      The Fundamentals of Pricing

      Pricing Strategies to increase Profitability

      The second edition of Italy’s first and most used guide on how to take full advantage of pricing strategies. A handbook on how to improve company profitability and seize new growth opportunities.
      Pricing is the most impactful factor on company profitability. However, most companies do not take full advantage of the potential of pricing and rely instead on preset formulas; they struggle to go beyond basic profit margins or to do something more than simply keep up with the competition. Others still, they just act on instinct. This often leads to dramatic dips in profits. In this practical, straightforward guide readers will find everything they need to know about pricing – namely what techniques and what tools to use, what the different pricing strategies are, and how to make the best of the potential of pricing. This handbook is dedicated to professionals and companies selling goods or services that are willing to maximise their approach to pricing.

      Profitable Trading

      Operational Strategies on Forex, Stocks and Future

      This book describes many strategies that can be used on a daily basis to operate on the different financial markets (Forex, stocks, Futures).

      The book shows some operating setups obtained by putting together graph analysis (for example, the Heiken Ashi technique) with the signals provided by the various technical oscillators (Bollinger Bands, Stochastic Oscillator) and has plenty of examples of graphs for fairly easily learning about operating strategies and to be able to assess their effectiveness.

      The final chapter is highly interesting, where some transactions made with real money are analysed in detail: this gives readers a chance to understand the principles that govern the decisions taken by the author and to get into his mindset for his operations.
