Although it won’t last fever, at the moment the behavior of the stock market is very bullish. For the second day in a row, U.S. stocks...

It Doesn’t Have to Be That Difficult

Posted by on Apr 20, 2016 in ETF Strategist, Investment Perspective

By Roger Nusbaum, AdvisorShares ETF Strategist   I am writing this post on a plane headed to Milan (trip of a lifetime, more down below). We are sitting in a small two row section right behind business class. The configuration of the plane is two-three-two.

There is chaos with their kids, some sort of bassinet issue, who knows what is going on with what seems like nine pieces...

He regularly contributes to AlphaBaskets and lends his institutional insight to educate advisors and investors about commodities and the forex markets, including about trading gold in different currency terms.   In Europe there is growing enmity between Germany and the ECB, or more properly between the ruling German political party… The Christian Democrats…and Mr. Draghi.
