[amazonsearch]Anatomy of the Bear: Lessons from Wall Street's four great bottoms[/amazonsearch]

 

I am still in the process of reading this book but thought I'd share it. It's a summary of 4 bear markets in the 20th century and when they "turned". (August 1921, July 1932, June 1949, and August 1982)

 

The author studies the sentiment during those times, and breaks down each occurence. (Leadup, The Fed, Stock Market, The Bond Market, price stability, the bottom, etc.)

 

He cites and includes WSJ clippings about the market during these times frequently, and I find these to be helpful to see the actual sentiment then. Hopefully will give perspective next time a bear market strikes.

The whole book is summarized in the last few pages.

This reminds me of a recent Economist feature:

 

"The slumps that shaped modern finance: Finance is not merely prone to crises, it is shaped by them. Five historical crises show how aspects of today’s financial system originated—and offer lessons for today’s regulators"

Usually, I don't really give this stuff a second thought. However, even Buffett talks along these 17 year cycle lines.
