The Naked Trader: How Anyone Can Make Money Trading Shares

The Naked Trader: How Anyone Can Make Money Trading Shares

by RobbieBurns (Author)


In this revealing new book, top trader Robbie Burns cuts through the jargon to give you the low-down on the strategies you need to make money from share dealing. Robbie, aka the Naked Trader, is an expert and highly entertaining guide to the sometimes baffling world of the stock market. In between cups of tea, rounds of toast and the occasional 'cuddle' with Mrs Naked Trader, he describes the straightforward techniques that have enabled him to succeed in the markets and escape the rat race. The book kicks off with the basics such as: the best websites, magazines and newspapers to look at; the kit you need to get cracking; and some key tips for choosing a broker. Robbie, then, gives you the essential techniques for picking the good shares and, just as importantly, avoiding the bad ones, and finishes up with some more advanced topics like how to make money even when shares fall. Along the way you also get the chance to spend a day with the Naked Trader with an exclusive extract from his private (and revealing) diary. Throughout, everything is explained in plain (sometimes too plain! - Ed) English and with a sense of humour, honesty and enthusiasm rarely found in books about money. Not afraid to bare his soul (among other things) the Naked Trader even reveals some of the painful mistakes that he has made in the markets to help make sure that you do not fall into the same traps. There may not be any guaranteed short cuts to trading success (as an important Naked Trader rule states - 'If it sounds too good to be true it probably is'), but this book gives you everything that you need to learn to trade successfully, and perhaps even escape the 9 to 5 slog like the Naked Trader has. Packed with practical advice and delivered in a down-to-earth style, this book is all you need to get started. So, grab your laptop and get trading - your naked future awaits!
