It’s tempting to study and learn more about bull markets – the how’s and why’s of booming investment success. The investor’s goal of course is to implement what he learns into his own portfolio. Until recently, however, far less attention has been paid to bear markets. The recession has inspired more people to look for the lessons behind the wreckage, perhaps to better fortify themselves against future downturns. So today, we will turn our attention to 10 lessons any consumer or investor can absorb from the current and maddeningly long bear market. By this point, most everyone has seen the confrontation

These trends are classified as secular trends for long time frames, primary trends for medium time frames, and secondary trends lasting short times. Traders identify market trends using technical analysis , a framework which characterizes market trends as a predictable price response of the market at levels of price support and price resistance, varying over time. The terms bull market and bear market describe upward and downward market trends, respectively, and can be used to describe either the market as a whole or specific sectors and ...
A Simple Plan: Buying Stocks at a discount to the market
Sounds like it should be a title for a movie, doesn’t it? With all seriousness though you can and should be using this strategy especially in a nasty bear market. Lets face it, who really knows when we are at the bottom? Stocks that look like a bargain today can have their values halved in a short period of time. Does that mean you sit on the sidelines and wait for a recovery? The answer is yes, but that is a lot easier said than done. Very few people will invest at the bottom of the market. In fact most people wait till it’s too late to get into the market. With this simple plan you wont have to wait, and you wont ... market research, surveys and trends
Secular Bear Market, Secular Bull Market, Bull and Bear Market
In that article, attempting to illustrate what he views as the absurd psychology of the stock market, Carnevale describes a scene at an imaginary Walmart where the manager announces on the PA system that all items in the store are now selling at a 10% discount, only to have everyone run from the store in a panic. The manager quickly wises up and runs out to the parking lot to let everyone know that prices are now 10% higher instead of 10% lower. Everyone rushes back into the store. For Carnevale, such reactions makes no sense, especially if one is a long term investor . For long term investors, it�s the earnings of the ... market research, surveys and trends


Bear Market Investing
It’s a lesson learned many times over in recent years: buy on the dips. For the past two decades, every time the market took a significant fall, investors who bought on the dip were soon were rewarded with a profitable bounce. But the year 2000 taught investors a new lesson: there are no sure things in the stock market. With few exceptions the Dow blue chip stocks were anemic and the NASDAQ was abysmal. Anyone who spent the past year buying tech stocks on the dips knows now what’s it like to be kicked right in the assets. Instead of the dip and bounce, it was the dip, double-dip, and triple-dip. Investors lost a whopping $5 ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Alan, Ben, My Fed Model, And Why Stocks Are Cheap
As investors know, stock prices are influenced by a complex array of information.  The price of any single stock in isolation is affected by its current and projected earnings, the degree of reliability of those projections, its balance sheet, its dividend or prospect of a dividend, the relative attractiveness of alternative investments and many more factors.  Thus there will always be a wide disparity in the price/earnings ratios for the stocks of the various public companies.  However, when we examine the stock market as a whole, there emerges a consistency that is not evident among individual companies. On December 5 th 1996, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
A generation of investors is being lost
That's the question the head of the world's largest mutual fund company asked in a speech last week. William McNabb, president and chief executive of the Vanguard Group, told an audience at the Morningstar Investor Conference in Chicago that a growing number of Americans are unwilling to invest in stocks or stock funds because their faith in the financial system has crumbled. "We are on the brink of losing a generation of young investors," McNabb said. "As I talk with young people, I hear it. They don't like this volatility." And their belief in the system has been shaken by everything from the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

H102 Lecture 18: The Crash and the Great Depression
In 1929, Yale University economist Irving Fisher stated confidently: "The nation is marching along a permanently high plateau of prosperity." Five days later, the bottom dropped out of the stock market and ushered in the Great Depression, the worst economic downturn in American history. Although Americans often believe that the Crash was the starting point of the Great Depression, many historians point out that it wasn't the sole cause. This lecture examines the roots of the Crash and the effect of the Great Depression on the American public. Some questions to keep in mind: Why were ...

Why is the stock market called a Bull or Bear market? - Yahoo! Answers
The precise origin of the phrases "bull market" and "bear market" is obscure. The most common etymology points to London bearskin "jobbers" (brokers), who would sell bearskins before the bears had actually been caught in contradiction of the proverb ne vendez pas la peau de l'ours avant de l’avoir tué ("don't sell the bearskin before you've killed the bear")—an admonition against over-optimism. By the time of the South Sea Bubble of 1721, the bear was also associated with short selling; jobbers would sell bearskins they did not own in anticipation of falling prices, which would enable them to buy them ...
