Bloomberg Visual Guide to Candlestick Charting
Paperback ISBN: 1118098455
The easy-to-use guide to interpreting candlestick charts and derivative markets Candlestick charts are an effective way of visualizing price movements and, due to the increased interest in the complex derivatives market, they are being used more and more widely. A combination of a line-chart and a bar-chart, where each bar represents the range of price movement over a given time interval, candlestick charts are most often used in technical analysis of equity and currency price patterns. A guide to the most used charts, The Candlestick Glossary is arranged in an easy-to-use manner, providing a quick reference for those new to the field. Candlestick charts are formed with the help of the opening, high, low, and closing price of the day—if the opening price is above the closing price then a filled candlestick is drawn, and these charts are visual aids for decision making in forex, stock, commodities, and options trading. - Contains alphabetical explanations of over 200 candlestick and related terms - Includes daily charts of 50 companies, and six-month charts for comparative explanations of candlesticks with Western-style technical indicators - Written by Michael C. Thomsett, author of over sixty books and hundreds of articles, including the bestselling Getting Started in Bonds, also published by Wiley A practical and concise resource for anyone new to this way of representing derivatives, The Candlestick Glossary presents sometimes confusing concepts in a format that is easy to understand and digest.
The Blue Way
How to Profit by Investing in a Better World
Paperback ISBN: 1416547355
Turning conventional wisdom on its head, The Blue Way shows why socially progressive companies that make political contributions to "blue" politicians and causes outperform "red" companies. The idea that progressives are better at businesses than conservatives will surprise most people - including many progressives. But as The Blue Way shows, in nearly every sector of the economy, blue companies are the top performers. As a result, an investor who places his money in stocks of blue companies will do better than one who chooses red companies or who chooses to invest in the market as a whole. In The Blue Way, Daniel Adamson and Joe Andrew, cofounders of Blue Investment Management, identify the companies that have the most progressive social values - fair wages, equal opportunity, environmental responsibility - and also contribute to progressive political causes (or are at least neutral). They describe the portfolio they have built around those companies, which to date has out-performed the market. Their innovative investment strategy offers a profitable approach for investors seeking a principled and successful stock portfolio. But The Blue Way is also a stirring manifesto, a call to embrace socially and politically progressive values. As the authors show, these values aren't anti-business; they are pro-American. For decades the American economy has performed better under Democratic administrations than under Republicans. Americans who "buy blue," say Adamson and Andrew, aren't just acting on their values; they are helping to grow the American economy. The authors explain how to build a "blue infrastructure," a progressive ecosystem in which companies and activists with progressive values can support blue politicians and causes. The Blue Way shows how the progressive movement can learn from the success of the blue business world and create a new progressive majority for the future.The Blue Way describes a revolutionary investment strategy back by solid financial research that benefits investors while fostering socially progressive American values.
