Techniques, Tools, and Strategies for Profiting in the Stock Market
"The days of easy stock market profits are over "
With this blunt, honest assessment, Timothy Hayes launches The Research Driven Investor, his comprehensive introduction and overview of the top-down approach to sophisticated stock analysis and intelligent stock selection. Understandable enough for individual investors, yet advanced enough for the most experienced market pro, it presents a unique, technique-driven approach to garner profits in virtually any market environment.
Written for investors looking to develop their own quantifiable market indicators--as well as those seeking to enhance their understanding of the forces that drive stock prices--The Research Driven Investor explains how to:
* Determine the optimal strategy for profiting in the market
* Develop a clear-cut perspective of where the market is headed
* Combine the two for deciding what to buy and when to buy it--and the best time to sell
Successful investing is not a guessing game. It is a disciplined process of understanding the markets, determining the mix of assets that will work best at a given time, and allocating your money accordingly. Discover the technical approaches, tools, and methodologies proven to consistently produce clear buy and sell signals--and achieve market-beating results--in The Research Driven Investor.
During the last five years of the twentieth century, U.S. stock market investors found it virtually impossible not to earn double-digit returns. But over the long run, market veterans know--and the historical record has proven--that investors will need knowledge, technical ability, and strategic discipline to sustain these types of returns. This return to reality will require investors to know what they're doing, understand the many factors that drive today's markets, and exercise care, knowledge, and active management the types of skills covered in The Research Driven Investor.
This proactive book explains how to develop a steady, accurate market outlook, reveals the issues essential to developing an effective investing strategy, then introduces you to a proven, wide-ranging array of investment tools for turning that strategy into consistent profits. Written to confront and overcome the market factors that have historically worked against earning consistent trading returns, The Research Driven Investor provides specific guidelines to help you:
* Obtain the data and analytical tools you need
* Work with the data to build effective indicators
* Combine the indicators into an accurate investment model
* Use that model while screening for promising stocks
Because the market doesn't care whether you win or lose, The Research Driven Investor doesn't treat market success as automatic. You learn how to gather and understand valuable economic and stock market data; develop trend-sensitive indicators that point out both long-term opportunities and short-term market reversals; follow the actions of the Fed and benefit from an in-depth understanding of their intentions; and, finally, asset allocation techniques to maximize your investment performance and returns.
Ignoring magic bullet tricks and shortcuts--because, as virtually every successful investor will tell you, there are no shortcuts--The Research Driven Investor shows you how to achieve better-than-market returns through skill, knowledge, and discipline. To call it a useful book is an understatement. In the coming years--when understanding how the market has always worked, and how it will continue to work, will be a requirement for success--it will be an essential book.
