The Message of the Markets

by Ron Insana

Review by Richard Sheppard


CNN commentator Ron Insana's book is a summary treatment of how to read market movements which might help you predict money-making opportunities. It offers insights such as how the price of utilities sticks signal the direction of future interest rates.

Taken in this light, this book is useful for a novice investor who might like to hold a knowledgeable conversation with someone their broker or other money-manager.

And it would be a fair place to start for those who would eventually want to move on to fathoming the incredibly sophisticated predictive models which underlie nearly all of big-money investing today.
