The market slipped a bit further today after the FOMC statements failed to spur excitement. From Yahoo Finance, “The Federal Reserve stopped short of offering new monetary stimulus on Wednesday even as it signaled further bond buying could be in store to help a U.S. economic recovery that it said had lost momentum this year.”
We now have had three days of small pullbacks after last Friday’s massive upswing. Unfortunately nothing has changed technically and we remain in the support resistance scenario.
To combat the dull market action, tonight I have a summary of Barry Ritholtz’s collection of the “Top 10 Investor Errors”. All of these are worth a quick read through and serve as a good reminder of what to look out for in the market:
1. Excess Fees
2. Reaching for Yield
3. You Are Your Own Worst Enemy
4. Asset Allocation vs Stock Picking
5. Passive vs Active Management
6. Mutual Fund vs ETFs
7. Neglecting the Long Cycle
8. Cognitive Deficits
9. Past Performance vs Future Results
10. Not Getting What You Pay For
