Introduction

The best way to profit in the stock market is to identify its absolute tops and bottoms and then have the courage to trade them. the Market shows you how to come very close to accomplishing Timing that goal.

Timing the Market is for investors who want to increase their returns and reduce their stress while making profits in the stock market. Investors of all experience levels can use public information and simple arithmetic to achieve this end. Private investors with very little time to devote to their portfolios will find that this guide simplifies their lives. Active traders with more time to devote to their investments can apply leverage to the concepts in this book. Professional investors can use the principles in the following pages to cut through their information overload and identify the most important issues. Timing the Market addresses all investors’ needs by starting with the broadest, most critical issues and systematically working down to individual security selection.

If you do not have a large computer filled with scrubbed data and an experienced staff of Ph.D.’s, or if you do but would like to speak intelligently in their absence, you will depend on this book. Many of the graphs in Timing the Market display two centuries of economic, social, and stock market data, some of which is reprinted in the appendixes together with web sites for the source material. This compilation of Wall Street practices has never been written before. Professional money managers and street-smart investors around the world pass this intelligence along an underground network of friends, families, and clients. Their insights are too valuable to be handed down like tribal war stories around a campfire; someone had to write them down in an organized manner with illustrations and anecdotes.

That someone had to be one of the few former schoolteachers with experience on Wall Street. Elementary school teachers are used to breaking a process down into simple steps and then explaining it with stories.

Teachers who believe a subject is important want to motivate the audience to a better understanding of its critical concepts. We clarify with parables and pictures and then make sure that our listeners have the tools (in your case they will be newspapers, books, and web sites) to accomplish the task. Your task is to improve your investing, and you will succeed because you are more motivated than any classroom of children that I ever taught.

When my family moved from the Midwest to New York City, I went to a different classroom. But this time I sat in the back instead of at the teacher’s desk up front. The siren call of Wall Street enticed me to New York University for a master’s degree in business administration, and this is the book that I wish I had in graduate school. I would have read it twice: once at the beginning of the program and again at the end of my study.

At the beginning of the MBA program Timing the Market would have given me the background I needed to understand the lectures. It would have provided some terminology, stock market history, and concepts upon which to build financial theory. It would have provided the bridge I needed from my nonbusiness background.

At the end of my graduate work in finance I needed Timing the Market to translate Wall Street theory into practice. This book would have prepared me for some of the jargon on the trading floor and in the boardroom. It would have given me simple arithmetic for making investment decisions and meeting with clients. It would have provided some of the benchmarks and signals that allow a professional to find the forest among all those trees. Timing the Market would have drawn a map through that forest and made me a much more productive employee.

Timing the Market grew out of a list of investing criteria that I have used over the years. Organizing these ideas for my own use turned into this book. These market timing benchmarks are common Wall Street practices that never made it into a book until now. Here is the conventional wisdom that is exchanged around the watercooler in successful brokerage firms and money management offices around the world.
