(From The Jacket) – While predicting what direction the stock market will take at any given moment is difficult, if not impossible, the market does exhibit well-defined and predictable cyclical patterns. For example, history shows that the best six-month period for stocks is November through April and that by moving into stocks in October-November and out in April-May you can significantly reduce risk while increasing profits. What other important lessons does history have to teach about the market? What are the key cycles and patterns you should know about in order to optimize your investment strategies? Find out in “The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles”.
Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, the pre-eminent authority on market cycles and seasonal patterns, this book draws upon the Hirsch Organization’s five decades of meticulous historical research and market analysis to help you understand market cycles and what drives them.
