pic-investments.jpgWelcome to the 40th Carnival of Investing, hosted by Consumerism Commentary. If this is your first visit here, feel free to take some time to learn about me and this website. Thanks to Jonathan from MyMoneyBlog for the opportunity to host this traveling event. Now, on with the show, starting with my favorites, “Editor’s Choice.” I’ve included a word count to give the reader an idea of the effort spent writing and the time required to read the submissions.

Abnormal Returns ruminates on backtesting, humility, and market wisdom (962 words).

Frugal has a dismal view of the next three to five years in the stock market, and sees cracks in the Efficient Market Hypothesis. On his blog, My 1st Million at 33, he says investors in index funds will be lucky to preserve buying power after inflation (518 words).

For the rest, read on…

My Financial Awareness enlivens the debate of index funds vs. active management mutual funds and stock brokers (1,242 words).

Dan Melson from Searchlight Crusade described the differences between flipping, fixing, and investing (681 words).

My Simple Trading System has tips for adding a position growth rule to constant value trading systems (622 words).

Stock Market Beat says Adobe (ADBE) is acting like we wrote the script (571 words).

OSA Tips has advice for investing a windfall (557 words).

Free Money Finance has even more reasons to invest with index funds (347 words).

Blueprint for Financial Prosperity has published a handy guide to reading and interpreting the five-letter NASDAQ ticker symbols (344 words).

MyMoneyPath points out how BusinessWeek reminds us how to measure investment results (328 words).

Emily talks about the real estate market in Turkey and North Cyprus in this podcast from Nubricks (231 words).

My Bond Info warns that bond prices are slipping (138 words).

In Cash Flow We Trusts suggests looking at the 50-day moving average when making investment decisions (124 words).

I exercised some editorial control by not including articles that weren’t about investing, articles that had poor grammar to the point of being barely comprehensible, multiple articles from the same blog, and articles by bloggers who submit practically the same article week after week. If you weren’t included, submit again for next week’s Carnival of Investing, to be hosted by Free Money Finance.
