    Interesting tidbits

    The average gains/losses should be taken with a grain of salt although the overall trends are a good measure to tweak a portfolio.

    Not Suited for eBook

    I made the unfortunate mistake of purchasing the nook version. First, the Kindle one is ten dollars cheaper (mildly irritating). Second, this product is not suited for an eBook - it's meant as a desk calendar.

    The text between the weekly calendar pages is enlightening and very useful to the stock trader. Seasonal, annual, and election year trends, for example, are well presented and completely documented. Loads of great information that will surely benefit the investor.

    I subsequently purchased two copies of hardcover version; one as a gift. It's that good. Just stay away from the nook book.
