Great Rewrite of a Landmark Work, March 22, 2004 ByBrian E. Mitchell (Dunwoody, GA USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Intermarket Analysis: Profiting from Global Market Relationships (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) The original book Intermarket Technical Analysis was great for its time, however some of the relationships it described change in a deflationary environment which the author suggests we are in. However, the best reason for the rewrite was the writing in the earlier book was terrible in my opinion. It was a terribly boring book -- even if you are interested in the topic.This book is different, and is a much better book. It also seems to me that the sector analysis coverage is a little more thorough (although I have not opened them up side by side to tell).The only downside of this book is I don't think it gives you as many practical tools for tracking the business cycle and sector rotation as Pring's book, how to select stocks using technical analysis. It will give you the basics though, relying heavily on comparative relative strength.If you want to see the big picture and understand how the markets are tied together, I can without hesitation recommend this book. There are...

A Panoramic Market View, February 28, 2004 ByBrett Steenbarger (Naperville, IL USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Intermarket Analysis: Profiting from Global Market Relationships (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) John Murphy's "Intermarket Analysis" is an updating of his excellent 1991 text "Intermarket Technical Analysis". Both books are the most clearly written and thought-provoking texts on this topic that I have encountered.In the interest of disclosure, let me say that I do not know Mr. Murphy; nor has he or his publisher solicited this review. His editor at Wiley, Pamela Van Giessen, also edited a book I wrote on The Psychology of Trading. Knowing Ms. Van Giessen's integrity in a business that too often lacks that virtue, and having enjoyed Murphy's first book on the topic, I was eager to give "Intermarket Analysis" a thorough read.Murphy begins with a review of the markets from the 1980s, recapitulating themes from the first book, including the close linkages among the currency, bond, commodities, and stock markets. His discussion of the role of oil and gold in economic slumps and booms is first rate, as he traces the interplay among these markets...

Informative and macro. Good for rookies, January 24, 2005 ByServantofGod - See all my reviews This review is from: Intermarket Analysis: Profiting from Global Market Relationships (Wiley Trading) (Hardcover) The author is definitely an avante garde in the field of intermarket analysis, considering the first version of this book was published in 1991. However, with the advance in IT, the sophistication of today's market, and that traders can easily "cross" and "correlate" whatever they want on a "trade station" PC platform, the material provided in this second version becomes much less helpful than what it's predecessor then offered to its readers over a decade ago. Though much had been updated, I am afraid it still can't satisfy the savvy investors/traders of the day. As a pragmatic reader/trader, I must complain that the author had told little about the skills/techniques for identification of inflationary/deflationary cycles and the respective opportunities in sector rotation, thus asset allocation and trading/investment strategies. However, the author did show that history apparently didnt repeat itself in the relationships between bonds, commodities, stock, and currencies. You will...
