The Stock Market is Ignoring The Economy

My son wants a cell phone. What 7th grader doesn’t? He might just be the last one in his grade to get one, but his mom and I are steadfast on waiting until he’s in the 8th grade.  To him, none of this makes sense. “Everyone” has one. It feels unfair to him. My ex-wife…

The Market Will Double

You are taught to care about the wrong things. More specifically, you are taught to care about the wrong things when it comes to growing and protecting your portfolio.  You are taught to care why the market goes higher. You are taught there are only a few acceptable reasons why the market goes higher… and…

Economic Cat Videos

If the market was about to crash—which is what most of you are being fed—then why are economically sensitive sectors strengthening and moving higher? That doesn’t make sense.  The investment world doesn’t see economically sensitive sectors strengthening into a crash, we’d have the opposite if that was true.  Why aren’t bonds breaking up and making…

How I Vote

Hi Guys, I’m an American and I live in America (though some might not consider the Seattle area America). The first American presidential debate took place this past Tuesday night. And guess what?

Do More Printed Dollars Matter?

One of the questions every investor is attempting to answer is: “does this matter?” Do more printed US dollars matter? Does the stock market being “overvalued” matter?

This Asset is Breaking Down the Market

Hi Guys, When someone walks into a doctor’s office, they are looking for answers. They don’t want to be there. This meeting wasn’t on the calendar…it wasn’t planned. Even if they like the doctor across the street from them, they’d rather not be sitting there talking to them.  That’s because, of course, if they are…

How To Hold On To A Bull Market

I did things a little different on the video this week. On Tuesday, I recorded the vlog live. My format was kind of like a “call-in” radio show. I did my usual topic at the beginning and then I opened up the “phone lines” to anyone that had a question about what I covered or…

Should You Hedge The S&P 500?

Hi Guys, This week was my final week for my current training cohort.  There was a question that came up on Wednesday that I wanted to share with you because it incorporated three of my “first principles” into one question.  What was particularly great about this question was how applicable it is to all people…

If the Dollar Fails…

Hi Guys, I’m impressed with how many people are getting hit with the story that the US dollar is going to lose its reserve status. Here’s the ninja move. Don’t be attached to the US dollar having or not having, or losing or not losing, or losing and then finding its reserve status.  Because, if…
