Today, let us briefly address sentiment – what it is, what it means and how to use it in your everyday trading. There is no piece of market data that is more misused, misunderstood or misapplied than sentiment. The spark for today’s diatribe was a State Street study of cash allocations in investment portfolios. The…Read More

Investing/Trading Rules, Aphorisms & Books (Summer 2014)

A few years ago, I started pulling together my favorite Trading Rules & Aphorisms. It turned out to be a popular post, and so we added “Rules” as a new category. Since then, I have taken to updating this sporadically (see this).

We are overdue for an update.  What follows are the smartest and most insightful perspectives from traders, analysts, economists and investors on what to do — and what not to do — when it comes to markets that have been previously published on TBP.

Here is the latest update:

Why Is It So Hard to Call a Market Top?

Each morning, I go through a similar routine: I wake up (no alarm clock), go to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee (this is my machine of choice lately), launch a script that opens 40 or so Firefox tabs. As part of my morning research, I quickly scan this series of websites to…Read More
