Editorial Reviews

"Teall's Financial Trading and Investing presents clear and up-to-date coverage of trading and market microstructure. Arbitrage and hedging examples in currency, forwards, fixed income and options markets are well developed, with particular attention devoted to implementing transactions."--Ahmet K. Karagozoglu, Hofstra University "I enjoyed reading the material in Financial Trading and Investing. Dr. Teall's coverage of the content in this text is very thorough, and it fills a niche in academic and professional literature on trading and market microstructure."--Travis Jones, Florida Gulf Coast University "The presentation is well supported not only by the extensive use of professional literature but also by examples in each chapter. The end-of-chapter questions enhance learning by enabling students to apply concepts in meaningful ways. They make the material more 'real world' for advanced undergraduates or graduate students." --Kevin Klein, Illinois College
