    A note has been circulating among economists, calling into question the wisdom of another group of economists who wrote an open letter to the Federal Reserve a few years ago suggesting that one of the risks of their quantitative easing program was increased inflation. Since we have not seen CPI inflation, this latter group is calling upon the former to admit they were wrong, that quantitative easing does not in fact cause inflation. To no one’s surprise, Paul Krugman has written rather nastily and arrogantly about the lack of CPI inflation. Cliff Asness has responded with a thoughtful…

Or, to put it in macroeconomic terms, “Why is global growth so disappointing?” In the aftermath of the Great Recession, fearing a deflationary equilibrium (which, as Ben notes, is macroeconomic-speak for falling into a well, breaking your leg, at night, alone), the Fed bought trillions of dollars in assets … and saved the world.

    Many people have talked about many types of income oriented funds and in many cases, they do not have a bright future ahead, there are some income based mutual funds that are even better than lower risk equity funds. Though some people have written about the risks in income investments like bonds and other high yield investments, it definitely makes sense if you want to own these high income funds. There are many people who have no choice but to own high income funds, yielding high interest rate, and threatening the recent, strong performance, that a lot of these funds enjoyed. Not all the…

    Naturally, if you are shopping for a home loan, you will want to find a good mortgage broker, but there are a variety of services that mortgage brokers in Saskatoon can provide you. Consolidate your debts  One overlooked service is debt consolidation. Loans are available to pay off all of your debts, leaving you with a single payment each month. Debt becomes manageable, and only one payment needs to be paid. In addition, the payment will be less than the total of your monthly payments you are currently making for your credit cards and other miscellaneous loans. Refinancing If you have equity…

    They say there is nothing certain in life except death and taxes, so why not start your own tax preparation business. It is easy to start this type of business, and it is as close to as stable of a business as you will ever see. Regardless of the condition of the economy, there will always be a demand for people to prepare their taxes. Although there is a lot to know about preparing taxes, the truth is that much of the work that is done today is done with software.

    With the advent of email, there does not seem to be many offerings that come in the mail these days. However, wouldn’t it be a treat if a credit offer for a new car was placed in one’s mailbox? That mailing could be a result of trigger mailing. Trigger mailing is when targeted individuals are provided mail that offers lines of credit or financial packages to them. The person is targeted based on their circumstance instead of just being a random consumer. The “trigger” is the life event or behavior that the marketer determines can result in future transactions.

  • Tuesday: Existing Home Sales

    Bill McBride
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:09 pm
    From Dina ElBoghdady at the WaPo: How a top housing regulator plans to make it easier to get a mortgage. Excerpts: It’s unclear if Watt's downpayment plan will do much to ease access to credit. The average downpayment remains lower today than it was in more normal, pre-housing bubble times, said Sam Khater, chief deputy economist at CoreLogic. That’s because the Federal Housing Administration – which backs loans with as little as 5 percent down -- has a larger share of the mortgage market than usual, Khater said. Having Fannie and Freddie also accept downpayments as low as 5 percent…

    I frequently hear stories from prime borrowers about their horrible experiences getting mortgages right now. Yes, the process is difficult because of all the extra checks because the lenders are afraid the loans will be put back to them in a few years.At the same time, loan officers are telling me it is easy for prime borrowers to get a loan.This isn't a contradiction - an onerous process isn't "tight credit", it is just risk management.  But that is for prime borrowers.First, here is a piece today from Mark Fleming, chief economist at CoreLogic, writes: Is Credit Too Tight, Too Loose or…

    As of today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has erased all of its gains this year. We’re not quite in “market correction” territory, though. The S&P 500 is still up year-to-date, but it isn’t presenting as fantastic a return as was evident earlier in the year. We could be getting to the point where the market finds itself in the midst of a market correction. I wouldn’t pretend to be able to predict the daily, weekly, monthly, or annual swings of the stock market, but there’s no reason to rule a correction out as a possibility. Investing professionals…

We see the similarities in roles and responsibilities and believe that intelligence and talent in one area leads to success in another. The same bias happens in ourselves.

But determining the value of your house, especially if it’s the house you live in and not something you track as an investment, can be tricky. It’s easy to determine the value of your mortgage to include that in your net worth calculation. Just look at the latest statement from the lender. The statement will highlight your remaining balance, and it’s a number you can’t escape if you do in fact, as you should, look at your statement every month. The house can be…

    Statistically, 80 to 90 percent of you live outside of California. When you read reports of the drought in California, then, your reaction may be something like, “Bummer for those dudes. Patti, please pass the peas.” You might want to reconsider, though, because chances are this drought could affect you more than you think. Saying the drought in California is severe is a bit like saying the Queen Mary is a nice little boat. At least one Bay Area scientist says that, based on historic tree ring data, the 2013-2014 rainfall season is on pace to be the driest since 1580 (not a typo).

