Bill Cara’s STOCK MARKET LITERACY should be in every business library. This is “everyman’s” portable master of capital markets in one oversized volume. Study, learn, discuss, and debate. They don’t teach this in MBA schools. There is nothing else like it!

Nobody graduates with a Stock Market PhD. Capital markets are global and complex, moving in ways no novice can comprehend. Bill brings a vast multi-decade expertise that every level of participant can refer to for guidance.

A Smooth Sea Never Made a Skilled Sailor. And would a sailor ever leave port without a compass? Stock Market Literacy is a must-read if you are serious about learning to navigate on your own! It is a fantastic bite-sized format for revisiting your lifelong journey in the rough seas that are the markets.

I’ve learned from Bill that the market is a marathon, and it takes a specific set of skills to run that marathon.

Trader Wizard is a must-read for any investor on the stock market. I found the book informative and helpful, and Mr. Cara generously shares his techniques and sources. He is that rare combination of thinker and doer, and I cannot recommend his books too highly. The cost is the best investment you will make.


Bill Cara has produced an important book on modern financial markets. He has achieved this despite (a) the difficulty of going from blog to book, (b) the difficulty of packing a lifetime of knowledge into hundreds of pages, and (c) the difficulty in deciding on the knowledge and experience of the targeted reader.


Bill's books represent the foundational knowledge behind his methodologies. It synthesizes a systematic market/stock analysis approach utilizing different market disciplines and their respective tools. He also provides resources for other information he considers important to investing/trading skills.


When I bought the Trader Wizard book, I was hopeful I could understand and use a good part of it. Actually, I have understood most of it. The level of information is comprehensive yet explained in terms I can understand. It will be an important book for me for some time to come.
