Stock Market’s Lost Decade

Stocks for the past 10 years have moved up and down and have reached no where after much heartache. Was it worth to take the risk? Was the stress worth it? What should we do next? Will the stocks embark on the next bull market if we sit on the sidelines? What is the risk? Or is it going to be another decade of lackluster results?

“Lost decade.”

The phrase originally applied to Japan’s stock market. Yet in terms of depth and scale, it more accurately describes today’s markets and economy in the United States.

This became clearer than ever September 21, when CNNMoney ran an article titled “A Rough 10 Years for the Middle Class.” Given the data it reported, somebody’s rose-colored glasses must have substituted the word “rough” for the more honest “dreadful.”

Just when investors thought the stock market’s 50% drop in 2007-2009 was behind them, wham, the Dow dropped 2000 points within a short two-week period this summer. And since then, it’s a daily guessing game as to which way the market will go and how large the swings will be.

What does all this mean for you and your investments?

What Personality Type Makes the Best Stock Trader?

Posted in Stock Market

EWI’s Jeffrey Kennedy shows you how your psychological strengths and weaknesses determine your ability to “live long and prosper” in fast-moving markets

By Elliott Wave International

Do your decisions rely on data, or do you go with your gut?  

Think about your most recent auto purchase. Was it based on meticulous consumer research or did you go with a model that “felt right”?  

How about the last time you had to assemble something? Did you read the manual first or just figure it out as you went?  

What about your most recent successful stock market trade?

Consistent trading success demands independent thinking and emotional discipline.

Jeffrey Kennedy, our Chief Commodity Analyst and highly-respected tutorial instructor, says:

I just cannot stress enough how you have to manage your emotions whenever you’re on [a] position.

Field dependence can sabotage you unknowingly when you’re trading, because you’ll see a trade signal, the trade will be there, but “it just won’t feel right.”

[It’s] one of those things that can sabotage us if we’re not aware of it, or, more importantly, [don’t] have a well-defined methodology and the discipline to follow it.

In footage from his trading course in Las Vegas, he goes on to discuss the psychological profile that makes “the best trader:”
