The Real Reason Rates Are Dropping In The US

The Federal Funds Rate Are Dropping…

We are told the Federal Reserve has a dual mandate… price stability and maximum sustainable employment. Some joke their third mandate is a higher stock market.

We are also told that The Fed looks to US centric data to make their interest rate adjustments… well I think things have changed as the world has become more entangled with each other. 

I recorded a video this week where I talk about what is really driving US interest rates and the Federal Funds rate. 

And then in addition to interest rates, I also show you six ideas to contemplate this week.

The one idea that stands out the most to me is a powerful way to view the returns of the stock market from the past 10 years. 

10 Years of Stock Market Returns…

There’s one image in this week’s video that is so powerful that you should print it out and pin it to your wall. 

It’s an image that can help the worried investor when the market has negative -3% or even negative -5% days.

Watch this week’s video about the Federal Funds Rate and other timely matters for your money below:

And if you missed last week, here is the video where I make five predictions for the final innings of one of the greatest bull markets in history.

PS – I’ve got four things for you this week…

(1) The Power of Laughter
When was the last time you laughed. I mean really laughed…? The type of laughter where your body kind of bends forward and your belly shakes a little bit. Laughter really is one of the best medicines

(2) Start Your Day With Laughter
Almost every day, I make it a point to start my day with a couple of minutes of laughter. Here is one of my favorite guys that really seems to get what it’s like to be human and married.

(3) Chart of the week…
The market did nothing this week.

(4) And one more…
If you have the right symbol then you solved [only] 10% of your problems. The other 90% is strategic and the best symbols in the world can’t save you until your brain has dumped the head trash and rewired for growth. All of this can often be solved with this conversation.
