Market Correction

It's a question that often comes up in times of market turbulence: "What is a death cross?"

In the simplest of terms, a death cross is when the 50-day moving average passes below the 200-day moving average. While traders view the death cross as a bearish indicator, technical analyst dismiss it.

Our Secret to the Biggest Gains During Market Corrections

Best Investments

When it comes to stock market corrections, the urge to sell and run for cover is completely understandable - but it's the wrong move.

Instead, when the going gets tough, the tough... go shopping.

Shopping after a market sell-off is absolutely critical to capture the maximum possible profits. Remember, the markets' powerful upward bias means corrections and even crashes will always pass into history, giving way to wealth-generating bull runs.

On the heels of last Monday's vicious 1,000+ point "dip" and then Wednesday's subsequent 619-point "rip " higher, many investors are asking one question - will the stock market rally stick?

Why Some ETFs Led the Markets Down Last Week


Of all the scary things that happened last Monday when the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 1,000 points, nothing was scarier than what happened with exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

They crashed and exacerbated the market sell-off. They're not all a bad risk, and there are some we like to recommend that are quite safe - even essential - during a market reversal.

Investors need to understand exactly what it is they're holding. But this opens a can of worms Wall Street would rather leave shut tight, because there's a danger to investors from some of these.
