Fool You!Good morning.
While the stock market is still off its all-time highs, and could be for months, one asset just took a considerable pounding in financial markets – but is now about back to where it started. That asset?  The Russian ruble.
While there’s been tough talk of sanctions, the ruble’s initial 36 percent drop against the US dollar was then met with a counter-move.  The country is now looking to only do business in rubles for its energy and precious metals reserves.  Plus, the country internally halted currency trades and kept its stock market closed, so citizens couldn’t escape the ruble’s drop.  That may have stemmed the drop and started the currency back on its road to recovery.
Ultimately, the ruble is being backed by energy.  Neither the US or the ECB can print their way out of that fact.  While traders may not want to buy rubles at this point, it’s still worth considering assets in the energy space given their powerful role in global markets right now.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Biden Takes His Financial Senility Up A Notch, Sats This About 2023
Biden has a new 158-page Fiscal Year 2023 Budget for the United States Government.  The first 50 pages are mostly self-congratulations on US progress.  But the pages after are eye-opening if you think the money printing will stop… [Read Here]

DiversityGood morning.
The Biden Administration finally unveiled its $2 trillion infrastructure plan.  With generous provisions for public transit, light rail, and electric vehicles, nearly every company in the S&P 500 stands to benefit from the higher spending, whether directly or indirectly.
However… someone’s got to pay for it.  And the tax hikes proposed will fall on businesses under a plan for higher corporate tax rates, the closing of loopholes, and higher rates on overseas profits.  The overall plan sounds very much like a “buy now, pay later,” plan, as the spending will likely hit its peak in time for the 2022 midterm elections, while the taxes will kick in over a period of a few years. In the meantime, the market seems on board with the plan.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Yeah!Good morning.
While the market was able to recoup losses as the first quarter came to a close … it still posted the worst quarterly performance in history.  This kind of volatility has been a boon for some investors and devastating for others.  One thing hopefully becoming clear; you need to become more dynamic in your approach to the market.

FIVE SIMPLE WAYS TO TRICK YOUR MIND INTO ATTRACTING WEALTH

Yes, I said very simple.  The five steps which follow are designed for the complete beginner.  You can start today, right now, to attract more prosperity in your life.  Here’s the 3rd way to start immediately.

3. Find a penny, pick it up. In order to attract wealth into your life, your subconscious mind must be open to the idea of wealth flowing to you.  You must be open and receptive to money coming to you from any source whatsoever.  This includes the pennies laying on the street.  If you pass a penny on the sidewalk, and your usual reaction is simply to ignore it because stooping down to pick up a penny is not worth the effort, you are telling your subconscious mind that you are not willing to put out effort for money.  The amount of money makes no difference whatsoever.  The subconscious mind doesn’t distinguish between one penny and one million dollars.  All it knows is how you feel.

Of course this manifests in many other ways as well.  Whenever you do not accept a gift graciously, whenever you do not charge someone for work that you have done for them, or charge them way less than you should because you feel guilty, and whenever you sell a product for less than it is worth because you do not want to charge too much, you are generating the same emotions.  So begin to be open to money, in whatever form, and begin to accept it’s flow into your life, even if it’s only a penny on the street.

How to use this principle today:  Simply go for a walk today and look for money.  You are sure to find at least a penny somewhere.  Pick it up and thank the universe for bringing money into your life.  Let your subconscious mind know that you are open and willing to accept money from any source.

As well, apply this principle in your working life.  If you have been undercharging for your services, raise your prices.  If you are not earning what you feel you should, ask for a raise.  And whenever anyone gives you anything, especially money, accept it graciously and give thanks.

Please … I beg you to follow along for the next two days to get every drop of this secret sauce.

Yes, your mind is incredibly powerful, and quite frankly, it’s a double-edge sword.  The stories you tell yourself, the things you believe about yourself, and the way you talk to yourself can either be

Today! May 14, 2021 Good morning. One year ago, oil prices went negative as traders feared that the pandemic would lead to prolonged drops in oil use and got caught in trades they couldn’t get out of.  Today, oil and gasoline prices have held up well in inventory reports.  However, supply issues remain in the South and up and down the East Coast, even as Colonial pipeline paid a $5 million ransom to the hackers who shut down their system.  A number of states have declared emergencies as supplies have run low. It just goes to show that oil, one

Good morning. Meme stocks are back!  Well, sort of. A spike in companies like AMC Entertainment (AMC) and GameStop (GME) occurred yesterday.  GameStop was even halted multiple times on the way up (but not on the way down).  Oddly, this may be an early sign that markets are looking for a short-term bottom, given the sharp reversals higher. On CNBC, analyst Jim Cramer came out against the traders of meme stocks using sites like Reddit’s Wall Street Bets, to find the meme stock opportunities in the first place.  Tough words for someone whose television show features sound effects.  But for

Good morning. The good news?  Inflation has slightly slowed on a year-over-year basis, for the first time in seven months.  The bad news?  It’s still high at 8.3 percent.  And it came in higher than expectations. Looking at the data shows some reasons for the unexpected strength.  Most components of CPI still rose more than 6 percent in April.  But soaring food prices – which we’ve warned about fairly often — were a big contributor.  Another big move higher was record airfare prices, as high fuel costs and a reopened economy drove prices up. The data doesn’t give too much

Good morning. Typically, growth stocks lead the market.  That’s because these companies have the ability to scale up rapidly, and one of the best signs of a stock heading higher over the long haul is increased earnings. Yet every few years, value stocks have their time to shine.  A year ago, Warren Buffett’s performance as being derided.  Yet he’s buying stocks now.  In contrast, Ark Innovation, the hypergrowth fund managed by Cathie Wood, is now not just down relative to Buffett — but it’s underperforming the S&P 500 since its inception. Can these trends reverse in time?  Yes.  Will they

Good morning. Any econ 101 student can tell you that there’s a lag effect between something like, say, the creation of trillions of dollars in spending, and inflation rates reflecting that.  We’re seeing that trend play out today, with the highest inflation levels in decades. The good news?  Some of that new money first went to financial markets, rather than in goods and services.  That helped keep many things affordable, especially during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic.  But today, we’re seeing the impacts of those past lockdowns (and current ones).  And we’re seeing that handing out money directly

Good morning. People don’t mind inflation when it hits things like assets.  When stocks and home prices are rising, consumers feel wealthier.  This “wealth effect” tends to be beneficial to spending, which then become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The 2009-2020 market rally started with this effect.  The bank bailouts propped up the banks, but didn’t cause inflation on Main Street.  Today, thanks to the stimulus measures during the pandemic, Main Street went on a spending binge.  That’s caused a reverse wealth effect as the prices of goods like food and utilities are rising at a rapid rate — but now asset
