In Stock Market Cycles, Jeff Hirsch, Editor of the venerable Stock Trader's Almanac, reveals how to interpret stock market history to forecast future movements. He identifies major cycles, including: war and peace; secular bull and bear markets; presidential term cycles; and shorter-term seasonal cycles.
Given the confluence of cycles, Hirsch forecasts that the Dow Jones average will likely drop below 10,000 through late 2014. After a major rally and then another decline, he believes a secular bull market will emerge around 2018, which could drive the market up five-fold by 2025. Several factors will converge to create this stock market boom later in the decade. While this forecast may seem extreme, Hirsch shows that it is consistent with past stock market behavior following World War II and the Vietnam War. Hirsch also discusses shorter term cycles, including the "Best Six Months Strategy," which has massively outperformed the overall market for many years as well as what to expect each year of the new presidential term.
