Never before in our history have we seen such volatility as we have in the past two decades, and hedging has become today’s most crucial investing tool.
Omaha, NE (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
Investors trying to build wealth are finding that sharp market downturns are their worst enemy. In the last 18 years, the S&P 500 has experienced 16 violent declines, and professional investors have mastered hedging techniques to dramatically reduce the risks of market volatility. In short, this new era of market volatility is now the new normal.
In their new book,"Buy and Hedge: The 5 Iron Rules for Investing Over the Long Term," two leading investment experts, Wayne Ferbert and Jay Pestrichelli show individual investors how to implement strategies which include stocks, indexes, ETFs, and options that not only protect capital, but remain invested to appreciate with the markets.

“This is not your father’s market,” says Jay Pestrichelli, co-founder of ZEGA Financial, LLC. “Never before in our history have we seen such volatility as we have in the past two decades, and hedging has become today’s most crucial investing tool.”
“Investors want to learn how to execute strategies to generate profits,” says Wayne Ferbert, also co-founder of ZEGA Financial, LLC. “The 5 Iron Rules in our book define the Buy and Hedge strategy that any investor can implement to be successful.”
The authors’ techniques are easy to use, can be applied to most investment vehicles, and once implemented, require only modest “care and feeding.” Investors will discover how to take advantage of the hedge-building mechanisms built into low-cost index funds; invest with confidence hedging the downside; systematically manage portfolios for risk as well as return; and earn more profits with less fear.