Some individuals, however, have tried to use a religious vow of poverty to avoid taxes altogether. In these egregious tax evasion cases, they haven't been successful. Poverty vow was a poor tax argument: Take the case of Timothy Dale Jackson.

    The previous post looked at three market measures that assess strength vs. weakness from the bottom up; that is, by looking at all the components of a stock index, rather than the time series for the index itself.  Above we see three additional bottom up measures that I update daily and below I will describe how I utilize these.The top chart displays what I call the Momentum Curve (data obtained from the excellent Index Indicators site).  This enables us to see the percentages of stocks in the SPX average that are trading above moving averages of varying lengths across the past five…
  • Looking at Technical Indicators From the Bottom Up

    18 Oct 2014 | 3:24 am
    Typically, if we want to use a technical indicator to gauge the strength or weakness of a given market index, we will simply apply that indicator to the price series for that index.  Suppose, however, we took a different approach, from the bottom up, rather than the top down.  Suppose we applied the indicator to every single stock within the index and gauged strength and weakness via the breadth of individual buy and sell signals.Above are three charts that take a bottom up view of the recent market.  (Data obtained via the excellent Stock Charts site).  The top chart will…
  • What Market Breadth Has Been Telling Us Lately

    17 Oct 2014 | 2:17 am
    Here are two updated views of stock market breadth.  Recall that it was waning breadth that gave us a heads up on the recent market weakness.  What we're now seeing is the reverse.The top chart monitors all common stocks traded on the major exchanges making three-month new highs vs. three-month new lows.  We can see from the chart that this decline has been much broader than ones previous.  New lows hit their maximum level so far on October 10th and then held slightly above that level at the market low on October 15th.  With yesterday's buying interest--my Buying…

    The weekly market update is posted at Alpha Baskets and includes the following; Despite the incredibly remote possibility of contracting the disease (Ebola) the media has fed the fire with words like epidemic and outbreak. Bloomberg cited research that there could be as many as two dozen cases in the US by November, so that is 24 cases out of 310 million people. How many people will die today driving to work?

    This week’s Market Update is posted at Alpha Baskets; With all that went on, why not throw in a couple of sovereign debt downgrades? S&P cut France to AA and Finland, which uses the euro as its currency was downgraded to AA+ by S&P. The US of course long ago lost its AAA rating but at AA+ it is higher than that of France yet the US yields 105 basis points more. The recent trend of dollar strength reversed last week with the greenback weak against the yen, euro and British pound perhaps caused by Fed comments as well as the drop in yields.

There is always a bull case and a bear case but over the last couple of months the bear case has grown stronger. This is not an attempt to predict when the market turns but it is important to understand the current market environment. From the post; Market breadth has also deteriorated.

  • Ten Years For Random Roger

    Roger Nusbaum
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:33 am
    Today is the tenth anniversary for the Random Roger blog. I started blogging by accident, although I was doing some writing, when I downloaded FireFox for the first time and Blogger was one of the bookmarks already loaded in. Before then I’d had something short published in Barron’s and had a few things published at Motley Fool. Starting in 2004 made me relatively early in blogging, I was not any sort of pioneer but was early enough to get a fair bit of MSM coverage back in the early days. The traffic to the site has often been decent (I think) but never huge like some folks get…

  • Is a 36% Cap Radical?

    Nathalie Martin
    19 Oct 2014 | 2:03 pm
    I was pleased to see today’s New York Times editorial entitled “A Rate Cap for All Consumer Loans.”  It created a very public description of an industry indiscretion involving loaning money to the military at over 36%. Those loans are illegal because a federal law makes it so, a law that passed with broad and deep bipartisan support because trapping military personnel in high-cost loans interferes with military readiness and thus threatens national security. This editorial, not in some fringe publication, but rather the New York Times, argues that we all deserve the same protections…
  • Unseal the Doomsday Book!

    Adam Levitin
    14 Oct 2014 | 6:40 pm
    When I first heard about the NY Fed's Doomsday book, my initial thought was, "Wow, they've got a comprehensive survey of land titles, so MERS really isn't an issue!" Then I realized it was a Doomsday book, not a Domesday book. Apparently the Doomsday book is some sort of "in case of emergency" do-it-yourself bailouts manual that outlines the steps the NY Fed believes it can legally take to stave off economic Armageddon.  I'm rather puzzled by the NY Fed's claim that it should be kept under seal.  I guess we'll find out more of the Fed's…
  • Bankruptcy Filings Are Low, But Not Everywhere

