Mr Bitcoin - How I Became A Millionaire At 21 (Paperback): Mpho Dagada Mr Bitcoin - How I Became A Millionaire At 21 (Paperback)
Mpho Dagada
R195 R155 Discovery Miles 1 550 Save R40 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 10 working days

Most of the time, the road to riches is a closely guarded secret, until now. Jacana Media presents Mpho Dagada, one such young, self-made millionaire who in his memoir, Mr Bitcoin, shares his story of triumph and failure. He tells his story from the beginning: being brought up by business-minded and accomplished grandparents who planted in him the seeds of what it means to be successful in business.

Mpho Dagada’s interest in Bitcoin was ignited when he was in his first year at the University of Johannesburg in 2013 after opening his own laundry and cleaning service company. He invested his profits from this company in Bitcoin. He currently owns a logistics company, a chain of fast food restaurants and is in the process of developing the first black-owned cryptocurrency exchange platform.

This book is both motivational and practical, examining the errors and pitfalls that Dagada had to go through in his business pursuits. These included falling for Ponzi schemes like Kipi and losing his money on more than one occasion. Through these many lows were lessons of great value which ultimately led to the endless possibilities that Bitcoin presents for those interested in creating wealth through trading cryptocurrencies and running a successful business.

Dagada is confident in the viability of Bitcoin and ascertains that "we will never understand the money of the future without learning how money came about in the first place. Blockchain and Bitcoin are now pioneering a new online financial world. Cryptocurrencies will replace fiat money in the end, as they are faster, better and more convenient than all the earlier forms of currency."

The book clearly explains what behavioral finance indicates about observed market outcomes as well as how psychological biases potentially impact the behavior of managers. Readers see, first-hand, the implications of behavioral finance on retirement, pensions, education, debiasing, and client management. This book spends a significant amount of time examining how behavioral finance can be used by practitioners today. Readers utilize theory and applications in every chapter with a wide variety of end-of-chapter exercises, discussion questions, simulations and experiments that reinforce the book's applied approach.

Wealth is about more than just money. But how can we come to grips with our financial situation at a time when no one seems to have enough? The authors of this book believe that the answer lies beyond the balance sheet, in the mind, heart and spirit of the individual investor.

How Much Is Enough? provides a framework for the reader to find the right balance between their time, money and happiness in order to achieve financial security and personal well-being. Through a holistic approach to wealth management, based on the premise that money is only one element in the overall chemistry of a happy life, readers will learn how to: overcome the challenges that the brain’s hard-wiring and the environment place on personal health and well-being; plan and invest to achieve personal goals and aspirations; become happier and avoid wealth-destroying behaviour to improve investment results; and help their kids achieve financial security and assume financial responsibility.

Combining the latest economic theory and behavioural research with compelling stories of those who have found peace beyond their bank accounts, including Warren Buffett, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Raymond Ackerman, Bill Gates and Patrice Motsepe, How Much Is Enough? is the perfect antidote to our acquisitive, materialistic times and a must-read for anyone who wants both financial wealth and personal well-being.

The goal of investment management is to achieve the investor’s required rate of return by putting assets to their most productive use. The return should compensate the investor for the time during which the funds are committed, the expected rate of inflation and the uncertainty of the future financial benefits anticipated from the investment. Investment management is a concise, yet comprehensive introduction to investment analysis and portfolio management, specifically in the South African context.

Investment management provides a broad framework and a thorough network of guidelines for the investment management student. It focuses on investment in financial assets such as shares and bonds, and explains both fundamental and technical analysis. It investigates portfolio management and how derivative instruments such as futures, options and swaps may be used for this purpose. A chapter is devoted to the foreign exchange market and its management, and a new chapter dealing with the governance of investment management has been added. With self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter, it prepares undergraduates for postgraduate study and is written with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA® ) Level I learning outcomes in mind.

Investment management is aimed at undergraduate investment management students.

Johan Marx (editor) is a professor in financial and investment management at the University of South Africa (Unisa). He is the author of five financial management publications, and has presented and published numerous articles. He has a keen interest in financial markets.

About the Book:

High-frequency traders have been called many things--from masters of the universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even predators. Everyone in the business of investing has an opinion of speed traders, but how many really understand how they operate? The shadow people of the investing world, today's high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile--until now.

In "The Speed Traders," Edgar Perez, founder of the prestigious business networking community Golden Networking, opens the door to the secretive world of high-frequency trading (HFT). Inside, prominent figures of HFT drop their guard and speak with unprecedented candidness about their trade.

Perez begins with an overview of computerized trading, which formally began on February 8, 1971, when NASDAQ launched the world's first electronic market with 2,500 over-the-counter stocks and which has evolved into the present-day practice of making multiple trades in a matter of microseconds. He then picks the brains of today's top players. Manoj Narang (Tradeworx), Peter van Kleef (Lakeview Arbitrage), and Aaron Lebovitz (Infinium Capital Management) are just a few of the luminaries who decided to break their silence and speak openly to Perez. Virtually all of the expertise available from the world of speed trading is packed into these pages.

You'll get insight from HFT's most influential trailblazers on the important issues, including: The basics of launching an HFT platform The important role speed traders play in providing market liquidity The real story behind the "flash crash" of May 2010 Emerging global HFT markets M&A and consolidation among the world's biggest exchanges

"The Speed Traders" is the most comprehensive, revealing work available on the most important development in trading in generations. High-frequency trading will no doubt play an ever larger role as computer technology advances and the global exchanges embrace fast electronic access.

Essential reading for regulators and investors alike, "The Speed Traders" explains everything there is to know about how today's high-frequency traders make millions--one cent at a time.

Efficiently Inefficient - How Smart Money Invests and Market Prices Are Determined (Paperback): Lasse Heje Pedersen Efficiently Inefficient - How Smart Money Invests and Market Prices Are Determined (Paperback)
Lasse Heje Pedersen
R535 R405 Discovery Miles 4 050 Save R130 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Efficiently Inefficient describes the key trading strategies used by hedge funds and demystifies the secret world of active investing. Leading financial economist Lasse Heje Pedersen combines the latest research with real-world examples and interviews with top hedge fund managers to show how certain trading strategies make money--and why they sometimes don't. Pedersen views markets as neither perfectly efficient nor completely inefficient. Rather, they are inefficient enough that money managers can be compensated for their costs through the profits of their trading strategies and efficient enough that the profits after costs do not encourage additional active investing. Understanding how to trade in this efficiently inefficient market provides a new, engaging way to learn finance. Pedersen analyzes how the market price of stocks and bonds can differ from the model price, leading to new perspectives on the relationship between trading results and finance theory. He explores several different areas in depth--fundamental tools for investment management, equity strategies, macro strategies, and arbitrage strategies--and he looks at such diverse topics as portfolio choice, risk management, equity valuation, and yield curve logic. The book's strategies are illuminated further by interviews with leading hedge fund managers: Lee Ainslie, Cliff Asness, Jim Chanos, Ken Griffin, David Harding, John Paulson, Myron Scholes, and George Soros. Efficiently Inefficient effectively demonstrates how financial markets really work. Free problem sets are available online at http: //www.lhpedersen.com
