From the Publisher:
"Rothchild finds some compelling evidence that a Bear might be lurking in the woods. [He] addresses the subject with candor."-The Wall Street Journal
|"In a timely antidote to the fever now raging in the markets, Rothchild's new book dishes a long dive when investors least expect it." -Washington Post Book World
|April 14, 2000. The Dow drops over 600 points. Investors the world over receive a startling reminder that "what goes up, must come down." Today's exceptionally volatile markets exemplify the hair-raising financial instability that most analysts see as a continuing trend. More than ever before, investors deserve a sound explanation of how to profit-or minimize loss-in such a climate, and be prepared for the inevitable dips. In Survive and Profit in Ferocious Markets, bestselling financial writer John Rothchild provides a rare understanding of profit making when the markets are tenuous, with volatility at every turn. Here is specific, comprehensive, and timely information on:
|* Where the economy is going and how exactly to invest in it
|* How investors can negotiate the awkward terrain between the new and old economies
|* Investment strategies at different stages of a volatile market
|* The psychology of investing, a history of the markets, and biographies of prominent investors, including Roy Neuberger and Philip Carret
|With wit, wisdom, and a penchant for telling a good story, Rothchild provides all investors, from novices to pros, with the tools to protect their investments and prosper.The Bear Book focuses on protecting assets and minimizing losses during a bear market and on taking advantage of unique opportunities for profit. John Rothchild chronicles the long history of bear markets, exploring in detail exactly what constitutes a bear market and how it affects us. Along with his own expertise, the author draws on respected and knowledgeable names such as Jim Rogers, Jim Grant, and Martin Zweig, among a host of prominent investment advisors, strategists, and fund managers. The result is a comprehensive chronicle that deftly and definitively fills the "bearish information gap". Rothchild distinguishes the characteristics of past bear markets, examining what triggered them, how long they lasted - and why. He probes the unique psychology of bearish investing, concentrating on which types of investments generally do well during a downturn in the market. His answers to some questions clarify, among other key issues, what can happen to mutual funds in a bear market, and exactly what the dangers are of selling short. Of critical importance is Rothchild's overview of the alternatives to stocks, including gold, bonds, and money market funds, as well as tips on what stocks to buy when the market starts to turn bullish again. For historical perspective, The Bear Book also includes a unique and eye-opening account of the Crash of '29 and its survivors. Profiles of prominent bearish investors - Roy Neuberger and Philip Carret, among them - contain illuminating long-term perspectives on the ups and downs of the stock market over the past fifty to seventy-five years.

"Mr. Rothchild finds some compelling evidence that a bear might be lurking in the woods. (He) addresses the subject with candor."-The Wall Street Journal

"THE BEAR BOOK would be fascinating just because Rothchild is an entertaining writer who has gathered such a wide variety of historical facts, anecdotes, theories and current opinions to enlighten the reader about market declines."-Chicago Sun-Times

"A timely wake-up call...contains fascinating stories about history's greatest financial busts as well as guidance on how to cope with the next one."-Miami Herald