    Bob Lawless
    10 Oct 2014 | 1:35 pm
    Bankruptcy filings have dipped to their lowest rate since 1990, as previously blogged (ignoring anomalous statistical gyrations around the 2005 changes to the bankruptcy law). Over the past twelve months the bankruptcy filing rate per 1,000 persons has been 2.95, which is the first time it has been below 3.0 in almost 25 years. But, the filing rate is not that low everywhere. Before discussing how the filing rates are different across the country, the usual question I get is why the bankruptcy filing rate has declined so much. The answer to that question is not this post. Rather, see many…

    "What is the optimal consumer bankruptcy law?" Now that's an abstract first line that grabs my attention! I've thought about this question for most of my academic career, and I've struggled to find solid bases for an answer. Now, Indiana Univeristy economist Gray Gordon offers an intriguing if difficult to understand possibility. In his paper, Optimal Bankruptcy Code: A Fresh Start for Some, Gordon actually quantifies the sweet spot: (1) an optimal system offers a discharge of debt (a constant refrain in policy papers, e.g., here and here), (2) it does so for…

    Monday's action in the indexes is more typical of how a bull market rally behaves; early selling is met with a rush of buyers. After a quick open to the downside buyers jerked the indexes up immediately and a steady stream of buying came in all day. The S&P 500 gained 0.91% and the NASDAQ 1.35%. A dearth of news was probably a good thing today. After the bell all eyes were on Apple which... Read the full article at StockTradingToGo.com

    Indexes gapped up Friday and held steady most of the day as yesterday's jawboning by the Federal Reserve continued forward a day as investors hoped for either continued stimulus or a new round of it. They have been trained on this since 2008 so it is no surprise that any drop in the stock market - even 6-8% - brings calls of rescue from central bankers. The S&P 500 gained 1.29% and the...

    Indexes dipped at the open once again but stabilized as the day went by on jawboning from the Fed. That said, it was more of less selling than a lot of buying pressure. The S&P 500 gained 0.01% and the NASDAQ 0.05%. A Federal Reserve official said the central bank should consider delaying the end of stimulus plans, which as usual made traders happy.

    We saw a bounce today in the indexes but considering how oversold the market is, it was not a very impressive one. The S&P 500 gained 0.16% and the NASDAQ doubled that at 0.32%. Not much in the way of economic news as the market transitions to focus more on earnings; that said September retail sales will be reported tomorrow and that is widely followed.

    I occasionally contribute to the KOA (Kampgrounds of America) blog. Last year, I was speaking at a Maryland cancer event and got a tip that a nearby campground operated a haunted house with a regional draw. I agreed to check it out, surprised by how much haunted houses have changed since I went through one (ahem) 30+ years ago.

  • Six Ways to Respond when Someone Says, “I Have Cancer”

    Tamela M. Rich
    14 Oct 2014 | 3:37 pm
    Everyone knows someone with cancer or another life-threatening illness, but few of us know how to talk about it.  Researching my book, Live Full Throttle: Life Lessons From Friends Who Faced Cancer, I interviewed more than 100 people who have faced one of life’s ultimate sinkholes. They told me stories about everything—from how the disease altered the trajectory of their lives to how a cancer diagnosis changes the simple act of human conversation. Here is what I learned: while we all know someone with cancer or another life-threatening illness, few of us know how to talk about it.

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:24 pm
    Japan’s record purchases of liquefied natural gas (LNG) show no sign of slowing as the country continues to try and fill the energy shortfall created when it took its nuclear plants offline three years ago.With its lack of substantial domestic sources of fossil fuel, Japan is cripplingly dependent on imported oil, coal, and natural gas. Before the 2011 meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant, Japan was the third largest nuclear generator in the world, behind the United States and France, with 54 reactors.     Those reactors…Read more...
  • How And When Will Saudi Arabia Respond To Low Oil Prices?

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:07 pm
    Oil prices (along with prices of many other commodities) have fallen dramatically since last summer. Some observers are waiting to see if Saudi Arabia responds with significant cutbacks in production. I say, don’t hold your breath. Source: FRED.When oil demand fell in the 1981-82 recession, the Saudis cut production by 6 million barrels a day in an effort to soften the decline in oil prices. They also cut production in response to lower demand in the 2001 recession and the most recent recession. On the other hand, the kingdom boosted…Read more...
  • Drowning In Oil Again

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:54 pm
    For 4 years now the oil price (Brent) has been range bound between $90 and $130 per barrel (Figure 2). This is where it settled after the convulsions of the $148 per barrel peak in 2008 followed by the financial crash. Recently it has dipped to around the $80 mark and although we have seen a slight recovery many analysts believe it could break lower. With the world in turmoil, including OPEC producers Iraq and Libya ± Iran, and Russia cast out by the West, one might expect the oil price to be quite perky. But the opposite is true.

    Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the US will feel the effects of oil prices in radically different ways.It would be logical to think that the emergence of ISIL would have increased oil prices, but Brent crude oil prices have plummeted since July. Having now traded as low as $80 per barrel, oil is at its lowest price since 2012. The steep decline can be attributed to three trends: surging supply led by US fracking production, stagnating European demand, and a strengthening dollar.Declining prices could have a negative impact on oil-producing economies…Read more...

    In my last post, I talked about how some investors use fixed income exchange traded funds (ETFs) as an investment bridge – a place to put money when moving between managers or making other portfolio changes. Two of the main reasons we see ETFs used in this way are index tracking and liquidity. But there’s another big factor, one that’s especially relevant this time of year: taxes. I talked to one of our experts, BlackRock Managing Director Rob Nestor*, about why taxes are a major consideration when making a move.

But making the money was a symptom of several factors, some of which might surprise you. Of course, it goes without saying that I was powerless over the move in Sugar itself, so the best thing I could have done is what I did do: add some risk to my account and enter a protective stop to knock me out if I was wrong. I should also add that I had no clue the trade would develop even remotely the way it did when it started out. Technology-wise, I used EOD data from my broker…

  • Words of Wisdom for New Binary Option Traders

    Bill Achola
    25 Apr 2014 | 1:22 am
    This is a guest contribution from Chad Simmons www.binaryoptionsexplained.comOften time’s new traders tend to focus too much on strategies. That is, finding a strategy that ''always'' makes money. They’ll get overly caught up with indicators and trying to find that “holy grail”…thinking that if you combine enough indicators together you’ll come up with something special. They’ll think if they just had that one strategy or special indicator that trading would be easy. In reality, trading is very difficult. In fact, even the best strategies and setups don’t work…

    By Chris Ebert As the Bull market sent stock prices higher and higher over the past several years, readers here were provided with a unique perspective – a perspective that ignores the news of the day, ignores corporate fundamentals, and even ignores most common forms of technical analysis. This perspective has managed to guide traders through the twists and turns of the Bull market, helping them to make rational trading decisions, avoiding unnecessary fear yet anticipating fear when fear is healthy, thus in better positions to reap profits in the stock market.

    By Chris Ebert This is either the beginning of the end for the recent 3-year uninterrupted run for the Bull Market and stock prices are headed much much lower;  or it’s the end of a healthy Bull-market correction and stock prices are in a position to surpass their recent all-time highs within a few short weeks. The two scenarios are polar opposites. Now may be a good time for a trader to consider using option performance as an indicator of which path the stock market is on at the moment. Everyone can use options, even folks that don’t trade options, if for nothing other than a…

    By Jeff Pierce As the market volatility increases and that is likely to continue for awhile let’s turn our attention to Bonds for clues. It’s entering an obvious area of resistance right now so it will be important to see how it trades between the $120-125 level.  I personally don’t think this has enough momentum to break out which could give the general markets a lift if this chart tops, but it’s to early to know that right now. It could just as easily continue moving higher but watch the RSI for clues as right now there is negative divergence as it won’t make…

    Posted 10:00 AM ET - Last week we saw heavy selling and the SPY fell below the 200-day moving average. We haven't seen this type of technical damage in more than a year and the bottoming process is going to take longer than normal. Fortunately, buyers emerged Wednesday and the market closed above the open. The price action was weak Thursday morning, but buyers supported the market before it got down to Wednesday's low. On Friday, we saw follow-through buying. These are positive signs, but we are not out of the woods yet. Earnings season will kick into high gear this …

However, the gains did not hold into the close and we saw another round of late day selling. Today, the market found an early bid. This could be phase 1 of the bottoming process, but it is too early to tell. As long as we stay in positive territory, I will day trade from the long side. Netflix missed its number and new subscriptions were disappointing. That weighed …

I expected to see a gradual grind higher after decent earnings from banks and J&J. As the day wore on, the bid weakened. Once we fell below SPY $189 I stopped day trading. That was not the price action we wanted to see. Overnight, a second Ebola case was reported in Texas. This is all the market needed to hear. The S&P 500 was down 12 …

    Just What Does the Bible Say About Money? People have differing opinions about what the Bible says about money. Some say it says money is evil and others claim it says God wants His followers to be wealthy. Neither is quite true. Often, people have these opinions based in misquoted or misinterpreted verses. This results in people thinking of the Bible and money being like oil and water and do not mix. The Bible has a lot to say about money, both good and bad. In 1 Timothy 6:10, it says “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered…

Today we will examine a little deeper the aspect of using a cash value focused life insurance policy to fund portions of your business. Business owner A is the typical business owner who, based on the financial instruments at his disposal, has limited options. This forces him to seek financing through a traditional bank. After being determined as “qualified” he is then told how much can be borrowed, at what cost, on what the terms, and most importantly the consequences of…

