Yes, You Can Time the Market!  by Ben Stein & Phil DeMuth
Though the common wisdom on Wall Street says market timing doesn't work, the authors sifted through a hundred years of stock market data and discovered that fundamental valuation metrics clearly show when the market is over- or under-priced. In fact, timing the market is just a matter of patience -- something Wall Street doesn't have. You'll find no gimmicks or get-rich-quick schemes here, just the information you need to tell a good investing climate from a bad one. Timing the market is safer and more profitable than keeping your money in stocks all the time. In fact, an investor using Stein and DeMuth's system would have bought stocks in fifteen out of fifteen of the best investing years for long-term investors since 1926, while staying out of the market during the worst fifteen years. Market timing not only offers superior returns over the long run, but it can also protect you from short-term catastrophe.

Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude  by Mark Douglas

Conflicts, contradictions and paradoxes in thinking can spell disaster for even a highly motivated, astute and well grounded trader. Mark Douglas, a trader, personal trading coach, and industry consultant since 1982, sends the message that "thinking strategy" will profoundly influence a trader's success rate. Douglas addresses five very specific issues to give traders the insight and understanding about themselves that will make them consistent winners in the market. Above all, he shows you that the problem is not with the system that you're trading, but the problem lies within yourself, and your own thoughts and beliefs about how the market operates, and what your role is in the marketplace.

Rule the Freakin' Markets: How to Profit in Any Market, Bull or Bear  by Michael Parness
"I'm not mechanical, and I'm not good at figuring out technical stuff like computers or plumbing or chain saws, but I can figure out how things measure up in terms of probability. And probability is what trading is all about," says Parness, known to millions of insomniacs through his middle-of-the-night infomercials. A few too many ka-chingos  and wowsas  mar an otherwise informed writing style, but nevertheless the book offers some excellent insight into how the market actually works, and how one can make money using that insight. Those looking for a serious study of economic trends and forecasts may want to look elsewhere, but readers interested in a breezy, anecdotal read about market bubbles and bursts will be entertained and more than likely enlightened.

The Right Stock at the Right Time: Prospering in the Coming Good Years  by Larry Williams
Why is October an integral month for predicting market bottoms? Why do ideal buy opportunities occur in years ending in "2" or "3"? How do you tell when stocks are undervalued? The answers to questions like these can help you recognize the stock market's historical patterns -- and ultimately profit from them. In this indispensable, one-of-a-kind guide, forty-year industry veteran and top technical analyst Larry Williams throws down the gauntlet at the feet of the bear market pundits. Rejecting their pessimism-clouded view of the market, Williams reveals how you can prosper from knowing the fundamentals that have moved stocks in the past and will continue to move them in the future. Relying on exhaustive research (which includes stock market prices as far back as 1854), the author demonstrates that rallies are common to all market periods, and with these historical precedents as guideposts, he explains how you can zero in on market bottoms and ride the inevitable upswings that follow.
