Crickets

 

For months I’ve talked about the incessant push for a hot war. More times than not, my in box would fill up with people suggesting I was nuts, I was paranoid, there’s never going to be war, etc. etc.

 

Over the past week…nothing. Not a peep. Crickets chirping in the night. I guess maybe watching those missiles taking off from Destroyers in the Mediterranean,  at least got them thinking that maybe, just maybe “some involvement” in “some war” could actually be real.  Ya think?

The Gamble
 
Quite some time ago, I told my readers that I was moving what’s left of my wife’s 401K plan out of stock funds and into “cash”. ( money market).  We felt we had taken the best slice out of the 2009 - 2015 run up and after all....the market was being pushed up by all the wrong reasons.

That strategy looked pretty smart for a long time. If you look back at the overall market, it simply traded sideways for those two years. Then something interesting happened. The day after the election, stocks started running and they haven’t taken a break since. Now the DOW, S&P and the NASDAQ are all at new highs. The TV pundits are saying that we could hit DOW 25K.

Hey Everyone, the free investing newsletter is posted. Today we're discussing the metals, such as silver and gold and how one of our "Vegas plays" had turned an investment of 19K into a whopping 240,000 dollars in 8 months. Yes you read that right, that's not a misprint. 

I want to talk about strategy and how sometimes the best intentions go awry. Take a few minutes to read it and learn one of my investing rules... a rule that I actually broke. And why.

Retirement Talks

For the past few issues I’ve been talking about the things one could do to secure themselves a retirement, so they don’t have to be a greeter at Wal-mart when they’re 75 years old. But it isn’t just “one thing” so to speak, it’s a multi-pronged fork that you need to secure your future. So far we’ve covered such things as buying a “working class” house and renting it out. Not for income, and not to flip, but just so that you have an asset that someone else pays for. Then at the end of the mortgage you have something free and clear you can sell or live in.

We also talked about online investing. The point being that “just having a job” is not enough. The job pays your rent, your food, your insurances, your cars, etc.  But you need something on top of that to use as “savings”. Whether it’s doing side jobs or what have you, we presented the case that if you get a good “market” education, there’s very few things you can do that can make you the kind of money that online investing does, with virtually no manual labor.