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:23 pm
    Does the idea of having a budget make you want to run away screaming? Yet, do you have trouble making your money last until the end of each month? Turning your finances around — and staying in the black each month — doesn't have to be an impossible task. You probably just haven't been given the tools to make a budget that works. “Think of it as a blueprint,” suggests Lori Atwood, RFC, founder and principal of Lori Atwood-Fearless Finance, a financial advisory firm. A budget will help you see where your money goes, take control of spending and meet financial…
  • Owner on the hook for company card debt

    17 Oct 2014 | 11:38 am
    Hi Erica, I had a tobacco shop that went under earlier this year, and I had a business credit card that I used for it. I owe $22,000 on it, and I'm curious, if there is no business, am I still responsible for the credit card bill? Does it affect my personal credit if I don't pay? –Pauli Dear Pauli, I'm afraid the answer to both questions is almost certainly affirmative. In most cases, “business” credit cards are really just lines of credit provided to individuals, developed to meet the requirements of their operation rather than personal needs. For example,…
  • How to save when it's never worked before

    16 Oct 2014 | 12:04 pm
    Do you find yourself at $0 at the end of every month? Does the thought of an unexpected cost worry you? You aren't alone. A June 2014 Bankrate survey shows that 26 percent of Americans have no emergency savings, while another 24 percent have less than three months' worth of expenses saved. That means half of Americans aren't ready for a financial difficulty. If you want a better handle on your finances and increased peace of mind, you need a rainy day fund. This is no easy feat when you are living paycheck to paycheck, but it is possible. The first step is to take stock of…
  • ChexSystems tracks bank account misdeeds

    15 Oct 2014 | 10:31 am
    You probably know the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion), which lenders depend on to evaluate your creditworthiness, but you also should be aware of ChexSystems, a consumer reporting agency that could bar you from opening a bank account. When a bank closes an account for a reason such as an unpaid negative balance, fraud or habitual check bouncing, the bank might report the matter to ChexSystems. The report stays on file for five years, according to the agency's website for consumers, ConsumerDebit.com. About 80 percent of banks use that consumer reporting…
  • Widow could be responsible for husband's card debt

    14 Oct 2014 | 1:41 pm
    Hi Erica, My husband recently died after a long fight with cancer, and he left about $9,000 in credit card debt. I'm not on the cards. Am I responsible for paying them off? I have a lot of card debt of my own. –Melba Dear Melba, I am terribly sorry for what you've been going through and still have to deal with. It's devastating to see a loved one suffer from such a crushing illness. And, as you now know, the financial fallout can be awful. You're left with your own bills to pay on what might be a smaller or even no income. Whether you are responsible for your…

    16 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    According to a recent survey by Partnership, almost two-thirds of people over the age of 40 will still be paying off their mortgages in retirement. The escalation of house prices coupled with increased remortgaging activity has meant that many middle aged home owner will have to find enough money in retirement to continue paying their mortgage.    Of people currently in their 40s around one in four expect to still be paying off their mortgages when they retire, 42% said they thought they wouldn’t have got onto the property ladder and would still be paying rent. The figures for people aged…
  • Further Pension Freedom Plans to be Announced

    wendy
    14 Oct 2014 | 1:46 am
    The Treasury is to announce further freedom plans to the way you can access your pension pots. Currently, once a person reaches the age of 55 they can take a one-off lump sum to the value of 25% of their private or workplace defined contribution pension tax-free, which most people do once they first retire. Under the new rules, savers will be able to withdraw money from their pension pots whenever they want – without having to purchase an annuity product. However, until now the 25% tax-free lump sum could only be used once. In future, any withdrawal taken from the pension pot will see the…
  • Interest Rates Remain at 0.5% But Could an Increase be on the Cards Before 2015?

    wendy
    9 Oct 2014 | 4:47 am
    The Bank of England’s Monetary Committee decided once again to keep the interest rate the same and not to raise the level of quantitative easing, keeping it at £375 billion. Despite constant forecasts of an interest rate rise from finance experts, the Bank of England have now kept the base rate of interest at 0.5% for over 5 years and it is unlikely to change this year.     However, seeds of change have begun to sprout, as two of the members of the Monetary Policy Committee have voted to increase the rate to 0.75% in the past two monthly meetings. The economy grew by 0.9% from April to…
  • Government Expects Average Retirement Age to Increase by Six Months a Year

    wendy
    7 Oct 2014 | 6:55 am
    Owing to the ever increasing cost that the country’s pensioners put on the Treasury, the Government is looking to speed up extending the average age at which a person retires quicker. According to plans announced by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), the average age a person chooses to retire could rise by around six months in a year, although it did not expect each following year to see such a high rise. Whilst the average age of retirement is on the rise, figures suggest that it isn’t going to happen that quickly. From April to June this year, the average age for a man to retire…
  • More money than ever invested in Isas, yet lowest interest returns

