CMC Markets 11/11/2014 | The Australian share market is in a decision zone - and trading from here may set the direction for the rest of the year.

Prices slashed - everything must go!

Nick Swales, Regional Director, Newcastle Office, Rathbones 27/10/2014 | “If you want to have a better performance than the crowd, you must do things differently from the crowd.” Sir John Templeton.

Aussie share market bulls now have company

Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) 20/10/2014 | Today, Australian investors will not have to go it alone buying stocks as they did for much of last week. Bargain hunters this morning will be supported by the morale boosting encouragement of a 3% turnaround in the German Dax and a 264 point rally in the Dow Jones.

The Importance of Ignoring the Noise of the Market

Carl Richards, director of investor education at the BAM Alliance 17/10/2014 | “As odd as it may sound, the sooner you start treating your investments like you treat life, the happier you’ll be with the outcome.”
