By: Richard_Shaw

Short-term data is easy to access.  Long-term data is somewhat more difficult for many investors to find.  We’ll leave the current and forward conditions to you in this article, but this data may be helpful with respect to history.

Do You Really Have a Diversified Portfolio? / Portfolio / Learning to Invest

By: Andrew_Abraham

I have heard so many times when speaking to investors that they have a diversified portfolio. I ask further and I have been told that they maintain a diversified portfolio of stocks consisting of both domestic and international companies.

Build Your Stocks Portfolio With Different ETF Weightings / Portfolio / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Ron_Rowland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou probably know that exchange traded funds (ETFs) are usually based on an index. In some cases the indexes are broad, like the S&P 500.

Investment Portfolio Diversification & Risk / Portfolio / Learning to Invest

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe cliché’s are plentiful and well known. Putting all of one’s eggs in a single basket is probably the most popular example. One of the biggest manifestations is when an investor looks at their portfolio and realizes that it is grossly underperforming a particular market index or that the same portfolio has performed much worse than a given benchmark. Even if you’ve done everything right and selected the right themes, industries, and firms, if you get the portfolio mix wrong, you can still have problems. This is one of headaches that mutual funds are generally supposed to relieve investors of, but for a litany of reasons, it doesn’t seem to always work out that way. In truth, every individual portfolio is a mutual fund of sorts, and so the same rules apply.

Boost Your Portfolio by Investing in Emerging Markets / Portfolio / Emerging Markets

By: Uncommon_Wisdom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTony Sagami writes: The Dow Jones Industrial Average suffered a 3.5 percent loss last week. One of the main culprits was a report from the Department of Commerce that retail sales dropped by 0.4 percent in April.

That was on the heels of a 1.3 percent drop in March. And back-to-back quarterly declines in the last half of 2008.

Portfolio Allocation Technical Analysis Tables Across 52 ETFs / Portfolio / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Richard_Shaw

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleComparing the charts for multiple funds can be challenging.  Visual memory is fleeting, and the sheer information complexity of chart patterns poses the problem of what and how to compare on the charts.

To reduce the extent of those problems, we collect 15 data points from each chart and post them in a table, then color code them red or green to aid in scanning the table.  By that method we can compare dozens of charts in a standardized way that is completely beyond our visual memory capabilities.

Income in a Zero Interest Rate World / Portfolio / Investing 2009

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne look at the yields on US Treasuries tells a good part of the story. Listening to Fed Chief Ben Bernanke gives us the rest: it is going to be very hard making any kind of money in many traditional fixed income instruments using the conventional method of clipping bond coupons. Certificates of Deposit won't be much better moving forward. It would seem as though we are destined for either zero or near zero short-term interest rates for at least the next year.

How to Protect Your Portfolio from Maydoff Style Ponzi Fraud Scams / Portfolio / Scams

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Bernard Madoff, former chairman of the NASDAQ Stock Market Inc. ( NDAQ ), was turned into the authorities by his sons last Thursday after his hedge fund, Bernard L. Madoff Securities LLC , was declared an insolvent “giant Ponzi scheme,” with estimated losses of $50 billion.

Precious Metals Portfolio Configuration Critical at this Point  / Portfolio / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust a few quick words this morning accompanied by a smattering of charts to keep you updated at where we are with the present correction in precious metals. In a nutshell, any further weakness in precious metals shares will increase the likelihood of one more Minor Degree wave lower being necessary before the larger correction is compete. As mentioned a week ago, the small speculators (see yellow bars ) have been squeezed out of the crude oil market, which is bearish. And although the Gold / Crude Oil Ratio's turn higher should prove to be a big plus for gold at some point, the initial reaction by orthodox traders will be to think deflation, and sell gold in response.

Many private investors combine perhaps 5-10 assets into a portfolio and let their intuition guide the allocate between the assets. How this allocation could be done in an optimal way, analytically, receives little attention in financial newspapers and marketing from financial institutes although it has a great significance for expected returns and portfolio risk.
