Praise for Commodity Strategies
"I have read many books on Point & Figure charting, but this is the first in its category on the application of the time–tested methodology of Point & Figure charting, in particular, the concept of ′relative strength,′ to pick outperforming commodities as well as to achieve diversification of non–correlated assets. If you are looking for a profitable and comprehensive methodology to making money from the commodity and currency markets and ETFs, look no further you have found it. This book has it all."
Fred Tam, MPhil, CFTe, MSTA, lecturer in technical analysis at
University Malaya and Open University Malaysia
"Tom Dorsey is a market wizard who continues to stimulate the investor′s mind. Commodity Strategies is powerful from start to finish with charts and many interesting insights. It′s a clear guide for anyone looking to expand their investment horizon."
Joseph Barrato, EVP of Investment Strategies, Arrow Funds
"This book and Dorsey′s commodity strategies provide a much–needed, disciplined, and risk–managed framework for when and how to incorporate commodities into a portfolio. His investment methodologies along with the evolution of ETFs into alternative asset classes like commodities and currencies are a match made in heaven."
H. Bruce Bond, President and CEO, PowerShares Capital Management
