    The United States is just starting to think about the upcoming elections (for whatever reason, the vast majority of people don’t focus on politics until after Labor Day), but there is another election happening “over the pond,” where the polls have just made everybody do a double-take. I am of course referring to the referendum on Scottish independence, which will be held next week. Voters opposing the measure were a clear majority for months, but their numbers began slipping a few weeks ago; and as of last few days the contest is basically even, with the election probably…

    Paul Krugman and other notables dismiss the notion of a skills gap, though employers continue to claim they’re having trouble finding workers with the skills they need. And if you look at the evidence one way, Krugman et al. are right. But this week an interesting post on the Harvard Business Review Blog Network by guest columnist James Bessen suggests that employers may not just be whining, they may really have a problem filling some kinds of jobs. Unsurprisingly, the problem is with new technology and the seeming requirement that workers learn new skills on the job – you know, like when…

    Interesting op-ed on digital wallets by Edward Castronova and Joshua Fairfield in the NYT. I'm a little more skeptical. Thoughts follow the break. (1) We already live in a world of digital currency. Thanks to fractional reserve banking and electronic records, most currency and transactions are electronic now, not cash. Most money is already digital; there is a right of paper convertibility, but we're in a digital currency world without involving Satoshis and Ripples (¿or is that ripplakh?).  (2) Government Acceptance of a Currency Matters...A LOT.  I would take issue with…

    NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- President Obama isn't the only one facing criticism and bad reviews. Ratings for Congress, both political parties and Congressional leaders are low.

    This past week several reports came across my desk highlighting both the good news and the bad news about the future of automation and robotics. There are those who think that automation and robotics are going to be a massive destroyer of jobs and others who think that in general humans respond to shifts in employment opportunities by creating new opportunities. As I’ve noted more than once, in the 1970s (as it seemed that our jobs were disappearing, never to return), the correct answer to the question, “Where will the jobs come from?” was “I don’t know, but they…

    We all know that the most difficult part of the negotiations of a Purchase Agreement are the Reps and Warrants and Indemnification sections.  An R&W insurance policy basically takes a seller off the hook for the typical indemnifications they accept when they sell their company. It can be a great tool when you have that seller that thinks he has (and will accept) no responsibility for damage claims from the buyer for sins that occurred prior to the sale. Occasionally, when a seller digs his heels in on these issues, the buyer will buy the insurance.  Dan Vermeire just completed a $15…

The Fed began its two-day policy meeting on Tuesday, and while it has said it doesn't expect to raise rates until 2015, recent strong economic data has led Fed officials to acknowledge they may need to move sooner than they previously anticipated.

The figures make it easier to understand why many Americans think the United States remains in recession and why President Barack Obama's approval ratings have hovered near 40 percent.

    The prevalence of tipping is simply a fact of society.

He would ask the rest of our friends eating together at a restaurant, “When did the expected base tip go from 15 percent to 20 percent?” I’m not concerned so much as when cultural norms like these change, but how they change. Is it regional? Does a trend like this start among a wealthier subset and then trickle down to everyone else? Most everyone who dines out understands that…

The survey, put together by BankRate, attempts to get to the root cause for the lack of penetration of credit cards among this younger demographic, despite the attempts to sell the idea of credit cards to this generation.

But before long, I felt at home in my adopted-for-college state and adjusted to the new state of existence well. My financial situation left much to be desired, though, if I had even known that there was something to desire. I had had a bank account for a couple…

    I couldn’t sleep last night, so I got up and did some reading. I read the book, As a Man Thinketh by James Allen. The following quote stood out to me: Here is a man who is wretchedly poor. He is extremely anxious that his surroundings and home comforts should be improved, yet all the time he shirks his work, and considers he is justified in trying to deceive his employer on the ground of the insufficiency of his wages. Such a man does not understand the simplest rudiments of those principles which are the basis of true prosperity, and is not only totally unfitted to rise out of his…

  • 5 Reasons to be Optimistic About the Economy

    Richard Barrington
    15 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    I find that defaulting to pessimism about the economy is a great way to hedge your emotional bets. If things turn out well, then I can count it a pleasant surprise. If things turn out badly, at least I have the satisfaction of having been right. Lately though, there have been some cracks in my gloomy facade. I look at economic data every day, and there is so much information that there is bound to be a mix of bad and good. (You can pretty much always spin the economy however you please.) Still, beyond the usual week-to-week gyration of data points, there are a number of trends that seem to…
  • 5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Considering Homeownership

    FCN Staff
    12 Sep 2014 | 10:48 am
    This post comes from Sean T. Johnston at our partner site Zing! Being a renter has its advantages. For the most part, you don’t need to concern yourself with costly indoor or outdoor maintenance. When your lease is up, you can just leave. You don’t have to worry about selling the property. But as convenient as renting is, you are, in essence, paying someone else’s mortgage. While the responsibilities of being a homeowner are greater, so are the rewards. You can make whatever modifications you’d like without having to worry about a landlord. In addition, there are lots of tax…
  • Meet the Enemy of Retirement Security: Procrastination

    Jeffrey Steele
    10 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    Last year, I signed up for a program called “Connections” through my college alma mater. The program is designed to bring a group of the college’s current juniors and seniors to the big city, for a pow-wow with both recent graduates and ancient grads like myself, who work in the students’ prospective career fields. On the day of the confab, a handful of us alumni sat on the dais, facing a dozen fresh-faced undergrads. After we alums painted a verbal picture for the kids of the work world we inhabit on a daily basis, it was time for the question-and-answer session. It…
  • Should You Spend Your Money or Your Time?

