July 25, 2015: Who Should Your Money Work For?

Well, the market continues to weaken and is unable to break out and hold new highs. This continues to suggest that the best money will be made on the indexes on the downside and our Put trade idea continues to work. Our previous projections that S&P earnings and the Chinese markets would weaken appear at this point to be accurate. Greece will remain an issue and Spain and Portugal aren’t far behind. I still think GDP for Q2 will also be below expectations. Net/net, I don’t see a lot of reason to be long the market right now.

Given all that, today we talked about various investment vehicles like 401(k)’s, IRA’s, 403(b)’s, etc. and whether or not they were really appropriate investment vehicles for most people. Unfortunately, the answer is “no”. Tune in to find out why! Also, I am going to be doing a couple of special classes this week on this topic at our Scottsdale campus. If you are currently in any of these vehicles and want to understand more about better alternatives, we would love to have you come out.

July 18, 2015: A Big Picture (There may be more than one…)

This week, we were all over the map. We went from Bastille Day (France) to Bastille Day (Rush), across the Rubicon, and back. Along the way we talked about the resolution in Greece (unlikely to hold) the market drop in China (likely to resume at some point) and the overall disintegration of faith in American institutions. We reviewed market conditions and updated some predictions.

A note on one prediction from last year. While Hillary is still better than 50% to be the Democratic nominee by any conventional measure, I still think we live in a world where Elizabeth Warren is more likely to be elected President in 2016 than most people think. As time goes by it will become more apparent that HRC is a fundamentally flawed candidate, and if her party wants to win the Presidency (and they do), they will throw her over the side in a heartbeat. EW will be there waiting when it happens and unless the election is totally focused on foreign policy and/or terrorism, she can’t be beaten. The alternative is for Democrats to assume that the Republican candidate will be just as flawed (a reasonable assumption) and that they will just take their chances, but I’m not sure they are up for the risk. EW’s election would have tremendous implications for the markets and the country, so we’ll keep an eye open. Stay tuned…

July 11, 2015: I’m A Little Short Again

This show was recorded on July 7th, which was a very volatile day, to both the up and down sides. In the show we talked about why the volatility was back, and likely to continue. We also talked about how you can use this volatility to your benefit. As usual, we spent some time talking Greece and China, but we also talked about what asset classes are likely to do well going forward (Dollar, US Treasuries) and which aren’t (Euro, stocks, municipal bonds, etc.)

July 4, 2015: Financial Independence Day

Today we discussed the Greek default in more detail. We also spent time looking at US markets, which continue to weaken.

On a more philosophical note, we explored current economic conditions in the US and why they both weren’t getting, and couldn’t be getting, any better. It is not the most optimistic view, but unfortunately it is one which continues to appear to be accurate.

Given the state of the country and the world, we talked about how you can learn to use the market to achieve your financial goals. As a note, I will be teaching one more class this summer. The topic will be, “Creating Your Own Financial Independence”. In this class I will be covering a wide swath of topics, from how the market really works, to overviews of every major asset class that you can trade and invest in. We will discuss both generating short-term income, as well as creating and protecting long-term wealth. If you would like to come out, call us at 480.634.2301. Mention this blog and get two free tickets to the class. I hope to see you there.
