To the amateur investor, buying and selling shares can be a baffling, terrifying, and sometimes, expensive game. It can also be exciting, fun, and very profitable. All you need is some practical guidance, a sensible strategy, and a little confidence. In First Steps in Shares, Peter Temple gives you the practical tools to start investing successfully. Starting with an explanation of how share markets work, and some simple ways of analysing company accounts and share price movements, the book also goes on to cover the mechanics of share dealing. He looks at whether share investing is right for you and at the best methods of combining different shares so that you only run the risks you want to. Peter explains how to decide whether a share price is cheap or not, and how to assess the relative merits of different shares. He also investigates other forms of investing such as bonds, options, tracker funds, and investment trusts, as well as how to invest online. Peter worked as a city analyst for 18 years, and has been a financial journalist for thirteen. He has also been an active, and successful private trader for the past 15 years. He shares his own dealing experiences with readers, including both successes and failures, and the lessons to be learnt from them. By cutting through all the jargon used by the professionals, he explains simply how investment choices and market influences fit together, enabling you to invest with confidence and make your money work for you.
