Publisher's Summary

It's back - and this time it's even more revealing. In this completely updated and expanded edition, top trader Robbie Burns gives you the lowdown on the strategies you need to make money from the stock market without having to sit at a screen all day. Robbie quit the rat race in 2001, and believes you can do it too.The original Naked Trader flew off the shelves as the glowing reviews from readers mounted up. This new edition contains loads of new stuff: more essential tips, more key facts, more ideas, more insights, more real-life tales and an awful lot more toast. Robbie, aka the Naked Trader, is your expert and highly entertaining guide to the often baffling world of the stock market. In between cups of tea, rounds of toast and the occasional 'cuddle' with Mrs Naked Trader, he describes the straightforward techniques that have enabled him to succeed in the markets, escape the rat race and make a lot of money.
This audiobook tells you all you need to know. If you're a complete beginner you can start here or if you're currently trading but want to learn some new ideas - get listening now!
Robbie reveals his trading secrets gathered from 10 years of money making. From how to find good shares in the first place, ensuring you don't buy a complete stinker, to using spread betting to enhance gains and how to make big returns quickly from smaller companies. There's also his simple "traffic lights" system, which makes reading company reports a doddle, and real traders reveal their horror stories and winning tips!
This time, Robbie reveals his top 10 secret winning strategies - 10 sure-fire ways to ensure only the best shares get bought. Plus, how to get the confidence to hold onto winning shares and get rid of losers, and how to buy and sell at the right time.

Critic Reviews

"The book covers an impressive amount of ground, from the basics of setting up as a trader, to the meat of strategies and psychology, and plenty of honest examples of where things have gone wrong. As an introduction to the world of shares, The Naked Trader scores highly." ( Investors Chronicle)

Skip It...

What did you like best about The Naked Trader? What did you like least?

I didn't like anything about this book. I Hated It..

Would you ever listen to anything by Robbie Burns again?

Never Again.

How could the performance have been better?

Focus more on the subject, less on tea and toast, and stop Trying to be witty.

Who do you think would benefit most from listening to The Naked Trader?

Perhaps British folks who can tolerate his humor.

Any additional comments?

A very British book written by a very British Author. Perhaps the Brits can appreciate this book but this American could have done better buying something else. Full of British colloquialisms. There does appear to be some useful information, but not at all worth what I paid for it.

What a gem!

I felt I was taking a bit of a chance on this one (I'm not English and I don't trade on the FTSE), but what a great listen this turned out to be. The material in this book is so practical (some would say obvious but I don't agree). There are no hidden catches and he definitely paints the picture warts and all. It is filled with practical advice and 'real' examples of traps and pitfalls... all the time compelling me to trade smart. Thanks Robbie, you're a POM, but nice work!

There's a lot to learn...

As someone of average intelligence, who has worked in finance my whole life, I didn't realise just how little I knew about the world of trading. There is an awful lot to learn and, I'll be completely honest, this book has put me off a bit.

I guess I thought I could open an online account, deposit some money and 'play'. Maybe I'd win some and those gains would cover the losses. Whatever, it would be great fun!


There are so many choices to make even before you start trading that the 'fun' or 'exciting' element I was hoping for seems a long was away. The starting costs are inhibitive and really seem to stack the odds on making no money at all.

Costs to set-up, costs to deposit, costs to buy, costs to sell, costs to transfer, costs to withdraw...until I invest in a winner I'm going to be out of pocket for quite some time.

Now that's not to say I didn't enjoy the book or the style of delivery, quite the opposite. The Story element at the very beginning brought a big smile to my face. The passion and knowledge of the text is plain to see and I thought the book was read rather well indeed. I think the problem is that I was hoping for a simple introduction to the world of trading and it's going to be a lot more complicated than I first thought.

I would still recommend this book, however.

a must read for all investors

as someone interested in investing, this book made it easy to understand what you should be looking for in companies before investing in them. it de-complicated all that complicated talk about shares and company fundamentals, and gave simple and easy to follow check lists so you can research and make informed decisions about potential investments.

all in all an excelent and must read for novice investers, and i imagine even for those with more experience.
