Hedge Funds for Dummies (Paperback)
Hedge your stock market bets with funds that can deliver returns in down markets
Hedge Funds For Dummies is your introduction to the popular investing strategy that can help you gain positive returns, no matter what direction the market takes.

We also give you tips on finding a broker that is right for you and the investment you wish to make. Let Dummies be your investment advisor as you set up a strategy that will deliver results.
