Top 10 Analyst Rated Biotech Stocks - Slide 1 of 10

Top 10 Analyst Rated Biotech Stocks - Slide 1 of 10



Here is an excellent article on biotech stocks that might be worthwhile.  Since the general stock market is going nowhere, it might be a good time to make small investments in some of these companies like ANAC which have an outstanding product.  Holding government bonds or bond funds like BLV is also a great idea in troubled times.

Health Benefits of Boron | Organic Facts

Health Benefits of Boron | Organic Facts



Here is a great article on the benefits of boron.  This mineral is definitely useful for maintaining strong bones.  It increases calcium levels in bones and cartilage.  Moreover, boron reportedly helps against heart disease.  It reduces fat and cholesterol.  In addition, it decreases fungal infections.  Synerflex is the capsule form of boron that I prefer, and it includes other ingredients that help repair joints.

Do The Bulls Have Any Reason For Hope? | Seeking Alpha

Do The Bulls Have Any Reason For Hope? | Seeking Alpha



Chris Ciovacco has written an outstanding article along with charts to explain the dangers of the stock market in 2016.  There is also hope if the market turns around as it did in 2011 and 1995.  We just don't have enough facts yet to determine the true direction of stocks.  The current situation is bearish because the S&P 500 is below its 50 day and 200 day moving averages.  Until the price of SPY gets above its 50 day line, and the 50 day line slope turns upward, we might be better off sitting on the sidelines.

The One Key Indicator That Will Determine Market Direction | Seeking Alpha

The One Key Indicator That Will Determine Market Direction | Seeking Alpha



Bret Jensen has written an excellent article that suggests the stock market may have turned around.  He used the high-yield corporate bond fund (HYG) as an indicator of market direction.  I agree with Bret on this.  The NYSE McClellan Oscillator ($NYMO) has also come off the bottom.  He also listed two stocks that would be worth buying if the HYG bounce holds up.

Testing the NYSE TICK Index - Analysis Concepts - Labs - Education - TradeStation

Testing the NYSE TICK Index - Analysis Concepts - Labs - Education - TradeStation



This is an outstanding article explaining the $TICK indicator for trading.  It is the sum of upticks and downticks on the NYSE.  TradeStation has determined that it can be profitable to go long when $TICK is oversold at -800 or -1000.  I plan to use $TICK along with other indicators to decide whether or not we are at short term bottom areas of the stock market.

Top 9 Silver ETFs

Top 9 Silver ETFs



This website has a table for 9 popular silver ETFs.  I know commodities are not popular right now, but oil might be near the bottom, and Chase Bank has reportedly been buying silver.  I already own a triple oil long ETF, UWTI, and I plan to buy more this week.  I also intend to buy USLV, the 3x long silver ETF.  These stocks will be long term holdings, though, because neither of these commodities will make super gains right away.  It may take two years to make a substantial profit, but the upside for stocks in general may be a lot less.

Here's Where Crude Oil Supply Will Unexpectedly Be Cut - The United States Oil ETF, LP (NYSEARCA:USO) | Seeking Alpha

Here's Where Crude Oil Supply Will Unexpectedly Be Cut - The United States Oil ETF, LP (NYSEARCA:USO) | Seeking Alpha



Here is a very good article on how the current oversupply of oil could eventually be resolved.  Nobody really wants to take a production cut.  However, some companies will have to stop production at some point to preserve their existence.  We will find the bottom price for oil when enough producers have reduced their supply of oil so that demand is actually more than supply.
