In today's information-hungry investment environment, real-time financial news is everywhere. But what are the experts saying? And what does it mean to investors? As investors increasingly assert control over their own portfolios, Decoding Wall Street shows them how to decipher bulletins, reports, and Wall Street lingo, as they separate the fact from the fiction to maximize personal investment results.

Straightforward and reader-friendly, this practical, hands-on reference is packed with the tools and information investors need in order to understand what they hear and read. Accessible enough to be understood by beginners, yet beneficial to investors of every level, it provides:
-- Effective strategies for on-line investing
-- Descriptions of the markets (including the NYSE and Nasdaq) and how they work
-- Who the players are -- brokerage firms, banks, mutual funds -- and what they do
-- Explanations of key terms and concepts -- IPOs, DRIPs, munis, and more
