wall street in advance

When does the FOMC meet?

When is Goldman Sach's Tech Conference?

Does the market go up or down in June?

When you visit an appliance store in February, do you expect to find air conditioners or space heaters? Do you shop in summer for skis or bathing suits? Do you shop for Christmas in March or November? Investors often forget that buying stock means buying a piece of a company that sells goods and/or services. It's only logical that companies experience higher demand in some months, lower in others. Sales and earnings can't help but fluctuate with demand, as does investor enthusiasm for effected stocks. The result? Rotating corrections, also called sector rotation.
When investing, think of yourself as a shopper and the universe of stocks as mere inventory in a financial department store. Buy what's in season and sell what's not. Then take it one step further. Buy at discounted prices, just before everyone else realizes a new season is about to begin. Sell when prices are highest, before everyone else realizes the season is ending.
How can you anticipate the market's next shift in financial seasons? By understanding a few truths: First, interest rates and earnings drive markets. Second, the constant stream of economic statistics offers clues to the direction of both interest rates and the possibility of weaker or stronger than expected earnings. Lastly, new product introductions, often premiered at trade shows, can serve as the catalyst for revised earnings expectations. While earnings and economic statistical releases, as well as product introductions, strike investors as "news" when discovered, after the fact, in the morning paper or on television business shows, most of the "news" that moves markets is released on a schedule set well before the fact. The majority of announcements, as well as trade shows, occur on nearly fixed dates. An advance schedule of coming "big news" provides a crystal ball into Wall Street's next focus, the momentum players' next target, the analysts' next favorite. At the least, it can prepare investors to expect shortlived volatility, making gyrating stock prices easier to weather. WALL STREET IN ADVANCE offers investors an opportunity to anticipate a full year's worth of breaking news. Whether you're a stock picker or fund investor, you need a guide to help you harvest the superior returns of market timing. WALL STREET IN ADVANCE provides a preview to keep you one step ahead of Wall Street.
