Dead Man’s Curve - Let's Hear it for Brain Damage / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Let’s hear it for brain damage. The Journal of Economic Literature reported that with regard to investments “frontal damage can result in superior decisions,” in the article “Neuroeconomics: How Neuroscience Can Inform Economic".

At least that is what the authors—Colin Camerer of the California Institute of Technology’s Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences, George Loewenstein of Carnegie Mellon’s Department of Social and Decision Sciences, and Drazen Prelec of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloane School of Management—believe, even though such damage results in poorer overall decision-making ability.

Double Your Stock Trading Profit Opportunities / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: In their effort to capture all the profit they can, many investors focus exclusively on buying stocks. That's too bad because it means they're missing out on half the profits - literally.

I say that because the markets move in two directions - up and down - which means there's plenty of profits to be had in both directions.

The "$5 Rule" Stock Investing Rule Gives You a Powerful Edge over Goldman Sachs Traders / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Money_Morning

Robert Hsu writes: We hear it all the time, this notion that professional traders at top-tier Wall Street firms like Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and HSBC have tremendous advantages over smaller, individual investors.

The system is rigged...

Too-big-to-failbankers are getting richer at the expense of the little guy...

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: On Monday, we covered some of the worst investment ideas in Forbes‘ 2014 Investment Guide.

Short Selling - The Worst Trade You Can Make / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: Last week, The Wall Street Journal ran an article titled “Tough Year for Short Sellers.”

I’ll say…

Short sellers bet that stocks will fall rather than rise. You already know, for instance, that if you buy a stock at $20 and sell it at $25, you make $5 a share. But if you short a stock at $25 and buy it back at $20, you also make $5 a share. However, this has been an awfully difficult game to play this year.

Investing - Can You Have Too Much of a Good Thing? / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Don_Miller

I have received numerous emails from subscribers asking about individual stocks and how much they should buy. While I am not licensed to give individualized advice, each time I read these questions, the experiences shared seem eerily similar to my own.

, Back in 2008 many retirees had their CDs called in overnight. They had a large amount of cash and an urgent need to do something to recover the 6%, low-risk income that no longer existed. Many thought moving all of their capital into the stock market was all that they needed to do. Oh boy, they were in for a surprise.

How to Spot High-Confidence Trading Opportunities Using Moving Averages / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: EWI

The moving average is a technical indicator which has stood the test of time. It's been 27 years since Robert Prechter described this vital tool in his famous essay, "What a Trader Really Needs to be Successful." What he said then remains true today:

A simple 10-day moving average of the daily advance-decline net, probably the first indicator a stock market technician learns, can be used as a trading tool, if objectively defined rules are created for its use.

What is a moving average? Here's how EWI's Jeffrey Kennedy puts it:

Common Investing Mistakes to Avoid / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Money_Morning

Garrett Baldwin writes: It's been a great year for investors who stayed in the market, and stayed disciplined. The S&P 500 is up more than 25% on the year, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 21%.

But making money isn't just about finding stocks/investments that will increase in price. It also involves avoiding the common investing mistakes that prevent retail investors from enjoying record-high markets.

The Investment Rule of 72 for Successful Stock Market Investing / 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, mainly over the last decade, many retirement portfolios have become under-funded at best, or, at worst, totally bust. This situation is a direct result of the managed funds having been speculated rather than invested. Many cynics will say that the whole investment environment today has more of the characteristics of a casino than of a professional market of equities and, therefore, they doubt that one can ever achieve a faithful and fair return on capital. However, this view is erroneous. This essay sets out to explain how to achieve superior stock market investment returns through a simple yet powerful investment rule: “the rule of 72”. This rule is based on investment and not speculation yet if you faithfully apply it your returns, over time, will be worthwhile. Many believe that such degree of return is only possible through “speculative activity”. They are wrong and I will explain.

How to Trade in Currency Markets with Harmonic Chart Patterns / InvestorEducation / Technical Analysis

By: Submissions

Brett Chatz writes: One of the biggest challenges facing traders in the currency market is that of identifying future patterns or trends which may develop. Fortunately, some pretty useful methods have been developed using technical analysis and fundamental analysis. No method is fool proof and no method provides 100% certainty as to future market movements. However in the trading arena, it’s probabilities that investors are looking for. The higher the probability that an event is likely to occur the better.
