The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets: How to Keep Your Portfolio Up When the Market is Down
The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets reveals how you should protect your assets and invest your money when the American economy is experiencing perilous economic downturns and wealth building is happening elsewhere. Filled with insightful commentary, inventive metaphors, and prescriptive advice, this book shows you how to make money under adverse market conditions by using a conservative, nontraditional investment strategy.
The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets is a book for stock investors; its focus is on preserving and enhancing invested wealth at a time when a collapsing American economy threatens to destroy it. The current economic backdrop requires a fresh approach to investing, and before getting too deeply into the discussion, I want to say a word about what I mean by the terms bull and bear markets.
Except in hindsight, nobody knows when bull, bear, or sideways markets begin and end, and there is no universal agreement on the magnitude or duration of the market moves that define them. But precise definitions are not terribly important as long as you know bull means up, bear means down, and sideways means flat, and you have the relative knowledge to distinguish market trends from reverse market movements and fluctuations that are merely short – term in nature.
Unless otherwise specified, bull , bear , and sideways refer in this book to the stock market, but the terms are commonly applied to markets in other asset classes and in stock market sectors, such as commodities; subsectors, such as gold; or stock classifications, such as small capitalization and large capitalization. Price movements are tracked by indexes and averages that measure changes using various weighting methodologies.
