Once upon a time, Wall Street lived off nice little homilies like "buy low and sell high" and "don′t put all your eggs in one basket." But investors can no longer depend on such well–worn proverbs.
Today, the winners on Wall Street employ a body of theory that transforms logic, psychology, and statistical sophistication into a powerful package of systematic principles for successful investing. This body of theory is the investor′s survival kit in a financial world flooded with information, novel strategies, and dazzling financial instruments.
