"Niederhoffer and Kenner dispense pearls of wisdom for both the seasoned professional and the novice about investing and much more. Though you may not agree with all that they write – I can’t imagine anyone would – they will compel you to think and very often, cause you to smile." --Mark P. KritzmanFrom the Inside Flap:
In investing as in life, it’s not whether you get knocked down–because eventually you will–it’s whether you rise from defeat. Risk of success and failure is simply part of the human experience and is magnified in the financial markets, where speculation–the act of assuming a business risk–rules.
In the follow-up to the critically acclaimed, bestselling investment classic Education of a Speculator, market veteran Victor Niederhoffer, joined by CNBC Money co-columnist Laurel Kenner, shares his comeback experience from the firing line. By examining the remedial lessons of defeat, they show that it is possible to climb the stairway to success–even under abysmal market conditions.
In Practical Speculation, Niederhoffer and Kenner explore the backdrop of myth, misinformation, and propaganda that bombards investors daily through every media channel. Superstitions, backward looking observations, and out and out old wives tales are exposed. Then, after debunking market fallacies, they provide the antidote to manipulation–the scientific method–a testing that verifies the probabilities of obtaining practical profits. Niederhoffer and Kenner uncover and test tradable ideas so you can become a more independent and successful investor.
Comprising two equally informative parts, Practical Speculation strikes a perfect balance between the need to understand market myths and how they are propagated and testable, tradable strategies for speculators. The first part, "Mumbo Jumbo and Moonshine," dissects the common errors, fictions, fallacies, and propaganda that may induce you to "lean the wrong way" and lose money to market players such as brokers, specialists, analysts, and investment bankers. Niederhoffer and Kenner clearly describe what’s wrong with most approaches to investing. They debunk the myths and propaganda surrounding the earnings-return relationship and technical analysis; present a case study of chronic negativism, which can be just as harmful as overly bullish propaganda, through an interview with financial journalist Alan Abelson; deflate the ballyhoo about value stocks and its underlying philosophy by confronting financial legend
Benjamin Graham; run the media’s market coverage under a whole-body scan; and quantify the effects of hubris and humility on individual stocks.
After tearing down the barriers to profitable investing in Part One, Niederhoffer and Kenner outline a constructive series of approaches in Part Two of Practical Speculation that will serve as a solid foundation for making rational decisions about the markets. In-depth insight and expert advice guide you every step of the way. You’ll learn how to survive and thrive in the markets by setting up a defend/attack game plan; avoiding false correlations; utilizing market thermodynamics to make predictions; negotiating an edge when trading; and profit from studying the patterns linking real estate and business cycles. With additional discussion about the story of Value Line and the biotechnology revolution, Practical Speculation skillfully bridges the gap between theory and practice.
In the quest for investment success, there are no shortcuts. Practical Speculation gets to the heart of wealth creation by providing honest, accurate advice and everlasting techniques that will enable you to confidently make independent decisions about your investments.
