Follow trends and make money, or don't and don't make money. Robbins wants investors to follow trends. His effort is to be saluted. -- Michael W. Covel, bestselling author of Trend Following, The Complete Turtle Trader, and Trend Commandments
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 17, 2012
After three bear markets in the last decade, individual investors – especially baby boomers careening toward retirement – don’t have the risk tolerance to be burned once again. Large bull and bear markets unfold in select securities even in flat stock market environments. Each decade has been witness to both meteoric rises and falls, with young companies growing into titans and former Wall Street darlings plummeting into bankruptcy. Whole sectors march to their own tunes if investor sentiment is swayed enough. Capturing these moves and focusing on the most potentially profitable market areas has become key in today’s investment strategy.
"Tactical Trend Trading: Strategies for Surviving and Thriving in Turbulent Markets" by Robert Robbins, who is a hedge fund manager, is set at the core of the author’s investment philosophy, ie. Technical Analysis. Robbins details the advantages of this pragmatic approach to analyzing the supply and demand dynamics that shape the prices we see every day in markets, ranging from stocks and bonds to commodities and currencies. His approach starts out with the basic premise that if market participants learn to embrace change, they will be better able to harness its ability to unlock profits in every corner of the market. To that end, Robbins equips you not only with the technical trading tools you need to analyze the market backdrop and identify and trade with market-prevailing trends, but also with psychological guidelines that will enable you to blast through the emotional obstacles that stand in the way of profit generation and risk control.
Tactical Trend Trading uses a blend of technical analysis and trend trading in order to increase your net worth and gain financial freedom in an uncertain world. It entails significantly less risk than long-term buy-and-hold investing in individual stock.
It takes commitment, discipline, and the right psychological makeup, but for those willing and able to make the journey, it is the truest path to financial freedom.
