Book Description

Knowing how to properly read the market cycle is the difference between a lifetime of losses in the stock market or consistent profitable gains regardless of stocks being traded.

William J. O'Neil pioneered a very competent system with the CAN SLIM methodology. However, the techniques of timing the market cycles has come under some scrutiny lately... particularly since the crash of 2008. While the basic idea of distribution days and follow through days are solid, volatile markets may need a modified approach.

The goal of this book is to teach new and experienced investors how to accurately determine market cycles. As the author states in his book, this should at least double the profitability of longer term investors.

By the end of this roughly 6,000 word publication with over 40 very detailed charts, the reader should be able to:

*confidently know the overall market cycle
*recognize signs when it is weakening
*accurately call market bottoms to buy cheap stock at the lowest values
*preserve capital in bear markets and make large windfalls in bull markets
*combine this strategy with almost any other existing style available

If a stock market trader wants to merely buy and sell an index such as the SPX, QQQQ, or other.... this book is for him or her. If an investor wants to buy at the beginning of a new bull cycle and sell once a bear ensues, this book will assist.

This publication is not a collection of confusing patterns or useless advice such as, 'buy low sell high'. It is a training module to help struggling investors quickly become profitable and improve the bottom line for experienced investors.

How to Become a Market Timing Guru is a 'must have' publication for your trading library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the download April 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would have given this 5 stars but it's missing some of the practice charts. This is a minor flaw as it does give the ones needed to understand the concepts given.
I opened my charting program and filled in the missing practice charts. Also, If you download Kindle for the PC the colors mentioned in the book are also on the screen.
It does make it easier to understand than just seeing it on the Kindle. I also added a 40 and 80 period MA to the volume to help with the distribution analysis.

Not sure how someone can actually write a negative review if they actually read this book. This is a book that takes longer to read then others. Why? It's because it is packed with wisdom. It's what I would call "high yield". The author gives only relevant information and does not waste any time.

I was absolutely fascinated by his method of volume analysis and never wanted the book to end. I finished the book wanting more. Being new to the investing arena, I have spent countless hours reading many finance books and it wasn't until I completed this book that I can truthfully say i now feel optimistic and confident about the market. Thank you Kiev and I will be watching for more of your publications.

To someone thinking about purchasing this book, think no more; this is a must buy for anyone looking to gain an edge on Market timing!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great book. November 7, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Who would think that this little $3.99 ebook would be so packed full of wisdom. Of the dozens of trading books I have read, this has to offer the most value. Clear, concise and completely to the point. Brevity is the soul of wit.

Why aren't they all like this?

Buy it. How can you go wrong at $3.99?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great and useful message, rough around the edges. June 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would give this 3.5 stars. Kiev has a demonstrable understanding of market mechanics and what plays out in price moves, with a subsequent system for detecting potential changes in price direction. Its good, and it works. The book is only $3.99 for Kindle, and the book is very short. But the reason for not giving the book more stars are:

1. Profound lack of editing on this book has left major grammatical errors and layout errors - looks more like a draft than a polished end product.

2. Beyond what layout there is, there is also a lack of layout - theres no quick access table of contents. In going back to review some concepts, I had to read a whole section again because I couldnt find the piece that I was after because the detail isnt broken down into proper headings. Theres two sections, Bull and Bear Markets for the Beginner, and Andvanced Bull and Bear Markets - Distribution Analysis. It could have been broken up more to make it easier to work with.

That said, the material seems sound. My only reservation for only taking a star of for the above issues, is that I am left with an unnerving feeling - has this book been reviewed by the author, and does it contain any logical errors in it that a reader could falter by misunderstanding. I dont know the answer to that, but with the other errors, it makes me wonder.

Because of the errors I have also wanted to connect with Kiev to discuss with him, but theres no such ability and there arent enough examples in the book in my view. I would be more than happy to buy another that was loaded with examples. Right now I am looking at the current $COMPQ and it has tanked, but the approach here doesnt flag the situation as bad, but I am sure thats my own misunderstanding.

I would recommend a new edition thats polished. This could be a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Gold for traders and investors February 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been investing and trading since 2000, during the dotcom bubble. After reading a couple of Peter Lynch's books, I felt well armed and convinced that retail (individual) investors and traders really did have an edge over institutional (big money) investors and traders. However, I got burned badly more times than I can count. In the thirteen years since then, I've gone from saving every $20 I could to collect a small amount for investing through a broker that allowed the purchase of partial shares --which became an accounting nightmare at tax time-- to running my account above $100k and then back down to $4k multiple times, and many places in-between. Peter Lynch has a lot of good information to share for investors and is very inspirational, but there is one thing I really believed in (that he said) that I wished I hadn't: that you cannot time the markets --in other words, you can't identify the end of bull runs (beginning of bear market or correction) and the end of bears (beginning of a bull run). After many years, I finally bought a subscription to the Investors Business Daily (IBD) site and began to trade in the "confirmed" direction of the market. It was only after doing so that my gains became more steady and reliable. If I'd been aware of this in 2001, I wouldn't have gotten in on a false bottom, just before the market continued its downward descent, nor would I have lost so much in 2008-2009 in our latest major crash, nor some of the less major downturns that have occurred since I began investing and trading. After finding IBD, I still wanted to know how to do this analysis on my own. In this book, Kiev teaches you very clearly how to do so.

This is the very first thing I would teach someone who's considering entering the stock market.

1.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not
This book is a little longer than a magazine article. Maybe a 30 minute read. If you read slow. Too many of the concepts presented are subjective as in "high volume." How high? Read more

A book on market timing should be organized, clear and readable. This book lacks all those qualities, probably because what it needs most is professional editing. Read more

Very poor quality, even for an eBook. Some free white papers on in the web are better than that. There is nothing new in this book. Read more
