Trading Leverage – the Good, the Bad & the Ugly / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Dudley_Baker

In a perfect world all investors would make correct decisions and all leverage would be good leverage. Yea right, none of us are perfect and frequently our investments and the timing thereof maybe off the mark. Therefore, it is necessary for us to evaluate the different choices of leverage to be used (if any) in our investments.

Nolte Notes - Developing Street Sense / InvestorEducation / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Street Sense, what everyone aspires to, even after many years of paid education – an understanding of the way the world works, not the way it does inside of a textbook. Street Sense also was the first Breeders Cup juvenile to win the Kentucky Derby. Street sense is also what many investors believe they have when it comes to Wall Street, however bull markets tend to make everyone look smart.

Stock Market Demand Power and Supply Pressure Buy and Sell Entry and Exit Signals - Part 2 / InvestorEducation / US Stock Markets

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

Last week we presented charts and theory on how the Demand Power and Supply Pressure measurements for the S&P 500 generate highly correlative entry and exit signals for traders and market-timing investors who want to go long and short, catching the waves and realizing profits far greater than buy and hold strategies offer.

This weekend we present our proprietary Demand Power and Supply Pressure charts for the NASDAQ 100 , with equally spectacular results. Aside from the astonishing correlation, the most exciting aspect about this system is the guidance it provides on exiting an established position.

Navigating the HUI (Gold Bugs Index) Using Elliott Wave Theory / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

Providing a consistently accurate road map for traders and investors is both a rewarding and challenging responsibility that we passionately embrace. We approach our calling as though legally bound by the highest of fiduciary standards.

Although it is clearly impossible for one to know with any level of certainty how and when prices will move within a given series, this article will provide testament that it is indeed plausible to attain a distinct advantage, and actionable level of foreknowledge relative to dynamic price evolution in both time and amplitude.

Success in the two separate endeavors of trading and analysis is by no means failsafe or a sure thing. To the contrary, trading losses, and failed forecasting signals generously populate the real life experience of the most successful traders and analysts. In this business, no individual, method, or system can get things right all of the time. Within the chart archives below, we will provide such examples of real-world challenges and triumphs.

The Trading Doctor - Why Can't You Execute The Trade? / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Dr_Janice_Dorn

The mail I am receiving indicates that many of you are having real challenges with execution of trades. In the next week or so, I will go over some critical elements of trade execution, particularly the setting of stops.

However, today is about just taking the trade and why you can't do it.
We live in a culture of instant gratification. We thrive on everything from microwave ovens, fast foods, instant replay, mastery in a minute, one-night stands, a pill to "fix" what ails you, and just about everything else that you see around you which just "lights up" the brain dopamine systems. It's a "faster and faster forward" world in which we all live. Naturally, there is carryover into our trading. Why wouldn't there be?

Trading Wisdom - Trading is a game of Probabilities and not one of Certainties / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: Dr_Janice_Dorn

One of the great evils of trading is false exactness...Trading is a fuzzy process and I mean fuzzy in the best sense of the word. That is, as in fuzzy logic, as in the willingness to accept the idea that things aren't exactly quantifiable and to forge ahead anyway....John Bollinger ( creator of the Bollinger Bands)

Trading is not about perfection. It is about probability and progress. All charts, analyses (fundamental and technical) and trading plans are built on probabilities.

Why then, do so many traders strive for perfection? Why do so many traders miss trades, waiting for exactly the right entry and then beat up on themselves when it doesn't come and the position runs away while they sit there scratching their heads and condemning themselves?

Values Plus Growth Investing Strategy (Part 1) / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Hans_Wagner

Many investors seek to beat the market buy using value or growth strategies. Does an investor have to chose one approach, or can they be blended together to get the best of both? To help people to learn to invest his is the first of several articles on value and growth investing.

As defined by Investopedia , “value investing is the strategy of selecting stocks that trade for less than their intrinsic value. Value investors actively seek stocks of companies that they believe the market has undervalued. They believe the markets overreact to good and bad news, causing stock price movements that do not correspond with the company's long-term fundamentals. The result is an opportunity for value investors to profit by buying when the price is deflated.”

