A research-based portfolio strategy that uses Fed signals to forecast security market performance

It’s often said that the chairman of the Fed is the second most powerful person in the world, next only to the president of the United States. Some say the chairman is even more powerful. When Ben Bernanke publicly stated on September 8, 2013, the Fed’s intent to continue its policy of quantitative easing, global markets instantly reversed direction from a worrying downward spiral to an exuberant upward surge. Even POTUS can’t do that.

The authors of Invest with the Fed take the simple position that correct interpretation of Federal Reserve policy actions leads to better investing decisions. To this end, they present strategies that will help you design a portfolio that takes Fed policy into account.

The result of three decades of research, Invest with the Fed reveals how the nation’s bank routinely signals important clues about its future policy–and it explains how you can use these clues to enhance your portfolio performance.

Learn all there is to know about the implications that Fed policy changes have for:

  • Value and growth investing
  • Behavioral and EMT approaches
  • Alternative assets
  • Sector rotation
  • International stocks
  • Hedge funds
  • Fixed income securities

If Warren Buffett revealed a nugget of information about one of his future investments, you would likely act upon it. So why wouldn’t you act upon information revealed by the institution that controls the U.S. financial markets?

This is the book you need to adjust your investing strategy to take into account advice from the most in fluential financial institution in the world–the U.S. Federal Reserve.

    a good book, but perhaps not for the intended reasons a good book, but perhaps not for the intended reasons…i really enjoyed this book. it is full of interesting data. i think someone wanting to learn more about investments and academic studies would learn a huge amount from this book.but i have a number of questions/concerns:1) would anyone remotely suggest the fed has been anything but expansionary the last 5 years? it’s news to me that they raised the discount rate to 0.75% in 2010 and haven’t lowered it…

    A Welcomed Addition to Portfolio Managment Literature First, the writing style is easy to read and it flows well. Second, it is very obvious to me that Bob Johnson and his colleagues did an amazing amount of research to back up various statements and themes with facts and examples. Third, all of the suggestions and points are backed up with great logic that make a lot of sense to me. Fourth, the book should have multiple audiences. I think every portfolio manager would need it as a first read and then as a reference book on his or her shelf…
