    A financial advisor is someone who assists another person with their financial decisions. They can’t make a decision for their client, but they will provide their best professional advice. When money is tight, a person can benefit from having an advisor close by. What They Do Financial advisors will usually have a profile on the Internet, which displays what they are currently doing. Pete Briger’s profile, over on Xing, does exactly this. A profile will usually consist of the individual’s current position within a company, how long they’ve worked there, and where they went to…

    “Just a little patience, yeah…” – Guns N’ Roses Lastweek the FOMC essentially removed forward guidance and placed all options back on the table, and at the end of the day they’ve opened the door for further tightening. As Yellen recently explained in advance, the removal of the word patience from the Fed’s guidance amounts to fair warning to the rest of the world’s central banks: an interest rate hike is on the horizon. Govern your actions accordingly. (My personal guess, for those interested, is September, with the Fed proceeding exceedingly…

    There is an obsession in the marketplace over the date when the Fed will once again begin to raise rates. As if another 25 basis points is going to change the economics on tens of trillions of dollars of investments. But as we reflect on the issue more deeply, it becomes obvious that a minor bump in the fed funds rate will indeed change a great deal of economics all over the world. No, it won’t do much to the cap rate on your latest real estate purchase, but it is likely to greatly affect the pricing of the currency and commodity markets. And those markets will affect corporate profits,…

    When I travel around the country, one of the questions that comes up often in conversation is, where will the jobs of the future come from? I have a stock answer that I glibly offer: In 1980, the Japanese were beating our brains out. Inflation was well into the double digits, as was unemployment. Finding a job was hard (I know), as one industry after another was being reconfigured and jobs seemed to be disappearing left and right. The answer to the question “Where will the jobs come from?” back then was “I don’t know, but they will.” And they did. Whole new…

That is not completely wrong – both professions are aimed at financial transactions for a business. But, by any other measurement, the two words mean very different things. One common misconception is that it’s all about size. That is, if you’re a business owner and you want to consider a transaction for your business, then you choose a Broker or an I-Banker,…

That's true -- in the long run.But in the short-run bond prices can be just as volatile as stock prices -- costing you money if you must sell at the wrong time, or if you hold them and are stuck with below-market yields.More...

I imagine there are individuals who do have an approach to money wherein the increase of the bank balance is the ultimate goal. But this approach misses the point. Perhaps these savers and earners haven’t given enough thought to why they want to grow their wealth, other than believing…

    As we can see from the above chart, which tracks the five-day moving average of VIX versus the SPX for the past three years, important lows in markets have tended to see spikes in short-term implied volatility (credit to Index Indicators for the chart and data below).  Interestingly, if we bought SPX when the five-day moving of VIX was less than 15, the next five days in SPX averaged a loss of -.04%.  That would have resulted in a cumulative loss of -3.42% during a period in which the market rose by almost 47%!Conversely, if we bought SPX when the five-day moving average of VIX was…
  • The Three R's: Winning Practices of Successful Traders

    25 Mar 2015 | 2:14 am
    For this post, I reflected on the traders I've worked with who have been particularly successful and some of their common practices.  Here are three practices that seem to distinguish the best from the rest:1)  Reviewing and Learning - The best performers keep score.  They review their performance--good and bad--and they made dedicated efforts to learn from mistakes and best practices.  It's much more than keeping a journal.  The successful traders use their observations of performance to fuel specific goals that they then track relentlessly.  They are not…

  • Figuring It Out: An Introduction

    Roger Nusbaum
    28 Mar 2015 | 4:12 pm
    This will be an experiment of sorts. I have always enjoyed reading different perspectives that people have on how to make their lives better. I’ve included some of my thoughts on the subject in with my investing content. The genesis for all of this in terms of writing comes from our friend Bill, here in Walker who once said to us you can figure it out now or you can figure it out later but if you figure it out now you’ll be much better off. Figure it out refers to happiness/contentment/fulfillment/purpose. The catalyst for this sort of self-awareness in my own life came from my…
  • The Fed Loses Patience

