One solution has emanated from the Israeli Defense Forces and found a home in Sentigo, the parent company of popular app, Wall St. Scanner.  Wall Street Scanner looks at tens of thousands of sources of information and over 7M webpages every 24 hours scouring for important chatter about stocks.

  • With volatility, should investors be thinking beyond existing stock markets?

    Posted on August 10, 2011 at 12:45 pm UTC

    With all this roller-coaster riding on the ride that is today’s stock market, I was taken by a conversation I had with Amy Cortese, author of Locavesting.

    The conversation centered on the after-effects of landmark legislation creating a two-tiered framework of investor classes:

    1. accredited investors (the rich)
    2. the rest of us

    This bifurcation of the investor population basically enables the rich to invest in private companies while the rest of us are relegated to investing in public markets (essentially, our current stock exchanges). Continue Reading »

  • The Emerging Markets Blueprint for Investors

    Posted on July 28, 2011 at 12:42 pm UTC

    As the U.S. continues its internal struggles over the financial direction of the company, investors are focused overseas more and more.

    Why?

    That’s where the growth is.

    Well, and it’s also getting easier to access emerging markets with new funds, strategies, research, etc.

    I wrote a post over at Wealthfront about ways to access emerging markets beyond BRIC.

    And it got me thinking — I could use a one page investment resource for emerging markets.  So here that is… Continue Reading »
