It’s surprising to consider, but according to Intermarket Analysis, John Murphy’s latest book, his distinguished
career in the markets began nearly four decades ago. While many traders active today had yet to enter the material plane, he was already a stock analyst on Wall
Street. In the 1970s he began working in the commodities markets, which were in the process of a rapid evolution from a concentration on hard assets such as corn and sugar to include more sophisticated
financial instruments such as contracts on currencies and Treasury bonds. This was followed by the introduction of stock index futures in the early 1980s. Commodities included the four major asset classes of stocks, bonds, commodities, and currencies.
