Market Sense & Nonsense ~ Jack D. Schwager
When it comes to the markets, academics, professionals and novice
investors have one thing in common: They all operate on assumptions that
fail to hold up in the harsh light of reality. The following are a
sampling of observations about how markets really work:
High-Frequency Trading: A Practical Guide to Algorithmic Strategies and Trading Systems By Irene Aldridge
Financial markets are undergoing rapid innovation due to the
continuing proliferation of computer power and algorithms. These
developments have created a new investment discipline called
high-frequency trading. Despite the demand for information on this
topic, little has been published to help investors understand and
implement high-frequency trading systems—until now.
industry expert Irene Aldridge, High-Frequency Trading offers the first
applied "how to do it" manual to building high-frequency
systems.Covering sufficient depths of material to thoroughly pinpoint
issues at hand, High-Frequency Trading leaves mathematical complexities
to their original publications, referenced throughout the book.
Page by page, this accessible guide:
Discusses the history and business environment of high-frequency trading systems
Reviews the statistical and econometric foundations of the common types of high-frequency strategies
Examines the details of modeling high-frequency trading strategies
Describes the steps required to build a quality high-frequency trading system
Addresses the issues of running, monitoring, and benchmarking high-frequency trading systems
the way, this reliable resource skillfully high-lights numerous
quantitative trading strategies—from market microstructure and event
arbitrage to deviations arbitrage—and puts the creation and management
of portfolios based on high-frequency strategies in perspective.
trading is a difficult, but profitable, endeavor that can generate
stable profits in various market conditions. But solid footing in both
the theory and practice of this discipline are essential to success.
Whether you're an institutional investor seeking a better understanding
of high-frequency operations or an individual investor looking for a new
way to trade, this book has what you need to make the most of your time
in today's dynamic markets.
Inside Apple: How America's Most Admired--and Secretive--Company Really Works
INSIDE APPLE reveals the secret systems, tactics and leadership
strategies that allowed Steve Jobs and his company to churn out hit
after hit and inspire a cult-like following for its products.
If Apple is Silicon Valley's answer to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory,
then author Adam Lashinsky provides readers with a golden ticket to step
inside. In this primer on leadership and innovation, the author will
introduce readers to concepts like the "DRI" (Apple's practice of
assigning a Directly Responsible Individual to every task) and the Top
100 (an annual ritual in which 100 up-and-coming executives are tapped a
la Skull & Bones for a secret retreat with company founder Steve
Based on numerous interviews, the audiobook offers exclusive new
information about how Apple innovates, deals with its suppliers and is
handling the transition into the Post Jobs Era. Lashinsky, a Senior
Editor at Large for Fortune, knows the subject cold: In a 2008 cover
story for the magazine entitled The Genius Behind Steve: Could
Operations Whiz Tim Cook Run The Company Someday he predicted that Tim
Cook, then an unknown, would eventually succeed Steve Jobs as CEO.
While Inside Apple is ostensibly a deep dive into one, unique company
(and its ecosystem of suppliers, investors, employees and competitors),
the lessons about Jobs, leadership, product design and marketing are
universal. They should appeal to anyone hoping to bring some of that
Apple magic to their own company, career, or creative endeavor.

The silver markets rose slightly during the course of the week, but are
closing right at the $19 level. The real question then becomes whether
or not we can continue to go higher, or are we starting to fall? Quite
frankly, we will not feel comfortable with a long-term buy until we get
clear of the $20 level, so we would be a bit cautious at this point.
However, if we break to a fresh, new low, we could see selling down to
the $15 level, and then ultimately the $13 level.

The gold markets went back and forth during the course of the week, as
we continue to meander around the $1250 level. With that, it appears
that the market simply has no real direction at the moment, and as a
result we are on the sidelines. Nonetheless, we believe that the market
will ultimately bounce from somewhere near here or just below, so we are
looking for supportive candles in order to start buying. The US Dollar
Index looks a little on the weak side at the moment, and as a result we
could see gold rise if the US dollar depreciates a bit.
