outs of how the stock market works? The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Money on Wall Street, Third Edition, gives you all you need to know--everything from how mutual funds work to which market strategies are safest. Should you choose to invest with Uncle Sam? What is a no-load fund and why could it be better? How do you plan for taxes when you sell? Are bonds for you? What is day-trading and why can it be good--or bad? What do all those government numbers mean for the future of the market? Answers to all these questions and more can be found in The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Money on Wall Street, Third Edition.

Review:

Like the other books in the Complete Idiot's series, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Money on Wall Street is upbeat and geared to the absolute beginner. Starting very simply with how to come up with investment pin money, Christy Heady guides the reader slowly but surely down a road paved with CDs, mutual funds, stop orders, and dividend reinvestment plans. Heady does a good job of demystifying Wall Street lingo and priming the reader for talking to a broker or financial planner. Though the pace of the book is glacial enough that even neophytes may get impatient, there are some good warnings and tips that will save you money, and the slightly nervous investing beginner will find that the simple explanations of DRIPs, bonds, calls, puts, and futures makes it worth getting just to keep as a first reference before moving on to bigger titles.

About the Author:

Christy Heady, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Managing Your Money, is a syndicated financial journalist and Wall Street expert who writes for Consumer's Digest, the Chicago Tribune, and other major publications. She knows exactly how to help you make money on Wall Street!
