Stocks tried to rebound with vigor in the second half of the past week, pushing the Dow Jones Industrials Average up 350 points in 27 hours, due in equal parts to favorable moves in the currency markets, short covering, mean reversion and bargain hunting.
I do not expect the former leadership of growth “story” stocks like Tesla (TSLA) to be reasserted now, much as

Interest rates are the sun around which all the other capital markets revolve. That’s one of the most important lessons I can share with you.

I managed to get a pre release copy of “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt”, Michael Lewis’s latest bestseller about high frequency trading, and plowed through it over the weekend.
In it, Lewis claims the markets are “rigged” for the ordinary investor, and they are getting ripped off, in effect, paying a giant “tax” to Wall Street to get their…

My apologies for not staying on top of posting. CFA time of year again (but, why!?).
Here is a quick routine I used to identify high quality setups in an oversold tape using Market Memory.
Step 1.
Pull a symbol.

Step 2.
Add a filter criteria. In this case, a plain old Bollinger Band. The filter criteria show up in…

Stocks remain under selling pressure this week as they have been since the start of the second-quarter of 2014. The Dow Jones Industrial Average reached a peak of 16,574 on April 4, and for the most part, it’s been downhill since then.
The selling appears to be mainly driven by institutions, the so-called “smart money” crowd persistently unloading shares in

The recent declines in stocks bring to mind a cup of cappuccino: Investors blowing the froth off the top before getting to the substance, in this case earnings reports or any real news.

I feel obliged to reveal one corner of this beleaguered market that might actually make sense.
By 2050 the population of California will soar from 38 million to 50 million, and that of the US from 300 million to 400 million, according to data released by the US Census Bureau and the CIA Fact Book (check out the population pyramid…

Three-and-a-half months into 2014, stocks — as measured by the Dow Jones Industrial Average — are down about 1 percent for the year, leaving investors disappointed, especially after 2013′s 32-percent rise.
But think about it: U.S. stocks have gained more than 170 percent from lows five years ago.
