Leon S. Robertson, Ph.D. -- Latest Book:

The stock market is a source of great danger and great opportunity. The danger lurks in myths and untested trading methods in newsletters books and websites by people who don't know how to test their theories. In his latest book, STOCK MARKET SCIENCE vs. MYTH, Dr. Leon S. Robertson submits many popular stock-trading technical analysis and other systems to scientific tests that find they are unreliable. The tales of their effectiveness are myths. The book reveals new, scientifically tested, stock trading systems that more than double investmentreturns compared to buying and holding certain equities. To illustrate the effectiveness of these and the mythical trading systems, the thirty stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), twenty-six older exchange traded funds (ETFs) that reflect prices of various U.S. and foreign market indices, and the ten most popular mutual funds are used as examples. Readers of the book learn how to evaluate trading systems and test their own ideas based on scientific methods.

A suite of computer programs that can be used to test stocks not discussed in the book or as templates to develop readers own systems can be downloaded here. Before attempting the download, read Chapter 12 of the book to obtain instructions for downloading and using the programs.
