Diary of an Internet Trader Summary

Diary of an Internet Trader: Practical insights in investment wisdom by Alpesh Patel

The number of online trading accounts in Europe alone is expected to grow from 4.4 million at the end of 2000 to a staggering 16.8 million by the end of the 2003.

Until recently the world of online trading was ruled by professional men over the age of 30. Today the picture is quite different, with online trading being taken up by homemakers, retirees and teenagers of both sexes, as well as the professional vanguard.

Internet trading has hit the mainstream and it's time to take advantage.

Diary of an Internet Trader evolves the hugely successful column published in the Financial Times, now fully updated and supplemented. A wealth of new websites, screen shots, and additional reference materials have been incorporated, and are packaged within a highly accessible question and answer format.

As well as following the clear but opinionated style that makes the columns essential reading, it provides the most thoughtful insights into Internet trading from the authority on the subject, giving you a glimpse into the life of a successful private investor and the strategies to replicate his phenomenal achievement.
