The second edition adds 188 new pages (480 pages total) seeking to expand Prechter’s deflationary argument through the stock market’s manic climb to the 2007 peak and subsequent crash.

Prechter

I bought Prechter's book when it first came out. His timing is terrible. Always has been - just look him up on the internet. Nadeem Walayat's timing is brilliant. This year alone his performance has been brilliant, and his predictions amazing.

Go with Nadeem, not Prechter.

Forecasting

Thanks for the Kind words.

In my opinion to produce accurate forecasts, you cannot invest too much in them both in terms of money and psychological, else it will skew the outcome.

That and knowing the fact that ANY forecasting skill is NOT necessary to trade, which means the focus has to be on reacting to price triggers regardless of what a forecast / ones best educated guess says.