    Roger Nusbaum
    23 Mar 2015 | 10:12 am
    This week’s Market Update is posted at Alpha Baskets and includes the following; All of this puts up a major obstacle to the Fed’s raising rates anytime soon. All of the above have contributed to the dollar’s strength but too much strength becomes a problem for the US economy for domestic companies selling abroad. Higher interest rates would be likely to lift the dollar even higher, exacerbating the problem for domestic multinational companies. Should the dollar continue higher it would put further pressure on earnings growth which could then impact GDP growth possibly fomenting the…
  • The Active Passive Debate Evolves by Necessity

    Roger Nusbaum
    23 Mar 2015 | 9:24 am
    My latest post at Alpha Baskets considers the extent to which the line between active and passive continues to blur into a more important outcome oriented approach to investing with the outcome typically being having enough money for retirement. From the post; When an investor can truly embrace that they need to focus on meeting their objective as opposed to beating the market they will invest more suitably which to me means a mix of different types of products that when blended together seek a particular outcome. For some that might mean less volatility than the market which is certainly an…
  • Deflation In The USA?

    Roger Nusbaum
    16 Mar 2015 | 12:20 pm
    This week’s Market Update is posted at Alpha Baskets and includes the following; On Friday the Producer Price Index (PPI) printed at -0.5% which was the fourth monthly decline in a row. This creates a quandary for the Federal Reserve Bank at their meeting this week because it wants to hike interest rates in the next few months. Of course part of the equation is the economy’s presumed ability to stay close to the Fed’s 2% inflation target which it has not been able to do. While lower prices are usually a positive for consumers, the data may be signaling a problem with demand which in…

  • Foreclosure Crisis Update

    Alan White
    28 Mar 2015 | 10:42 am
    Is the foreclosure crisis over? Yes and no. Since 2007, about six million homes have been sold at foreclosure sales (Foreclosures Public Data Summary Jan 2015). Today, about one million homes are still somewhere in the foreclosure process. Homeowners behind in their payments have declined from 15% at the 2010 peak of the crisis to less than 8% now (MBAA delinquent plus in foreclosure at 12/31/14).  Most of the still-troubled loans were originated before 2007. The best news is that new foreclosure starts are now down to pre-crisis levels, at less than one-half of one percent of all mortgages,…
  • Clickwrap Contracts and the Federal Government

    Adam Levitin
    27 Mar 2015 | 2:43 pm
    The government is a major player in the marketplace as a buyer of goods and services, but legal scholars seldom pay attention to the law governing federal acquisitions. As it turns out this nearly completely ignored branch of contract law is actually way ahead of the curve, at least on the question of shrinkwrap and clickwrap contracts.  Title 48 of the Code of Federal Regulations contains the Federal Acquisition Regulations promulgated by the General Services Administration. Among them is a true gem that was promulgated in 2013 that addresses contracts that purport to bind the government to…

    Pamela Foohey

    The Pew Charitable Trusts today released a report focusing on the market for auto title loans. The report brings together data from a wide variety of sources (including Slips contributor Nathalie Martin's work) to provide a clear, succinct, and thorough overview of the mechanics of this under-studied industry. It also, and most interestingly, includes the results of Pew's nationwide survey of borrowers and discussions with focus groups. The empirical data underscore how similar auto title loans are to payday loans, and how regulation of this part of the alternative finance industry…
  • Consumer Bankruptcy with Chinese Characteristics?

    Jason Kilborn
    24 Mar 2015 | 10:24 am
    Deng Xiaoping's famous description of the "new" Chinese development-oriented economy begs the question of what that system intends to do with the inevitable casualties of consumerism and economic development. What of the increasing number of people in danger of falling out (or who have already fallen out) of the new middle class? In contrast to 20 years of concentrated efforts to establish and reform a business insolvency regime, it looks at though China is still very far from introducing a relief mechanism for consumer insolvency. The simple basis for debtor-creditor law in…

    Friday was a bit of a nothing day for the U.S. indexes as stocks bounced back a tiny bit from a string of losses; most of the gains came late in the session as Fed head Janet Yellen spoke and takeover news hit the semiconductor group. The S&P 500 gained 0.24% and the NASDAQ 0.57%. Yellen said a rate increase may be warranted later this year, adding that an increase in core inflation is not...

