High Frequency Trading & Stock Market Crashes - Mike Swanson (04/8/2014)

The US stock market is extremely overvalued with a CAPE ratio over 25 and five years into a bull market. As a result I believe that if a "flash crash" event were to happen again that it WOULD NOT quickly come back like it did in 2010.

How To Find The Best Sectors In The Stock Market - Mike Swanson (08/19/2013)

I got an email from someone asking me how I find the best sectors in the stock market. What I do is look to see which sectors hold up the best or even go up while the broad market pulls back.

They are consolidating and in a position to breakout and have a big run. Ireland has already broken out and is just floating on up.
