From the Publisher

How do we know where we are in the current stock market cycle? Are we in the midst of a new long term bull market or a market rally within an ongoing bear market?
The answers to the above questions are critical to forming an appropriate investment strategy to plan for the future. The difference between anticipating the end of a secular (or cyclical) bull market and reacting to the significant crash that follows will have a big impact on anyone's investment returns and retirement plans.
This book is concerned with cycles. A cycle is a sequence of events that repeat over time. The outcome won't necessarily be the same each time, but the underlying characteristics are the same. A good example is the seasonal cycle. Each year we have spring, summer, autumn and winter, and after winter we have spring again. But the weather can, and does, vary a great deal from one year to another. And so it is with the stock market.
Kerry Balenthiran has studied stock market data going back 100 years and discovered a regular 17.6 year stock market cycle consisting of increments of 2.2 years. He has also extrapolated the cycle forwards to provide investors with a market roadmap stretching out to 2053. He describes this in detail and outlines the changing character of the stock market through the different phases of the 17.6 year stock market cycle.
Whether you are an investment professional or private investor, this book provides a fascinating insight into the cyclical nature of the stock market and enables you to ensure that you have the right strategy for the prevailing stock market conditions.

Stocks To Keep A Nest Egg Growing

ALMOST NOTHING went the way it was supposed to in 2016. And yet, though many investors were wrong about the U.K.’s Brexit vote and the American presidential election, few ended up disappointed by their portfolios. Just before Thanksgiving, all four major U.S. stock market indexes closed at record highs—the first time that’s happened since 1999. If the year taught investors anything, it’s not to bet on predictions. As John Toohey, head of equities at USAA Investments, says of the unexpected outcomes, “You sort of question, ‘Is the market right, are the polls right, on anything?’ ” One predicti

Why Are Banks Doing So Well Following Trump's Win?

Despite anticipation that the so-called Trump rally in the markets would continue through the close of 2016, most analysts were waiting for January’s bank-earnings reports before declaring the “Trump bump” official. Now those reports are in, and it’s clear: Several major banks are enjoying large upticks in earnings in the wake of the election—at least for now. On Wednesday, Goldman Sachs reported $7.1 billion in earnings for 2016 while Citigroup reported earnings of $14.9 billion—each due in part to a double-digit increase in trading revenue and with particularly strong fourth-quarter results.

Will Investing In Wine, Art And Fancy Cars Help You Get Rich Fast? Here's The Truth.

You can't put a Camaro in your 401(k), but investing in rare cars can be more profitable than you might realize: Investment-grade autos increased their value by 457% in the last ten years, according to a report from Knight Frank. That's like multiplying your cash nearly five-fold in just a decade. Compare that with the boring old stock market, where 10-year returns are usually closer to 20% in a good decade. That big difference may explain why almost 10% of wealthy people's money is invested in alternative pleasure assets like art, wine and fancy cars. Now, it's certainly tempting to try to lo