    Suba Iyer
    8 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    We’ve all heard that time is money. It can mean various things to various people. Over time, if you save and invest, you will have more money. If you waste time, the money you earn will be less. The clock is ticking, and every moment you aren’t earning is money lost. Every moment you aren’t enjoying life is life forever lost. If we spend our time instead of our money, we miss other opportunities. If we spend our money instead of our time, we lose the money. When we first start out in life, we often don’t have a lot of money and don’t have much choice other than…
  • Fannie Mae is Ending the Home Path Program

    FCN Staff
    5 Sep 2014 | 6:05 pm
    This post comes from Mike Nickele at our partner site Zing! I’ve got some good news and some bad news on the housing front. First, the good news: The market is ticking up and the inventory of foreclosed homes is dwindling. The bad news: For just that reason, Fannie Mae is ending its HomePath program. Fannie Mae’s HomePath program helps buyers of foreclosed properties get cost-effective mortgages, including cash for repairs and remodeling on homes owned by Fannie Mae. The HomePath program currently offers a number of incentives for home buyers: You can put down as little as 5%, there’s…

  • Spousal abuse: physical, financial and tax-related

    Don't Mess With Taxes
    16 Sep 2014 | 2:45 pm
    He who controls the purse strings makes the rules. Although this popular quote uses "he" in the general, universal sense to make a money point, the pronoun is the operative word in most domestic violence cases. Not to get all wild-eyed feminist, but as the recent spousal abuse cases in the National Football League have underscored, women generally are the victims when relationships take a physical turn for the worse. No money, continued abuse: In addition to physical violence, abused spouses and partners also often face financial abuse. The spouse or partner who makes the most money…

  • Finding Opportunity in Stock Market Cycles

    16 Sep 2014 | 3:16 am
    The recent post suggested that a variety of market observations can be pulled together by drawing upon an explanatory framework.  A good theory not only helps us understand what has happened in markets; it also suggests what we might observe in the future.  Science begins with observation.  Until we link our observations and make sense of them, they remain isolated data points.  Theory is a big part of what transforms data into explanation.What my observations suggest is that a limited number of variables, such as buying and selling pressure; volatility; breadth;…

  • The Challenge of Cultivating Trading Intuition

    15 Sep 2014 | 2:24 am
    If we are to ground our investment and trading decisions in sound understanding and prediction, what, then, is the role of intuition in decision-making?The recent post on intuition began with an interesting quote from Einstein, in which he described the rational mind as a faithful servant and the intuitive mind as a sacred gift.  Indeed, to those who achieve creative insights, it does indeed seem as though those flashes of insight come from an other-worldly source.The problem in financial markets is that so many participants lack both faithful servants and sacred gifts.  I have met…
  • Overcoming Impulsivity and Procrastination

    14 Sep 2014 | 1:47 am
    Perhaps the two most common psychological concerns of traders are impulsivity--doing things without clearly thinking through the rationale--and procrastination, failing to act upon our plans and intentions.  Most commonly, impulsivity is the result of frustration and excitement:  our body's arousal impels us to action, even when it might be best to stand aside.  Procrastination is most often a function of worry and anxiety.  It is a way to avoid potential negative consequences.  Both behaviors lead to situations in which traders fail to act upon their ideas and…

    My latest for Alpha Baskets looks at a couple negatively biased articles and how to overcome the threats cited in them. From the post; The issue with the profane article is that it assumes people will simply sit back and just take what is foisted upon them. Some will of course but no one has to. I said the article was about the visibility for a lack of demand from the top down, the solution is from the bottom up; figuring yourself out, living below your means and having a high savings rate.

  • Wait, Is Freelancing A Bad Thing?

    Roger Nusbaum
    6 Sep 2014 | 8:01 pm
    In the last day or two there has been a lot of coverage about a survey published by the Freelancers Union that 1/3 of workers (54 million people) meet the definition of being a freelancer. Here is one article with details but there are many out there. There are five types of freelancers as follows; Independent contractors: 40% (21.1M) Moonlighters: 27% (14.3M) Diversified workers: 18% (9.3M). They combine traditional work with freelance. Temporary workers: 10% (5.5M) Freelance business owners: 5% (2.8M) The first conclusion that people are probably drawing from the survey has to do with the…

    Interesting op-ed on digital wallets by Edward Castronova and Joshua Fairfield in the NYT. I'm a little more skeptical. Thoughts follow the break. (1) We already live in a world of digital currency. Thanks to fractional reserve banking and electronic records, most currency and transactions are electronic now, not cash. Most money is already digital; there is a right of paper convertibility, but we're in a digital currency world without involving Satoshis and Ripples (¿or is that ripplakh?).  (2) Government Acceptance of a Currency Matters...A LOT.  I would take issue with…
  • Settling Detroit: Remembering General Unsecured Creditors

    Melissa Jacoby
    12 Sep 2014 | 10:34 am
    The trial on the City of Detroit's restructuring takes a hiatus while insurer Syncora and others try to finalize a settlement. The deal seems to be a hybrid of enhanced treatment for Syncora's class of claims in Detroit's plan (class 9) and other value for Syncora alone, such as rights in Detroit property, and possibly a release from insurance obligations on interest rate swaps. The deal does not resolve class 9 objections as a whole. Indeed, it may give others in the class, e.g., insurer FGIC, more to grumble about. Signals are flashing that the judges (intentionally plural)…
  • Apple Pay and the CFPB

    Adam Levitin
    10 Sep 2014 | 8:56 pm
    Apple Pay has been getting a lot of attention, and I hope to do a longer post on it, but for now let me highlight one possible issue that does not seem to have gotten any attention. I think Apple may have just become a regulated financial institution, unwittingly. Basically, I think Apple is now a "service provider" for purposes of the Consumer Financial Protection Act, which means Apple is subject to CFPB examination and UDAAP.  Here's the argument. Be warned:  this is a romp through some legal definitions.  The CFPB has authority over two classes of people:  "covered…