    1 Oct 2014 | 6:35 am
    As more savers than ever invest in Isas, figures reveal they are getting less back than ever before. Constant cuts to Isa rates by banks and building societies have meant, that despite the amount of money you can invest in an Isa raising considerably, the amount of interest you receive on your investment is lower than ever. The Bank of England have found that the amount of interest paid on Isa accounts has fallen by £600 million over the past six months, even though the amount of money invested has increased sharply.   Cash and share Isas have been popular with savers as they offer a…

  • Playing the Bounce Like a Boss

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:12 pm
    There's no doubt about it we are in the midst of a market bounce. However, there are plenty of those out there that will insist on trying to time the top of every market top and in this case every dead cat bounce instead of simply waiting for the market to provide us with the direction it wants us to trade.  With the current bounce that started in the middle of last week, I have added four positions to the portfolio which includes the 8.7% made on UPRO that I closed out for members of the SharePlanner Splash Zone. But no worries, as I have more from where that came from with 2% in gains…
  • In Between Days

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:33 am
    SPX moved away from the daily lower band on Friday and the rally I was looking at is on. The obvious targets on the daily chart are the 200 DMA at 1906 and the daily middle band at 1940. SPX daily chart: I mentioned the possibility that this rally might fail at the 1898 SPX area on Friday morning, and we have seen a reversal there. I'm a bit concerned about that, as that was a reversal at the 50 hour MA, and a possible IHS neckline. The double bottom target is still the 1920 area, but on a decent break above 1900 there may be an argument for an IHS target in the 1956 area. SPX 60min chart:…
  • Bullish Trade Setups in a Weakened Market

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:12 am
    Some solid momentum out there in the market today.  Though I wouldn't say it is a day where the bears are being significantly squeezed, they still have to ask themselves how high this bounce could go and will it wipe out the profits that they have made over the past few weeks.  The bounces are where the bears get into trouble because they hate liquidating their positions and instead they convince themselves that they can hold through any bounce the market may throw their way when in reality they should be covering into weakness, not in the absence of it.  With that said, I am…

Crude oil slipped below $80 a barrel during trading yesterday, and experts are clamoring for it to head even lower. The reality is that oil prices could fall as far as the high $60s.

    David Bettencourt
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:11 pm
    While I believe that the Federal Reserve (Fed) is likely to begin raising rates sooner than the market expects, rates are still likely to be low for long. What do I mean by that? I expect that the pace of rate normalization will be slower than in past hiking cycles and more importantly, that the ultimate destination of rates will be lower than in previous periods of rate hikes. While there are many reasons behind my longer-term rate outlook, including the pace of economic growth and the Fed’s targeted objectives, one reason in particular is worth highlighting: Technological change. As my…

I have made the argument that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s nostalgia for and obsession with restoring the Soviet Union, including his history of seizing private assets to amass a personal fortune of an estimated $70 billion … makes investing in Russia very dangerous. Unlike most global stocks, which started showing signs of bottoming Friday after a rough couple of weeks, a few things on the horizon have the ability to trigger a devastating financial meltdown in Russia.

    This week is Canadian National Small Business Week, and it got me thinking about my own journey from small business leadership to one Forbes’ most innovative growth companies - and now SAP. Like many career paths it has been a long and winding road, but there are some elements at the core of running a small business that hold true no matter how big your company becomes.   In 1998, after getting restless in my career in technology consulting, I decided to join the startup world. Two of my friends had just incorporated an e-procurement business and I was eager to jump in. We grew that…

  • Why Your Expense Management Strategy Should Be Capabilities-Driven

    Cost-cutting initiatives are a cyclical phenomenon for most companies. Why? Because after the "appropriate" measures are taken, resource allocation policies remain the same. There's a smarter expense management strategy. Today, more companies are taking control of expense management by adopting a capabilities-driven approach.

    The Dow Jones and S&P 500 are near their all time highs. The market has been on quite a bullish run and there are not a lot of screaming buy opportunities out there. Technology and retail seem a bit long in the tooth to me. There are however some sectors that still have values and I have started taking long term positions in them. Energy, financials, metals, and basic materials are largely undervalued. I have found some intriguing names in these sectors and will be revealing more of them over the next few weeks.

    I am as big a stock market bull as anyone. The market has had a great run over the past few years and investors who stayed the course have made a great deal of money. I believe however a pullback is coming. It is simply too hard to find great values in the market now. Many great companies are trading at values (P/E, P/S, BV) that are simply too high based on their financials. (I love Amazon but a 1400 P/E ratio is outrageous for almost any company.

