The Difference Between Stock Market Investment and Speculation / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Christopher_Quigley

The issue of successful stock market investment affects us all. Even if we are not directly engaged in the industry, all of us will need some form of pension to fund our retirement. Whether we like it or not most of our retirement funds will find their way into the financial markets. For this very reason, the issue of pensions has moved politically centre stage, in particular the investment strategies used to direct pension funds. Due to mismanagement over the last seven years, many retirement portfolios have become under-funded at best, or, at worst, totally bust.

Dow Theory Introduction and Basic Tenets / InvestorEducation / Dow Theory

By: Christopher_Quigley

The Dow theory has been around for almost 100 years. Developed by Charles Dow and refined by William Hamilton, many of the ideas put forward by these two men have become axioms of Wall Street.

Background:
Charles Dow developed the Dow theory from his analysis of market price action in the late 19th. Century. Until his death in 1902, Dow was part owner as well as editor of the Wall Street Journal. Even though Charles Dow is credited with initiating Dow theory, it was S.A. Nelson and William Hamilton who later refined the theory into what it is today. In 1932 Robert Rhea further refined the analysis. Rhea studied and deciphered some 252 editorials through which Dow and Hamilton conveyed their thoughts on the market.

By: John_Mauldin

Many analysts and investors alike rely heavily on the P/E ratio as a metric to determine the value of a stock, indices or other form of security.

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.
