Welcome to JamesCox.com.au

original james cox finance blog background

This website will share a range of financial information centering mainly around corporate finance, investing, share trading, the stock market, growing companies and business, Economics, Law, Random relevant news events, and generally making money (probably some poker thrown in).

I am writing this blog for three main reasons. Since finishing my law degree, I find myself reading many books on these subjects and so far i am finding them particularly interesting.

In addition to this, financial topics are traditionally very hard to ‘get into’ or learn about and there seems to be a certain and somewhat intentional cloud of secrecy around their understanding. The number of times I have searched “learn share market” or “what is an option?” into Google and arrived at a page telling me to go to seminar or pay for an ebook (that is likely to tell me to go to a seminar) has led me to believe someone should be providing this information for free.

Finally, understanding these things is interesting even on the face of it but can obviously allow you to have a much greater chance of success in a variety of important facets of life no matter what you do and who you are. You don’t have to be a capitalist or investment banker to enjoy finance and regardless of your political and moral inclinations, understanding these topics are likely to increase your ability to live in what is obviously a capitalist society.

I am not a finance expert, I have a sound business sense in development and a legal background, but i am by no means going to write like so many money magazines or guides where you need a cipher to understand the majority of an article. Ideally, this blog will be simple, straight to the point and introductory to a wide range of financial topics.

This blog will hopefully demystify some of the concepts that seem so foreign to most people and provide a less than 400 page insight into the financial world from the perspective of an financial novice as I begin to truly understand alot of the concepts myself.

I look forward to writing this blog and i hope someone out there will enjoy reading it.

If you enjoy the blog, please become a fan and get in touch of on James Cox finance blog facebook group.

  1. Hey James great blog, it would be great if you could mention what books you have been read and recommend, I trade the market part time/ poker part time as well.. there is so much info out there its good to have what books you found are the best and I think it could save people a lot of time. If you have time it would be interesting if you were to explain a practical examples of content covered in your articles, I’m looking for to your tax articles as well.


  2. There is a great deal of free information out there mostly on the internet.
    I have little formal education and have learnt by trial and error.
    COM SEC and the ASX sight have plenty of info and I find that Peter Switzers gives out fantastic information on corporate news via internet TV, and Adam Kohler (Business Sunday)has his own sight on the web called Business Spectator.I personally trade through COM SEC.
    There are also plenty of vultures out there.
    Rodger Montgomery also talks a lot of sense regarding intrinsic value of companys.
    Regards Graham
