Investing online? This book might be your best investment all year. July 8 2010
By Biz Book Reader - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"TradeStream" is a very helpful resource for self-directed investors interested in learning about the latest tools and trends in the field of investment research. Miller lays out different categories of the latest services and suggests how each might be employed to generate investment ideas and/or evaluate the potential of various trades. He helpfully describes the theoretical backgrounds and, in many cases, provides some information assessing the effectiveness of the tools as well.

I didn't give the book five stars because for me, Miller's book would be more helpful if he provided a stronger and more explicit overall framework for how to use the tools, particularly with some sensitivity toward different investor objectives, risk profiles and levels of attentiveness (a framework exists in pieces throughout the book but could be better pulled together in an introductory or concluding chapter). In addition, his evaluation of the effectiveness of the different resources could be more consistently rigorous (e.g., adjusting for beta, comparing to standard indices) rather than merely citing different studies which all use their own standards. Lastly, the book's credibility would benefit from more objectivity (for example he repeatedly promotes Seeking Alpha, where he once worked and may still have an ownership interest) -- that may well be a matter of editing rather than actual judgement, but nonetheless it undermines the reading experience.

That said, this is a great place for new or confused online investors who want to know where to look for different kinds of help. If you are investing any amount of money online, your best return all year might come from buying "Tradestream."

A Complete Guide to the Intersection of Social Media with Asset Management Sept. 16 2010
By James Levy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have long been an avid follower of Zack Miller's groundbreaking Tradestreaming Blog, and was eager to get my hands on his book of the same title. I was not disappointed. Reading the book is like drinking from a firehose, as the flow of ideas and social media applications to the investment industry (both for the professional and private investor) is non stop. Reading this book made me aware of a many new and fascinating websites which are already helping me in my work as a professional investment advisor. Something BIG is happening at the intersection of Social Media and Investment Management, and this book demonstrates why Zack Miller is considered the world's leading authority in this new area.

I would recommend this book very highly both to investment professionals who want to become aware of the cutting edge of our industry, as well as to private investors who seek to take control of their own investment decisions with confidence, knowing that the Tradestreaming methods described in this book can offer them best investment guidance available in the world today, regardless of the size of their portfolio and without abusive fees.

Any reader of this book should have the book in one hand, and an internet access in the other, as the author mentions so many interesting and intriguing websites with such a convincing eagerness to share with the reader that it is impossible to resist the urge to enter these websites and explore for yourself.

This is a book that many investment professionals wish that they had written. It is a seminal work which will no doubt be recognized as such in the coming years, and indeed by be ¨ahead of is time¨. I encourage investors to read this book, as it pays an investment return to the reader many times that of its purchase price.

A One-Stop Guide To The Internet For Investors And Traders July 30 2010
By CLIFF WACHTEL - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Finally, here's a one-stop guide to the Internet for investors and traders.
This is one of the few new investment books that any serious investor or marketer of financial services truly, truly must read, likely to become the definitive guide to using financial social media to improve investment performance.
All serious investors or trader realize that they need guidance, and that there is a lot of great advice on the internet, much of it for little or no cost.
Few would dispute that they'd be more profitable following the moves of proven experts.
The trick is to sift through the vast online universe to locate the best sources.
The idea is simple enough, but it took someone with deep expertise in online media, financial planning, and fund management to distill the best the Internet has to offer.
The book provides an overview of how changes in the internet, financial research, social media and online content have given us unprecedented access to some the best investment advice. It then examines 8 different strategies for using online investing resources and provides practical advice for how to implement these 8 approaches, which are:
Expert Bloggers: How to access the best blogs for new ideas
Imitate Proven Stars: How to build a portfolio made of the top picks of the your chosen gurus.
Join Expert Communities: How to locate and use online communities to identify and monitor professional or amateur experts.
* Online Resources For Monitoring Crowd Sentiment.
* Screening 2.0: How to create screens suing the same parameters as the pros.
* Tracking Insider Moves
* Tracking Rumors
* Non-Financial Online Resources

The summary chapter's look at how the Internet is changing the financial services industry is a must read for those interested or working in the field.
As an analyst who covers forex, commodities and bonds in addition to equities at [...], only wish that there wasn't such a heavy concentration on resources for the equities markets, though the focus is understandable given that stocks have a much more established online presence.
However, the ecosystem of online resources for these other markets is growing.
Can we look forward to a follow up volume covering these markets?

highly recommended for investors in the web 2.0 era July 19 2010
By jsuss - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book did quite a good job explaining how to take advantage of new Internet tools (like social media network, Twitter) in identifying winning investments. Miller outlines 8 strategies that use publicly available information disseminated on the Web. These strategies, most backed by recent academic research, all provide a way for investors to become more accurate in their investing. Most include mimicking other profitable investors (hedge fund managers, corporate insiders, and even future Warren Buffetts). Highly recommended.
