Basic Financial Markets Analysis Part3 / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we begin, it must be understood that there are many perceptions of value. In fact, if you took 10 investment professionals polled them individually; you’d likely get several very different definitions of value. If you put them together and forced them to come to a consensus, you would do well not holding your breath waiting for an answer. While there is no one right definition – especially in the investing world, what we are looking to do is select a metric or some group of metrics that applies to our particular situation. Again, investing should not be approached with a  ‘one size fits all’ mentality. It must also be said that this list is not a comprehensive one, but rather a sampling of some of the methodologies available for ascertaining value.

Discipline in Commodity Trading & Trend Following / InvestorEducation / Commodities Trading

By: Andrew_Abraham

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most important aspects of commodity trading is discipline. I am a commodity trading advisor & trend follower. The real truth is most of the time nothing is really happening ( there are no trends) and our job is not to lose money.

Investors Follow the Herd? Or Reason? / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKieran Osborne writes: How do you diversify when all asset classes are moving in tandem? This was a key question many faced at the height of the financial crisis, when all asset classes were plunging together, but is an issue that remains today. We have long held concerns over the increased tendency for the values of different asset classes to move in the same direction simultaneously, as was the case leading up to the crisis, throughout the crisis, and today. In fact, according to Bloomberg, the correlation coefficient that measures how closely markets rise and fall together has reached the highest level ever.
