For starters let me just say that the most valuable piece of information included in this book is the SMA methodology he presents in order to determine and subsequently confirm major (and by that I mean multi-year) market directional changes. It is imperfect, and the timing process he uses in order to confirm both his exits and reentries is *very* late in terms of the actual turns, but after testing and tweaking on the S&P, DOW, and other markets, including most importantly the Nikkei, I have now developed my own indicator based on his that I believe better times these cross over points, as well as helps to minimize the transactional noise that occurs during choppy non-trending flat years, such as with the Nikkei from late 2009 to early 2013. If you test his process, you will see that Mr. McHugh's timing process works poorly in this type of situation. Still there is tremendous value in his process, and if you test for yourself, you will see that he does a good job "catching the middle." Hence, I would not use his timing process to move in/out 100% due to his confirmation delays, but using it for a smaller portion of one's portfolio dedicated to the index being tracked may make sense for the down crosses after significant trends upward. For this alone, I am grateful to McHugh and was glad I purchased this book.

As for the rest of the book itself, I felt that although Mr. McHugh does an excellent job presenting his case, he does so with such certainty that I felt compelled to question his premise to see if it truly holds up. For example, he states that he believes what he is presenting has a 96% chance of coming to pass, and only a 4% chance of not occurring.

This is a good book for those who have some understanding of technical analysis and some understanding of the stock market. Some information is given for portfolio management but no recommendation is given to become self sufficient. A very good book that everyone should read including our political establishment. On 1/8/14 the Dow is 16462 and a dividend of just above 2%. Charles Dow considered a dividend below 3.5% to be too expensive, perhaps we should too. Couple this with the technical formation illustrated in this book and you have a increasing risk in the overall market, offset by current low commodity prices. Precious metals are moving rapidly to the East with increasing demand and decreasing supply! Why do I say this, because I was former CFP, Registered Investment Adviser and Registered Principal. Now would be a good time to get out of debt and become self sufficient.

I should have read the reviews before purchasing this book. The book has some interesting ideas, if you are looking for alternative points of view.

My frustration with the book is that one particular indicator for the DJIA, on page 41, which supposedly will tell us when the market will take a turn for the worse, was last updated on June 30th, 2013 (as pointed out on page 41). So, by the time of my purchase, it was over 1.5 years old information. I decided to reach out to the author and inquire about obtaining an updated graph, for which I was immediately directed to the paid service.
I did persist on my request for an updated graph, as I didn't purchase the book to have to sign up for a paid service, and was met with all kinds of insults, intimidation, and the threat of a lawsuit (and have the e-mails from the author to prove it). The author even had the audacity to threaten me if I wrote something negative about the book on Amazon.com. Can you believe that?
The book has outdated information; just know that you are buying advertising to sign up for a paid service. The named indicator is trade mark protected, however, the book tells you how to calculate it, so you can do it yourself, and it doesn't require a PhD in anything to do it, just an Excel spreadsheet and publicly available information on the DJIA.
I didn't finish the book because toward the end it is mostly advertising to the paid service. Many books advertise a paid service, which is nothing new. If you have to push it that much, it makes me wonder how good it really is.
Your call if you want to buy it, just beware.

I won't write a long diatribe. I don't have the time

My basic thoughts are that the Megaphone Formation, that is the basic premise of the book is an important warning that the stock market is due for a major correction, along with the world economy We don't know yet whether the ice age predicted will actually occur. This is not a novel idea of Dr. McHugh's, but he is the only one calling it to our attention.

What does Dr. McHugh advise? Get out of the market, get out of debt, buy Treasuries, foreign currencies, gold or silver. Standard recommendations of many other authors.

What do I feel are the downside of the book?

McHugh is very commercial, pushing the purchase of his newsletter and advisory far more than most authors would.

Also,Dr. McHugh includes a great deal of his religious beliefs in the book. Totally inappropriate for a book on investing/economy. Very poor taste. Just like separation of church and state is a standard of our country, so should there be a separation of religion and investment authors,
