As traditional full service stockbroking and investment management gradually give way to a new breed of DIY stockmarket investor, there is a growing demand for knowledge, techniques and products. Many of the products are now being marketed as on-line services. As regulations regarding access to real-time financial information are slowly relaxed, so the demand for these products is growing. This book focuses on how the ability to access information from on-line sources can be used by ordinary investors to level the investment playing field. If used properly, it can allow them to make decisions on the basis of information which approaches the same quality and timeliness as that used by professional investors.
