Mastering the Market Cycle: Getting the Odds on Your Side by Howard Marks

Mastering the Market Cycle (2018) tackles a subject that’s often misunderstood, ignored or both: financial cycles. It not only explains what cycles are, how they tend to act and what influences them, but how best to position yourself within them to deal with risk and the current market environment. Along the way, it discusses multiple recent financial cycles, teasing out the lessons that can be learned from each.

  • Aspiring investors wondering how to choose their assets
  • People who’ve already made investments
  • Investors trying to gain a competitive edge

Howard Marks is an American investor, a writer and a cofounder of Oaktree Capital Management, a Los Angeles-based asset-management firm that oversees more than $122 billion in assets.
