The markets are twisted, but are there bargins to be found?

Feb 13 2012 @ 05:20
Its all well and good writing investment books and being a pundit on global economics, but can you make money investing? So how is this euro crisis working out for me then? Having bailed a little bit late in the summer slump yet still missing a large chunk of the actual fall and all of […]

Permanent “bullish” or “bearish” positions are simply not useful

Feb 08 2012 @ 05:21
From a markets perspective, rarely is the eternal pessimist – i.e the investor currently thinking the world is going to hell in a hand basket – correct. Permanent “bullish” or “bearish” positions are simply not useful. In investment, you must be able to swing from happy to sad. Doing so is essential if you are […]

Facebook - you have to love their IPO!

Feb 02 2012 @ 05:21
You have to love Facebook and their IPO. They may not have yet monetised their massive usage on their site, but at $100 a user they surely will have monetised their traffic on Wall Street. Some details: • Facebook plans to raise $5bn in IPO, but this could rise • Company made $1bn of profit […]

Looking at the FTSE and Dow, have the markets gone back to normal?

Jan 30 2012 @ 05:21
There are conflicting signals in the market. 2011’s summer slump was meant to have been caused by European economic uncertainty and the possibility of the Eurozone’s violent implosion. Yet the crisis seems far from being resolved, whilst the markets, at least outside of the euro core, have recovered much of the lost ground. Does this […]

Were you brave enough to buy equities in the euro crisis?

Jan 26 2012 @ 05:22
Anyone brave enough to have bought equities in the pit of euro crisis anxiety is looking pretty clever. The markets of Europe and the U.S. have been rallying hard since the euro summit.It was agreed that most of EU countries would tie themselves tighter together for the sake of their common currency. Pundits don’t seem […]

Do we live in free market or a rigged market?

Jan 25 2012 @ 05:22
What should an investor be doing right now? The answer is to examine the basics. What are the key elements that make up the investing environment? Firstly, this is not a free market situation anymore. We are operating in a rigged market. That sounds bad, but it’s not as bad as you think. The market […]

Bulls and Bears: Timing is Everything

Jan 20 2012 @ 05:23
The funny thing about the markets and crashes in particular, is that most people get the timing of everything wrong. The latest symptom of this is the completely bogus statement that a bear market is one that has already fallen 20%; this is like saying an accident happens when the participants are admitted to A&E. […]

Currency and Bonds driving the markets

Jan 18 2012 @ 05:23
Everyone is a great investor in a bull market and it has been tough to be a genius in the last few months for sure. As such, I’ve been as quiet as a church mouse when it comes to buying. Stocks I have bought have halved and then doubled in a frustrating pattern, but all […]

What counts as Capitalism in 2012?

Jan 16 2012 @ 05:28
Can an economy that spends more on the individual than they earn, which takes almost all GDP for its purposes, really be considered a capitalist system at all? It is not surprising that the new capitalist countries of the developing world are catching up fast. Even against a background of a depressed global economy are […]
