After many years as a successful Wall Street insider, Doug Roberts discovered something that would forever change the way he looked at investing. During his time on "the Street," he began to notice that small and mid-sized companies prospered when the Federal Reserve Bank made it easier for them to borrow money. Conversely, he saw that those same companies struggled when the Fed made it more difficult to borrow. However, large companies didn't seem to have these problems and continued to expand all the time.
Through years of research and analysis, Roberts found that there's a direct correlation between stock market performance and the actions of the Federal Reserve Bank. He went on to prove his theory by testing it back to the Crash of 1929. In watching how the Fed influenced the availability of money and creditand simply shifting funds between large and small stocks as little as one to two times per yearRoberts was able to outperform the S&P 500 as well as the vast majority of mutual funds. He continued to develop a system based on these findings, adding a few more measures to enhance its performance, and his Follow the Fed® strategy was born.
Now, in Follow the Fed to Investment Success, Roberts skillfully outlines this proven approach, takes you step by step through implementing his strategy, and reveals how easy it can be to create true wealth in today's market. Roberts also offers brief, but fascinating insights into the creation of the Federal Reserve and how it works.
