June 2009 - AIA Advocate for Absolute Returns

The AIA "Advocate For Absolute Returns", an on-line publication of The Association for Investor Awareness, Inc., tracks market trends, industry news, the SEC, global trade and finance and Washington developments for you because they affect your investments. But who doesn't? Many sources simply report these issues as abstract facts.

We feel that's not enough. The AIA Advocate's job is to warn you of what's important and how these developments translate to ground-level forces and threats that directly affect your wealth as well as your current investment opportunities. Not just information, but information you can use. Until next time…

    In our last issue we remarked that 'the rally may be getting short of breath.' Shortly thereafter, the huffing and puffing began in earnest. On Monday of this week, definite wheezing sounds were heard as the bull dropped to its knees just short of pushing the market into positive territory for the year. Perhaps the old boy was out of shape after letting the bear take over for six months.

    In any event, since May 28 the Dow dropped 0.8% while the Nasdaq managed to squeak ahead a miniscule 0.8%. More importantly, both measures slipped 3.0% and 1.7% last week - and they are even lower now.
