From boom to bust, business cycles create investment opportunities. Investors who know how to recognize, predict and plan for these cycles reap significant benefits. This knowledge gives investors an edge not only in today's thriving bull market, but in market downturns as well. Managing portfolio performance and volatility is of growing importance for all investors in today's rollercoaster market. Pundits and talking heads alternate between touting the glories of a high-flying market with seemingly no end in sight to warning of the possibilities of a disastrous bear market just waiting to happen. In "Profiting in Bull or Bear Markets", portfolio manager and newsletter editor George Dagnino shares the insights and strategies that have won him praise in "Forbes" as one of the top five investment professionals for his decade-long record of excellent performance in bull and bear markets. Dagnino builds a guide that explains how business cycles drives the prices of stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies and other assets and how to identify sources of risk using business cycles. Building on that foundation, he then shows readers how to invest in tune with the times in order to achieve more predictable returns by minimizing losses. Dagnino assembles the different factors and elements needed to develop a sound investment strategy, showing the best times to buy and sell stocks, bonds and other assets. He shows how trends in business cycles act as the unifying force amongst the nuances of fixed income markets, the stock market, commodity markets and currencies. Dagnino provides guidelines on how to achieve the best returns by explaining crucial topics such as: managing risk and volatility; seasonality of stock and bond markets; and key economic and technical indicators. Although many investors play the stock market as a game, Dagnino shows that investors who simply follow their instincts can only guess how their portfolios will perform. "Profiting in Bull or Bear Markets" serves as a proven set of rules investors can use to play the game - and the more knowledge a player has, the better his chances of winning.
