Bumpy Road Ahead!

June 28th, 2013 Posted in Business, Finance Tips

Well it looks like it could be a bumpy road ahead. Remember your investments are for the future, if you need the money in less then 5 years it probably should not be in the stock market but something much safer, such as a savings account or insured CD. Jack Bogel presented an excellent speech on 6/26/2002 titled “The Telltale Chart” it can be read at the website Bogel research center under speeches. It helps explain why what is happening now will not matter that much in the future.

Today’s Market

June 17th, 2013 Posted in Business, Finance Tips

In today’s market being attentive to what is happening, is a definite necessity.
Check your reason for buying or selling, do what is right for you do not follow the herd. Think when the market moves is it based on facts or emotions? No one knows what will happen in the future until it happens. A little thought can do a lot of good.


Quote from Mark Twain

June 5th, 2013 Posted in Business, Finance Tips

“When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained” so as I mentioned last week keep your emotions in check, have a plan and write it down, and it you change it write down why you made the change.
