Jacket Text

The Almanac is an extremely valuable and unique reference work providing traders and investors with the strategies, methods and data to tackle the markets throughout the year. It is the one essential book for the serious trader or investor.

The Almanac consists of four main sections:

1. Calendar
The Calendar provides 12 two-page summary articles of the main features of each of the months of the year. This includes the historic average performance, the sectors and shares that tend to be strong or weak in the month, the month’s major anomalies and seasonality patterns, the significant dates coming up, and a chart of the average daily performance throughout the month.

2. Strategies
This section describes the major anomalies and seasonality effects in the UK market and how they can be exploited.

3. Analysis
In-depth analysis of the characteristics of the UK and international markets, to help give traders and investors an edge in the markets they are active in.

4. Reference
The Reference section includes background information about UK and international stock indices. Topics covered include basic facts about the market, trade codes, a timetable of the trading day, a timetable of company results announcements, and a look at the original constituents of the FT 30 of 1935 and the FTSE 100 of 1984.

Professional Reviews

"The bible of market anomalies" The Telegraph

"An annual publication which is a must-read for all fans of stock market investing - it combines a mixture of some trivial but amusing anecdotes and facts about the stock market with some more interesting analysis of trends that recur each year and other kinds of anomalies… things that, theoretically at least, you can make some money out of if you are aware of them." Jonathan Davis