    One of the competitors in the Great Mobile Payments Race is changing its name. Isis Wallet, a mobile payments joint venture of AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile is changing its name to Softcard for fairly obvious reasons. Isis Wallet operates by having the consumer store his/her payment card information on a "secure element"--tech speak for a tamper resistant chip that safely stores encrypted information.  (The particular secure element for Isis Wallet depends on the phone model.) That payment information is then communicated with merchants using NFC (near field communications,…
  • Now Might Be the Time for the Longest Pending Catholic Diocese Chapter 11 Case to Settle

    The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is one of 11 dioceses (plus 2 other Catholic-affiliated religious orders) to file under Chapter 11 -- and it likely will not be the last. All of the cases were filed in hopes of achieving global settlements of sexual abuse claims. The Milwaukee Archdiocese filed over 3.5 years ago, in January 2011, making it the longest running Diocese case. 6 of the 7 other dioceses that filed before it confirmed reorganization plans in an average of about 2 years after filing. The shortest time to confirmation was 10 months, while the longest was 2.75 years. The other diocese,…

GLD has bounced back this year, but investors still appeared to be spooked, as the precious metal ETF continues to hemorrhage assets.

Not to have one, would be like identifying an important strategic initiative and not assigning someone to own it, be responsible for it and make sure action happens. I’m sure you have heard the old saying/joke about why a particular person is the MP of a firm…. “I left the partner meeting to go to the restroom and while I was gone I was elected managing partner.” Other descriptions I have heard…

    I was asked to contribute to a survey recently, and one question made me think.  It was a question about why don’t more people consult investment professionals, and What keeps them from doing so.  I gave a fairly standard answer for me: There are two reasons: first, most people don’t have enough income or assets for investment professionals to have value to them. Second, people don’t understand what investment professionals can do for them, which is: They can keep you from panicking or getting greedy They can find ways to reduce your tax burdens They can diversify…
  • Fear of Delegating – A Big Issue For Career Success

    Rita Keller
    12 Sep 2014 | 2:12 am
    I am often in discussions about specific partner performance, manager success and the over-whelming workload of many partners, firm administrators and others working inside busy accounting firms. One topic reappears over and over again. In my survey work for firm leaders, a comment I am sure to hear regarding almost everyone receiving upward-feedback is: They need to delegate more. It is a very common problem. Perhaps it is because accountants and those surrounding them become perfectionists and believe no one can “do it” as well, as fast, as thoroughly as they can do it,…
  • Almost Unheard Of In CPA Firm Circles

    On Monday, Marc Rosenberg blogged about well-known and admired accounting firm, Plante Moran. Rosenberg heard things directly from Plante’s MP, Gordon Krater, that I wish I heard from the many firms I work with and talk to each year. I usually don’t like to repeat so much of what someone else has written – BUT, this is important for all people working in public accounting to read. Things like: We could be 20% more profitable, but we’re not here to make the most money we can. We make long term investments. We’ll walk away from profitable clients if they are not a…

  • Part-Timers

    Jeff Pierce
    15 Sep 2014 | 8:50 pm
    The reason why most people “thank goodness it’s friday” is because full-time jobs are often highly stressful and demanding environments. The pay may not adequately reflect the amount of emotional, mental and physical energy invested. In these situations, the disgruntled employee is not hard to find. Whether the full-time work is taxing or a person is looking for a stimulating and rewarding activity, part-time work is an incredible place to start. This extra income can be useful for saving for a future trip or maybe for a down payment on a home. Either way, making sure you…

  • Options Witching Effects on Stock Prices

    chris
    14 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    By Chris Ebert These days, there are lots of different options expirations available, so no single expiration is quite as important as it may have been in the past when availability was much more limited. Even so, some options expiration dates, such as September 20, 2014 are more significant than others because they coincide with expirations of other derivative contracts, namely futures. When the expirations of options and futures coincide – generally on the third Friday of March, June, September and December – the effect on the stock market can be magnified. The term witching is often…
  • Obvious Support Levels Are Not A Good Thing

    jeff pierce
    13 Sep 2014 | 8:52 pm
    By Jeff Pierce Gold and Silver both look as though they are approaching some obvious support levels and when I start to see things that look too obvious I start to think the opposite is going to happen. Gold’s support is roughly $1160-1220 as it’s not even in that zone yet, but Silver is in it’s support zone ($18.20-18.70) Watch how Gold reacts at it’s upper level or how Silver reacts to it’s lower level (whichever comes first) for clues. It’s to early to know if support is going to hold and placing bets right now in my opinion is really just gambling. One…

  • Buy SPY Puts Today and Be Flat Into the FOMC Statement - Possible Air Pocket Today

    pete@oneoption.com
    16 Sep 2014 | 11:08 am
    Posted 9:10 AM ET - There is not much new to add. We are waiting for the FOMC. I did lower the stop on my SPY puts to $199 (closing basis). Last Friday the market poked below horizontal support at SPY $199. This is a critical level because it represents the breakout in August. Bullish speculators who bought the breakout are on the verge of getting flushed out. I believe we will see nervous price action ahead of the FOMC on Wednesday. This is a binary event. Either the Fed will remove the phrase "considerable time" or they will leave it …

