STA Monthly Meeting & Summer Party – July 2012 Investing in the second lost decade

Martin will talk about his latest book, co-authored with partners Joe Turner and Tom Kopas, Investing in the Second Lost Decade. He will show how he uses technical analysis to navigate secular and cyclical trends in stocks, bonds and commodities.

On March 24 2000 the S&P Composite began a secular bear market and by June 1 2012 had lost 17% from that peak. When adjusted for inflation the drop exceeded 30%. In this presentation Martin Pring will explain why he thinks the secular bear market in equities has further to run and why the buy hold approach will continue to be a failed strategy. In doing so he will outline the root causes of secular bears and the conditions that will signal the next secular bull. Long-term trends in commodities and interest rates are germane to this analysis and will also be covered. Finally, he will introduce the Dow Jones Pring Business Cycle Index (DJPRING), a new rules based index that capitalizes on these concepts.
