STOCKS BEAR MAKRETS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PAINFUL! / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The bottom line is that bear markets are supposed to be PAINFUL! And I can tell many investors feel that PAIN from the comments as they post the latest price of say Intel or AMD or TSMC or any other stock trading lower as if I have a magic button to press to make the stock go higher. So if you are feeling PAIN then go read my earlier recent articles on the psychology of investing in bear markets because bear markets are PAINFUL where the degree of pain experienced depends on what time frame on is focused upon.

What Is Options Trading And How To Know If It Is Good For You / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Steve_Barker

Options trading is the buying and selling of assets that give the buyer the right to specify both the price and the time of purchase of a particular security. With options trading, you have complete control over your financial market decisions.

After purchasing an option, you are free to sell it at any time or day of your choosing. However, there is no penalty for not selling an option you have purchased. The two main categories of options are call and put options.

What Don’t They Tell You About Online Trading? / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Sumeet_Manhas

Traders come in all shapes and sizes, but we can narrow it down to two types. There are risk takers and those who play it safe. By definition, trading is a risky undertaking. It always has been. Despite our best efforts, it’s impossible to predict the direction and magnitude of price movements at any time. We use a variety of trading tools and resources to gauge the performance of the markets. These include technical and fundamental analysis.

By and large, trading platforms sell the hype with lofty promises of significant returns and comfortable retirements. Regardless, there are no guarantees. Stakeholders in the financial markets – particularly those with something to gain from unsuspecting traders and investors, are single-minded. They want to generate as much profit as possible in double-quick time. Hence the presence of fraudsters, shell companies, and less than honest financial reporting.

Elliott Waves: Your "Rhyme & Reason" to Mainstream Stock Market Opinions / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: EWI

R.N. Elliott's stock market observations fell together "into a general set of principles"

It's understandable why investors with little experience consult the market opinions of professionals.

But many of these new investors are left scratching their heads. Two headlines from July 29 indicate why:

  • [Fundstrat Managing Partner] says the 2022 bear market is over, stocks could hit new highs before year-end (CNBC)
  • Stock market's post-Fed bounce is a 'trap,' says Morgan Stanley's [Chief Investment Officer] (Marketwatch]

Yes, two directly opposing opinions that were published on the same day.

The Psychology of Investing in a Stocks Bear Market / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Every bull market is followed by a bear market and every bear market is followed by a bull market, where courtesy of the electron and inflation mega-trends the general indices are on an upwards exponential trend trajectory. Thus all bear markets are living on borrowed time and thus ones focus should be on accumulating positions in good stocks i.e. those that actually generate earnings and have good prospects for continuing earnings growth that courtesy of bear market negative sentiment results in prices trading to under value stocks i.e. to under X18 earnings, where everything above X18 is carrying a premium which is why I completely sold out of many stocks last year such as Amazon and Nvidia even though they had yet to peak due to the risks of a valuation reset as I covered in my in-depth analysis of August 2021

Does Selling Put Options During A Market Downturn Provide A Safety Net? / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Chris_Vermeulen

In a significant market downturn, bearish sentiment, if not outright fear, can drive down the share price of good companies rather drastically.  When the market is in a sustained selling mood, there can be a substantial disconnect between the long-term fundamentals and the technical price action we see on the chart. 

The Temptation to Bottom Fish

What can we do when good companies are trading at what appear to be bargain prices?  We could “stick our toe in the water” and buy shares.  But what if we’re wrong about whether a bottom in the share price is in place?  Or what if the stock takes a very long time to build a base and goes nowhere for an extended period?

Technical Analysis: Why You Should Expect a Popularity Surge / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: EWI

Here's when a "rebirth of interest" in cycles and waves occurs

You probably know that the term "technical analysis" refers to analyzing the behavior of financial markets themselves -- such as the stock market -- as opposed to "fundamental" analysis, which is based on news and events outside of financial markets.

Well, in recent years, technical analysis has been out of favor.

Useful Things You Need To Know About Tweezer Top Candlestick Pattern / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: Steve_Barker

The tweezer top candlestick pattern was popularized by Steve Nison in the West through his book ‘Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques’. Tweezers have varied in appearance, but there are certain traits that they have in common. Their appearance at market-turning points makes it possible to use them for analysis purposes. At times, they specify the likelihood of a reversal. When the price direction of an asset changes, it is known as a reversal.

These candlestick charts have been used by the Japanese to trade commodities since the 17th century. They monitor the prices of commodities in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

How to Recognize a Less\ Than Obvious Opportunity (In focus: Corn) / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: EWI

When I was growing up, my father owned and operated a furniture manufacturing company. Its products stocked the shelves of several well-known retail stores across the country, including Walmart.

On the cover of one of his most popular products, a simple D.I.Y. end table, was a picture of the fully assembled table with a framed photograph of a smiling young girl holding a Persian cat. That young girl was me, and the cat was my childhood pet Princess.

Naturally one day the inevitable happened. My dad and I were shopping at Walmart, and we passed a woman with one of his boxed DIY tables in her cart. She looked at me, then at the face staring back at her on the cover of the box, and then again at me.

Visibly shaken, she braved her way over to my dad and asked if, in fact, I was the girl on the box. Without skipping a beat, he grinned and said he saw the resemblance but no, I was not her and we were on our way. I couldn't help looking back to see the woman, standing there glued in place with an utterly baffled expression.

