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!  😉

Good morning. Hedge funds have been selling their tech stocks for 9 of the past 10 sessions, based on brokerage data.  What’s more, these funds have been selling more than they own, essentially going short.  That’s a huge reason for the weakness in tech in the past few weeks, even as the overall markets remain near all-time highs. The last time funds were this short was back in late December, right before a surge in some smaller-cap tech names in January and February.  Based on this data, traders may want to look at some call options on the tech space

Good morning. Most sectors of the economy have been on fire this year.  But, there’s one area that’s steeply in a bear market.  It’s the media, more specifically the news media.  Cable news outlets have reported viewer drops as much as 50 percent.  And the New York Times Company (NYT) reported a sharp slowdown in growth. It’s no surprise that the news media benefited in the past few years from the public’s interest in all things Donald Trump.  Now, with Trump out of the White House and the media avoiding stories about him, it’s no surprise that viewers are going

Good morning. It’s been a great earnings season.  But companies like Amazon (AMZN) are now in correction territory, down 10 percent, since reporting record blowout numbers.  Other big tech names are in the same spot.  And smaller tech plays?  They’re likely already in a bear market. It’s a combination of factors at work.  The first is rising inflation numbers. The second is the prospect of higher interest rates to curb inflation.  And finally there’s the fact that companies are coming off of earnings that look great compared to a year ago at the start of the pandemic.  All these factors

Good morning. Online auction site eBay (EBAY) became huge in the 1990s thanks to the demand for Beanie Babies.  As the central site for that fad, the company was able to expand and survive the internet bubble. Now, the company is looking to enable cryptocurrency payments, to better serve its customers.  It’s also looking to break into the NFT, or non-fungible token market.  NFTs are digital assets like a picture or song.  While they can be copied, blockchain data provides the owner of the NFT with the assurance that they are, in fact, the original owner.  NFTs have been big

Good morning. The stock market had its steepest and shortest bear market last year, with a contraction of nearly 30 percent within the span of a month.  Now, a year into a recovery, the rally in stocks has started to slow. One reason? Growing policy uncertainty.  Stocks sold off Friday as a Fed President made the case for housing getting into bubble territory and a need for interest rate hikes next year.  Just like in the early 2020s, in the post-financial crisis rebound, fears of reduced monetary policy are usually good to create a pullback in markets. We’re still a
