Book Description

In 2007, the Dow Jones index hit an all-time high of 14,164, but in 2012 it started under 12,000. Measured in real, inflation-adjusted terms, it was 20% down from its 2000 level.Investors are slowly waking up to the fact that this is a long-term bear market that could last a decade or more.

If you aren’t careful, that could decimate your wealth – but if you get it right, you could profit spectacularly.

In this ground-breaking essay, investment expert John Carlucci explains how you can make just as much money when prices are falling as when they are rising – but you have to invest in a completely different way.

Written in clear accessible language, it is the one book no serious investor can afford to be without.

It will help you immediately understand -

- How the stock market changed in 2000 making the "Buy and Hold" strategy not just obsolete but deadly for investors.

- The "big picture" of the market and economy, explaining why we are shortly headed for a collapse worse than 2008 - 2009 that will last for at least another decade.

- Why stock brokers, mutual funds and financial advisors deliberately let their clients get wiped out in the crash of 2008 - 2009.

- The simple tactic your broker "forgot" to tell you about that will bullet-proof your investment account against any market down turn.

- An amazingly effective stock market indicator that accurately predicts when to exit the market before a down turn and when to re-enter for maximum profit.

- A detailed plan for how to take advantage of a trading opportunity that could net you 400% profit or more in the next two years.

- Gold vs. silver. Which is better for investors?

“Ashes to Riches” will give you an in-depth understanding of our current volatile financial world. You will see our new economic landscape through a different set of eyes and be empowered to take full advantage of it

5.0 out of 5 stars Insider Advice January 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book gives you great, insider investment advice. It does not just repeat the stale old cliches you get in the money sections of the newspapers - it tells you what you should buy, and when, and most importantly when you should sell as well. Although conscious of the perilous state of things, the author gives hope that enterprise and good judgement can and will be rewarded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Punchy and Well-Argued January 31, 2012
By Claire
Format:Kindle Edition
Ashes to Riches is a punchy, well-argued book which will resonate with readers- and investors - both sides of the Atlantic. The author's optimism is refreshing and qualified. Although it is difficult to make money out there at the moment, it is far from impossible. Book provides over arching arguments for things, but also Ashes to Riches is a resource for simple, bite-size tips and pieces of information to guide would-be investors. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling May 20, 2012
By GreyFox
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know if this advice is good or not but it is different from most and his argument is very compelling. Compelling enough that I will be spending a couple of days backtesting it.

Unfortunately he loses significant credibility with me because his web site he touts for the "latest news, analysis, and chart updates" - [...] - does not exist.

By the way, I knew better but I bought the Kindel version anyway. Never but a Kindel version for any book that is going to have charts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing but risky August 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not a book for those who like to play things safe. Carlucci seems to have developed some pretty solid analytics. I disagree with him about stopping all trading when the market is down. Like Warren Buffet, I like to buy when the market is down. But honestly, I'm a buy-and-hold, dollar-cost averaging kind of girl, so Carlucci's market-timing strategies are a little too far outside my comfort zone.

Nevertheless, I admire the chutzpah of anyone with the nerve to follow through on this advice. His description of end-of-day trading is thought-provoking -- and explains that bounce we so often see in the charts after 3:30 p.m. You can tell the traders get active then. I didn't realize just how much thought went into those trades.

I read this book mainly for its perspective on how the economy is likely to perform over the next decade, and Carlucci offers some good insights there. Lots to think about, and some advice on commodities trading that might be worth pursuing if you have a high tolerance for risk.
