How Anyone Can Invest
Profitably In The World's Best Market.
I bought this book and reviewed it out
of respect for Jim Rogers the speculator.
In the early days Jim Rogers and George
Soros started the Quantum Fund - a huge hedge
Rogers split off to manage his own money
- and to become a world wide adventurer. Jim has been
writing best selling books that share his international
insights and travels. Rogers has continued to invest,
with the whole world as his market.
This book is not a Jim Rogers the adventurer
I have frequently recommended Rogers
first two investment books, Investment
Biker, and Adventure
In these best selling books
you share epic adventures with Jim Rogers, and you
learn useful information about
world investment markets. The learning is not just painless,
the books are a pleasurable read of the can't
wait to see what's next
Hot Commodities however
is worth the read just for the futures trading and
commodities market knowledge. I read it carefully and
found both basic and advanced future trading instruction
you intend to trade forex, gold, wheat futures, or
any other commodity; you will find this speculator's
book a profitable investment.
Jim Rogers is an uber-successful investor
that knows and shares what creates speculative gains
while avoiding unrecoverable losses.
In Hot Commodities he shares commodity
market insights, but it is not Roger's story telling
that dominates this time.
Hot Commodities appears to be a text created expressly
to provide a legacy of the
Jim Roger's philosophy of investment. This book
can be read as an extensive how
to his prior books. This book
contains techniques necessary for speculators to profit
from commodities cycles.
Of course Rogers
positions himself ahead of the cycle, and is ready for
the early moves. Most
of us realize the most recent financial asset cycle
(stocks, bonds, etc) is headed down. We keep bouncing
around trying to find the next asset class headed up.
Jim Rogers is already there.
I usually read three or four books at
a time, Hot Commodities was part of that list for
over a month. I would read a few chapters and then
set it down to think about it. I would pick it up days
latter and read another chapter. Each time I learned
more, each time I appreciated the depth of knowledge
that Rogers was willing to share.
When I finished Hot Commodities I wished
there was more - I'm reading it again and finding that
You will find speculation rules in Hot
Commodities and more. The learning
applied will help you become a successful speculator.
In short this is a good
investment book with a timely message.
Read it, reread it, think
discover successful speculation.
