Finally, a finance dictionary compiled with the individual investor in mind. Wall Street Lingo does more than define the terms your stockbroker, the Wall Street Journal and CNBC pitch at you it explains them in a way that traditional dictionaries cant. Where other dictionaries start at A and end at Z, Wall Street Lingo is organized in chapters, by subject. It begins where you begin with a topic that has piqued your curiosity and ends only when your curiosity has been satisfied.