Inflation has been very benign in the U.S. during this Fed easing cycle and appears to be the only thing aside from a booming economy that will move the Fed to tighten.

  • Get a Small Business Loan or Working Capital Without a Big Bank

    Meryl Evans
    26 Mar 2015 | 7:17 am
    Many small businesses avoid seeking loans, but not for the reasons you think. According to a Sageworks survey, business owners opt not to pursue small business loans because they don’t want to take on debt (62 percent) or think they won’t get approved (24 percent). Data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) shows that small business lending — for loans less than $1 million — has dropped between 2008 and 2012. It has yet to see improvement since. In February 2015, Biz2Credit Small Business Lending Index posted the following lending approval rates: Big banks: 21 percent.

    There’s a lot of confusion when it comes to business financing options as financing services companies can get creative with the names they use to describe the types of financing they offer. Part of that is for a good reason. Not all small business owners know what kind of financing they want or need especially when banks don’t come through. Because of this, financial services companies use simple terms such as flexible funding or flexible financing. Invoice financing, accounts receivable financing and MCA funding mean little to business owners. Small businesses know they need working…

Naturally, the first thing most people thought was that some employees may be abusing their cell phones to make personal calls. That wasn’t the case. After doing a little detective work, the manager figured out that the high phone bills resulted from employees having different usage needs and working in different locations.

    With spring break and summer vacation season upon us, I always recommend that parents place an historical site in the itinerary. It could be a quick pull-over at the geographical center of the continental United States where you get a quick family photo, or it can be a week in Gettysburg to take a deep dive into Civil War history. If you plan ahead, you can listen to audio books in the family car on the theme of your vacation. They’re a great way to get the kids excited about what they’re about to experience and they beat the heck out of one more replay of a kid movie soundtrack…

    About half the world's oil production is moved by tankers on fixed maritime routes, according to Reuters. The blockage of a chokepoint, even temporarily, can lead to substantial increases in total energy costs and thus, these chokepoints are crucial to global energy security. While Hormuz remains the largest chokepoint (and along with Bab el-Mandeb explains why Yemen matters so much).And while Yemen is key for The Strait of Hormuz...With Bab el-Mandeb even more specifically problematic if Yemen tensions get too extreme...Related: Who Benefits…
  • Tax Cuts Insufficient To Halt North Sea Job Losses

    Andy Tully
    27 Mar 2015 | 3:33 pm
    The British government’s offer of “bold and immediate measures” for the North Sea energy industry evidently wasn’t enough for some companies groping for ways to cut costs because of the plunge in oil prices and reduced oil and gas reserves in the region. George Osborne, Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, says the country’s 2015 budget will cut tax revenue from North Sea oil from 50 percent to 30 percent to help stave off job cuts. Yet Royal Dutch Shell, the UK’s largest oil company, announced March…

(Image courtesy of Athabasca Oil) PetroChina (NYSE:PTR), the Asian country’s largest oil major by market value, no longer wants a stake in Canada’s oil sands as the ongoing collapse in crude prices has made the sector less attractive and more costly.

