Predicting Stock Market Movements / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI've been thinking about starting a stock market prediction business. Clearly, there is a huge market for timely and accurate information of this type, and just as clearly, predicting the future is much easier than dealing with the realities of whatever is actually happening at the moment. If investors could know what's going to happen next, they could develop a plan to deal with it in the present. Maybe Wall Street could help me get this new business up and running!

Sentiment Analysis: How Investor Perception Drives Market Prices / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: Topsy-turvy markets like these can easily make your head spin. I mean, we're currently dealing with overdone trends, implosive fundamentals, government regulation and an increasingly globalized world economy.

And as if simply understanding those complex dynamics wasn't enough, we still have the difficult task of trying to make money.

Understanding Contracts For Difference (CFD's) / InvestorEducation / Derivatives

By: Christopher_Quigley

ONE of the most innovative financial instruments that has been developed over the last decade or so is the CONTRACT FOR DIFFENCE, better know as a CFD. The explosion in the use of this product is one of the reasons why London , as opposed to New York , is becoming the financial location of preference for many financial managers and hedge traders. CFD's are not allowed in the U.S. due to legal restrictions imposed by the American Regulators.

Return Persistence & Future Stock Performance: Are Momentum Strategies Effective? / InvestorEducation / Sector Analysis

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReturn persistence – the tendency for stocks to trend in the same direction – has been the topic of a number of academic studies. Many academics, and a number of portfolio managers, adhere to the theory that the market is reasonably efficient. As such, historical stock prices should reflect the sum of public knowledge and should have little predictive value of future stock price movements. Many value managers adhere to this theory. The fact that some studies show that stocks tend to trend on one direction is therefore puzzling to these researchers.

The Complete TurtleTrader - Book Review / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: Michael_Nystrom

Buy and hold is dead! The extreme market volatility over the last decade should make this abundantly clear to even casual market watchers, but it is something that good traders have known all along: You trade securities, you don't marry them. Buying a stock is not a commitment "until death do you part." A friend once told me the story of a man he knew who worked at Worldcom during the go-go 90's and had his entire 401(k) invested in the company stock. He was waiting for his account to hit $2 million, and then he was going to cash out. It was almost there - $1.8m, $1.9m - something like that when the stock began its terminal decline. Instead of selling, he held on until the bitter end, until all was lost. Moral of the story: The market is the utlimate authority. It does not listen to you, nor care about your dreams & desires, so you had best learn to listen to it.

Five Common Mistakes in Commodities Investing / InvestorEducation / Resources Investing

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTake a deep breath. The rout may be over. It may not be. This is a time when commodities investors have seen their mettle tested once again. This is nothing new. As recently as June 2006, we saw the price of silver drop precipitously from nearly $14.50 an ounce to under $10; a drop of nearly 35%. Granted, this most recent correction may not be over yet, but so far, it has only claimed damage in the area of 19%. These types of corrections are perfectly normal in the commodity markets and given what we've been seeing in the equity markets, should not be at all surprising. That's the bad news. The good news is that there is once again a tremendous opportunity to pick up both bullion and related stocks at fire sale prices.

Economy and PE Ratio Impact on Long-term Stock Market Investment Returns / InvestorEducation / Stock Market Valuations

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

  • Muddle Through Gets A Boost
  • Honey, I Vaporized My Customers
  • Consumer Spending is Going, Going...South
  • The Boomers Break the Deal

Today we drop back to take a look at the economy and its long term effect on our portfolio returns. I am in Orlando this week, speaking at the Newport Advisor Conference sponsored by the Newport Group. The attendees are primarily investment advisors focused on larger retirement accounts and pensions. This week's letter is the gist of my speech I gave yesterday, as the entire speech would be way too long for a weekly letter. I want to thank the Newport Group for letting me do this, and thanks for the very kind way they have hosted me. Note: this week's letter will print a little longer as there are a lot of graphs. And next week I will address the housing market, as was my intention this week.

How to ‘Invest' In Precious Metals and Commodities with $5,000 to $10,000 / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Dudley_Baker

There are many ways to invest in the precious metals and natural resource sector. Many analysts would first suggest investors purchase gold and silver bullion or coins, then focus on some of the larger capitalized mining companies (most of which are selling for over $35 per share). You might consider the GLD or the SLV, the Exchange Traded Funds for gold and silver currently selling for $96 and $197, respectively. Not all investors have the financial resources necessary to purchase these alternatives.

The Stock Market Rally Is Coming! The Rally Is Coming / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlways buy too soon--- because no one will tell you either when the rally will start or, more importantly, how long it will last. Of course those are the two things you want to know, but all you really have to go on is the experience of the past. This is not going to be a technical analysis of a series of numbers or chart formations that have predictive capabilities. Instead, it is intended to be a mild sedative to calm your collective fears and to allow for a relaxed analysis of the corrections of the past. You have to prepare yourself for the rally that is surely coming, and it may just arrive sooner than you think--- today, even.

Brainwashing of the American Investor - Academic Investment Book Reviews / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: Steve_Selengut

Steve Selengut's "Brainwashing of the American Investor" is an eye-opening and intelligent book, which offers an analysis of the investment industry and a smart and practical guide to non-professional investors. Selengut is wary of the conventional wisdom of investing professionals, who appear to have abandoned the tried and true principles of investment, in favor of super-hype, organizational conformity, and greed. Selengut's back-to-basics approach builds on his critique of the Wall Street hypsters and their bandwagon mentalities. Instead, he serves up a clear set of economic principles, mixed with sound commonsensical advice.

Investment Portfolio Performance and The Working Capital Model / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Steve_Selengut


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOuch! The mighty Dow has fallen to within a financial heart beat of its 1999 high water mark, boasting an average per year gain of less than one half of one percent in spite of several interim manipulations designed to improve the performance picture. The S & P 500 Average, an equally prestigious indicator of broader market movements, is nearly 13% below where it was at approximately the same time. Both figures reflect no investment expenses at all. So, in spite of the mostly ignored fact that neither index includes any income securities (bonds, preferred stocks, REITs, etc.), a reasonable person could well expect his or her portfolio market value to be well below where it was nearly ten years ago! Now that's a fairly dismal scenario, but it's the in-your-face reality for most investors as we move forward into what we all hope will be a more spring-like investment climate.

Put Option Strategies to Protect Your Stocks Portfolio / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe all want to beat the market. The recent volatility in the markets is causing many investors to question if they should sell their favorite companies and wait for a better day. Others are just resigned to ride it out, believing in the buy and hold approach. After all that is what they have been told by their brokers, or read in various publications and books. So is there a way to hold on to the best companies and just buy some down side risk insurance to protect against potential losses. As it turns out you can have cake and eat it too. Buying put options that protect against a stocks decline offers just this type of insurance.
