Introductions (From Author):

Buy low, sell high! That’s the shortcut to a fortune , right? Wrong! It is just one of many loss-causing cliches that the crowd chants as they lose money year after year.

There are many other do’s on Wall Street that are really don’ts, such as the necessity of reading the financial pages and watching the evening TV business report so you are in touch with important developments in the economy and its leading industries. Or the need to get advice from a so-called Wall Street wunderkind who wears a three- piece suit and talks to other wunderkinds.

These aren’t the answers and they won’t put profits in your pockets. It’s unfortunate that so many investors embrace these ideas as the key to financial well-being.

Buy low, sell high is a cliche, not a blueprint for action. It blinds investors to the professionals’ approach of buying high and selling higher, which I’ll teach you to do consistently.

Being in touch with all the financial and economic news won’t put your investments in the plus column either. In a world of computers and instant communications, the financial markets respond to the latest news long before you read or hear about it in the press.

In addition, the market sells on future rather than current earnings. In order to be successful you have to learn to use the many clues the market action provides. Stan Weinstein’s Secrets For Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets will show you how to uncover those clues and turn them into profits.

Finally, relying on the advice of Wall Street wunderkinds-the brokers and analysts-won’t get you very far. The overwhelming evidence is that their advice is inferior to the advice you will get from a set of darts thrown at a stock page (and believe me, a set of darts is far less expensive).

Too many of these people spend their time talking with other brokers and analysts. They go to luncheons where executives of the Fortune 500 companies treat them to chicken Kiev and information about current company performance.

You don’t have to go to more than a few of these functions to realize that both the chicken and the information being served have been on the warming tables for a long time.

The real market professionals, the specialists on the floors of the exchanges, don’t adhere to any of these misguided approaches. They base their decisions on market actions, not the news. And while others follow the cliches into the loss column, the real market pros are making plenty of money.

Mr. and Mrs. Average Investor declare that they are unlucky in the stock market, but this is nonsense. It isn’t a matter of luck at all. They are playing the game by the wrong set of rules and until they learn what the winning rules are, they will continue to have poor results. What they need in order to get on the winning road is a consistent method of properly timing the market and controlling their two market enemies: greed and fear.

That’s what Stan Weinstein’s Secrets For Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets is all about-winning! After having made plenty of mistakes, I’ve learned how to decipher the very obvious clues that the market gives us and then tactically respond to a given situation. I’m going to teach you a new set of stock market rules that will make the market much less stressful and far more profitable for you.

These rules won’t have you poring over balance sheets or listening to some company spokesman drone on about his firm’s progress toward higher returns on shareholders’ equity. These rules will require that you do two things: control your own greed and fear, and find and decipher the obvious clues that the market tosses your way.

That’s what I’ll teach you in Stan Weinstein’s Secrets For Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets, and what you’ll learn will make you a winning investor. Best of all, once you get the hang of it, you only have to spend about an hour every week implementing this winning approach.
