From the Inside Flap
In The Bull Inside the Bear, investment manager and former Federal Reserve economist Robert Stein believes the economy is entering uncharted waters and explains why investors need to actively manage their portfolios to take advantage of new opportunities and avoid risky sectors to limit losses. The key will be to stay nimble and be ready to rebalance your position as economic conditions change, while utilizing innovative products such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to diversify your portfolio.
Written in a straightforward and accessible style, this reliable resource opens with a detailed discussion of the economic lessons we can learn from recent decades. Stein looks at everything from gold in the 1970s through the tech bubble of the 1990s to the credit crisis of the present decade, and addresses the need to pay close attention to the warning signs of changing times. After becoming aware of the broader economic landscape, you'll discover how to make better investment choices—which means not following the crowd to an overbought market or sector, and not becoming wedded to your favorite investment strategy. You'll also learn to watch for key data points to make investment decisions, so you won't have to hastily react to every crisis and market blip.
Investing has become far more volatile and challenging than ever before following the implosion of the credit bubble, massive deleveraging of assets, and the global recession. However, this environment, and the impending inflation to follow, will create opportunities in areas such as equities, commodities, fixed-income, and currencies. Stein skillfully shows you how finding the bulls inside these bears can put you in a better position to make more informed investment decisions and benefit from the bubbles, bursts, and blips that will continue to occur in the years ahead.
Filled with practical advice that cannot be ignored, The Bull Inside the Bear will allow you to prosper in a new and challenging investment environment.