    Posted 9:45 AM ET - Last Friday the market poked below horizontal support at SPY $199. This is a critical level because it represents the breakout in August. Bullish speculators who bought the breakout are on the verge of getting flushed out. I believe we will see nervous price action ahead of the FOMC on Wednesday. This is a binary event. Either the Fed will remove the phrase "considerable time" or they will leave it unchanged. The outcome will result in a sustained directional move. A number of news sources I rely on feel that the phrase will be removed and …
  • Bullish Specs Could Get Flushed Out Ahead of the Fed. Use SPY $199 As Your Guide

    pete@oneoption.com
    12 Sep 2014 | 11:47 am
    Posted 9:50 AM ET - Yesterday, the market probed for support early in the day. Buyers stepped in before SPY $199 was tested and stocks rebounded. Everything hinges on the FOMC statement next week and we are likely to chop around in a tight range until then. If the Fed keeps the phrase "considerable time" in their statement, the market will rally. I believe this is the most likely scenario. They will end the bond purchase program in October and they will try to get through that meeting without spooking the market. Bond Managers will sell bonds on strong economic releases. …

    Posted 9:20 AM ET - The market feels heavy. A few weeks ago, we broke through resistance at SPY $199 on light volume. Traders returned after Labor Day and stocks have not been able to advance. The FOMC will release its statement next Wednesday. Many analysts believe that the phrase "considerable time" will be removed or altered. That would signal that the Fed's timetable for tightening has been moved forward. Even if the language does not change next Wednesday, Bond Managers will be selling bonds on every strong economic release. They know that the focus will shift to tightening when the …

Traders will be watching for any change in the Fed's statement. In particular, they want to see if the phrase "considerable time" changes. If it does, it will signal that the Fed's tightening timetable has been moved forward. I believe they will keep the language the same. The Fed will end its bond purchase program in October and that will be a big enough shock for the market to …

    Ways in which companies can avoid the risks of retaliation, which have risen since the Supreme Court's Lawson ruling Corporations may need to reassess their retaliation policies now that the SEC has filed its first anti-retaliation enforcement action under Dodd-Frank. The SEC’s indication that it will aggressively pursue such cases and the Supreme Court’s recent decision broadening the scope of who is covered by whistleblower protection laws have potentially made retaliation claims a much more significant risk for many companies, and analysts suggest they pay close attention.

That’s the word from the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), which marked its 20th anniversary last year with the release of COSO 2013, an update of the original 1992 COSO Framework for internal controls that firms need to implement…

At one well-known, well-respected company, an executive on the transactions team didn’t raise a question he had about a $2 billion acquisition out of fear of being embarrassed by the CEO, who was known for being dismissive and verbally abusive.

    There are many credit repair companions today claiming eternal protection from bankruptcies, judgments, liens, and bad loans from your credit file. They even assert the dubious erasure of bad credit from one’s finances. But don’t you be fooled by these claims!

Ask anyone who’s tried to save money regularly and they’ll tell you that despite the best intentions in the world, a badly-timed bill, rising living costs and just paying for everyday items can get in the way of saving. For example, according to the MYJAR infographic, the average Brit spends about £554 a year, per person on their holiday. It’s not a huge amount but break it down and you’ll have to be…

    Once a graduate degree was considered one of the most prestigious and pursued degrees in the world, and most would agree that it still holds its place. Twenty or even ten years ago, having a graduate degree did allow an applicant to stand apart from the crowd.  Now a graduate degree is almost as common as a bachelor’s degree, making it more akin to a minimum requirement. If you are considering the pursuit of a graduate degree or if your children or grandchildren are considering the investment, there is hidden and potentially very high opportunity cost to doing so.

Or maybe you’re a grandparent that has earmarked a portion of your liquid assets to help provide the capital to cover tuition for your grandchildren. Of course, some kids will receive scholarships, but others must use financial aid that will leave them graduating college with a debt burden that they will repay with a future income.

It is much easier to leave money and property to your heirs. When I was growing up, I wanted my parent’s time, unfortunately they were always busy. In order to spend time with them, I had to work.

    You never get a second chance to make a first impression. (Andrew Grant) I know we should not judge people, but we do! Remember when you met your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband for the first time? You made a decision to approach or be approachable. I am not talking about love at first sight, but you were interested. You look for verbal or nonverbal clues that the interest is mutual. When you interview or meet a business acquaintance for the first time, both of you are sizing each other up. Little things such as how you are dressed, speak and act will influence your first impression.
  • Buy a New Car or Used Car?

    Krantcents
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:08 am
    Buy a new car or a used car? Is this a trick question? Many personal finance experts recommend buying a used car versus a new car because it has already depreciated some of its value and you get a better deal. Particularly if you find a used car off a lease and it was well maintained. Many car dealers offer certified used cars with warranties and you save 30-40% over new.  The internet has made shopping for cars much easier. Buying a car is never a fun process, but a little information makes it more transparent and you can negotiate with the dealer much easier. I remember a time when I went…

Medical credit cards are designed specifically to pay for health expenses — from cosmetic surgery to dental work or even vet care for the family pet — and typically are marketed in doctor, dentist and veterinary offices. When her husband broke a crown on his tooth, Texas resident Lorraine Milton says her family used CareCredit, a medical card from Synchrony Bank, to pay about half of the $2,000 bill, which was partly…
  • What's a potential employer looking for in a credit check?

    9 Sep 2014 | 11:20 am
    Hi Erica, I am on my third and hopefully final interview for a job as a receptionist for a clothing and accessories company that just opened up. The manager said they would be checking my credit and for me to sign off on it. I have a credit card with a pretty low balance, just $600. Should I pay it off now? I'm broke, but if it means I'll get the job, I probably can do it. I'm scared. I want this job! Should I say no? If I do say no, can they not hire me? –Jewel Dear Jewel, Stop fretting this instant! You are more than fine. Trust me. Since you've gotten this far in…

    wendy
    16 Sep 2014 | 5:36 am
    Better news for cash-strapped families this week, as the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rate of inflation drops back to 1.5% in August and is back down to its lowest level since October 2009. Data published by the Office for National Statistics shows that inflation for the year since August 2013 has only increased by 1.5%, and has kept well below the Bank of England’s target of 2%. Supermarket price wars are one of the main reasons that inflation has been falling, particularly as top end supermarkets are keen to compete with budget supermarkets that are doing so well, such as Lidl and Aldi.

