Recent Stock Volatility

Not entirely sure what is with the volume and volatility in the markets the last two days, but stock prices have generally taken another beating. It becomes clear that much more detailed modeling is required in order to understand the overall economy and it's direction (or more importantly, when the direction will start to change).

Having said that, I am currently writing a series of posts relating to the dual effect of EPS decline on stock prices, lessons and strategies for weathering volatility (and possibly dampening the effect of crisis such as the one we are in through asset allocation and re-balancing) and the increasingly important role of economists and risk managers in investment banking firms.

I hope to have them completed by tonight for publication over what remains of this week.
