Stock Market Blog: Short Takes on Investing

Short Takes is a stock market blog covering topics related to the stock market, such as technical analysis, economic reviews, and financial models. You can fine the most recent research and blog posts here. As a stock market blog, Short Takes allows readers to access information about the stock market that might not be available elsewhere. Blogs, especially in the financial arena, are growing rapidly. Stock market participants are in search of better and more up to date information as they try to navigate an increasingly difficult market environment.

A stock market blog can help investors understand the big picture of the financial market landscape. A blog is an Internet site that is updated on a regular basis, sometimes as many as three times per day of stock market conditions are volatile. Our blog, Short Takes, was developed primarily as a way to efficiently communicate with our existing market clients, especially those who own stocks. Many stock market blogs focus exclusively on stocks. Short Takes covers stocks, bonds, commodities, and currencies, which gives stock market investors a much broader scope of information.

Blogs which cover the financial markets vary widely in terms of their scope of knowledge and expertise. Short takes covers technical analysis of the stock market, using an educational approach. A stock is typically evaluated primarily based on the fundamentals, things like earnings, market share, and barriers to entry into their particular market.

Our blog extends our evaluation of stocks beyond the individual company or individual stock. The blog starts with a macro, or big picture, view of the economic and financial market landscape. Market participants must understand the general health of the current market. Are we in a bull market, where stock prices have a rising trend? Or are we in a bear market, where the odds favor lower market prices?

Financial market models can assist stock market investors with complex assessments of the market's general health. There are many resources on the web for stock market blogs, including:

The stock blogosphere is littered with options for stock market participants. Some blogs are written with a fundamental slant and include company reviews, earnings updates, and interviews with management. Other blogs tend to focus on the market, with a more quantitative, or numerical slant. In either case, there is probably a stock market blog out there that can meet your needs as am investor.