    24 May 2013 | 12:49 pm
    I have written many articles citing the benefits of long term investing over short term investing. Beating the market over the short term is simply too difficult for most investors to do. It is close to impossible to time the market. Most long time traders only have minimal success at buying low and selling high over the course of a few days. Long term investing gives the average investor the opportunity to make solid profits and reduces the emotional stress of watching the market day to day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has surged past the 15,000 level and is even higher than it was…

    As the costs of higher education have skyrocketed over the last few decades, more and more students have gone deeper into debt to finance their educations.  In Canada, the amount of government assistance for college educations has declined, forcing students to borrow even more. Typically, students borrow from multiple sources and consequently end up making monthly loan payments to several different lenders.  If you are having a hard time meeting your monthly bills you can reduce your total outlay by consolidating all your student loan consolidation into a single loan with a…

    Over the past few months, I warned my readers the stock market had become a risky place to be. While I also suggested euphoria could bring the market higher than most thought possible—to the point of irrationality—the bubble has now burst. Key stock indices are falling and fear among investors is rising quickly. Please look at the chart below of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) Volatility Index (VIX). This index is often referred to as the “fear index” for key stock indices. If this index rises, it means investors fear a market sell-off. If it declines, investors are…
  • Plunging Oil Prices Next Big Investment Opportunity?

    Mitchell Clark, B.Comm.

    While corporate earnings continue to come in solid, stocks continue to be sold. It’s not all the time that stocks follow oil prices, but they certainly have this time around and the selling momentum has gained on deflationary pressures from producer prices to declining expectations for global economic growth. And the selling is happening to companies that beat consensus with their earnings, like J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. (JBHT), which beat Wall Street estimates for sales and earnings in what was a very solid quarter for the trucking company. For J.B. Hunt, sentiment just wasn’t…

    Now that the Dow Jones Industrial Average has fallen 1,035 points (six percent) from its mid-September peak, the question investors are asking is “how far will she go?” For small-cap investors, the drama is greater, as the Russell 2000 Index has fallen 12.5% from its July peak. Since 2009, every market pullback presented investors with an opportunity to get back into stocks at discounted prices. Even some editors here at Lombardi Publishing Corporation see the recent pullback in stocks as an opportunity. But what happens if it is different this time? How about if stocks just keep falling?

Yes, we got a nice relief rally.. towards the top of 6100 itself, that makes it more complex and if the bears are coming in, its going to be a flat correction..

Business loans, M&A activity, stock buy loans, etc. Mortgage demand is down right now, but Uncle Sam is taking steps to remedy that situation now.

    Craig Lack wrote the book on how to survive and thrive under Obamacare. As we get closer to the election, for now small business has been spared the full effects of the law. The net result will be paying more for less coverage. This means that it is up to every individual to take responsibility for their own health. That means making diet and lifestyle changes to minimize the chances of illness. If everyone in the country made these changes, there would be no health care crisis. Medical costs would drop by 80 percent!

USDA should show rather slow harvest progress tonight, but progress should really improve with the better weather. Very little Cotton is available to the cash market inside the US due to price. Prices are below the marketing loan rate, and producers are likely to take out USDA loans instead of move Cotton into the cash market.

  • How to Use Your Pension to Reduce Your Tax Bill

    How to Use Your Pension to Reduce Your Tax Bill Incredibly there are now more than 4 million people in the UK who qualify to pay the higher rate of tax (at a not-to-be-scoffed-at 40%). But what many of those higher rate taxpayers do not realise is that they could possibly avoid being caught by the higher rate altogether if they put more of their earnings into their pensions contributions pot. With higher rate taxpayers now matching the peak levels of pre-recession and the threshold getting ever lower, more and more people are now being sucked into the higher rate earnings category.

But this is a complicated area, so before you start getting life insurance quotes what do you need to know about how it all works? Life Cover Basics Life insurance pays out a lump sum or a regular income to your partner or family after you die.

  • How Often Do ETFs Pay Dividends?

    admin
    20 Oct 2014 | 9:11 am
    Retail investors are used to mutual funds paying out dividends, but there is often confusion about how an ETF pays dividends. Does it distribute dividends as soon as they are paid out by individual stocks, or is there another approach? Understanding ETFs To understand how dividends work with ETF’s, it’s first important to know what an ETF is. In essence, an ETF is just like a mutual fund, except that it is traded on a stock exchange. ETFs have a number of advantages over mutual funds – fees tend to be lower, they have better tax treatment, and there are no minimum investments. Also,…
  • Is A 401k The Best Way To Save For Retirement?

