Timing the Market: How To Profit in the Stock Market Using the Yield Curve, Technical Analysis, and Cultural Indicators 

Timing the Market is for investors who want to increase their returns and reduce their stress while making profits in the stock market. The best way to profit in the stock market is to identify its absolute tops and bottoms and then have the courage to trade them. Timing the Market shows you how to come very close to accomplishing that goal.


Private investors with very little time to devote to their portfolios will find that this guide simplifies their lives. Active traders with more time to devote to their investments can apply leverage to the concepts in this book. Professional investors can use the principles in the following pages to cut through their information overload and identify the most important issues.

Timing the Market addresses all investors’ needs by starting with the broadest, most critical issues and systematically working down to individual security selection.

If you do not have a large computer filled with scrubbed data and an experienced staff of Ph.D.’s, or if you do but would like to speak intelligently in their absence, you will depend on this book. Many of the graphs in Timing the Market display two centuries of economic, social, and stock market data, some of which is reprinted in the appendixes together with web sites for the source material.

This compilation of Wall Street practices has never been written before. Professional money managers and street-smart investors around the world pass this intelligence along an underground network of friends, families, and clients. Their insights are too valuable to be handed down like tribal war stories around a campfire; someone had to write them down in an organized manner with illustrations and anecdotes.
