I found a beautiful and convenient RSS Reader that works great on desktop, iPad and Android – Feedly. It’s free.Share this:
I’m writing a long post on a niche topic – I hope you’re in that niche – and in the meantime, here’s a few links and bits that caught my eye:
- Extreme Saving: Setting a retirement goal of age 35 — the comments are pretty interesting, but then, I’ve been living under a rock for a couple of years, shunning both mass media and most online forums.
- 5 reasons investors can’t set it and forget it — this is about the dangers of stop-losses. Funny comments, again. Like this one: “Obviously Hodson didn’t believe in stop loss orders when running a growth fund in 2008 he was down over 70% at one point in 2008…shouldn’t be allowed to give advice to anyone about running money…..brutal.” Always, consider the source.
- Simple Savings — the slogan here is “Learn to save money on just about EVERYTHING!”. Frankly, I find the look of the website daunting although it has a huge following and probably a plethora of awesome savings tips. Despite keeping the page open for a couple of weeks, I haven’t gone beyond the front page. From time to time, I just like to glance at the shocking cost of skincare on the opening page. That fact alone is worth a visit.
- Back in March, Questrade IQ was updated to allow mini options trading. Here’s more info on that.
- “President Obama and his family will be going to Africa later this month. But the trip won’t be cheap; it’s expected to cost American taxpayers $60 to $100 million, according to the Washington Post.” Mmmmmkay…
According to the Wall Street Journal, there was $500MM of buying on weakness on (SPY: 165.735 +0.79%) today (May 27th). Crazy-nuts, somebody’s buying. And here I am, sitting and thinking the top is near.
The trick is to buy when everyone is fearful and to sell when everyone is greedy. Is the majority fearful of the top at the moment, and is it the time to buy? I’ll look at the technical detail this week, but at first glance it’s over-overbought. And so far from 200MA.Share this:
Why did they choose BRIC as the acronym for Brazil, China, India and Russia? Why not CRIB? Makes way more sense as these are emerging – infant – economies.
PS yes, it’s the happy hour here, cheers.Share this:
