About the Author:

Author Nora Peterson brings more than three decades of in-the-trenches securities and futures trading experience to Wall Street Lingo. In the 1970s, she screened stocks by spending long hours pouring over binders of Value Line Investment Surveys and Standard & Poor s research reports at the library. In the 1980s, she taught herself to chart pork belly futures at a desk in her broker s office. Today she trades securities from a state-of-the-art computerized control station in her home. The shelves of her office are lined with reference books, but the one tool she could never find was a dictionary that didn t intimidate or overwhelm the everyday investor. So she wrote one.

Review:

This book is a tremendous resource when dealing with the ever changing, complex world of financial markets and terminology! Nora has put together a deeply researched and extensive compilation of Wall Street terms and definitions that will be useful for novice investors and experienced financial professionals. It is a must have home or office desk reference. --Ted Williams, Certified Public Accountant & Certified Internal Auditor