  • Lib Dems Pledge to End Pensioner Benefits to Fund Younger People’s Travel

    wendy
    11 Sep 2014 | 7:09 am
    The Liberal Democrats have announced plans in their manifesto that would see wealthier pensioners stripped of benefits such as free TV licences and bus passes, and winter fuel allowance to make way for subsidised travel for the under-21s. Current Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, said that pensioner benefits for those who were wealthier were not justifiable and the money could be better utilised to help young people.    The party wants any pensioner who is in the 40% tax bracket to forego pensioner benefits, which if they were elected would affect around 600,000 retirees. The cuts would…
  • Britons amongst earliest workers to draw pension in the EU, but more likely to still be working past 65

    According to research published by the European Commission, Britons are the first to start drawing their pensions in the EU, but we also the most likely to still be working after the state retirement age of 65. Financial experts have said the data shows that many people who choose to access large chunks of their pension once the new freedom reforms come into action next April, run the risk of running out of money and having to return to work or work for longer than they had anticipated.      They feel that those who delay retirement for longer are more likely to be financially secure…

    The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has announced that it is weeks away from telling people due to retire soon how much state pension they will receive under the new ‘flat rate’ system. Statements will be sent out to workers due to retire over the next few years which will tell them an estimate how much state pension they are entitled to depending on how many years of National Insurance Contributions they have made. In addition the statements will tell people how much they will need to ‘top up’ their NI contributions by if they wish to receive the full state pension.    So far…

    The Government has announced that the age a saver will be able to access their pension under the new freedom rules will increase with life expectancy. This means that today a person can access their pension pot next April at the age of 55, whereas someone who is 40 or younger may have to wait an extra three years before they can get their hands on their nest egg.     In 2008, the ‘private pension age’ will increase from its current 55 years to 56 years and from then on will be continuously linked so that it is always ten years below the state pension age which is due to go up by several…

    The SPX daily RSI 5 closed at 32.79 yesterday, and the retracement is now larger than two of the past 29 signals since the start of 2007. SPX has reached a level where a low wouldn't be an extreme statistical outlier. This isn't a false signal that is part of a larger sell signal forming however, so once I strip out the four of those, then 20 of the remaining 25 signals made it to the target level at 30 on the RSI 5. This retracement may well make it there as well. There is something else to consider as well. SPX has broken below the daily middle band, and confirmed that break by holding…
  • Bearish Setups For Fed Week

    Heading into today, stocks looked like they were on the cusp of a significant sell-off.  But after some rumors circulating about what the Fed will be doing going forward in regards to interest rates, well, the market is back above 2000 and looking to make another push towards all-time highs.  With the FOMC Statement coming out tomorrow, I don't necessarily think this is a good time to add either long or short positions. From the short side, the bulls have broken the nicely formed downward channel on the SPX 30 minute chart. However, today's events reeks of "Buy-the-Rumor and…

    I was saying on Friday morning that the bear case shouldn't be written off yet and, well here we are. The bounce failed at the 50 hour MA and SPX made a new low, closing well below the daily middle band. In terms of past RSI 5 / NYMO sell signals the situation is improved as the decline is now larger than two of the 29 sell signal declines back to the start of 2007, and I'd also note that SPX and Dow also made the 38.2% fib retracement levels at the low on Friday, if this turns out to be a wave 4 retracement.

What often strikes me when talking with them is their tendency to believe that when it comes to investing, they should take as much risk as they can. After all, if they are saving to buy a house, or for the more long-sighted ones thinking about retirement, they figure that more risk means more return, so why not reach as far as possible? They are young; sure there may be bumps along the investment road, but they have the time and patience to…

    A slowdown is palpable in most of the Latin American nations and Peru is no exception. Most of Central and South American countries are rich in commodities which are presently exhibiting a downtrend. Peru was South America’s fastest growing economy having expanded at an average rate of over 6% per annum since 2002 with moderate inflation. However, the economy has recently slowed down due to a decline in prices for commodities. Notably, Peru is a large producer of precious metals and China is the major user. A slowdown in China has consequently resulted in the sluggish performance by the…

They have a “bewildering” effect on people, says Howard Rachlin, a professor emeritus of psychology at Stony Brook University. So we tend to lump them together; 1 in 10,000 sounds just as bewildering as 1 in 100,000.

    Recently we talked about how important it is to take vacations.

After all, homework assignments have to be completed, sports practices have to be attended, and goodnight well-wishes have to be given, even during a week-long business trip to another hemisphere.   What tools do people use to make life easier?

You can find the page here.   Any feedback / suggestions would be happily received as always (you can catch me on aftab@greshams-law.com).   Hope you find it useful.

    28 Jun 2014 | 1:30 am
    It’s fair to say that among those of us buried deep in the paranoid depths of the alt-finance community, a certain suspicion exists when it comes to government economic statistics. I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to claim that among the broader population, cynicism about such stats is also increasing. We have after all seen a senior policeman testify in parliament to the corruption of official crime stats, just as rigorous studies have shown grade inflation in school exam results. Why should economics be immune from this malign trend?   Still: suspicion is one thing; hard…

    Thomas Gresham
    7 Jun 2014 | 2:16 am
    Niall Ferguson and Andreas Schaab (Harvard) and Moritz Schularick (The Bonn Institute of Macroeconomics and Econometrics) have an interesting new study out detailing the history of central bank balance sheet expansions and contractions in “12 advanced economies since 1900.”   Mainstream economists tend to belittle the significance of this subject. Monetarists and Keynesians regard an elastic money supply, manipulated by central banks, as a desirable weapon to be used in smoothing out the business cycle. Some economists even go so far as to argue that with interest rates at record…

