In his latest book, Investing with the Trend, Greg draws on his years of experience to offer a process for analyzing the present state of the marketplace in order to maximize investment possibilities. The book presents compelling evidence that debunks many of the commonly held investing myths that typically cause investors to fail over time. Greg explains why all too often well-accepted theories on finance, economics, and the market, in general, can keep investors from reaching their financial goals. The book provides evidence that markets do trend and demonstrates how to build a rules-based trend-following model. Click here to read reviews on Amazon.
