If you know what to do, active investing can yield much better returns than "buy-and-hold" investing. But conventional approaches to active investing can be highly complex and time-consuming. Finally, there's a proven, easy-to-use approach to active investing: one that's simple enough for novices, quick enough for anyone, requires no background in math or finance -- and works! The authors start with specific recommendations for mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), bond funds, and international funds. Next, you'll learn how to quickly and easily evaluate the performance of each category every three months, and choose the top performers, continually optimizing your performance. Discover how to achieve better capital growth while reducing risk; profit from new investment opportunities at home and abroad; utilize innovative vehicles such as ETFs; and protect your assets even in difficult, volatile markets. The Appels identify objective, automatic "triggers" that tell you when and where to invest and when and where to pull out. Using their techniques, specific buy/sell decision-making becomes virtually automatic, while fully reflecting rock-solid principles drawn from long-term market observations and proven historical performance. The book contains comprehensive introductory material for the inexperienced investor that explains clearly the need for more active strategies and basic motivation for the categories and specific investment choices.
