What is Lloyd's Wall of Worry? Welcome to my at-a-glance guide to the issues facing investors this week -- a unique tool for traders and money managers. Typically the term "wall of worry," refers to the entire body of concerns influencing stock market action. When the wall is high, meaning the market is nervous, stocks tend to get cheaper.This wall of worry is even more specific. Every week I list the exact concerns in the marketplace and use the list to help me make buying and selling decisions. As I like to say, "Buy fear, sell cheer."
Scroll over each "worry" for additional comments. - Lloyd Khaner
