Want to really learn how to make a profit in the stock market.
I wanted to share you the interview with Michael Lewis the author of “The Big Short – Inside the Doomsday Machine”, its fascinating. John Stewart the host of the Daily show is hilarious but also has a good grip of current affairs, he also highlights the important aspects of Michael Lewis’ book. This video highlights the exact reason why you should only trust yourself when it comes to your investments. A handful of investors saw what was really happening. A quote from the interview is really compelling, Michal Lewis says;
“they [most of the Wall Street firms including AIG] figured out that there was an awful lot of money to be made from lending money to people who shouldn’t be lent money [sub-prime mortgages]; and when you do that you create lots of risk, the only way you can get that risk out there and get lots of people to take it is to disguise it. So they got really good at disguising the risk, they got so good they disguised it from themselves, they fooled themselves, it’s kinda like if you tell a lie often enough you start to believe it”, “it does not occur to anyone to say this is wrong we have to stop doing this”….”Lehman Brothers was cooking it’s books”
Need I say more. These risky sub prime investments were disguised as Triple A “AAA” rated investments. Unbelievable, but true.
Enjoy the video, skip forward to minute 14 in the video for the interview.

To perfect our trading techniques it is always important to keep absorbing knowledge and broadening our understanding of not only Stocks, but the economic, governmental and political influence on the stock market.
Having read the series of books called “Market Wizrds” by Jack D. Schwager, I remember many of the most successful traders talking about a person called Martin Zweig. They especially reference a book called “Winning on Wall Street”. I read this recently and I must say the book is really impressive. It is not a particularly entertaining and enthralling read but the lessons in the book are remarkable.
He discusses the massive impact Fiscal and Monetary policy have on the Stock Market. Read More→
Benjamin Graham “the Father of Value Investing” has strongly influenced the investment style of Warren Buffet, possibly the greatest investor of all time.
Although the book was first wrtten in the 1950′s Warren Buffet writes in the preface
“I thought then that is was by far the best book about investing ever written. I still think it is”
I also believe this is an absolutely critical book to read, and without this knowledge you are opening yourself up to investing without the pre-requisit knowledge.
I strongly recommend the revised edition with the commentary by Jasson Zweig, who adds real value to the book, relating the timeless lesson from Graham to more recent events in the Stock Market, especially the internet bubble in 2000.
