Book Review: Hot Commodities

Jim Rodgers is a best-selling trading author, some of his other trading publications include Adventure Capitalist and Investment Biker. Jim Rodgers is well known for his commodity trading and is considered one of the world's best investors. Rodgers is the chairman of Rodgers Holdings and Beeland Interests Inc. He is co-founder of the Quantum Fund (a group of privately owned hedge funds based in Curacao and the Cayman Islands) along with George Soros.
Hot Commodities is one of Jim Rodgers' best-selling trading books, below is my review...

Jim Rodgers is Inspiring

The personal insights and stories in the book are much more rewarding than the technical content. Reading how Jim Rodgers was able to retire in his late 30's and his success in general made this trading book a good read for me. The development of his trading career is fun and fascinating, I particularly enjoyed his approach to commodity trading, he seems very calm and quite playful with his words.

It's well-written

Rodgers makes a great author. I liked his style of writing, the content was easy to understand and the whole book was fairly light-hearted.

It's about Commodities

If you need a rest from stock trading or Forex trading books, Hot Commodities may provide the needed break.


My review for this book is brief, I actually do not know what else to say! Jim's trading career is inspiring, Hot Commodities details his success and shares some valuable insights. Due to Jim's popularity and the amount of attention this book gets, I was expecting something better. As with most trading books, it is worth reading but it is unlikely to provide many 'light bulb' moments or advance your ability to trade, however Hot Commodities has given me greater vision to what I can achieve and a sense of greater respect for the markets and the potential returns they offer.

The Complete Investment Banking Course - Trading Course Review

The Complete Investment Banking Course is not a trading course. It does not offer insights into technical analysis, money management, trading strategies or provide other typical trading course content - I understand this. The reason why I wanted to take and review this course is that many financial traders have an active interest in investment banking and their role within equity, debt and other financial markets.