  • Impending Iran Deal Could Crush Current Rally

    James Stafford
    27 Mar 2015 | 11:51 am
    The headline for the week was Saudi Arabia’s attack on rebels in Yemen, which threatens to ignite tensions between regional rivalries in the Middle East. The proximate cause was the advance by Houthi rebels on Aden where the Yemeni President is located. Saudi Arabia spent several weeks secretly reaching out to its regional allies to build support for an attack on the Houthis, signing up support from Turkey, Egypt, and an array of Gulf States. The advanced knowledge of the United States government appears to be a matter of dispute, with some…

    Argentina, once a regional energy leader, is now better known for financial busts and bombastic politicians than hydrocarbons prospects. Still, with a resource potential both vast and untapped, the nation has never been far from energy investors’ minds. The question today is just how much Argentina is willing to change and how this plays into a low oil price environment that is already negatively impacting investment elsewhere. Argentina’s deliberate efforts to appease some of its international creditors, combined with an overhaul of…

There are, however, ways to soften the blow, to develop a familiarity with the way markets and market operators work and thereby to open up the possibility of a more secure financial future.

When money is tight, a person can benefit from having an advisor close by. What They Do Financial advisors will usually have a profile on the Internet, which displays what they are currently doing.

Except, that doesn’t actually happen when you’re a landlord. If you plan on becoming one, here are 7 things you should know first: 1. You Won’t Always Have a Tenant There may be times your property doesn’t have a tenant. What does this mean? You’re going to have to foot the bill. You need to make sure you have enough cash in reserve to afford this, as you never know when a tenant will just up and leave.

So for them, taxes is the only certainty. Ah… to be so young… While it would be nice if we allowed everyone under thirty to earn as much as they can completely tax free, such a thing will never come about in our lifetimes. In the U.S., if a newborn could earn money, the newborn would pay income tax. That being the case, it is interesting to see how attitudes about taxes effect the way taxes are addressed from one generation to…

In fact, most rational people would prefer to sell stocks given poor news regarding corporate earnings, employment, sales, prices, or any other factor which would tend to lower the chances of future corporate profits. Nevertheless, sometimes…

    By Chris Ebert In the February 26 Thursday Evening Options Brief it was noted that: If Big-Money truly intends to drive the S&P to new all-time highs this March, it should not surprise individuals that the first step might be to take out as many of the individual traders’ stops as possible.” This week’s analysis: The S&P 500 has declined well off the all-time high recently achieved near the 2120 level. While the recent pullback off the high has not yet reached the 10% threshold (or 212 points off the high) to meet the traditional definition of a correction, it did indeed meet…

    By Chris Ebert Note to readers: the following weekly analysis is based upon findings in the Thursday Evening Options Brief Last week’s Thursday Evening Options Brief stated: “Probably the most important factor an individual retail stock market trader needs to be concerned with at the moment is whether or not big-money interests are putting their support behind the most recent rally in stock prices – the rally that saw the 2100 level surpassed for the S&P 500 index.” Now this week’s analysis: Big money, a hypothetical yet very real entity comprised of large institutions and…

    Do you trade AAPL, NFLX or BABA? Check out our trade signals for any stock. We launched our new website and you can get trade signals for as little as $20. VISIT OUR NEW SITE Posted 11:00 AM ET - The nasty selloff on Wednesday will keep buyers at bay.

The SPY finished below the 100-day moving average yesterday and traders will error on the side of safety heading into the weekend. The price action today …

    I post my market comments before the open in my trading platform. I also post play-by-play comments on busy days like Wednesday. Profits on a day like yesterday pay for the platform for a year. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION Posted 12:00 PM ET - It's funny how the market tone can change in a matter days. I've been mentioning that bull markets are not dependent on tiny countries like Greece or one word in an FOMC statement.

    Posted 10:15 Am ET - Yesterday, the market tried to rally but resistance at the all-time high was stiff. By the end of the day the gains had evaporated and we saw a little selling in the last 30 minutes of trading. The market lacks a catalyst. Flash PMI's were mixed. Strength in Europe was offset by weakness in Asia. Japan has been printing money like mad and their flash PMI hit its lowest level in almost a year. This tactic has not stimulated economic growth and rate cuts are no longer pushing equities higher. Economic growth and corporate profits are …

    Posted 12:00 PM ET - Last week the market got what it wanted. As expected, the Fed removed the word "patient" from the statement and it softened the blow with dovish comments. They can raise rates at any time, but that is highly unlikely due to fragile economic conditions. The market liked the news, but it did not challenge the high. The SPY is above $209 and that is support. Earnings season is two weeks away and that should keep a bid under the market. I question the strength of this five-year bull market. When the fate of investors is held …

