Financial Market Analysis (Revised)

By David Blake, Blake
The eagerly awaited second edition of this highly successful book has been greatly expanded from 400 to over 700 pages and contains new material on value at risk, speculative bubbles, volatility effects in financial markets, chaos and neural networks. Financial Market Analysis deals with the composition of financial markets and the analysis and valuation of traded securities. It describes the use of securities both in constructing and managing portfolios and in contributing to portfolio performance. Particular attention is paid to new types of investment product, different portfolio management strategies, speculation, arbitrage and risk management strategies and to financial market failure. Financial Market Analysis is an essential text for all finance-related degree courses at undergraduate, postgraduate, and MBA level. It also provides a useful source of reference for financial institutions and professionals in the financial markets.
