The NEWS SucksGood morning.
If you’ve ever climbed a mountain there are several points where you think that you’re at the top.  Then after a few more steps you realize that there is a lot more to go.  This aptly describes the market right now.  Is what appearing to be a precipice really the top, or is it just a pause before another rally?
Fed Chairman Powell’s speech today at Jackson Hole didn’t exactly give a clear decision on their stance on inflation and Speaker Pelosi saying the they won’t budge on stimulus makes the pool of assets the Fed stands ready to buy isn’t growing.  This, my friends, is the definition of a conundrum and the spike in the VIX is an indication of the uncertainty.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

The Fed Just Changed the Definition of Saving by Vic Lederman
What SavingsThe biggest banks and money managers have done everything they can to keep this under wraps.  They know that seeing negative interest rates scares people.  Money managers have simply done the unthinkable to hide it from you.  But how?  Let’s get into it…
These investment managers are all slashing the fees on their money market accounts.  But don’t be fooled.  They’re not doing this as a kind gesture.  They’re cutting fees because if they don’t… their money market accounts would show negative yields.
Simply put, the most basic form of cash savings in the U.S. has effectively turned negative… only to be saved by a cut in fees.  That means U.S. rates have, in a practical sense, entered negative territory.  Now, the big money managers sure as heck don’t want you to see this.  That’s why they’re cutting fees.  The goal is to make it look like your account isn’t losing money.  But outside of this fee reduction, it is.  And fees can only be cut so far.  So given the current trend in rates, actual losses are likely just around the corner.  All of this is to the detriment of savers.
The message is as clear as it gets.  If you’re sitting on a pile of cash, trying to be a “good saver,” Uncle Sam is going to chew you up.  The craziest part of this is that most mom-and-pop investors have no idea this is happening.  And most folks believe that keeping a large chunk of their savings in cash is prudent.  That’s how it’s supposed to work.  You save money, and it pays off in the future.  But the Fed has changed the rules of the game.  The new rules say, “sitting on cash guarantees you lose money.”  And you can’t fight the Fed.  You’ll never beat it at its own game.  Now, more than ever, you need to be invested.  Investing is the new saving.  How you navigate these changes will determine whether or not you preserve your wealth.  And thanks to the Fed, your hand is forced.  So please, act now.

Does the Law of Attraction Really Work?

The Law of Attraction has been touted as the positive thinking approach to easily manifesting your dream life.  But when you follow the commonly known steps on how to activate the power of the Law of Attraction in your life, and you still don’t see the results you want, you may question if the Law of Attraction really works.

You may even ask yourself, “Am I just doing it wrong?”

the secretHowever, the reality is that many people don’t have a full understanding of how the Law of Attraction actually works.  This is through no fault of their own.  Films like “The Secret,” while wonderful in many ways, only offer a partial explanation of how the Law of Attraction works.

For example, many people have come to believe that having a clear vision of what you would love, and then sitting and visualizing yourself achieving your goals and dreams, is all that it takes to manifest those goals and dreams into reality.

In reality however, there is more to the Law of Attraction than just this.

To activate the full power of the Law of Attraction in your life, you can’t simply sit around visualizing what you want and expect good things to come to you.  You must also begin taking action on your goals and dreams!  Even taking one small step on a regular basis.

Taking action on your goals and dreams is a very important ingredient in the process of moving them from the realm of imagination into reality.  To activate the full power of the Law of Attraction in your life, it’s also important to know that in addition to the Law of Attraction, there are actually 10 more Universal Laws that govern how all things are created in the Universe.  Whether you’re aware of them or not, these 11 Universal Laws are at work everywhere and at all times.

1.  The Law of Thinking

2.  The Law of Supply

3.  The Law of Attraction

4.  The Law of Receiving

5.  The Law of Increase

6.  The Law of Compensation

7.  The Law of Forgiveness

8.  The Law of Non-Resistance

9.  The Law of Sacrifice

10.  The Law of Obedience

11.  The Law of Success

Once you understand how these laws work, and how to operate in harmony with them, you’ll shift into a higher frequency of thought.  As a result, you’ll find that you begin experiencing a lot more freedom and flow in all areas of your life!  😉

How To Win The Day With every sunrise comes opportunity.  Each day is a figurative clean slate — another chance at getting it right and moving the ball closer to the goal line.  Regardless of what happened yesterday, we have the chance to start anew each morning. And the morning sets the tone for the entire day.  You own the morning, you win the day.  The happiest, healthiest, and most successful people know this.  They embrace it, and they use it to their advantage.  They build morning rituals to establish the foundation for the day. Here are 6 things they

Good morning. The biggest bombshell from the latest Fed meeting was the acknowledgement that inflation was coming in far higher than expected.  While the Fed continues its policy of trying to talk the market into always going up, some see a tapering of its asset purchases sooner rather than later. While that doesn’t mean higher interest rates right away, what it does mean is a big slowdown in money creation and addition to the central bank’s balance sheet.  That’s likely why both bond yields and gold prices have been dropping.  While tapering might spook the market, the prospect of lower

Good morning. Yesterday’s Federal Reserve meeting minutes kept interest rates at 0 percent, as expected.  And the Fed isn’t ready to taper its asset purchases (money printing) anytime soon.  But in trying to please everyone, the central bank sometimes ends up pleasing no one. The central bank made a big revision in its inflation estimates, from 2.4 percent to 3.4 percent.  While calling higher inflation “transitory,” the market isn’t so sure.  And, after the March meeting indicated no potential for an interest rate hike until 2024, there’s now an increasing possibility of a rate hike in 2023. The only real

Good morning. Michael Burry is a fund manager best known for going against the housing market in the runup to the meltdown.  Today, Burry sees inflation as the biggest threat to the economy.  And with prior stimulus measures boosting the price of everything from stocks to housing, the biggest threat is a nudge into hyperinflation.  Burry sees that happening this year.  Burry also sees the stock market as not only the greatest market bubble of all time, but the biggest by at least “two orders of magnitude.”  As investors adjust their return expectations for inflation, that bubble may burst. Time

Good morning. Most financial news is predicated around the idea that markets are either going up or down.  But sometimes, like now, indices are largely trading sideways.  When that happens, traders will start to look for clues as to what happens when the sideways trend ends. For most market conditions, a sideways trend can last anywhere from 6-12 months in part of a broader bull market.  That looks like the case here, given that most indices are still near all-time highs.  But it’s a time to find companies that have been hit the hardest and look set for the biggest

Good morning. There’s an old Wall Street saying that the cure for high prices is… high prices.  That’s because when prices are high, competition comes into play and customers seek substitutes.  Recent inflation data showing a jump in home and car prices (both new and used), is also leading to potential buyers to hold off on making a purchase. That could reduce demand enough to keep prices from heading higher in those areas.  A slowdown in governmental assistance to the economy in the form of stimulus checks and high spending may also help nip this rising inflation in the bud.
