Using Elliott Waves: As Simple As A-B-C / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: EWI

Two resources from Elliott Wave International can help you get started

When Ralph Nelson Elliott discovered the Wave Principle nearly 70 years ago, he explained how social (or crowd) behavior trends and reverses in recognizable patterns. You can learn to identify these patterns as they unfold in the financial markets, and use them to help anticipate where prices will go next. Elliott Wave International has developed a free comprehensive online course -- The Elliott Wave Tutorial: 10 Lessons on the Wave Principle -- which describes these patterns and explains how they relate to one another.

To use the Wave Principle as you analyze the markets, you need a basic understanding of the Elliott method -- the rules and guidelines, the literal shape of individual waves, even when the larger trend may turn.

Does Market Timing Work? / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Sol_Palha

Anything I've ever done that ultimately was worthwhile... initially scared me to death. ~ Betty Bender

Many individuals and experts state that market timing is impossible. The answer to this question is yes and no. We all know there are seasons in a year and we know roughly when winter, summer, fall, and spring will begin. No one can predict the exact time the one season will transition into the next. The same rationale applies to market timing. If you are trying to predict the exact market turning points, then you might get it right once or twice, but overall your record will be dismal, it is an exercise in futility for the most part and best reserved for those who seem to have a deep desire to take on large losses. Market timing is like waiting for a change in the season.

This is going to be the last of the trading lessons for a while. I don’t want to turn this into a trading blog, and there are important macro things to talk about (especially next week).

He knows I have military experience, and he wanted to pick my brain about how he could use his MBA while working for the government.

Three Things Every Master Trader Knows About Trading Options / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: ...

Tom Gentile writes: The last two weeks have seen significant market action in both directions. And it’s just more proof that you need options in your portfolio to help cut your risk and boost your potential returns. Traditional buy-and-hold investors have been taken to the cleaners by whip-saw markets.

I don’t want that happen to you.

While I expect this increased volatility to continue as we head into September and October, things seem to have settled down for the moment, and the markets have, for the time being, resumed their upward march.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Market Fluctuations / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: John_Mauldin

Patrick Cox: Most of you know that my day job involves finding disruptive technologies for investors. Most of you also know that the stock market has recently taken a southward plunge.

When I was younger, I always wondered why big fluctuations in markets seemed to cause so many people so much anxiety and consternation. It’s not as if we don’t know that, historically, markets have always displayed big swings. Understanding this, it always seemed clear to me that a rational individual would not invest money in equities if that money might be needed in the short run.

7 Key Rules Contrarian Investors Should Adhere To / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Sol_Palha

"Given a sufficient number of people and an adequate amount of time you can create insurmountable opposition to the most inconsequential idea." ~ Anonymous

Contrarian investing is a dynamic field and not a static one. The assumption that it's a static field is held by the new breed of fashion contrarians, whose only donation to this field has been to glamorize it and distort the correct notion of being a contrarian investor. These fashion contrarians are no different from those with the mass mindset; they only pretend to do things differently, but the moment fear or uncertainty is in the air, they flee for the exits like bandits being chased by the hounds of hell. A true contrarian in most cases understands the basic rules of mass psychology. If you are not familiar with these rules, you are doing yourself a disservice and should catch up on them ASAP.

The "How to Get Rich" Lesson I Learned on the Trading Floor in Chicago / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Back in 1982, I was a clerk for a big market maker on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). A year later, I was sitting on the exchange and running a hedge fund.

My first day of trading was a disaster. But it's where I learned how to get rich.

You see, there was a "fast market" in FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), which means the pit was crowded with traders yelling and screaming, buying and selling options based on an unexpectedly positive earnings report that had just come out. I rushed into the crowd and amassed a position.

Bill Gross Warns Fed Will Raise U.S. Interest Rates in September by 25 Basis Points / InvestorEducation / US Interest Rates

By: Bloomberg

Bill Gross of Janus Capital spoke with Bloomberg's Tom Keene following today's jobs report.

Gross said he sees the Fed raising interest rates in September by 25 basis points: "There have some pretty strong signals from Lockhart and others that September is the number. And I think it's because of financial conditions. We know that inflation is close to zero. Yes, unemployment is steady, but low... Whether it's 25 or 50 basis points-- probably 25, I hope. 50 would scare the market."

Shame - A Powerful motivator for Traders / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: John_Mauldin

Shame is a powerful motivator. Especially in this business.

When I was an ETF trader, if a client came in to trade a few hundred thousand shares of an ETF and the price moved abruptly against him right after the trade was consummated, the client would request a price improvement. This was to prevent embarrassment when the client (an execution trader) reported the fill to his boss (the portfolio manager).
