Overview

Stock Investing For Canadians For Dummies, 3rd Edition includes information on stock investing in both bear and bull markets; unique investment segments; stock investing for different types of situations; and examples straight from the real world of stock investing as they have occurred in the past three years. With up-to-date references and resources, this book is the most reliable resource for the new stock market investor.

 

New in this edition:

  • Investigating how governments affect markets: The authors present an unbiased look at how government intervention can and has shaped the markets, so that investors know what to watch for and can respond appropriately to protect their investments — or even benefit.
  • Explaining economics: As governments around the world intervene in the markets, media coverage of the economic theory behind these moves (and the economic theories that deplore them) has expanded greatly — and most of it's muddled. New content in the book explains what investors need to know about economics.
  • Exploring stock trading: For readers that want to move stocks quickly rather than invest for the long run, the authors offer a crash course in the fundamentals of trading, and some critical do's and don'ts.

 

This edition also offers a brand-new part of tens, focusing on how investors can protect their money and spot warning signs that a good stock is about to go bad.
