So far it may seem unlikely: if it were that simple we would all know when to buy and sell. However, the author then applies his theory to the Dow Jones index of US shares for successive periods going back to 1929. Broadly he demonstrates that his theory has merit.
So can we apply it to today and the next few years? Mr Balenthiran says we are in a 17.6 year secular bear cycle ending in 2018. He predicts that in 2013 there will be a fall in prices, while from 2018 we shall begin in a long (17.6 year) summer of rising prices. This is an oversimplification, but I would not bet against him.
A short book, but worth reading by the intelligent investor.
Nonetheless this is an very interesting book. The "Balenthiran Cycle" charts are incredible and I recommend that people familiarise themselves with the cycle and keep it in mind, but not rely on it exclusively.
Believe a dip is not in 2013 but in 2015.
