Isn't it strange how this whole world revolves around the law of supply and demand? For those of you who are not economics majors, here is a quick lesson. If an item or service is in short supply, people will pay more for it, if the demand out-strips the supply. On the other hand, if there is an abundance of a good (supply) and there is little demand, the price will fall. For example, do you ever wonder why you pay a lot for the new Sega game console when it first comes out? It's because there ...
By providing, over short investing horizons and excluding the impact of fees and other costs, performance opposite to their benchmark, inverse ETFs give a result similar to short selling the stocks in the index. An inverse S&P 500 ETF, for example, seeks a daily percentage movement opposite that of the S&P.

Why Buy and Hold Investing Is Simple, But Not Easy » My Money Blog
The strategy of Buy & Hold Investing has a lot of followers (including me), and one of it’s touted benefits is that it is a simple way to invest. In the case of passive investors, it primarily involves picking and maintaining an asset allocation plan for the next 10-50 years of your life. No need to monitor stock prices or decipher financial statements. However, “simple” and “easy to execute” aren’t the same thing. For example, “spend less than you earn” is simple. “Always save for a rainy day” is simple. But how many people actually do this? So why ... market research, surveys and trends


Buy-and-hold investing not dead after all - Yahoo! Finance
It turns out that rumors of the death of buy-and-hold investing strategies have been greatly exaggerated. At least that's what Walt Woerheide believes when it comes to long-term strategies for individual investors who lack a crystal ball or other prognostication skills.
