Adding Technical Indicators To Dividend Stock Selection Increases Total Returns / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe compared three approaches to dividend investing. In one scenario, we relied only on fundamental data and the consensus street analyst recommendation. In a second scenario, we required at least one bullish technical indicator. In a third scenario, we required at least two technical indicators to have some confirmation of the technical condition. The combination of fundamentals and two bullish indicators was a hands down winner for both total return over five years, and for avoidance of the 2008 market crash.

Dividends Provide An Stock Investors Return Bonus / InvestorEducation / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith all things being equal, dividend paying common stocks provide their shareholders a return bonus, or what some might like to call a kicker, over an equivalent common stock that pays no dividend. Many investors do not see it this way, as they tend to think of the dividend providing them their return.  However, the stock market capitalizes earnings whether a company pays a dividend or not.  Moreover, we contend that the market will value a given company’s earnings based on their past and future prospects for growth, again, regardless of whether a dividend is paid or not.

What We Can Learn from a Great Economist / InvestorEducation / Economic Theory

By: David_Gordon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough Leland Yeager calls himself a fellow traveler of the Austrian School (p. 100), rather than a full-fledged member of it — he is a fellow traveler of the Chicago School as well — no reader of his essays can fail to note one respect in which he resembles two quintessential Austrian economists, Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard. Like them, Yeager is a scholar of enormous learning, a fact in evidence in each of the 28 essays of his collected here. As an example, few of his colleagues, one suspects, would know that "Thomas Hobbes … suggested that one might test whether a piece of abstract philosophizing means anything by seeing how readily it could be translated from the original language into another" (p. 267, n. 2).

Basic Elliott Wave Theory Video Lesson -- Characteristics of Zigzags / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen you are new to trading with Elliott Waves, it can take some time before each pattern is easy to recognize and understand. But as with new music, the more you listen the more the particular rhythm and meaning stand out.

There may be as many approaches to market forecasting as there are genres of music, yet once you find a style that you like -- in trading or in tunes -- the patterns that drive each move (whether it's a pip or a note) become evident.

Learning Elliott Wave Theory - How to Use Zig-Zag Patterns / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou're not supposed to compare apples to oranges, but I do compare apples to apples: I prefer the classically mellow taste of Red Delicious to the grassy and tart Granny Smith.

It can be a challenge to describe the differences between two similar objects. For example, I'd struggle to tell the difference between Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc in a taste test (and why I don't try to earn a living as a sommelier).

End of Economic Man Revisited / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1939 Peter F. Drucker wrote "The End of Economic Man: The Origins of Totalitarianism". Its publication caused a sensation. When Winston Churchill became prime minister of Great Britain he gave the order to include the book in the kit issued to every graduate of a British Officer's Candidate School. A year previously Churchill had reviewed the publication. It impressed him because he realized that something fundamental had happened in the world with the rise of Fascisms and he wished his officers to understand what they were fighting in Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy.

What To Do When The Stock Market Opens Big In One Direction / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: David_Grandey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a rule of thumb, anytime a market opens big in either direction, NEVER take a trade in the opening direction of the market when you have a big opening move. The big move already occurred. Just think if you would have shorted MNST and AAPL and a lot of others out there at the open today — OUCH. The flip side is don’t react and sell either right away. Have you seen what just about everything has done since the open? Bounced that’s what. Let the opening dust settle first and above all NEVER REACT.

Option Traders Profit From The Passage of Time / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy most recent missive discussed some of the nuances of the options Greek, Delta which deals with the change in option price with regard to changes in price of the underlying. Today I would like to examine some of the practical details surrounding the second of the primal forces describing the behavior of options with regard to the passage of time. This second Greek is Theta.

As opposed to the value of a stock position which varies only in relation to changes in price, options are subject to changes in value as a result of the interplay of three factors: price of the underlying, time to expiration, and implied volatility.

Witness the Epic Battle Between Stock Market Investor Hope and Investor Fear / InvestorEducation / Stock Market Sentiment

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCan an investor ever know enough about financial markets to make a truly informed decision?

Even professionals must cope with imperfect knowledge, and the constant uncertainty that comes with it. That's why every investor looks to others for signals about what to do.

Have you ever watched a dog interact with its owner? The dog repeatedly looks at the owner, taking cues constantly. The owner is the leader, and the dog is a pack animal alert for every cue of what the owner wants it to do.
