Stock Market Seasonals provides a never-before-seen definitive guide that illustrates how to utilize a combination of four basic seasonal tendencies in order to maximize returns.Ultimately, this book is about market timing. Market timing is another topic that elicits a great deal of skepticism among investors.
The primary request that must be made of you, the reader, is that you consider the information contained in this book with an open mind. There is something in human nature that tends to cause people to be skeptical of anything that involves their money. Even more than that, there is also something in human nature that makes people skeptical of things that they do not understand or that cannot be explained logically. The fact of the matter is that the majority of the trends, methods, cycles, and ideas contained in this book will likely fall into this category—hence the need for an open mind.
Please remember that no one is going to try to convince you to adopt anything from this book and use it to the exclusion of all other methods. Probably the best way to get the most out of the material in this book is to approach it with the idea of trying to find ways to enhance and improve whatever investment methods you are presently using or are considering. There are two things to keep in mind here:
1. If your idea of market timing is picking tops and bottoms with uncanny accuracy, then you are right to be skeptical, because this simply does not happen. Regardless of the many claims to the contrary, no one always picks the tops and bottoms.
2. However, if your idea of market timing is trying to identify periods when the probabilities suggest that the stock market is more likely to advance than not, then you may eventually find the material in this book to be extremely useful.
