Review

''A terrific economic primer with practical applications.'' --Vitaliy Katsenelson; Director of Research at Investment Management Associates Inc., author of Active Value Investing (Wiley). ''I've been looking for a book like this for a long time. Carr and Cornehlsen, professional researchers by occupation, have done superb work here in terms of the relationships between various indicators, the economy, and the stock market, explaining everything from the methodologies they used to the relationships themselves with complete thoroughness and rigor. It's nearly impossible to read this book and subsequently work on models of the economy or the stock market without incorporating elements found herein. This book is long overdue and put together by the right researchers. I am supremely confident that anyone who reads it and studies their work will find themselves referring back to it for a long time.'' --Ralph Vince, author of various texts on Risk-Opportunity Analysis, including The Handbook of Portfolio Mathematics: Formulas for Optimal Allocation & Leverage (Wiley).

''I'm a big fan of applying the composite approach to create market models. Multiple indicators reduce risk, and this book illustrates that idea with a clear example on how models can be constructed and used.''

''Understanding economics can improve investment performance. But the subject can be daunting. The authors strip away the jargon and focus solely on the practical application of economics, delivering a valuable approach for the individual investor that can be used immediately or built upon to personalize the model.''

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In Conquering the Divide the authors state, "economics is an important but often overlooked component of stock market analysis". In this spirit, this book is an excellent primer for those looking to incorporate economic data into their analysis. The book equips the reader with plenty of knowledge concerning the makeup and use of many popular economic indicators. More importantly, the authors demonstrate how to technically manipulate the economic datum making these indicators more responsive and reliable. Armed with this information, the authors then suggest systems and rules which may be easily applied to gauge the health and state of the stock market. For those looking to apply technical analysis to more than just price data and for those looking to compliment their own analysis with an economic overlay, I would recommend this book as an excellent resource.
