It’s been an interesting couple days in the market recently. This morning, at the open, the market jumped up after being down yesterday. It’s been a volatile last few weeks, which isn’t unusual if we’re talking about all of market history. If anything it just makes the daily “why’s” of the market seem even more…entertaining.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Walking Away’ – Fervent Finance
- Kevin spills some great insight into his home-buying process and offers some valuable lessons to take with you into your next home-buying endeavor.
‘Don’t Fall For a Good Story’ – Daniel Sotiroff – Morningstar
- Good stories with stocks lead to speculation and sometimes very poor decisions. Daniel outlines wonderfully why to be wary of good stories.
‘Time Dilation’ – Corey Hoffstein – Newfound Research
- Using constant time horizons to analyze market data might give too much insight into calm market environments, and not enough into chaotic ones. Corey offers a different approach to sample market prices.
‘Generational Buying Opportunity’ – Douglas A. Boneparth – Bone Fide Wealth
- Highlighting a ‘generational buying opportunity’ is a rather insensitive way to think about the pain and destruction the bottom of a terrible economic cycle can be.