    How do you start saving for retirement on a limited budget? For some the concept of investing money to build a more financially secure future is second nature, a habit that seems to be built into their DNA. For many others it seems like a foreign language, or something that is reserved for those who might be found lounging pool side by their summer home three months out of the year. With a margarita. No, a dry martini. And a small dog. No wait, a wolf. Sorry. Anyway, saving for retirement, a college fund or the adventure of a lifetime is a habit anyone can learn and the Acorns app makes it…

My 5 DMA stat is expecting a break below the 2039.69 low and we haven't seen that yet, and I still have possible bull flag support in the 2030-5 area. If that isn't the reversal area I'd be looking down rather than up for the next targets. SPX daily chart: The move up from the low yesterday was a rising wedge which then broke down in the afternoon. I posted the chart below on twitter then with the comment that in this context that rising wedge would generally be a…
  • Today's Trading Plan: Double Top Support

    27 Mar 2015 | 1:17 am
    Technical Outlook (SPX): A light sell-off  yesterday that still saw a strong big of volume overall.  All the overnight gains have been quickly wiped out prior to today's open.  Key support today exists at 2040. If this breaks a double top confirms on the daily and also on the 30 minute chart.  So far 2040 has held when tested.  VIX rose 2.3% yesterday to 15.80.  SPX has been down 4 out of the last 5 weeks, yet surprisingly VIX is still below 16! T2108 indicates that the selling may just now be getting started in this market as 44% of stocks still remain above…
  • Revenge of the Killer 5DMA Stat

    26 Mar 2015 | 7:05 am
    Well I said it would be a big break if my rising channel broke and well, here we are. SPX broke back below the daily middle band yesterday and closed at the test of main rising wedge support. That has broken down at the open and we are back to the stats I gave at the break back below the 5 DMA a few days ago, when I said that every similar break since the start of 2007 had resulted in a lower low before a higher high. I'm expecting that lower low under 2039.69 this week and most likely today. I'd add that the daily lower band is at 2040 so that really is the next obvious target. SPX daily…
  • Today's Trading Plan: Starting to Get Ugly

    26 Mar 2015 | 1:18 am
    Technical Outlook (SPX): SPX had a huge sell-off yesterday taking it down 30 points and to the rising trend line off of the 2/2 lows. 50-day, 20-day and 10-day moving averages were all broken with little contest yesterday.  Volume on SPY was fairly strongly yesterday.  VIX rose 13.4% to 15.44 T2108 indicates that the selling may just now be getting started in this market as 46% of stocks still remain above their 40-day moving average.  It has been over 20 years since we have not seen two straight days where the market finished higher.  Plenty of uncertainty remains in the…
  • Important Support Test Here

    25 Mar 2015 | 6:22 am
    I posted the chart below on twitter last night to show that the channel support that I posted as a target on Monday morning was tested at the close. I was concerned by that test being on the low ticks of the day at the close, and we'll have to see whether that holds this morning. On my main scenario we see a strong bounce from that support into new highs, very possibly this week. If we were to see a hard break down then I'd be looking for a very possible gap under channel support at the open today and at the moment at least, that seems unlikely. SPX 5min chart: So what if channel support…

    David Bettencourt
    27 Mar 2015 | 1:54 pm
    Abby Higgs: ETF investing is so popular because of its ease and safety – but you might feel like the amount of choices in exchange-traded funds can be overwhelming. But there’s nothing to be overwhelmed about with ETFs. ETFs are like mutual funds that trade like stocks. Unlike mutual funds that are priced once per day after the markets close, ETFs can be traded on the major exchanges intra-day – or anytime during the trading day. The prices fluctuate just like stocks. ETFs are also popular because of their low turnover, meaning they’re not often replaced as fiscal assets…

