Presenting a unique but simple philosophy for looking at the financial markets, How Markets Really Work, Second Edition: A Quantitative Guide to Stock Market Behavior is the one-stop resource for individual and professional traders, investors, money managers, and anyone else interested in better understanding the markets and how they function. Although predominantly focusing on short-term market actions, the trading strategies introduced and explained here can be applied equally well to longer-term investment opportunities.
Designed to help readers identify where market averages have given investors an edge and how to exploit those edges over and over again, the book is based on one central theme: buying short-term weakness has outperformed buying short-term strength over the past fifteen years. Revised and updated, this Second Edition includes three new chapters to further its comprehensive scope. These include coverage of an oscillator for identifying overbought and oversold market conditions, coverage of long-term market behavior that definitively illustrates that low-volatility stocks outperform high-volatility stocks, and an all-new short-term strategy for trading in S&P 500 stocks.
Packed with decades of market wisdom from financial experts Larry Connors and Cesar Alvarez, the book tackles common beliefs about investing head on, finding that much of what the trading world takes for granted is simply not true. Utilizing an illustration-rich format that clearly demonstrates market action, How Markets Really Work refutes the value of volume, shows that the rule of thumb for determining market strengtha market that rallies for a few days in a row is strong while one that drops over the same period is weakis a faulty indicator, and much more.
Predicated on the belief that, contrary to common wisdom, markets don't change, How Markets Really Work, Second Edition takes a clearheaded look at the facts of the last twenty-plus years to help you understand the real history of the financial markets and how you can profit from them.

The authors have done a good job of testing the statistics of some market myths. It would be more appropriate to name the book as "market myth buster". Read morePublished 17 months ago by windwine
I don't suppose "Another book repeating fairly common wisdom of entering trend dips and pullbacks" would be good marketing. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Sailor Dunc
