“Tony Crescenzi knows bonds and his book proves it.”

Bill Gross, Managing Director, Pacific Investment Management Company



In 2002, Anthony Crescenzi opened the door to an innovative new style of investing with his publication of The Strategic Bond Investor.

More relevant now than ever, The Strategic Bond Investor provides a sorely needed alternative to the stock market game—where the rewards for taking risks have been less than desirable.

  • The powerful role of the Federal Reserve and the art of Fed watching

  • How to read the bond market’s “crystal ball”—the yield curve

  • The five tenets of successful interest-rate forecasting

  • Techniques for forecasting market behavior

  • How to use credit ratings to your advantage

  • The best bond investing strategies



This comprehensive, up-to-the-minute guide provides straightforward techniques for cashing in on the unlimited potential of bond investing—whether your interests are long or short term.
