A review of the factors which will cause stock and property markets to fall once again and what to do about it. The first edition of this book was published in 2006 and corredtly called the sharp falls seen in property and stock markets between 2007 and 2009. It also correctly identified the underlying fault lines being excessive amounts of debt secured on ovevalued assets. Since then the Governments of the world have embarked on massive financial programs designed to debase their own currecnies in the hope of increasing the price, but not the value, of asstes. This has not been entirely without effect but, like King Canute before them, Governments will not thwart the financial tides. This will be a tough time for many but those who are informed by this book and the accompanying free updates will see fantastic opportunities.
John has been trading markets since the mid 80s, mainly writing options but also trading futures, spread and binary betting. The highlights have been trading right through the '87 Crash (mainly selling put options – hence the lack of hair!), annual turnover exceeding £2m of option premiums on his personal account, managing money in excess of $1m, winning a TV trading contest, and generally spending far too much time glued to screens. Whilst abusing himself in this way he also decided to help other traders and started The Technical Trader in 1989 and which has become the leading trading newsletter in the UK. The newsletter filled a void and the business has helped many traders over the years and is now on the web.