    admin
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:25 am
    Many Americans treat their 401(k) as the primary way of saving for retirement. A 401(k) is attractive on the surface, since contributions are made before you pay tax – the amount you contribute is deducted from your gross income, not your net income after tax. In fact, you don’t have to pay any tax on your 401(k) until you retire and withdraw your money from your account. This tax deferral also allows your money to grow more quickly, since the returns you earn each year are also tax-deferred. Matching contributions The idea behind a 401(k) is that your employer also matches your…

  • Why Do Lenders Give Loans Without Security?

    admin
    15 Oct 2014 | 8:40 am
    We’re all familiar with mortgages and car loans, where we put up collateral – such as a house or car – to secure the loan. Lenders like these types of loans, because if you don’t pay them back, they can seize whatever you put up as collateral and sell it. In other words, the loan is secured because the bank is able to recover its money if things go wrong. So, why do banks and other institutions also give unsecured credit – where you don’t need to put up any collateral at all? Banks make money off of loans Loans are one of the main reasons why banks exist. They borrow money at a…

    As the average age of advisors creeps older every year, the industry has continued to predict an impending wave of advisors retiring and looking to sell their practices, leading to a massive buyer’s market for advisory firms. Yet thus far, data from FP Transitions suggests the number of buyers still outnumbers the sellers by a whopping 50:1, and the succession planning “crisis” has been little more than a mirage. Nonetheless, a recent survey conducted by Aite Group and published by NFP Advisor Services suggests that advisory firm acquisitions may be happening far more than anyone…

  • Why You Should Only Buy Insurance Protection And Annuity Guarantees Expected To Lose You Money (On Average)

    Michael Kitces
    15 Oct 2014 | 4:01 am
    While no one likes to pay more in insurance premiums than they have to, an important fundamental principle of insurance is that in the end, there must be enough premiums (plus growth) to cover potential future claims (plus overhead and profits for the insurance company). Insurance coverage that is “too” cheap is actually risky, and coverage that is “expensive” is actually the most secure! In fact, one of the most significant caveats to considering any form of insurance (or annuity) guarantee at all is if the insurance is not going to lose you money on average, it’s actually…

    10 Oct 2014 | 3:16 am
    Do you stay glued to the daily ups and downs of stock prices? Do you wonder what to conclude from the prices, fluctuating every now and then? Do you hope to make a windfall on the hot new stock you bought? And yet, things don’t go as you want. Trust me; this can be simply termed as human misjudgement of the underlying value. What is a stock? It’s a small piece of business. What does that mean? Simply, that you own the earnings and the cash flows that the business generates from time to time. To give you an evident analogy, the dividend on the stock is similar to rent you receive on your…

    What is Nifty@MRP? As investors, we constantly track the Nifty movements. To make investing more profitable and not a game of mere chance, we need a solution, a solution which could help us identify whether the market is grossly depressed or irrationally exuberant. This is exactly what Nifty @ MRP is for! Considering that the Nifty stocks are the top traded stocks of the country, we expect them to be traded at their MRPs (fair value). But this may not always be true. Thus, Nifty @ MRP gives an indication of whether the Nifty is fairly valued or whether irrationality is driving the markets.

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.

    I spent five minutes on CNBC Power Lunch on Monday primarily discussing small cap stocks.  As usual the CNBC crew wants to be prepared for all possible topics and asked for some preliminary observations on a number of important issues, which I put forth below.

  • 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…

Of course, not all the topics get covered, and even those that do are more focused.  It does force some thinking about the questions and provides a good excuse to do a quick update around the topics of interest. Below are the responses to the specific questions with a few additional thoughts. Q:  We’ve been focused on geopolitics…how much of an impact will…

  • 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.

    After it had ended the previous session on a lower position, stocks may possibly move back to the upside in early trading last week. The major index futures are presently pointing to a discreetly higher open for the markets, with the Dow futures up by 15 points. Bargain hunting may contribute to some of the early strength on Wall Street after last week’s sell-off which pulled the primary averages down to their lowest levels in the past 60 days. Early trading activity appears to be subdued, however, with the traders looking ahead to the release of the minutes of the recent Federal…

The reality is that despite the major sums that have been invested in another optional energy with the supply of oil from shale proving to be much greater than expected, oil prices were confirmed to be nine times higher than just over a decade ago.

    Income drawdown is regarded as the primary option in purchasing an annuity for retirement. It commences upon drawing variable income directly from the pension fund, which remains invested at the option of policy holder. Basically, the member stays in control of the pension fund and this for many is what appeals to as income drawdown, but at the same time gives substantial risks.

His comments were made at the inaugural ASEAN Insurance Summit in Singapore. Natural disasters have devastated some parts of Asia in the past three years. 2011’s Tohoku tsunami and earthquake in Japan is estimated to have caused US$210 billion worth of damage, which was 3.6% of the country’s total GDP.
