Oct 22nd @ 11:07 am

October 22, 2012 Twenty-five years later, are there any lasting lessons from the October 1987 stock market crash? You may recall that on October 19, 1987, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted 22.6 percent.

I am the Federal Reserve, hear me roar.

In an eagerly awaited announcement, the Fed [...]

Margaret Thatcher Had It Right

Jun 25th @ 12:37 pm

June 25, 2012 While nobody knows what the future holds, one powerful person came pretty close to accurately predicting the problems Europe is having with the euro – a full 17 years before the current crisis began in 2010. Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher strongly resisted having Britain join the single currency and, instead, [...]

Guest Commentary – Weekly Market Update

Apr 9th @ 6:20 am

When in doubt, blame it on the weather. It’s human nature to want to ascribe a reason to everything that happens in the world. Rather than feeling like it’s all random, we always want to know why the market went up or why bats hang upside down or why white is the most popular car [...]
