My Finance Times is back and roaring!

The Blog is back!
As many may have noticed, My Finance Times has been shifted from a Wordpress.com to Blogger.com. I'm thankful to have gotten back to the blog after a long hiatus!

Most of this time, I was preoccupied with everyday studies, but in the latter part, I've striven to increased my knowledge base, and continuously doing so even right now. I had started a Book on 'Options,Futures and Other Derivatives' by John Hull to get to know more about all the financial instruments which the bigwigs on Wall Street and everywhere else tweak to hedge, arbitrage and make handsome profits. The book is not for beginners, and I being a beginner have, thus, moved to McMillan on Options which has proved much easier to read and understand.

As GM Trevelyan has rightly said "Education has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading," I would request all of You to suggest reading material for me and other readers as I begin on a rather adventurous route to being a derivatives and options expert.

Just as a mind once stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimensions (so Oliver Wendell said), I'd  embark on this journey of financial education with all gusto and keep posting educational and intriguing articles here.

Wish me luck!

  1. An excellent piece, good to see your posts back. They were quite informative and was always wondering when would you return. Regarding derivatives, the more you know the less it is but the books you have mentioned, both are qood. Also visit some option sites on the net if you wish to learn more.
