Synopsis: Recent market turbulence makes it abundantly clear how important it is to understand the key markets. This book is the definitive guide to why different markets exist, how they operate, and how they are interrelated.

Extensively revised and updated, the new Fifth Edition of Guide to Financial Markets brings the reader up to date with the latest developments in financial instruments and provides a clear and incisive guide to this increasingly complex world.

With chapters on the markets that deal with money, foreign exchange, equities, bonds, commodities, futures, options, and other derivatives, this new edition looks at why these markets exist, how they work, and who trades in them, and provides a rundown of the factors that affect prices and rates.

From the Back Cover:

The credit crunch and ensuing financial crisis showed just how volatile the financial markets can be. Even slight movements in market prices can have substantial effects on national economies, businesses and institutional investors such as pension funds. Individual investors, meanwhile, face choices among highly complex financial products that are increasingly difficult to get to grips with. Astute use of the financial markets can make all the difference to the bottom line. But in order to act astutely you must understand what you are doing.

The Guide to Financial Markets provides a clear explanation of the different markets. It goes well beyond stocks and bonds to explain the purposes and uses of equity futures and options, securitised instruments, and innovations such as the credit derivatives that can help manage risk but can also prove toxic when not used carefully. And so for anyone who wants a good understanding of:

  • why markets matter

  • international fixed-income markets

  • foreign-exchange markets

  • equity markets

  • money markets

  • futures and options markets

  • bond markets

  • derivatives markets

  • securitisation

there is no better reference source than this fully revised and updated fifth edition of the Guide to Financial Markets.
