Crescenzi provides more than fifty tools for analyzing domestic and international trends and ...

He has contributed several chapters to Investing From the Top Down: A Macro Approach to Capital Markets (by Anthony Crescenzi). This is his most recent commentary: ~~~ Attached is a chart of the S&P from the peak in 1929 until 1954. There are two things to observe.

What can we expect for the remainder of the year? The Standard & Poor's 500-stock index fell 1 percent on June 30 to finish the second quarter with a 12 percent loss (following a 4.9 percent gain in the first quarter, it was down 7.6 percent for the first half). The S&P 500 broke a four-quarter winning streak that drove the large-cap index up 47 percent. Late in the June 30 trading session, the S&P 500 hit a low at 1,028.33, the lowest ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
