Description

Everything you need to know for long-term stock-market success-with critical new information about indexing, ETFs, and 401(k)s

From one of today's most respected authorities on stock investing, Winning the Loser's Game explains how you can avoid common traps and succeed in today's volatile markets. Ellis presents the cold, hard facts about important changes in the market over the past 50 years, why succeeding with active investing has become more difficult, and how you can outperform markets for steady, long-term gain. With lower rates of return now and over the next several years, you need to rethink you overall approach to investing-and Ellis shows how in this heavily updated edition.
