The buy-and-hold (B&H) strategy along with dollar-cost averaging has served millions of investors very well for a long time. The new-found knowledge set forth in this book provides specific answers regarding when to be invested in the S&P 500 and when not to be invested in that Index. This knowledge has the potential to help individual investors grow and protect (G&P) their wealth with “sleep well” confidence. The knowledge also will broaden the perspectives of financial advisers, professional money managers, market strategists, market technicians, financial journalists and the academic community. Regardless of the perspective, Louis Pasteur’s keen observation applies today: “Chance favors the prepared mind.” May both the B&H strategy and the G&P strategy help illuminate your financial path. God bless you!
