Portfolio Investment Management Strategy- Put More Smart Cash In Your Future / Portfolio / Learning to Invest

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market is a dynamic place where investors can consistently make reasonable returns on their capital if they comply with the basic principles of the endeavor and if they don't measure their progress too frequently against irrelevant indices.

The income securities market is most often a less dynamic place where investors can consistently make reasonable returns on their capital if they understand the basic principles of the endeavor and if they focus steadfastly on the income produced by their holdings.

US Capital Markets Portfolio Composition / Portfolio / Investing

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow has the US structured itself in terms of equities and debt instruments, and how large is each component?

The financial news streams us a constant supply of fragmentary numbers about this or that troubled asset category or rescue package. Since they are all in hundreds of billions or even a few trillions of Dollars, it's hard to get a handle on the relative significance of the numbers.

Bond Market Portfolio Building Strategies / Portfolio / US Bonds

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBonds are an important part of many portfolios, particularly for those investors in mid to late states of economic life, or for endowments or pensions.

Bonds are important for capital preservation and portfolio volatility moderation.  In some cases, for experienced traders, they can also be a source of capital gains, but they are normally used for conservative purposes.

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.

Risk Management and Portfolio Optimization / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: Peter_Johansson

Stock analysis based on technical analysis or fundamental analysis is getting a lot of attention and often form the the basis for investment decisions. 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.

Quarterly Window Dressing- A Recurrent Wall Street Scam / Portfolio / Market Manipulation

By: Steve_Selengut

"The time has come the walrus said, to talk of many things": Of corrections--portfolios--- and window dressing--- of market cycles--- wizards--- and reality.

Quarterly portfolio window dressing is one of many immortal Jaberwock-like creatures that roam the granite canyons of the Manhattan triangle, sending inappropriate signals to unwary investors and media spokespersons.  Many of you, like the unsuspecting young oysters in the Lewis Carroll classic, are responding to the daily news nonsense with fear instead of embracing the new opportunities that are surely right there, cloaked, just beyond your short-term vision field.

The release of the U.S. Federal Reserve's minutes from the April 29 and 30 meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) included several “pronouncements,” none of which you're hearing from the mainstream press and all of which we here at Money Morning told you were coming months ago.

Portfolio Allocation to Precious Metals- How to Invest $100,000 / Portfolio / Resources Investing

By: Dudley_Baker

For the last two days, I attended and participated in the Hard Assets Investment Conference in New York City which was well attended with many great speakers and companies. I always encourage investors to attend these conferences to get a real ‘hands on feel', after all, it is your money. Meet the management, ask questions and visit newsletter writers. I would have to say, the consensus was that investors should not expect gold and silver prices to rise for perhaps the next several months and that the markets are still very vulnerable to a decline in gold into the upper 700's. That said, prices are consolidating within the long-term bull market and investors need to exercise patience and continue to seek out excellent companies and deploy their investment dollars as opportunities present themselves.

Three Strategies to Protect Your Investment Portfolio From Falling Corporate Profits / Portfolio / Corporate Earnings

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTony Sagami writes: If 2008 has been tough on your portfolio, there is no shortage of blame to go around: $90 oil, the subprime mortgage crisis, the collapsing dollar, and falling real estate prices.

But in my opinion, the underlying cause of U.S. stock market woes is much simpler: Rapidly disappearing corporate profits.

Stock and Bond Market Trading Powers Modern Portfolio Asset Allocation / Portfolio / Learn to Trade

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor most individual investors, trading is approached in a totally speculative manner. Stock trading, in its more popular forms (Day Trading, Swing Trading, etc.) includes none of the elements that a conservative investment strategy would contain: little if any attention is given to the Quality of the equities selected; Diversification is determined by chance alone; no attempt is made to develop an increasing and dependable stream of Income. But stock trading by individual investors doesn't deserve quite as bad a "rep" as it has earned. After all, its very foundation is profit taking, probably the most important and most often neglected of the activities required for successful investment management. Unfortunately for most equity traders, loss taking is a more common occurrence.

US Stock Markets Skating on Thin Ice! Four Steps to Protect your Portfolio / Portfolio / Global Stock Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

I'm starting to see a lot of "thin ice" signs here in my home state of Montana. That's because the temperature is dropping, but it's not yet cold enough for thick ice to form on our bodies of water.

I'm seeing a lot of warning signs popping up in the financial markets, too. Oil is flirting with $100 a barrel. The credit crunch is deepening. Corporate earnings are disappointing. The U.S. dollar is making new all-time lows.

Wealthbuilder Monthly Stock Market Portfolio Investment Note / Portfolio / Investing

By: Christopher_Quigley

Overview:

Overall markets continue to work higher, despite the existence of Hindenburg Omen clusters. The nature of this indicator shows that the internal breadth of the Market is weak. In the event that the current rally stalls there could be significant technical breakdown.

The risk in the market is high and ideally investors should wait until a pullback support level has been tested before adding significantly to new positions.

Disaster in the US Dollar! Profit bonanza in ETFs! / Portfolio / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: The U.S. dollar has just been slammed for the fifth week in a row, and no one in Washington is lifting a finger to support it.

The dollar has plunged to a 26-year low against the pound … a 30-year low against the Canadian dollar … and an all-time low against the euro!

The dollar is falling against the Brazilian real, the Mexican peso and even the currencies of smaller, previously impoverished countries.

Portfolio Insurance - The Same Old Short Comings / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: Michael_J_Panzner

On the face of it, it seemed like a great idea: an insurance policy for investment portfolios. No wonder it was popular with the Wall Street crowd. Unfortunately, it was not until the strategy was put to the test in the fall of 1987 that its many shortcomings came to light. By then, of course, it was too late.

“Portfolio insurance” was first developed more than two decades ago in an attempt to limit the damage caused by significant share-price declines. Previously, fund managers found it hard to adjust quickly to sudden market turbulence, mainly because of practical issues associated with rebalancing large portfolios at a time when technological solutions were limited and communications networks sluggish.

US Stock and Investment Portfolio - Update 11th March 2007 / Portfolio / Investing

By: Robert_Moore

The markets seem to be undecided. I wish there would be a good old-fashioned correction so I would feel comfortable spending some money.

Gold: Last Monday would have been a good time to pick up some gold. I didn't get my order in so I'm hoping to see a little bit more downside so I can buy at a slightly better price.

I am bullish on gold so I always buy when the price gets close to the 180-day Moving Average and I back up the truck and load it when the "Accum" trigger is hit, now at -.37. If you are building your portfolio, now would be a good time to buy some gold.

US Stock and Investment Portfolio - Update 5th March 2007 / Portfolio / Investing

By: Robert_Moore

I'm late with my post since I was at a remote, isolated Costa Rican jungle location on vacation last week. What a surprise it was to pick up a copy of the jungle news after a week of isolation and read that CNBC was being sold to the Chinese National Broadcasting Company, hell, they don't even need to change the call letters! It's really interesting to get away while the markets melt down.

OK, I lied. Staying at the Four Seasons Resort Peninsula Papagayo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica is living in the lap of luxury. I saw the market melt down between golf, swimming, good food, drinks, sailing, reading, windsurfing and monkey watching. Too awesome to describe here. What was interesting, however, was that the resort seemed to empty out on Tuesday. Not sure why but I'm speculating that a number of the guests were in some way intimately tied to the markets...."Dear, I believe we may need to cut this vacation short as I've got to get back to New York/London to check our hedge fund...We're short a few Yen/Swissies and long mortgages and stocks". Gulp.
