The Cult of the Bear - Another Missed Bull Market / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Clif_Droke

A gradual procession of super bears has been quietly admitting they've been wrong in their bearish assessment of the stock market. As the major stock market indices continue to push to higher highs and as market internals continue to reflect a stellar market condition, even the most stubborn of bearish traders and market commentators have been forced to reconsider their positions. Slowly, and with little fanfare, they've been covering short positions.

How to Set Stop Losses to Lock in Profits / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Hans_Wagner

I have had several questions regarding how I set stops and why sometimes I use a trailing percent stop and other times I use a specific price. I hope to help clarify my approach with this Point of Interest. The trailing stop is an excellent method to lock in profits or protect from greater losses. By placing a stop order below the current price it limits your loss to a predetermined amount. When the bid price hits the stop price your position is sold and you exit your position.

Dow Theory - How the Transports Confirms the Dow Jones Breakouts / InvestorEducation / Cycles Analysis

By: Tim_Wood

In light of the recent rally in the Transports I thought that it would be appropriate to discuss the Dow theory and this recent move by the Transports. According to Dow theory the confirmation of a trend occurs when both averages better their previous Secondary high or low point, depending on whether or not the trend is up or down. Without going into exactly how you define a Secondary high or low point let me just say that the May 2006 highs marked the last Secondary high in both averages.

Davos - The Brave New World Economy: A Rejoinder to Mohamed El-Erian / InvestorEducation / Analysis & Strategy

By: Douglas_V_Gnazzo

Recently, the shakers and the movers of the world met in Davos, Switzerland for their yearly meeting. It is here that the world's elite discuss the state of the world, the future course of world affairs they wish to see manifest as destiny, and the wherewithal to make it all happen.

One of the tools the elite have always used to forge the works wrought from the anvil and the hammer is the intelligentsia - the counsels of Aries. This work speaks to those who listen to the Ram, and have occasion to frequent the House of Mars. It would be wise to heed the words:

New Technical Indicator that Times Bull Market Peaks in Gold and Silver / InvestorEducation / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Roland_Watson

There is one question above all others that is on the minds of gold and silver investors. It can be expressed in two ways.

The first is "At what price will the gold and silver bull market end?"

The second is similar "At what date will the gold and silver bull market end?"

The chief end of both questions is the same, getting out with maximum profits for the holder of gold and silver be it in bullion, ETF or mining stock form.

Bubbles and Crowd Madness - Internet Bubble 2.0 - 2007 compared with 2000 / InvestorEducation / Analysis & Strategy

By: Paul_Lamont

During the early 1690s, England experienced a 'Financial Revolution.' It was described by financial historian Edward Chancellor as "a wave of exciting new technology companies coming to market, of rising share prices and record stock turnover, of new fangled financial derivatives, of credit wildly extended, of stock market rumours and sharp practices, and of naïve investors rushing to buy shares."

Sound Familiar? Shortly after in 1695, the English stock market peaked and subsequently crashed. Simultaneously it was recorded that "women's fashionable headdresses which reached a height of 7 feet" during the mania became shorter and more somber. While this may seem a ridiculous coincidence, extravagance in culture and fashion historically coincides with the peak of a mania.

Investment Gems - Avoid these three investing mistakes / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

Most of the time I tell you what I think you should be doing when it comes to your investments. But today, I want to tell you about three things that you shouldn't do.

I've had a lot of investing victories over the years, but I'm far from perfect. So I want to revisit three lessons that I learned the hard way. It's not that I like eating humble pie … I just want to give you an opportunity to learn from my past mistakes.

How To Invest in Canadian Stocks & Warrants / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Dudley_Baker

Frequently I read comments from other analysts regarding the difficulties of trading, i.e. buying, the Canadian mining stocks. They usually suggest investors seek out a broker that specializes in these stocks and while that is not bad advice, it is not necessary to do so.

Allow me to first provide some insight on the mining sector and in particular the investment conferences being held frequently in both Canada and the United States .

Another Look at Dow Theory and Cycles / InvestorEducation / Cycles Analysis

By: Tim_Wood

I continue to receive e-mails asking about the 4-year cycle and the ongoing Dow theory non-confirmation. In order to address this topic I have decided that it would be best to simply use a piece that I wrote before.

I have virtually every scrap of material written by Charles H. Dow, William Peter Hamilton and Robert Rhea and I want to confirm that cycles are definitely not a part of the Dow theory. I'll also add that head and shoulder formations, rising wedges, symmetric triangles and other technical patterns are not a part of the Dow theory. The McClellan oscillator, stochastics, RSI nor any other oscillator, for that matter, is a part of the Dow theory. Nor is gold, the dollar, bonds or individual stock analysis a part of the Dow theory.

Long term Economic and Stock Market Cycles - The only cycles that really matter / InvestorEducation / Cycles Analysis

By: Clif_Droke

Theories of periodicity (cycles) in the stock market are as intriguing as they are controversial.  The subject of equity market cycles has been discussed at length over the past 60 years with precious little in the way of agreement among cyclists as to what exactly constitutes a cycle, let alone which cycles are key.

Unfortunately, one of the major attempts at advancing the understanding of cycle theory, namely the Foundation for the Study of Cycles, was marked by internecine strife and fell by the wayside in the mid-1990s despite the pioneering work of its founder, Edward Dewey.  In recent years, much credit must be given to Samuel “Bud” Kress for discovering the remarkable rhythms that define the series of yearly cycles that compose the K-wave long-term series.  The K-wave has been traditionally defined as a 60-year rhythm as formulated by the Russian economist Nikolai Kondratiev.

Four Ways Companies mislead Investors in earnings reporting using Intel as an example / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

Intel recently reported its fourth-quarter results. The headlines celebrated the fact that the semiconductor company delivered $0.26 a share in profits, beating the Wall Street consensus estimate by a penny. Everyone seems impressed … except me. In fact, all I see is a company whose business is sinking fast, and a stock that's going to get hammered.

So today I want to use Intel as an example of how companies use different tactics to convince investors that everything is better than it really is. Think about these the next time you're about to buy a stock …

History's Hidden Engine - Documentary that shows how Stock Market Trends influence societies moods / InvestorEducation / Analysis & Strategy

By: Sarah_Jones

History's Hidden Engine explores society's moods and how shifts in overall mood affect areas as disparate as fashion, movies, politics, the economy and the tendency to make war. Moore says he was inspired to create the movie by "Popular Culture and the Stock Market," a report by financial analyst Robert Prechter. Moore quickly realized that "the ideas behind this field are too new and complex to explore in every aspect in a single documentary." Nonetheless, he liked the challenge of creating a film that includes the views of an increasing number of experts who are looking into the emerging theory called socionomics.

High dividend stocks Strategy, consistency and dividend cover in United Utilities / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Shahla_Walayat

A portfolio of high dividend yielding stocks has consistently shown itself to outperform the broader market in the long-run and without the same degree of volatility associated with growth stocks. The strategy involves finding consistently high yielding stocks which provide an income of 5% or more on top of capital appreciation, this dividend is also likely to rise so as to maintain the yield on any gain in the share price, so as to maintain the Yield %.

The dividend yield is simply the total annual dividend divided by the current share price, which equals the dividend yield.

Taking a popular high yielding stock, United Utilities as an example - United Utilities is a British company that is listed both on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Its principal activities are managing and operating the regulated electricity distribution, water and wastewater networks in north west of England.
