Super Boom: Why the Dow Jones Will Hit 38,820 and How You Can Profit From It by Jeffrey A. Hirsch

Prosper from the profitable opportunities of the next financial market super boom

In 1976, Yale Hirsch predicted a fifteen-year super boom—a move in the stock market of 500% or more. His forecast proved accurate as the market rose and continued upward, eventually posting growth over 1,000% just before the tech crash in 2000. In Super Boom, Jeffrey Hirsch, President of the Hirsch Organization and Editor in Chief of the Stock Trader's Almanac, unveils the next market expansion. Building on his father's research from 1976, Hirsch has discovered that meteoric rises in stock indices are due to specific catalysts predominantly outside of the financial markets.

History has a way of repeating itself, especially in the financial markets. The American economy, and subsequently the world economy, has always existed in a cycle of boom and bust: gold, grain, oil, technology, and most recently, real estate, have all bubbled and popped. The key to investing profitably is spotting macroeconomic historical trends and positioning to reap the benefits. Step-by-step, Hirsch puts together the pieces of this puzzle by revealing the central drivers of a super boom.

  • Examines how new cultural paradigm-shifting technologies, as well as peace between major wars, could fuel a super boom
  • Discusses how the massive injection of money by the government, in response to the global financial crisis and the Great Recession, as well as wartime spending, will eventually create an inflationary environment
  • The data and research found here is based on historical information and the boom-and-bust cycle of the past century

As markets and economies struggle over the next several years, remember to keep your eye on the future and get ready for the coming super boom and the next 500% move in the market. With this book as your guide, you'll benefit from the insights that only Jeffrey Hirsch can provide.

Okay Happy Squid. I am so happy. Tomorrow morning, it's just me and a double chocolate muffin. Yummy. ------ Gale smiles his fanous smile that always makes me nervous. "I thought you were dead." Gale beams. I shake my head. "I thought you were." Suddenly, we are taken into glass portal thingiemagiggers. Glen stand at the door and smiles at me. "I'm betting on you, girl on water." He says, and I hug him. Even though I'm a lunatic, he's been by my side. Unlike lots of people. "Good luck and, Sophie?" He asks. "Yes?" I say. "Stay alive." Glen says and I am moving upward. We are on platforms in water. Well, on water. Pip catches my eye. It looks like she would have an easy time hiding and just waiting everyone out. I also see Nico. His eyes are set on the ground. I guess he knows I am looking at him. "LET THE 76TH HUNGER GAMES BEGIN!" I run for the Cornucopia. I grab a silver bow and arrows. A girl turns around and stabs me in the arm. I try to keep blood in my body until I find shelter. Gale finds me immediately. "Allies, right?" He mutters. An open wound is displayed on his neck. "Sure." I say. My vision becomes blurry and I find shelter in a tall tree. I treat Gale's wound with my secret district token. A gift from Katniss and Peeta. A necklace that turns into a vile, a spile, and any medicine. I say," Peroxide." And a small bottle appears in my hand. I pour some on his wound and he winces. I do the same with mine and a burning sensation spreads from my arm to my cheek. "So cold." He says, and I realize that the sun isn't out. It begins to get colder. Gale and I crowd together to keep warm. His body is warm and relaxing. I lay on his shoulder and fall asleep.---Next part at next result.-DTOTFA

Even though I believe Hirsch has made a valid prediction on the future of the markets, he doesn’t do a good job at proving his case. The book lacks the in-depth analysis behind the theory one would expect, and instead lists historical facts and figures as if he pulled his supporting documentation directly off Wikipedia. At times the book reads in the style of Billy Joel’s song "We Didn't Start the Fire," which makes you wonder why you’re reading the book at all. Regardless I would still recommend buying the book. Most investors are focused on the short term, be it daily, monthly, yearly, or even a decade, yet very few of us ever examine the macro picture covering a century or more. History does repeat itself, and there is an entire group of traders profiting from a repeating pattern in the markets. Hirsch’s theory will open your eyes to many different ways to make money as the markets oscillate between resistance and support, and eventually when the next boom occurs. I just wish he had done the needed analysis to prove his point better.
