This chapter is from the book

I am going to begin this book with a promise.

I believe that most readers of this book will be able to complete it within two to three weeks. This work has been purposely left short of philosophy, fluff, and filler. Its content is dense with instruction, theoretical and actual performance results, tactics, and strategies that you can employ immediately.

If you do your part—that is, to complete the reading and to work through the examples within—you will emerge from the process with all the information you should need to become a savvy and highly successful investor for years to come.

You will learn to recognize when stocks should be bought, when they should be held, and when they should be sold.

The Weekly Market Power Gauge

You will learn readily followed, easy-to-understand, and efficient stock market indicators associated with general levels of interest rates that will help you identify those periods when stocks are very likely to advance in price, when they are only just likely to advance in price, when you might just as well stay home, and when staying home with your capital is likely to be an excellent idea.

You will also learn an indicator that is designed to identify, by just one weekly indicator of stock market performance, the time when prices are likely to continue to rise for weeks—often even for months—with a high probability of accuracy. The best gains in the stock market occur when this indicator is in effect. At other times, gains tend to be more limited.

The combination of these indicators may be taken to reflect the Weekly Market Power Gauge. When the gauge is indicating unanimous strength in the indicators you follow, the odds very heavily favor being in stocks. Low readings in the gauge suggest caution.

In other words, you will learn how and when to put the probabilities on your side—to invest when risks are the least and to recognize when risks are the greatest.

You will also learn how to build your stock portfolio—what to buy and what not to buy—and how to blend the components of your portfolio in such a way that the whole is better performing than the average of its parts, as well as how to select mutual funds and exchange traded funds that are most likely to outperform the average stock, fund, or exchange-traded fund.

I cannot promise profit on each and every trade. I can promise, however, that you will have put at your own disposal, the ability to invest objectively, to invest with a plan and strategy, and to invest, over the long term, very successfully.
