In this book, I have covered the fundamentals of Investing, Trading and speculating with case studies and real-life Stories to help explain the context in a relatable way. Most of the case studies, stories, and commentary are based out of my experience in the rough-and-tumble world of Financial Market.


The book is an attempt to demystify the psychology of investors, traders, and speculators dealing in the stock market. It is also an insight into how institutional investors operate in the financial markets.
