Texas Got Hit HardGood morning.
Markets closed one of their toughest weeks in months.  For many traders, the pain is palpable.  But looking at the last month or six months, it’s clear that stocks have been in a strong uptrend.  Since nothing ever moves in a straight line, we’re still nowhere near a potential downtrend.
Remember, market corrections of 5-10 percent are fairly common, especially after the great run we’ve had in the market since November.  And the move in the bond market, with 10-year yields rising from 1 percent to 1.5 percent, actually marks one of the biggest bear markets in bonds ever, almost as bad at the “taper tantrum” in 2013.  And it’s a move that, even if it continues, likewise won’t move in a straight line.

Have you made any changes to your trading strategy in this market?

Hit reply and let us know how you’re handling the increased volatility.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

So Is There a Retirement Crisis or Not?  Surveys show many Americans feel unprepared for retirement.  Surging inflation, loose monetary policy and Social Security woes abound… So how concerned should you be, and if you foresee your own crisis, what should you do?

Heart and SoulGood Morning … If prospects want what we have to offer, what do we do to talk them out of it?

Prospects want our products, services & opportunity.  Who would not want a better life with more money?
So let’s solve this mystery.

1.  Prospects are pre-sold.

2.  We talk to prospects.

3.  Prospects say, “No.”

Now the problem is easy to see.  We talked to the prospects!

So what words do we say that turn prospects off, and activate their sales and skepticism alarms?  Do any of these opening phrases sound familiar?

“I just got involved with …”
“Would you be interested in …”
“I have a ground-floor opportunity …”
“Let me tell you about this breakthrough product …”

26-instant-amazoncoverOuch.  We are only a few words into our conversation, and we are already dead.  Yes, it is all over and we haven’t even reached the second sentence.

The solution?  Well, we could use better ice breakers, learn how to build better rapport, and talk directly to prospects’ color personalities.  But here is an interesting solution that does much more. It is called “soundbites.

4 Color Personality TypesThe Four Color Personalities and how they translate into my life.

Once I had an understanding of “the color personalities” my life made more sense.

A simple over-exaggeration of the personality types might be:

Yellows:  Ask them to help now.
Blues:  Ready for some action and fun?
Reds:  Give them a challenge.
Greens:  Stand back and let them digest information.

Each new skill we learn makes the other skills work better.  That is why most of the people at the top have higher skill levels.  I want to join this empowerment.

If you don’t know the color personalities, it is the first skill that you should learn since it gives them the confidence to talk to others.  Why?  Because they feel they know more about the ‘prospect’ and what drives people.

How are your color personality skills?  If you are like most of us, you didn’t learn these skills in school.  If you haven’t mastered the color personality skills yet, and the secret language that goes with the skill, here is a great, easy-to-learn solution.

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
