What is the VIX and what is it good for?
While trading in highly volatile markets leaves most investors holding onto their seats, daring speculators have the opportunity to capitalize on Wall Street’s fear and rake in big bucks. How do they do it? One way is to trade the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index, the VIX. As investors expect wild movements in the stock market, options typically become more expensive—and the VIX measures by how much. After surging upward in October, the VIX climbed to an all-time closing high of 80.86 on Nov. 20 when the Standard and Poor’s 500 Stock Index dropped to 752.44, its lowest close since 1997.

A.I think that the removal of Hips has definitely been a positive thing because people just don’t like putting their hands in their pockets and paying for something up-front with no guarantee of a sale. Since they have been abolished, a lot of sellers are able test the water and see what interest there is in their property without actually having to pay around £200 to get the Hip completed. Previously, an estate agent could not legally market a property until the Hip had been set up. This put off sellers who wanted to market their property quietly. Now people don’t have to fully market the property if they don’t want to and can ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Sample Chapter for Harrington, B.: Pop Finance: Investment Clubs ...
Much that can be said about the spirit of the 1990s in America can be encapsulated in the publication of three books in rapid succession between May and September 1999: Dow 36,000 ; Dow 40,000 ; and Dow 100,000 . Issued by three different publishers, and written by three different sets of authors, each book vied to be the most optimistic about the upward trajectory of U.S. stocks. Though we might now wish to shelve these books in the science fiction section of the library, at the time their ideas were treated quite seriously and discussed earnestly in almost every public news forum you could name.

The biggest pitfall of shorting, as I understand it, is that your potential losses are not limited by your initial investment: theoretically, the stock could just keep going up and up, ...