Whoa, don’t all rush for the exit at the same time; this is worth your time – an interesting examination of the tensions that can crop up between free-market capitalism and conservatism. Rule changes announced by Chancellor George Osborne in his March budget mean that retirees with private pensions will no longer be…

      Peter Schiff and Nouriel Roubini, two of the original “Doctor Dooms”, go at it hammer and tongs in the video above, in a discussion on the state of the US economy and the perennial inflation versus deflation debate. Not much love lost between them, though they keep the discussion civil.   What interests me is Roubini’s continual references to the Great Depression and Japan’s experience since 1990 as evidence that deflation is always bad. Yes, this is one side of the story. No one, not even Schiff, is arguing that debt-deflation – when falling prices…

The IPO, which is expected this summer, has some analysts predicting that as much as $20 bn could be raised in what will be the largest listing of a Chinese company in the US. In a company filing of more than 300 pages, Alibaba, which handles four-fifths of online retail transactions in China, listed revenue of $5.66 bn and net income of $2.85 bn for the nine months ended December 31.

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    12 Sep 2014 | 7:02 am
    A week ago today, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released its jobs market report for the month of August. To say the very least, there was nothing in that report that says the labor market in the U.S. economy is back on its feet. In fact, the report painted a gruesome image of employment in this country. In August, 142,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy—the lowest monthly pace in 2014. And the jobs market numbers previously released for June and July were revised lower. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, September 5, 2014.) But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Americans who…

    Large-cap technology stocks, particularly old-school names, have really been on the rise, though they remain an untold story this year. Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) is on a major upward price trend and is getting close to its all-time record-high set during the technology bubble of 1999. The company’s stock market performance has been tremendous as of late, rising from around $27.00 a share at the beginning of 2013 to its current level of approximately $47.00, its 52-week high. Its share price has increased by more than $10.00 this year alone. (See “Eight Stocks to Beat the Street.”)…
  • Why I’m More Excited About the Food Sector Than Apple’s Latest Products

    George Leong, B.Comm.
    12 Sep 2014 | 1:45 am
    While the entire world was waiting for and anticipating the next-generation “iPhone 6” from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ/AAPL) on Tuesday, General Mills, Inc. (NYSE/GIS) announced it was acquiring organic and natural food company Annies, Inc. (NYSE/BNNY). Okay, the launch of the iPhone 6 was clearly more exciting, but so what? The launch was more hype than substance, unless you consider a new and bigger iPhone earth-shattering. But I’m not here to talk about Apple. What I will discuss is the food sector, especially the makers of organic and natural food products, which appear to be in play, based…
  • About That $38-Million Ferrari…

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    10 Sep 2014 | 6:51 am
    A 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta has set a new record selling for $38.1 million at an auction in Pebble Beach, California. News of the sale was all over the Internet and made it into major newspapers like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times. But it’s not just old, rare cars that are selling. The high-end luxury car market is also booming. For example, Maserati sold 6,573 cars this past July, compared to only 1,536 cars a year ago. (Source: Motor Intelligence web site, last accessed September 2, 2014.) The markets for high-end real estate and high-end…
  • Two Blue Chips with Excellent Upside

    Mitchell Clark, B.Comm.
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:49 am
    There’s good resilience to this market. On most days, the NASDAQ Composite is still beating both the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average comparatively, which is bullish. Lots of stocks are pushing new highs and many seem to be breaking out of their previous near-term trends. NIKE, Inc. (NKE) is a large-cap, dividend-paying company that I view as attractive for long-term investors. The stock has been in consolidation, trading range-bound since the beginning of the year but is finally breaking out and pushing through the $80.00-per-share level. This position went up tremendously last…

    Heather Wagenhals was back on with us discussing the new, or not so new, Verizon 28 scam. That's where a robocall informs you that because you're such a wonderfull Verizon customer, you're entitled to get $30 back, just go to the Verizon28 website. Give them your account information and then you'll get the credit applied to your next bill, except that the instead of the credit, you'll get a nice $300 charge. Evidently, it's been going on for quite some time and Verizon hasn't been doing much, if anything about it. Be on the look for this and a whole lot more.

While timing is always tricky, the near universal bearish sentiment could be the best indicator that the triple bottom will be the final bottom for the yellow metal. While retail investment demand for the gold is near non-existent, there's still plenty of jewelry demand and it might not take much to get it going higher again.

    NEW YORK — Brent and US crude futures rose more than a dollar on Tuesday on the prospect of a possible Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) production cut and on news that Libya curbed output after rockets hit an area near a refinery. Oil prices pushed higher early after Opec secretary general Abdallah El-Badri told reporters he expected the group to lower its oil output target to 29.5-million barrels per day (bpd) from 30-million bpd when it meets next in late November.

    In the overnight electronic session the December Corn is currently trading at 348 which is 5 cents higher. The trading range has been 350 ½ to 342 ¼ so far. Cooler than norm temps couple with light rains have enticed buyers back to the market.  As we head into the weekend we should see the lower temps moderate and see warmer and dryer weather during the overnight and should be conducive to sell ant rallies at this time. On the Ethanol front there were no trades posted in the overnight electronic session. The October contract settled at 1.821 and is showing 1 bid @ 1.816 and 1 offer @…

In a report on developments in collateral management services the BIS said sell-side firms have historically optimised collateral to settle repo and securities lending transactions and margin calls. However asset managers and pension funds had a less sophisticated approach as they tend to own high quality securities and have had fewer collateral obligations. The report said: “However, the…

    Keith McDonald
    10 Sep 2014 | 9:27 am
    A fixed-rate bond is a savings product that returns a set amount of interest over a set period of time. So, for example, if you commit to a 2-year bond offering 2%, you’ll receive this annual rate guaranteed for 2 years.Bonds are generally available for between 1 year and 5 year terms. The longer you commit your funds, the higher rate of interest you’ll normally receive.Bonds also have a minimum deposit, which can range from £1 to over £10,000. A higher minimum deposit may be less accessible, but it often leads to higher rates.Once you’ve committed to a bond, you’re not normally…

So, how do ISAs work?(Disclaimer: due to changes in regulations, some of the details in this video are now outdated. The script below and our guide to New ISAs both reflect the changes to tax-free acounts.)Every tax year, savers receive a tax-free allowance. From April 6, this was raised to £11,880.

