Cycles, Trends & Forecasts

Imagine you could see — with clarity — what will happen in the Australian housing, stock, and commodity markets over the next few years…

You’d know exactly the right time to buy a house, apartment, or investment property…you’d know the ideal time to profit from a stock market sell-off…and you’d have the confidence to invest in assets when most people are running scared.

That’s what Cycles, Trends & Forecasts aims to provide based on the power of understanding the 18.6-year real estate cycle.

Many studies, including some that go back to the 1600s, have shown that land and property cycles follow a distinct, reoccurring pattern:

Of around 14 years of rising land values prior to a significant downturn that can last up to 4 years.

In Cycles, Trends & Forecasts, Australian economist and cycle expert Catherine Cashmore helps you make sense of the 18.6-year cycle and, together with stock market expert Callum Newman, makes recommendations to invest accordingly.

Catherine has been in the Australian real estate business for more than 14 years as a developer, consultant, buyer’s advocate and seller’s agent.

In that time, she has helped scores of people build wealth through property…and others make the biggest and most important investment of their lives.

She puts her success down to a knowledge of the 18-year real estate cycle. Understanding how it turns, says Catherine, can dramatically improve the quality of your financial decisions.

Once you gain this understanding, seemingly random incidents in the news will start to make sense. You’ll see how events that cause markets to move in such dramatic ways can be explained…and foreseen.

Where Catherine uses her knowledge of the cycle to focus on the property market, Co-Editor Callum uses it to recommend ways to take advantage via the stock market.

Together, each month they give you an idea of what’s ahead, giving you the opportunity to make adjustments to your investment plans ahead of time.
