Intermarket Analysis: Profiting from Global Market Relationships / Edition 2

Intermarket analysis has come a long way in the ten years since John Murphy wrote his groundbreaking Intermarket Technical Analysis: Trading Strategies for the Global Stock, Bond, Commodity, and Currency Markets. Although the idea that global markets were linked to each other was once viewed with skepticism, intermarket analysis is now considered among today's most important technical disciplines. Today, market observers look to history for parallels that may predict future market performance. In Intermarket Analysis: Profiting from Global Market Relationships, Murphy incorporates and reflects on the most recent world market data to show how seemingly disparate world markets interact and ultimately influence each other. Beginning with a brief overview of the intermarket changes that launched the bull market of the 1980s, Intermarket Analysis next revisits the stock market crash of 1987 and its importance to the development of intermarket theory. The author then discusses the 1990 bear market with emphasis on its relevance to later global events. Finally, the text offers in-depth coverage and analysis of the deflation trend that resulted in the bursting of the stock market bubble in 2000 followed by three years of stock market decline.

Citing recent world events that have had a profound impact on even longstanding economic relationships, Murphy shows us what earlier intermarket models are still working and, more importantly, what has changed. Based on the premise that intermarket analysis is not a "static" model, he examines the overall economic impact of such events as escalating tensions and wars in the Middle East, the decade-long downward spiral of the Japanese economy, and global over-investment in technology stocks. Drawing on his vast experience as both an educator and an expert trader, the author lays out his key tools to understanding global markets and illustrates how these tools can help today's serious investors profit in any economic climate. Armed with the knowledge of how economic forces impact the various markets and sectors, investors and traders can profit by exploiting opportunities in markets about to rise and avoiding those poised for a fall.