  • Credit Card Debt Reaches Post Recession High

    John Oldshue
    16 Sep 2014 | 8:51 am
    New credit card debt in America hit a post-recession high in the second quarter of 2014, reaching a total of $28.2 billion, according to a new study. That is the largest amount of debt since the economic downturn and almost 200% more than the second quarter of 2009. This new debt comes as somewhat of a surprise since Americans just paid off $32.5 billion of credit card debt during the first quarter of 2014. Now, consumers have charged 86% more money in the second quarter, with the average household credit card debt near $6,800. This is still lower than the $8,431 average at the end of 2008,…

In terms of ease and convenience, payment cards represented a big leap from the era of cash. Apple hopes its system will be a comparable leap from the era of cards. Skeptics have focused on questions of security and privacy, but prospective users might want to pause over a different problem: when payment becomes easier, and when people don't see the money they're handing over, they tend to spend a lot more.

    AG Holder spent part of his summer in Ferguson, while Jon Corzine played in the Hamptons. It was a good thing Ferguson reminded Holder about New Jersey, and it was timely that James Woods reminded him about equal justice under law, otherwise we might have a two-tiered system of justice where connections and campaign contributions can ensure immunity from criminal prosecution.

    Almost six years after the financial crisis, JPMorgan, Citigroup, and Bank of America face fines of around $12 billion each for their role in mortgage malfeasance. In the context of the damage done and the bailout money poured into banks; the fines are miniscule and won't even cover the damage done in one or two blighted areas.

    Bridging loans (and bridging finance) is a subject that has garnered an increasing amount of media attention over the last couple of years.  The reason for this raising of awareness in the industry comes from a reluctance from mainstream lenders to approve large short-term loans for home owners and property investors. Bridging finance offers quick access to funds, but does come with interest rates higher than the norm.  This is because they are designed to be paid off quickly and swiftly.  Borrowers apply for them due to needing quick access to funds, mainly concerning property…

The short answer is that the location of your provider should not be a consideration in your decision of who to work with. Most factoring companies can easily work with anyone as long as they have access to email and phone. Your best bet is to work with someone that is a good fit for your business.

    16 Sep 2014 | 6:28 am
    Right now, a lot of people are looking for ways to get better interest on their savings, particularly because the rates on savings accounts are so low at the moment. A certificate of deposit – or CD – is one way to do this, although you still shouldn’t expect great rates if you do buy one. The way that a CD works is really quite simple. You buy a CD from your bank for a certain amount of money – for example, the $10,000 in your savings account – and the bank guarantees to give you a fixed interest rate on this for an agreed period of time, which can vary from 6 months up to 10 years…

  • Can I Lease A Car With Bad Credit?

    admin
    15 Sep 2014 | 5:01 am
    Bad credit can impact your ability to get a car, whether you buy or lease one. However, the effect is usually more pronounced when you try to get a lease because most car leasing firms only approve clients that have good credit. That being said, it is still possible for those with tainted credit histories and low credit scores to get approved for a car lease. Of course, you won’t be able to get the best deals. Since you are considered a subprime borrower and viewed as a high credit risk, you won’t be given the best interest rates—that is, you’ll be granted the lease but at a higher…

    We have all been getting poor interest rates on our savings for the last several years, so this is a question that many people are asking. In fact, there are a number of different factors that affect interest rates – both overall and for particular types of loans. Perhaps the most important factor is something known as government monetary policy. In the US, the Federal Reserve uses interest rates – among other things – to manage the economy. For example, low interest rates tend to stimulate the economy, which is important when the economy is growing slowly or there is a recession. In…

    Michael Kitces
    15 Sep 2014 | 4:01 am
    For years, industry commentators have been anticipating an “onslaught” of retiring baby boomer advisors who will begin to engage in succession planning en masse and sell their firms over the next decade. Yet year after year, the baby boomers get older, and the sellers don’t materialize; with an astonishing paucity of sellers to external buyers and an abundance of buyers, it remains a seller’s market for financial advisory firms. Yet in a new book, David Grau (founder of FP Transitions, a firm that has potentially already been involved with more advisory firm sales than any other…

    Michael Kitces
    10 Sep 2014 | 4:01 am
    The Social Security file-and-suspend strategy has been used primarily for couples to coordinate the delay of individual retirement benefits (earning delayed retirement credits) while making a spouse eligible to begin his/her spousal benefits. It can also be used as a partial form of "undo" for a retiree who started benefits early, and later wishes to suspend them (at full retirement age) to earn delayed retirement credits (a benefits increase that can partially or fully offset the decrease triggered by electing benefits early in the first place). However, the strategy to file and suspend…

  • Using PO Financing with Asset Based Lending

    Marco Terry
    26 Aug 2014 | 9:55 am
    Generally, companies don’t use purchase order financing as a stand-alone product. Instead, they combine it with another financing solution, such as factoring. The reason both products are used together is that combining them often reduces total transaction costs. These savings benefit the client and drop directly to the bottom line.The purchase order financing line is used to pay for the initial purchase order costs. Once the order is delivered and the customer receives an invoice, the line is closed and paid back from the proceeds of the factoring line.However, not every customer…
  • How is a Subordination Used in Invoice Factoring?

