Use This Simple Indicator to Visually Identify Price Trends
One of the most overused axioms in trading is “The trend is your friend.” This rearview mirror piece of conventional wisdom would suggest that you should be trading in the direction of the (price) trend, not against it.

Is Dollar General’s Strength Forecasting Economic Weakness?
Over the holiday weekend, I noticed that a new Dollar General (NYSE:DG) store was getting ready to open in my area. I had heard that DG was one of the few retailers that were opening stores, so that wasn’t a surprise.

And this store is in a solidly middle-class area.
