  • When Does a Dead Cat Bounce? - 29 August 2008

  • Volatile Market Defies Old-Favorite Investment Strategies - 25 August 2008
  • The volatility of the market since October 2007, and more specifically during the past few weeks, has vividly illustrated that investor favorites of the past can no longer be relied upon and a varied investment portfolio is the wisest way to go. Many analysts have had to adjust their views as it has become apparent that the global market is not immune to the woes of the U.S. economy, oil prices can be dramatically influenced by changes in demand, and small-cap funds, which are generally avoided in tough times, are turning out to be a good investment choice.
