Jeffrey Hirsch discusses how to capture market-beating returns by following specific stock market cycles

While predicting the direction of the stock market at any given point is difficult, it's a fact that the market exhibits well-defined and sometimes predictable patterns. While cycles do not repeat exactly all of the time, statistical evidence suggests that cyclical tendencies are very strong and should not be ignored by investors. The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will show you how to profit from these recurring stock market patterns and cycles.

Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, President of the Hirsch Organization and Editor-in-Chief of the Stock Trader's Almanac , this reliable resource explains why these cycles occur, provides the historical evidence behind them, and shows you how to capture consistent profits from them moving forward. In addition to describing his most widely followed cycles and patters, Hirsch also discusses both longer term boom-bust economic cycles and shorter term tendencies involving the best days, weeks, and months of the year to trade the market.

The methods found here follow everything from presidential election cycles to the "Santa Claus" effect Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, the pre-eminent authority on market cycles and seasonal patterns The strategies explored are easy-to-implement, and based on research that has proven profitable over the course of time

For investors looking to beat the buy-and-hold philosophy, The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will provide simple, actionable ideas that have stood the test of time and consistently outperformed the market.

This book overwhelmed me with the range of stock market patterns and cycles that can help to better understand market occurrences and guide an investor's decisions. Tho this statistical review is mostly a mathematical analysis as is much of investing, it was an easy and enjoyable reading experience.

I picked this up just to look at a table it contained. I decided to go ahead and check it out so I could look at the table more closely. Before returning the book the next day I looked through some of the other chapters it contained, and I decided to actually read the book. I'm glad I did!

There is lots of interesting information in the book - the best months for trading, how the markets have fared on the different days of the week, how they perform on different holidays, how they tend to perform during the four-year election cycles, and much more regarding yearly cycles.
