Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently had a chance to speak at a conference where Dr. Ian Bremmer spoke after me. I was very impressed with his thought process and asked him to give me an outline of his speech to share with you for this week's Outside the Box. It's a shorter version of his powerhouse book, Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World. I highly recommend it.

And what, you're asking, is a "G-Zero world"? In a word, it's a leaderless world. A world in which, as Bremmer says, "Not so long ago, America, Western Europe and Japan were the world's powerhouses. Today, they're struggling to recover their dynamism…. But nor are rising powers like China, India, Brazil, Turkey, the Gulf Arabs and others ready to take up the slack…. If not the West, the rest, or the institutions where they come together, who will lead? The answer is, no one."

Combining the Andrews Lines with the W.D. Gann Head and Shoulders Pattern / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRon Jaenisch writes: Both WD Gann and Alan Andrews used geometry and pattern recognition. Numerous articles and books have been written about both. Even though some of the techniques of Andrews and Gann are well known, there has been little discussion in combining the techniques. The advantages are significant. Gann techniques have a high probability and Andrews gives one the ability to enter the market with lower risk and significantly better risk reward ratios.

Is the World coming to an End? Stock Market MAP Waves Theory Explained, Part 3 / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: Marc_Horn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn MAP Waves Part 1 I presented my methodology. In MAP Waves Part 2 I presented probabilities as a simple foundation for a very basic explanation of wave theory so that you can start to visualize what is happening in the stock market and to better understand trading patterns in the context of MAP waves.

Basic Wave theory

Being a strong believer if the KISS principle - grossly simplified for explanation purposes that everyone should be able to relate to;

A wave is a transfer of energy in multiple dimensions - we only need 2 - amplitude and frequency. Amplitude we see as price action and frequency as time - but the beauty of this explanation is that any one of use can see it on a stock chart!

What to Make of the Manic Depressive Stock Market? / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market: one week it acts like Dr. Jekyll, the next week it's Mr. Hyde.

That shift can even occur in the course of a single session.

These dramatic fluctuations appear to be impulsive; and we know that impulse does not flow from cold reason. Even so, the Efficient Market Hypothesis would have us believe that investors are constantly applying reason and logic to reach some objective market pricing, via the latest news or measure of stock market valuation.

How to Invest Like the Market Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffetts Rules / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Vail writes: For months, the Obama administration has been using Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A, BRK.B) Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett's considerable name recognition to try to change how America's top earners are taxed.

The fate of the so-called "Buffett Rule," which would apply a minimum tax of 30% to individuals making more than $1 million a year, still has yet to be determined. Chalk it up to politics as usual.

What Magazine Covers Really Say About the Stock Market / InvestorEducation / Mainstream Media

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: Will Rogers once said that "good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment."

If he only knew.

Then again, as one of America's famous humorists and social commentators, I suspect he "knew" all too well that history rarely works out the way people think.

Why "Boring" Businesses Are More Profitable Than "Exciting" Ones / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDan Ferris writes: This spring, a reader wrote to me with a complaint...

He was irritated with my coverage of "World Dominating Dividend Grower" stocks (WDDGs).

These stocks are too "boring," he said. Why pay to hear how these companies continue to do the same darn thing day in and day out?

Investing Advice, Five Ways to Conquer Gambler's Ruin / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: The relationship between investing and profits seems simple enough. You buy low, sell high and your portfolio grows -- or so goes the story.

In reality though, success comes down to something called "Gambler's Ruin."

Most investors have never heard the term but understanding its implications can mean the difference between heartache and success, especially now.

Stock Market MAP Waves Part 1 - An Alternative to Elliot Waves / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: Marc_Horn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI had real problems with the complexity of Elliot Wave (EW) corrections, where there are never ending corrections, with some EW analysts having multi decade corrections, where higher tops are valid under EW theory. This presents serious investment difficulties, because you never know where you are in any wave. Here I will present MAP waves, my modified wave counting based on analysis with examples and statistics so that probabilities can be established for risk management on a weekly and daily pivot scale. I only look at indices, because individual stocks can be too easily manipulated, including by governments as is done in the US.

General Thoughts About Luck / InvestorEducation / Risk Analysis

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

As someone who plays poker regularly, I'd like to think that I have a good understanding of why luck is important in our lives. It's NOT because the world is completely random and we have no influence over what outcomes will materialize for us - actually, it is the very fact that we do make meaningful decisions in the face of uncertainty that generates luck. Let me try to explain what I mean with an analogy to the game of poker.

Poker is a game of skill, which means those players with superior skills (patience, discipline, memory, critical/logical thinking, mathematical analysis) have a long-term edge over the less skillful among them. It is a very simple game with simple rules governing what each player can do (fold, call, bet, raise), what order they can do it in, how much they can bet at any given time, which hands rank higher than others, etc.

Investing Diversification: Is It All It's Cracked Up To Be? / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Charles_Carnevale

Investing Diversification: Is It All It's Cracked Up To Be?Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's an old cliché about real estate investing that states that the three cardinal rules are: location- location- location. Clever pundits have borrowed upon this refrain and glibly state that the three most important or cardinal rules of investing are: diversify- diversify- diversify. However, careful analysis will reveal that diversification is a multifaceted concept that has different meanings, benefits and even risks depending on how it's used and what its ultimate purpose is. Therefore, my goal is to examine this ubiquitous investing concept from various angles and perspectives.

Are Share Rollbacks: Good or Bad for Investors / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Dudley_Baker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a general rule, we hate to see an announcement of a share rollback, however, there exceptions which we cover below. Investors should always be aware that if a company has, say over 150 million shares outstanding, in our opinion, it is a potential candidate for a rollback and the announcement should not come as a surprise.

A True Stock Investor’s Most Important Performance Measurement / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough most people either fail to realize it, or simply refused to accept it, every stock portfolio has two separate and distinct performances.  The first, and in my opinion, the least important, is stock price movement.  If you buy a stock at $10 a share and it goes to $15 a share it’s a good stock.  In contrast, if you buy a stock at $15 a share and it goes to$10 a share it’s a bad stock. Meanwhile, the operating performance (earnings results) is mostly ignored while often irrational price gyrations are excessively fixated upon.  Of course, I understand why people behave this way, but I still can’t help but be very frustrated by this behavior.
