Until now, market timing as it applies to successful investment decision-making has been an elusive, at times vague instrument. This book provides a clear, relevant model for using the business cycle as a tool for timing investments. At last, here is a clear framework for assessing returns at different stages of the business cycle, and for determining the timing relevance as it relates to stocks, bonds, mutual funds, other specific investments and general asset allocation. A solid and dynamic approach.
