Bill Cara is the internationally known author of “Lessons from the Trader Wizard”. Since 2004, at billcara.com he has written daily about investing and trading for many thousands of investors around the world. Because of his depth of coverage, obvious knowledge of, and love for capital markets, Bill’s blog was selected as “Best of the Web” and “Our Favorite” by Forbes Magazine and also applauded by Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, and Investment Executive publications.
Nobody graduates with a PhD in Stock Market. Capital markets are global and are complex and move in ways no novice can comprehend. Bill brings a vast multi-decade knowledge of expertise from the top down in this book that every level of market participant can refer to for guidance. It's a BUY!
I picked up on Bill’s website about four years ago, as all that has come to pass started going down. I wanted to know why. The why we pretty much know now, but in making the call for the ‘Trade of the Generation’ (TOG – Sell bonds and buy gold) back in 2008/9, I’ve come to learn from Bill that the market is a marathon, and it takes a specific set of skills to be able to run that marathon.
When I bought the book, I was hopeful that I could understand and use a good part of it. Actually, I have understood most of it. The level of information is comprehensive yet explained in terms I can understand. It will be an important book for me for some time to come. If you are investing in markets or plan to invest in markets, this book would be a good investment in education.
This book is a must-read for any investor on the stock market. I found the book informative and helpful, and Mr. Cara is generous in the way he shares his techniques and sources. He is that rare combination of thinker and do-er, and I cannot recommend it too highly. The cost of the book is the best investment you will make.
Bill Cara (aka William Ciccarelli) has produced an important book on modern financial markets. He has achieved this in spite of: 1. the difficulty of going from blog to book 2. the difficulty of writing a first book and attempting to pack a lifetime of knowledge into 404 pages 3. the difficulty in deciding on the knowledge and experience of the targeted reader
The book represents the foundational knowledge behind his methodologies. It synthesizes a systematic approach to market/stock analysis utilizing several market disciplines and their respective tools. He also provides resources for other information he considers important to investing/trading skills and lets the reader in on the inside game Wall St. plays against the individual investor-helping level the playing field.
