One of the challenges of watching the stock market on a daily basis is filtering out the noise of day-to-day market fluctuations.

Concerns about a slowing global economy have persisted for a number of months now, and while U.S. stocks have risen nicely through most of the year, in the last month or so their rally from a pre-Christmas low has seemingly been capped by persistent concerns about the slowing global economy.

The market’s rally from a low point on Christmas Eve last year has given a lot of investors reason to think that the worst of the correction before that, which tested bear market territory for all of the major market indices, is probably done.

APA shows why a rising tide may not always lift all ships

If you spend a couple of minutes talking to anybody that has invested in the stock market for very long, you’ll almost inevitably hear them throw out a few of their favorite idioms. That’s because while sometimes they seem simplistic, obvious, or perhaps even a little silly, the truth is that many of them are […]
