The Internet has leveled the financial playing field. In deleteyourbroker.com, popular financial columnist Christopher Byron shows novice and experienced investors alike how to navigate the wealth of financial information now available and zero in on the most important, the most useful, and the most reliable sites. With his trademark wit, irreverence, and a dash of healthy skepticism, he directs readers to valuable resources on the Internet -- from programs that will evaluate the asset allocation in your portfolio to sites that provide detailed information about a stock's past performance, or those that offer vital financial news, such as announcements of upcoming stock splits. deleteyourbroker.com also provides a solid primer on the fundamentals of investing, from the principles of asset allocation to how to analyze a stock and read a balance sheet and other financial documents. It does all this using Internet resources that you can access free or for a nominal charge.
With the no-holds-barred approach for which he is known, Byron cuts through the hype surrounding such practices as day-trading, "Bulletin Board" stocks, online IPOs, and other get-rich-quick schemes, showing readers how to tell the difference between valuable information and misleading smoke screens. He illustrates his lessons with plenty of anecdotes from the world of business -- and spares no one.
Packed with practical tips and enlivened by Byron's take-no-prisoners analysis, deleteyourbroker.com is the essential guide for anyone thinking of investing online.
