Deadly Art of Stock Manipulation

I chanced across an interesting article titled The Deadly Art of Stock Manipulation. It’s a quick low-down on how the stock markets work, and definitely worth reading. The book¬†Reminiscences of a Stock Operator goes into more detail on how stock manipulation is done, but the article is a pretty good summary. The 10 rules highlighted … Continue reading

I picked up this book because it contained some materials about trade processing (e.g. clearing and settlement).

All 3 indices (S&P 500, DJ, Nasdaq) have erased the gains made since the QE3 announcement on September 13, 2012.
