Praise for The Equity Trader Course +CD

"Without trading, investing is an academic exercise. This book and its computer simulation bridge the gap and should be required reading for traders, old and new, and anyone who wants to understand why America's equity markets are the richest and deepest in the world. Part primer and part advanced discussion of modern trading techniques and technology, this book should be in every trading room. Authors Schwartz, Francioni, and Weber—along with a slew of important contributors—have created the definitive course on equity trading. Ignore this book at your investing peril!"
—Theodore R. Aronson, CFA, Aronson+Johnson+Ortiz, and former chair of the board of governors, CFA Institute