    Marco Terry
    26 Aug 2014 | 8:14 am
    In most cases, setting up a factoring account is relatively simple. Once the factoring contracts are signed, the factor files a UCC lien to secure its position against the accounts receivable, sends notices of assignment, and starts funding the account. Usually, this process is done fairly quickly.One of the most common reasons to delay funding a factoring account is that there is an existing UCC lien that claims account receivable – your invoices – as collateral. In this scenario, the factor cannot claim first position against the accounts receivable it’s financing…

    Road Construction forms the most crucial part of the economy. As per the National Highways Authority of India, about 65% of freight and 80% passenger traffic is carried by the roads. The National Highways carry about 40% of total road traffic, though only about 2% of the road network is covered by these roads.

  • Would you like to be the ‘lucky idiot’ or the ‘skillful investor’?

    Aliya Sayyed-Team MoneyWorks4me
    5 Sep 2014 | 3:46 am
    ‘You make your own luck’ - The popularity of this statement comes from the basic human urge to deny any existence of luck and thus have a feeling of ultimate control over one’s future. Yet I more than agree with Howard Marks, when he says in his recent memo that ‘even the hardest workers and the best decision makers among us will fail to succeed consistently without luck’ Randomness (or luck) plays a huge part in in our lives as it does in investing. Thus, while analysing an investment that you made in the past or analysing a successful strategy that worked in the past, it is…

    ‘Patience is a virtue’, more so in the world of investing! Patiently waiting for bargains to come your way, is often the best strategy an investor can follow. We are constantly dealing with different market conditions. It is important for us to realize the investment environment we are currently in and act accordingly. There may be times when greed and fear are balanced. At such times, everything will be fairly priced. And thus markets may not present great buying opportunities at bargain prices or selling at irrationally high prices. And at such times, doing nothing at all is the best…

    In the fifth article of our Series on ‘The Most Important Thing’, we show you why if a certain investment is too good to be true, it probably is… Time and time again, the post-mortems of financial debacles include two classic phrases: “It was too good to be true” and “What were they thinking?” Why do we investors keep making such mistakes repeatedly? Because investing is an action undertaken by human beings, most of who are at the mercy of their psyches and emotions. According to Marks, there are four important emotions that govern our behaviour: Greed: The first emotion that…

If you’ve been an investor long enough, you know by now that the one similarity it has to life is that, there are very few sure things. You can be wrong about the value of the company, your assumptions and estimates, sometimes the circumstances may itself change and sometimes even a sure shot event may not occur.

    Success. It comes in many different shapes and forms. It is not something that is measured by a scale or ruler yet it is defined by the person who seeks it. Success is an overwhelming feat of obstacles and adversity but will come with just the smallest amount of hope and hard work.

There is no specific order and it does not have to be done all at once, in fact that would be impossible.

The problem with achieving 1 million dollars is most people spend the money they have right now, so the only way for them to get there is to win it, and lets be honest, that doesn’t just “happen”. How can we fix this? The short answer is money management. To start we need to look at what we have and what we can do today to get us there tomorrow.

    The first time I heard that question I was very confused as to why someone would say poor OR broke however listening to the reasoning, it made total sense. To get a full understanding on the differences between the two we must reflect back on our personal lives and habits. Look deeper than that thing we bought one time at this one place or hung out with that one person that one time. We need to look at the reason we bought that thing or hung out with that person. Dissecting the actions we do, or just consciously thinking about why we did something, will allow us to understand our finically…

  • Lessons Learned, Jackson Hole, Two Experiments, and Tail Risks

    Jack Rivkin
    27 Aug 2014 | 4:38 pm
    The message coming out of Jackson Hole was a belief that, while any decisions will be data-driven, the Fed will not rush to raise the Funds rate. At the same time, Mario Draghi’s words were viewed as “dovish” with the likelihood that Quantitative Easing (QE) by the European Central Bank (ECB) will occur at some point soon in Europe. While this is clearly the consensus, we do have two experiments going on and we can all speculate about the outcomes. Now, on to my speculations. I’ll start by suggesting that one read Mohamed El-Erian’s latest piece in Bloomberg View where he posits…

As importantly the GDP  annual revisions which take place at this time revised up the numbers for 2013. This has tended to reconcile the GDP numbers with what has been happening in the labor markets and elsewhere.  We still have some wood to chop but this raises the odds that interest rates in the US will likely rise sooner than the futures and the pundits have been saying. It is our view that the Fed will most likely react in a…

  • Four Proven Ways Trucking Companies Can Improve Their Cash Flow

    An Ansonia Guest Author: Marco Terry
    10 Sep 2014 | 7:33 am
    Managing the cash flow of a trucking company has always been difficult. As a business owner, you have to manage the constant tug-of-war between revenues and expenses. On one hand, your revenues come from brokers and shippers who usually don’t offer quick-pays. Instead, they want to pay their freight bills in 30 to 90 days. On the other hand, you have to deal with company expenses that need to be paid regularly. A number of these expenses, such as maintenance and fuel, have to be paid as you incur them. In this scenario you can run out of cash, especially if you are growing quickly.

    "If you want something new you have to stop doing something old." – Peter F. Drucker Access to fresh, current data is vital for effective credit management in any industry. Without accurate information, it's difficult or almost impossible to vet new clients, perform periodic reviews, track changes in payment habits, identify problem debtors or make credit increase decisions. If you're looking for an affordable alternative for managing your company's risk, cash flow and payment practices, perhaps it's time to heed the wisdom of the man who invented the concept of management.
