You cannot find the sure-win strategy. But you can find the incapability of each approach. If you're logical person and increase in math, you will find this book quite interesting.

The synopsis starts with: "Could a maths expert outwit the stock market and make millions? John Allen Paulos, one of the world’s most renowned mathematicians, decided there was only one way to find out: to take a gamble on the investment game himself. But he soon discovered that even a maths guru can’t beat the market, and making the numbers add up was far harder (and more addictive) than he could ever have imagined."
