SYNOPSIS : Visual Finance is a powerful, simple tool that you can learn in a couple of hours, and easily apply to real life. Over the past five years, this model has been used in thousands of "finance for non-financial managers" training sessions in more than 30 countries. Now for the first time, it has been finally released in a paperback format. Accounting is perceived as being tedious, complicated and too theoretical. Non-financial managers are less than enthusiastic about accounting. One of the possible reasons might be the way business schools teach it. In a recent study only 46% of respondents have average or higher financial literacy and could understand financial statements. Stop avoiding financial topics during team meetings. Save your company from making costly mistakes and begin to maximize on all the valuable opportunities.

SYNOPSIS : This book makes quantitative finance (almost) easy! Its new visual approach makes quantitative finance accessible to a broad audience, including those without strong backgrounds in math or finance. Michael Lovelady introduces a simplified but powerful technique for calculating profit probabilities and graphically representing the outcomes. Lovelady's "pictures" highlight key characteristics of structured securities such as the increased likelihood of profits, the level of virtual dividends being generated, and market risk exposures. After explaining his visual approach, he applies it to one of today's hottest investing trends: lower-volatility, higher-income strategies. Because of today's intense interest in alternative investments and structured securities, this book reviews their unique advantages to investors, managers and advisors of retail and institutional portfolios. Visual Quantitative Finance focuses on key topics directly related to the design, pricing and communication of structured securities, including stochastic price projections and the framework underlying options pricing formulas. The key is Lovelady's explicit use of probabilities in a spreadsheet format. By working directly with the underlying assumptions, he transforms the Black-Scholes framework into five columns of a simple Excel spreadsheet, with no complicated formulas -- making structured securities far more intuitive to design, evaluate and manage. For all investors, students, and financial professionals who are interested in quantitative finance, risk measurement, options pricing, structured securities, or financial model building - and for everyone who needs to explain these topics to someone else. For those with quantitative backgrounds, this guide offers powerful new tools for design and risk management, simplifying the design and evaluation of innovative instruments. For everyone else, Lovelady makes the subject comprehensible for the first time.

SYNOPSIS : The Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading is an in-depth, easy-to-use guide to trading the financial markets with the Elliott Wave Principle. In many ways this book picks up where Frost & Prechter's classic Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior left off, which makes it "required reading" if you want to build a solid foundation in Elliott wave analysis. Co-authored by two of Elliott Wave International's most trusted analysts -- Wayne Gorman and Jeffrey Kennedy -- their trading insights offer a perfect blend of traditional textbook and real-world application. Join Kennedy and Gorman as they provide step-by-step instruction in how to trade with Elliott. They include scores of real market charts that depict the Elliott wave patterns, which will help you measure the strength of trends, forecast market turning points, plus identify trading opportunities. What's more, this illustrated guide also explains how to use supporting technical indicators that can build confidence in your Elliott wave analysis. Gorman and Kennedy know that "simple" does not mean "easy." Their combined expertise will help you build confidence in your analysis, create an effective trading plan, and better manage your trades. Whether your trading style is conservative or aggressive, their charts and techniques can help identify high-confidence opportunities. Each chapter includes key points & smart investor tips, such as how to "Prepare yourself to take advantage of opportunities even when your preferred count does not materialize," and "Let the market commit to you before you commit to the market." Elliott wave analysis recognizes that in financial markets, mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence. Use this book to recognize those wave patterns, and anticipate market moves that most traders never see coming. The Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading is the new criterion for any serious technical trader.
