Achieve positive returns on your investments, in any market

With Managing Your Investment Portfolio FD you can build and manage a portfolio of investments that’s flexible enough to provide positive returns, no matter what the market is doing. Inside you’ll find a wealth of strategies and techniques to help you take your investments to the next level. Lean to track and predict volatility; hedge your exposure by going long and short; use strategies like arbitrage, relative value and pairs trading; and dip into distressed assets, options, derivatives, spread betting and much more.

Techniques and strategies covered include:

  • Tracking and predicting volatility, and making short-term gains on very volatile markets
  • Hedging exposure and going long and short
  • Arbitrage (taking advantage of price differences between markets)
  • Pairs trading
  • Relative value strategies
  • Distressed assets (things written off by the mainstream that may have long-term value)
  • Earnings surprises (looking for companies delivering better earnings than predicted by analysts)
  • Options and derivatives
  • Macro trading (looking at key indicators for economic cycles)


David Stevenson is a columnist for the Financial Times where he writes the Adventurous Investor section. He is also a columnist for Investors Chronicle and author of Investing in Shares For Dummies, UK edition.
