There are pictures of migrations in the current National Geographic and group think in movies in the NY Times. Part of the idea that has captured the world in current days? Relation to markets? How to predict the stages of migration and big moves in markets and individual stocks?

America, at its best, is a glittering symbol of promise to would-be immigrants. But where do they actually want to live in the United States? Trulia, the real-estate listings site, has come up with the only data set we've seen that actually breaks that question down to the city level. Their infographic, Global Pursuits of the American Dream, was built using incoming real-estate searches on Trulia's website . These were then broken down by country of origin, and the city being searched. Here's what the data looks like for two relatively wealth countries, Germany and Italy.

While California was one of the top U.S. destinations for immigrants in the 1990s and 2000s, during the same years many more native citizens moved out than moved in.

 The most dramatic human migration in modern history is the Central Americans atop Mexican freight trains the length of Mexico to the USA border. The quest is freedom and financial independence, with the dream of staking a new individual life and sending sponsor money to their thousands of Central American villages to get the next person on the freight. Each day about one hundred wade cross the river border between Guatemala and southern Mexico, hop on a daily freight- up to 100 per train recalling the USA Great Depression- and jiggle north to Mexico City where they fan out on RR lines to the Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California borders. I've ridden with the young men and a handful of women in three years, once getting caught in mid-stream of the Rio Grande river by US border patrol that took some explaining. A breath-taking though small sample of the month long ride is detailed in Nazario's 2003 Pulitzer Enrique's Journey. The journey for Central Americans is a tale of hardship, although this is the first time I've ever been collared by a RR bull who took me home and introduced me to her mother.
