ROBERT A. SCHWARTZ The primary objective of this book is to consider how the inclusion of electronic call auction trading would affect the performance of our U.S. equity markets. The papers it contains focus on the call auction and its role in a hybrid market strucÂ ture. The purpose is to increase understanding of this trading environment, and to consider the design of a more efficient stock market. This book had its origin in a symposium, Electronic Call Market Trading, that was held at New York University's Salomon Center on April 20, 1995. Nearly 150 people from 16 different countries attended. At the time, three proprietary trading systems based on call auction principles (The Arizona Stock Exchange, Posit, and Instinet's Crossing Network) had been operating for several years and interest already existed in the procedure. Since the symposium, increasing use has been made of call auctions, primarily by the ParisBourse in its Nouveau Marchi: and CAC markets, by Deutsche Borse in its Xetra market, and in the U.S. by OptiMark. Rather than being used as stand alone systems, however, call auctions are now being interfaced with continuous markets so as to produce hybrid market structures, a development that is given considerable attention to in a number of the chapters in this book.
This is the book that your trading broker does not want you to read. The author writes about the "illusions" used by the deceptive trading establishment that lead you to believe that you are in control of your trading decisions and that you can be a successful stock market trader. Books by various so called trading experts, colorful charting indicators, fancy trading platforms from different brokers, on-line trading seminars and especially trading systems found on the internet are just some of the "illusions" that you will see, but just as in magic, you better not believe. They are all there to peak your curiosity and take your money.Here is a fact that you can believe. Most day traders and swing traders lose money. Period. About 90% of day traders and swing traders lose most of their trading capital within one year. Their dreams of being a day trader quickly turned to nightmares. The stock market will take your money at the same time make you think that it is your fault that you lost. That you did not follow that book or trading system the correct way. That you did something wrong. Almost all traders have a great amount of pride and spend the last dollar in their trading account trying to prove that they can do it right.The author discusses many of the magical myths, lies, manipulations, deceptions, and facts of day trading and swing trading the stock market and related indices.
Most people I meet tend to either think the Stock Market is complex and difficult or that it is easy to make money on the Stock Market. I fell into the category of thinking the Stock Market was easy but I soon found out that there are rules to trading and if applied correctly, could lead to profitable trading and investing.
I have since taught people how to trade and invest wisely and dispel the many myths surrounding the Stock Market.
This book on Stock Trading & Investing for Beginners has been published to give the reader an essential foundation as they venture into the exciting world of Trading & Investing.
In recent years, exchanges on both sides of the Atlantic have been extensively reengineered, and their organizational structures have changed from non-profit, membership organizations to for-profit, demutualized organizations. Concurrently, new alternative trading systems have emerged and the traditional functions of broker/dealer firms have evolved. How have these changes affected the delivery of that mission? How has the efficiency of capital raising in the IPO market been impacted? These are among the key questions addressed in this book, titled after the Baruch College Conference, The Economic Function of a Stock Market. Featuring contributions from a panel of scholars, academicians, policymakers, and industry leaders, this volume examines current issues affecting market quality, including challenges in the marketplace, growth opportunities, and IPO capital raising in the global economy.
The Zicklin School of Business Financial Markets Series presents the insights emerging from a sequence of conferences hosted by the Zicklin School at Baruch College for industry professionals, regulators, and scholars. Much more than historical documents, the transcripts from the conferences are edited for clarity, perspective and context; material and comments from subsequent interviews with the panelists and speakers are integrated for a complete thematic presentation. Each book is focused on a well delineated topic, but all deliver broader insights into the quality and efficiency of the U.S. equity markets and the dynamic forces changing them.?
