Common Sense Indicators For Making Money Investing / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Investmentscore.com

Should we add to our metals positions?  To help answer this question we ask ourselves important questions such as "what does the end of a bull market look like"?  Clearly gold and silver have been in a bull market as their prices have roughly tripled from their lows earlier this decade.  So we want to know, 'What would the end of a mega bull market look like?' to help us gain confidence in our decisions today.  If we are in a bull market in precious metals are we likely at the end of this current bull-run? 

Before we continue let us clarify that there are no absolute rules to the financial markets and we are only providing our opinion, however we have found that with common sense analysis and research our probability of successful and profitable investing is greatly improved.

Traders - Get a Mental Edge to Avoid Tripping Yourself Up! / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: Nazy_Massoud

Have you been in situations where you had several winning trades which were wiped out by one losing trade?

Have these become a pattern?

Like some of my clients, you may be saying, “I have spent hours creating my plan.” Then you start the day with every intention of following it. After a few losing trades, you lose your control and with that, your plans go out the window. You try to make up for your losses by chasing after deals and increasing the size of your trades. So you get in at the wrong entry point and the size does not warrant the risk.

How to Select and Trade Stocks and Shares / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre you interested in trading in the stock markets? Do you have questions about getting started? You are certainly not alone. Almost weekly I hear from ordinary folks with basic questions about trading stocks. After addressing these on a consulting basis for years, I'll outline some of the basics in this essay.

The Rewards of Stock Trading
Trading stocks is an incredibly rewarding journey. Everyone is intrigued by the stock markets because traders can make big money there. This is certainly true. But the potentially extraordinary financial winnings are not the most gratifying part of trading stocks. The best part is really the endless learning and personal growth that trading naturally generates. Trading is a most-fascinating voyage of discovery.

Understanding Warrants / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Dudley_Baker

Did you know that warrants have been in existence for many decades but very few investors know about them? Why? Unfortunately, very few of the professional newsletter writers and analysts understand them so they do not write about them. Are warrants that difficult to understand? Of course not; it's just that one needs to take some time to learn and understand this incredible investment vehicle.

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you have ever wanted your child to study Technical Analysis so that they can become a millionaire like you, instead of maybe ending up living off you for half their lives and bringing their washing home etc, but have not summoned up the courage to attempt to introduce the subject to them, because of fears of their eyes glazing over when confronted with lots of squiggly lines and a barrage of esoteric indicators, now is your chance because even a 7-year old can grasp what we are going to look at in this article today.

Being in the right sectors will make a significant difference in the performance of your portfolio. However, finding the right sector can be a difficult proposition.

Conditional Formatting and its Application to Technical Analysis (AMEX Gold BUGS Index as an Example) / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: David_Petch

Carl Swenlin stated “Technical analysis is a wind sock, not a crystal ball”. This is probably one of the most eloquent and precise definitions I have ever seen because it goes deeper than the sentence itself. Provided the wind is blowing from the north, the windsock will indicate that until the wind changes direction. When the wind direction changes, individuals can note this and be confident that the wind hitting their house is coming from a direction specified by the windsock.

Asset Class Behavior Following Fed Interest Rate Cuts - Part 4 of 4 / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEditor's Note: This article is Part IV in a four-part series.

Expanding the Analysis to Other Asset Classes

In Part III of this four-part series, I concluded the periods following the first Fed rate cut in July 1995, September 1998, and January of 2001 were most similar to today's economic landscape. We can use the information from Part III as one of many factors when determining our asset allocation for the coming year. The next logical step is to explore how different asset classes performed relative to each other in each of the three respective historical periods (1995-1996, 1998-1999, 2001-2002).

Lower Interest Rates and the Relative Performance of Investments - Part 3 of 4 / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo recap the main points :

  • Wall Street places a strong emphasis on the impact of the Fed’s actions on asset prices.
  • Lower interest rates help fuel inflation and hurt the U.S. dollar.
  • The current Fed is not afraid to make significant interest rate cuts and we can expect them to act swiftly in the face of any continued deterioration in housing, financial markets, or the general economy.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week in Outside the Box, good friend and London business partner Niels C. Jensen further expands upon the fat tail dilemma I recently discussed in my "Black Swan" e-letter and why many of the risk metrics we use while in theory are useful, in application are woefully misleading.

Contrary Stock Market Investing / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGood businesses are what I like to buy. That means stocks, bonds, preferred shares and other securities backed by healthy, growing companies, which are becoming more valuable over time.

Even buying good businesses won't save you entirely from bear markets. The best companies can and do occasionally stumble. And no matter how well you research something, you're going to get it wrong sometimes—with the result that you're stuck with a dog.
