Search Finance Trends Matter

In an effort to help you better find the information you are looking for, I've installed a Google Custom Search bar to help you scour this blog for relevant posts.

You'll find the new search bar in the lower right hand sidebar, underneath our Subscribe and Bookmark widget buttons. Just type in any keyword or search term you like, and hit the search button. All relevant results will be displayed on the next page, and you will also have the option of broadening your search over the entire web.

I chose Google Custom Search, a much needed improvement to our previous site search tools, to help you better find the information you are looking for here at Finance Trends Matter. You will now be able to easily search through all our past content, and find related posts on any subject of interest.

Quick example: say you came here looking for information about hedge fund manager, John Paulson. If you came to a certain post by way of a Google search, or a direct link, you may have seen only one piece of information on the subject before deciding to leave.

But if you were to look over to the Custom Search bar and try out this query, "John Paulson", for more information, you would find an additional number of posts mentioning John Paulson, as well as links to relevant post titles. You'll find even more results here for terms like "gold", "inflation", and "Marc Faber".

So use this search feature. You'll have more information with a minimum of effort, and better search results. Hope this will help you to better navigate the site, and unlock the best content!

Do you have any ideas for further site improvements here at Finance Trends Matter? Let us know about them. Leave a comment or drop us an email (see profile for email address). Thanks.

The Dot-Com Bubble in 1 Chart: InfoSpace

With all the recent talk of a new bubble in the making, thanks in part to the Yellen Fed's continued easy money stance, I thought it'd be instructive to revisit our previous stock market bubble - in one quick chart.

So here's what a real stock market bubble looks like.

For those of you who are a little too young to recall it, this is a chart of InfoSpace at the height of the Nasdaq dot-com bubble in 1999-2001. This fallen angel soared to fantastic heights only to plummet back down to earth as the bubble, and InfoSpace's shady business plan, turned to rubble.

As detailed in our post, "Round trip stocks: Momentum booms and busts", InfoSpace rocketed from under $100 a share to over $1,300 a share in less than six months. 

In a pattern common to many parabolic shooting stars, the stock soon peaked and began a…

William O'Neil Interview: How to Buy Winning Stocks

Investor's Business Daily founder and veteran stock trader, William O'Neil shared his trading methods and insights on buying winning stocks in an in-depth IBD radio interview.

Here are some highlights from William O'Neil's interview withIBD:

William O'Neil's interest in the stock market began when he started working as a young adult. 

"I say many times that I didn't get that much out of college. I didn't have much interest in the stock market until I graduated from college. When I got married, I had to look out into the future and get more serious. The investment world had some appeal and that's when I started studying it. I became a stock broker after I got out of the Air Force."
He moved to Los Angeles and started work in a stock broker's office with twenty other guys. When their phone leads from ads didn't pan out, O'Neil would take the leads and drive down to visit the prospective customers in person.

"I'd get in the c…
