Stock Markets Will Win the Central Bank "Race to the Bottom"

While the U.S. Federal Reserve has begun to reverse its easy money policies, other central banks around the world increasingly see such policies as an economic elixir.

And that will serve as fuel for the world's stock markets, says Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald.

As other central banks start using those same policies, the advantage is lost – unless they ramp up the easing even more. And all that new money will flow directly to the stock markets.

In this video, Fitz-Gerald explains how investors can profit from this situation.

Stocks to Buy: Should Investors Grab Some McDonald's (NYSE: MCD)?

The Fed

With the stock markets still a little jittery after this month's mini-correction, the statements that come out of this week's FOMC meeting (Federal Open Market Committee) will be even more cautious than usual.

"The Fed is all about fairy dust," Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald said in a Wednesday appearance on CNBC World, noting that the Fed really doesn't want to upset the markets right now.

Will the U.S. Stock Market Rally if the GOP Wins the Senate?

With a critical mid-term election looming Nov. 4, many investors want to know what impact the results could have on the U.S. stock market.

If This Is a Stock Market Correction, "Bring It On"

In fact, not even a 10% stock market correction bothers him.

Is Buying Alibaba Stock a Gift to Chinese Hackers?

In all the excitement over the Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: BABA) IPO, there are some investors who are saying no to buying Alibaba stock – all because of where it does business.
