Editorial Review - Book Description:


Trying to trade stock, bond, commodity and currency markets without intermarket awareness is like trying to drive a car without looking out the side and rear windows—very dangerous. In this guide to intermarket analysis, the author uses years of experience in technical analysis plus extensive charts to clearly demonstrate the interrelationshps that exist among the various market sectors and their importance. You`ll learn how to use activity in surrounding markets in the same way that most people employ traditional technical indicators for directional clues. Shows the analyst how to focus outward, rather than inward, to provide a more rational understanding of technical forces at work in the marketplace.

An in-depth look at market sectors and how they interact, May 23, 2000 ByRuth Henriquez Lyon (Duluth, Minnesota USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Intermarket Technical Analysis: Trading Strategies for the Global Stock, Bond, Commodity, and Currency Markets (Wiley Finance) (Hardcover) In this book John Murphy explains the interactions of the four major market sectors mentioned in the book's title. He structures his analyses around the concept of the business cycle, the recurring boom and bust loop which the economy has gone through over the past two centuries. Showing how the four major sectors (as well as other economic factors) interact in feedback loops to drive the business cycle, he gives us the information we need to see what stage of the cycle we're currently experiencing and where we're headed. Knowing this we can better decide where to park our assets in the short and medium-term future. His outline of the various stages of the business cycle is very helpful, even though it's a rough guide. For instance, although gold does not seem to have played its assigned role in this scheme, it is clear that commodities did bottom in the third quarter of last year, signaling that a market top would follow in the not-too-distant future. Thus, even...

A true technical analysis classic, April 28, 2000 By A Customer This review is from: Intermarket Technical Analysis: Trading Strategies for the Global Stock, Bond, Commodity, and Currency Markets (Wiley Finance) (Hardcover) There is very little information out there on Intermarket analysis (see Martin Pring's "All Season Investor" and Murray Ruggiero "Cybernetic Trading Strategies" among the few to offer info in this niche). Turns out the Intermarket form of technical analysis is among the most important in analyzing the economy and the various links between financial sectors. It's a key to deciphering the intermediate and longer term trends (& with Ruggiero, possibly short term trends). Amazingly, nearly all high paid economists and many financial market analysts get it wrong, but the markets collectively don't by definition. (You can't trade an economist, there is no "economic futures index", and the economists generally aren't traders since they don't know how.) Once you have the basics of technical analysis under your belt, this book is a pivotal and necessary step forward in an education towards deciphering the increasingly interrelated worldwide...

THIS BOOK WILL EXPLAIN YOU HOW MARKETS REALLY WORK, September 23, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: Intermarket Technical Analysis: Trading Strategies for the Global Stock, Bond, Commodity, and Currency Markets (Wiley Finance) (Hardcover) This is the best book you can find in advanced technical analisys. Together with John's book "Technical analisys of futures markets" and the Schwager on Futures series is a "must" for whoever wants to start in Futures Trading. This book is so logical that it is incredible! Reading it and testing its theory you will discover the way the markets work. As a Futures trader is the book that has helped more than any other one my way of trading (That seems quite succesfully at the moment!). As a Member of IFTA (International Federation of Technical Analisys) is the book that I find more logical, because IT HAS A REAL LINK WITH THE MACROECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT, AND EXPLAIN IT IN A SIMPLER AND FUNNIER WAY! The book is not supereasy to understand, even if it has been written in a very good way. Buon Trading!
