Excellent, very usable information, September 14, 2008 ByRoger E. Ison "redant" (Loveland, CO USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Seven Indicators That Move Markets: Forecasting Future Market Movements for Profitable Investments (Hardcover) Kasriel is Northern Trust's big gun economist/forecaster, and one of the best economic forecasters as measured by long term accuracy. In this book, he explains very clearly what he looks at, how he interprets the data, what it means and why it works. If you want to develop your own economic outlook, this book is an excellent place to start learning how. It is, however, for serious students. Not lightweight.

Okay as a supplement, but far from compleat, July 14, 2006 ByServantofGod - See all my reviews This review is from: Seven Indicators That Move Markets: Forecasting Future Market Movements for Profitable Investments (Hardcover) Believe it or not, after I finished the whole book, I couldnt identify what the "7 indicators that move markets" are per book title. Content wise, the book is satisfying. However, as an economist, the author might have tried too hard to put all his knowledge in this 185 page content book that readers easily lose track of key points and feel it disorganized. The explanation or elaboration per particular economic indicators and scenario is good. Nevertheless, the relationship between particular indicators/chapters/scenarios are weak. As a whole, it appears to be a pack of lecture notes more than a compleat investment book. In the very case you want to know how fed fund futures...yield curves...credit spreads...volatility...option price derivatives...futures price relationships...industrial commodity prices...(I finally found these seven terms out in the book flip) affect the market, this book is good for you. If not, please give this a pass.
