NewsFlashr Editor’s Picks for December 3

Dec 3, 2009: 3:19 PM CST

Included are this week’s “Editor’s Picks” from the NewsFlashr Business Blog aggregator site.

1.  From Mish’s Global Economic Analysis, a graph on the S&P 500 and Sentiment entitled “Bears in Hibernation.” “Bearish sentiment is the lowest in two years and I am also told at lows seen only 3 times in the last 25 years.”

2.  Two recent posts from Dr. Steenbarger of Trader Feed:

“Are You Prepared to Win?”

“Why Traders Keep Losing Money.”

3.  A lengthy but informative guest post published at Trader’s Narrative entitled “What do Rates Rising from Zero Mean for Equities?”

4.  I wanted to highlight two posts John Forman of the Essentials of Trading:

SFO Article on Part-Time Trading

Taxes, Budget Deficit, and Inflation

5.  I wanted to highlight three posts over the last week from Rob Hanna at Quantifiable Edges – one interesting take on breadth:

Friday Breadth is So Negative… it Might Even Be Positive” (he was right)

Interview with Charles Kirk at the Kirk Report

Thoughts on Recent Gap Activity

6.  From the Technical Take, a quick chart that compares Gold Prices, Gold Sentiment, and Currencies. “From a sentiment perspective, extremes have yet to be reached.”

7.  The Tischendorf Letter published quotes from Alan Farley on the “Five Riskiest Market Scenarios” (or, as I call it, the “Five Bads!”)

8.  From the website Emerging Index, a current look at the top performing international ETFs (can also use as a reference for Country ETF symbols).


Dov of SMB Training posted on “Adding a Dose of Patience to your Trading” (excellent!)

“G-Man” of SMB Training appeared recently on StockTwits TV to discuss Adjustment to Changing Market Conditions, Taking Time off, and Current Strategies.

The Big Picture shows charts that answer the question “What do Online Sales Look Like this Year?
