Make Money, Don’t Lose Money: The Defensive Investor on Thriving and Surviving Through Bull and Bear Markets

By Robert Katz


This author looks to show off his prowess in terms of the longevity of trading and how a long-term approach can really pay off, when taking into account the general volatility of markets and just how much they can change. With an eye for keeping on the defensive at all times, this book shows an approach that relies on risking very little in order to pay off in the long run.


Trying to keep all of the investments together during a market crash can sound daunting, but it could be even worse if there were no reference from which to try and prevent it.

This is where the author Robert Katz felt he spotted a gap in the market – a way to show his readers how valuable the low-risk strategy can be in many cases. He aims to show off an approach that can wither any market storm based on the suggestion that having money work for the investor rather than against it should work out more often than not.

Katz runs a website which discusses and details all of the ways to respond to a market that does not easily lend itself well to making profit out of all of the trades. The idea of learning how to do well when the market swings fully towards either a bearish or bullish fashion is nothing new, but the detail here will serve well for those looking how to learn to develop a range of strategies especially when the market is so inconsistent at the moment.

For new investors and those more used to the riskier strategies available, this book will offer a new and interesting way to think about how to weather some of the financial storms and still leave with investments intact.
