The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!

8.24.2016 -Hurricanes on the Way? Bookmark

The 2016 Hurricane Season is in gear and do you know that September 10 is the single biggest date for Hurricanes in the US? That's the biggest day of activity of the whole year. Well Sept. 10 is approaching and as I type this, the storm labeled 99L is looking like it's going to become a Tropical Storm and land somewhere in Florida. So, Today's Financial Intelligence report, which is our free investing newsletter, is all about Preparations. Take it from someone that lived through Super Storm Sandy, I know a little about preparing. So, today's letter is about water. Where to find it, how to filter it, and where to store it. It's a great read for anyone preparing for any form of disaster.

So, Friday was “jobs” day. The first Friday of every month brings us the “non farm payroll report”.  This piece of data is watched by every market participant, because the labor data is correlated to monetary policy such as interest rates.

 

The Fed’s have been sitting on their pedestal telling us how wonderful the recovery is and that the labor markets are so hot that they’re worried about overheating. For months now they’ve had a smug attitude about how many jobs there are, and that their monetary policy has indeed saved the world.

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.
