While trends differ in size, global supertrends can cover several decades and in some cases, span generations. And in this article I will look at 20 possible supertrends and how investors might benefit from them.
Recently, a reader questioned the trading systems that are presented in my book and course. I do not actually know whether they bought the book or the course or not but they emailed me to say that none of the trading systems presented work.
I just published an article on Seeking Alpha about one of the stocks in my portfolio; Alliance Resource Partners $ARLP. ARLP is an Eastern MLP coal company that has been able to raise it’s distribution every quarter since 2007. This coal stock has had an impressive rise since the financial crisis, gaining over 300%. However […]
I have spoken before that I am a fan of the Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) method for investing in stocks. Particularly as a way to invest a regular stream of income. In this article I present a new take on the traditional DCA approach and suggest a way investors can further improve their returns. I […]
Last week’s picks*: VA: PKG -0.92% SS: CTXS +1.58% MR: FF +4.78% TF: SNDK -1.89% Stock markets looked shaky for long periods last week but they ended on a positive note on Friday sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average up by over 1%.

Today’s post was going to be about trading systems but half way through writing it my nine month old MacBook Pro decided to freeze and give up completely. Hard disk failure seems to be the cause — and for the second time in a couple of months; which gives the impression that there’s something more serious going on. A […]
Small cap stocks, or stocks with low volume, can be attractive for some traders who are looking for companies that the rest of the market might be ignoring.

Last week was another good one for US stock markets, in fact US equities had their best August since 2000 and it was the best monthly performance since February. That took the S&P 500 to another record close past the 2,000 level while the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq also remained strong. This week […]