Learn to Value Stocks Using the Earnings Growth Factor / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Nadeem_Walayat

After the current panic passes I will revert to posting my primary AI stocks table as the main table for data, presently the table retains my original pre-panic buying levels as of 22nd November 2022 for comparison purposes with levels achieved in red against those that remain pending. Remember all of these levels once upon a time seemed far out of reach, who could have imagined Nvidia would fall from $336 to $236 over a couple of months! Google to $2625! Microsoft to $282, Intel to $48, okay I'll give you Intel, but many of the levels have now been achieved and then some!

Your Journey to High-Confidence Stock and Commodity Markets Trading Starts Now With Corrective Elliott Wave Patterns / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: EWI

Soybeans and Apple stock (AAPL): Corrective patterns signaled opportunities in these disparate markets. Your market could be next!

The last 2 years have been a time of immense global adversity with the most challenging human health crisis in over a century.

But it has also been a time of immense personal growth. The uncomfortable realization of our dependence on others for everything from entertainment, education, nourishment, and income came into stark, swift focus. And with it, how quickly those things can be taken away without warning because of that dependence.

In turn, the pandemic saw an insatiable industry of online self-improvement crash courses emerge on home garden horticulture, podcast making, home building, home schooling, and -- learning to trade financial markets to "ensure a steady livelihood despite economic setbacks."

The problem is, learning to trade isn't like learning to plant tubers in your backyard. It's much more complicated and can't be fully conveyed with mock "trials" or simulated positions. At best, many of such courses get people in the door, but not seated at the table of real-world practice and risk-management.

The Put / Call Ratio – A Technique Used To Gauge Stock Market Extremes / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Perhaps you’ve heard of the “Put / Call Ratio” (PCR) and been unsure of exactly what it is or when and how to use it.

First, a quick review of what Calls and Puts are. Calls are option contracts that increase in value from a RISE in the price of the underlying stock or index. Puts are option contracts that increase in value from a DROP in the price of the underlying stock or index.

Let’s jump in and see what’s “under the hood” and how we might use that to better inform our decision-making as traders and investors.

FREETRADE - What Value FREE SHARES Can You Expect to Get When Signing Up? AMD, Apple, Microsoft? UK / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Nadeem_Walayat

FREE TRADE is probably one of the best UK trading platforms for Stocks and shares ISA's, with it's commission free trading and fractional shares and low F/X fee of 0.45% AND they give a free share currently worth between £10 and £200 when signing up through a referral link. However what free share can people expect to get will it be an AMD? Apple, maybe a Microsoft as I show what my 7 FREE shares were that I got via referring others to FREE TRADE, so this is a good realistic expectation of what one is likely to get from FREE TRADE.

INVESTING LESSON - Give your Portfolio Some Breathing Space / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Investing is accumulating positions in good corporations for the long-run and not trying to swing trade as some appear to be doing. My primary tools for monitoring my portfolio are Excel spread sheets that I only tend to update prior to posting an article that contains the list of AI tech stocks as I am used to not constantly looking at the state of my portfolio i.e. in years past I would update the prices usually once every couple of months or so given that it is a manual exercise.

Folks, you need to give both your portfolio and yourselves some breathing space, peace of mind as staring at the your stock tracker app's blinking red and green is going to drive you nuts! Don't use trackers, don't use app's. Just use a spread sheet and update your holdings manually once in a while then get on with the rest of your life, don't let your portfolio rule your life!

Stock Market Investing LESSON - Buying Value / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Nadeem_Walayat

INVESTING LESSON - BUYING VALUE

Remember folks when investing one is not trying to buy the bottoms, one is trying to buy VALUE! There are many metrics for measuring value but for most investors the easiest way to measure value is the P/E Ratio, it is simple and easy to determine and virtually every investment site features the P/E ratios for stocks. Though from my experience many of the sites posted P/E ratios tend to out of date or inaccurate i.e. I calc virtually all of the PE ratios myself by dividing the share price by the earnings per share for the last 4 quarters and that is how one gets the P/E ratio i.e. how many YEARS it would take for the corporation to EARN it's share price.

Now there are many more metrics than that which can be just as important such as whether the corporation printing it's own shares Powell style, Brrrr, so shareholder dilution is another metric I watch among 15 that go towards generating the EC ratio, a quick way to see how expensive or cheap a stock is.

Stock Maket Trading Lesson - How to REALLY Trade Markets / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock Market Conclusion

Stock market correction so far has been fairly mild with the tech stocks not reaching levels to offer enough of a discount to justify exposure to in the face of the coming inflation storm. Whilst October is not done with yet i.e. we could yet see a final leg down, especially given the potential for earnings surprises form the tech giants due over the next 10 days.. However with each passing day such an outcome diminishes, thus the stock market appears to be gearing up for another run to new all time highs which given the mild correction so far suggests that the Dow could trade nearer to 40k, than 37k by the end of this year.

However, my outlook for 2022 sees worsening conditions that will see transitory inflation become permanent, so there is going to come a time when investors will do the math of what high inflation means for future corporate earnings, i.e. lower earnings due to rising costs and less disposable incomes. Hence it remains highly probable that most stocks will trade to below their October 2021 lows during 2022.
