Ablin takes you on his twenty-year journey toward a unified, rational approach to investing that can help you weather even the most turbulent financial storms. This book may be one of the best investments you will ever make.”

His grasp of the financial markets makes him eminently qualified to develop an extremely sound and practical approach in order to protect and enhance wealth for investors.”
--Edward (“Ned”) Riley, Jr., Former Chief Investment Officer for State Street Global Advisors and Chief Investment Officer, Riley Asset Management
“With nearly three decades of experience, Jack Ablin's superb intellectual thinking is reflected inReading Minds and Markets. This is great reading for the motivated investor.”

Youcando more to protect yourself from market risks and down markets. The secret: Understand the big picture and know when to shift money toward more promising industry groups, sectors, or asset classes. This strategy is called “global macro investing”--and, as Chief Investment Officer for Harris Private Bank, Jack Ablin has used it to deliver results for many of the world's wealthiest families and individuals.
InReading Minds and Markets,Ablin distills his techniques into a remarkably simple, commonsense five-step plan thatanyinvestor can use. You'll discover how to anticipate some of the more significant shifts in global markets and move investments toward areas that are more likely to grow. Equally important, you'll learn how to overcome bad habits that inevitably lead to failure--habits all too often reinforced by the financial media.
