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.

Quantifying and Forecasting an Equity Risk Factor: Fixing the Inaccurate So-Called Fed Model / InvestorEducation / Stock Market Valuations

By: Bob_Bronson

... and Why the Stock Market P/E is Declining to 10
It is generally agreed that the most elegant equation in physics is E = mc 2 .  In mathematics, it is e π i +1 = 0, which most simply connects the five most important numbers in mathematics.  It is always and everywhere exact and even its most esoteric components -- the transcendental number, e, and its imaginary number, i -- are regularly used in physics and the other sciences, as well as many important fields today, including energy, computers and even valuing specialized securities.

The Genesis of Over The Counter Interest Rate Derivatives / InvestorEducation / Derivatives

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMisinformation regarding the origin and genesis of the OTC Interest Rate Derivatives complex abound in the market. 

During the 1970's – after President Nixon took the world off the gold standard - the dramatic increase in the price of crude oil led to burgeoning balances of petro dollars [Euro-dollars] in the treasuries of banks involved in international trade. This immediately led to banks bolstering their treasury operations to deal with the influx of ‘inflated dollars'.

The Elasticity of Taxable Income - How the Laffer Curve Really Works / InvestorEducation / Taxes

By: Gerard_Jackson

Let us begin with the much neglected Kennedy tax cuts and then follow through with other tax measures. We shall then finish with a diagrammatic explanation of how cuts in capital gains taxes expand both the economy and tax revenues.

Kennedy declared that “it is a paradoxical that tax rates are too high and tax revenues too low”. In other words, high taxes were depressing output. Acting on this belief — what so many today sneeringly call supply-side economics — he cut taxes in 1963 and investment surged ahead. In the four years preceding the Kennedy cuts only 27.8 per cent of what is termed investment went to business and 38.5 per cent to real estate.

Secrets of Sucessful Trading in Commodities and Financial Futures / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: George_Kleinman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, I've been reading in the financial press about how today's popular gurus are split on whether we're in the middle of a long-term bull market or bear market.

How do you know what to believe or what to do? I suggest you don't subscribe to either the bull or the bear side. As Jesse Livermore once said, “I prefer to be on the right side.”

Using Elliott Wave Theory to Forecast the Financial Markets / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: EWI

In the 1930s, Ralph Nelson Elliott , a corporate accountant by profession, studied price movements in the financial markets and observed that certain patterns repeat themselves. He offered proof of his discovery by making astonishingly accurate stock market forecasts. What appears random and unrelated, Elliott said, will actually trace out a recognizable pattern once you learn what to look for. Elliott called his discovery "The Elliott Wave Principle," and its implications were huge. He had identified the common link that drives the trends in human affairs, from financial markets to fashion, from politics to popular culture.

How To Use Leverage Wisely / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Dudley_Baker

Based on the recent action in the price of gold we have to believe that it has once again broken out to the upside and ready to run. Last week, Richard Russell presented us an excerpt from his service titled, The Box, in which he is using the point and figure method of plotting gold. The basis of the article was that if gold could close at $690 an ounce, it would be a bullish breakout. Well, guess what? It did, it has and no doubt (in our mind) will continue much higher in the coming weeks and months eventually taking out the old highs in the upper $800's. The question always for investors is what do we do? How to maximize our gains and should we use leverage?

The Risks of Doubling Down on Falling Stocks / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI know a few people who know when to double down in Blackjack. A lot more, however, lose their shirts in an emotional attempt to make back losses.

Even those who usually succeed will freely admit doubling down isn't a risk-reduction technique. On the contrary, you've got twice the money at stake, betting on the same situation. You may recoup your losses in one fell swoop. But the penalty for failure is twice what it was before, and it's hard not to get a little emotional.

Will the Stock Market PE Ratio Expand or Contract? / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Hans_Wagner

Knowing whether the PE ratio is going to expand or contract is an important factor when trying to beat the market . This is the first of a four part series on which direction the PE ratio for the S&P 500 will go over the next couple of years. First, let's briefly go over how to use the PE ratio and then we will look at ways to get the underlying PE ratio for the S&P 500. It is not as easy as one might first think. In the later parts we will examine the potential for the S&P 500 PE ratio to expand, contract and then provide an opinion on what investors should do.

Sharpening Your Stock Trading Skills / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Peter_Degraaf

Did you hear about the woodsman who, when asked by a friend how long it had been since he had his axe sharpened replied: “I just don't have the time for that”.

No matter how good a trader we may have become, we're still not perfect. Yet, perfection must always be our aim, and we must never be too busy to improve.

Options: A Three Dimensional Chess Game / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Mack_Frankfurter

"Could we look into the head of a Chess player, we should see there a whole world of feelings, images, ideas, emotion and passion." -- Alfred Binet (French Physiologist, 1857-1911)

One of my favorite pastimes is playing chess, which unfortunately I have not had the time to indulge as of late. To experience the full brunt and emotional psychology of the game try a five minute speed match against a chess hustler in Washington Square Park NYC, a mecca in the chess world. Some of those guys are FIDE rated 2200+ and you will likely walk away feeling beat-up.

The Trading Doctor - Finding Your Trading Edge : Introduction / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: Dr_Janice_Dorn

http://www.thetradingdoctor.com/updatesandalerts/images/7-11-07a.jpgThe heart and soul of trading is neurobehavioral. There is no way to deny this, as evidence continues to build that traders bring themselves and their brains into every aspect of trading. With this comes irrationality and neuropsychological biases.

The only way for a trader to succeed, i.e., perform in a consistently profitable fashion, is to have an edge. Those of you who have coached or mentored with me for any period of time will recognize immediately that I continually stress three critical elements of trading: risk control, money management and edge. What is an edge?

Managed Futures: A Model for Incubating Talent / InvestorEducation / Managed Accounts

By: Mack_Frankfurter

The idea of traders staking other traders for a slice of profits is probably as old as trading itself. Fast forward to the late 1970s and one unearths Commodity Corp. which is remembered for launching the renown careers of Michael Marcus and Bruce Kovner. And in 1983 Richard Dennis is legendary for having made a bet with William Eckhardt which led to his recruiting and training the “turtles.”

The Relative Performance Derby And Other Evils Of Modern Investment / InvestorEducation / Risk Analysis

By: John_Mauldin

This week in Outside the Box we take a gander at the always-insightful research of good friend James Montier, who poignantly addresses the pertinent topic of portfolio diversification and the pitfalls that ensue on account of benchmarking, wherein investors obsess over relative performance and their respective tracking error. James asks the question, why does the average US mutual fund hold 160 stocks, when diversification could be achieved with around 30-40 stocks. The answer in word, benchmarking.

Should Self-Sufficient Countries Trade? / InvestorEducation / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Hewitt

Countries that are self-sufficient have enough resources to meet the demands of their citizens. Such countries do not need to trade, but there is advantage to be gained by trading. These benefits are three-fold: reduced prices, a tradable surplus, and/or reduced work hours for their citizens.
