Book Description

In the last decade the world has witnessed tremendous volatility. Even more uncertainty lurks in the next.

Never in our lifetimes has it been such a difficult time to be an investor.

Hedge fund manager and popular newsletter writer Jeffrey Dow Jones cuts through the confusion about the future and highlights some of the most powerful trends shaping the economy to come. The result is a sensible, flexible investment strategy that’s easy to implement – whether you’re an investor at home or an industry professional.

The Trade of the Decade is an inside look into the world of high finance. It shares some of the secrets that the world’s elite fund managers use to build their investment portfolios. And it’s written in a language that any investor can enjoy, regardless of their level of experience.


“Since the 1970s I’ve interviewed more financial analysts than anyone on the planet. I’d definitely rank Jeff Jones’ insights & strategies near the top of any savvy investor’s list.” — Joe Bradley, publisher of Investor’s Hotline

5.0 out of 5 stars Down to Earth investment advise September 30, 2011
I have been a regular reader of Jeffrey's newsletter for quite some time now. Of all the cacophony out there in the blogosphere about investment, I find his advise to be the one that makes the most sense to me. Jeffrey provides excellent perspectives not just on today's markets, but on what are the important considerations to be a successful investor. Listening carefully to what he says, you will be ready and standing at the right spot when the market decides to move. Jeffrey has taught me to be a more disciplined and prudent investor, and has given me some of the analytical tools and thinking processes to make decisions on my own as to what I think will happen, and how to position my portfolio accordingly. My retirement portfolio is much more solid and prepared to ride storms (and it has) thanks to Jeffrey's advise, and I thank him for that. This book could do the same for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Trade of the Decade September 29, 2011
I have been reading Jeffrey's analysis off and on for years. His candid approach to the market and the factors that drive it are easy to understand AND they make sense. In today's unpredictable environment, and especially most recently, an investor actually has to think outside the box. But how do they do that? Without some sort of logical Guide making the best decision will simply be impossible. The factors of technology and how that has affected "trading" ALONE make it difficult for the individual investor to find returns. A logical process and some commitment to understanding the NEW NORMAL (realistic expectations) will better prepare the investor for reasonable returns over the next 10 years. That being said, there is NO EASY ROAD...and if you don't want to do it yourself, it would be a very good idea to find someone who thinks like Jeff, speaks like Jeff and manages money like Jeff. It is only my opinion, but we are in a new era--really. If you want to get in the game you better have the tools, reading this book would be a good place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jeffrey Dow Jones - Book Review December 5, 2011
By John
Thanks for the opportunity; I have been a frequent recipient of Jeffrey's weekly commentary. I know he melds insight from years of experience and market observations into this book. It is a practical approach that the novice reader of technical analysis will appreciate.
Of course there are plenty of areas to obtain market insight, but i respect Jeffrey's comments and make sure that i am part of his readership...

4.0 out of 5 stars a real world plan for the decade September 30, 2011
By dd
Jeffery Dow Jones presents a good strategy for investing in the coming decade. I enjoyed that it is something doable for the average investor, and doesn't involve being wedded to the market 24/7.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great approach to a volatile market September 30, 2011
By Rory
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you read the weekly newsletter from The Draconian, you will love an even longer, extended version in this book! I am half-way through and I work for a financial software company, dealing with a range of firms. The strategy in this book is the foundation of what hedge funds do, and historically speaking, the majority of hedge funds have done well. If anything, after reading this book and doing due diligence on your portfolio of funds, you'll be able to brag to your friends saying you've started a poor mans hedge fund. If anything, this will help leverage a conversation if your in a bar trying to talk to a lady.

In The Draconian we trust!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shush, don't tell anyone... September 29, 2011
Seriously, don't tell anyone about this book or you might diminish your odds of making some nice money over the next couple of years. I read the electronic version and I am going to get the printed one, too, to have it handy at home. I am in the financial industry myself and read a lot of "you must buy this", "no, you must buy that", "this is the trade that will make you rich" crap every day. This is the first (!) publication I saw that doesn't come with some prepacked ideas that will make you a fortune (based on sniffing historical data, of course) but asks you to make up your own mind. Yes, you got that right, you have to think yourself, make up your mind and make your own decision ! "Why buy this book then ?" you might ask. Simple, because of the ideas and insights that should be the foundation of all the other investment thoughts you will have. It is concise, very well written and even fun to read ! But watch out, since it makes an easy read you might easily miss one or more important points. Which reminds me of... Gotta go back and look something up.