    Comment from reader Rich on yesterday's post prompted me to run a quick investigation - does adjusting bars helps to bring distribution of highs and lows closer to theory? The answer is definitely yes, but as everything else in life the reality is complicated. Here's what I found:Using SPY data for 2013 and 2014, and dividing trading day into 7 equal time intervals of about 56 minutes the percentages of highs and lows (and theoretical from arcsine law) are as follows: highs lows theoretical 30% 42% 25% 11% 14% 11% 9% 8% 10% 6% 4% 9% 7% 7% 10% 11% 9% 11% 27% 16% 25% So the numbers are clearly…

Similar (symmetric) U pattern exists for distribution of daily highs - they also more likely to happen near the open or the close.This particular distributions of daily extremes is actually not surprising - it is one of the properties of random walk process.

    Most businesspeople, and especially those familiar with accounting, understand the old adage “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Everything has a cost associated with it, including expense reporting and travel booking. And it usually makes sense to cut costs in order to maximize profit. But even the best of us can become a bit complacent from time to time and opt to maintain the status quo instead of trying something newSometimes we assume overhead costs are unavoidable, or even as good as sunk. Of course, that’s not necessarily the case. In fact, it’s a mistake. It pays to…

    Everybody has habits. There are two kinds of habits: good habits, and bad ones. You need to build up your good habits, or else, your bad habits will take you to the poor house. Many people don’’t manage to save money or build up assets because they simply have bad habits. They are hard workers, they try to save, they love their families, they’re responsible people; but in the end, they have little to show for their efforts because of their bad financial habits. People dig themselves into a hole financially because of the things they do on impulse, and it seems that bad financial…

    Edwin C
    17 Sep 2014 | 11:28 pm
    It’s very easy to figure out the ways credit cards make people unhappy. Being in debt and having bad credit being two of those reasons. It’s easy to go crazy when you have a mounting of debt facing you. It’s easy to feel trapped, when all the money that you earn during the month goes to rent, food and credit cards with nothing left over for you to save or have fun with. With that said, having credit cards can also make you happy. The truth is that the credit card is really just a tool.

Many are quite tricky wherein they ask a poll and when you fill it out; it leads you to credit score websites. Many of these websites offer so called free credit scores.

  • You Are Not Defined By Your Credit Score

    Edwin C
    7 Aug 2014 | 12:09 am
    There are many things that define a person. It all depends on what you choose to define you. Some people choose to be defined by their past experiences while others, by their goals and dreams. In any case, you need to pick a personal definition that does not lie in the hands of other people. In other words, you need to pick something that you can control. Sadly, too many people think that their low credit score define them. As a result, they feel a lot of guilt and shame and end up not doing things that they should be doing. They are prevented from trying things that they should be trying.

In fact, since the start of 2012, the NASDAQ Biotechnology index has gained 256%. In the same period, the S&P 500 has only mustered a 65% gain. With that in mind, it’s important to do proper due diligence on any biotech stocks in 2015. With the biotechnology index on fire, due diligence will help investors avoid the high-risk stocks.

As with the majority of home or property purchases many people require some degree of financial aid to assist them when having to pay for their property. Most self-build projects, similar to the ready built counterpart, require a mortgage to fund the building and development.

To qualify for this deal you will have to have 40% equity or deposit. You would also have to be confident that you are going to remain in your property for 10…

    25 Mar 2015 | 2:39 pm
    There are several ways to fix student loan debt problems. None of them could be defined as “quick.” According to a report released by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in February, student loan debt has climbed to $1.16 trillion. While still a distant second to U.S. mortgage debt ($8.17 trillion), it now exceeds the total value of every U.S. car loan ($955 billion), all credit card debt ($700 billion) and all home equity loans ($510 billion). It's also just shy of all the money ($1.3 trillion) the Federal Reserve has in circulation. If that student loan debt grows by another $33…

  • How Much Is My House Worth?

