About Trading Thalesians

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 14.00.09If your primary trading objective is to make money quickly, it’s easy to be fooled into making decisions that will increase the likelihood of losing. In Trading Thalesians, Saeed Amen offers a new alternative: achieving successful trading as a byproduct of good trading.

Amen looks to the ancient world to help us better understand modern money markets, demonstrating what ancient philosophers can teach us about trading markets today, and showing you how to maximise your returns.

Relating ancient concepts such as water and risk, diversified knowledge and historical bias to the modern world, Amen demonstrates that by focusing on goals that go beyond making money, lateral thinking and targeting risk adjusted returns, traders will make more money in the long run.

What can you learn about modern money markets from the ancient world?
