"Jack Schannep is simply the most accurate market timer I have ever known. I have read his commentaries religiously since 2002 and he has been right every step of the way. He perfectly called the market bottom in October 2002 and never wavered from his bullish stance until late in 2007... and again, he was 100% right to call an end to the five year bull run.  Jack's application of technical analysis in defining the primary trend of the market has been spot on."

Your contribution to this book was most important and most appreciated. I can't tell you what a problem I was having bringing Dow Theory performance up to date before I found TheDowTheory.com.  Gratefully, my most cordial thanks.

"Schannep's record (for the record) is looking better and better. Over the year to date, TheDowTheory.com is up 1.9% by Hulbert Financial Digest count, vs. negative 18.6% for the dividend-reinvested Dow Jones Wilshire 5000. This makes it one of only 13 letters out of some 180 followed by HDF to be in the black this year."

"in the hands of at least one of the advisers whose performance I regularly monitor, it (the Dow Theory) is one of the best performing market timing systems of the last decade". "I turn first to Jack Schannep editor of TheDowTheory.com and the Schannep Timing Indicator, whose interpretation of the Dow theory has been the most successful in recent years among the three investment services I monitor who base their market timing on the Dow Theory"."Schannep's interpretation of the Dow Theory did a better job of navigating the 2007-2009 bear market and subsequent bull market than any of the nearly 200 other stock market timing strategies monitored by the Hulbert Financial Digest."
Mark Hulbert
Editor, Hulbert Fin'l Digest

"(Jack Schannep is) the most successful Dow theorist of our age... Not only has he got a first-rate record of market calls, but his interpretation seems more faithful to what I understand as being the teachings of the theory's founding fathers".