    admin
    2 Mar 2015 | 6:24 am
    The value of your home depends on a number of factors, so there is no single answer for a particular home type. For example, a three-bedroom detached house could cost $1 million in one neighborhood, and $100,000 in another. In fact, location is perhaps the single most important factor in determining the value of your home, although this can be further broken down into other factors such as the amount of crime in the area, availability of good schools, nearby shopping and other things. Don’t necessarily trust online estimates There are a number of sites on the web that will provide you free…

    If you are like most people, it feels good not to have any debt. That’s why it’s so attractive to pay off your car loan – this is usually the largest debt but anyone has, except for their mortgage. However, before you do this, there are a number of things that you need to take into consideration. While paying off your car loan may make sense, you have to look at the numbers and your personal circumstances in order to make the right decision.

    If you’re about to get married, the last thing you want to do is to appear cheap. Many people worry about how much they should spend on a wedding ring because of this. On the other hand, there is no point in spending so much that you start your marriage off deep in debt. What people actually spend There are lots of so-called guidelines out there on how much to spend on a ring. Some people claim that you should spend one month’s salary, while others claim you should spend as much as three. To put this in context, the truth is that the average man spends a little over $5,200 on an…

    Often, when people rent a property rather than owning their home, they don’t think that they need any insurance. However, while your landlord will insure the building itself, the contents of your rented home are not covered. While you may think that the value of your belongings is negligible, you would be surprised how much they are worth. Don’t just think about how much you could sell your belongings for – instead, think about how much it would cost you to replace them. Renters insurance is not expensive The amount that you will pay for renter’s insurance depends on the amount that…

    25 Mar 2015 | 4:01 am
    While the Internal Revenue Code does allow those who donate funds to charity to receive an income tax deduction to offset a portion of their income, in practice the two rarely offset perfectly. Income is counted “above the line”, increasing Adjusted Gross Income and impacting a wide range of tax credits and deductions, while charitable contributions only apply for those who itemized deductions in the first place and face further charitable contribution deduction limits. As a result, there is often some “tax slippage” between the two. In recent years, retirees who have “more than…

    In a relationship-based service business like financial planning, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to provide value to clients. On the one hand, this is the whole point of hiring a financial advisor – to delegate at least some of that work to a professional – yet at the same time, when much of the service work becomes invisible “shadow work”, clients may not fully appreciate how much is really done on their behalf. For existing clients, bringing the shadow work out of the shadows can be as simple as tracking and documenting all the service work done throughout the year, and…

    If you had to choose between the two – CFA or FRM, which one will you take? Maybe CFA, maybe FRM or both? This is one of the most freqently asked questions when students make up their mind to advance their careers in Finance. Making the right choice is important because each of the examination takes lot of hard work, money and ofcourse lot of time. The choice, however, is sometimes difficult for those who are not aware of its key differences. I was fortunate to pass both the CFA and FRM exams and was lucky to go through the course details, benefits and nuances of both the examinations.

    When you analyze a company’s financial health, the very first measure that you may want to check is profitability. The portion of a company’s profit allocated to each outstanding share of  common stock is known as Earnings Per Share or EPS. Though the interpretation of Earnings Per Share is relatively easy, however, the EPS calculation is not this simple. For example, let us have a look at the Colgate Palmolive Earnings Per Share Schedule. source – Colgate 10K filings We note that there are two variations of EPS – Basic EPS and Diluted EPS in Colgate Also note that…

This post-merger corporation is being undervalued by the market, likely due to a number of factors which include business cyclicality and 2014 R&D among others. The combined company has two distinct…

    Don’t expect equity-like returns in traditional fixed income. I am just about to put out an update on our “What to Expect in 2015…” piece on Altegris Perspectives. However with a surprisingly good jobs report out this past Friday it is worth a specific comment on the report for those who care. The conclusion from the employment numbers lends some support to an increase in Fed Funds rate at mid-year. The early reaction of the US yield curve – a 10bps upward movement in 2-year interest rates – indicates that market expectations are moving in that direction as well. I think…

