In A Mathematician Plays the Stock Market best-selling author John Allen Paulos demonstrates what the tools of mathematics can tell us about the vagaries of the stock market. Employing his trademark stories, vignettes, paradoxes, and puzzles (and even a film treatment), Paulos addresses every thinking reader's curiosity about the market: Is it efficient? Is it rational? Is there anything to technical analysis, fundamental analysis, and other supposedly time-tested methods of picking stocks? How can one quantify risk? What are the most common scams? What light do fractals, network theory, and common psychological foibles shed on investor behaviour? Are there any approaches to investing that truly outperform the major indexes? Can a deeper knowledge of mathematics help beat the odds?All of these questions are explored with the engaging erudition that made Paulos's A Mathematician Reads the Newspaper and Innumeracy favourites with both armchair mathematicians and readers who want to think like them. Paulos also shares the cautionary tale of his own long and disastrous love affair with WorldCom. In the tradition of Burton Malkiel's A Random Walk Down Wall Street and Jeremy Siegel's Stocks for the Long Run , this wry and illuminating book is for anyone, investor or not, who follows the markets-or knows someone who does.

Descrizione libro Perseus Books Group. Paperback. Condizione: New. 216 pages. Dimensions: 7.9in. x 5.3in. x 0.7in.Can a renowned mathematician successfully outwit the stock market Not when his biggest investment is WorldCom. In A Mathematician Plays the Stock Market, best-selling author John Allen Paulos employs his trademark stories, vignettes, paradoxes, and puzzles to address every thinking readers curiosity about the market--Is it efficient Is it random Is there anything to technical analysis, fundamental analysis, and other supposedly time-tested methods of picking stocks How can one quantify risk What are the most common scams Are there any approaches to investing that truly outperform the major indexesBut Pauloss tour through the irrational exuberance of market mathematics doesnt end there. An unrequited (and financially disastrous) love affair with WorldCom leads Paulos to question some cherished ideas of personal finance. He explains why data mining is a self-fulfilling belief, why momentum investing is nothing more than herd behavior with a lot of mathematical jargon added, why the ever-popular Elliot Wave Theory cannot be correct, and why you should take Warren Buffets fundamental analysis with a grain of salt. Like Burton Malkiels A Random Walk Down Wall Street, this clever and illuminating book is for anyone, investor or not, who follows the markets--or knows someone who does. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Codice articolo 9780465054817
