Apr 10th, 2014 | By brinvest | Category: WallStreetWindow

Topics: Stock Market News The stock market has had a bit of a pullback in March. The Nasdaq and so called "momentum" stocks like Facebook and Yelp got smashed. So people are a little nervous and they have a good reason to be. The stock market has been in a five year long bull market and is wildly overvalued with a cyclically adjusted P/E ratio over 25. All bull markets eventually come to an end. There has been internal deterioration in the market sectors in what ... [more]

This is important, because those sectors that ... [more]

Apr 8th, 2014 | By brinvest | Category: WallStreetWindow

Topics: Stock Trading StrategiesLast week I did a lengthy video about the risks that high frequency trading brings to the stock market. After the flash crash of 2010, in which the DOW fell roughly 1,000 points during the day and then came back on the close, regulators and Congress did a quick investigation to see what happened. They blamed high frequency trading as being partly responsible. It was clear to me as it was happening that some sort of computer trading had ... [more]

Apr 7th, 2014 | By brinvest | Category: WallStreetWindow

Topics: Stock Market NewsAfter Friday's drop in the stock market some of its viewers are worried. The last thing CNBC wants is for people to get disgusted with the stock market, because if they do they may stop watching.

Where I live there has been no economic recovery to ... [more]

Apr 4th, 2014 | By brinvest | Category: WallStreetWindow

Topics: Stock Market News In my monthly newsletter for April I said that this was going to be a very difficult time for the typical American investor who merely follows the herd. Today shows why. The herd had a good year last year, but now the herd is getting dangerous. It has wracked up record margin debt and now merely chases what is hot at the moment. It is not doing real investing based on buying some that ... [more]

I do not want to be linked to such people or attract them. Nor do I intend to do a lot of writing about this myself. But I want to bring up the topic to make you aware of it. This post ... [more]

Apr 3rd, 2014 | By brinvest | Category: WallStreetWindow

Topics: Stock Market NewsIt's easy to poke fun at James Cramer, because at least a few times a year he appears to go totally crazy on TV. It could simply be an imbalance in psychotic medication he takes. One suppressed insider book by a former employee of his claimed he took them. And it wouldn't be shocking if he does as statistics show that well over 1 out of 4 Americans are prescribed them. So there are millions of ... [more]
