In this excerpt from his acclaimed book Taming The Lion, highly successful trader, investor and former hedge fund manager, Richard Farleigh, reveals some of the secret investment strategies that he developed to succeed in the markets: "An investor needs to spot genuine opportunities in order to make good consistent returns. A few market professionals can rely on the advantages of superior information, high quality analysis or client orders to help them predict future price moves. But for various reasons these advantages are dwindling, and anyway the ordinary investor needs something more accessible. Fortunately there are opportunities offered by market behaviour which are long lasting and can be spotted without enormous research or inside information - When these are pursued with sensible risk management the results can be stunning." Praise for Farleigh's acclaimed book, Taming the Lion: "Anyone who was able to retire at the age of 34, move to Monte Carlo and become a private investor must have made some smart investment decisions. Richard Farleigh did just that and he's sharing his secrets in this book." Money Magazine "Taming the Lion is a book about profiting from big themes. From humble beginnings in Australia, Farleigh made a fortune following powerful trends, the most effective and least stressful route to investment success. He knows how to write too." Telegraph "Overall I feel there is so much information in this book, it is probably one I will keep re-reading as I make investment decisions. I especially like the way it has reminded me that there are other asset classes to invest in other than shares and property and yet the same strategies are applicable." Investors Voice