Overview of Cycles Analysis and a Brief Application to Crude Oil / InvestorEducation / Cycles Analysis

By: Tim_Wood

From a cyclical perspective, the trend is defined by the direction of the cycle of the next larger degree. This means that from a cyclical perspective we work in many different dimensions. The key is to isolate and study each cycle of each dimension so that the direction and expectation of these cycles can be known. The identification of these cycle lows is definitely outside of the scope of this brief overview, as it would take volumes of material to do this subject justice.

I use a number of indicators to aid in identifying cycle tops and bottoms, but the best indicator I have found for this is my Cycle Turn Indicator. Anyway, all I want to do here is simply present the concept of using cycle highs and lows of various degrees to show you the concept of how we can work in the various dimensions to identify important turn points.

The Trading Doctor - A Broken Heart - Learn to Trade with Discipline / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: Dr_Janice_Dorn

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years... Abraham Lincoln

Today, I had to admit a 25-year-old trader to the hospital. He complained of crushing substernal chest pain and collapsed at his trading desk.He will survive this, most likely. However, it is pretty clear that he will never be the same. No one gets out of this type of situation unscathed. The trauma will pass, and the immediate stress will dissipate. The anxiety and the post-traumatic stress will be with him for years to come.

Learning to Trade Financial Markets - Are you unbiased in your analysis of market direction ? / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: Marty_Chenard

A simple test to see if you look at the market in a non-biased way ...

One of the things that complicates are ability to read the market right is "non-objectivity".

Non objectivity is when we "have an opinion" of what the market will do and we subconsciously let that opinion tell us a different story of what the chart is telling us.

Learning to Trade - The Grand Strategy / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: Joseph_Russo

As follow up to our previous article, Learn to Trade Like a Spartan Warrior , we thought it wise to dig a little deeper, and provide additional clarity relative to aligning ones' specific objectives with fitting strategies.

It is not difficult to draw the analogy of war into the financial sphere. Long wars comprise a series of minor and major battles. More often than not, one war leads to another.

One glance at a long-term price chart and one quickly realizes that the peaks, troughs, and the sharp jagged edges defining it, exemplify a “war without end.”

Is your portfolio properly diversified ? / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Hans_Wagner

If you have ever watch Jim Cramer and his segment “Are you diversified?” then you probably have some idea what lack of diversification means. The idea is to Beat the Market investors should maintain a diversified portfolio. The problem is that many investors think they are diversified and therefore protected from the market's risks (at least somewhat). Well, this might not be accurate.

Managing Risk with Warrants, Options & Leaps / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Dudley_Baker

Regardless of what the markets are currently doing, now, more than ever is the time to take action to protect your portfolio.

Over the last few weeks investors have been very very surprised at the performance of virtually all of the markets with the big initial shock coming from the 9% decline in the Shanghai markets overnight. Many analysts have had some great insight into what the problems are, the effects of them and how investors should approach the markets. Unfortunately, we have many different opinions from these analysts. While differing opinions are great to read it can and does create much doubt in the mind of the average investor. This is truly a time that you, the investor, must firmly believe in your investment philosophy or at a minimum attempt to protect yourself in the event you are wrong.

Two Very Important Stock Market Investment Rules! / InvestorEducation / Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

Someone once asked the famous bank robber Willie Sutton why he robbed banks. Willie's answer was simple – “Because that's where the money is!”

You know, Sutton had a point. That's why I was very interested to hear that Kevan Watts, the head of Merrill Lynch's international division, will be moving his office from London to Hong Kong.

Guys like Watts aren't flocking to Asia to eat sushi or fried rice ... they're going because that's where the money is. Heck, a third of Goldman Sachs' 2006 pretax profits came from Asia!

Learn to Trade Like a Spartan Warrior / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Joseph_Russo

Making a conscious decision to trade financial markets is the same as engaging in battle with the most cunning and merciless of adversaries. It is not only possible, but also essential to engage markets with the skills and instincts of an elite warrior. Odds of success can be insurmountable. In order to prevail, one must be equally cunning. Before committing to battle, it is essential that one is adequately prepared. In this article, we will outline three essential attributes one must acquire prior to engagement.

300 is a 2007 film adaptation of the graphic novel 300 by Frank Miller, about the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. In this b attle, an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian Empire army at the pass of Thermopylae in central Greece . Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held back the Persians for three days in one of history's most famous last stands. As a city-state devoted to military training, Sparta possessed the most formidable army in the Greek world. The Spartan Warriors possessed extraordinary strength, courage, and ingenuity. When brute strength did not suffice, they used their wits to prevail over their adversaries.
