Really an eye opening book filled with action tips about how to prepare for what is coming.
Dr. PatMannelly
Read chapter 5 first as it will give more of a basis for understanding some of the underlying ideas presented in the book and may make a bit more sense.
Curtis Henrie
Like most investors in the U.S., my fascination with our economy and what makes it tick increased significantly in 2008.

For starters let me just say that the most valuable piece of information included in this book is the SMA methodology he presents in order to determine and subsequently confirm major (and by that I mean multi-year) market directional changes. It is imperfect, and the timing process he uses in order to confirm both his exits and reentries is *very* late in terms of the actual turns, but after testing and tweaking on the S&P, DOW, and other markets, including most importantly the Nikkei, I have now developed my own indicator based on his that I believe better times these cross over points, as well as helps to minimize the transactional noise that occurs during choppy non-trending flat years, such as with the Nikkei from late 2009 to early 2013. If you test his process, you will see that Mr. McHugh's timing process works poorly in this type of situation. Still there is tremendous value in his process, and if you test for yourself, you will see that he does a good job "catching the middle." Hence, I would not use his timing process to move in/out 100% due to his confirmation delays, but using it for a smaller portion of one's portfolio dedicated to the index being tracked may make sense for the down crosses after significant trends upward. For this alone, I am grateful to McHugh and was glad I purchased this book.

As for the rest of the book itself, I felt that although Mr. McHugh does an excellent job presenting his case, he does so with such certainty that I felt compelled to question his premise to see if it truly holds up. For example, he states that he believes what he is presenting has a 96% chance of coming to pass, and only a 4% chance of not occurring.

I won't write a long diatribe. I don't have the time

My basic thoughts are that the Megaphone Formation, that is the basic premise of the book is an important warning that the stock market is due for a major correction, along with the world economy We don't know yet whether the ice age predicted will actually occur. This is not a novel idea of Dr. McHugh's, but he is the only one calling it to our attention.

What does Dr. McHugh advise? Get out of the market, get out of debt, buy Treasuries, foreign currencies, gold or silver. Standard recommendations of many other authors.

What do I feel are the downside of the book?

McHugh is very commercial, pushing the purchase of his newsletter and advisory far more than most authors would.

Also,Dr. McHugh includes a great deal of his religious beliefs in the book. Totally inappropriate for a book on investing/economy. Very poor taste. Just like separation of church and state is a standard of our country, so should there be a separation of religion and investment authors,

I just finished reading this last night. Though I am a platinum subscriber to his newsletter, I think that this book helped confirm some of my investment strategies and added some new approaches. I thought the data was very thought-out and the history and facts behind the conclusions was good. This book gave me a lot of hope and peace for what the future can hold for me, even if our country descends into economic collapse. I recommend that anyone read who is contemplating where our economy is heading and how to diversify and prosper.

This is a good book for those who have some understanding of technical analysis and some understanding of the stock market. Some information is given for portfolio management but no recommendation is given to become self sufficient. A very good book that everyone should read including our political establishment. On 1/8/14 the Dow is 16462 and a dividend of just above 2%. Charles Dow considered a dividend below 3.5% to be too expensive, perhaps we should too. Couple this with the technical formation illustrated in this book and you have a increasing risk in the overall market, offset by current low commodity prices. Precious metals are moving rapidly to the East with increasing demand and decreasing supply! Why do I say this, because I was former CFP, Registered Investment Adviser and Registered Principal. Now would be a good time to get out of debt and become self sufficient.

He writes clearly. Using multiple methodologies (technical, historical, cyclical, fundamental, etc) that show no "marriage" to one or two modalities. To the point, he is no "perma-bear", and has never been one. Can give you a big-picture road map for making intermediate trading direction as events occur in the near future.

This book is a good introduction for someone not familiar with Dr. McHugh's work. The suggestions are common sense type advice for anyone interested in learning how to protect and possibly improve upon your wealth. This is an easy read for the most novice of investors.

I gave the book 3 stars because most of what is presented is covered in Dr. McHugh's newsletters. As such, there was not a lot of new information in this book for me.

I know, I know. Don't talk with your friends about politics, sex, or money. But, if you knew that a huge hurricane was coming wouldn't you warn them? It's NOT that you want that storm to come, but that you know it is and want those you care for to be ready. The good Dr. lays out the solid facts for why this disaster is coming (and roughly when), and also some steps you can take to get ready. I bought six copies to give to friends and relatives. I also sent out a buy recommendation to many many others. As with a hurricane coming, you only have two choices---get ready or ignore it. Choose wisely.
