To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Update: I was able to update to the high-res version of the Kindle ebook so I can see the charts and slack chat now. / Alex is a storyteller, and this is an excellent read even for someone who doesn't know the ins and outs of investing. (Or even the very far outs). There's some humor in the writing, balancing the seriousness of the details and the heaviness of the times. It's an accomplishment that reflects the author's skill on a number of levels. If the first book was about a sword and the second about a shield, I can't help but wonder what the third book will be.
Author graciously shares trading strategies at his hedge fund firm (HonTe Invesments) during the start of the COVID pandemic. Internal chats, tables and graphs used to justify trading decisions are included, both for successful trades as well as some not-so-successful ones. Focus is on currencies, but several ideas can be applied to other investments.
The first version of the Kindle book contained very low resolution images. Many arguments are difficult to follow without readable images. Fortunately, it was updated around 2/10/22 with high resolution images. https://twitter.com/agurevich23/status/1491843238696656896?s=20&t=4dBYURIm4Qol484cOyMZlg
If your Kindle book still shows low resolution images, this is the procedure suggested by Amazon customer service: 1. Confirm "Whispersync for Books" is enabled on "Settings" of your Kindle app or device. 2. Confirm "Automatic Book Updates" is enabled on "Preferences" at Amazon "Manage Your Content and Devices" (MYCD) https://amazon.com/mycd 3. If the book was previously downloaded to your Kindle app or device, remove it, sync the device and download it again.
Alex Gurevich details the market and global events of March, 2020 in a spectacular fashion. I had a wonderful time being a passenger in his version of the unprecedented market and social events. It was thrilling to be taken back in time to those crazy (yet exhilarating) market dislocations It was interesting to get insight on how a seasoned pro like Alex navigates vicious volatility while maintaining sanity and calm. Bravo!
Alex does a nice job bringing us into the dynamic challenges of March 2020. The slack chats are awesome and easy to enlarge on Kindle for iPad. I wish he gave a little more background on the instruments they were trading. I've traded ~1/2 of them, but didn't completely understand the others or their correlations. Still a great read.