It is not clear that this has any significant near term  broad investment implications. While the talks about a different relationship have been going on for some time, the urgency of reaching closure on the part of Cuba may have been accelerated by what has happened to oil prices and the problematic issues of Cuba’s relationship with Venezuela in addition to the start of…

  • NRIs Return Home as Indian Economy Booms

    Ashoke Gupta
    28 Mar 2015 | 10:54 am
    It’s estimated that there are over 25 million Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), most of whom left their native country to seek greater opportunities abroad. However, many are now returning home as India’s economy surges and the nation’s outlook seems brighter. This is contrary to the fact that pay for senior executives has dropped and analysts say that skilled workers in management positions can only expect to earn around half of what they could three years ago. However, with economic weakness in most western nations, and India’s GDP growth predicted to surpass China’s in 2016, NRIs are…

    Frontier markets have been beaten down, only to regain consciousness and be punched in the face soon after. Falling oil prices should be helping these emerging economies, but that has not been reflected in the performance of the equity market. This is particularly true in U.S. Dollar terms, as the currency continues to climb in value against a basket of currencies.  The DXY index, a representative basket of world currencies vs. the dollar, is up more than 5.2% since the beginning of 2015 and has enjoyed the strongest performance since 2003.

    1. The math behind the indicator is as follows: (Latest Close - Prior Close) * Latest Volume 2. You then take the Exponential Moving Average of this number. Specifically, the conventional use is to focus on looking for the EMA over 2 and 13 periods. 3. The textbook rule is to trade in the direction of the 13 EMA. So, when the 13 EMA is positive, the trend is bullish and one wishes to look to buy; when it is negative, one is looking to sell. However, the conventional use is to look for the 2 EMA to be the opposite of the 13 EMA; meaning the following: if 2 EMA negative and 13 EMA positive ==…

    Probably the most much of the time asked personal finance inquiries during this difficult economy rotate around "how to budget", "how to make a budget" and "how to live on a tight budget". Budgeting your money effectively is pivotal to prospering in any sort of economy, substantially less an intense one.

These false thoughts totally bypass the main genuine objective of any personal budget: Getting…

    Last week began with a bearish US dollar, as investors continued to weigh the impact of the latest Fed statement regarding future interest rate increases. Mid-week, positive data out of the euro zone helped the EUR retrace some of its recent losses against the dollar and British pound. The conflict in Yemen, which is threatening to turn into a civil war, led to volatility in the oil markets, while worse than expected GDP data out of the US further signaled that the economy there has hit a soft patch. This week, the main focus is likely to be news out of the US, China and Canada. Tuesday’s…

    The British pound received support as retail sales figures came in much stronger than expected. There was a robust pickup in activity in February with a rise of 0.7% on the month versus a consensus estimate of 0.4%. That took the annualized increase up to 5.7%. The home improvement subdivision saw the strongest rise. Analysts use this as a barometer for the health of the UK’s property sector. Markets welcomed the news but many analysts point to the fact that the UK economy is still too reliant on consumer spending. The pound rallied ahead of the announcement as traders were expecting a…

    AUD/NZD traded down to the 1.0216 fresh long term low on March 23rd, but it has since bounced correctively as high as the 1.0338 level. In making that new low, the cross broke through key support noted at its previous long term low point of 1.0285, seen only briefly in July of 1997, to fall into uncharted territory where only psychological levels and trend lines provide support. From a longer term perspective, AUD/NZD currently trades within a medium term descending channel pattern that extends back to the 1.0347 peak of April 2014. The channel’s support and resistance trend lines are drawn…

    After reaching as high as 100.33 on March 13th, the US dollar index (DXY) has been gradually selling off and as of this writing is trading at 96.6940. The selloff accelerated significantly after the March 18th meeting of the FOMC, in which the Fed eliminated the word “patient” from the text of its statement, but downwardly revised GDP growth and CPI inflation estimates in the economic projections. The high in the US dollar index came one week after the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a better than expected non-farm payrolls number and a two tenths point decline in the U.S.
