Here’s a portion of the links I compiled for the NewsFlashr Business Blog Editor’s Picks this week (which are selected from the Business Blog section of NewsFlashr) with a few extra links here.

Barry Ritholtz lists the “Six Errors” as written by Princeton Professor Alan Blinder (along with original source) and shares some of his thoughts. Six Ideological Errors that Led the Financial Crisis

Dr. Steenbarger lists key points and aspects short-term traders should keep in mind – watch the bigger picture of how markets relate to one another and how large participants and factors (affecting supply and demand) actually move markets. Macro-Perspectives for Short-Term Traders

I also wanted to highlight two other recent posts by Dr. Steenbarger:

Also, Five Pitfalls to Avoid in Jobs with Proprietary Trading Firms – for those successful at-home traders who want to step up to trading larger size.

Mish (Global Economic Trend Analysis) asks and tries to answer the question, “Is Big Inflation Coming?”  Worth the read.
