The Short Story of How We Lose, The Concept of "Myopic Loss Aversion" / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA curious thing happened to a middle-aged Frenchman in Monte Carlo last year. He had unexpectedly received a year-end bonus of 10,000 from his employer, and decided to visit Le Grand Casino for a weekend, where he could relax and gamble with his new found wealth. Since his wife and daughters were visiting his stepmother that weekend, he would be able to focus entirely on making some money. His first night was judiciously spent at the Roulette tables, where his sharp instincts and calculated patience presumably allowed him to double his allotted wealth in just five hours. It was an excellent night for the man, who was now 10,000 richer, and he spent the next afternoon lounging in a cabana at the hotel's pool.

Resolving the Stubborn Psychology of Fish / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor those unfamiliar with the game of poker, it is essentially a game where players attempt to win money from other players at their table by having the best five-card hand at showdown or by betting their opponents off of the best hand. The most popular form of poker is Texas Hold Em', in which each player is dealt two "hole cards" followed by a round of betting, then a three-card "flop" followed with another round of betting, a one-card "turn" with betting, and finally a one-card "river" with the last round of betting. Each player can, but is not required to, use one or both of their hole cards, and must use 3-5 cards on the board, to construct their best possible five-card hand (from best to worst - straight flush, four of a kind, full house, flush, straight, three of a kind, two-pair, pair, high card).

The Case Against Investor Portfolio Diversification / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTalk with an investment advisor, and what's the first piece of advice you will hear? Diversify your portfolio. The case for diversification is repeated so often that it's come to be thought of as an indisputable rule. Hardly anyone makes the case against diversifying your portfolio. But because we believe that too much liquidity has made all markets act similar to one another, we make that case. Heresy? Not at all. Just because investment banks and stock brokerages say you should diversify doesn't make it true. After all, their analysts nearly always say that the markets look bullish and that people should buy more now.  For a breath of fresh air on this subject, read what Bob Prechter thinks about diversification.

Reflexivity And Trend Following / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVictor Chan Wai writes: George Soros is unarguably the greatest fund manager ever lived who, upon the request to disclose his secret, attributed his success to a market behavior theory he developed himself, which is now famously known as the theory of reflexivity. The basic assumptions of the theory as well as its implications to the formulation of a successful trading strategy will be discussed in this article.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIBM will reported earnings after the closing bell on Tuesday, January 18.  For traders maintaining a position in common stock during earnings releases and the frequent price gyrations can result in uncomfortable moments.

Earnings releases for the options trader do not force us to take a position in which we must correctly predict the direction of price action stemming from the earnings release.

The 4x1 Forex Trading Strategy in a Nutshell / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVictor Chan Wai-To writes: It is better to teach a man to fish, than to give him a fish everyday. It is better to teach you one principle that you can understand, than to show you a hundred techniques that you don't know how to apply. Therefore, a great instructional writing does not just lay out the methods, but also an intelligence framework with which you can make the methods you own. In my opinion, the bestseller forex e-book, Bird Watching in Lion Country - Forex Trading Explained, is exactly that kind of material that will help you to be a better trader. Unfortunately, the book is pretty thick so it requires quite some time to digest. Fortunately, here is an alternative: I have summarised the core ideas of the book in one article, and it won't take you ten minutes to capture the very principle to trade currencies successfully.
