In 2008 and possibly into 2009, all asset classes may come under pressure. The bull market from 2003-2007 was aided greatly by easy access to credit, which helped drive up prices in almost all asset classes (stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities, gold, art, classic cars). As credit contracts and individuals, banks, and numerous corporations attempt to shore up their balance sheets due to falling asset prices, the odds are stacked against investors.

A pilot usually gets a plane to gain altitude by pulling back on the controls to raise the plane’s nose, which directs more engine thrust upward and causes the plane to climb. But as student pilots quickly learn, there is a limit. While raising the plane’s nose causes the plane to climb, it also induces a type of drag that causes the plane to slow down. As a plane slows down, it becomes progressively more difficult to maintain the lift needed to get the plane into a climb. Eventually, the induced drag is so large that it overwhelms the impact of raising the nose, so that pulling back on the controls does the opposite of ... market research, surveys and trends

Mebane Faber quantifies the effects on gross returns of applying simple momentum/trend following  rules to U.S. equity industry and global asset class portfolios. His “intent is to describe some simple methods that an everyday investor can use to implement momentum models in trading.” Momentum rankings derive from trailing total returns over intervals ranging from one to twelve months, as well as a combination of multiple intervals. Using monthly levels of ten value-weighted U.S. equity industries spanning July 1926 through December 2009 and of global asset classes spanning 1973-2009, he concludes that: Momentum ... market research, surveys and trends

What's a communication strategy?
Communication does not "just happen." Effective communication requires effective strategy - a coherent plan of action. To be effective, strategy must take three factors into account simultaneously: Your goals and objectives; Operational constraints and imperatives - things you must do and things you cannot do; Pertinent conditions in the environment. When your objectives involve communicating with others (when do they not?), the most pertinent environmental conditions consist of the ideas that your publics have about you and your objectives. It is sometimes said that "perception is reality." More to the point: Your publics' ...
Are discretionary fund managers (DFMs) the answer to a financial ...
Active fund management in general is a zero sum game so it follows that both multi manager and discretionary fund management is unlikely to add anything for the end clients. The only use I can see for it (and one which I have benn considering) is to ease the administration of simple passive asset allocation portfolios. An adviser with discretionary powers would be able to switch between two index trackers with the same mandate where one offers a significant reductioon in fees without the need to get individual client approval. Equally, if a portfolio is agreed as requiring (say) 50% cash and 50% UK Equity discretionary powers ...
